Quick Salmon Patties

These salmon patties are a staple in our house. I keep a couple of cans of salmon in the pantry to whip up these patties for dinner anytime. They are good as the main in a meal, on a bun as a burger or cold from the fridge. Advertisements

Greek Pasta Salad

I love pasta salad, but the problem is sometimes I find that the pasta is quite tasteless & worse for me is if it is undercooked…or overcooked I suppose!  I realize I don’t love the vegetables in there either…I am not being critical of other peoples pasta salads…I just wanted to make mine a bit different…

Chicken breasts with Za’atar, Chickpeas & Tomatoes

Inspired by a recipe I saw on Bon Appetit, I used the avatar spice I had in the cupboard, a can of chickpeas & some tomatoes that were sitting around. The recipe from Bon Appetite had different spices, but the idea of  chickpeas & tomatoes was from there

Pineapple Meatballs

This recipe is from a friend of mine. She gave it to me over 30 years ago when I lived in Yellowknife NWT I think….I am not exactly sure of when I got it, it is written on a small piece of paper with kind of cryptic instructions! 

Baked Cauliflower with Cheese

Funny thing about this recipe…It is called Cauliflower “mac & cheese” casserole.  The person who was eating it couldn’t find any pasta….& was wondering where it was! But there is no pasta in this recipe. The cauliflower is chopped up into bite size pieces & is used instead of pasta

Kobe Marinade for Chicken on the BBQ

This is absolutely one of our favorite marinades for chicken pieces when we are going to BBQ chicken. We BBQ chicken a lot in the summer & I like a BBQ sauce on the chicken but sometimes, I just want to switch it up a bit!
