Baked eggs have been on my food bucket list for quite some time now, although I don’t actually have a food bucket list (it’s more just a mental list). Maybe I should start one and share it with you guys? We can eat our way through it together! Now i’m on to something…

Whenever “ooey gooey, runny egg yolk” is involved in a recipe, say no more! I WANT IT! Not to mention, bacon AND cheese! Like seriously, what am I doing to myself?! Now I was having a bit of an internal struggle with this grilled cheese, deciding, hmmm should I put a hashbrown in it, or would that be too much? After all these epic grilled cheeses, I was leaning towards excluding it, I mean how much can my body take!?! Of course I consulted with Carlene, and she insisted I put a hashbrown in it…well I guess that’s part of a complete breakfast right!? Clearly she doesn’t care about my health…

We were recently contacted by Cookin’ Greens to develop a recipe for their upcoming appearance (March 24th) on the Dragons’ Den, where they will be presenting their innovative “farm-to-freezer” product line. Given that we have the power of two minds behind BS’ in the Kitchen, we were asked to tackle the meanest of all the “Dragons” Mr. Kevin O’Leary! Our challenge was to create an O’Leary inspired appetizer using Cookin’ Greens Chopped Spinach.
Here is what we made (Deep Fried Spinach Ravioli stuffed with Spinach and Ricotta). Of course they can be boiled, rather than fried (I actually think I prefer them boiled!).

I’m slightly addicted to Pinterest (no, that’s a lie. I’m addicted….) and I kept on seeing pins with cauliflower pizza crust, cauliflower bites, cauliflower imitating bread everywhere! After seeing so many of these pins I thought I’d put one to the test and landed on a recipe for Cauliflower Garlic Cheese “Bread” Sticks that looked pretty good so I gave it a whirl. Continue reading

Being new to collard greens, I am quite the fan, the large, hearty leaves make a great vegetable side dish, or a great vehicle for other ingredients! Although I kind of failed at this being a healthy recipe (see: bacon & cheese), using a collard green as a wrap instead of your typical tortilla style wrap, is a great low carb alternative! Of course if you want deprive yourself, you can take out the bacon and cheese, making it uber healthy! I say spoil yourself though, put the good stuff in!

Although this isn’t necessarily a traditional Eggs Florentine (as it doesn’t have any sauce to go with it), it does stay true to “Florentine” which is used to describe a dish with spinach. Regardless of semantics, this was one tasty combo! I mean, I was expecting it to be good; crunchy hashbrown topped with sauteed spinach, feta cheese and topped with a fried egg, running it’s yolk all over the place. You’ve got a win right there. But this was just awesome! All the flavours came together so well. The textures complemented each other, the saltiness of the feta went great with the spinach. I will definitely be making this again!

Even though I love salad, for whatever reason, I never make it for myself. With that realization, I decided it was time to experiment. After tossing some ideas around (bad pun?), this is what I came up with!

It has finally arrived…the infamous Souffle!
I knew at some point during JC100 this recipe was going to show up in our inbox, and though slightly terrified, I was very excited to try my hand at it! Now I’ve gotta have a little sympathy for the poor old souffle, it’s gotten a pretty bad rep as being a difficult dish to make, but it really is quite simple and I can happily say mine turned out wonderfully! (Admittedly, I have never had a souffle, but after researching a little I think the flavours and textures were spot on!)
