Whenever I have an upset stomach, I make this dish. It’s easy to make, as all ingredients are boiled and then tossed together.
Chicken liver is not a favorite item on the menu in Calgary. Maybe it’s because people feel internal organs – such as liver, heart, kidney – are somewhat disgusting. Well, I disagree – some can be very tasty, and although you may not want to make them a permanent staple in your diet (high in cholesterol), you may still want to enjoy them every now and then to diversify your menu.
I made another quiche, but there’s a trick to it: I used Saba to cook the veggies. And it was simply delicious. I find quiches quick to prepare if you have some frozen dough. Saba is a syrup from grapes that is thick and sweet; it works really well with the veggies I used for this quiche (onion, mushrooms and bell peppers).
If you already have the crust, making a quiche is a piece of cake. You can either buy a pie shell or you can make your own pastry (pretty easy, just follow the instructions on any lard package) and freeze it. In the end, if you’re not too fussy about it, you can just make the quiche without the crust.
Apple omelette is so easy to make! It’s good warm or cold, simple or with icecream or jam. You’ll need 4 apples, 4 tbsp white flour, 4 eggs, cinnamon, some butter and around 1 cup of milk. Optional: rum, raisins, vanilla essence.

Organic, free range, naturally raised… New categories for consumers concerned with genetically modified foods, growth hormones and antibiotics in their meat. I confess to getting a bit lost here. So, here’s a list of meat stores in Calgary and the labels they claim for their meat. It’s a list in progress, so feel free to suggest stores I’ve missed and to check it again and again over time…
Quick and easy: deviled eggs with pickles. You’ll need: eggs, olive oil, paprika, salt, pepper, basil, mustard, parsley, pickles.
Creme brulee is not as complicated as it seems. In fact, it only takes some 20 minutes to prepare everything (and some 40 minutes in the oven). No need to worry about complicated bain marie/ water bath, here’s the quick version. You’ll need 1 l milk, 8 eggs, one and a half cup of sugar, some vanilla essence and lemon zest.
I found this nice video depicting the process step by step. Although the instructions are not in English, it’s quite good in terms of finding out what you’re supposed to expect when making this delicious dessert.
