BMO Vancouver Marathon 2015

BC Egg is a proud supporter of the BMO Vancouver Marathon. This year we are supporting the next generation of runners as they compete the Kids Run.

We will be at the event handing out swag bags of lots of fun goodies.

Egg Painted Cookies

Learn More About This Recipe +

Sometimes lazy spring break days turn into “I'm bored” and you need a project for the kids to do that can keep them busy. Baking is fun and actually is quite educational-all that measuring and reading directions is quite good for little brains. These sugar cookies with a touch of cinnamon are not just delicious, but quite easy for older children to make with minimal supervision, and younger ones will love the novelty of painting their food with a glaze of egg yolks and food coloring. The glaze bakes up to quite bright colors and gives the cookies a really nice sheen.

If you are really ambitious, you could make butterfly cookies, read “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle, then head outside with the kids to visit a butterfly sanctuary. My parents still get a giggle from memories of me as a child, running through the field nearby our house, catching butterflies for Mason jars and declaring anything orange a monarch. Or you could cut the eggs out into egg shapes and the kids can decorate them with sprinkles, egg glaze and icing to make a delicious addition to Easter dinner next week. Either way, these cookies are as tasty as they are fun to make!

 

A tasty spring project to keep the kids busy!

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies

Learn More About This Recipe +

If chocolate and peanut butter could have babies, it would add up to these amazing peanut butter cheesecake brownies. Layers of creamy cheesecake on top of rich chocolate brownie make this rich square something you'll really want to savour for a special day!  Make one pan for yourself and another to share with friends, I can guarantee they won't last long if you do. Leave the Easter eggs to the kids and surprise the adults at any Easter gathering with a special treat!

Make sure to use natural peanut butter (the kind without sugar or salt) for best results. Processed peanut butter changes the texture of the cheesecake.

Peanut butter and chocolate combined into one decadent bite.

Jelly Roll French Toast Sticks

Learn More About This Recipe +

These French toast sticks are all about fun. Stuffed with cream cheese and any flavour jam you choose then rolled in cinnamon sugar, they are just like eating a warm jelly doughnut. Kids will love to help make (and eat!) them. You won't need any syrup for dipping as they are sweet enough, but the fun thing about these is you can mix up the fillings all you want. Try nutella and bananas or strawberries, different flavours of cream cheese, speculoos cookie butter or nut butters, and get creative! I used white bread but you could swap out whole wheat if you really wanted to. I loved the cream cheese and jam filling so much so that I ate three. You may have trouble restraining yourself, too.

The recipe itself is a little loose, mostly because it makes quite a bit of the French toast dipping mixture. You may make 8 and then decide that you need more, so I've kept this recipe more like a guideline rather than hard and fast measuring rules.

Baked Italian Eggs

Learn More About This Recipe +

What's better than a rich tomato sauce, lots of cheese, and creamy egg? These Italian baked eggs are a great light dinner or lunch, perfect to dip crusty bread into to sop up yolk or sauce. Make one or two, or you can triple the recipe and make enough for more in a large baking dish. The trick is to use the best marinara sauce you can find, and you won't be disappointed!

Baked Eggs in Peppers

Learn More About This Recipe +

Sweet bell peppers make a great little nest to cook you eggs in, and these have been dressed up with a little crunchy panko and parmesan. Baking them in the oven allows you to make enough for a crowd, and served on top of a toasted and buttered English muffin, they are a perfect little breakfast. The only thing you have to watch is cutting the rings thick enough for it to hold all the egg! Use a rainbow of peppers for the best visual effect.

Pepper up your eggs!

Deviled Egg Chicks

These little birds are going to chirp their way straight to your kid's snack plate! Dress up the usual deviled eggs by turning them into a chorus of cute little chicks just in time for Spring.

Cookie Butter Stuffed French Toast

Learn More About This Recipe +

Why have ordinary French toast when you can have it filled with spicy, rich speculoos cookie butter? Warm ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon flavours take your French toast to new levels-and you can make it even better with a dusting of icing sugar or a drizzle of sweet maple syrup. The cookie butter becomes melty when warm, leaving you wanting to lick the plate.

Be sure to use the best quality bread you can for the best results. Speculoos cookie butter can be found in Superstores in the Lower Mainland.

Egg Breakfast Pizzas

Learn More About This Recipe +

Pizza flavours turn scrambled eggs and English muffins into something kids will love to eat for breakfast! Change them up by adding your favourite veggies if you like, but we stuck to pizza salami and mozzarella. They are something easy enough for the kids to make themselves, but tasty enough you'll want some for breakfast as well.

A kid friendly twist on eggs for breakfast!

Chocolate Pudding

Learn More About This Recipe +

Dark and rich, this pudding contains only things you can name-sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, eggs, and milk. There's nothing weird in here so you can feel okay about making it for your kids for a treat-also it takes almost no time to make! The kids can even do it on their own!

This pudding is so tasty you won't want to just leave for the kids, you'll find yourself sneaking into the fridge at night to grab a creamy spoonful. It's just THAT good.
 

The homemade version is so much better than anything from a box.
