Mmmmm more vegetables smothered in butter. Now if it was the special occasion of a roommate birthday dinner, I definitely would not something everything in butter. HOWEVER, usually when you are serving food to a crown then chances are THEY are going to do something like smear margarine all over it anyway, so you might as well forget the calories (you’re going to eat cake anyway) and make everything actually taste good! A bit of flavoured unsalted butter goes a lot further then the 1 tbsp per serving of margarine that everyone is going to dump on anyway!

PB + J with Crispy Ham and Cheese Sandwich

For anyone who doesn’t know the Halifax Seaport Farmer’s Market has sponsored a recipe challenge for the Halifax Food Bloggers. Naturally, I loved the idea of a cooking challenge based on a limited supplier and ingredient base, and also a opportunity to make myself get over to the Seaport Market. For those of you who don’t know I work full time at a farmer’s market on “the darkside” and as a result I never ever make it to the Seaport.

I have to admit that the time I’ve been spending in my own kitchen has taken a back burner recently. I haven’t been cooking as much as I usually do, and the things I have been cooking, haven’t been documented clearly enough to make it on here. This is a pizza I’ve been thinking about for a while, but only got motivated to whip up last week.

After talking with another #hfxfb (Halifax Food Blogger) today it is reassuring to know that I am not the only one who has many half written posts that are delayed with their appearance into social media. I guess it makes sense though knowing we all eat and all probably cook more delicious things then we could ever want to post (I know I do). This dish was cooked very shortly after the fishing adventure post but as you can see has taken forever to make it’s appearance. It is super easy to make, and cooking anything “en papillote” is beyond simple.

Tatsoi

Tatsoi or Tat soi has popped up at the Alderney Market for the past two weeks, and with returning vendors it’s a sure sign that the worst is over and that spring is (finally) here! This is the first year I really made an effort to branch out into vegetables like Tatsoi and Swiss Chard, always in the past being happy with spinach, beet greens and fiddleheads.
