Bob and I are always excited when CTV contacts us about being on their Morning Live TV show. Themed cooking seems to be our TV calling and this time it was all in the spirit of luuuuurve for Valentine’s Day or Singles Awareness Day – however you choose to celebrate it. So what says love better than two perfect little red velvet whoopie pie cookies sandwiched together with the love of a cream cheese filling! You can even oomph up the love factor and cut them into adorable little hearts (*insert ‘awwww’ or ‘gag’ here*) Mmmmm…. either way, red velvet just sounds just delightful to me! Let’s get to the recipe so you can make these for your someone special. 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.
To continue on our holiday donut theme for CTV Morning Live Saskatoon, here is the Mistletoe donut to go along side The Relative and Santa’s Milk & Cookies. Now you are probably wondering… ‘what the heck… why is it a mistletoe donut?’….well with this little donut packing some Kahlua and Skor Toffee bits, it’s rather easy to read between the lines and maybe if you have a little bit of Kahlua and you’re under the mistletoe, you’ll “skor” (…a kiss…). Now let’s get to this feisty little donut.
If you’ve been following our Facebook Page, you might know that we’ve been asked by CTV Morning Live Saskatoon (a local news station in our city) to come on air to do a cooking segment. When Bob & I got the news we were pretty excited and started racking our brains for what we could make under their requested theme of “Grey Cup Party”. We knew we should stick to our classics with Bob covering the grilled cheese front and myself, tackling the cupcakes. But my brain had a bit of a “food block” – how can you make a cupcake appropriate for a football party?? Now here was my thought pattern: football…party…manly men yelling at a TV…beer….pretzels...okay, now let’s combine them into something sweet, salty and decadent: The Beer Buddy Cupcake – a beer infused chocolate cupcake topped with a Salted Caramel Buttercream and garnished with pretzels. Voila! Game day appropriate cupcakes! Now let’s get to the recipe…
Initially, when asked to do a cooking segment on CTV Morning Live we were going to do something holiday inspired (those recipes will be coming in the near future!). But when they mentioned doing something Grey Cup inspired, I thought PERFECT I can make an epic grilled cheese inspired by one of the many game day appies people love! Well what goes hand in hand with cheese other than a grilled cheese? Nachos of course! So I present the Doritos encrusted Loaded Nacho “Game Day” Grilled Cheese! It’s a wild one so get ready!
