This Chicken tastes like KFC mom!

Posted on September 9, 2011 by in Chicken

I can’t say that I have ever tried to make KFC Chicken or even tried to figure out which eleven herbs and spices the Colonel uses in his recipes, but I felt pretty darn good when my children thought my chicken tasted just as good as KFC….and that was without even trying. Imagine if I […]

Fried Tomato salad

Fried Tomato salad is definitively meeting healthy eating halfway. Fried Tomato salad has all the elements of a good salad. The crunch, creamy, bitter, tart and then it meets up the forbidden world of fried food. Yes, forbidden for many as we started the new year with resolutions to eat healthier.

dunkin' chicken burger

Dunkin’ Chicken burgers……. what the heck next? The idea of dunkin’ chicken burgers came to me during a four hour trip back from Prince Albert where I presented a cooking class in August this year. Our last class for the weekend was a Sunday Brunch class, but you know how it is when you’re doing […]

Crumbed Pork Cutlets with hazelnuts and sage

Posted on August 14, 2013 by in pork, rsg


Crumbed to me has always meant “something rolled in crumbs and then baked”. On further investigation I learned that “crumbed” can also mean ” drunk as a skunk” and  ” really messed up” as in a car! Fortunately, I do not have to concern myself with the last two meanings and I can focus on […]

Stuffed pork chop

Pork chops in any way are good, right! My family loves pork and we eat it often, so whenever I see or hear something new I can do with pork chops, I am all eyes and ears. I think I have mentioned it before, but my favorite cut of pork is the pork neck chops. […]

The Colonel’s French Fried Cauliflower

Posted on July 11, 2012 by in vegetarian

“French fried cauliflower that looks like KFC, come on, get real!” My  family’s reaction as we paged through Colonel Harland Sanders’ book to look at all the recipes.

Colonel Harland Sanders’ 11 secret herbs and spices have  kept cooks guessing for ages. Every now and then someone claims to have the exact recipe or at least their version of his delicious fried chicken. Heck, even I have tried guessing at least a couple of those 11 herbs and I got a “Mom, this […]

Lemon and Thyme Roast Chicken on RSG

Posted on May 23, 2012 by in rsg

Lemon and thyme were by far the dominate flavors when I asked readers what their secrets are to the perfect roast chicken. Lemon juice in various forms……drizzled, stuffed up the bum of the poor chicken or simple added to the stock. With thyme there was a slight dispute, some prefer the herb and others swear […]

Ice Cream makes it all better

Posted on November 20, 2011 by in desserts


Ice cream makes it all better or shall I say this is what Hollywood wants me to believe, because in every love story at some stage the girl with the broken heart, would do a midnight trip to the freezer and take out a tub of ice-cream. I can’t say that I have ever done […]

Blackforest Ham and Watercress

Wrap it – Blackforest Ham. If I say the word “wraps”, I bet your mind will immediately go to “Mexican food”, “spicy food” or even KFC. We had quite a few cold and rainy days in the last week or so and when the weather is miserable, the food of choice in this house will […]
