Sesame Ginger Japanese Eggplant Skewers


 


I just love it when you wing a recipe and it turns out perfectly on the first first try.  This recipe was exactly that.  Yesterday my husband and I purchased a new fridge, so as a result I ended up cleaning out our old fridge and getting rid some expired/freezer burnt food. The result was a gorgeously clean new fridge - with very little groceries inside.  It inspired me to go grocery shopping, and while at the store I picked up a couple of veggies I hadn't tried before -  Japanese Eggplants being one of them.

Slow Cooker Maple Baked Beans


This recipe appeared as my column in the February 9th edition of The Hinton Voice. 

[I fell in love with Maple Baked Beans on my first trip out east.  I was staying a mere 18 km from the Montreal border and beans were a staple at every single store I walked into.  In fact, even the tiny town I was staying in had their very own bean factory that had line ups well into the afternoon, until they inevitably sold out for the day.  Every local I visited had beans in their fridge, and they came out at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Needless to say, once I was back home in Alberta, the flavour of freshly baked beans were ingrained in my memory, and I knew I had to try to re-create them at home.
