BBQ Chicken Ranch Burgers

By Tuesday, September 16, 2014

CHICKEN BURGERS! BBQ season technically can’t end until it’s snowing, right? I feel for the folks in Alberta and New Brunswick who have had snow already, but in Ottawa (and Halifax, where I was last week) we’re A-O-K. No snow yet (thank goodness). So we are definitely ...

Strawberry-Blueberry Galette

You guys! Thanks so much for all your positive feedback on my first Photo an Hour. I'm so glad you liked it! While shooting my second instalment, I realized there were zero photos of me cooking... which is not representative of how I spend my days at all, but ...

Classic Banana Bread

I’ve been making this recipe since I was 14. Seriously! Banana bread was one of the first things I learned to bake at my first job. In retrospect, it’s great for beginner bakers because it’s so darn easy. Pretty hard to mess up, right? Well that’s what ...
