Duck prosciutto

Prosciutto… Delicious, dry-cured pork that is thinly sliced and usually served uncooked.

A long time indeed, and you need the right facilities […]

A couple of project updates

Today is the last day of June, which marks the 6 month point of my 365 days project. Each month I compile a collage for your viewing pleasure. Also I think collages are fun but I can never think of anything else to apply them to. Here you go. The next “project” update is bacon. […]

Congratulations, it’s a bacon.

I have been waiting my whole life for this moment. The moment after all the waiting, all the planning. All the apprehensive thoughts of whether I had made the right choice. Was I ready for this? Am I ready for this? Am I ready for…my first bacon? Now that I can finally hold it, I […]

Roast elk with blueberry sauce

In the last couple of years, I’ve been thinking a lot about food. Especially, the location of my food.

(Please note I have no affiliation with these […]

Peameal bacon breakfast sliders

Brunch. You probably haven’t heard of it. But it’s kind of a big deal. When it comes to brunch in the Soph n’ Stuff household, we don’t mess around. That is, in the figurative sense we don’t mess around. In the literal sense, things do sometimes get messy. I used to dislike peameal bacon (aka […]

French beef dip sandwiches

For Christmas last year, my family did something a little different. My Aunts served up not only a lovely turkey dinner with all the fixins, they served a lovely Prime Rib roast with yorkshire puddings and all the fixins. We ate – oh did we ever eat. The Prime Rib was succulent, juicy and perfectly […]

I’ll give you something that’ll stick to your ribs. Ribs!

Ahhh, summer is almost upon us, and it is finally time to scorch and skewer our meats. Time to have two salads with dinner. Time to eat outdoors and break out the iced tea. Time for beer, time for fun, and time for sun. Living in a downtown Toronto condo of about 4.5 square feet, I […]
