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!

Braised Celery with Black Olives

Has that celery in your fridge seen better days? Braise it to raise it from sad and forgotten to a simple and savory side dish!


1/2 lb celery (4 stalks with leaves)

1 tbsp butter

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp minced garlic

salt and pepper to taste

2 pinches red pepper flakes

1/4 cup pitted black kalamata olives

1/4 cup chicken broth


Using a vegetable peeler, remove the stringy bits from the celery stalks. Reserve the leaves then cut the celery diagonally into 3-4" pieces. Heat butter and oil in a pan on medium high and add the celery, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Cook about 4 minutes then add the garlic for 30 seconds. 

Add the broth, cover and reduce temperature to low for 5 minutes. Uncover, add the olives and cook on medium heat until liquid is reduced to lightly glaze the celery and olives, about 3-4 minutes.

Top with chopped celery leaves and serve with a roast or chops.
Serves 2
