Blueberry Pie

Mystery Ingredient Wild Blueberry Pie

Rating: Unrated
I came up with this tasty twist on a classic blueberry pie recipe when I was searching the spice cupboard for nutmeg. My family loved it so much that I made two more pies the next day! Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

Hoisin-Glazed Salmon

Rating: Unrated
A spicy hoisin sauce gives this sweet and spicy salmon an Asian flair!
No-Bake Cookies

Nanaimo Bars III

Rating: Unrated
Because it's three layers, this sounds hard but it's worth it. My son is famous for making and taking these in to work. I've heard other names but here in the Northwest everyone knows them as Nanaimo bars. They are sold on British Columbia Ferries and at coffee stands. If you can't find custard powder, I've used instant pudding mix with good results.
Wraps and Rolls Appetizers

Green Onion Cakes

Rating: Unrated
An excellent and simple recipe, these will make some delicious green onion cakes that are addictive and are just as good, if not better, than the store bought ones.
Pork Recipes

Northern Ontario Partridge (Ruffed Grouse)

Rating: Unrated
This was my Scottish grandmother's recipe for partridge, also commonly known as ruffed grouse. Partridge breasts are seared in bacon grease, then roasted in a simple wine sauce and served with a rich gravy.
Chinese Recipes

Crispy Ginger Beef

Rating: Unrated
This recipe is so much better than take out! Serve it with homemade fried rice or plain rice. If you like spicy, just add more chili pepper flakes!

Fish Chowder

Mom's Nova Scotia Seafood Chowder

Rating: Unrated
Being from the Easy Coast, I've tried a lot of different chowders; however, my Mom's takes the cake. She makes a huge pot of this chowder every Christmas Eve and all of it is gone by Christmas night. Although it is not very healthy, it is an awesome treat once in awhile for any of us that love seafood! I normally throw in a dash of garlic and onion powder. Enjoy!
Lobster Recipes

Lobster Rolls

Rating: Unrated
I grew up in Nova Scotia where seafood was cheap. My Mom and grandmothers had some pretty inventive ways of making lobster 'not-boring!' Now, lobster is a treat and costs a fortune. I've paid over ten dollars for one of these lobster rolls in Cape Cod and it wasn't half as good or half as big as the ones my Mom taught me to make. This is a wonderful summer (or winter) treat and makes a fancy luncheon to impress your friends. (And no, I don't eat the green stuff in the lobster!)

My Favorite Sesame Noodles

Rating: Unrated
This recipe for sesame noodles is one I've created through trial and error. It combines green onions, peanut butter and sesame oil for a wonderfully complex flavour.
Side Dishes

Pork and Wild Rice Casserole

Rating: Unrated
This recipe is a delicious use of wild rice. Just be sure to season your ground pork if you don't buy it preseasoned (usually labeled as pork sausage). Fresh Italian sausage can also be used, just cut open the casing. Works great prepared a day ahead and re-heated for 20 minutes at serving time.

Danielle's Seafood Chowder

I wanted to serve a different dish from the usual seafood casserole so I played with the dish and came up with this.

Venison Pastrami

Rating: Unrated

Think venison has to taste like deer? Not with this recipe. Give it a try and you will make it time and time again - it tastes just like pastrami. Your friends will beg you to make this for them all the time!
