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 […]

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 […]

Roasted Root Veggie Pie

Roasted Root Vegetable & Leek Pie in a Whole Wheat Crust

This pie is based on my WWII Woolton Pie.  As back during WWII, the British were eating under food rationing, they often made pies with a lid and no bottom crust.  We’ve gotten used to it around here, and do most of our savoury pies with only a top crust.  If you want a double […]

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!

Tex-Mex Breakfast Tortilla Cups

Remember the Tortilla Scoops with Spicy Nectarine Salsa we made as appetizers for my Pampered Chef party?  Well these are a breakfast version, inspired by the great deliciousness of baking tortillas in a muffin tin, filled with stuff.  I turned these into Tex-Mex breakfast nibbles, by stuffing them with spicy refried beans, sharp old cheddar, […]

Cheddar & Chive Polenta Muffins

Guess what I invented? Cheddar & Chive Polenta Muffins: And ohhh are they good. As soon as I had the batter mixed I knew they were good, and all my suspicions were reinforced when they were baking.  Nothing else smells this good baking.  Mmmm.  (As a heads up, they may look done at around 20-25 […]

Morel Mushroom Mac ‘n Cheese

So the boyfriend and I got thoroughly spoiled. We were gifted a gorgeous Emile Henry ceramic stew pot, and what to do with it other than welcome it to our home with Macaroni and Cheese? It can go on the stovetop and in the oven, and I’m using it for everything!  As you can see, […]

Acorn Squash & Chickpea Crumble with Collard Greens

There’s a veggie food blog I read, Food Blog and The Dog (Cook Eat Live Vegetarian), where somehow, every post is something I want to eat.  This was especially true of the Butternut Squash and Chickpea Crumble with Caramelised Onions, Cream Cheese & Oaty Cheddar Topping.  Which looked so divine, I had to make it […]

Whole Wheat Crêpes with Collards and Cheddar

So earlier this week, I had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (just like Alexander).  I found out that I didn’t get into the school program I was hoping to start in September (boo!) so I needed consolation food.  And the answer?  Whole Wheat Crêpes with Collard Greens and Cheddar. You could even […]

English Rarebit

One last recipe in the installment of Cottage Recipes: English Rarebit… or my take on it anyway. Over in the UK, you can find a cheesy snack on most pub menus: Welsh Rarebit (or Welsh Rabbit), toasted bread covered with a molten cheddar cheese/ale/mustard mixture.  A similar concept is English Rarebit, made with wine instead […]
