This week’s “relaxed” entertaining recipe is my brother-in-law’s recipe for Quick Clams on the Grill. I love making these, they are so simple and delicious and kind of unexpected for most people. Make sure you have really good crusty bread to soak up the butter, garlic and clam juices!
This week’s “relaxed” entertaining recipe is for Barbecue Poached Salmon with Basil Mayonnaise. Hopefully it’s warm enough where you live to break out the barbecue, if not you can pop this salmon in the oven. It’s an incredibly easy dish to throw together and it takes no time to cook, totally impressive with very little fuss – my [...]

Today’s question comes from Jenni Stock who asks: “I would like to have someone explain to me the difference between Belgian waffles and normal waffles… Please advise. For example, could a waffle recipe be used in either machine, Belgian or classic? Thank You So Much, Jenni”
This weeks “relaxed” entertaining recipe is for Asparagus Brunch Bread in honour of the first local asparagus (hopefully asparagus has arrived in your region). This is really somewhere between a quick bread and a pancake. It’s great as a main course with a salad or a few roasted potatoes, or slice it up and serve [...]

This week’s question comes to me from Catherine who writes: “This is a question for Christine @ The Foodie File. I am not sure if you have covered this topic before but I was wondering what would be the difference in using unbleached flour as opposed to the usual all-purpose flour? Does it make a [...]
Tequila is going to be my new summer beverage. While in Mexico I learned about and indulged in many new ways of enjoying this libation outside of the popper with lime and salt. I thought I’d share some tequila cocktails with my foodie-friends. Maybe you can have a few for Mothers Day this weekend!
In honor of my biblical fish experience on the beaches of Puerta Vallarta, my “relaxed” recipe for today is fish tacos. This picture is a version that I had in Mexico where the fish was fried. Very yummy, but this recipe is a lighter version

Some people were throwing them back into the ocean but others were collecting them to feast on later. There [...]
