Shorter Days and Colder Nights

Hey everyone! Sorry this edition of “Foodie Friday” is a couple of days late! Last week was slightly crazy for us…in fact, the craziness is still continuing! As I type this there are three men in my kitchen installing new granite counter tops. Anyway, for this weeks dish I wanted to bring you something that was as quick as it is delicious!!

I was thinking, with these super cold days we have been having (we had SNOW yesterday!) I wanted to share with you something that was stick to your ribs, fill your tummy good, and loaded with vegetables! So friends, this week you will be shown how to make my very tasty Chicken Pot Pie.

I hope you enjoy it, and as always please feel free to leave a comment with your favourite dish or substitution so I can share with everyone else!

Fall Vineyard

Thanksgiving is upon us!

I can’t believe that it is already Thanksgiving weekend! This calls for a special edition of Foodie Friday! This week I am showing you two easy sides to dress up your bland Thanksgiving table…I know that sounds offensive, but really let me take a stab at it here.

Every year you have a giant delicious turkey in the middle of your table surrounded by what? Mashed potatoes, corn, stuffing, gravy, parsnips and maybe some carrots…am I right? Do you see the colour scheme there!? Now, if cranberry sauce is the only thing adding colour to your Thanksgiving table this post is for you!

I made two dishes for you to take to your dinner and really impress the family…this is especially good for all you newlyweds still trying to make an impression on the in-laws! The first is a Sauteed Brussel Sprout dish with Pancetta and the second is a delicious Kale with Cranberries and Toasted Pecans…mmm! (Click the recipe link above for everything you need to make these dishes!).

Grab a glass of wine, keep the bottle handy for the second recipe, and enjoy! After all, everybody needs a little creativity in their lives <3
