News that the classic Vancouver institution known as The Elbow Room is closing got me thinking about a few of the Vancouver restaurants that have closed. The first one that comes to mind is the Hastings Street seafood restaurant affectionately known as The Only. Right down in the heart of the downtown Eastside, The Only […]

The Least Favourite Holiday Treats

I posted this picture on my A Dad in the Burbs Facebook Page with the question, “what holiday treat do you detest?” I was quite surprised at the response! People don’t like so many of the traditional Christmas treats! As you can probably tell from my picture, I can’t stand Turtles. I just don’t like […]

BBQ Pit Boys Inspired Bacon and Egg Pie

I was surfing around the YouTube the other day watching videos about grilling and smoking meat when I stumbled across the Barbecue Pit Boys making a Bacon and Egg Pie. What a riot. My favourite line from their video – after they have added 18 eggs to the two and a half pounds of bacon, […]

The A&W Beyond Meat Burger

A&W has recently introduced a new burger they are calling the “Beyond Meat Burger”. It is a burger made entirely of plant-based protein. So obviously, I had to try it. What would I find? The commercials I’ve seen suggested they are pretty good – scenes of people biting into the burgers and being surprised to […]

My Attempt at Making French Bread

This past weekend I was doing some more of my cabin-cooking and I started reading a couple classic books about baking that got me into experimenting with making bread. I set aside my cast iron dutch oven and opted to use a plain old cookie sheet to try make a long loaf of French bread. […]
