Super Thin Crust Pizza (Quesa-Pizza)

First, I want to say I can’t take credit for this idea. Recently I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube chef videos and I came across the funny/ talented You Suck At Cooking. When I want something ridiculous that also seconds as a tutorial for good food his channel is where I go. Exactly a week ago he posted a video called Tortilla Pizza, which I instantly wanted to try. I love tortillas and I love pizza, so combining the two was too incredible to pass up. This is my favourite food at the moment. Although it isn’t healthy, the idea of it makes my mouth water.

Below you’ll find my written instructions and at the bottom you’ll find his video tutorial. I suggest watching the video for the humour and visual instructions. All right, let’s get cooking!

Prep: 5 mins                Cook time: 10 mins               Total time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

Tortillas

Pizza Sauce (I used RAGÚ Original)

Mozzarella Cheese

Toppings of your Choice

**I did a plain cheese and a ground beef, sour cream, sweet corn, black bean pizza. Closest I could get to a quesadilla on a pizza. 🙂

Items you’ll need:

Oven

Knife

Cheese grater

Tinfoil

Baking Sheet

Instructions:

Turn oven to 350 F (176 C). Lay tinfoil on baking sheet. Put tortilla on tinfoil and spread sauce evenly on top. Shred and sprinkle cheese on top of sauce, add toppings, and then add another thin layer of cheese. Put in oven for 10 mins.

When done transfer to plate, cut into desired pieces and serve.

 

I Want Seconds – Shepard’s Pie Recipe

 

One of the popular dishes in my house is Shepard’s Pie. This dish is not only easy to make but leaves you wanting seconds (sometimes thirds) because it just is the perfect comfort food. Combining mashed potatoes, meats, and veggies – this meal has all that you need for a growing family or even a group get-together.

Prep: 1 hr                Cook time: 15-20 mins               Total time: 1 hr 15-20 mins

Ingredients:

6 Potatoes

1 lb ground beef (chicken or pork can be a substitute)

1 small white onion

1 can of peas

1 can of creamed corn

1 1/2 tsp black pepper

1 tbsp butter

1/2 cup milk

 

Items you’ll need:

Cooking pot

Frying pan

Peeler

Potato masher

Knife

Chopping board

Baking Dish

Measuring spoons/cups

Can opener

Oven

Instructions:

Mashed Potato Topping

Peel 6 potatoes, dice them into equal sized cubes, put them into a pot and fill until covered with water. Bring water to a boil and let simmer until tender enough to break apart with a fork with little pressure. Drain water, add 1 tbsp of butter and 1/2 milk to potatoes. Mash potatoes until smooth.

Meaty Middle

Chop small white onion and add to frying pan. Add oil or water to help onions cook. When onions are translucent (see-through) add 1 lb of ground beef (or meat of choice) and 1 1/2 tsp black pepper to frying pan. Cook until browned. Drain liquid from the meat and set aside.

IMG_20170209_173524

Put it all together now

Set oven to 350 F (176 C). While oven is heating up take your baking dish and line the bottom with your cooked meat/onion mixture. When bottom is evened out add half a can of creamed corn making sure to spread it evenly. Drain and add the can of peas before adding the rest of the cream corn on top. The cream corn acts like glue keeping the layers together. Finally add the mashed potato layer to the top, smoothing it out for a nice smooth finish.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins or until all layers are heated. Serve and enjoy.

Optional: Spread butter on the top of the pie and broil until top is golden brown.

 

 

 

Lemon Loaf

Decided I needed a distraction a few weekends back so I went a little bake crazy. I made two banana breads and two lemon loaves. I’ll just say Mr. Canuck and my co-workers were happy to get free food.

1 1/2 cups flour (white or brown)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup shortening

2 eggs

Grated rind of 1 lemon

Glaze:

Juice half a lemon and mix with 1/4 cup sugar.

Ginger BBQ Crock Pot Ribs (SUPER SIMPLE)

MEET

Do you like ribs? Do you like simple cooking? Well that’s awesome – so do I! That’s why I’m going to share with you my super simple Crock Pot Ginger BBQ Ribs. ^.^

Prep time: 10 mins                        Cook time: 6-8 hrs                When to Make:  ALL THE TIME!

Ingredients:

Two racks of ribs

1 can of Ginger ale

BBQ Sauce

Equipment needed:

Knife

Measuring Cup (1 cup  1/2 cup)

Crock Pot

Instructions:

Cut your ribs in to manageable sizes. I chose to cut them leaving four bones attached, but
it is your choice.

You will add the ribs to the crock pot. Pour 1 can of ginger ale into the crock-pot. If you IMG_20160108_074106have a 2 L bottle of ginger ale just use the measuring cup and measure 1 & 1/2 cups.

Take the BBQ sauce and add 1 & 1/2 cup (or to desired amount) to the crock pot. Make sure the ribs are covered.

Put lid on, set to low heat for 6-8 hrs.

These should be hard to pick up out of the crock pot, as they will be so tender the bone will fall out.

And there you have it – Ginger BBQ Crock Pot Ribs. 🙂

It doesn’t matter what you call it, Banana break or cake, one thing we can all agree on is that it’s absolutely delicious. I love banana bread because it is one of those foods that remind me of home.

The recipe my mother used was that her grandmother used and so today I am going to share it with you.

Sicilian Moose Roast (That’s right, a MOOSE roast)

picpasta

To Be Honest, this was my first time cooking moose. As I am originally from the big city of Toronto, I was never given such a meal changing ingredient as moose before. Since moving to Northern Canada, I can honestly say my palate has been challenged. With friends and family who hunt the wilds of Northern Canada, I have the pleasure of trying these new things. So, when I was handed a grocery bag full of moose meat I was lost with what to do with it. That was until I was told, “Cook it in tomato sauce, it takes the wild out of the meat”.

Tomato sauce… I thought; finding my mind jumping back to the years my dad cooked Sicilian roast beef at home. It was then I knew what I was going to make.

This Sicilian Moose Roast is an adaptation of my father’s recipe. It turned out to be incredibly delicious and the meat didn’t taste anything like moose. It was tender and flavorful, just the way a Sicilian roast is supposed to be. With that, I’ll leave you to the recipe. Enjoy!

Prep: 5-10 mins                Cook time: 1 hr 30 mins                Total time: 1 hr 40-45 mins

Ingredients:

1 can tomato paste

1 can diced tomatoes

1/2 tsp parsley

1/2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp basil

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp sea salt

2 bay leaves

2 tbs olive oil

1 cup diced onion (white)

2 cloves of minced garlic

1/2 cup water

1/2-1 pound moose roast or moose loin (can also be beef or pork)

Pasta (strands or noodles)

Items you’ll need:

Dutch oven

Knife

Spatula

Oven

Instructions:

Set oven to 350 F. In a Dutch oven place meat, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, spice mix, water, garlic and olive oil. Mix with spatula and make sure all meat is well covered by the sauce. Cover and place in over for 30 mins.P1020345

A 30 mins remove from oven and mix sauce. You should also flip the meat and recover it with the sauce. Place lid back onto the Dutch oven and put back into the oven for another 30 mins.

At that 30 mins mark you are to repeat the above instructions: stir, flip, cover. Place the Dutch oven back into the oven for another 30 mins.

This would be a good time to boil some water and cook your pasta.

Once the 30 mins are up, remove from oven and let sit for 5 mins. Put pasta on the plate, add sauce and meat. There you have it.

Makes: Depends on the meat. This recipe made 3-4 plates.
