Mystery Ingredient Wild Blueberry Pie

Rating: 5 stars 46
I came up with this tasty twist on a classic blueberry pie recipe when I was searching the spice cupboard for nutmeg. My family loved it so much that I made two more pies the next day! Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

Lobster Rolls

Rating: 4.5 stars 157
I grew up in Nova Scotia where seafood was cheap. My Mom and grandmothers had some pretty inventive ways of making lobster 'not-boring!' Now, lobster is a treat and costs a fortune. I've paid over ten dollars for one of these lobster rolls in Cape Cod and it wasn't half as good or half as big as the ones my Mom taught me to make. This is a wonderful summer (or winter) treat and makes a fancy luncheon to impress your friends. (And no, I don't eat the green stuff in the lobster!)

Crispy Ginger Beef

Rating: 4.5 stars 126
This recipe is so much better than take out! Serve it with homemade fried rice or plain rice. If you like spicy, just add more chili pepper flakes!

Garlic Prawns

Rating: 4.5 stars 126
This is a great easy prawn marinade, they are great on the BBQ, we put them out as appetizers but they can also be a main course. I've also sauteed them with the marinade and used the sauce with pasta or just lapped it up with French bread! ENJOY.

My Favorite Sesame Noodles

Rating: 4.5 stars 248
This recipe for sesame noodles is one I've created through trial and error. It combines green onions, peanut butter and sesame oil for a wonderfully complex flavour.

Sesame Jellyfish Salad

Rating: 5 stars 3
I learned to love sesame-flavoured jellyfish from having it at Chinese banquets growing up. Now I make this variation of jellyfish salad with chopped or grated veggies and a spicy sesame sauce. This makes a refreshing and delicious side dish or Chinese-style shared dish. Jellyfish is flavourless, but it is delightfully crunchy and lends itself to various flavour combinations. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Mom's Nova Scotia Seafood Chowder

Rating: 5 stars 76
Being from the Easy Coast, I've tried a lot of different chowders; however, my Mom's takes the cake. She makes a huge pot of this chowder every Christmas Eve and all of it is gone by Christmas night. Although it is not very healthy, it is an awesome treat once in awhile for any of us that love seafood! I normally throw in a dash of garlic and onion powder. Enjoy!
