Broccoli Cheddar Casserole

It is beginning to become clear to me that we have been eating too much cheese lately. Still, I regret nothing! Well, a little bit. But it’s hard to regret something as tasty and satisfying as this. It was also quick and easy to make, and pretty much a full meal in itself. We had it with just one of …

Monster Zucchini Lasagne

We’ve been pretty careful about checking the zucchini daily this summer, and so we haven’t suffered from too many monster zucchini. Last week, though, we must have taken our eyes off the prize, because 3 of them rolled into the kitchen. This seems to be the time of year when you are most likely to see very large zucchini at …

Flakkee Carrots

This is another one that I’m a little surprised to realize I have never written about. On the other hand, carrots are one of the world’s most popular vegetables and Flakkee is one of the most common older types of orange carrots out there – in a funny sort of way it is so ubiquitous as to be easily overlooked. …

Zucchini Soup to follow Turkish Stuffed Zucchini

When I made Turkish Style Stuffed Zucchini (and tomatoes), the recipe made no use of the centres taken out of the zucchini and tomatoes. So rather than waste them, I saved them and made this soup. You could also make it with new, unused zucchini and tomatoes if you didn’t want to make the stuffed vegetables. If you had a …

Zucchini & Ricotta Phyllo Roll

Okay, here come the zucchini! They seem to be the one thing the heat doesn’t slow down, as long as they are watered.  There is, of course, a distinct resemblance to Spanakopita here. Since zucchini is less robust in flavour than spinach, I paired it with a mild cheese and kept the herbs fairly discreet. It’s still a lovely summer …

Turkey Sorrel Rolls

These were lovely. Apparently there are stuffed sorrel rolls in Turkish and Balkan cooking, but it’s a slightly different variety that is probably sturdier. The French sorrel leaves which I am growing were a bit delicate. Still, they held together well enough with gentle handling. Turkey went well with the mild flavours of the vegetables. Serve these with rice, or …

Mint & Barley Soup

Apart from cooking the barley – which is a 5 minute chore to set up the evening before, providing you use a rice cooker – this is a quick and easy soup to make. The barley and carrots give it just enough substance, the green onions and mint give it a lively flavour of spring greens. Yogurt and lemon juice …

Fiddlehead & Potato Salad

I think I have missed the wild leek season. I went into our back forest to check on our transplants, and they are doing well but not expanding. Give them another couple of decades, I guess. We don’t have any fiddleheads growing in our woods but I did find some in a local shop. They make a good addition to …

Trevor’s Champ

“boiled potatoesspring onionsbutter, grated cheeselittle milksalt, pepper Mashed together. Carrots may also be added. “                                               from Dad’s cookbook, circa 1983 Champ is so simple it is hardly a recipe, but please indulge me as I indulge myself in some nostalgia. Circa 1983 was a bit later than I would have expected …

Carrot Crepes

It took me a couple of tries to get these right, and while I keep picturing them filled with savoury goodies, like cheese, mushrooms, or spinach, I keep ending up plonking them on a plate and serving them with syrup. I’m pretty sure they would be good in a savoury setting if I can just get organized for it!  If …
