Savory Broccoli, Cheddar & Sausage Scones

One of my favourite things about cooking is taking a look in the fridge and using up what I have on hand to make a meal, snack or baked good. Others may find it challenging, but I get a thrill out of it. Some of the best things that come out of the little green kitchen are creative takes on ...

Rustic Fig & Honey Goat Cheese Tart
"The measure of your life is the amount of beauty and happiness  of which you are aware." ~ Agnes Martin  The earth is quietly opening up around here.  Today I looked at the teeny buds on the lilac bush in the front yard, and on the apple and plum trees beh...
The earth is quietly opening up around here. Today I looked at the teeny buds on the lilac bush in the front yard, and on the apple and plum trees behind the house. Tentative first steps of the beauty that lies ahead. It's been a warmer than usual spring. Typically there should still be snow ...

Le Sandwich: Croque Madame with Dijon Béchamel Sauce
Sometimes a sandwich can make your life.  True story.  And it doesn't have to be a particularly fancy one, piled high with vegetables and herbaceous spreads.  Honestly, just give me good meat and good cheese, tucked between good bread with a little bit of b...
Sometimes a sandwich can make your life. True story. And it doesn't have to be a particularly fancy one, piled high with vegetables and herbaceous spreads. Honestly, just give me good meat and good cheese, tucked between good bread with a little bit of butter and mustard.

Coconut Chia Pudding with Bluberry Ginger Compote
"One could not get enough of the nimble air.  Every morning I wakened  with a fresh consciousness that winter was over."  ~ Willa Cather Well my friends, we made it.  Another winter finished and into the books.  I know, I know, there's still snow on the gro...
Well my friends, we made it. Another winter finished and into the books. I know, I know, there's still snow on the ground and flannel sheets are still on the bed, but for all intents and purposes, spring is here. Hallelujah praise the lord. And I just did a few jumping jacks, ...

Braised Lentils and Chickpeas with Kale & White Wine
I love me a good challenge.  It seems like every so often I take a deep breath and do something tremendously brave that both excites and terrifies me, and no doubt keeps my mother awake at night.  Sorry mom!  I've gone and done it again, and fingers crossed...
I love me a good challenge. It seems like every so often I take a deep breath and do something tremendously brave that both excites and terrifies me, and no doubt keeps my mother awake at night. Sorry mom! I've gone and done it again, and fingers crossed I'll land on my feet like I always seem ...

For the Lovers: Meyer Lemon & Lavender Polenta Cake
"Love is a fire.  But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house,   you never can tell."  ~ Joan Crawford   Oh, that Joan.  But isn't it the truth?  When we fall in love we never know how it's going to turn out.  Perhaps it will only la...
Oh, that Joan. But isn't it the truth? When we fall in love we never know how it's going to turn out. Perhaps it will only last 5 days, or if we're one of the lucky ones, 50 years. All those butterflies and gushy smiles at the beginning often end with painful wails on the bathroom floor.

Rose Pavlova with Raspberry Pomegranate Sauce
"And the Spring arose on the garden fair,  Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;  And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast  Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest."  ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley Springtime in Saskatchewan.  You never know what you're g...
Springtime in Saskatchewan. You never know what you're going to get. Yesterday, as I was photographing this pavlova, the windows were open, furnace was off, sandals were on - showing off my freshly pedicured toes, and the cats were roaming the perimeter of the place, no doubt scouting for any ...

On the Cusp: Grapefruit & Olive Oil Pound Cake
"Just say yes and you'll figure it out afterwards."  ~ Tina Fey Cusp.  I like that word.  It's defined as the point of a crescent, like the moon, and a point that marks the beginning of a change.  Like, Renée is on the cusp of a new era.  Holy shit.  The pa...
Cusp. I like that word. It's defined as the point of a crescent, like the moon, and a point that marks the beginning of a change. Like, Renée is on the cusp of a new era. Holy shit. The past couple of weeks, well, the past month really, have been really terrifying and exciting.

Searching For Saskatoons
If you ask anyone who grew up in rural or small town Saskatchewan about Saskatoon berries, they have a story to tell.  I'm not talking about the conveniently cultivated U-Picks, where you park your car, grab your basket and head towards your allotted row.  ...
