I have several fabulous girl friends who are willing to come over to my house and cook me dinner. It is one of the greatest things about the relationship, that you don’t feel bad asking for help and you know they will make themselves at home. Even better is when the dinner made is so […]

The request last night from J was for something healthy. Out the door went my fantasies of comforting risottos and carbonaras and in flew this. I whipped this up inspired by a version from Bobby Flay and served it with a piece of seared salmon on top. It was really nice and I used actual […]

If you have never cooked flank steak before you are missing out. It is full of flavour, adaptable to tons of cuisines and is super easy on the pocket book. Excellent for my attempts at Cheap Eats! The downside of it is that it is quite a tough piece of meat that you have to […]

The title of this post leaves little to the imagination. The idea behind this is to literally wrap up a bunch of potatoes in some aluminum foil and stick them on the bbq so they cook, no fuss no muss, with other things. You could probably do this quite well in a grill tray but […]

This simple and inexpensive cabbage pasta recipe is delicate and nutty. Cabbage turns so buttery when you cook it down to almost nothing, and if you do it right it retains that beautiful vibrant green colour.
