Roasted Beets with Shallot and Orange Dressing

I have never really thought of eating beets.  I normally pass by them in the grocery store.  However, one night when I was out for dinner at The Keg, my side seasonal vegetable was roasted beets.

Ham-Burr-ger Helper

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.

Chili Chicken & Peppers

Well, I am back with another super easy chicken recipe 🙂

Chicken is our go-to dish for any night of the week.  We grill it (on an indoor grill), bake it, pan fry it, stuff it, or even throw it in the slow cooker.  But, as I am sure you can appreciate, when you eat chicken almost daily, you really need to experiment with flavours or else you will get bored.

“Slide” Right – Super Sliders for Super Sunday

Sliders_up_close

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.

Chicken and Kidney Bean Soup

I mentioned before that soup is great because it can be made with basically anything from your pantry.  Well, this soup was supposed to be Minestrone but as I started gathering up all the ingredients, I realized that I was missing some key ingredients.  I had no spinach, no pasta and no navy beans.  So, as I rummaged around in the cupboard and freezer I grabbed some items and thought to myself, that I would make a mystery soup!

Butternut Squash Soup

I was browsing around on Strawberry Ginger’s blog and stumbled across her recipe for Root Vegetable & Apple Soup.  My first reaction was Yummy!  Then I got thinking about making my own version of a Butternut Squash Soup.

Spicy Baked Chicken

You are likely expecting another recipe that starts with white flour, milk and some kind of fat (butter/shortening).  Well, we can’t eat like that all the time, no matter how much we would love to, so I thought I would share with you one of my week-night favourites.
