Not only is it a great marinade for meats; you can tuck a bit into a sandwich or wrap. Dollop some into fajitas or on top of grilled burgers, or mix a bit into mayonnaise to make a fantastic burger sauce or sandwich spread. Use it as a topping for baked potatoes, along with sour cream. Swirl a spoonful into a bowl of tomato soup, or into a bowl of cream soup, or top a plate of scrambled eggs with it. Mix a few spoonfuls of it up with mayonnaise and sour cream to make a crackerjack dip, or stir a dollop into a pasta salad or potato salad.
Or stir a bit of it into a regular vinaigrette to add some zip to your salads. Red Chimichurri Sauce can be served immediately, or made a day or more ahead. If made ahead, the spice level will be higher as the chili flakes soften and release their heat. Remove the stem and seeds from the bell pepper and cut it into large chunks.
To measure the parsley, tear the leaves off the stems and pack them semi-firmly into a measuring cup. Add the red wine vinegar and the olive oil. Scrape it into a serving bowl or storage container. The red chimichurri sauce keeps refrigerated for up to a week if it lasts that long. It is best left to sit for a half hour before serving so the onion, garlic, and pepper flakes have a chance to release their flavours and mellow out.
Serve Red Chimichurri Sauce over grilled, roasted, or pan-fried meat, poultry, or fish, or serve over steamed or baked potatoes. Or use it as a marinade for any type of meat. Mix a few spoonfuls into a mixture of mayonnaise and sour cream for a delicious dip, or just into mayonnaise for a tasty sandwich spread, too. See above for more ideas on how to use it. Stir all ingredients together. Keep the prepared rub in a small airtight container at room temperature. Will keep for up to 6 months.
To use, sprinkle each side of the meat steaks, pork, chicken, fish, even tofu liberally with the rub. Leave dry, or drizzle on a small amount of olive oil and rub all over the meat with your fingers to moisten the rub. Grill, roast, or pan-fry as usual. We like to grill our steak on medium heat, in a covered barbecue, about 5 to 6 minutes on the first side, then 3 to 4 minutes on the second side, then remove them and let them rest for 10 minutes before serving with a dollop of green or red chimichurri sauce.

These simple 3-Ingredient Quinoa Pancakes are hearty, delicious, and versatile — but best of all they are absolutely quick to whip up!
They make a healthy breakfast for those rushed mornings when you need to get everyone out of the door quickly! Your senses heighten, the leaves suddenly look clearer, you detect a subtle earthy scent on the wind, and you pull your sweater a teeny bit closer. I come alive with those first subtle signs of autumn.
They may signal the end of summer and the dying of all things lush and green, but to me, those tiny changes signal a rebirth; a new season, a new beginning, and a whole new range of possibilities. The year starts now. It all starts with my birthday near the end of August, exactly four months before Christmas because of course, a birthday is always fun and the excitement just keeps on mounting.
Then the excitement just keeps mounting as we head into the harvest. Growing up on a farm, this was the best time of year. The fields were golden and all hands were needed to help get the crops and the garden in.
It is a busy time and a season of abundance. Once the garden is safely put to bed, the reward for our labours is celebrating the harvest with a Thanksgiving feast. Then we dive into the crazy fun of Halloween. After that, for two wonderful months, the thrill continues with the mounting excitement of the holiday season.
These oh-so-easy pancakes are a winner. Plus, their main ingredient is that healthy, high protein little quinoa grain. Or my favourite way — with a spoonful of rich honey yogurt, fresh fruit, and then the drizzle of maple syrup. You can even use quinoa pancakes as a base for savoury toppings. Try piling them up with chili, your favourite curry, or a hearty stew for a fantastic dinner. The absolute beauty of this recipe is that you can keep the batter in the fridge for up to a week.
Longer than that and it starts to ferment, but is still edible — more like a sourdough pancake. For African injera pancakes you actually ferment the grain, teff, in order to make them. The cooked pancakes also reheat well in the microwave for even faster make-ahead breakfasts. I did an experiment and a taste test to see what other grains worked if I substituted them for the quinoa:.
Put the quinoa into a bowl or jar and cover with water by several inches. Leave it to soak overnight or at least six hours, either in the fridge or at room temperature. Dump the soaked quinoa into a fine-meshed sieve, drain, and rinse it well under running water. Add a small amount of butter or oil to a non-stick skillet or spray it with cooking oil spray and heat it over medium heat.
Cook until light brown underneath, then flip and cook the other side. A quart of golden canned peaches: Flecked with tiny specks of vanilla, these peaches are simple, luscious, and full of sunshiny flavour. Canning them yourself is easy and satisfying.
Who can resist these luscious golden orbs that taste of sweet summer? Canning fulfills that need to gather and store food to feed our families; that basic instinct for survival and assurance of nourishment in leaner times ahead.
It is an act of pure pleasure and satisfaction. Taking a mound of fresh, tree-ripened peaches and turning them into these glowing jars of gold makes me happy. Opening a jar on a winter day and spooning a few halves into a bowl for a simple dessert, or to top with a dollop of honey yogurt for an easy breakfast is a delicious joy. It instantly connects me back to sunny summer days. We rented a holiday home in the Okanagan valley in British Columbia and just spent time hanging out and reconnecting.
It had been many years since all six of us had been together, so the time was pretty special — and crazy — and a whole lotta fun. Imagine five sisters and one energetic mom sharing a house for a week!
The Okanagan is in the heart of wine country; a hot and sunny valley filled with vineyards and fruit orchards. We mostly hung out on the deck of our lovely holiday home overlooking Lake Okanagan.
The air was hazy with smoke from the many forest fires raging in B. We hiked a bit at neighbouring Fintry Park and up the nearly steps to the spectacular waterfalls there. My youngest sister and I took a different way back down and came upon a collection of inukshuks left by previous travelers. Even though we enjoyed mostly just hanging out at our place, we did make one foray into the rest of the Okanagan Valley to do a bit of wine tasting.
The time with my mom and sisters was a treasure of memories. We had a lot of laughs and stories to tell. There were late night gab sessions, early morning gab sessions, and afternoon gab sessions. We cooked together and just enjoyed being a family again. There may have been much some wine consumed, too. And when I came home I had a case of beautiful Okanagan peaches and one of sweet juicy nectarines to preserve.
All you do is give the peaches a dip in hot water, slip off their skins, cut them and pop them into clean jars. You make a syrup of sugar, water, a squirt of lemon juice, and a vanilla bean for some fantastic flavour.
Some sugar is needed to keep the peaches firm when they are processed. The lemon juice added to the syrup helps retain fresh flavour and also helps keep the canned peaches from darkening as quickly if they are stored longer. If you have any syrup left over, it makes lovely iced tea or lemonade. Sterilize the amount of jars you think you will need plus a couple extra. You can also place the empty jars right-side-up in a canning pot and fill the pot with hot water to cover the jars by one inch, then bring the water to a boil and boil for 10 minutes.
Turn off the oven and leave them in there until you use them. Put the corresponding number of new metal snap lids into a saucepan and cover them with water. Heat them over medium heat until simmering, then turn the heat to low and keep them hot until you need them. Fill a large pot of water about half full and bring it to a boil. Have a bowl of ice water set next to the pot. Drop 4 to 6 peaches at a time into the boiling water and leave them for 1 minute.
If you put in more than that it cools the water down too much. Quickly remove them with a slotted spoon and put them into the cold water. You can easily slip the skins of the peaches with your hands. Cut each peach in half around the groove and gently twist the two halves in opposite directions.
Remove the pit from the one half. Leave the peaches as halves or cut the halves into wedges if desired. Drop the cut peaches into a bowl filled with water to which a couple tablespoons lemon juice or apple cider vinegar have been added, to prevent the peaches from darkening. Prepare the syrup by combining the water, sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla if using.
Cut the vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds with the back of a knife. Place all the scraped seeds plus the pod into the water. You can omit the vanilla for regular canned peaches. Heat and stir just until the sugar is dissolved.
If using halves, place them cut-side-down, stacked evenly so you can get the maximum number in. If using wedges, gently shake each jar so the wedges settle and you can fit more in.
Cut the vanilla bean pod into enough pieces to divide among the amount of jars you have, and tuck a piece down the side of each jar. Slide a butter knife down the sides of each jar and wiggle it gently to release any air bubbles. Do this on all sides of each jar. Wipe the rims of each jar with a clean, damp cloth.
Place the jars in a canning pot in a rack, or in a stockpot large enough to hold the jars with room to close the lid. You may need to do them in batches. If using a stockpot, place a clean dishcloth spread flat on the bottom of the pot to prevent the jars from shaking and banging against the bottom.
Fill the canning pot with hot water to the bottom of the screw band lids. Cover and bring to a boil. Remove the canner from the heat and leave the jars in the water for 5 minutes, then remove each jar with jar tongs or carefully using a tea towel. Try not to tilt them as you lift them from the water.
Place the jars on a tea towel set onto the counter and leave them undisturbed as they cool, for at least 12 hours. The tea towel prevents the possibility of the jars cracking as they come in contact with a cool counter. Do not press on the lids as they are cooling. If any jars have not sealed you will see that the lids are still domed slightly upwards. You can test, once the jars are completely cooled, by pressing on the center of the snap lids. Store those jars in the fridge and use them up within the next few weeks.
Store the sealed jars in a cool, dark place. They are best if used within two years, but will last longer than that, as long as they stay sealed, although the peaches may darken over extended storage. Sour Cherries in Brandy. Your hamburgers and hot dogs will thank you if you add a dollop of this fantastic, sweet, tangy zucchini relish to them.
Or try it on a tuna or egg sandwich! What a delicious way to preserve that glut bounty of zucchinis to enjoy all year long. Last night I thought I heard some strange beepings and saw weird lights flashing over the zucchinis in the garden, and when I went out to look this morning, lo and behold.
Look at the size of our zucchini plants! I get real pleasure from chopping up veggies, stirring the pot, and filling the jars. Looking at rows of preserves gleaming on our shelves in the basement fills my heart with pride. I started out helping my mom can hundreds of jars each summer, when I was just around ten years old.
When you had to feed a large farm family with five hungry kids, you needed massive quantities of food. Every couple years I make a double batch of this delicious zucchini relish, and it provides enough to give away a few jars and a good supply for us to enjoy. It is, of course, tasty on hot dogs and burgers, but have you tried a spoonful stirred into tuna salad or macaroni salad?
Or a layer slathered on an egg sandwich? Or a ham and cheese sandwich? Have you tried a dollop of it next to a piece of grilled chicken or a pork chop? A jar of zucchini relish in your fridge provides all sorts of lip-smacking possibilities. You can chop the vegetables for this relish by hand, but it is a LOT of work to get them small enough — a food processor makes it an easy job even doing it in a mini-chopper in batches would work. Using a food processor to chop the vegetables makes quick work of them.
You can cut them by hand, but it is very laborious — you need to make sure to chop them very finely. Do the same with the onions and peppers. Combine the chopped vegetables with the salt in a large bowl. Let stand for 2 hours, stirring often so the salt is well dispersed.
This draws excess moisture from the veggies. Drain the vegetables in a sieve, then rinse them. Stir them with your hands or a spoon, then pour them into the sieve again to drain a second time. This will remove most of the salt. Squeeze out the extra moisture by pressing down on the vegetables in the sieve.
In a large stock pot, combine the sugar, vinegar, dry mustard, turmeric, celery seed, and pepper. Bring to a boil, and add the drained vegetables. Simmer the relish, uncovered, for 25 minutes.
Stir together the cornstarch and water, and pour it into the relish, stirring to disperse it. Cook for 5 more minutes. Pack the zucchini relish into hot, sterilized jars, wipe the rims with a hot, wet cloth, and seal with hot, sterilized snap lids and rings. Process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes instructions in the zucchini salsa post.
Crustless Zucchini Pie and Zucchini Fritters. Summer Herb Vinaigrette and Zucchini Salad. This dish is a festive recipe from the Basque country in France, often served at country fairs, but equally enjoyed at family dinners.
Come join me for a little armchair traveling to the beautiful Basque Country in the southwest corner of France — a rich agricultural area with a unique culture, history, and language. What a picturesque area of France! Storybook villages of red-timbered white houses nestle amidst rolling hills dotted with farmyards, sheep, and cows.
Driving through the winding roads of this lush agricultural countryside provided a continuous slide-show of beautiful rural scenes revealed around each bend. Strings of the pepper are on sale in shops and are hung everywhere on the sides of buildings to dry. The town is charming with its red and white buildings, friendly people, and the Espelette peppers everywhere.
The Espelette pepper has a unique rich fruity flavour with a mild to medium kick of heat. I found that using ground turkey thigh meat was a very good substitute. In addition to being served in homes, this traditional dish is often served at fairs and markets in the Basque Country. Basque cuisine is considered some of the best in the world, and its beauty is in the simplicity of its dishes and the freshness and stunning quality of its ingredients.
Very few spices and herbs are used in Basque dishes, yet the flavour is rich and complex. I took a couple cooking courses in San Sebastian in the Spanish part of the Basque , and was awestruck by how fantastic the food tasted with little more than garlic, olive oil, parsley, and salt being used to flavour it. In the town of Espelette, the Axoa is usually made of ground veal.
However in other Basque towns the veal is diced. I spent last week at Lake Okanagan in the south of British Columbia with my mom and four sisters. It was a glorious week of reconnecting and relaxing. Most of our meals were spent on the deck of our rented house overlooking the lake. Since this Basque meal tastes even better on the second day, you can easily make it up ahead to serve to guests, or to speed up week night meals especially with school starting again soon , or even to take along camping.
Enjoy it with boiled or steamed potatoes, or crusty bread for dipping into the flavourful juices. Heat 2 tablespoons 30ml of the olive oil in a dutch oven or large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onion, garlic, and peppers, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring often.
Add the diced or ground meat and cook, stirring often, until it is no longer pink. Use a wooden spoon to break up any large chunks if you are using ground meat. Remove the lid and turn the heat to medium. Boil the stew, uncovered, to reduce the liquid until there is just a thin layer of it left in the bottom of the pan.

Swedish Meatballs with Cream Gravy. The Best Ever Homemade Meatloaf. Chase away the summer heat with a Porto Tonic cocktail. We only had a week in that beautiful country, but what a week it was! We crossed the border from Spain into the little town of Alcoutim. Raymond wanted to get onto the zipline that goes across the river from Spain into Portugal, crossing a country border and a time zone, but it ended up being a bust. It was a hot and sleepy day. The little booth at the river was open but nobody ever showed up.
We had a lovely lunch there anyway. It feels sleepy and ancient, a place where time has stood still. The town draws you in and beckons you to stay a little longer. We loved this city with its beautiful tiled buildings, steep hills, and gritty port-city vibe — colourful, feisty, and a little edgy. Barrels of port wine used to be brought down the river from the Douro Valley wineries in Rabelo boats , to age in the port wine lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia, just across the river from Porto, before being shipped abroad.
Rowling spent a year in Portugal teaching and writing. There are many variations, but this one had two slices of bread sandwiching an astonishing stack of layers: The whole thing is draped in cheese slices, topped with an egg yolk, then drenched in a hot, spicy tomato sauce and served with fries!
After leaving Porto, we traveled into the interior of Portugal to spend three nights in the famous wine-growing region, the Douro Valley. I watched him stir together this delicious concoction. I must admit I looked forward to one of these refreshing cocktails every evening to sip on after a grueling day of sightseeing, wine tasting, and eating amazing food in this stunning region of Portugal.
White port is not always easy to find outside of Portugal, unless you have access to a specialty liquor store. Just use a strip of orange peel instead of lemon peel. I tried it and I agree: You can slap the mint leaves as Patrick does, or just twist them together to bruise them a bit the lazy way, like I do. Patrick mixed the Porto Tonic in a 1 to 5 ratio of port to tonic water.
This made a very light, refreshing drink, perfect for a hot day. In my research for this cocktail I found a wide range of port to tonic ratios being used; a 1: Some recipes use a 1: This just goes to show that you can mix the drink to your taste. You can make it with a ratio of 1: Pour the tonic carefully into the glass over the back of a teaspoon, to keep it from losing its bubbles and carbonation. Twist the lemon peel strip to release some of the oils from the peel, then rub the peel around the rim of the glass to add a lemon flavour when drinking.
Push the peel down into the ice. Twist the two mint leaves together to release some of the mint flavour. Push the leaves down into the drink. Cold Brewed Iced Coffee. Sauteed Pears with a luscious chocolate ganache sauce — this is a dessert to impress, stunning in its simplicity. Only 5 ingredients are needed to make this fantastic fruit dessert. Thanks to California Pears for sponsoring this post so I could share this lovely pear recipe with you and tell you about one of my favourite summer fruits.
The sun is beating down, filtering the world into a hazy silver hologram. In the distance, grasshoppers chirp their never-ending song and a cow moos lazily. Oh, to be seven again, when the summer stretched ahead of us forever and my sisters and I lived outdoors from dawn til dusk. In addition to apples, our small farm near Chilliwack, B. That pear tree was my favourite — producing those luscious, juicy, golden fruits.
In late summer my mother would dry bushels of them, laying rows of aromatic pear halves out on screens set on sawhorses to dry in the sun. Here in northern Alberta, we can only grow a few prairie-hardy varieties of pears, which sporadically produce fruits that are more like rocks than real fruit. They make a good juice if you simmer them for hours, but as for biting into a beautiful ripe pear with that honeyed nectar dripping down our chins — we have to look southward.
Luckily for us, the sweet, buttery Bartlett pears from California are just coming in to season. California pears help extend our North American pear season so we can enjoy the fruits earlier and for longer. I love that California pears are grown on about 60 small family farms which are leaders in pest control, fertilizer reduction, and sustainability. You know you are getting a superior fruit grown as naturally as possible.
Look for the California Bartletts in your local supermarkets. I found these luscious beauties in the organics section in my grocery store. Pears are hand-picked when immature and the fruit ripens over subsequent weeks.
So buy them green, and ripen them in a bowl on the counter for four to six days until they are golden. They should be relatively firm, but give a little when pressed gently. Once Bartlett pears are golden and ripe they should be refrigerated to preserve their ripeness, and eaten within 3 to 5 days. I love that California pears contain antioxidants and are a good source of fibre, and a source of vitamin C, potassium, and folic acid. Pears are in the top 10 fruits for fibre content, containing a mix of both soluble and insoluble fibre, with a total of 6 grams of fibre in a single pear.
Plus, one pear is only about calories! Pears are the ideal healthy summer snack. Sie weist besondere Weichheit und Zartheit auf.
