Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Brain Dip

What's a Halloween party without Brain Dip? I'll tell you... a sub-par Halloween party, that's what. This past weekend, we hosted our 7th Annual Halloween Extravaganza, and this dip was the star of the show. There's just something about Halloween that brings out the gore in everyone, and nothing is quite as satisfying as lopping some brain onto a cookie and indulging yourself. With that said, it makes it easier if said brain dip is the most delicious thing you've ever eaten!

Shout out to Slice & Dice for the recipe!

Moose Stew

I know Newfoundland isn't the only place in the world where people hunt and serve up moose. I also realize they were foreign to the Province once upon a time, and were brought here wayyyy back when. But that doesn't change the fact that it's a delicious, lean, meat that can be prepared in many delicious Newfoundland dishes. Now you may remember the moose recipe I posted a while back for Moose Burgers (my fav way to eat moose by far), but this recipe is up there too, Homemade Moose Stew!

Gourmet Garden - My New Best Friend

Nigella Express was one of my favourite cooking shows while it was on, aside from the fact that Nigella herself was nothing less than fabulous, she taught everyone shortcuts and other unique ways to speed the cooking process along. She created delicious and beautiful dishes with very little effort, in other words, she was everyone's idol! This product reminds me of something I would see on her show, the burst of flavour and freshness of herbs, without the nasty task of chopping them ;)

I bring to you Gourmet Gardens, a.k.a my (and your) new best friend.

Fall Squash Salad

I've never been big on salads. Sure, I enjoy the odd Caesar, and I do love Wendy's apple chicken pecan salad too, but I've never been the type to crave salads (unless we're talking cold plates here, but that's a whole different ballgame altogether!)

Either way, my opinion on salads changed yesterday when I cooked up a warm squash salad, something I literally dreamed up a few nights before. If you're anything like me and you don't enjoy cold salads on a cold day, this is the perfect salad for those cooler Autumn days. It actually felt like comfort food - a salad?! Yeah, I know right?! Weird! Needless to say, I will be making this over and over this Fall.
