Breakfast for Two

Steak and Eggs Scrambled Eggs with Sautéed Mushrooms and Fried Potatoes Have I mentioned before that Moe loves breakfast? Decided to spoil him with one of his favourites. Steak and Eggs. Beef tenderloin pan fried and served with sauteed mushrooms and fried potatoes. He had his eggs sunnyside up. I skipped the steak and just…

Greek – Roast Chicken and Potatoes

Rather than a traditional roast chicken dinner I decided to go Greek. Lots of garlic, oregano and fresh squeezed lemon juice over the potatoes and the chicken. Roasted at 500°F. I love how the potatoes absorb all the wonderful flavours, especially the lemon.

Satisfying a Craving

I presalted a chicken on Friday with the intention of roasting it for dinner last night. But at work yesterday, I kept thinking about chicken and dumplings. I had a real craving for a bowl of comfort. I had also bought some bone in chicken breasts on Friday, so, when I got home from work…

Buttermilk Biscuits

I’m not sure which I like best. Sweet Scones or Savory Buttermilk biscuits. You can adjust them both to suit your own taste. With scones you can add your favourite fruit and with biscuits you can leave them plain or add different herbs and cheeses. This morning I went with buttermilk biscuits adding fresh chives…

Osso Bucco

Tonight we had Osso Bucco with Gremolata served over Polenta. I use chicken broth with minced garlic as the liquid for the polenta. Butter and Parmesan cheese are added at the end. Sauted Rapini on the side. Home Cookin Chapter: Recipes From Thibeault’s Table Osso Bucco========== Based on Roasted Veal Shanks from Lidia’s Italian Table…

St. Paddy’s Day Dinner

Herbed Irish Soda Bread You know when something doesn’t taste bad, there is nothing really wrong with it but you just don’t like it? And if you never have it again as long as you live you would be okay with that? Well that is how I feel about a corned beef and cabbage dinner….

Late Breakfast

Bacon, Mushroom and Potato Hash with Poached Eggs Moe loves breakfast. Especially if it contains eggs. Me? I’m happy with something sweet. Danish, Scone, donut. Preferably around 10:00 AM. Since I’m off work today I decided to make a big breakfast. I have no idea what we will have for dinner. Now that I’ve eaten…
