Pasta Primavera

Chicken and shrimp pasta primavera with oyster and grilled portobello mushrooms, sweet peas, asparagus, red pepper and parmesan cheese. Some of the shrimps were grilled and spicy hot.  So many fresh flavours with a light comforting creamy sauce.  All homemade...it was so good.

Schwartz Smoke Meat

I made a smoked meat today at home.  Although it was good, it wasn't even close to Schwartz smoked meat and therefore didn't make the cut on my blog.  Enjoy this beautiful picture of a real smoked meat I ate not too long ago in Montreal.

Nice Racks!

Unbelievable tender and tasty ribs on the BBQ with a nice spice rub and a habanero sauce. These ribs were not boiled and therefore kept all their flavour.  Thanks to my brother for giving me his recipe.
