This is likely my favourite recipe out of the New Dieters Cookbook. My sister was actually the first person who made it. I remember it was so good I asked for seconds (and likely thirds). Then the next time I was over for a visit, I asked her to make it again. Yep, it is that good!

I am going to have to admit to you, that I have never made cabbage rolls before. I have enjoyed them on more than one occasion, but I have never attempted to make them myself, till now.
When we were growing up, our Mom would make cabbage rolls a couple of times a year. It was a time consuming task, but we always enjoyed the effort, as there is nothing better than homemade cabbage rolls. Over the years, I have had the frozen variety, but they just don’t compare to homemade.
This past week has been cold here in Ottawa. Real cold. That biting kind of cold that gets through your coat and multiple layers of clothing right into your bones. When it is that cold outside, all you want to eat is comfort food. Now for me, comfort food usually consists of lots of carbs; pasta and bread immediately come to mind, but in trying to eat healthier, I have decided to forgo the big bowl of spaghetti and make a stew instead.
In planning for our upcoming move, Jamie and I have taken stock of all of our kitchen appliances and have donated those items that have one use and take up a lot of room in our cupboards. Some examples of items that we no longer own are our electric frying pan, toaster, electric Panini press, indoor grill and flat-topped griddle.
Now that autumn is officially here, it is time to embrace the season and start cooking more comfort foods. I don’t that there is anything more comforting than a great dinner of Spaghetti and Meatballs!
With Jamie and I trying to eat healthy (actually we are just trying to balance out all the carbohydrates that we consume through cookies 😉 ), we don’t eat a lot of pasta. However, this year I have been introduced to the wonderful world of spaghetti squash!
If you have been following along on my blogging journey, you have likely picked up on the fact that one of our favourite restaurants is The Keg. We really enjoy their steaks, they are always perfect, and not having a BBQ is a great excuse to go out for a delicious steak dinner.
One weekend, we decided to try to do steaks in the apartment. Now, we could have used our grill pan, but we wanted to try something different. So, to the internet I went, looking for steak dinner ideas. When I saw Beef Wellington turn up in my search results, I saw this as a real possibility.
The role of today’s guest food blogger is played by Connie’s husband, Jamie.
Shortly after Connie launched A Ruby Reduction, I briefly entertained the thought of creating a companion blog focused entirely on the hamburger.
It seemed like a splendid idea at first … until I began to realize that in order to maintain such a site, I’d have to eat an (almost) ungodly number of burgers (and buns) on a regular basis.
Hey, I love hamburgers, but a man’s got his limits.
The role of today’s guest food blogger will once again be played by Connie’s husband, Jamie.
Super Bowl Sunday™ is this weekend and for many (read: Connie), what is on the menu shares equal, if not greater importance, with what is on the television.
If you’re not a fan of football, chances are all this talk about pigskin leading up to the big game has conjured up images of bacon frying away in the pan. OK, perhaps that only happens in our house…
This year, though, it was supposed to be no contest; food was going to play second fiddle.
My New Year’s Resolution this year was one new recipe a week. I have a lot of cookbooks, and I often look through them as if they were novels, but I have a hard time following recipes. I always add a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Not that it is a bad thing, but I thought maybe I should try to follow some recipes as they are written this year 🙂
