A blend of garlic, seasonings, and red wine combine to give you all the flavor of sausage, without the hassle of stuffing the meat into links. Makes a fantastic burger, topped with grilled peppers, onions and provolone cheese.

Instant Pot® Turkey Chili

17 May 2021

It doesn’t get easier than this! Brown some meat, then toss in the rest of the ingredients and hit start! Feel free to adjust the heat level by adding more chipotle peppers and/or adobo sauce. The cocoa powder and cinnamon are ideas I got from my favorite chili seasoning available at a local spice shop – they really transform the dish! I like to top this with sour cream, green onion and shredded smoked cheddar.

Microwave Spaghetti Squash

17 May 2021

Microwaving spaghetti squash is much easier and quicker than waiting for it to roast in the oven. Once done, it is ready to be topped with your favorite ingredients, or kept simple with just a pat of butter and some salt. For longer strands, cut the squash crosswise instead of lengthwise.

Truffle-Parmesan Phyllo Crackers

17 May 2021

These buttery and flaky crackers have a delicate texture and are lightly flavored with truffle and Parmesan. They can be a little finicky to make at first, but once you get the hang of it, you will be hooked!

Brown Sugar BBQ Rub

17 May 2021

This is my favorite rub to use when I smoke meats. I threw it together to use on smoked pork butt, but it also works really well on chicken and ribs. Apply liberally to meat and let sit overnight for best flavor. The brown sugar helps make a nice bark. Makes enough to cover two 8-pound pork butts or 6 racks of ribs.

Freekeh Salad with Tahini Dressing

17 May 2021

This filling and satisfying salad with a Mediterranean twist makes a nice lunch or the perfect side to accompany grilled fish or chicken. Freekeh is low in fat and high in protein and fiber, making it a great alternative to quinoa or rice.

Strawberry-Mango Grilled Chicken Salad

17 May 2021

All the flavors of summer are packed into this arugula and strawberry salad. Perfect for a light dinner on those days you don’t want to heat up the house using the oven. Use any mild-flavored oil for the dressing and your favorite seasoning on the chicken. Feel free to divide the ingredients between four large bowls instead of arranging on a platter.

Air Fryer Scotch Eggs

17 May 2021

When you make Scotch eggs in your air fryer, you get all the deliciousness without the mess and added fat of deep frying. They make the perfect breakfast or snack, especially when served with the chutney dipping sauce. Cook the eggs to your liking; either hard-boiled or slightly soft, you can’t go wrong. You can find mango chutney in the Indian section of your grocery store.

Maple Leaf Cocktail

17 May 2021

I combined some of my favorite flavors from my homeland into this “all things Canadian” cocktail, which might just leave you singing “O Canada”! Garnish with additional frozen berries, if desired.
