It’s been a while since I’ve posted a cooking blog, but I recently did my own personal take on a classic comfort food, Chicken Parmesan. The idea for the recipe came out of a poorly executed replacement sauce a few weeks back. When Heather, suggested that it could be turned into a slightly different variation on Chicken Parm. And last week after figuring some details out I made it and it tastes amazing! Not to mention it gives the dish a little more communal feel and makes it super easy to scale up or down.

One of my wife’s favourite dishes at our local Milton Thai Restaurant, The Thai House, is their Basil Pad Thai. She enjoys that it’s not too saucy and is spicier than their usual Pad Thai, which is my favourite. So when I happened across this recipe on Pinterest I knew she would enjoy it right off the bat.

The Chicken 2-3 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts cut up into bite-sized pieces. 5Read More →

Whenever I’m out traveling and come into a new town or city, there are two types of takeout that I often will judge a location on, the local hole-in-the-wall pizza joint and the Chinese place, specifically their General Tao Chicken. I’ve had some excellent General Tao such as Chambersburg and Waterville, and some terrible ones in Ottawa and Gent. Now, this can be a bit of a difficult dish to master at home. Thankfully Heather and I in our trips through Pinterest ran across a Slow Cooker version of the dish and decided to give it a go. INGREDIENTS One of the best parts ofRead More →

I have never met a single person who did not like pizza in some form or another. I’ll be the first to admit, whenever I’m staying in a new town there are two things I like to get delivered to the hotel room, the first is the local Chinese take-out place, the second is a local pizza joint. While take-out is convenient, homemade is better. And the best part is that you can have it ready in about an hour. Before I get into the details, there are a couple of items that will make your life easier when making homemade pizza, the pizza stone,Read More →
