This is not a recipe. It is a directive: Every now and then you should have cheese and crackers for dinner. I don’t mean cheese and crackers literally. I mean it to be symbolic of your most uncommon indulgence around food. Vegan | Carnivore | Gluten Free
When I was a kid, my mom used to tell me how when she was a kid she ate bacon fat sandwiches. Back then, smothering white lard over perfectly good bread seemed like a horrifying prospect. Now I realize she was on to something! In honour of my mom, these biscuits are unapologetically bacon-y, with bacon fat replacing the traditional shortening, and cooked crumbled bacon added for good measure. The caramelized shallots add a hint of sweetness, or you could go all savoury and swap those out with roasted garlic. Or you could add both!
Steak for Her with Merlot, Rosemary, & Dark Chocolate Sauce and Purple Pearl Onions in Maple Chili Glaze
Today, we’re snubbing salad and saying “hello” to steak. Actually, steak and sauce. But not just any old sauce. This ain’t no ho hum peppercorn, no timeworn mushroom, no routine red wine sauce. This is Steak for Her and our lady has an adventurous palate and a love of flowers, wine, and chocolate. She’ll find each making an appearance, respectively as rosemary, merlot, and a hint of dark chocolate. Reduced beef stock and brown butter round out the ingredient list. So good, she might just want to keep it all to herself, but maybe she’ll share. Despite the name – boys are allowed. Just don’t ask for a side of potatoes!
I almost called this Turkey Sabbath but that would probably have misled everyone into thinking that this was a post about turkey Sunday dinner. This is more like Sabbath from Turkey as in “rest from” it. After Canadian Thanksgiving, and six consecutive days of turkey/stuffing/potatoes, […]
Everybody’s grilling romaine lately, and it’s delicious all on its own as a side, but this recipe takes it a step further. The grilled romaine is chopped and combined with roasted garlic and parmesan cheese. This mixture – along with a lusciously runny poached egg […]
A deliciously rich and creamy riff off a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich. This recipe uses tomato paste for the base, along with a unctuous trifecta of bacon, butter, and goat milk. Sautéed basil stems add a mild peppery note and some gentle crunch. The whole […]
