My Favourite Sourdough Bread Recipe

Long before the pandemic hit and everybody started baking sourdough bread, I was already making my own sourdough bread. I had my own starter who we affectionately call Floyd. Over the last couple of years I have tried many different bread recipes, techniques, and tricks. Some with success, others not so much. However I have […]

Air Fryer Prime Rib Eye Steak

As I said a month ago, I now have an air fryer in the kitchen and I have really grown to love it. I love it so much that I used it to “air fryer” a prime rib eye steak! Admittedly, the air fryer does not do everything well. I tried making homemade onion rings […]

The Air Fryer; My Newest Kitchen Gadget

Cooking Chicken Pot Pie Outside

My kids are really into creating ASMR style videos so I agreed to have them film me prepping and cooking a chicken pot pie outside – over a fire in a brick oven that we put together for the day. The recipe I followed is from the Jamie Oliver cookbook, 5 Ingredients. Simple and easy […]

The other day my daughter was cruising around Pinterest looking at interesting food prep ideas as kids do these days when she came across a video of a guy making Fondant Potatoes. The sort of irreverent way that he narrated the video intrigued her so she watched it and then asked me to watch it […]

Eggs Poached in Cream

On a recent trip to the cabin I tried poaching eggs in cream and the results were pretty darn delicious. I started my breakfast prep by baking a pan of brown sugar bacon in the oven. Then I heated my non-stick skillet to a medium-low temperature before scooping a tablespoon or two of bacon fat […]

Sausage Roll Follow Up

After my recent attempt at homemade sausage rolls I mentioned that I wanted to try again with a couple twists. And I did. As I said in my previous sausage roll post, I wanted to try again with better quality sausages and to make two smaller sausage rolls out of one piece of puff pastry. […]

Homemade Sausage Rolls

Sunday morning I was surfing around Instagram when a Jamie Oliver video describing how to make “cheater” homemade sausage rolls came across my feed. Knowing that I was going to be making lunch for the kids later in the day I figured why not…”cheater” homemade sausage rolls? Maybe the kids would like them. Sunday morning […]
