Caramelized Onion and Tomato Couscous

Aah couscous. What’s not to love? Whenever I describe it, I refer to it as “tiny pasta that cooks exceedingly quickly.” And essentially, that’s what it is…durum wheat semolina is exactly what you’ll find as an ingredient on any good box of pasta. However, with couscous, you don’t have to wait for the water to…

Moroccan Salmon

It took me quite a while to figure out how exactly I wanted to cook my salmon tonight, but in the end, I decided to try a spice blend I hadn’t ever tried before and make a Moroccan inspired salmon fillet. I’m quite happy to report that the spice of the cayenne and the earthiness…

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I’d say that pretty much every time I have the option to swap out French fries for Sweet Potato Fries at a restaurant, I take it. Sweet Potatoes just have such great depth of flavour and quite a few more nutrients than you find in Russets. However, those are still generally deep fried, which I…

Apple Pork Burgers

Few meats and fruits pair as well as pork and apples. There are a handful of different ways to meld the two ingredients…pork loin with braised apples, pork chops and apple sauce, etc…but today, we wanted to create something that we saw on a menu in Wales. Sadly, I can only say that we “saw…

Beet Noodles with Creamy Goat Milk Sauce

Here’s another beet based dish! If you’ve read my Beet and Quinoa Burgers or Mint and Goat Cheese Stuffed Beets, you know that beets are one of (to put it mildly) my wife’s favourite foods. As such, we like to accentuate them often, and we’re always trying new ways to incorporate them into our meals….

Ham and Green Bean Casserole Pie

This afternoon, while I sat on the couch watching a little TV, and I was thinking about my grandma. Growing up, I’d always head to Upstate New York in the summers for a week with my Uncle (who also agrees that Anchor Bar is better than Duffs), Aunt, and cousins followed by a week in…

Extreme Buffalo Chicken Breast

As a lifelong Buffalo Bills fan, there are few foods that are as near and dear to my taste buds as Buffalo Chicken. Not that you asked, but I prefer Anchor Bar over Duff’s, and I’m proud to admit that. Anyway, I quite enjoy the tangy spicy goodness of Buffalo Sauce mixed with the salty…

Garlic Cauliflower Pizza Crust

This crust is a little finickier than my Classic Homemade Crust Recipe, and it requires more of a “go by feel” style since the cauliflower component skews the liquid to flour ratio a bit, but (I think) it’s well worth the effort! This recipe will give you a slightly lighter and more nutritious crust with…

Riced Cauliflower Shrimp Biryani

My wife and I just got back from our trip to the UK, where we enjoyed the food immensely. However, after eating our fair share of fish and chips, meat pies (steak, chicken, and mutton depending on the night), pasties, and even takeaway Indian, we were in the mood for something much lighter tonight. So,…

Sausage and Cheese Egg Bake with Veggies

After last night, we had some leftover Cumberland sausage, Cheshire cheese, kale, and mushrooms, so those were destined to become features of tonight’s dinner again. But, it wasn’t quite enough to make a full meal, so after my wife and I finished hiking from Llyn Ogwen up through Devil’s Kitchen and then to Glyder Fawr…

Cheshire Potato and Veggie Casserole

My wife and I are currently visiting Wales, and we’ve got an Air BNB with a nice kitchen (and cast iron cookware)! So, after a few meals out (Fish n’ Chips and Steak Pie), we went to the Coop and did some food shopping! After climbing Tryfan yesterday and then following it up with a…

Salsa Verde Braised Pork and Onions

Today was a hectic day with a lot of running around and chores to do…so it was definitely time to dust off (literally dust off, sadly) the old slow cooker and play a little game of “set it and forget it.” This meal is quite simple, and it really only requires 3 ingredients (although, we…
