It's been a super hectic few weeks here on the home front. I know...seems like I've been saying that a lot lately, but this time, it's REALLY true. Three weeks ago, we moved into our new home and, let me just say, I'd probably be more efficient with my time if I didn'...

Inspiration is a wonderful thing. When you think of it, to inspire means to 'influence with an animating, quickening or exalting influence'. When it comes to cooking, I can get inspired just about anywhere. Sometimes my inspiration comes from a food item I've spied or...

Turkey with all the fixins' is a big thing here in Newfoundland and we all tend to get a bird big enough to feed a small army. There's a good chance you're going to have guests for Christmas Dinner and beyond that, it's nice to have something for stoppers-by to nibble...

This past Sunday was my husband's 50th Birthday. He was adamant that he didn't want a party or big celebration and in fact, said he'd like for the day to quietly slip by without notice. ( Why does it seem that men have a harder time with those milestone birthdays?) I b...

In these times of 'ancestral' eating, turkey has got to be an all-star. Our ancestors used every part of an animal once it had been slaughtered for food. Nothing ever went to waste. I paid homage to my ancestors this week by using every bit of the 20 pound turkey I bou...

My intentions for dinner last night was to cook up a little store-bought fresh tortellini stuffed with cheese in some alfredo sauce and serve it alongside grilled or baked chicken breasts with a little herbs de Provence seasoning. But, as is how life just goes sometime...

Once again this week, things have been more than a little chaotic. Thursday, in particular, was completely topsy-turvy. My little finnicky four-year old friend, Grace, was here, my husband would be eating dinner much later than us due to work commitments and my younges...

As much as I hate to admit it, warm summery days are becoming few and far between, but there's still plenty of grilling days left to take advantage of!  I'm one of those people who uses their grill every chance I get. I just love the smoky wonderfulness of food coo...
