Rhubarb Risotto

We have a ton of garden fresh rhubarb that my wife’s grandpa gave us, so there will be a lot of savory rhubarb recipes coming. This recipe one was a true experiment. By that, I mean that I said to my wife before her first bite, “This could be good or absolutely terrible. There is…

Caramelized Onion and Gruyere Pizza with Honey Balsamic Sauce

Pizza night again! This time, we went with a combination of tangy and sweet flavours. The sweetness comes from the caramelized onion and the honey, while the tang comes from the balsamic vinager. For the meat, we opted to use some leftover goose leg…but bacon would pair exquisitely with the other ingredients, so if you…

Sausage and Cheese Egg Bake with Veggies

Time: 25 Minutes Ingredients: Jalapenos (3 per person is a good serving suggestion) Cottage Cheese…

Swiss Zucchini Gratin

Sometimes, I want a nice hearty gratin, but I don’t want to eat all that potato. This one is a perfect substitute, and it goes very well with steak any breaded and pan fried meats. In this case, I cooked it to accompany a chicken schnitzel dish. It’s easy, and it’s also very customizable to…
