I work from home in Northern Ontario doing tech support, to pay the bills. My boyfriend John and I love cooking and cycling together. I love cooking food that has alot of flavor by using fresh herbs and grinding my spices from the whole spice. I like stocking up on things and freezing seasonally. We make frequent trips to Toronto and Michigan to get supplies that are not available here . You know you are a foodie/cooking addict when you get more excited about a new recipe or kitchen gadget , than buying a new dress.
Sometimes I wish that I could just hike up into the forest and live in a hollowed out tree, like that little boy did in the old movie called My Side of the Mountain. It sounds like so much fun to live off the land and spend your days cooking over an open fire, while enjoying nature all around you. In reality it is probably the hardest work, but I don’t care I would rather be tired at the end of the day from doing that kind of work than having some of the stress modern society puts on us. It’s not a bad thing to want a simpler life. Well I guess with winter almost upon us here, I start thinking about hibernation and such, so I’m sharing with you my tried and true recipe for some great wholesome buns , to help stock up for the winter.
These buns are a great all purpose bun, you can use for practically everything from sandwiches to subs, to burgers, and everything else in between. I doubled the batch to freeze them . We like to make sandwiches to take with us on our adventures .
It’s been a couple of weeks now since I’ve posted a recipe. Night shift has it’s drawbacks. Cooking in the middle of the night tip toeing around like Twinkle Toes is not easy. I thought I would share this recipe for Creamy Chicken and Corn Chowder with you , because it is yet again an easy one to make when time is limited, and if you cook up some extra chicken you can use it the next day to make Ruth’s Smokey Chicken and Potato Salad.
