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!

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

Avocado Egg Salad

Learn More About This Recipe +

Forget about egg salads that are dripping in high fat mayonnaise, this one is creamy and delicious from healthy mashed avocado and plain yogurt. Eat it alone with chips, stuff it into a pita, or make yourself a good old fashioned egg salad sandwich. Use a good sturdy bread; one that can stand up to the moisture of the egg salad, and then layer in whatever greens you like. Try peppery arugula, pea shoots, or baby spinach and if you're really adventurous, fold a little cooked and crumbled bacon into the egg salad.

This makes only 1 sandwich with some filling leftover, but you could make the filling and serve it with crackers to some kids for a great snack as well. Double to make 2 or 3 sandwiches.

A healthier egg salad!

Potato Bacon Rosti

Learn More About This Recipe +

Rosti is comfort food at it's best-a pancake made of shredded potato, stuffed with bacon and cheese, and fried in butter. How could you go wrong? We like to top ours a poached egg, of course. You can switch up your rosti by swapping the bacon for diced ham, cooked sausage, turkey, or even leave it out altogether to make the dish vegetarian. My family loves rosti for lunch or dinner topped with salsa or Nanny Hudson's homestyle ketchup, with a crisp green salad on the side. Leftovers are fantastic in a lunch cold, but they also re-heat well in an oven.

To re-heat poached eggs, just slip them into a bowl of freshly boiled water and let them sit about 2 minutes before you remove them to a paper towel lined plate. Never, ever put your poached egg into the microwave or it will explode!

Crispy potato stuffed with bacon and cheese-comfort food at it's finest!

Whiskey Bacon Leek Soup With a Poached Egg

Learn More About This Recipe +

This leek soup is about as easy as they come - a bit of veggies and bacon, but there's an unexpected twist on this one, with a hint of whiskey and a bit of hot chile added to make things interesting. The soup is just as good without the whiskey, but if you happen to have some in your cupboard it adds a really nice dimension to an otherwise fairly standard soup. Adding a poached egg on top gives the soup an even better dimension, with the rich yolk running into the broth and crunchy bacon on top? Heaven.

When it comes to chiles, things can be confusing. What kind can you use? There are so many out there, many of which aren't really labled at the store and  all of varying degrees of heat that it makes it hard to judge. I used a small red bird's eye chile. You can use whatever works for you, but a word of caution - get one that isn't too hot, remove the seeds, and wash your hands well afterwards. DO NOT touch your eyes. If you aren't sure about the amount of heat your chile will provide, you can start with just a little and add more if you think it needs it. You want a bit of heat, but not so much that it overpowers the other flavours of the soup.

Healthy never tasted so delicious! Fresh and so full of flavour, you won't even notice that we've left the egg yolks out of this wrap. Whip some up for breakfast to power you through a busy morning or make them as a quick after school snack. You can make them with a larger wrap, just increase the amount of spinach, feta, and cream cheese.

Chocolate Mousse Cakes

Learn More About This Recipe +

Chocolate cupcakes by themselves are the stuff dreams are made of, especially these chocolate ganache cupcakes which are the most requested thing I make. Valentine's Day calls for something special though, so I have been known to top them with chocolate mousse as well. These decadent treats will be a fun dessert for the family and feel very special. You don't even need to bake the cupcakes yourself, just pick up your favourite plain cakes to top yourself.

Get creative and mix and match flavours, serve with fresh fruit or ice cream, and you'll have a Valentine's Day dessert to remember.

Hot and Sour Soup

Learn More About This Recipe +

Warm up this winter with an extremely easy and fast homemade soup that's a departure from boring old chicken noodle! Vinegar adds a bit of bite for the sour, but you have control of the heat. I used sriracha in this version, so you can adjust the heat in the soup to your liking or skip it altogether. Make this soup to use up leftover cooked pork, or you can substitute chicken and add some tofu, even.  An egg added to the broth adds a little extra dimension to it, with strings throughout the soup adding some richness.

My family loved this soup so much so that they devoured the entire pot, then begged me to make it again, as soon as possible. I have a feeling that when cold and flu season strikes our house this is going to be the new favourite remedy!

A quick and economical soup to warm you on a winter day.
