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!

(Click on the tag “Steakhouse” at the bottom of this post to see some of them.) Here’s another, a copycat version of Longhorn Steakhouse’s Longhorn Grilled Chicken Strawberry Salad.

Mediterranean Salmon Salad

Mediterranean Salmon Salad

Our summer has gone from cold, cool and rainy to hot, humid and rainy in a snap of the fingers! I don’t know about you but I just go limp when it’s too hot and humid. I don’t want to do anything, I don’t want to eat and I sure as heck don’t want to cook. And then when I do get hungry? I make bad choices. My solution? Make a great big ol’ salad and top it off with a quick & easy protein and a fabulous dressing. And so here’s my Mediterranean Salmon Salad.
