Homemade Canadian Donair

Homemade Canadian Donair

These days simple do-able recipes with a high pay off have been my mainstay. Do Homemade Canadian Donair qualify? I think so. And while these sandwiches might look restaurant quality (and the idea DID come from one, Occo Kitchen & Bar, I saw on Diner’s, Drive-Ins & Dives and here’s the video) these lovely Canadian versions of the Gyro are much easier than you’d guess,. especially if you view it as a mostly a “make ahead” meal. Gotta love that!

Classic Crazy Broccoli Salad

Classic Crazy Broccoli Salad

I must be getting old and decrepit (better than the alternative, as they say!) and for sure, I find my memory slipping a bit here and there. (What did I come into this room for is just the beginning, lol!) After I made this Classic Crazy Broccoli Salad I remembered I already have another version here on my site. That one is a lighter no Mayo version. So that’s why I’m calling this one “Classic.” (And it really is!)

Game Day Brisket Chili

Game Day Brisket Chili

This is the Chili you want when you want a huge pot o’ chili. When you want to serve a crowd of adults who love spice and love chili, maybe for an event. And even though this is named Game Day Brisket Chili, you don’t have to reserve this big pot of seriously spicy, meaty chili only for a Game Day (although this will shine at a Superbowl party or Tailgate event) and I actually have other barbecue type options for the meat you can sub in for the Brisket.

Potato Corn Chowder Instant Pot or Not

Potato Corn Chowder Instant Pot or Not

This year I was gifted some sweet corn, freshly picked the night before. First of all, there’s something magical about fresh sweet corn, but to think of it being picked, on a balmy summer night by the light of the moon. All of a sudden it seemed even more magical! Some of my Sweet Corn went to my Instant Pot Sweet Corn (love love love no pots of boiling water and the IP cooks corn so beautifully) and the rest, well it went into this Potato Corn Chowder Instant Pot or Not.
