Cheesy Brunch Bake

Cheesy Brunch Bake | My Edible Journey

Strictly speaking, this is not a post from a cookbook. But it does come from a recipe by a cookbook author, which is close enough. And it’s delicious. Really delicious. And perfect to take to a brunch. Continue reading

Kale with Chorizo and Almonds

I did it.

I said that I’d start using recipes from the modestly large collection of cookbooks that I have, and I’ve done it. I’m quite chuffed, actually. And it was tasty, too!

Grilled Zucchini with Spicy Salt


I love having interesting spices/blends in my cupboard. Za’atar is one that I use often on grilled chicken, and pita chips. I always have seasoning blends on hand for rubbing on meats for barbecuing or sprinkling on potatoes to give them some oomph. Adding a little kick to some basic salt seemed like a natural addition to my pantry. Popcorn will never be the same. Continue reading

Insta-recipe. Onion Sage Marinade


I got pork chops out of the freezer the other day. I’m not a huge pork chop fan, so when I cook them I always doctor them up. Spice rubs are good. And marinades are great.

If you browse my Instagram, you’ll see some pics of the herbs that I’m growing on our new deck (there are pics of that too). The neglected sage was brought up to sit near the kitchen door and has been beckoning me to use it. So I agreed & grabbed a fistful of leaves (plus a little of my sprouting parsley & some thyme).

Turkey Leek Turnovers

Sometimes I don’t have a recipe, or beautifully edited photos. And sometimes I just don’t have it in me to do all that a “proper” blog post requires. These savoury turkey turnovers are my first attempt at this new way. Enjoy!

Enjoy!

Fleisch Perishky – Mennonite Meat Buns

Fleisch Perishky | My Edible JourneyA new heritage

20 years ago, my soon to be husband and I found ourselves walking through the doors of a new (to us) church. Well, actually we walked through the doors of a local public school where this church met at the time. What we knew about Mennonites couldn’t fill a bonnet. Having been through St. Jacobs, where many Old Order Mennonites live, we didn’t know that not all Mennonites live the horse and buggy life. We soon learned.
