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, […]

Roasted Acorn Squash & Pear Soup

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 […]

Butternut Squash & Caramelised Onion Galette

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 […]

Solveig’s Pickled Red Onions

Molly Katzen says these pickled onions “keep practically indefinitely” in the fridge, but I don’t think a batch will last you that long.

Mung Bean Latkes

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 […]

Tortilla Scoops with Spicy Nectarine Salsa

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 […]
