Made with fresh seasonal ingredients, Steak Pomodoro is a pasta that is perfect for summer

Posted on: June 28th, 2020 by Joel Steingart

Three of my favourite parts of summer are fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, and steak on the barbecue – so naturally when you have a recipe that combines all 3 you make it! When you make pasta pomodoro you want to make tomato the star of the dish and this recipe does just that! The balsamic […]

After years of searching I have achieved pizza dough perfection!

Posted on: May 22nd, 2020 by Joel Steingart

Friends, there is nothing more satisfying than making a perfect pizza! I’m talking beautifully caramelized cheese on the top, the toppings are fully cooked, and the crust is crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside with a delicious flavour. Over the course of trying different methods and recipes (like my double rise […]

A delicious seasoning blend of herbs and spices for your roast chicken

Posted on: May 13th, 2020 by Joel Steingart

Chicken is so versatile. You can add so much flavour through a tasty marinade or blend of spices. On it’s own, chicken is very bland so it needs seasoning in order to provide a depth of flavour. When I have smaller pieces of chicken such as thighs and drumsticks, I find a marinade works so […]

A delicious smokey and spicy southwest chipotle salad

Posted on: February 22nd, 2020 by Joel Steingart

Salads are delicious! I love side salads and meal size salads. I love pasta salad, potato salad, Cesar salad, and a fresh garden salad. Years ago, I discovered this chipotle southwest chicken and bacon salad at a local restaurant. It was a delicious lunch treat with a delicious smokey chipotle flavour that packs a bit […]

The king of roasts… tender and delicious prime rib

Posted on: February 9th, 2020 by Joel Steingart

If you are throwing a dinner party or want a fancy home cooked dinner, prime rib is one of the most delicious meals you can make!  Prime rib roast is juicy, tender and full of flavour.

There is almost nothing better than fresh cut fries… unless you add a roasted garlic aioli!

Posted on: January 24th, 2020 by Joel Steingart

Fresh cut fries are one of my favourites! The aromas that you get from a fry stand like vinegar and crispy potatoes in a fryer are enough to make you salivate and crave french fries. I have been trying to perfect a good french fry recipe for a while. I have done lots of research, […]

When Danielle and I do chicken wing night we love to do a variety of sauces and flavours. We have a few kinds in the repertoire like dry rubs, my Smokey bbq sauce, traditional buffalo sauce, and sometimes we will try to create something on the fly. One of our favourites that we often include […]

Crispy fried chicken with a kick of cayenne… if you love spice, you will love Nashville Hot Chicken

Posted on: December 14th, 2019 by Joel Steingart

One of my dream road trips is to travel some of the southern states. I have often dreamt of renting a car and driving from bbq stand to bbq stand. A recent food trend that has piqued my interest and added to the list of things to try on that trip is Nashville hot chicken. […]

Pork skewers with a creamy ginger and curry rub, accompanied by a delicious peanut dipping sauce… pork satay was one of my favourite meals growing up up!

Posted on: December 6th, 2019 by Joel Steingart

This is my comfort food! I like to watch the food network now and then and I always see restaurants featuring “comfort food” like meatloaf, or pot roast. I’ve never been someone to get overly excited about any of those types of foods, so I  always thought maybe I don’t like comfort food. I started […]

Lemon, garlic, and spice… piri piri is the perfect sauce for chicken!

Posted on: November 23rd, 2019 by Joel Steingart

I discovered piri piri a few years ago. A new Nandos had opened up in town and Danielle had raved about having their sauce when she took a trip to England years back. The first time I tried piri piri I was hooked! Lemon is one of my favourite combinations with chicken. Pairing that with […]
