CROCK POT VEGETARIAN CHILI

This was a recipe that was recently printed in our local newspaper.  I made some changes to the original – and we were delighted with the results.  Slow cooking with a crock pot has always been a little bit of a hit and miss result with me in terms of flavor.  Usually I have found [...]

As mentioned in previous posts, I have been cooking Vegetarian meals about twice sometimes three times a week.  Recently, we found this at our local grocery store:

No paid advertisement here….just wanting to share something yummy – a lovely basmati rice/quiona blend vegetarian meal. Next to dried pasta, this is the only thing in my pantry [...]

PORK CHOPS IN A SHALLOT MUSHROOM SAUCE

What is not to love about shallots?  They are in my humble opinion much more flavorful than any onion – hands down.  They are also more of a “killer” on the eyes in terms of their sting!

Regardless, they are my favorite in the Allium family.  So much flavor – and a flavor that retains itself [...]

CREAM OF LEEK AND KALE SOUP

Please excuse the picture quality here…very bad lighting!

It has been freezing in our neck of the woods.  When it gets to 4 degrees below zero, that is cold!  And unreasonably so for our area.  All I can think about is a lovely hot bowl of soup with warm Gluten Free French Bread.  Mind you, I [...]

TUESDAYS ORGANIC VEGGIE DELIVERY AND A VERY VEGETABLE NOURISHING SOUP

I have fallen in love with Tuesdays.  Once our summer Organic Local Farm Market closed for the season in the first week of October, it used to be that that was it for farm fresh organic veggies until next year.  Happily that is not so any longer.  I joined one of our favorite local Weekly [...]

A FLAVORFUL VEGETARIAN SHEPHERDS PIE

Tonight we had a different version of Vegetarian Shepherds pie.  Although this did not photo well, it was darn tasty!  When it comes to a dish like this, I found that using a little more seasonings, the better the taste.

While I did not really measure out a whole lot of the ingredients, I will give [...]

GLUTEN FREE BUTTERNUT SQUASH SKILLET LASAGNA

The inspiration for this recipe came from a Magazine called “TASTE MAGAZINE” that our B.C. Liquor Stores put out quarterly, I believe.

You can see a copy of the magazine here.  While the magazine’s focus is on wine and spirit pairings with food, it also showcases the new releases of wines and spirits.  It is a [...]

HOW TO BAKE (AND FREEZE) A PERFECT WHOLE SALMON

This year, I have endeavored to buy whole fresh salmon – enough to have 7 or 8 in the freezer.  Usually, I will buy pink salmon – I somehow missed my favorite salmon this year which is CoHo.

(in the picture above, we love to serve salmon with organic garlic scape pesto which I make every [...]
