Tomato Coulis

September 20th, 2014 · 2 Comments · Condiment

Although I never made it on to Masterchef Canada, while I was waiting to hear back from them, I wanted to practice some of the basics of cooking, and that means sauces! Fortunately living with chefs meant there were all sorts of great cookbooks hanging around. As part of expanding my knowledge of the basics, […]

Butternut Squash & Thyme Tart

September 18th, 2014 · No Comments · Dessert

This dessert makes me happy because, well it’s dessert, and dessert is delicious! But on the other hand, it makes me sad, because Celeste, one of my old room-mates made it, and now she is on a cross country road trip to Newfoundland with her fiancĂ©e (and my other room-mate) Ross, which means they no […]

Salted Caramel Apple Hand Pies

September 11th, 2014 · 2 Comments · Dessert, Fruit, Pie

Over this summer, a good friend and I have been going out for evening trail rides every Friday. These are such a treat, nothing beats the relaxation of good friends, beautiful scenery of the Saskatchewan prairies and a horse. Before we head out, we eat dinner with her adorable little family. I recently made these […]

Yum Yum Sweet Pickles

September 6th, 2014 · 9 Comments · Canning, Easy, Vegetable

As many of you know I’m an avid bowhunter and now that September is here, hunting is in full swing. One of my favorite parts about hunting is being able to spend time with my “second” family, the Kuiack’s. After coming in for a visit, Heather (my other mom) sent me home with TONS of […]

Chimichurri Chicken

August 28th, 2014 · 1 Comment · Barbecue, Chicken, Dinner, Fresh herbs

Barbecue + Chicken + Fresh Herbs = Magic. I’ve never been much of a mathematician, but that is one equation I can wrap my head around! Fall is coming waaay to quick in Saskatoon and I’m not happy about it! While I love Fall and the beautiful colours it brings, sadly, it means barbecue season […]

Chimichurri Sauce

August 28th, 2014 · 2 Comments · Fresh herbs, Side

As evidenced by some of my recent posts, like herb-rubbed Beer Can Chicken, and Fried Egg on Sourdough, my cooking has been all about keeping it fresh! With an abundance of herbs and vegetables in my backyard, it’s been a great influence on my cooking. In the spirit of keeping things fresh, I wanted to […]

Chocolate Raspberry Pie Bars

August 11th, 2014 · 1 Comment · Dessert, Easy, Fruit

Just like Saskatoon berries, raspberries are in full force at our family acreage. Raspberries are great for freezing, eating fresh or making jams, but I was interested in making something more with them, so when I saw this recipe on Pinterest I knew I had to give it a try! A friend also tried this […]

Saskatoon Berry Pie with Homemade Pie Crust

August 9th, 2014 · 5 Comments · Dessert, Easy, Fruit, Pie

Where we come from, a tasty little berry lives in the plenty: The Saskatoon Berry. These berries are sweet, slightly tart and nutty in flavor. Our parents have quite a few Saskatoon berry bushes in their fruit orchard, so come late July and early August, it’s Saskatoon berry galore. I made this pie for a […]

Ice Cream Tacos

August 1st, 2014 · No Comments · Dessert

As many of you may have already read from Bob’s Beer Can Chicken post, we were recently back on CTV Morning Live with our good friend and fabulous anchor (and apparently my twin – as I was stopped at a local coffee shop later that afternoon asking if I co-hosted the morning news!), Stephanie Massicotte.

Beer Can Chicken

July 31st, 2014 · 1 Comment · Barbecue, Chicken, Dinner, Fresh herbs

Carlene and I have finally made our re-appearance together on CTV, whipping up barbecue recipes for August long! Steph from CTV made a special request for Beer Can Chicken, and left us up to decide what else we wanted to do, so Carlene settled on Ice Cream Tacos! It’s actually a bit absurd that this […]
