QUICK & HEARTY TURKEY BARLEY SOUP

Turkey Barley Soup I love the slow, easy pace of this time of year. The hectic holidays are just a memory and life has settled back into somewhat of a routine. Work and school have resumed and the off hours are reserved for fun winter activities like ice skating, tobogganing, skiing and snowshoeing. The cold weather and lots of outdoor activities make the winter months the perfect time of year for body and soul-warming comfort food. This is the time for hearty stews, casseroles, chili and … [Read more...]

Mushroom, Leek and Turkey Sausage Stuffing

I don't know exactly where it went, but boy oh boy, did this summer ever fly by! Honestly, it just seems like a few weeks ago that our daughter and her two sweet puppies were home for a visit...and that was the end of May! Already, many of our trees are starting to show their stunning colours of gold, orange, and red. The days are still comfortably warm, but there is a definite nip in the air once the sun goes down. This is the time of year when I love to bake pumpkin muffins, apple pies, … [Read more...]

BBQ Turkey Sausage, Potatoes and Vegetable Foil Packs

I love summer!  It's just an entirely different pace than the rest of the year. Even when we're not officially on "vacation", for me, the entire season feels somewhat like a vacation.  Life seems to slow down and the summer vibe is more relaxed. Even though we still eat as nutritiously as possible, preparation and execution are much more laid back in the summer. Think barbecue! Canadians are crazy for BBQ season. And nothing says summer barbeque better than putting juicy, tasty turkey on the … [Read more...]

While I still don't mind spending the occasional afternoon in the kitchen, puttering around and making a big … [Read more...]
