Zucchinis…you either love or hate them…or rather, you love them but then hate them because you have so many at the end of the gardening season that you can’t possibly fathom eating another one of those massive green squashes.
Yeah that sounds about right.

Here is a recipe that just makes sense! Taking traditional spaghetti and meat sauce, but swapping the pasta for squash. I apologize in advance to those who like very specific recipes. I made meat sauce the previous night and used the leftover sauce when making this, so i’m estimating the measurements, but hey! It’s a meat sauce. If you are measuring everything you’re doing it wrong! It’s all about adding in the main component, adding a dash of this, a dash of that, tasting, adjusting, and enjoying!

It’s that time of the year… Squash season!
Thanks to my mother planting copious amount of spaghetti squash this year, I have been racking my brain, trying to think of different ways to use that delicious vegetable! In the past, I have always kept it quite simple, roasting the spaghetti squash, then mixing in some diced tomato and onion, which makes a perfectly delicious meal. But this time I wanted to really take advantage of the squash and the fact that it makes a perfect little boat for other ingredients when cut in half.

As you may know from this post I wrote a few weeks ago, I have joined the Tablespoon.com team of bloggers, and have been working on some exciting video projects! I recently wrapped up the third one, and have a couple more in the pipeline that I will be sharing as they are published!
When the idea for a campfire video was proposed, I loved the idea, and had the perfect plan for it! My parents live on a beautiful acreage that I knew would provide a great backdrop for everything! Unfortunately, the day I decided to make the video, it was really windy, hardly ideal for making a campfire (especially one I would be filming)! Undeterred, I set about making a wind barrier around the fire pit, and soldiered on, roasting, eating and filming Many delicious crescent dogs!

My family has always been big on leftovers, and as a result I embrace the ability to re-purpose yesterdays meal into something new and delicious! More often than not, it’s something simple like a sandwich or quesadilla, but depending on what you’re left with you can make some pretty awesome meals! In this case, after a work related function, my mom was left with a bunch of roast beef and potatoes, which became this delicious twice baked potato!
Scouring my fridge for complementary ingredients, I found blue cheese and mushrooms, which goes great with both roast beef and potatoes! Combine all of those things together and you have a great side dish or appetizer for your dinner!

Thanks to my dad’s rigorous tournament fishing schedule every summer, my family did a LOT of camping, going nearly every weekend! As such, I have many fond memories growing up that revolve around our camping expeditions. Singing “Down by the Bay” as many times as possible to annoy Carlene, making every funny face I could think of while driving to annoy Carlene, “accidentally” crossing over “The Line” of the backseat to annoy Carlene… Okay so you get it, I spent a lot of time trying to annoy my sister!

Yesterday I posted a simple Roasted Cauliflower recipe, and today I am following it up with this delicious roasted cauliflower mash! Given how impressed I was with the flavour of the roasted cauliflower, I was even more impressed with these faux mashed potatoes! They were awesome!

Let’s start by saying I don’t really like cauliflower, but I bought some because it was on sale…story of my life. I had high hopes for this head of cauliflower, but I felt the light fading as it sat in my fridge for one month…and then another month…
Yeah. Two months.

Consider this the prelude to my next recipe (Roasted Garlic, Spinach & Bacon Rangoon). This is actually the first time roasting garlic in the oven (typically I just saute a bit in a pan!), but it will definitely not be my last! It’s super easy, and not only does it give you some great tasting garlic, but you can also make garlic infused oil in the process!
After working way too many hours this week, I’m finally getting some well deserved R & R this long weekend, at my girlfriends family’s gorgeous cabin in Columbia Lake, BC. Being so busy at work, I’ve been neglecting my blogging duties, and relaxing at a cabin goes hand in hand with having plenty to eat and drink, which just so happens to go hand in hand with a little blogging!
Not a bad view!
After a friendly neighbour brought over some delicious Taber corn (adding to the already abundant supply on hand), a corn related recipe was definitely in order! Having seen several variations of corn salsa online and in magazines, I decided it was time to whip up my own!
