Perogy Rolls

I’m kind of obsessed with perogies. Pierogi, if you’re feeling particularly Ukrainian today.   If I had no conscience, I could eat them almost every day. Being that they’re made of cheesy, bacony mashed potatoes stuffed inside soft dough and covered in other equally delicious things, I try to restrain myself a little. Just a […]

Potato Salad Bites

I’m a little bit weird when it comes to food preferences.   You already know I have to trick myself into eating vegetables. I also don’t eat cold cheese, only melted. To me, there’s just a really big difference. I have this thing against mayo, dressings, sour cream, and things of that sort. It’s not […]

Maple Bacon Mac & Cheese

I feel like I’m not a very good food blogger. All over Pinterest I see nice springy recipes, things with lemon and fresh berries and fresh vegetables. Things that are in season in other parts of North America. But certainly not in Manitoba. I mean, we take what we can get. Here in Manitoba, we’re […]

BBQ Beef and Cheddar Poutine

Sometimes I just need a little man food. Maybe we all need a bit of man food sometimes. This is one of those things you make that causes your man (or maybe your woman!) to give you those eyes across the table as he takes his first bite. I know my husband did. Those “I’m-in-meat-cheese-and-potato-heaven” […]

Baked Cheese Risotto

So my BFF (am I still young enough to say that?) gave me this wonderful, beautiful cookbook, A Cook’s Guide from Donna Hay, and I dutifully sticky-noted all of the recipes I wanted to make from it. I’m embarrassed to say this is the first recipe I’ve made from it…(Sorry, Katherine — I promise it […]

Bacon Jam Grilled Cheese

Words cannot express the mind-blowing flavour of this sandwich. But for you, I’ll give it my best shot. I discovered that bacon jam was a real thing on Pinterest quite some time ago. I tucked it safely away on my Condiments board for a day when I would actually have time to spend making something […]
