This morning I returned home from a run in the falling snow, dreaming of eggs poached in tomato sauce.
Now that you know How to Make Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs Every Time, you can make yourself one of my favourite recipes on the planet — Sundried Tomato & Scallion Egg Salad. I have quite a sentimental attachment to this egg salad — it’s a recipe that Mr. KitchenOperas used to serve at his café, where […]
Happiest New Year! It seems to be that time of year when we’re all resolving to eat better… which around here means whole foods, lots of veggies, and choosing foods that give you lots of nutrients! One of the first things I do to make sure I make good choices, is to stock my kitchen […]
So the fiancé picked up some gorgeous raspberries from “The Berry Guy”, and I got to do something with them. An excellent plan. Just like I did for my Gluten-Free Roasted Rhubarb & Strawberry Polenta Cake, I opened up Nigel Slater’s Tender, Volume 2 (it’s the fruit book, Volume 1 is the veggie one), and thought […]
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 […]
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!
You know how I said that my Whole Wheat Toblerone Cookies were my favourite cookies ever? Move over Toblerone Cookies, there’s a new Whole Wheat Cookie in town – the Whole Wheat Compost Cookie. I’ve been hearing a lot about Christina Tosi and the amazing treats she’s whipping up at Momofuku Milk Bar in New […]
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, […]
You know you’ve got a best friend when she demands a birthday post… so in her honour I present Cranberry & Chocolate Banana Cookies of Birthday Celebration!
So by now (if you are a regular Kitchen Operas reader) you probably know all about my friend Louise. You know, my foodie friend who made macarons with me, who introduced me to turning squash into “jam”, who convinced me I could poach an egg, who has mulberry and quince trees (!), who likes all […]
