Let’s start off with some confession time.
Confession: I have never had a lobster roll.
Now that I’ve got that off my chest we can proceed.

Mmmm mmmm mmM! What a grilled cheese! Gooey cheese, crunchy potatoes, all my favourite parts of scalloped potatoes, in my favourite kind of sandwich! I gotta say potatoes certainly do go well in grilled cheese sandwiches (see Baked Potato Grilled Cheese). Now for me, the best part of scalloped potatoes is the crunchy potatoes you get on the side and the top, so that’s what I was looking to emphasize (and boy did I ever!). If you love the creaminess of scalloped potatoes, all you have to do is either, cook the potatoes less, so they’re not as crunchy, or boil down a quick creamy sauce with milk, butter, and flour to go in the grilled cheese. I almost want to make another right now just to try a saucier version!

Lobster grilled cheese…really? YES. Rich meaty lobster chunks, surrounded by melting cheese, and toasty buttered bread…this was one rich, tasty sandwich! The idea for this one stemmed from thought of lobster mac & cheese which seems to be fairly popular, although I have never had it! That may need to change.

Sometimes i’m just not in the mood for an epic grilled cheese masterpiece, sometimes I need subtlety, sometimes I need simple, sometimes I need “The Slim”. A tiny, crunchy, cheesy, delicious treat that’s not going to reduce my lifespan.
The goal of this sandwich is not to be slim as in healthy, it’s more about the slimness of the bread. When sliced this way and buttered up, you get this amazing super crunchy exterior, surrounding the melted cheese. Imagine eating a potato chip stuffed with melted cheese (wow that would be awesome), this is my ode to that vision.

I have a “bad blogger” moment to admit to: Before Christmas time I made roughly 150+ perogies and ate them all… yes all of them… k well not all of them because I did share a few dozen with friends and family… but the large majority….. without taking a single picture of them or blogging them. Now full of blogger shame, this past weekend I decided to whip up another batch. However, I must be clinically insane because I’ve made over 300 perogies with this ginormous batch. So everyone can expect one thing: more perogy recipes will be appearing on the blog. Who knows – maybe I will be the Perogy Princess while Bob is the Grilled Cheese King. Let’s get to this ethnic hybrid of perogies! Continue reading

One of my good friends Lauren just celebrated her 30th birthday. Now, Lauren is one of the hardest working women I know. She works an office job and is also a professional photographer (and voted as our city’s best in 2012), so I knew she needed an extra special cake to help celebrate this milestone birthday! After seeing an ombre cake on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to give one whirl. Now, don’t fret if you are thinking “that is way too detailed and complicated for me”. It’s not. It’s actually way easier than you think. Let’s get to the recipe, so I can show you how to make your own ombre cake! Continue reading

Bob and I are quite excited that CTV Morning Live Saskatoon has invited us back to do another cooking segment. This time the challenge shifted to a holiday inspired dish, so with Bob’s rangoon and pumpkin pie dumpling, I knew I’d have to counteract the savoury with a sweeter dish. Now lots of people were asking for cupcakes, but I knew I had to branch out because I didn’t want to be known as the “cupcake girl”… so what’s the next dessert trend? Donuts! I opted for baked donuts for a few reasons: a tad bit healthier, no chances of oil fires and a bit easier too. I’ll be decorating just one donut on air, but I’ll chat about these three donut flavours: Santa’s Milk & Cookies, The Mistletoe and The Relative. But let’s get to the recipe.

It’s hard to believe fall is really here. I might take some heat for saying this, but fall is my favourite season for numerous reasons – warm weather, crisp mornings and nights, beautiful fall colors, my favourite fashion season (hello boots!) and warm and inviting spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove all seem to make an appearance during fall. This recipe for Apple Butter and Whole Wheat Biscuits is a great way to welcome in fall and use up some of your apple harvest. So let’s get to this easy recipe! Continue reading
