Turkey Leek Turnovers

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/a67/33126346/files/2014/12/img_7984.jpg
I’m experimenting with posting directly from my iPod. If this works, you can expect more posts that come from flashes of inspiration and life in general. I’m kind of excited. 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!

Late Autumn Recipe Roundup

While Thanksgiving is long past here in Canada already, it is just around the corner in the U.S. With my American readers in mind, and giving a nod to the creeping chill that is wrapping itself around folks in many areas, I’ve put together a compilation of a few recipes featuring seasonal foods that are abundant right now. 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.

Gluten Free Jalapeno Cheese Cornbread Muffins

Gluten Free Jalapeno Cheese Cornbread Muffins | My Edible Journey

Feeling Inspired

The sun shone yesterday and it was “warm” enough to go out in a light jacket.  Sure, it was only about 10C, but it was welcome.  There was warmth in the sun as it poured over my face!  We had a similar day this past weekend, and I took advantage of it to grill some steaks, which I  haven’t done since December.

The weather further inspired me to crave cornbread.  Well, the weather and a random comment, probably on Twitter.  Some days the product of my kitchen is also the product of my impulsiveness.  It’s good that I don’t have copious amounts of good chocolate and cream on hand very often.

Maple Fig Squares

Maple Fig Squares | My Edible JourneyThese squares excite me.

What?  I know, they don’t look exciting.  In fact, they look like a paler cousin of the date square.  And yeah, they are.  But they excite me because they’re full of possibility.  From the filling to the crust to the topping, they can be changed up in so many ways to make them completely different.

I was originally going to use a mix of dried figs and apricots in them, until I realized that my daughter had eaten the apricots.  But already I’m wondering about other fruits.  Like dried cherries!  Oh.my.gosh.  Can you imagine?  If you love cherries like I do, you’ll understand my excitement.

One of Those Days

The kids and I are having popcorn for lunch today.  We’re low on fresh veggies, which they usually have.  Oh how I long for the days when our garden and locally grown farmers market produce  feed us again.  We’ve been in the depths of winter for longer than any winter I can remember in recent history.  Another squall line just went through. This may be the coldest February on record in a long time.  Usually by now there has been at least a slight sneak peek at spring.  Not this year, where we have rejoiced at (very few) 2 and 3 degree Celsius days.

2013 – The Food That Was

The year that was - My Edible Journey

Well, that’s it then

My first January through December of blogging My Edible Journey.  There were some definite hits (wow, do you all love ham soup!)  And a few misses (so maybe I’m the only one who thinks that cabbage and kale pair well with honey and Feta).  And in between there have been seasons of incredible local bounty, delightful new tastes and a few surprises, good and… not as good.  There have been photos that I have quite loved, only to be panned by foodie link sites, and at least one I really didn’t like, but put up anyway and then had those same sites love them.  Go figure.

Chewy Nut Free Granola Bars

Chewy Nut Free Granola Bars |My Edible Journey

I’m not the sort of mom who has a variety of neatly cut up, ready to go fruits and veggies in tidily stacked and labelled containers in the fridge.  Ever.  I’m the mom who feeds my kids fruits and veggies at home, but who wants convenience when we’re getting ready to hit the road. Continue reading
