Mixed Grill


  The family can’t make up their mind? No problem, grill up a variety of stuff for them to sample.

Spin the Chicks

My first attempt at Vine video. Note to self, phone has to be held vertically.

Rotisserie Chicken


Since we bought our new Napoleon Grill, either we’ve been away, or I have been out covering events, so we haven’t had a chance to try out the wickedly heavy duty rotisserie that came with the beast. So today, before heading off to our kid’s ball game, I decided to spin up a couple of […]

Tikka skewers


On the weekend, Sandy made a massive Indian feast for visiting friends. My sole contribution was to grill the chicken for the Tikka Masala. Awesome.

Yesterday I posted an Instagram pic of a mound of dry rubbed wings, before they headed into the smoker. The almost finished result is above.

Bacon Wrapped Chicken and Peach Skewers


A week long camping trip with 3 children involves some pre-planning around food. ¬†Our kids like to help with the menu and the cooking and typically like to cook the same things every time we go. This year for our trip to Silent Lake Provincial Park, I decided to do some internet surfing before we […]

Cajun goodness


Guido fever has hit the FAB Whitby kitchen lately thanks to a couple of Guy Fieri’s books that were given to me recently. My jerk chicken alfredo is a fave around our house, so we just had to try Guy’s Cajun Chicken Alfredo. This is a serious keeper! Because I hate AC, we try to […]
