Rustic Italian Pizza

October 9th, 2014 · 1 Comment · Dinner, Lunch, Pizza

My recent adventures in pizza began last week, when I had a few people over for pizza before heading to the Beach House concert. Although I made many delicious pizzas, given that I was hosting people, I didn’t have time to take any pictures for the blog! Fortunately I had a bunch of dough leftover, […]

Chicken Cacciatore

September 9th, 2013 · 7 Comments · Chicken, Dinner, Easy, Pasta

I’ve been all about making food with fun names these days. Blueberry Cla-foo-tee, chicken catch-a-tory, they are fun to say and even more fun to eat! As part of our back-to-school special for CTV Morning Live, Carlene and I were tasked with making easy, budget friendly meals for students. Carlene settled on making the always […]

Italian Portobello “Pizza”

July 17th, 2013 · No Comments · Appetizer, Cheese, Dinner, Easy, Lunch, Pizza, Side, Vegetable

This is one of those “non-recipe” recipes, where I just toss a bunch of ingredients on something until i’m satisfied! Those are the best kind of recipes anyways, right? Now you may have noticed this isn’t actually a pizza, more a faux-pizza, using delicious toppings you might find on a pizza but rather than pizza […]

Porchetta Sandwich

May 9th, 2013 · 1 Comment · Dinner, Fresh herbs, left overs, Lunch, Pork, Roast, Sandwich

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 […]

Porchetta Pork Shoulder

May 8th, 2013 · 20 Comments · Dinner, Fresh herbs, Pork, Roast

Ever since eating at Meat & Bread while living in Vancouver (in 2011), I have wanted to try making my own porchetta. It’s been a long time coming, but I have finally made it!! While picking up groceries at my local Sobey’s I noticed they started stocking pork shoulder in the meat section, seizing the […]

The Mozzarella Stick Grilled Cheese

April 29th, 2013 · 4 Comments · Cheese, Dinner, grilled cheese, Lunch, National Grilled Cheese Month, Sandwich

Technically a mozzarella stick is already grilled cheese…The bread just dried up, fell apart and reunited in the form of crumbs surrounding that delicious stick of mozzarella! Of course, I wasn’t about to make a mozzarella stick and call it a grilled cheese, so I went about breading this delicious sandwich with panko crumbs to […]

Prosciutto & Gouda Grilled Cheese

April 28th, 2013 · 2 Comments · Cheese, Dinner, Lunch, National Grilled Cheese Month, Sandwich

Reminiscing on blog posts of the past, I recalled the Prosciutto & Smoked Gouda Egg Sandwich I posted a couple years ago (WOW it’s really been THAT long?), and knew I had to fit those flavours into our 30 days of grilled cheese! Given that this sandwich was just going to consist of Gouda and prosciutto (no […]

In an effort to use up all the meat and cheese in my fridge, I am constantly running ingredients through my mind trying to think of delicious pairings. Upon gazing into the heavenly glow of my fridge, my eyes settled on several ingredients: roasted red pepper, spicy Italian capocollo (/capicolla), red onion, and Gouda cheese. It […]

The Italian Grilled Cheese

April 18th, 2013 · No Comments · Cheese, Dinner, grilled cheese, Lunch, National Grilled Cheese Month, Sandwich

Three Italian deli meats, three Italian cheeses, boy was I looking forward to this! The spicy meat, balanced by tons of cheese oozing everywhere, the bite of red onion, tang of red wine vinaigrette, and notes of tomato throughout, all I’ve gotta say it Buon appetito! I felt like an Italian eating this one!

The Lasagna Grilled Cheese

April 9th, 2013 · 8 Comments · Beef, Cheese, Dinner, grilled cheese, Lunch, National Grilled Cheese Month, Sandwich

Well folks, we have a top contender for grilled cheese of the month…. But really is it fair for this three cheese, meat tomato, etc, etc, combo to be going up against featherweights like “The Slim”?? Maybe not, but WHO CARES!! This was one MEGA DELICIOUS grilled cheese! It’s like having lasagna, without actually having […]
