Mini Beef & Guinness Pie

When Danielle and I went to London, we ate the most delicious savoury pot pies on our first pub night there and I’ve been waning to make my own at home ever since. I finally did it last week, due to the combined forces of Pi Day (3.14….get it???) and St. Patrick’s Day. My go-to […]

Burst Tomato & Corn Galette

September 12, 2016 Quiche & Savory Tarts

Once again another summer has gone by on my blog without a savoury recipe post. It’s been all boozy cocktails and birthday cakes up in here. It’s true, my will to cook is zapped by 40° days, and there are a lot of snack dinners going on, but I did make a couple great things […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Lemon & Black Pepper Quiche

May 11, 2014 Baked Sunday Mornings
Lemon & Black Pepper Quiche

I usually love quiche; buttery, flaky crust, rich custard, and delicious filling combinations. Unfortunately this quiche was not for me, and was borderline inedible. I re-read the recipe both during and after baking just to make sure I made it correctly. I did. It’s gross. My Mom and I ate this for lunch today and […]

Roasted Butternut Squash & Mushroom Pie with Cheddar Pastry {Gastropost Mission #78}

Roasted Butternut Squash & Mushroom Pie

Mushroom BOOM! That was our challenge for this week, and I knew right away what I wanted to make. Smitten Kitchen’s Mushroom Bourguignon, which is both on her site and in her cookbook. It was warm, cozy, and filling, but just not really a looker. Since I had the day off on Remembrance Day, I […]

Attention, attention! Friends, you need to prepare yourselves. There was an extra special visitor here at Planet Byn last week! The very person who introduced me to food blogs – who unknowingly set this whole world in motion – came for a visit! That’s right, Danielle was here!

January 18, 2011 Quiche & Savory Tarts

In what seems to be a continuing theme of vegetables and cheese wrapped in pastry, here we have Spanakopita, which consists of a savory filling of spinach and feta, wrapped in phyllo dough. This is a greek speciality that you’ve no doubt had as an appetizer on the Danforth, but the filling is really easy to pull together.

Butternut Squash Galette

Updated with a new picture February 2, 2014 Yesterday I brought some leftover shortbread cookies into work, as they were taking up valuable real estate in my freezer. Seriously, most people just groaned and walked right by. Happy New Year! Time to detox! I feel like we’re bombarded with this message as soon as the […]

Roasted Tomato & Goat Cheese Tart

March 8, 2010 Quiche & Savory Tarts

Kristine and I take our awards shows very seriously. I’ve written before about the Superbowl of awards shows, the Golden Globes. The Oscars have all the prestige though, but they are just soooooo loooong, you have a lot of categories we don’t care about (Sound Mixing, Editing, Documentary Short Subject), and by this point in […]
