Spring Pea Puree

Spring Pea Puree

Last week, I posted a recipe for Bratwurst Bangers with Onion Gravy (Bangers & Mash) and with it, I served this Spring Pea Puree. The puree was so delish, that I thought they would make a wonderful side for a number of things, and they’d be a fabulous side for a Spring or Easter dinner.

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!

Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

Sometimes I think a bell pepper can be stuffed with just about anything but I gotta tell you these easy Southwestern Stuffed Peppers are really a standout. They have the fun flavor of tacos but are fresher, lighter, and lower carb, and can I just say, stuffed with mostly pantry ingredients? And cheese. And ground beef, chicken or turkey (or just go vegetarian.) And then, well, more cheese.
