It’s hard to pick the perfect potluck dish. You want something easy to prep, a dish that will feed a crowd, and something that’s easy to transport.
Don’t worry Mamas, we’ve got you! We’ve partnered with Alberta Turkey and have created the perfect pot luck dish: Turkey Buffalo Mac n Cheese. And the best part? EVERYTHING was made in an Instant Pot because we know you have zero time this time of year. By using the Instant Pot we’ve also cut out on all the dishes you have to do. This is literally a one pot meal!
Chances are that if you haven’t heard about the sous vide cooking method yet, you will start noticing it everywhere and watch it become a staple way of cooking at home within a couple of years.
The Mamas love local and we hate grocery shopping.
So, when we learned about truLocal at the Edmonton Home and Garden show, we were intrigued!
Upon further investigation we learned that the basic idea is that they source LOCAL meat and deliver it to your door. Yes, it is subscription based BUT you choose your frequency. You can skip boxes – even pause or cancel at any time – no strings!
It was a real treat getting the box and seeing exactly where the items came from in Alberta. For example these DELISH steaks from Fort MacLeod.
It’s Christmas Party Season! We love the holidays and all the opportunities it brings to be with our friends and family and that usually means sharing food together. Although we love attending all the parties we can, sometimes figuring out what dish to bring can be a daunting task especially as our to-do list grows and grows the closer we get to Christmas.
That is why we’re excited to partner with Alberta Turkey to bring you TWO easy, quick and delicious dishes you can enjoy at home or bring as a dish to share with your next party.
Super quick and delicious bruschetta recipe using leftover or garden cherry tomatoes
I’m not sure whether it’s been the rain this year (there’s been little sunshine) or I just got lucky but I have a TONNE of cherry tomatoes in my back yard this year.
The girls and I roasted a big beautiful Alberta Turkey a few nights ago! We intentionally got a bigger bird than needed so that we all had plenty of yummy leftovers to take home- basically a #momwin. I decided to try a quick weeknight creation with our turkey leftovers and made a Canadian comfort food dish, poutine! Check out the recipe below…
I buy banana’s A LOT. They’re full of all the good vitamins and potassium and most importantly I don’t have to do anything to prepare them for kids snacks, they’re just there…waiting to be eaten. I love that fruit is an easy snack. Unfortunately, many bananas in my house go uneaten so we have lots of browning bananas hanging around the kitchen. This is where delicious banana bread comes in.
It’s one of the most wonderful times of the year! It’s SOUP SEASON!!!!!! Soups are great for cold days, can be frozen or made in big batches. We asked our contributors to give us their favourite, “tried and true” soup recipes and Kat from Tiny Campfire and Dionne from Refined Imperfection shared with us, their “go to’s.”
Cinco De Mayo Guacamole
Happy Cinco De Mayo!
It’s Cinco De Mayo and I’ve got Guacamole! How lovely Cinco De Mayo landed on a Saturday this year.
Did you know that Cinco De Mayo is the celebration of Mexico’s victory over the French all the way dating back to 1862? Modern day Cinco De Mayo in America also usually celebrates Mexican/American culture. I think as Albertan’s we are great at celebrating all cultures, so fiesta on!
This is actually a pretty basic guacamole recipe, I think having a good basic recipe is a great start and then you can add your own flare from there! (I sometimes add curry powder!)
- 2 avocados
- 1 lime
- 1 medium tomato
- 1/4 of a red onion
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- salt and pepper to taste
Let’s make guacamole:
- Cut open, pit and scoop out two avocados. Mash the avocado with a fork until smooth.
- Finely chop the red onion and tomato. I actually use a Tupperware chopper like this. It helps it get finely chopped up.
- Squeeze in juice of the lime. I like mine very lime-y so maybe start at half a lime first.
- Add garlic powder and salt and pepper to your taste.
- Enjoy and FIESTA!
