Grilled Turkey Sausage and Summer Greens Pizza {w/Giveaway}

This past winter, I can vividly remember looking out the windows at the mounds of snow surrounding our house and mentally counting the days until warmer weather.  Now finally, after a long cold winter, the warm summer days and nights have arrived.  Very soon now, summer vacations will begin and the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer that we dreamed about all winter will become a reality! While I still don't mind spending the occasional afternoon in the kitchen, puttering around and making a big … [Read more...]

Tex-Mex Turkey Rice Bowl with Avocado Dressing

  Tex-Mex Turkey Rice Bowl with Avocado Dressing I love to roast a whole turkey on the weekend.  The house is filled with the most mouth-watering aromas and there is just something so homey and comforting about those delicious smells wafting from the oven.

And, both of our kids, even though they live alone, almost … [Read more...]

Traditional Roast Turkey with Apricot & Pecan Stuffing

The upcoming holiday season is by far, my favourite time of the year. And, I think the word "season" describes it perfectly, because the holidays are so much more than just a single day. This seems the only time of the year that we all share a joint purpose. It’s like some unwritten contract that we have all signed, promising to be more charitable, appreciative, tolerant and most of all, nicer to each other. It’s funny, but when I think about the holidays, my thoughts are never about gifts, … [Read more...]

BBQ Turkey Club with Spicy Mayo

Thank goodness summer has finally arrived! Schools will soon be out for the summer holiday, the days will be less structured and mealtime is going to be more casual. I love the relaxed, easy-going vibe of summer! One of my favourite food items to cook with in the summer is Canadian Turkey. Turkey isn't just for "special occasions".  I love having turkey in the summer months, it is so convenient and summer is the perfect season to cook, eat, and grill our favorite bird. Turkey is a light … [Read more...]
