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...

One of the major food trends in Canada and the United States right now is high brow versions of classic comfort food. Dishes like Beef Stroganoff, Macaroni and Cheese with truffle oil and Meatloaf are popping up on restaurant menus all over North America. We all have...

I had a fitful night's sleep Monday night. For whatever reason, visions of apple stuffed pork tenderloin kept dancing in my head and I was mesmerized trying to figure out how exactly I was going to make an apple stuffing that would stay in place inside of a pork tender...
