Butter Tarts were my father’s favourite dessert so I have seen and even tasted various versions over the years. They are gooey, decadent and a real Canadian treat. I have seen thin and thick crusted versions, made with corn syrup or maple, ones with pecans and tarts just loaded with […]
These crispy chicken strips do not need a bath in a seasoned marinade of some sort, whether it’s buttermilk, milk and eggs, or even pickle juice. No it’s so simple, I just cut strips of chicken from boneless, skinless breasts, dunk them in the Epicure Crispy Crunchy breading and place […]

I made him a dish that I now reserve for only very special occasions – Chicken Paprikas.
