To get fish on the dinner table, think of using a pouch

The health benefits of eating fish two or three times a week are well-documented. So, as a mom of four kiddos, I’m always looking for creative ways to add fish into our weekly menu. I love Alaskan cod especially this time of year because it’s in season, it’s loaded with omegas and lean protein, and...

Chefs getting in on the buzz around cooking with cannabis

The first dish is ready to be served: jalapeno corn muffins with a dollop of maple butter. Next up, seabream ceviche, followed by a mushroom “cappuccino.” The dinner has all the makings of a fine-dining experience — but the star ingredient is not a common menu item. “I don’t try to hide the flavour of...

COOKING ON DEADLINE: Slow Cooker Barbecue Beer Beef Stew

Let’s just start by saying that the words beef, beer and barbecue in a recipe title don’t make my husband sad. When browning beef for a stew (whether you’re making it in a slow cooker, or a regular old pot or Dutch oven), it’s less important to get all the sides of the cubes of […]

Reisman: How to smooth out chocolate strawberries this Valentine’s Day

The Problem: There’s nothing more decadent than serving luscious chocolate-dipped strawberries for Valentine’s Day, but your attempt has ended in lumpy or burnt chocolate. Hardly romantic! The Hack: Get smooth, melted chocolate every time by following these simple steps: For every 1.5 oz (1/4 cup) of semi-sweet...

Kathleen Wynne joins chorus of women saying no to lady Doritos

Doritos for her: less crunchy, more quiet and small enough to fit in a purse. The very idea for a women’s version of Doritos might just be more disliked than the reality of an obnoxiously loud chip, and even Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne joined a chorus of those slamming Doritos for the concept. PepsiCo chief...

COOKING ON DEADLINE: Slow-Cooked Pork Roast

Slowly cooking a big hunk of tough, inexpensive meat isn’t just the best way to cook this cut of meat. It’s really the only way. Most tough cuts of meat come from the hardest working parts of the animal, and therefore have a lot of collagen. This collagen needs to be broken down and converted […]
