I have been wanting to make dill pickle soup for as long as I can remember, since my mom mentioned to me in passing that she loved a certain dill pickle soup from a diner in central Alberta. This desire was rekindled when I saw a picture from a fellow Albertan food writer about her dill pickle soup this summer.

I was intrigued by people's response to it. Loved it? Favorite soup?

Christmas in November 2014: The Presenters! http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/christmas-in-november-2014-the-presenters http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/christmas-in-november-2014-the-presenters#respond Wed, 19 Nov 2014 19:19:47 +0000 http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/?p=27872 Christmas in November 2014: The Presenters!



My last post on my trip to the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge and their fabulous Christmas in November event is all about the presenters! Oh, the line-up of superstar presenters this year was amazing! Chef Lynn Crawford, Chef's Anna and Micheal Olson, even some local celebrity restaurant owners were in the mix this year!

I wasn't too sure how smart I was, booking the craft session with Chris Standring first thing in the morning after a Friday night full of wine and food.

However this was the one session that I wanted to take to push my boundaries a bit.

The second part of my three posts on Christmas in November at the Fairmont Jasper Park lodge is going to be alllll about food! Oh yes. I swear, all I did was eat, drink and wander from amazing session to amazing session! Three whole days of it, what total food bliss!

The first sit down meal was the Merry Luncheon and as you can see, it was a feast for lunch!

As you all know, I was a guest of the Fairmont this past week for their amazing annual event, Christmas in November. Christmas in November is the pinnacle of food events in Alberta and something that has been on my bucket list for years now.

Every November the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is flooded with visitors attending this renowned event. The halls are decked, the gorgeous Christmas tree is placed in their lobby and the preparations of the past year are put into place.

Food Networks celebrities such as Chef Lynn Crawford, Chefs Anna and Micheal Olson and more fly in to entertain guests in fairly small, intimate sessions, allowing us star-struck fans the opportunity to listen to them, learn from them and yes, even chat with them and get our pictures taken.

Our Favorite Meatloaf From Campbell’s Soup http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/our-favorite-meatloaf-from-campbells-soup http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/our-favorite-meatloaf-from-campbells-soup#comments Sun, 16 Nov 2014 23:50:52 +0000 http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/?p=27873 Our Favorite Meatloaf From Campbell’s Soup



If you are a longtime reader (or heck, even a new reader) of this site, you will know by now that I love using canned soup in recipes.  I have also been known to eat mushroom soup from the can. Yah, I admit it; I love that stuff and it does have to be ONLY Campbell's Mushroom soup, no other will do.

So when an opportunity came up to be a Campbell's Ambassador and cook with their soup for the next six months, you can guess how fast I said YES, please and thank you!

I am going to be short on cooking time this coming year, thanks to my first cookbook being in the works.

Do you know that feeling when you get to check an item off your Bucket List? That giddy, heady, swirly-butterflies-in-the-stomach joy that encompasses you from head to toe?  I just spent three entire days feeling that like and it wasn't just the wine and good food that did it.

This past weekend I was able to attend the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge's famous Christmas in November as a guest blogger for the Fairmont. Christmas in November has been on my Bucket List for as long as I have know about the event and to be hosted by the Fairmont was a literal dream come true.

I've never considered myself adept at keeping a secret. Sure, I can remember not to let slip what your Christmas present is or pretend that I don't know anything about what's happening for your 35th birthday party. However, a ten month secret? Man, I would have told you that all bets were off with that one yet here I am, writing about the biggest darn secret I've ever kept to myself. So here goes.

Every Christmas season is the time for me to pick the companies that I truly enjoy working with and I am always so lucky that I get to choose companies whose products I love or that have stores that I really do shop at. This is always so important to me; if I don’t shop there in real life, how can I honestly write about products for you guys?  So when the chance came to team up with Shoppers Drug Mart, I knew it would be a good pairing for this Christmas season.

I am completely a secret Shoppers Drug Mart shopper and I use the word “secret” because I depend on that store for emergency, last-minute shopping. I pick up my celebration cards (birthdays, last minute snacks for the kids, all our medications, vitamins and so much more.

Dare2Give This Holiday Season http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/dare2give-this-holiday-season http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/dare2give-this-holiday-season#respond Mon, 10 Nov 2014 16:00:43 +0000 http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/?p=27785 Dare2Give This Holiday Season



With the Christmas season rapidly approaching, our thoughts always turn to our community, giving and charity work. The newest campaign that I am proud to be a part of is the latest in the My Giving Moment campaign (inspired by the Governor General of Canada) and is called Dare2Give.

The concept is simple; research has shown that one of the main reasons that people decide to give is simply because someone asked them to and that an effective way to ask someone is to dare them. We are encouraged to think about the possibilities; what would happen if everyone challenged one other person to donate or volunteer along with them?

Dare2Give by My Giving Moment is asking Canadian givers to dare other to donate or volunteer with them and to be honest, if anyone can do it, it’s us Canadians.

This early October saw my family and I packing up our hunting gear and driving out from our respective cities of Edmonton and Calgary to meet in a small place just outside the famous Delta Marsh called St Ambroise in Manitoba.

If you are a long time reader of The Kitchen Magpie, you will have seen the trip that my sister and I took to the famous Jimmy Robinson's Sports Lodge last year. My sister and I had such an amazing time that we immediately started concocting a family trip for the next year, bringing our Dad and our brother Wyatt with us.

While my sister and I hunted last year the topic kept turning to how much Dad would love to hunt here.

Here's the thing:

You know how some recipes make me giggle, from the sheer delicious factor?

Well, this recipe for Tater Tots Shepherd's Pie is worth a minute or two of full-blown belly laughter. This is one of those recipes that I have been meaning to make forever. I picked up a bag of Tater Tots - something that rarely graces my freezer because they are delicious and evil and addicting - and thought perhaps I would do a classic mushroom soup and Tater Tot casserole, something a friend suggested I try when I was craving my usual mushroom soup fix.

For some reason when I went to pull out the bag of Tater Tots, I  had this irresistible urge to make Shepherd's Pie with Tater Tots on top, instead of the mushroom soup concoction.

I am thrilled beyond words to not only be attending Christmas in November this year at the Fairmont Jasper Park lodge but to be attending a year that Edmonton is truly represented there!

Let's face it, we are often overlooked here in Edmonton when it comes to culinary talent (for absolutely no good reason at all)  so I was tickled pink to see that not only Tres Carnales will be presenting (for the first and third groups of visitors) but also RGE Rd will be entertaining the mid-week visitors as well. Two of the most influential teams in Edmonton food, how amazing is that? I sadly am missing the RGE Rd demo so I haven't connected with them beforehand, but I sure did pop in to visit the Tres Carnales team to see how they were doing!

Now, I know what Tres Carnales will be whipping up for us at Christmas in November and let me tell you, it's one amazing treat!

When we were in the States last winter we stopped in at a little place on the I-15 that we have driven by countless times. Oh, don't ask me where or what it's called, but it's a rest stop that has a small little town by it. I would know it to look at it and while we always stop to stretch our legs,  we've never eaten at the small roadside restaurant. Until this last trip, that is.

While everything on the menu was nice, not fancy, just a decent clubhouse and salad, the soup of the day reminded me of one of my very favorite, old fashioned soups that I hadn't eaten in years.

Am I the only one who always forgets about turnips? I honestly walk by them in the grocery store about every 19 trips out of 20, then all of a sudden I have this immense craving for them.

Perhaps it's because it's fall, perhaps it's because it's chilly, but I was craving turnips again the other day while grocery shopping. I brought one home where of course, it sat for a few days.

I then panicked, like I usually do, and rushed to use it up the other night.

Am I the only one who always forgets about turnips? I honestly walk by them in the grocery store about every 19 trips out of 20, then all of a sudden I have this immense craving for them.

Perhaps it’s because it’s fall, perhaps it’s because it’s chilly, but I was craving turnips again the other day while grocery shopping. I brought one home where of course, it sat for a few days.

I then panicked, like I usually do, and rushed to use it up the other night.

Spinach, Tomato & Chickpea Stew http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/spinach-tomato-chickpea-stew http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/spinach-tomato-chickpea-stew#comments Fri, 03 Oct 2014 21:49:32 +0000 http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/?p=27426 Spinach, Tomato & Chickpea Stew



I absolutely love a fast, healthy soup for lunch when Fall hits. I don't mind fussing around with a more complex soup for supper when I have time but when it comes to lunch, it has to be very fast and easy. I'm now busy homeschooling the kids during the day and wow, has my kitchen time gone down! I know that we only have the first month under our belt and that it's going to get better and better, but for now, my kitchen time is spent running back and forth between helping them at the kitchen table and the stove.

I wanted a really fast soup this past week, something that was super healthy and really fast.

Rostizado in Edmonton, Alberta http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/rostizado-in-edmonton-alberta http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/rostizado-in-edmonton-alberta#comments Thu, 02 Oct 2014 23:32:05 +0000 http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/?p=27527 Rostizado in Edmonton, Alberta



If Tres Carnales is the swingin' younger sister in hoop earrings and a sequined dress doing tequila shots off of a bare-chested bartender, then Rostizado is her older sister, comfortably laid back in some well-loved jeans, savoring the multi-layered flavors of a good mescal, sans the trendy worm.

That, my Edmonton friends, sums up the two restaurants more than anything else I or anyone else can write about it.

Are you a sequins or jeans person?

I am a jeans person and while some of you may argue that I can party like an animal when the occasion arises (and I completely concede that point to you) I haven't been the hoop earrings and sequins kinda girl in many a year.

Tres Carnales is flashy, quick, crazy-wild fun that has line-ups but no lingering.

Spicy Cumin & Ginger Drumsticks http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/spicy-cumin-ginger-drumsticks http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/spicy-cumin-ginger-drumsticks#comments Wed, 01 Oct 2014 17:18:35 +0000 http://www.thekitchenmagpie.com/?p=27509 Spicy Cumin & Ginger Drumsticks



My last (aww!) post for my stint as a Patak's ambassador is one from their new online recipe book, Smoke & Spice. I chose to barbeque up their Spicy Cumin and Ginger drumsticks, as spicy chicken is one of the ONLY ways I will get my son to eat chicken. Indeed, these were a hit with him and they will go into the dinner rotation from now on.

You use the Spicy Ginger & Cumin Sauce for Two and while the sauce is definitely spicy, the yogurt in the recipe brings the heat level down considerably, so don't be scared to try it out!

Oh my goodness, the pictures I find when I start cleaning things out a little bit! Yes, it's time for a bit of fall cleaning photo-wise (you think your house is messy? Good grief, come look at my computer!) and I'm sorting through old photos.

These ones had Mr K and I holding our sides laughing.
