Gluten-Free Masa Cornbread

Once upon a time, earlier this summer, Ashley took me to a secret vegetarian- and gluten-free-friendly brunch spot: E.L. Ruddy Co. Café.  They do all sorts of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free muffins in a super-cute space with a really chill vibe. I ordered the Yelapa — scrambled eggs (or tofu), home fries, “refried” beans, housemade salsa, […]

Gluten-Free Cappuccino Quinoa Muffins

My lovely friend Nicole and I are both members of our local art gallery. While we were there, we got to talking about what I’d been cooking lately. I told her all about Ashley’s Fatayer, and about our new breakfast favourite (a variation on my Huevos Mildred, recipe coming soon).  We got so excited about […]

Banana Nut Muffins (aka. Ash’s Celebratory Muffs)

The lovely Ash and I were getting together today for some much deserved tea time and a celebration — and as such I totally needed to make celebratory mini muffins. Or “Celebration Muffs” as we are now calling them. I went with banana nut as my flavour of the day, as I had some bananas […]

Huevos Mildred

Ok.  You know how I like Tex Mex breakfast… well, I’ve gone and done it again. This time I’ve made “Huevos Mildred” — kind of like huevos rancheros, but inspired by the Huevos Monty at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen here in Toronto. The menu at Mildred’s changes all the time, but one of the constants on […]

Happy long weekend, happy Easter, happy Sunday!  […]

Kabocha Squash & Cheddar Muffins

Sundays to me are a perfect baking day. You get a baked treat for one of your meals or snacks, and you have leftovers for the rest of the week. There’s nothing like waking up on a dreary & rainy Monday morning and having homemade muffins waiting for you. These are savoury muffins, and a […]

Baked Apple Cranberry Steel Cut Oatmeal

I needed a healthy breakfast that was easy and quick in the mornings.  So I found something that I could make once and then keep around to heat quickly in the mornings and get my nutrition in without thinking!  I’d been seeing baked oatmeal all around the blogosphere, and decided I needed to make a […]

Egg Muffins

So there’s a restaurant by us that has an item on its brunch menu that always catches my eye: Egg Muffins. Which sounded so intriguing I had to ask about them. Essentially it’s Eggs Benedict without the hollandaise — and so I thought I’d make my own version of ‘Egg Muffins’ at home!
