But most of all, get ready...do all the slicing and whisking before you even turn on the burner and you’ll get a gold medal in the fast and furious sport of stir-frying. More

Easy Vegetable Fried Rice Recipe

Fried rice is the yin and yang of Chinese cooking – flexible AND firm. On the one hand you’re free to improvise – feel like adding some broccoli or chicken? Go right ahead. On the other hand there is a science to achieving the perfect fried rice, a rule we always adhere to: cold rice. When stir-fried, warm rice will result in a mushy mountain, whereas hardened, day-old grains will remain separated. Must be an ancient Chinese secret, but this one- dish meal is successfully laid back and regimented all at once. More

Vietnamese Vegetable and Tofu Pho Soup

Before this recipe, I suffered from pho phobia. Not only did I say it wrong (it`s pronounced "fah," not "foe"), but I also couldn`t fathom how we`d bring Vietnam`s national dish into our kitchens, how we`d do justice to this incredibly aromatic, flavorful and restorative treasure. Well, good thing I`ve got the Pho Queen (better than being the "Pho King"... say it fast and you`ll know what I mean) on my side. After much research, spooning and slurping, Lisa has done it, with vegetables, tofu and rice noodles, all in an ambrosial broth infused with garlic, ginger, coriander, cinnamon and anise. Nothing to fear here - this easy-to-make soup is pho-freakin`-nominal. More

She wowed me even more with the addition of her spicy wasabi dip, but, can she, like Julie-san, karate chop the cap off a beer bottle while blindfolded and standing on one foot? I think not.  More

Thanksgiving with a Twist - Apple Pumpkin Pie

What are we thankful for? We’re Canadians (yes, along with Drake, Dion and Don Cherry) and we get to dig into Thanksgiving treats earlier than our friends south of the border! While turkey, stuffing and sweet potatoes always have a place at our table, we remain super stoked for the main event…yes, pumpkin pie.

Like the relative who asks the awkward questions (“What’s happening with your hair?”), Canadian Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without a drool-worthy, rich and creamy pumpkin pie. So, do we have the secret to making sure your Thanksgiving feast is legendary? Why yes, we do. It’s Carnation® Evaporated Milk.

Yes, you read that right. Not only does Carnation Evaporated Milk make our pumpkin pies drool-worthy, but this century-old ingredient also elevates everything from savoury soups and casseroles to fantastic fudge and bars.

Ok, so we were challenged by Carnation to add our very own twist to pumpkin pie. Lisa guffawed when I suggested putting bacon in it. Then I suggested a popcorn topping. Naturally (and thankfully), she ignored me. Seems she didn’t want my help there so I stepped back and, armed her with Carnation Evaporated Milk, let her have at it.

Let me tell you, Lisa exceeded any hope/dream I could have for a delicious, clever and creative addition to the Thanksgiving table. This Apple Pumpkin Pie is a collision between two classic desserts, whereby a flaky crust is lined with perfectly caramelized apples, topped with a super creamy ‘n dreamy (thanks Carnation!) pumpkin pie filling and finished with a sweet, buttery crumble. Yes, Lisa has created something that all our family and friends will be thankful for!
