Asian Chicken & Veggie Salad Recipe

Tweet I love salads.  Especially in the summer.  And I particularly like when a salad is so packed with healthy and delicious foods, that it can easily stand on its own as a lunch, or a light dinner.   Last week I was lucky enough to come across such a salad.  I found it in a Foodland Ontario booklet, which gets distributed around the province in grocery stores and magazines.  Those Foodland people deserve...

Super Guacamole

Tweet Scrambling for snacks to serve during the big game?  Are you tired of the same old players (chips, Cheesies, and pretzels) trying to make a comeback on your living room table?  Then you, my friend, are ready for a bowl of Super Guacamole!   This guacamole is fresh, zippy and bright.  This guacamole will not let you down when you are in the home stretch (on your sofa).  This is because the avocados are...

Coffee Grinder Paradise

Tweet Bleary eyed and still half asleep I make my way to the kitchen.  I have one thing on my mind.  How quickly can I get coffee into my body?  In my trance-like state I reach for the ancient Moulinex coffee grinder that has become a morning mainstay for many years now.    Suddenly, CRACK!  Just as I plug it in, I hear a loud popping noise that’s shortly followed by a nasty, smoky smell.   Ok, now I’m...

Easy Miso-Noodle Soup

Tweet A quick and easy soup to warm you up during the cold winter months.   Easy Miso-Noodle Soup Ingredients: 3 portions fresh-frozen udon noodles – We buy our udon noodles fresh-frozen, and they usually come wrapped in individual portions for convenience.  We tend to like lots of noodles in our soup, so we use 3 portions for 2 people.  If you do not want as many noodles in your soup, you can just as easily...

Spanish Tortilla Recipe for Two

Tweet This is a dish that I originally saw on America’s Test Kitchen, and have made regularly since that time.  It’s like a large, fluffy frittata that is full of vegetables.  Served with a green salad, it makes a easy, tasty lunch!   I played around with the recipe so that it is good for two people (some ingredients were halved, others were not).   Caution:  This is a typical recipe that you might find...

Instant-Read Thermometer Buyer’s Guide

Tweet I am in the market for a good instant-read thermometer.  Through my research for this site, I’ve come to realize the importance of ensuring the internal temperature of meat reaches a specific temperature for it to be deemed safe to eat.  This is one area of cooking where ‘winging it’ is not encouraged.  But, for some reason I haven’t been able to make a decision on which one to buy.    Perhaps...

Barbecue in Winter: A Love Story

Tweet How good is barbecue in the middle of the winter?  Pretty darn good.  I know because we just had some last weekend.  Somehow, when you cook steak on a barbecue in cold temperatures, the meat seems to be extra  juicy and tender.  Or maybe it’s just a figment of my imagination.  What I do know is that the barbecue aromas that fill the neighborhood are enough to get even the most ornery neighbor to poke...
