Best Poutine: Fromagerie d'Etoile

Got me a poutine in Magog, Qc the other day and almost fell off my stole... It was out of this world - home made cheese curds, pepper sauce, hand cut double fried french fries, hamburger, and mushrooms - If you ever are in town and need a fix, GO!!!!

Homemade Pizza Rectangle

Been into making dough these last few months, this day it was a great result! It tasted pretty darn good too. Salami, onions, peppers, garlic, basil, spicy tomato sauce, and three cheese mix.

Still in pursuit of the perfect burger... 
This one I called the burger royal;
A mix of veal, beef and pork pattie
Caramelized onions, mushrooms, peppers and garlic
Swiss and Cheddar cheese
Dressed Caesar salad for top
on a freshly baked cheese bun

La Carreta Restaurant - 2014

Salvadorian food is interesting; lots of carbs. What was not the best about La Carreta was their seasoning... there was none. For an older established restaurant you'd think they'd get it right. If it wasn't for the bottle of tomato based hot sauce and the spicy relish it would have been somewhat forgettable. The enchilada was bland, the pupas were heavy and the guacamole lacked inspiration.

Burger Bar - 2014

The Burger Bar on Cresent St. in Montreal, QC get burgers! The hangover burger; yes the behemoth stuffed with poutine, bacon, egg, beef and cheese was outstanding. A small coma ensues, but well worth the investment.

Pub grub at it's most original... Excellent little resto for drinks, fun food and tons of character.

Fall Apples

The littles love Fall because the apples arrive. This year T. made her first apple pies from scratch. Her recipe was amazing and the boys couldn't stop eating...

Smoked Ribs BBQ

I have been smoking a lot this summer and a new trick I have been doing is putting a smoke pack right in the BBQ with the ribs... Always indirect heat and I turn the BBQ as slow as possible and let it ride. The cooking time is about three hours at 180 degrees - I have just used maple this year, and everyone seems to enjoy; never leftovers!!!

To make smoke pack, get small pieces of maple, no bark, and wet them and wrap it up in aluminum foil put it right on the part of BBQ with heat/flame and let it smoke away...

5 Saisons Sushi - 2014

Sushi is awesome; 
this time around we went to a great BYOB sushi joint that offers tons of choices, and the fish is always ocean fresh... We indulged in some appetizers, a few rolls and some pure fish.
Excellent prices, excellent serves and outstanding food.
