Between 2 Buns Food Truck

Up until very recently the best burger I had ever eaten was from a little hole in the wall place called Duane’s Ono-Char Burger on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. That is until I tried a burger from an equally unpretentious place – the Between 2 Buns food truck. And when I say the Between […]

Air Fryer Blooming Onion

Air Fryer Blooming Onion

Under the heading “Learn to stay in your own lane” I bring you my second attempt at an air fryer blooming onion. And spoiler alert, it is still not pretty – nor very tasty. I started out with the onion – cut into segments and yes, I probably cut too close to the base of […]

Sourdough Bread

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 […]
