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 […]

Bacon and Eggs for Breakfast

Arguably, my favourite meal is bacon and eggs. And, I am getting to liking the texture of eggs when I cook them in cream. This time, unlike the last time I tried to cook eggs in cream, I persevered and cooked the eggs sunny side up – in the cream. Same routine, pour the cream […]

Home Cooking Fondant Potatoes

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 […]

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 […]

Refrigerator Pickles

I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately – I just haven’t felt like writing or sharing anything here nor on my Instagram account. No real reason other than asking myself what’s the point if any of this “sharing”. Anyway, I posted awhile ago about the refrigerator pickles I made. And, well, they’re excellent. […]

Homemade Refrigerator Pickles

I got a bag of cucumbers from my Mom’s garden this week and I decided to try to make refrigerator pickles. It was super easy. First thing I did was thinly slice the cucumbers and an onion before putting them into a large stainless bowl. I gave a generous shake of salt onto the cukes […]

Cauliflower Mac n Cheese

The kids and I quite enjoy watching Chef Jamie Oliver create dishes like this cauliflower Mac n cheese – meals that are so simple, accessible to kids, and yet nutritious and delicious. And after watching him make it, we decided we could also make it. Unfortunately I did not get any pics of us actually […]
