  • Day Two of Our Great Getaway This was the view outside of our Chalet!  The sun was just coming out after having rained....and after that we had sunshine for the rest of our trip! Now for a New Recipe - and that dreaded dang darn warped frying pan! MARINATED CHICKEN BREASTS You can’t go wrong with Marinated Chicken Breasts!  This was the 2nd dinner  ...
  • Our Great Getaway We had a lovely 4 day getaway that I wanted to share.....sights, food, (I hope sound, if my DH can make that happen?) oh....and one very embarrassing moment!  (if I have the guts to spill it!) Will do a post for each day. Always when we travel, we rent accommodations that provide a kitchen.  I have ...
  • YOGURT DILL BAKED SNAPPER YOGURT DILL BAKED SNAPPER Living on the Westcoast gives us the opportunity to have seafood through out the year.  I try to cook at least one fish or seafood dish each week.  Of course, saving Fresh Wild Salmon for the summer months.  This is an easy, quick,  light, dish, and any white fish would work well. 4-5 snapper fillets washed ...
  • MARINATED ROAST CHICKEN Recently we had a 4 day "get-away".    As usual, I pack as much food from home as I can....will do a travel post down the road.  I had thrown together some ingredients to make a marinade for chicken breasts which I brought along with us. This turned out soooo good, I thought why not use ...
  • MEAT LOAF - RECIPE INSPIRATION BACON AND CHEESE MEATLOAF This is a delicious recipe I  first saw on the Paula Dean show -   Her recipe is called Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf.  You can check her original recipe via the Food Network .  The changes I made was to use ground turkey, and ground pork, as well as using less bacon  than ...
  • SHRIMP AND CALICO SCALLOP ALFREDO PASTA SHRIMP AND CALICO SCALLOP ALFREDO PASTA This recipe turned out soooo good.  It is based on my tomato, bacon, mushroom pasta – and I thought why not make this with SCD whip cream and seafood??? Check my previous post, My Family's Favorite Pie to link onto Karen's site and  get the recipe for SCD Whip Cream. Plus I have recently began using  a ...
  • CHICKEN AND ITALIAN SAUSAGE YUMMINESS CHICKEN AND ITALIAN SAUSAGE YUMMINESS This recipe was inspired by Cooking with Jamie At Home Series.  His show was on T.V. a while back…I remembered the episode,  but did not remember the recipe entirely….turned out really good anyways!  This is a recipe I make often...it is so good!  And with leftovers.....there are endless possibilities! 8 chicken legs ...
  • TOMATO-BACON-COLLARD-PASTA TOMATO-BACON-COLLARD-PASTA TOMATO/BACON/COLLARD/PASTA This was really simple and oh soooo good!   The levels of flavour really stood out.  The smokiness of the bacon, the meaty richness of the mushrooms, the 2 cheeses, the mellowness of the greens and the brightness of the tomatoes and herbs…delicious!  And added bonus:  this would also be great on Spaghetti squash for those ...
  • SAVOURY PORK CHOPS Our town now has a meat market that sells  all natural, hormone free pork, beef, bison, chicken and lamb!  What a difference in flavor and even the texture!  It is a little more costly, but not horrendously so.....and although I can't always buy my meat there, I  do buy  pork and beef  from them.  Perhaps, ...
  • Zucchini Cakes and Rosemary Roasted Yams and Potatoes Zucchini Cakes and Rosemary Roasted Yams and Potatoes ZUCCHINI CAKES I was craving summer fresh vegetables.  So, with this recipe I used my garden frozen fresh zucchini. I did not measure these ingredients, so they are only estimations.  The measurements are equivalent to the size of the zucchini.  In this case, I probably had about 2 cups of shredded, defrosted zucchini. 2-3 cups grated zucchini  Line ...
  • Pan Seared Snapper With Lemon Caper Sauce Pan Seared Snapper With Lemon Caper Sauce The inspiration for this dish came from the book The Flavor Bible, by Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg.  As well, Jamie Oliver - one of his recommended pantry items is capers.  I have to say - this was delicious!  I was surprised as I had never cooked with capers before.  This was easy, and fairly ...
  • Hello world! Hi Quiche! Hello world! Hi Quiche! I introduce my first post with "Daniel's Quiche".  My son is in the film industry.  When he lived at home, we hardly saw him.  He would often work 17 hour days, living his passion, filming.  One day, I saw him come down the driveway with all of his gear, carrying an extra bag, dragging his ...
