Monday dinner at The Jette’s

It has been a couple weeks since we last sat down to dinner at the kitchen table. It is something we need do more often. Tonight we whipped up a fantastic meal literally in less than 30 minutes. Chris grilled steak (on the bbq outside in February in Canada…unreal!), and I made the sides…Mexican corn,…

Burgerrrrific!

Who said it’s too cold to fire up the grill in January in Canada?!! Clearly, the boy from Brooklyn didn’t get the memo because tonight he made his famous burgers for dinner. You may think I’m a big fan of his burgers because I’m his loving wife — but truth be told, this is one…

Fiery chili con carne

It’s cold in Burlington, Ontario, especially where we live as we’re not too far from Lake Ontario. We’re not complaining – we love the cold – so it’s really nice to cook and eat heartwarming tasty foods. Chili is a favorite of mine – especially if there are a lot of flavors going on with…

French onion soup The Jette way

Tonight we had a souper yummy supper (get it?!)…homemade french onion soup that was delicious and way healthier than the restaurant version. I started this creation yesterday morning at 7am by making the beef broth from scratch, which simmered on low heat for about 8 hours. I let it cool and refrigerated overnight. This morning,…

I fell in love and stopped blogging

Not a word of a lie. I met the man of my dreams while living in NYC. A Brooklyn boy, born and raised, who loves food just as much as me. We met in June 2013. My Brooklyn boy planned a romantic picnic date in Central Park, which was the best first date of my life….

Foodist – Book Review

After loads of business and personal travel, little sleep, plenty of hotel rooms with god awful beds and too much eating out, I decided I needed to do something to get myself back on track.  And let’s be frank, the number one motivation was indeed that my pants were tight – a little too tight….

For the love of oysters!

Last night I entered the point of no return through the very much appreciated introduction to the roasted oyster at the adorable Tipsy Parson in NYC. Talk about a tasty treat! Hints of garlic and parmesan with a slightly raw consistency of the oyster.  One of the greatest things I’ve eaten. Ever.

On the hunt for the BEST Bitterballen in Amsterdam

I may have died and gone to heaven. What is better than a deep fried Dutch meatball with a creamy center of goodness? Nothing.  Especially after a night of shenanigans, which included a bier festival, more beer and a glass of wine. Hmm. Ladies and gentleman, let me introduce you to the Bitterballen: A deep fried delicacy with…

Funny food art at Chelsea Market

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I love Chelsea Market in NYC.  One of the things I dig besides the great eats is the ever evolving art displayed featured within. The latest is Funny Food Art, which is adorable photography using food as its paint, if you will. Here are some cute shots…

Bright ideas to help propagate the green thumb

I was out in the Village here in NYC the other  night at an organic restaurant.  Food was quite good and we had delicious cocktails. The star of the night for me was the coaster beneath my Pacific martini (which came with a side of…very strong…vodka infused pineapple). Tru Organic Vodka developed seed embedded coasters…
