I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Pork Meatball Stew

I usually don't care for a light coloured gravy, but this stew hits all the flavour points of a good French Canadian ragoût de boulettes, regardless of it's pale sauce!


1 lb ground pork
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tbsps milk
1 egg
2-3 tsps minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp dry thyme
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tbsps dry parsley

2 tbsps butter
2 cups beef broth
3/4 cup milk
2 tsps dijon mustard
1 bay leaf
3 cups diced potatoes
1 medium carrot, sliced
1 cup diced turnip
2 tbsps cold water
2 tbsps flour

Combine the ground pork, panko, milk, egg, minced garlic, salt, pepper, allspice, thyme, cinnamon, onion powder and parsley. Take heaping tablespoons and roll into 1" balls. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.

While the meatballs cook, put the rest of the stew together. Heat the broth, butter, milk and dijon together in a  large skillet. Add the bay leaf, potatoes, carrot and turnip. Bring to a boil, then simmer until vegetables are cooked, about 12-14 minutes. Combine 2 tbsps cold water with 2 tbsps flour. Add a little of the liquid from the warm stew, maybe 2 or 3 tbsps, to the water/flour mix, then whisk it all into the stew. Bring to a boil then simmer.

Add the meatballs and continue simmering 2-3 minutes. 

Remove the bay leaf and serve.
