Pasta with Bacon, Broccoli, Leeks, & Cream

I’m on a kick with leeks and broccoli! I’ve done plenty of versions of pasta in a cream sauce with some cheese, too. This all comes together very nicely, and in pretty much the usual time to get pasta on the table, which is to say not very long at all. Three leeks seems like a lot, but it’s amazing …

Spicy Salami Spread (Nduja) – Almost Instant Soft Serve Salami

I’m not saying this spicy salami spread is as good as traditional nduja, but I am saying this takes about 3 months less time to make, and still delivers most of the characteristics that make this Calabrian delicacy so amazing. And just in case you’re not familiar with nduja, a few of those characteristics are a rich, spicy, super-savory flavor, …

Smoked Pork Chops with Mustard Cream Sauce

You need to have access to a good German-style butcher to get smoked pork chops. Fortunately, here in southwestern Ontario that is not too difficult.

This looked so good, that many people might think it was faked, which really is the ultimate compliment. While this would work in any pumpkin, try to find …

Beans & Sausage with Peppers & Onions

This is not chili! No, really; it isn’t. Yes, it is full of beans and meat and peppers but it is still not chili.  However, like chili, it is excellent piled on buttered toast. You can use whatever kind of sausage you like for this, although I suggest something with garlic and without sweetness, so not honey-garlic, for instance. But …

Lo-Bak Pancakes

I love dim sum! It’s such a pity the nearest purveyor is mighty close to 2 hours away by car. Whenever we go, we order 2 dishes of lo-bak go; that is to say radish patties. One of them is just for me, and the other is for the rest of the table. Yes! It’s my favourite! It’s also kind …
