Sausage Gravy and Buttermilk Biscuits FI

I remember when I was a kid and we would take a family trip down into the United States, I always enjoyed going to the various restaurants that were not in Canada. I loved to try different items on the menus that I rarely had before and I often became a fan of certain dishes that, while common in parts …

Honey Sriracha Smoked Pork Side Ribs

Honey Sriracha Ribs FI

Oh ribs…. you are my weakness. If I could only have one meal for the rest of my life, it would have to be ribs. Meaty and full of flavour, ribs are also an ideal meat to coat with lots of seasoning and sauce. Whether you like your ribs dry or saucy, they can pack quite the flavour in every …

I love Mexican food and there are a few different authentic Mexican restaurants that I enjoy going to. One of my favourite items on the menus are flautas and I often order them whenever we go out to these restaurants. Flautas are rolled tacos that are fried in oil till they are crispy.

Kielbasa Minestrone

Kielbasa Minestrone FI

Soup is the perfect meal on those cold wet days and that is exactly what we have been experiencing for what seems like weeks. I always find that cold rain can chill you right to the core and soup is a great way to warm up those bones. One of my favourite soups is minestrone. Very delicious and full of hearty …

Bacon Cheddar Broccoli Bake

Bacon Cheddar Broccoli Bake FI

I am always on the lookout for a new side dish. I had a bunch of broccoli in the fridge and wanted to do something more than steaming it. Being a big fan of anything baked with cheese and bacon, I figured turning the broccoli into a gooey cheesy bake with lots of crumbled bacon was a no brainer. Wow …

Chocolate Chip Scones FI

There are some mornings when I want something more fancy than our standard breakfast. In our home, we are cereal and toast people for breakfast. Once in a while, we mix it up with English muffins or oatmeal, but on the whole, breakfast is pretty simple. I think it is because we view breakfast as a time to quickly have …

Smoked Rosemary Rubbed Pork Lunchmeat

Smoked Rosemary Rubbed Pork Lunchmeat-3

With three kids in the house, we go through lots of lunchmeat each week for school lunches. I am always surprised at the price of lunchmeat as it seems ridiculously high for meat that sometimes doesn’t even have the texture of real meat. A little while ago, I got a meat slicer and decided that it is time to start …

Fajita Seasoning Spice Mix

Fajita Seasoning Spice Mix-2

In our family rotation of meals, Mexican cuisine is probably of the highest priority. Quite often we have meals like tacos, enchiladas, fajitas and basically anything that has a Mexican flare. I remember during my teen years and even into university how I would love going to Taco Bell. I will be the first to admit that it is a …

Cajun Chicken Wings with Creole Buttermilk Ranch Dip

Cajun Chicken Wings with Creole Buttermilk Ranch Dip

Most of the time when I make wings, I toss them in a sauce. There are plenty of recipes on this site for different types of chicken wing sauces, including buffalo, honey garlic, sriracha and more. I love both sweet and spicy sauces but sometimes prefer wings that are served dry. Chicken wings done this way stay crispy and are …

BBQ Brisket and Provolone Nachos

BBQ Brisket and Provolone Nachos-4

Anytime I use my smoker, I load it up with meat. Inevitably, there are always leftovers. Some I package up and throw in the freezer, while others we eat throughout the week. I had some brisket in the fridge from my last smoking session (for the Super Bowl), and decided to make some nachos with it. Nachos are always a massive …
