Delicious Potatoes with Sour Cream and a Giveaway

I enjoy cooking outdoors during the summer because it is fun and allows me to cook leisurely while enjoying the fresh air, sunshine and green space. I cook on the barbecue, and grill a lot of meat, fish, vegetables and fruits. Most of our favourite dishes on the barbecue are savoury. Usually while barbecuing meat, I also put in potatoes wrapped in foil, garlic, onions and peppers. This twist on preparing twice baked potatoes with Gay Lea sour cream is fast and makes a barbecue meal complete.

East is Easy Vietnamese Inspired Savoury and Sweet

I enjoy making a variety of dishes from around the world to keep our meals fun and interesting. I find it is always fun for my family and I, to travel to different parts of the world with different cuisines and explore food from the comfort of our home. This weekend I decided to make rice paper rolls, which I haven't made for a long time. These filling rolls can be served as a snack or a meal. Along with these Vietnamese Spring Roll Wrappers, I served a delicious cassava cake

Dishes Inspired by the Upcoming Chinese New Year

恭喜发财 (Kung Hei Fat Choy) to everyone celebrating the upcoming Chinese New Year. I find the Chinese New Year zodiac to be interesting and according to it, this year is the Year of the Horse. When I checked the zodiac, I am a rooster. I admittedly believe somethings that are said for this sign is true to me, such as being a practical thinker, observant, paying attention to detail. I did check out the birth year of my family members and found some of the personality traits to be true to them.

Gay Lea’s Nordica Cottage Cheese is a healthy ingredient for a multitude of foods from smoothies, to cooking, to baking. Nordica Cottage Cheese can be used as a supplement ingredient that provides a low in fat, high in protein alternative. I enjoy using cottage cheese in a variety of dishes such as in desserts, lasagna and other pasta dishes. I made our favourite savoury snack using cottage cheese and spinach wrapped in phyllo pastry that we enjoy during teatime.

Savoury English muffins

First "savoury" English muffins in Canada from Oakrun Farm Bakery.  I tasted the delicious three new flavours of the Oakrun Farm Bakery savoury English muffins; Jalapeño salsa, Toasted onion & smoked black pepper, and Sun dried tomato basil.  These savoury muffins are not for breakfast only.  The versatility of these flavours make the muffins to be served for lunch, dinner or for snacks.  

Each package of the muffins come in a pack of six muffins.  The muffins are flavourful, low in sodium, fat and saturated fat.  The muffins are vegetarian and certified kosher.  

These muffins are available at Metro, Food Basics, Longos, Loblaw Superstores, Loblaw, highland Farms, Zehrs, YIG, Valumart and Fortino stores.  

Oakrun English muffins

Toast the savoury English muffins, then apply the butter.  Serve with gyros, avocado, cucumber, tomato, onion and sauce.

Focaccia bread

Here is a recipe I made with Club House Recipe mix: Herbes de Provence Roasted Chicken.  This Focaccia Bread recipe is adapted from the site.

2 cups of flour
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp yeast *
1/2 packet of Club House Herbes de Provence Roasted Chicken Flavourful recipe mix
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp olive or avocado oil
1 cup water

* If using dry yeast then froth it for about 5 to 10 minutes with sugar and 1/4 cup of warm water before adding it to the flour.  
If using instant yeast just add it to the flour.

Mix the flour, sugar, yeast and 1/2 packet of the recipe mix except for a tsp.  Mix the 1 tbsp vegetable oil and water, then add it to the flour mixture.  Knead the dough to make a smooth elastic dough.  Lightly oil a bowl, place the dough in the bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let it rise in a warm place for about 20 minutes.  The dough will almost double in size after 20 minutes.  
Place the dough in a square 8" x 8" oiled glass baking dish.  Brush the olive oil and sprinkle the 1 tsp of recipe mix, which was saved. 
Bake in a 425F preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes and let it cool before slicing.  This bread can be used for sandwiches, bruschetta, croutons etc.  
I enjoy making delicious meals with Club House products.  Enter to win a prize pack from Club House and a $50 gift card on my site for Canadians until October 12th.
