Small Fish Rule

Ace Blogger, Dave is quite right, if we want to keep eating fish (and we do!) we should choose further down the food chain.  Finding smaller fish not only means that they haven't accumulated so much mercury but also that they are faster to replenish the ocean's stocks. This recipe ...

Five Spice Chicken Legs

Monday 27 June 2011 . (0)

I love this chicken recipe because it comes together in a snap, serves a crowd easily and can be cooked in the oven or BBQ in one pan.  Plus, when its cooked, any leftovers turn into a Vietnamese Pho Soup to die for! The secret ingredient is a package of grated cabbage (sometimes called cole. Continue Reading…

Easy, Dreamy BBQ Fish

Monday 16 May 2011 . (0)

I swear, I get lazier and lazier but I won’t compromise on quality or taste.  What’s a girl to do? Fish on the BBQ!  This recipe comes together in 2 minutes (no exaggeration!) and cooks in 10 without even needing to be watched or flipped.  Just enough time to make a salad and warm a.

Bean and Fennel Cassoulet

Sunday 8 May 2011 . (0)

I am always looking for ways to add beans to our repertoire. This dish is great when you have one vegetarian at the dinner table, it is a main dish for them and and a side dish for the others. Great served with  fish or chicken like this Poached Tarragon Salmon, something about the pink. Continue Reading…

Roasted Asparagus

Sunday 8 May 2011 . (0)

I adore asparagus! I was in France when white asparagus was in season and we peeled it and ate it raw like a carrot stick, yum! What I don’t love is fussy recipes that take more time to prepare than they do to enjoy.  Asparagus could fall into that category if you let it (like. Continue Reading…

Poached Salmon with Tarragon jus

Sunday 8 May 2011 . (1)

This is the fastest most fool proof method I know to cook fish. Poaching keeps it moist, infuses flavor and is a simple, no fuss weeknight meal.  On a rainy day, I serve this with Fennel and Bean Cassoulet but in the summer, a simple side dish of  Roasted Asparagus and a good loaf of.

Curried Ketchup Sweet Potato Fries

Sunday 24 April 2011 . (0)

In my Healthy Habits column I put ketchup somewhere in the middle of the pack of condiments. It gets such a lukewarm score since it is so high in sugar and therefore calories.  It does, however have the anti-oxidant power of tomatoes and with a little boost, can be pumped up higher on the list..

Mustard Made Fish

Monday 18 April 2011 . (1)

Choosing a fish that is delicious, sustainable and low in mercury just got easier with the launch of the Ocean Wise iphone app. Sustainably farmed fish is a viable option once you know all the facts.  US Farm Raised Catfish really needs a name change b/c it conjures up something nasty but is really delicious.

Minted Cucumber Salad

Friday 15 April 2011 . (0)

I adore multi-purpose recipes that just keep on giving without compromise.  This recipe is excellent as a dip, just chop the cucumbers small.  It is perfect as a salad because it is fresh, light and creamy on the first go around and the next day it replaces mayo in my tuna salad. Just can’t get. Continue Reading…
