Meals of the Week: vol 3

Seems like I’ve been neglecting the blog for a lil while, Summer can have that effect. But that didn’t mean that things weren’t bubbling away at the Rutti Tutti Foodie kitchen.  This summer was one of trying new things. We had a wonderful berry season and made massive amounts of jam. Blueberry, cherry, strawberry and…

Seafood Summer Feast !

Summer is officially here. After putting the BBQ to good use over the weekend, I thought it might be nice to switch things up. While strolling down the fish and seafood section while grocery shopping, I noticed a nice display of fresh Mussels. It’s something I’ve been looking to try out at home so figured…

Fire up the Barbie

Ahhhh the weekend. Time to relax, kick back in the sun and enjoy a cold beverage and fire up the BBQ for some good eats I’ve never been huge on steak (I can hear the gasps upon writing this). But when the sun is shining and the weather is warm, I love a good steak….

The Perfect Burger

Summertime is here and that means summer food season is going strong. One of the summertime staples is of course the Burger, and of course everyone has their recipe for the ultimate, perfect burger. My recipe for the perfect burger might be a bit flavorful for alot but here at Rutti Tutti Foodie, we’re all…

Summer of Salads

As you can maybe tell by now, Summer food has been the theme this week. With all the delicious foods that go hand and hand with summer, sometimes it’s easy to forget the healthier side of summer. With some days being too warm for using the stove it’s good to have some meal ideas ready…

I only came for CAKE! 

Even though the weather is heating up, that doesn’t mean we should settle for iced desserts (especially when dairy doesn’t always agree with you). For that reason, among many others, I’ve been on a ‘if we’re gonna have sweats, there gonna be homemade’ kick. The last couple of weeks have been fairly busy, but I’ve…

BBQ Season is upon us 

With the warm weather gracing us again, the smell of charred meat and vegetables can be smelt every evening.  Our love for BBQ goes deep, as it gives an excuse (like we need one) to spend time in the sun, and it just gives such a nice change of flavor and textures from indoor cooking….

Meals of the Week: vol 2

Well the past week has been a whirlwind of craziness. Last week here in Eastern Canada (mainly Quebec and Ontario) we have been in the midst of some serious flooding. Thankfully it has not reached where I am located as we are fairly far from the shores, however many friends and family have not been…

Meals of the week (Roasted Veggies, Pork Chops, Ultimate Burger)

With the good weather starting to finally shine through, it’s been tough to stay cooped up in the house, especially after a long cold winter. Now is the time for outdoor cookouts, firing up the BBQ, and playing outside.     Oven Roasted Veggies (Red Onion, Asparagus, Carrots, Zucchini) But fret not my Rutti Tutti…

Italian herb and cheese bread

With the warm Spring weather finally starting to shine through, it’s hard to stay in the kitchen. But today I was inspired to bake. I had some cheddar cheese just yearning to be baked into some delicious bread. This bread is a simple recipe, using the same dough as the Mediterranean Olive Bread, without the…

Easy Veggie Primavera 

Last night, I had a craving for pasta. But I’ve had so much pasta over the cold winter days that I wanted to eat something a bit different. Also having no meat on hand, but tons of fresh produce – I thought it might be nice to have a fresh take on Primavera.  I chopped…

Mongolian Beef w/ Udon noodles 

As the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers, today was a cold rainy day. On rainy days like today, I like to prepare a hot dinner to fill our stomachs with much needed warmth. This Hump day I wanted to try my new Mongolian beef recipe. I used to make it with a sauce…
