Greek Souvlaki in a Pita

This is a little taste of summer right in the middle of our Canadian Winter! Admittedly, this winter has so far, been very mild but I was craving a light and healthy summer-type meal and this fit the bill perfectly! You can make the souvlaki ahead of time, and toss these together in minutes at […]

This week the tomatoes in my garden went crazy! Currently, I have eight of them sitting out on my deck, several ready to be picked in the garden and another half dozen in the fridge! All of these from only 3 little plants. I decided that today, tomato recipes were just the sensible thing to […]

Shrimp and Chicken Fettucini Alfredo

Nothing could be creamier, or easier than a simple Alfredo Sauce. I added both shrimp and chicken to mine this time as that’s what I had on hand, but you could also leave the meat out to suit a vegetarian palette. This sauce takes mere minutes to prepare and it absolutely divine – I won’t […]

Middle Eastern Apricot and Date Chicken

Many of us (myself included) are trying to eat healthier meals in an effort to shed a couple of extra pounds. That seems like a common proposition at this time of the year, especially considering the amount of “no-no’s” we eat during the holidays.

Delicious, fresh and summery – this recipe was invented after a reader asked if I did much Asian cooking…I LOVE to make up new recipes, so I based this on a satay sauce recipe and added to it to make it perfect.

Jean Pare’ Saves the Day!

I really do love Jean Pare’s cookbooks. They are the epitome of Canadian cooking, and her no-fuss approach¬† fits right in in the Cat Can Kitchen. I am constantly scouring garage sales for these treasured books (by now I’m sure I have at least 20 from her series.) My latest find “One Dish Meals” is […]
