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.

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.

Spiced Nuts

A little spice, a little sweet is the perfect combination in these candied nuts. Eat them as a snack, chop them up and toss into salads or over your favourite ice cream, but whatever you do you won't be able to resist them. The level of heat is adjustable-add more cayenne if you like them spicy, or less if you prefer. Try using different kinds of raw, unsalted nuts-pecans, cashews, and almonds all make for great snackers.


Sweet and spicy nuts for snacking!

Chocolate Souffles

Learn More About This Recipe +

If you are looking for a quick and easy recipe dessert for Valentine's Day, look no further! Chocolate souffle is a decadent dessert that looks impressive, but is a lot easier to make than you may think. Whip up a batch for two, or double this recipe for 6 and serve it to the whole family! Souffles always deflate a bit once you remove them from the oven, but this just means you have more room to pour some rich chocolate sauce in the middle. Death by chocolate? Seems like a great way to go, if you ask me.

A sweet treat for your Valentine!

Blender Hollandaise Sauce

A friend of mine told me that she'd "eat cardboard if it came with hollandaise". Whether you drizzle your eggs benedict with it, top crepes or asparagus, hollandaise is a rich, smooth sauce that is hard to resist. It usually can be a little tricky to make, but this recipe keeps things really easy!

Rich and creamy, you'll want to put it on everything!
