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 […]
All the cooking related stuff we do.
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 […]
We decided to prepare a grilled cheese sandwich lunch over the fire outside and all things considered, the sandwiches turned out pretty good, even if the cheese didn’t get as ooey and gooey as we would’ve liked.
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 […]
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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
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 […]
