Instead of buying frozen desserts, you can make them at home in less than 30 minutes. With the help of Zoku's ice cream maker, I made a gorgeous low-fat chocolate frozen dairy dessert with WowButter morsels in it. If you aren't allergic to peanuts, you could use peanut butter instead.
Craig Claiborne, long-time food editor and restaurant critic for The New York Times once said, "There is nothing better on a cold wintry day than a properly made pot pie." I couldn't agree more. And since I've discovered how versatile WowButter is in sauces, I decided to create a Thai inspired peanut-free chicken pot pie.
We all need to stay connected - especially in bad weather. If you've ever lost power in your smartphone at a crucial time, you end up with "charge anxiety" (like me). So, I asked my IT guy to help me choose the top quality products to keep mobile devices fully charged.
Pad thai is a flavourful stir-fried noodle dish that can be made with shrimp, chicken, tofu, egg, or crab. Most pad thai (aka phat thai) dishes contain roasted peanuts, fish sauce, and bean sprouts. But the recent bean sprout recalls are enough to keep my friends from eating pad thai (even those without an allergy to peanuts or fish).
My man-servant brought home ham steaks and asked me to create a brand new recipe. Staring at my kitchen (and into cyberspace), I found inspiration in the LCBO recipe finder and a bottle of vintage port. Where else? My Canadian tweak was maple syrup but you could also use honey.
As soon as Thanksgiving was over, my IT guy asked me to make my world-famous pepperpot stew. What I love about this dish is how tender the stewing beef is after being in the slow cooker all day. It's a hearty meal to come home to after a long day shopping, sightseeing, or hitting the slopes.
Sometimes I'm in a slap-it-all together type of mood, especially after dinner. Last week, my friend shared her giant cookie with me and I thought I'd try to make one gluten-free at home. With the help of Sarah Carey's video and some tweaking, I figured it out.
Thanksgiving desserts seem to be the same ones every year - whether I am in Canada or the US. This year, I thought I'd try a gluten-free blueberry pudding cake made in my slow cooker. It's the ideal way to serve up a warm dessert without having to use my oven, stove, and microwave.
If you're like me, you've avoided making scallop potatoes for years. Sure, they taste great but the slicing, the layering and extra sauce pan makes it labour-intensive. Well, you are in for a treat. Saveur magazine's executive food editor Todd Coleman has refined a quicker method that will cut your prep and baking time almost in half.
