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 […]
Catching up on a couple blog posts that were left as drafts before I took off with my kids for an 8 day trip to the interior of BC. This one is really simple, great Eggs Benedict with good pan fried potatoes at the funny little restaurant called the Coming Home Cafe in uptown New […]
On my most recent trip to the family cabin my daughter and I tried cooking scrambled eggs Gordon Ramsay style – and I would say we had some success. Have a look.
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. […]
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.

Lunch today was made by students in the Foods and Nutrition class and served to the rest of the students in the school program. Two perfectly poached eggs on a couple of potato pancakes with a side of grated carrot and apple salad. And is there anything better than 14 % sour cream? I’m telling […]

Another home cooking type of day for lunch today. I love the simplicity of a soft boiled egg, a sliced Roma tomato, and baked potato patties. Add a sprinkle of salt, a grind of pepper and I am in bliss.
My One Pot Pasta was easy but this quick and healthy breakfast one is even easier! First, I cracked two eggs into a mug! As a side note, notice how the egg yolks are such different colours? I chopped up a small piece of cheddar cheese and less than a quarter cup of the leftovers […]
On the weekend I was out for a motorcycle ride and I stopped in at Fat Jack’s Diner on the other side of Boston Bar for a late breakfast. As always, Chef Todd was masterful in his kitchen. And the little spoonful of jam? Strawberry and rhubarb preserves made from the produce of their […]
