Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Quinao Black Bean Burger

Spring is in the air!  Many parts of Canada are still buried under a lot of snow, but it is April and Easter is behind us, so I can’t help thinking of days spent outside and the deliciousness of BBQ’d burgers.

As you know, Jamie and I live in an apartment so we don’t have the luxury of firing up a BBQ whenever the mood strikes us, but that has never stopped us from using our indoor cast iron grill to cook up a burger or two.  The only downside of this is the amount of smoke that is created by using the indoor grill.

This weekend I wanted to try a vegetarian burger, so see if we could get the same burger satisfaction using black beans and quinoa.  My sister, Cherie, shared this recipe with me.  She swears by it, so I thought that we could give it a try.

Curried Carrot Dip

I had a bag of carrots in the fridge that I was supposed to use to make a soup, but I hadn’t gotten around to it yet. I am normally not a big fan of carrots, unless I am using them to dip into homemade hummus. Hmmmm, dipping carrots into hummus, I wonder if I can make carrots into a dip? Of course I can! Anything is possible, especially when you have a large collection of cooking magazines to browse through 🙂

Black Bean & Caramelized Onion Curry Dip

*Just looking at the title lets you know that this is going to be pretty flavourful! 🙂

I love to dip. There, I said it. There is something just so fun and carefree about standing around and dipping your vegetables, crackers or pita bread into a communal dip (No double dipping allowed!). Get togethers just wouldn’t be complete without an assortment of dips to share and enjoy.

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

I was standing at a supermarket check-out when a Canadian Living magazine featuring Slow Cooker recipes caught my eye.  As I picked up the magazine and started flipping through it, a Butter Chicken Recipe peaked my interest.  Then the dilemma set in; do I need to purchase another cooking magazine, or do I try to find a similar recipe on-line?  My pocketbook won the internal debate, and when I arrived home, I started searching for a Slow Cooker Butter Chicken recipe on the internet.

Madras Beef Curry

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 🙂
