This Pantry is Clean

Broken Record Alert: In this chapter, 7 of Spades, ol' Theresa wants us to clean out our pantry. Well, we've done this. Over and over. Our pantry is a thing of beauty. OK, we're not angels, but it's pretty darn close. The broken record part is that, it's not the knowledge ...

Sticky Brown Rice Pudding

Tuesday 8 March 2011 . (0)

Any rice that is cooked in water can be turned into a slurpy sweet dessert! Short Grain Brown Rice works beautifully as it is already creamy and ready to be loved with a little sauce.  This is a great way to introduce kids to brown rice if they are fussy.  Once they realize that it.

Everyone has their own version of pulled pork sandwiches, this one had the added benefit of being loaded with hidden vegetables that look like sauce: canned pumpkin in Mayan Slow Cooker Pork along with mild, jarred Salsa Verde.

Tuesday 8 March 2011 . (1)

Not sure if you remember, but a few weeks ago I accused Theresa Albert of trying to kill me. I think I may have been a little hasty in my proclamation. You see, this week Theresa and I are on the same page. So maybe, just maybe I over reacted during the Queen of Spades. Continue Reading…

The life of a Cereal Killer

Tuesday 8 March 2011 . (1)

In my childhood, cereal held a special place.   Weekdays meant Cheerios or Corn Flakes and the ritual of sitting at the table scooping the crunchy stuff into my mouth while reading the box, both the English and the French.  (This is why Canadians who can’t speak French know what “gratuit” and “croustilliant” mean).  .

Sneaky Slow Cooker Week

Tuesday 8 March 2011 . (0)

Spring Rain makes me want to hunker down over hot and hearty food even more than winter snow.  Luckily, the slow cooker can solve that both that craving and my time crunch.  A slow cooker and a rice cooker are the two kitchen appliances that everyone needs to conquer our climate and this week’s meal.
