Ogre BBQ
JImzgrl and the "Ogre"
Rowdy Kitchen Girl
About this Cook
I'm a licensed bartender at the Harp and Crown Pub in Pickering, Ontario. I make a mean martini and people love my Bloody Caesars (secret ingredient is ground cardamom - don't tell!). Mojitos and Margueritas are also favourites of my regulars. Still working on that darned cookbook... Jeez these things take forever to do.
My favorite things to cook
Steak Pie, Crab Quiche (check out the recipe on this site), crepes, omelettes, and anything on the grill.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Shortbread for Christmas time, big English style Christmas breakfast (Gingerbread Cake, Dorset Apple Cake, sausage, bacon, and of course Champagne and Orange Juice!)
My cooking triumphs
Finally figured out how to make Yorkshire pudding from scratch.
My cooking tragedies
Yorkshire pudding used to be rather like hockey pucks. Also, accidentally used 2 tbsp cayenne instead of 2 tbsp paprika in my chili con carne once. People at it anyway, but were rather sweaty when done...

I made this for my daughter, who is a seafood nut, and she's been bugging me to make it again ever since. The only thing I did differently was I used fresh herbs instead of dried, and substituted cod for salmon. Orherwise, wouldn't change anything else!

Cherry Icebox Cookies
Just like Mom used to make at Christmas time! The kids and the husband ate them all before we could serve them to guests. Maybe too good a receipt!

Cream of Pumpkin Soup
This turned out great but I added more brown sugar to sweeten it up a bit and give it some life. My husband was always bugging me to try to make it for him, and he loved it. We served it as first course with Thanksgiving dinner.
