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.
Sorry for being a bit absent on the blog lately and an even bigger thanks to Bob for carrying things along and posting some really delicious recipes. Last night I was pretty hungry and after avoiding groceries for the past three weeks, the only thing I really had in my fridge was celery… yup you heard me… boring ol’ celery. So I chopped a bunch up and just started creating and this is what I came up with. It was a great little soup that would best be served as a side soup or an appetizer to a great sandwich (perhaps one of Bob’s fabulous grilled cheeses). Let’s continue to the recipe. Continue reading
To go along with the pulled pork Carlene was making for our Sunday family supper, I wanted a bright, tangy slaw to contrast the rich, smokey pulled pork flavour. With that idea in mind, I went with a cabbage/apple slaw, and started mixing in ingredients until I got what I was looking for!
Even though I love salad, for whatever reason, I never make it for myself. With that realization, I decided it was time to experiment. After tossing some ideas around (bad pun?), this is what I came up with!
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!
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!
Along with wanting to make Baked Onion Rings for quite some time, I had a plan to make Onion Ring Fried Eggs. I had initially come across this great looking recipe, but I wanted to take it to the next level, thus the desire to bake onion rings was born! So in case you didn’t have enough motivation to make Baked Onion Rings, this bonus recipe can give you that extra push!
Baked onion rings have been on my to-do list for a couple months now, so having plenty of free time this long weekend I finally got around to trying them out! While they can be a little bit time consuming (from unpeeled onion – to onion ring in my mouth, it probably took around an hour to an hour and a half), they were definitely worth it!
Parmesan… roasted garlic… fried potatoes… you are pretty much guaranteed your food is going to taste good with those ingredients! This recipe is super easy and very tasty!
