My husband and I are on our last visit to my sister’s house in Parksville, on Vancouver Island. She is moving across the country…

An old favourite with a smoky twist

Sometimes, in the midst of celebratory foods, we just feel like something simple. Like a melty, comforting, satisfying mac and cheese!

A simple weeknight duck fettuccine

Whole ducks in the frozen section of the grocery store are often overlooked, they seem like a project and that’s not always what you’re looking for when it comes to dinner. This week’s recipe is a weeknight duck ragu, best served with fresh fettuccine.

Bucatini with red wine braised squid and pepperoni

If you’re new to cooking squid, or haven’t had them outside of fried calamari, this is a great way to give them a try. The squid turn out tender and mild, while the sauce takes on most of its flavor from the pepperoni and the red wine.

Linguine with herb battuto

This is a play on a classic Italian sauce (called battutto di erbe) and is similar to pesto. Linguine with herb battuto.

Student noodles

These noodles are perfect for students, or those of us who let their pantries get down to pretty much nothing before venturing out. Which is pretty much all of us these days.

Squid and salami spaghetti

Squid is an inexpensive, sustainable and awesome little cephalopod that should be part of everyone’s diet, beyond fried calamari at the bar (an awesome little appy as well, don’t get me wrong). If you’ve never cooked squid, go grab a bag of frozen rings at the grocery store and give this recipe a try.

Baked spaghetti with bison

Everyone has that dish that they always order when they find it on a menu – and for the lovely man that keeps my freezer well stocked with beautiful wild game, that dish is baked spaghetti.

Bison Dan Dan Noodles

Peanut butter is great. It reaches it’s full potential if you spike it with chili oil & mix it with fresh noodles. Bison Dan Dan.
