Can a potato latke recipe that’s twice cooked be twice as good as a traditional potato latke? No, but in some ways, it can be even better!

This easy chicken curry recipe is fast to get on the table during the week! Because curries are so quick, like this Thai chicken curry, we fall back on them around the holidays when there’s so little time to cook. It’s also our go to when we’re too tired to cook because there’s so little prep work (especially when you already have left over rice).
Oven pork back ribs are awesome on the grill as a last step, but sometimes that isn’t possible during the winter. So this is the next best thing! And these oven pork back ribs are super fast too because the first step is to use a pressure cooker (or instant pot)! No need to even marinate or let the spice rub sit on the ribs; the pressure cooker does all the work of penetrating flavour into the meat. You can have fall off the bone sweet, caramelized and slightly sticky ribs in just over an hour!
If I’m being honest, we prefer these to just about every rib we’ve had at a rib fest cooked low and slow for hours! They even have that smoky flavour thanks to liquid smoke!

It wasn’t until we were just about ready to list my sister’s house that how to whiten sheets even came onto our radar. Up until then, we stored our yellowed cotton sheets and duvet cover away, thinking they’d never see the ‘white’ of day again. But an impending open house and zero staging budget have a way of getting us to spring into action! Continue reading
