A while back….(end of July/August?) I made my Homemade Apricot and Peach Jam – only this time, I made extra:
It is by far my most favorite jam. Regular Apricot Jam would work nicely here too. We found some beautiful Gray Cod Fillets at the market and with this Apricot/Peach glaze – it was a marriage [...]
Yes, another Pasta dish. This was absolutely to die for…seriously! If you read my blog dear readers, you do know I tend to RAVE about SCD CREAM. Whether in sweet dishes or savory, SCD CREAM is the best whipping cream ever. It lends a slightly tart taste that adds a whole new dimension to sweet [...]
This is a post on how to poach Wild Salmon and Lobster. It is also a post about Seafood Chowder. I have never made a Seafood Chowder before. Back in the day, and I am talking way back in the day, I used to make a luscious Creamy Clam Chowder. Believe me, you do not [...]
Mercy…I am ruined…I will never want fresh store bought wild salmon ever again. I must give a huge shout out, a huge THANK YOU to our neighbours. They brought over this lovely salmon that was caught, fresh out of the ocean yesterday…
We had one fillet for dinner which was perfect for the two of us, [...]
Here is yet another fresh salad. During the spring and summer – we have salads of every kind almost every day. The Sugar Snap Peas will not be around much longer so we have been eating them in every salad we make.

This may well be my most FAVORITE white fish recipe ever…so so good. So delicious, I would love to make it at least once a week. However, after reading this information, we discovered Cod is on the endangered species list.
I received an education this week about our Canadian Coastal Cod. Naturally it is wild, I [...]
This pot of fresh Atlantic Lobster looks divine, does it not? Sigh….wish this was sitting on top of my stove getting ready to be a meal. Sadly, it is not.
My dear Dtr. and her boyfriend are back East in Halifax Nova Scotia visiting his family. And yes, they are about to sit down and eat [...]
If you follow my blog, you know from time to time I become a “Curry Freak”. It’s true. Usually, it happens right out of the blue, with no warning, then next thing you know? My kitchen is a disaster zone, but we do indeed sit down to a lovely, heavenly Curry Meal.
I asked my DH…”was [...]
Have you ever wondered what is in a person’s name? Sometimes I think nothing…we are much more than our “names”. At other times, in this world, how do we Not identify with our names?
Growing up, I was constantly called “Ina” as in Ina Garten, of the Bare Foot Contessa. I hated it more than I [...]
Checking with The Flavor Bible – another recipe emerged. This book is such an inspiration. I knew I wanted to use yogurt, and bacon, but combining the Tarragon, Dijon, lemon, green onions, made this dish light and flavorful.
2 1/2 cups yogurt
4 slices, chopped bacon
1 large minced shallot
4 minced garlic cloves
1 Tblsp. Dijon mustard
1 large bay [...]
