what the hake?

My Love recently went to our local fisherman’s co-op and brought home a new-to-us kind of fish–hake. It was fresh and reasonably priced. If silver hake is new to you, as well, it is described as “a close relative of the cod” by thisfish.info. Because I’d never cooked this particular fish before, I was unsure…… Continue reading what the hake?

lobster leftovers…no really

Lobster leftovers.  Akin to bacon leftovers.  Or cheesecake. As mentioned before (here and here), we like to cook more than we need for a meal.  That’s the only way we have leftovers for rolls or sandwiches, and chowder. I believe I may need to try one of those delicious pasta recipes, as well. On the menu…… Continue reading lobster leftovers…no really

soup’s on ~ chowdah

Since we began traveling to the east coast, we have been on a quest for the best cup of seafood chowder.  There have been many tasty samples along the way, but I think our favourite, as yet, has been the offering from the Water-Prince Corner Shop in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.  I believe we first heard…… Continue reading soup’s on ~ chowdah

In case…… Continue reading springtime means fiddleheads

gotta see a man about a lobster

It’s spring lobster season here on the east coast.  My Love’s favourite time of year.  He’s heading down to the harbour to buy a few beauties right off the fishing boat.  We’ll enjoy a lobster dinner tonight with some friends, and probably lobster rolls, or sandwiches tomorrow to share, as well. Lobster has a way…… Continue reading gotta see a man about a lobster

cold days and comfort food

Following a few lovely days, we were faced with a cold and dreary one.  It could mean only one thing…comfort food.  Several of my kids’ favourite meals are comfort foods:  meatloaf, shepherd’s pie, chicken pot pie.  In fact, a couple of them would even choose this type of dinner for their special birthday meal.  I…… Continue reading cold days and comfort food

mexican night

Do you recall (the value of friendship post) that my friend taught me the inside scoop on making authentic tacos?  Well, I finally got around to making them.  I followed the directions she gave me as best as I could remember, but the tortillas were not as soft as hers, nor as perfectly round.  I guess I…… Continue reading mexican night
