Peas and Bacon

Peas, Bacon and Tomatoes

This past weekend Jamie and I were back in Hamilton, visiting friends and family. A pre-Easter trip so that we don’t have to travel on the long weekend. I especially enjoyed spending time with my nephew, Sam. We made chocolate covered marshmallows, candy pancakes and went to a Maple Syrup Festival. There is a reason I am an aunt 🙂

When Jamie and I got back into town earlier this week, I had a moment of panic when I wasn’t sure what I was going to share in today’s post. I didn’t have anything planned out. Thankfully I had just received the most recent copy of the Food Network’s magazine in the mail. I sat myself down on the couch and started flipping through the recipes. I figured I could find something that would inspire today’s post.

Broccoli-Cauliflower Chowder

Broccoli-Cauliflower Chowder

With St. Patrick’s Day celebrations only a few days away (or starting today and lasting into the wee hours of Sunday night 😉 – I thought I would present you with a green soup to mark the occasion.

A lot of St. Patrick Day festivities involve heavy or fried food served with an abundance of Guinness or green beer. This recipe will offer you a healthy green alternative that you can easily work into your regular recipe rotation.

Spicy Avocado Chicken Salad

Spicy Chicken Avocado Salad

This week while grocery shopping, I saw a new salad dressing; an avocado dressing with lime and jalapeño. As I reached to grab the bottle and put it in my cart I thought, wait, I can likely make this at home. So instead, I went to the produce section and grabbed a fresh avocado and jalapeño pepper.

I wanted to make a salad that would compliment this flavour combination, so I went to my spice cupboard and pulled out a selection of spices. I thought that a spiced chicken breast served on top of mixed greens and topped with an avocado dressing would be delicious.

Breakfast T.A.B.L.E.

I was wandering around the grocery store when a fabulous idea struck me!  A BLT Breakfast sandwich!!  Now I know what you are thinking, “Connie, you did not invent the BLT Breakfast sandwich.”  I know, I know, they are available at every coffee and doughnut shop in every city, but I saw inspiration when I glanced at a beautiful head of Boston leaf lettuce and from that small glance, a new breakfast was born (at least in our home).

Turkey Burger with Grilled Pineapple

I know that fall is here, but I couldn’t resist one more, summer–time recipe to share with you before I go completely into fall mode with comfort food consisting of squash and soup recipes.

We have created burgers on here before, but this time we thought we would change it up a bit and share with you our turkey burger recipe. The great thing about burgers is you can really just throw a bunch of spices in a bowl with some ground meat and you instantly have the makings of a pretty good burger.

Potato and Bacon Salad

One more salad recipe!  Since summer is still with us for a few more weeks before we fall into September, I thought that I should offer up another staple for your salad repertoire.

Potato salad is one of those things that everyone has their favourite recipe that has been handed down from generation to generation.   There are so many variations: Chunky or Creamy; Skins On or Off; Eggs or No Eggs; Pickles or No Pickles.

Broccoli Salad

I am kind of on a salad kick right now.  With summer here it just feels right to be making bright and lively salads.  This one is one of my favourites, and the concept of this salad was given to me by my mom, when I was younger (a lot younger).

I have been making broccoli salad for years.  As I mentioned, my mom first introduced me to this delicious salad, but over time I have made modifications to the original recipe that she shared with me. (No real surprise with this statement!)
