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!
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, […]
Dear Soup, How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. 1) You are magic. Somehow, soup as a whole is always better than the sum of its parts. You put veggies in a pot with some water, and they come out tasting incredible. Magic. 2) You make me love winter. Because who doesn’t […]
I used one of my favourite spicy peppers here: chipotle in adobo (smoked jalapeno peppers in a tomato sauce).
I have one last Ethiopian stew for you: the Ye’Miser Wat (Spicy Red Lentil Stew) that I served as a part of my Ethiopian dinner, seen here at the bottom of the injera platter, along with the Ye’Takelt Allecha (Gingery Root Vegetables), Ye’Abesha Gomen (Mild Collard Greens), Lemony Arugula Salad in the centre, and a wee […]
If you’ve got your Niter Kibbeh all ready to go, what you need now is your spice blend. You can buy Berbere already made at Ethiopian groceries, as either a dry spice blend or a paste. Or you can make your own and make your kitchen smell divine. The Niter Kibbeh is a spiced oil, […]
On Thanksgiving weekend we were lucky enough to get an invite up to our friends’ cottage — perfectly situated on a lake surrounded by beautiful falling orange, yellow, and red leaves, and smelling and feeling like Fall. I was in charge of dinner one night, and wanted to make something “Thanksgiving-y” that wasn’t traditional Thanksgiving […]
Molly Katzen says these pickled onions “keep practically indefinitely” in the fridge, but I don’t think a batch will last you that long.
So what’s a girl to do with leftover mung beans? (Holy cow, a small amount dried turns into a huge amount of cooked mung beans!) Why, make latkes of course! These would probably be better called fritters, patties, or even croquettes (like my White Bean, Parsley & Chive Croquettes!), but the texture and smell reminds […]
Ok, for one last blast of summer entertaining, you need to make these. I hosted a Pampered Chef party this summer, along with my Mum and my friend Heather, where we made these amazing appetizers. And they are the easiest and most-impressive little delicious nibbles. So now you get the recipe! We used nectarines, green […]
