Quesadilla Tricks

How I Cook — by Graham Stewart

I was in the grocery store picking up things to make pizza for supper, ran into a friend and his wife. They follow my blog and commented on my Quesadilla post. His wife had tried making them both my way and the fold over way. She said with the fold over style the tortilla was crisp but the filling wasn’t melted, by the the the filling melted the tortilla was burnt. With my way everything fell apart when she tried to flip it, so they never tried again. They both really like them but they thought they were way to hard to make at home. I asked exactly how they had made them, seen the problem and explained exactly what went wrong. They understand and are going to make quesadillas for supper. When I got home I read my original post and realized that why they failed was my fault…

Chicken Quesadilla For Valentine’s Day

How I Cook — by Graham Stewart

5B8ECB4B-BCB7-4FB4-9962-4609B8986615My wife loves chicken quesadillas, she asks for me to make them everytime we have leftover chicken. Still remember the first time she had one, it was in a restaurant in Calgary with our niece Dianne. Will admit I do enjoy making them but I prefer fajitas over quesadillas. It’s Valentine’s Day so it’s what my wife likes that wins the day, as it should be. Normally I use leftover chicken but don’t have any, so just cooked 2 chicken breast and used them. Everything else I had in the fridge so no trip to the store. There easy to make as long as you have the proper sized frying pan. Since I have made them before the recipe is posted April 5,2019. I don’t make the fold over type many because I like the challenge of flipping it. It’s a way easier to make it doing the fold over…

Simple Salty Pork (Babi Kecap)


This recipe belongs to my mother as she always made this when I was back home in Indonesia. It is so simple, but delicious! It feels home. I always love the combination of ginger and garlic; the spiciness of the ginger keeps my body warm and the fragrance of ginger makes me want to eat more… This simple dish can be done in a very short time, the only work needs to be done is slicing the pork. Serve it with jasmine rice while it’s hot and you will be satisfied. Simple yet yummy. Enjoy!

Honey Dijon Glazed Salmon

Fieldhouse Kitchen

I love salmon. Sometimes I’ll just lightly coat it with olive oil and a little salt and pepper while other times I’ll get more creative.

This glaze is robust and flavorful and pairs wonderfully with salmon (I’ve also used this marinade on chicken and pork and it’s just as yummy). I prefer salmon on the grill, but it’s also far less messy and equally satisfying when baked. While I break out the grill pan for this recipe, you can just as easily make it without one. I’ll show you how.

Honey Dijon Glazed Salmon IngredientsHere’s what you’ll need for my Honey Dijon Glazed Salmon (makes 1 serving):

  •  1 salmon filet
  • 2 tablespoons of honey Dijon mustard (OR 1 tablesoon of honey mixed with 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard)
  • 2 teaspoons of orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 a large clove of garlic (not pictured)

Crispy Baked Chicken Wings

Fieldhouse Kitchen

Chicken wings are a thing — and a big thing among my family and friends.

My mom likes hers “extra crispy, with sauce on the side.” My brother-in-law Kent prefers his coated with a buttery Buffalo sauce. No matter how you like to eat them, one thing most of us can agree on is that when it comes to wings, it’s difficult to mess them up.

This recipe is a healthier alternative to chicken wings that are traditionally fried. The key is to bake them on high heat using a rack to make sure the heat circulates evenly around each wing. This also ensures the wings crisp and don’t steam and become soggy.

These wings are also gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free.

Raw ChickenTo start, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. 

Here’s what you’ll need:

Chicken Wing IngredientsServes 2-3

  • 1.5 pounds of chicken wings (~14 wings)
  • 1.5-2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon…
