Now for the sweet (and beautiful) crepe! Along with making the Green Onion Parmesan Crepe for our CTV Morning Live Mother’s Day special, we decided these red velvet crepes would be another great option. Not only are they delicious, but the vibrant colour looks quite impressive if I do say so myself!

I had this for breakfast…don’t judge me.
Come on, it’s not that bad, plenty of dairy, fruit, some carbs, a little sugar to get that blood pressure up, add in a cup off coffee and you’re ready for an epic day.

I have some exciting news to share with everyone – I’ve recently accepted a new job in the world of potash and phosphate. While I am very excited to start my new role, I’m sad to say fair well to colleagues and friends at my current job in transportation. A good friend at work has been requesting cannolis for a while, so I knew I had to make them for her on my last day (even though I know we will stay friends, we just won’t be seeing each other every day). These were a bit scary for me to make as I’ve never eaten a cannoli in my life, so I had nothing to compare it to and it involved using oil to fry the cannoli pastries (reference: Bob’s disaster with frying pastry), but hey, sometimes you just have to jump off the cliff and hope you fly. This time it worked out in my favour and they actually were way easier to make than I thought. Let’s get to the recipe. Continue reading
As with most people, what I eat is often dictated by what I have left in my fridge. In this case it was Greek yogurt and blood oranges. Peeling the orange, and tossing them into a bowl, I sweetened it with some honey and added a drizzle of chocolate balsamic vinegar for some pizzazz, and had myself a wonderful breakfast!

Nothing says Valentines Day like coffee cake right? Well for me, it’s a simple equation, COFFEE = LOVE, so when my girlfriend Megan (The Microwave Master) had to figure out what to get me for Valentines Day, she settled on baking me a coffee cake! Given that she has only baked for me once during our nearly three year relationship, it was sure to be an undertaking! Initially she was going to make it as a surprise, but since I was in charge of supper, and already at her house, we made it together, which was 100% better, because i’m always bugging her to cook with me! It was a wonderful gift, and while I didn’t have my camera on me at the time, I made sure to get some photos the next day so I could document this beautiful cake, and create Megan’s FIRST BLOG POST! YAAAA! Maybe she will become a food blogger too! (Pig’s can fly right?).
Anyways, here is the recipe, slightly modified from The Tasty Bite’s Buttermilk Coffee Cake.

How this pie came about was a bit strange because for some odd reason I was craving a Banana Cream Pie or a Coconut Cream Pie (I think I’ll make that one next), but I’ve never had a slice of Banana Cream Pie in my life; or not that I can remember anyways. Regardless of where this craving came from, I hustled into the kitchen to whip up my first Banana Cream Pie. Let’s get to the recipe so you can satisfy your own cravings. Continue reading
I’ve always really liked carrot cake, but I’ve never actually made it before. This is likely because it’s one of my grandma’s specialities. However the calling came for a traditional dessert for a family dinner, I decided to give it a whirl and I’m quite happy with the results! It’s a classic homemade carrot cake that’s promised to make everyone happy. Continue reading

This post is like a recipe and public service announcement all in one, read carefully, this could save you from disaster. Actually.
I should also mention, I didn’t make these with the intention of posting them on the blog, but after it was all said and done, I had to share the story, so I snapped some photos with my iPhone. (Thank god I didn’t have my actual camera on me! You’ll find out why, soon enough)
What began as an exciting foray into the cuisine of Spain, became a harrowing tale of disaster and determination, in what has become the scariest thing I have ever cooked.
