Curry Butter Chicken with Cumin Crusted Naan Bread

I’ve been a huge fan of Indian food for quite some time. We absolutely love our curries. They are so flavourful and dynamic. The addition of certain spices can completely change and entire dish, in a good way. I’m also a sucker for naan bread. That doughy, chewy, soft goodness that you use as a […]

Lately, Katie has been taking a stronger interest in spending some time in the kitchen. Since I am the chef of the house, she has taken on the role of baker. Over the last few months she’s tried her hand at everything from macaroons to muffins to bread to almond crescent cookies. I gotta say, […]

BBQ Chicken & Portobello Mushroom Pizza

It’s the day after Valentine’s day. We’re exhausted. It’s been a crazy few months for us, and finally we have a weekend just to ourselves.

Whole Wheat Six Seed Bread

I love bread. No, not the crap you find the grocery store that is pumped full of preservatives, or “vegetables” as some claim.

Kale Salad with Grilled Red Onion, Cashews & Goat Cheese

Kale. Earthy, leafy, greens. Some people love it, and some people hate it. Personally I enjoy my kale in chip form, or blended into a power juice. Over the past few years kale has become somewhat trendy – in fact it’s hard to go to a restaurant and not come across it on the menu. […]

Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup

Winter is here. There’s no denying it anymore. Get ready for sub zero, windy, frigid days for the next 3 months. Honestly, I don’t really have any issue with winter. I love the snow and especially winter sports. One of the best parts about winter is the comfort food. After a long day skating on […]

Crab Cakes with Lemon Garlic Aioli

-22.7° celsius. That’s how cold it got this past weekend. I know, we live in Canada. But it’s still November, and that bone chilling cold isn’t supposed to show its ugly face until at least the new year, right? So what do you do when it’s that cold. Bundle up? Stay inside? I typically cook. […]

Fall is here. The air is crisp, the NHL season is in full swing, and Thanksgiving has just come and gone. This year we headed up to the cottage to get a break from our hectic schedule that has us managing work and about a dozen weddings. Katie’s cottage is currently being renovated (including a brand new […]
