These savoury waffles are a result of me not finding any waffle recipes online that suited my fancy. I’ve made them 3 times with the recipe as it is now, and they are REALLY good and really easy. Loaded with spinach and feta cheese, these waffles are fluffy and melty on the inside and crispy and salty on the outside. These are good enough to eat on their own, no toppings required. They really are a ten out of ten.Read More

My favourite way to eat this chowder is to bring the whole darn pot outside and stick it on the table with a stack of bowls, some rustic bread from a local bakery, and a few hungry friends or family members.Read More

There’s something very awesome about a pie that is so easy to make and rustic, that it’s almost like a dessert pizza. When the berries and stone fruit are just calling out to you to buy them and make something satisfying out of them, a galette is a really good way to go.Read More

I remember trying many corn muffin recipes when I was younger, but I had issues with the batter kind of separating and not coming together. Some recipes instructed me to let the cornmeal sit in the milk for awhile to absorb it, but it never really worked that well. These jalapeno corn muffins come out perfect every time.Read More
