Squash & Tomato Gratin

You can tell that spring is in the air, as lot of my recent posts seem to be about vegetables.  Spring means that the Farmer’s Market will soon be open – Yeah!

When I think of eating a mix of vegetables at dinner, my mind immediately goes to a stir fry. One afternoon I decided to look for a different way to bring a variety of vegetables to the dinner table, in a non-stir fry format.  I pulled out some of my cookbooks and started looking at side dish recipes.  Nothing was jumping off the page and grabbing my attention.

Cauliflower Broccoli Bacon Cheese Balls

I have mentioned on previous occasions that we eat a lot of vegetables.  Quite often we take raw veggies in our lunch, but by the weekend, the thought of eating another piece of cauliflower or broccoli is not that appealing. (*Note – The exception to this statement is the awesomeness of Cauliflower Pizza) 🙂

Since we are overly familiar with the cauliflower pizza, I wanted to figure out another way to incorporate vegetables into our weekend fare.  As I was sitting on the couch, scouring through cookbooks and cooking magazines, it came to me!  It was like an epiphany struck me through the open blinds of the living room window. Cauliflower Broccoli Balls!  This was going to be amazing.

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.

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.
