Canadian food magazines

Canadian food magazines

One of the best things about moving to a new country is discovering new cooking magazines. The local library carries a ton of titles online and in print so I can test drive a bunch without spending too much money. No new recipes to share (yet) as I figure out if my American readers can access them.

Sunday here was filled with hockey, playdates, saying bye to my Mom, apple chopping and a citrusy chicken dinner. I hope your start to the week smells as delicious as mine.

On the menu this week…

Skillet roasted whole chicken from The Kitchn

Melt-in-your-mouth Skillet Roasted Chicken. She may be sunburned but she was delicious!

Sunday: Skillet Roasted Whole Chicken (from The Kitchn cookbook). I swapped in orange zest in place of lemon for the spice rub. Totally works. Note: this is NOT a weeknight meal. It’s messy, multisteps and you need to have time to maneuver very hots pans in the kitchen. For Sunday, it’s worth it. Tonight’s meal was rounded out with roasted baby carrots with coconut oil and egg noodles. {We followed up dinner with the No Crust Apple Pie…a perfect pair.}

Monday: Steak stir fry and vegetables over rice

Tuesday: Salsa chicken in the slow cooker for Taco Tuesday!

Wednesday: Grilled Chicken served with Wheat Berry salad with feta and oranges. (also from The Kitchn)

Thursday: Testing out seafood in the crock pot. I’ve never done it but think this recipe is worth a try…Crock Poached Salmon Steaks. It cooks for 1.5 hours on high so not your typical slow cooker dinner. For us it works since we can put it on before skating lessons then have it ready when we are back and hungry for dinner. The recipe is from Not Your Mother’s Slowcooker Cookbook. This is a similar recipe although the cooking time is even shorter.

Friday: Friends arrive for the long weekend! Pizza night.

Saturday: Kids hot dogs and double date night as we explore our new town.

Sunday: Canadian Thanksgiving (a day early). Stay tuned for the full menu!

    I actually have Not Your Mother’s Slowcooker Cookbook and I don’t think I’ve ever tried anything from it. I have a terrible habit of collecting cookbooks and never using them. Maybe I should start this meal planning idea 🙂

    I’ve never thought to try cooking salmon in my slow cooker. Perhaps I should go visit Fadra to borrow her copy of Not Your Mother’s Slowcooker Cookbook! And I’m loving those gorgeous cooking mags! How great that your library has digital and print editions for you to check out! I think I’d be pretty content if ours offered cooking magazines in various formats!

    Your posts always make my mouth water and inspire me to try something new! I never thought to try salmon in the slow cooker, and since it’s something my family loves already, I’m intrigued. Thanks for piquing my kitchen geek!
