Cook the noodles, drain in colander, pour back in pan, add already cooked, already hot sauce with all meat/veg in it (if spaghetti or the like) on top. FOLD sauce into noodles with large spatula (like […]

Fragrant Saffron Jewel Rice Fusion

This is a Canadian fusion variation on the traditional saffron jewel rice of the middle east, it dials back the warm spices like cardamom and allspice and adds in vegetables such as grated zucchini or yellow squash. Might add the element of surprise to the “typical potluck/picnic” as it goes well on it’s own for […]

Corn Pasta San Zenone Prairie Harvest

Gluten Free Pasta Reviews

Corn Pasta is an excellent direct pasta substitute that can be used for any recipe that calls for spaghetti, elbow noodles, penne, spiral etc – and the least detectable taste change. We like San Zenone (Prairie Harvest) and Arrowhead mills. This is our favourite by far. Kamut is good as well, it’ll go mushy if […]

Presidents Choice PC Brussels Sprouts

Review: Presidents Choice PC Baby Brussels Sprouts Frozen

I was pleasantly surprised by these Presidents Choice PC Small Sweet Peas. Needing a quick side to an evening meal I tossed these into the grocery cart (along with the PC small sweet peas and a bag or two of Asian vegetables), threw them in a pot when I got home and voila they were done, lovely and delicious. Because of their delicate size they cook up in a snap. Usually I only buy fresh Brussels Sprouts- but after trying these, they’re a new favourite.

Curly Fry Recipe | How to Make Curly Fries

How to Make Curly Fries: I was being lazy one evening, and mostly busy, thus didn’t feel particularly like peeling potatoes. As I’m washing them, I look up and spot my sturdy hand cranked apple peeler/corer/slicer on the wall… hmmm… what the heck… so I plop one of those suckers on and voila! Curly fry heavenliness! We didn’t want all the fat of deep frying (or the mess), therefore, we baked them, just like we do our wedge fries.

This is our recipe…
