Growing up in Northern Ontario, we always had access to fresh fish, which is one thing I miss, now that we live in a big city. Any chance we get, during the summer, we go fishing at the cottage. Although we rarely keep our catch, I do miss feasting on fresh cooked fish. You really can't beat that! Since we don't keep our catch that often, I am always looking for great alternatives at the grocery store. Frozen isn't as good as a fresh catch, but we make it work.

I often bring sole fillets home from the grocery store and this time I decided I wanted to stuff them with asparagus. I decided to top the fillets with a crispy bread crumb topping, which I seasoned with lemon pepper. I love lemon with sole, so I knew I wanted to incorporate in somehow. The fish cooked beautifully, it was moist and tender, and the dish looked amazing. Totally something that can be made for a dinner party, since it's a gorgeous way to prepare fish and takes hardly any time to prepare.









Crispy Asparagus Stuffed Sole


1 pkg sole fillets (mine came frozen)
20 asparagus spears, trimmed
1 lemon
1/2 C panko bread crumbs
1 Tbs parmesan cheese
1 tsp lemon pepper
1 Tbs dried parsley
1 Tbs melted butter
1/4 tsp salt
fresh ground pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Bring a large skillet filled with 1 inch of water to a boil. Season with salt and add the asparagus spears. Cook 3-5 minutes, until vibrant green and tender crisp. Remove asparagus from water and place in a large bowl of ice water. Drain and pat dry.

In a small bowl combine the bread crumbs, parmesan, lemon pepper and parsley.

Cut lemon in half lengthwise. Cut one half into 5 wedges.

Place sole fillets on a cutting board and season with salt and pepper. Place one lemon wedge in the center of the fish fillet and top with 4 asparagus spears. Fold ends of the fillets over the asparagus and lemon. Holding ends folded tightly, dip top part of the fish bundle into the bread crumb mixture. Place seam side down onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining fillets.

Bake for 10-15 minutes, until fish flakes easily and bread crumbs begin to brown. Serve with remaining lemon, which has been cut into wedges.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Peanut Butter Confetti Squares

 A mixture of peanut butter and butterscotch chips, coat colourful marshmallows, for a simple, fun and easy holiday treat! My family calls these Galettes Froides, but most people know these as confetti squares. My grandmothers would make these for Christmas, and Mom has been making these desserts at Christmas time, since I can remember. They've always been my favourite because of the use of the rainbow marshmallows. There's just something about the colours that make these looks so yummy. These squares couldn't be more simple to make and I love that they are no bake as well. Some people use regular white marshmallows, some people use chunky peanut butter and some people add coconut. I like them each and every way I can get them. It wouldn't be Christmas without these confetti squares making an appearance.
