Spaghetti Puttanesca with Halibut and Grilled Lemons

Have you ever wondered about the history of your favourite dishes and what kind of stories they might have behind them. I do. ALL THE TIME.

Kunstkitchen This is a recipe that incorporates foods that I really enjoy eating. Thanks for the story behind this too. Fascinating = food and amore!
Natalie Browne Thanks, Gloria! It's hard to have pasta without opening a bottle of wine, lol. I agree, though, puttanesca is a perfect wine and pasta meal

Marla Hi Natalie, Wow this gives a whole new meaning to plain salmon although I do love salmon. Sounds so tasty and I can only imagine how crunchy the pistachos makes the topping and how moist the salmon must be. Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays. Pinned

Julie This looks amazing Natalie! I love blueberries and lemon together and then there is my first love, bread!
Angie | Fiesta Friday Did you know I have 4 blueberry bushes in my backyard, and didn't get a single berry?! Freaking birds!! And I love, love blueberries! Thankfully there's a blueberry farm around here. The bread sounds great, Natalie. And that mint glaze, too 😋

Thai Coconut Curry Mussels

So, it turns out that my 5 year old really likes mussels, like, A LOT. This is a fairly new thing for her.

Natalie Browne Thanks, Liz!
Natalie Browne Haha! When I saw your post a couple weeks back, I had a hard time getting it out of my head, so a seafood feast seemed like the perfect opportunity to make some of my own. I've been very lucky to have kids that are big seafood (and, really, all food) eaters.

Gillespies Fine Spirits

Cocktail Making with Gillespies Fine Spirits

In the past few years craft breweries have been getting a lot of attention.

Natalie Browne I suppose it's not much different than blending flavours together when cooking, but I found it fascinating to watch and, ultimately, taste the creations.
Natalie Browne They really did make some fine cocktails at the tasting :) We've had a huge craft beer boom in the last few years, and it's still going strong. The growth of the distilleries is still a bit new for us, but as more and more people become aware of the amazing products being made so close to home, I think it'll only continue. That distillery tour sounds awesome!

Beef Crostini with Avocado Chimichurri

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the 2nd annual Avocado Showdown. Hosted by Avocados From Mexico, the event was meant to highlight the culinary versatility of avocados.

Natalie Browne Thanks so much. This is the second year the Avo Showdown has been in Vancouver, but I think they hold them in a few other cities, as well. SO much fun, and so cool to see the creative dishes that everyone comes up with.
My Dish is Bomb Oh my GOOD-ness!!! An avocado SHOWDOWN??? How did I not know about this!!? Love this appie and the combination of chewy beef + soft avo, nice thinking!
