    Roasted Potato Salad with Maple Dijon Vinaigrette with Grilled Fish Tacos

    Well this isn’t really an exact recipe per say, like with measurements and all that jazz. Frankly measuring somedays annoys me. I also have no idea where measuring cups or spoons are with our kitchen out of order in this renovation mess – but trust me – you can do this without measurements – just go with it. I’ve been craving pasta salad! OK so why make potato salad you say – well lets just say I don’t want to ruin my nice pots to boil water on the BBQ while we don’t have a stove – so I decided to give up on my pasta dreams and settle for…

    Coconut Curried Shrimp on the BBQ with Cardamom Scented Rice

    I have never attempted to make a Curried Shrimp Dish on the BBQ. But hey whether your “Glamping” this summer or just not wanting to heat up the house with the stove – I have to say it worked out pretty well.

I have to admit, many days I have fallen into this rut. Although I have to say, I’m growing rather sick of processed take out food. I decided to step out of my rut and use my creativity and cook up some good food, that is good food that does not require an oven or stovetop – or hopefully not much cleanup (our bar sink downstairs is rather small…

    Linguini Shrimp Fra Diavolo

    Stay tuned friends. I have decided to go back to blogging. I’m hoping one day that something will transition to enable me to doing something with ‘doing what I love’ which is cooking, creating, inspiring. For now, I just aim to continue to create, share and journal my love of all things food and cooking. We are renovating our kitchen! Yes, I currently have no kitchen – so probably not the best of times to decide to start back up with my blog. Thankfully it’s summertime here in Alberta so the BBQ has been a lifesaver, but I cannot wait until this whole renovation project is finished – fingers crossed…
