The holidays are here. It’s official. As I write this, gazing through my office window at the Maritime snow storm blanketing my city, I am very aware that winter is here. Ol’ Saint Nick is just around the corner. For the home cook, chef, and avid eater, the holidays are an especially wonderful time. The […]

Lobster Gnocchi in Garlic Cream Sauce

Lobster Gnocchi in Garlic Cream Sauce

Lobster & Christmas, I love you both. For some strange (and delicious) reason, lobster and Christmas just seem to be best friends for a lot of folks. Being a Maritimer, I have the good fortune of having access to the most succulent of crustaceans year round, at a fraction of the cost, and from basically […]

Roast Chicken Fusilli with Garlic Cream Sauce

Monday, what’s up. Be kind to us, please. Friends! How’s your week been? Good? Good. September in our part of the world is in full swing.

Tagliatelle with Rainbow Trout, Roasted Tomatoes, and Buffalo Mozzarella

Last weekend I spent two days in one of my favourite places on earth. Fundy National Park in New Brunswick, Canada is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Yes, I’m biased. Yes, I’m probably right. I’ve spent years going to the park to camp, hike, visit waterfalls, watch beavers swim in the pond…one […]

Last week was wonderful. The sun was shining as bright as July. There were t-shirts and flip-flops as far as the eye could see. And patio hang outs were the dinner local of choice. This week…not. so. much. RAAAAAAIIIIIIIINNNNNNNN. It’s freezing in Atlantic Canada, and has been raining for what feels like a year (or […]

Fresh Brown Butter Sage Pasta with Peas & Asparagus

Fresh Brown Butter Sage Pasta with Peas & Asparagus

Everyone has a comfort food go-to. Pizza, wings, curry, etc and forever. For this Canadian, comfort food is, and most likely forever will be, pasta. Or noodles.  I could and would eat noodles in some delicious form every day, if I wasn’t scared I’d end up in a carb-induced coma. This pasta is something I […]

Baked Ravioli. Comfort food, embodied.

It’s National Ravioli Day. More days like this, please. Also, pizza/burger/pie/ice cream day. Bless you, too. Never leave me. I cook all the time, usually 6 or 8 dishes a day when I’m recipe testing. Some of these days I want beautifully plated, gorgeous, locally sourced dishes…and sometimes you just want comfort food x a […]
