Truth about food bloggers is that food blogging is a labour of love. It is also hard work. It is work! It is business. And we deserve to be compensated. Let me tell you what actually goes into publishing and producing a recipe. I write in small paragraphs. They are usually two or three…

I took a little break from blogging. I wish it was a break to relax and recharge, but life happened and I just physically had no time and, on occasion, no energy to sit down in front of my computer and write a post. Life is funny. Sometimes there are days, weeks even, when everything is the same and slow and comforting and hours drag like thick molasses. And then suddenly there are swirls of activities, events, deadlines that hit you over the head and rush over thick and steaming like boiling and foaming milk. You blink and a month has gone.
And when life is happening and you have no choice but let it be, these Instant Pot Meatballs and Mashed Potatoes are an easy and delicious comforting meal, ideal for a weeknight dinner. Meatballs are healthy and not fried. The whole dish comes together easy in a pressure cooker and you don’t have to watch multiple pots and pans to cook a complete meal.
When making these Braised Duck Breasts with Apples and Onions, your kitchen will smell like a high-end restaurant. Succulent duck breasts meld together with delicious sweet and tart apple-onion sauce with cranberries. It’s a comforting and delicious meal perfect for any celebration or just a cozy weekend dinner.
This recipe for the Braised Duck Breasts with Apples and Onions is an homage to that Russian Duck with Apples. In Russia, the most popular duck recipe is for the whole duck that is stuffed with whole or chopped apples and then roasted in the oven. In my version, I use duck breasts that I sear first, then braise in a delicious mixture of Ontario apples, onions, thyme, and cranberries. For those who think that braising duck breasts is a sacrilege, I tried this same recipe with duck legs also. It works and is totally delicious but I personally like Braised Duck Breasts with Apples and Onions more than the legs. To make this recipe even more Russian, I serve it with buckwheat, which is a traditional side in Russian cuisine.

For the past few weeks I’ve been thinking about food blogging a lot, which is not really unusual since I blog about food. However, this time I wasn’t thinking about recipes; I was contemplating the pressure of food blogging. I’ve been trying to post twice a week. Think about it! twice a week for a…
