Apple crumble is as close to a perfect food as I’ve ever found. It can be breakfast just as easily as it can be dessert or even dinner. It’s fast to prepare, and when it comes right down to it, pretty healthy... more

One pan meals are always the goal, if I have to break out a second pan I’m disappointed in myself. Weekdays are long, take-out gets expensive, frozen pizzas can be a bit lackluster. Pork loins, however, cook fast, are inexpensive, and happen to be... more

Roast potatoes are great. They’re a clean and simple side dish – salty, savory, crispy and soft at the same time. With the holidays coming up quickly here’s a twist on the classic roast potato that you can scale up or down whether you’re dining... more

There’s a lot to love about fake (imitation might be a better word, but let’s be honest) crab. It is made from pollock, which is a very sustainable fish, it is inexpensive especially compared to the “real” counterpart and it is delicious. more

These breakfast wraps are my favorite part of every hunting or camping trip. Trekking through the Yukon has so much to offer (vast nature, beautiful views, abundant wildlife) and yet it’s the smell of these wraps crisping up over a fire that’s the... more

Fruit salad is boring – it’s a lot of chopping and peeling for an underwhelming mound of food people take a token spoonful of to push around their plate. But the concept is solid: fruit is delicious, and having someone take the time to do all the... more

Hot dog carving is my latest passion project. This past weekend I became the general of my own army comprised of perfectly seared men and women armed for battle in a soft and squishy white bun. You too can become a leader among men, all you need... more

Of all the fantastic ingredients that the Yukon has to offer, rhubarb might be one of the most unsung. It’s prevalent in most gardens and even grows wild on the side of the road, and yet it’s fireweed, lowbush cranberries, and spruce tips that... more
