Made a lobster roll? Still got leftovers? Don’t like lobster rolls? Love pasta? Well then this dish is for you! Another easy recipe utilizing leftover (or fresh) lobster. Given that i’m not a huge fan of really rich pasta sauce, I have made a butter free sauce, allowing the lobster and parmesan cheese to provide plenty of rich, hearty flavour!

Let’s start off with some confession time.
Confession: I have never had a lobster roll.
Now that I’ve got that off my chest we can proceed.

In my last post, I made Porchetta inspired by the Meat & Bread’s Porchetta sandwich in Vancouver, so obviously I had to do a sandwich post too! It’s really the Porchetta that’s the star here, because there is not much else going on in this sandwich, just delicious roasted pork, crackling, and salsa verde. You’ve got crackling, what more do you need!?
If you plan on making this delicious sandwich, refer to my last post to make the Porchetta and salsa verde (which you should definitely make because it’s AMAZING). Continue reading

I believe this sandwich could be a turning point in my life, marking the start of an exciting new relationship with mustard and pickles. I have never been a huge fan of mustard, and hesitated to put a bunch on this sandwich, but I did it anyways, and am sure glad I did! The mix of mustard and pickle, with the Swiss cheese, and all the hearty meat was so great!
I know this recipe isn’t much different than an actual Cuban sandwich, so to rocket it into grilled cheese territory I loaded it up with Swiss cheese! Cheese on the bottom, cheese in the middle and cheese on top! Gluing all those wonderful ingredients together into a beautiful, beeautiful sandwich! Praise Cuba!!

After making the Herb Rubbed Pork Loin the other week, in the spirit of Meat & Bread I felt obligated to make a sandwich with the leftovers! Unfortunately, I only made the pork loin to test out the spice blend and didn’t have any crackling for the sandwich! Regardless, this was a pretty tasty sandwich, and I can’t wait til I make porchetta so I can have the real deal!

After a perfect afternoon of ice fishing (okay well not perfect-perfect, because we didn’t even get a single bite and almost hit a deer with the truck – literally missing it by centimeters, but it was perfect in the sense that we got to spend some time enjoying the great Canadian outdoors)…. okay back on topic, after icing fishing, the Good Man and I headed home for a lovely prepared dinner thanks to our good friend, the slow cooker (aka. the crock pot). This recipe for pulled pork is sweet, savoury with a bit of a kick and most of all, the meat is tender and delicious! We served it up with some Whole Wheat Biscuits and a basic Caesar Salad and the meal was complete. But let’s get to the recipe, so you can get cooking! Continue reading

Here we go with another grilled cheese! This recipe was actually the sandwich I was originally going to do for our CTV Morning Live cooking segment before they suggested a game day theme! No problems switching things up on our end, it just means extra blog posts! Since we were going to do holiday inspired recipes, this is what I created. Not only does it get you ready for Christmas, it gives all our American followers more leftover ideas!

It has been quite the weekend for food blogging! In an effort to prepare for BS’ in the Kitchen’s first TV appearance (CTV Morning Live Saskatoon – we’re on air shortly after 8:30AM Friday, November 23rd so tune in if you’re local!), Carlene and I have been brainstorming a number of holiday inspired recipes, this being one of them! We picked up plenty of groceries including turkey, egg nog, and cranberry sauce, so you can except a few more recipes in the coming week! This was probably the least holiday inspired recipes (just the cranberry), but it was EXCELLENT! A great blend of tart and sour cranberry sauce, bitter dark chocolate, mild cream cheese smushed between french toast! I hope you’re drooling.

One of my “fridge struggles” is finding something to do with leftover food, especially with the common left over items like rice and pasta. The other night I had two items on hand: left over wild ancient grain rice and fresh walleye from a fishing trip with my dad. So off to the kitchen I went and concocted this recipe. It was also a crowd pleaser even to the most difficult to impress (aka. our dad who calls everything we make “hippy food”, loved these cakes).
