A Twist on Tortilla Soup

One of the classic dishes you’ll often find in Mexico is tortilla soup. There are a multitude of versions of this dish. We’ve had it made only with broth and served with toppings like avocados and tortilla strips. We’ve had a version with chicken in it, and a version with beef. I decided to try... Continue Reading →

A Day On The Lake

Those who love to fish, love it a lot. Some love it so much, they build a business around it. That's true of our neighbours, Tom and Dorothy, who have built the guiding business Sask Landing Fishing Adventures.

“Impossible” Cheeseburger Pie

A friend's daughter recently graduated from high school, and the friend asked for recipes for her "college survival kit."

Almost every restaurant offers some selection of fish caught that day (catch-of-the-day), and other locally caught delights like shrimp, calamari, lobster, octopus, scallops…the list goes on. We have enjoyed dining out and sampling these different delicacies,... Continue Reading →

Homemade baked beans with ham

Summertime means campfires, and campfires mean hot dogs and beans. This summer I decided that homemade beans would be a treat over the old standard canned beans. While these can be made without ham, I wanted to experiment using a ham bone, since we enjoyed a bone-in shank of ham and had the bone left... Continue Reading →

Breakfast at supper

We've all had those days when we're at a loss at suppertime - don't know what to make, don't have anything thawed from the freezer, or don't have time to make a traditional supper meal. Eggs are a perfect solution for any meal. This creation was quick to throw together. For this made-up meal, we decided... Continue Reading →

Mexico’s food

We were lucky enough to spend the winter in Mexico, enjoying four and a half months in Cabo San Lucas after a wonderful road trip to get to Baja California Sur. As our time there drew to a close, and knowing that the future is never certain, I reflected on what I loved about our... Continue Reading →
