Bacon and Eggs for Breakfast

Arguably, my favourite meal is bacon and eggs. And, I am getting to liking the texture of eggs when I cook them in cream. This time, unlike the last time I tried to cook eggs in cream, I persevered and cooked the eggs sunny side up – in the cream. Same routine, pour the cream […]

Eggs Poached in Cream

On a recent trip to the cabin I tried poaching eggs in cream and the results were pretty darn delicious. I started my breakfast prep by baking a pan of brown sugar bacon in the oven. Then I heated my non-stick skillet to a medium-low temperature before scooping a tablespoon or two of bacon fat […]

Breakfast at the Fraser Park Restaurant

I went for breakfast at the Fraser Park Restaurant on Saturday morning. I have mixed feelings about it. The restaurant is well known for massive servings of food with an emphasis on meat. I overhead the guy at the table beside me say, “I prefer quality over quantity,” and well, you certainly do a lot […]

Starbucks Carved Ham and Swiss Sandwich

I have to admit, I have not been happy with the last few breakfast sandwiches I’ve bought from Starbucks. The bacon sandwiches have seriously under cooked and stringy bacon and the roasted ham sandwiches have had an odd chemical-like smell and taste. Not a happy Starbucks customer.

Breakfast today was two eggs from the place we always stop in Agassiz fried sunny side up and perched atop a little nest of beet greens from my front yard garden. The eggs and beet greens were all sitting on a couple slices of toasted homemade wholewheat bread. The slices of tomato were store bought. […]

Red Wagon Cafe Fails to Meet Expectations 

After waiting for months and months and months to get into the Red Wagon Cafe on East Hastings Street, we finally found a moment when there wasn’t a line-up of hipsters out front of the place. And what a total and complete disappointment the entire Red Wagon Cafe experience turned out to be. First off, […]

The Ovaltine Cafe

There is good stuff happening in the Ovaltine Cafe down near Hastings and Main. Grace, formerly an employee of the original Save on Meats cafe from back when Al Deslauriers was the owner, has taken over the Ovaltine Cafe and is working hard at improving the menu and the quality of the food. Visiting the […]

Rod’s Kitchen and Grill

Rod’s Kitchen and Grill is one of those places that I frequently drive by and think about trying but is unfortunately always closed when I am travelling through the neighbourhood. The reality is that Rod’s Kitchen and Grill is open during business hours to serve the nearby working people or Skytrain commuters. So this being […]
