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 […]

Raspberries & Cream Ice Slice

So the fiancé picked up some gorgeous raspberries from “The Berry Guy”, and I got to do something with them.  An excellent plan.

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.

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, […]

White Bean, Parsley & Chive Croquettes with Arugula & Horseradish Sauce

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 […]
