Sage Egg Biscuit Surprise for #twelveloaves

The Sage Egg Biscuit Surprise is a great breakfast treat and a healthy meal on it’s own. Hidden inside the biscuit is a beautiful soft boiled egg with a still runny yolk.

#twelveloaves is a great group where we bake a bread with the addition of the monthly theme, flavor or ingredient. This month we were asked to explore Thanksgiving Biscuits and Rolls. In Canada, Thanksgiving has come and gone already but who does not love a good biscuit, I had to join in the fun. I fell in love with this Sage Egg Biscuit Surprise recipe and it may be a better Thanksgiving Brunch option for you.

Crab Louie Salad, the healthy San Francisco Treat?

Featured in menus of reputable San Francisco & Portland restaurants since the early 1900s, this crab meat salad is a typical example of a locally sourced West Coast salad.

In Canada we are about to embark on our first long weekend of the summer. Monday is called Victoria Day (or National Patriot Day in Quebec). The weather is looking relatively nice and I will do my first trip to the cottage on Sunday. It’s the perfect time to start eating a bit lighter to for the summer and enjoy lovingly prepared fancy salads. I came across this West Coast classic and just had to give it a try, the Crab Louie Salad.

Two unexpect-egg cocktails: Green Tea and Apple Harvest Sours

You will crack in love for these two sour egg cocktails which are topped with a frothy egg white foam: Green Tea and Apple Harvest Sours.

The concept of using eggs in a cocktail may sound odd but you will love for the frothy white topping and the protein you will get from a boozy treat. Egg cocktails are nothing new, the most classic one being the Pisco Sour. Here are 2 modern drinks; a nice refreshing one with the taste of green tea and another with crisp notes of fall with apples.

Looking for a bit to eat with these luscious drinks? Here is an unusual quick recipe that will please the taste buds: Banana Cheddar and Cinnamon Pinwheels. Find it at the end of the post.

Mother’s Day Brunch and Creamy Lentil Salad

I hope all the mothers out there enjoyed a wonderful Happy Mother’s Day this past weekend. I always have my parents over that day. We used to do it in the evening but this was our 3rd year with an earlier brunch format which I love. Instead of serving the plates in the kitchen, everything is laid out on the table.

Since I prepare several dishes I usually surf the net for inspiration. I wanted to thank all the bloggers who’s recipes inspired this years brunch. Clik on the links for the recipe. I did prepare a Creamy Lentil Salad of my own too. It really was a way to use up leftovers and it was success. use what every veggies you have at home.

Breakfast Pizza for Food N Flix

Do you sometimes re-watch a movie you just adored in your teen years to see if you still feel the same way? I do occasionally. Sometimes they are still good, sometimes not. There is one movie however that never fails to live up to my original satisfaction and it just so happens that this particular film is this month’s Food ‘n Flix choice. OK enough suspense, the movie is The Breakfast Club.

Now there are not many food references in the movie besides the title and the scene of the lunch break but inspiration came easy. What do teenagers like to eat? Junk food, especially pizza. What is the most important meal of the day? Breakfast of course. So I think this Breakfast Pizza would be a hit with all pre and post pubescents.

Creative Cooking Crew: Ultraviolet Light Lunch

The Creative Cooking Crew is back again with an very interesting challenge for June. The theme is 1 Color for the plate. And here was my thought process:

Great concept! What color should I pick? What color should I not pick to avoid duplicate choices as much as possible?  D*?% it I am stuck. I have to do something totally out there. Google, help me?

And I knew I had found an instant winner when I landed on an article about food that glows under a black light. OK so I am bending the rules a bit because technically it’s not a color…but it’s a luminescent ultraviolet meal resulting in one color on my plate!

Huevos Rancheros with a Roasted Tomato Salsa

—-Sorry I have been MIA. Was planning on catching up on comments this weekend following a crazy week…and then Saturday I had a minor flooding issues and had to evacutate my place as 7 industrial fans dry up my place. So I’ll be back to commenting asap! —-

Way before this blog, way before I realised where my passion for ethnic food would take me, I bought a Mexican cookbook like 20 years ago, ironically from an Australian publication house!?!? I was really excited about cooking up some Latin flavors but I got discouraged rather fast once I really flipped through the pages. All the recipes had the craziest and longest list of ingredients. There were so many elaborate steps. I think I never actually made a single recipe in the end.

So I shyed away from making Mexican food for so long. Now I know better. There are very simple recipes that are absolutely bursting with flavor. Take for example the humble Huevos Rancheros with Roasted Tomato Salsa dish.
