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...

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...

Deal: Rachael Ray from Furi Coppertail Cutlery Set with Bamboo Case

Tweet I guess I’ve been on a bit of a knife kick lately.  But, I’ll make no apologies because of *knowing* what a difference a quality knife can make to the ease of your cooking routine.   And this I know from first-hand experience… ever try chopping all the vegetables for a stew with a dollar store knife?  Or even worse, a steak knife?  Your hand starts begging for mercy after the first couple of...

Deal: Wusthof Gourmet Knife Block Set (18-pc.) is now 46% off

Tweet To really express yourself, in the culinary sense, you need to have a good set of knives at your disposal.  In every sense, your knives are an extension of you in the kitchen.  Fidgeting with dull blades when you are preparing veggie-heavy recipes will cause your frustration to rise to unhealthy proportions.   Personally, I have found that with the right equipment (sharp knives, great wooden chopping board)...
