This week on Three Kitchens Podcast, Erin makes a great soup and sandwich for lunch.

This Yellow Dahl Soup has a broth base (she used beef but you could do a veg broth or even just water) and is seasoned with cumin, turmeric, garlic, chilli, ginger and shallots. It's a great budget-friendly soup packed with protein from the lentils and flavour from all those add-ins.

The toast Erin made started with fresh s...

This episode takes us back to one of our favourite fruits, the mighty lemon. We adore lemons in so many ways, both sweet and savoury. Oleo-Saccharum is a syrup made from lemon peels. This is great if you are making a recipe using lemon juice and then don't quite know what to do with the peels. Here is a solution that keeps the peels out of the compost bin, and you end up with a delicious sweet and zingy syrup.

And yo...

We're tackling that most divisive food trend, the jellied salad, on the podcast this week.  While we draw the line at anything containing meat products, we do enjoy a pretty fruit or vegetable jell-o mold, and we have a few recipes that may turn those haters into jellied salad lovers.

If you're new to making them, it may be helpful to know the terms jellied and jell-o may be used interchangeably in recipes.They ...

In this podcast episode we revisit the empanada - a dish we first made a couple of years back. Erin made a filling inspired by an Icelandic lamb soup she loves to make. It made a delicious empanada filling. Even the people in your life who claim to not love lamb will like this, we're sure of it. Not to mention rutabaga. That's in there too!

We got into quite a discussion about boiling eggs. There are so many met...

This week on the podcast, Heather shares two recipes using low-energy countertop appliances. You don't always need to heat a whole oven to make delicious recipes.

First up is a Pork Tenderloin using the Zero Minute Pressure Cooker Method.  This cut of meat can be tricky to prepare. It's easy to over-do it and dry it out. This method for pork tenderloin comes from the website (link below...

It's learning about history through cooking, and we love that.

This episode of Three Kitchens Podcast came about when Erin decided it was time to figure out how to cook with inside round, outside round and sirloin cuts of beef. These cuts are lean and tender, and there's a real possibility of overcooking these cuts.

This week on the podcast, Heather takes on a classic French recipe, Coq au Vin, chicken braised in wine.

This dish usually includes pearl onions, but Heather was unable to find them for this episode. Mushrooms and carrots joined bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs and legs and a whole bottle of burgundy wine. One trick is to marinate the chicken in advance in the wine. Essentially you're going to brown the chicken, then ...

This week on Three Kitchens Podcast, Erin decides to celebrate Australia Day with an Australian recipe for Lamingtons, a sponge cake dipped in chocolate and rolled in coconut.

There's some fun debate about how this recipe was first developed. Was it when a dinner guest accidentally dropped a piece of cake in gravy, which inspired the idea to dip it in chocolate?  Or was it Lord Lamington's personal French chef wh...

This week on Three Kitchens Podcast, we try an American comfort food classic, a tamale pie. Think of a tamale - a variety of fillings, wrapped in a cornbread and steamed in a  corn husk. Deconstruct that by putting those fillings into a skillet, top with cornbread and bake in the oven.

So maybe it's not the real deal, but it is a great way to enjoy similar favours of a tamale with less work in the kitchen. Heather ma...

On this episode of Three Kitchens, Erin makes a  Dutch pannenkoek (plural pannenkoeken ).  It's a pancake that is much thinner than a traditional American pancake (but not quite as thin as a French crepe).

Pannenkoeken are made from a simple batter of eggs, milk, flour, and a bit of salt. They can be enjoyed plain, with syrup or a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. Or, better yet, add any sweet or savoury toppings you love....

This week on the podcast, Erin works on cleaning up some old castiron from the fleamarket, and then uses them to bake up something yummy.

Cast iron pans can last a really long time, even handed down through generations, but they require a little regular maintenance. If you happen to find cast iron that looks rough and rusted, don't worry. You will need to use some elbow grease, but you can bring them back to life.  T...
