Rhubarb Poppy Seed Dressing

I’m boldly going where no Planet Byn recipe has gone before today: a savoury rhubarb recipe. I tried to make a rhubarb chutney once and it was a disaster, so I’ve given other savoury rhubarb recipes the side eye ever since. Rhubarb barbecue sauce? No thanks. Raw rhubarb in a salsa? Nah. However, a rhubarb […]

Simple Stewed Rhubarb

Last week I got a text from my friend Nicole wishing me “Happy Rhubarb Season!”. She knows me so well! It is truly the most wonderful time of the year. I was in a momentary panic a few weeks ago looking through a Buzzfeed gallery on rhubarb recipes, thinking that I had reached the end […]

Pickle Close-up

I grew up watching my Mom make countless jars of strawberry jam and mustard pickles, but never really had any interest in canning myself.  Over the last few years, I’ve been making skillet jams that I can keep in the fridge, but recently I’ve been a bit jealous of my friends who are total canning […]

Our Gastropost Mission this week was Mex to the Max, which gave me the perfect excuse to remix my favourite mexican guilty pleasure.

I mean this in the best way possible: I am so sick of searching for this recipe on Jan’s blog! Every time I’ve made it this summer, I’ve looked it up on Family Bites and then thought to myself that I need to post it here. So finally, finally, here it is. When I make […]

Yesterday I saw a Christmas commercial for Pot of Gold. Attention Hershey Canada: Please let us all enjoy our Halloween candy in peace before you bombard us with holiday propaganda. And Pot of Gold is so gross you guys! At least it could have been a commercial for the Festive Special or something! Anyway, I’m […]

Mediterranean Layer Dip

  Watching the Emmys in a hotel room, alone, on a work trip, with gross room service is just no way to live. That was my reality last year, and it was just so sad. Thank goodness I was home this year, with my amigas, and many delicious snacks. There’s no better way to watch […]

Sundried Tomato Basil Pesto

May 30, 2012 Sauces, Dressings, Dips & Salsas

Homemade pesto with fresh basil is one of the simple foodie joys of summer, in my humble opinion. I’ve jumped the gun a little this year, because I found a huge bag of bright green, beautiful basil leaves at my grocery store last month. Still a little early for local basil, but this did the […]

Here’s the reason why I was celebrating Cuatro de Mayo last weekend instead of Cinco de Mayo. My friends Hsien & Katie threw their first dinner party at their house last Saturday; it was a potluck, and the theme was Italy. I’ve had a lot of experience throwing potlucks in my office, so I know that […]
