Creamy Parsnip Puree

Parsnip Puree

Purees are very simple. So simple in fact, that they can often look like baby food. But one whiff of them while they’re cooking or one small taste will quickly tell you that purees are full of flavour. And not only can they be a nice garnish on the plate, they can also be a nice […]

How to Supreme an Orange

Supreme Orange

When I first created the garnishes section of my blog, to be honest, I didn’t know if it was something that was really worthwhile.

Once made the puree can be used as a […]

Kate’s Ketchup


There’s an ongoing ketchup battle happening at my house. Brent only likes Heinz, the most expensive ketchup to be found at just about any grocery store, and one that he doesn’t appreciate me using in my cooking (such as when I need half the bottle to make barbecue sauce.) I’ve tried to convince him to buy two […]
