Last year I had so many veggies coming out of the garden, I started to look for new recipes to use them all up. I’d never made my own relish before, but we liked the sweet relish that my MIL had given us the year before. So, after an email or two, I had her […]
I love fresh peas from the garden, and sugar snap peas are no exception. They really can’t get any easier, as they are peas that you don’t have to shell, you eat the shell with the peas. Perfect! My sister-in-law gave us these sugar snap peas fresh from her garden, and we had them for […]
I have been playing around with different salads this summer. They are great because they can be made ahead, which makes them great to take to a barbecue or even camping. I’ve never really had a black bean salad before, but decided to give it a try this summer. I tried one recipe, and was […]
Mmm…fresh corn on the cob. What a handy way to eat corn. It’s like God put it on a stick for us, and we all know how much fun food is to eat that comes on a stick (like Popsicle and corn dogs, for example). Today I saw a road-side stand selling fresh corn on […]
It’s summer here. In summer it’s great to be able to throw together a salad, top it with some grilled meat & have that as your main course. They are great because they can be made ahead and transported to picnics or barbecues too. There is so much fresh fruit & vegetables available right now, […]
I really love a good baked potato when I have a BBQ. However, more often than not, I forget to start the potatoes early enough. Why is it that barbecued meat takes minutes (usually), and the potatoes to go with the meat, take an hour? Instead of doing the potatoes on the grill, I usually […]

A lot of the fries that are fried in restaurants are deep fried in large deep fryers that also fry other breaded items, like chicken fingers and fish sticks. Those items contain gluten, which is then transfered to the […]
These potatoes were SO good! A great alternative to your typical baked potato, and they don’t take much more time to make either. They can even be made ahead, and baked when you are ready to eat.
These mashed potatoes are really kicked up a notch! They include your other vegetables, as well as a great garlic flavour. The hidden kick comes from the jalapeno pepper that is cooked together with the vegetables. We really enjoyed this version of mashed potatoes, and I hope you will too!
