Turkey Lettuce Wraps

You may have already guessed this, but it’s pretty rare that I cook the same thing twice, especially when it comes to weeknight dinners.

Faux Fried Chicken + Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles

January 19, 2012 Chicken & Turkey

It’s been well documented that I love awards shows over here on Planet Byn, and that I consider the Golden Globes to be the Superbowl of award season.

Chicken Enchiladas & Spanish Rice

January 5, 2012 Chicken & Turkey

The last time I made enchiladas must have been about eight years ago. I was trying to re-create what I was frequently eating at Mexican chain restaurants near my office, and the version I came up with (pieced together from a few recipes on was okay, but I remember it being very messy and time […]

Happy 2012 all! I love January, because even though I don’t believe in New Years resolutions, I love the re-set that comes with the beginning of the year.

I’m a little bit embarrassed to admit this, but after that episode of Top Chef Canada a few weeks ago, I made a special trip to Loblaws. Yes, I was totally brainwashed Since I have a Metro right across the street, as well as in the same mall as my gym, I don’t really do […]

March 23, 2011 Chicken & Turkey

Before I get into posting about the gluttony that took place last weekend at the blog-iversary party, here’s a quick post about some very versatile shredded chicken.

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Wedges & Turkey Burgers

February 15, 2010 Chicken & Turkey

Do you have certain dishes that you make so regularly, you just assume everyone else eats them all the time too? That’s how I ended up in Lydia & Andrew’s kitchen last summer teaching them how to make Sweet Pototo Wedges.  Lydia claimed that she couldn’t make them. Um, huh?  Scrub, slice, toss, bake! That’s it! But […]
