Curried Hash with Poached Eggs and Herbed Olive Oil

Curried Rutabaga Hash

There are lazy mornings. Sleepy mornings. Mornings that beg for runny yolks and starchy taters (or Rutabaga in this case) fried up with onions. This is most true on cold and grey mornings. 

This is especially true in the late fall as temperatures drop. The dulled colors of dying grass covered in a light film of frost. The light is muted and grey. The air even smells different brought on by the decaying leaves on the ground. Even the crispness of the air is dulled by the fact that the atmosphere hovers just above and below freezing varying by any given hour. The trees are stark, managing a majestic presence and vulnerability at the same time. 

Curried Hash with Herbed Oil

These are the mornings that cause you to put on extra cozy socks and a sweater before wrapping your hands around that perfect cup of coffee while the smell of onions and root veggies waft through the house. These are the mornings that command a hot breakfast that won’t leave you craving anything for many hours to come. Continue Reading →

Perfect Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes
It’s almost impossible not to eat well in the summer. The bounty of fruits and vegetables is endless – all at the height of their flavor. We have been enjoying plums immensely, but today’s breakfast idea will pair great with just about any fruit or berry.

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes! This is the ultimate weekend breakfast if you ask me. Doesn’t fresh seasonal fruit just SCREAM for ricotta!

My first experience with lemon ricotta pancakes was during a stint working for Brad Lazarenko at Culina Restaurant. It was our Saturday brunch special. That was over 10 years ago now, but the memory of it is still rich in my mind.

3 Ingredient Savory Pancakes

Broccoli and Egg Pancakes

3 ingredient savory pancakes!

Actually, it’s better than that. 3 ingredient healthy pancakes.

How freakin’ awesome is that?

Now other than their shape, they have very little in common with the North American breakfast staple. In fact, they are almost the opposite. These pancakes will stabilize blood sugar levels instead of sending it through the roof, like your typical dose of diabetes on a plate.

With a base of broccoli and eggs, these pancakes are healthy, veggie packed, protein rich and loaded with omega 3s and totally satisfying. I even threw in a little turmeric for the benefits of curcumin. They also happen to be gluten free, grain free,  and they definitely don’t need syrup.

Unbelievable Chocolate Coconut Brownies

Is it bad to eat 6 brownies in between lunch and dinner?

It can’t be good right?

Unless of course they are delicious brownies. After all, I have had some bad brownies in my time. Some dried out wannabe version of a brownie. Crumbly, flavorless. or worse, “too sweet they stick to the teeth and I need 2 glasses of milk to swallow it down” brownies. Then there are the failed attempts at making healthy brownies. There are a surprising amount of those out there. Blah. Nasty. I have been not only the victim of said failed brownies, but the creator as well!

As you might already know, not everything I make is considered healthy. Especially when you consider all the different food circles that exist out there. And you know what? That’s ok by me. Everyone’s got their own version of what is healthy. Some say paleo, others say primal, or vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, grain free, traditional diets (WAP), allergy free…the list goes on. Mine is simply to stick to real food/whole food and try for moderation.

Warm Spinach Salad with Bacon, Mushrooms and a Poached Egg

We are completely addicted to Tannadice bacon and these farm eggs we get from the bakery on the corner of our street. I wish every farm could be like Tannadice. Check out their website to learn about their ethical practices.  Let me tell ya,  healthy pig makes for ridiculously tasty bacon. It really does make a difference. I’ve actually woken up in the middle of the night thinking about their bacon. Sad I know, but it didn’t only happen one night but it actually happened 2 nights in a row.

When you’re dreaming about bacon, you best be cooking with bacon.

That led me here. To making this salad.
