The Relative | Peanut Butter Baked Donut

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.

I’ve been on a big pulse kick lately and trying to find unique and creative ways to add these super foods into my diet. Also, I feel very guilty for living in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan which produces 99% of Canada’s lentil and chickpea crops and 67%  of Canada’s dry pea crop, yet I don’t really know how to re-hyrdrate them, cook or bake with them. So this is a continuation of my adventures! These little lentil bars taste freaking awesome and are packed full of goodness making them great for a grab-n-go breakfast, fuel/recovery snack for athletes or just a healthy, gluten-free snack. In true BS fashion, let’s get to the recipe… Continue reading

If anyone follows lots of food blogs, you would have seen the trend of peanut butter pie. These have been in support of an American food blogger, Jennie, who lost her husband Mikey to a heart attack. There’s been a surge of PB Pie recipes, not only to show support and love for for Jennie and her family, but to also reflect on those special people in your life. So let’s get to this delicious recipe for Pumped-Up Peanut Butter Pie.

Pad Thai

During a recent dinner date I decided that we should ‘travel’ to the exotic land of Thailand with the creation of Pad Thai! This was one of my first adventures into ‘ethnic cuisine’ and I have to say it turned out relatively well. Now, let’s sit back, relax and enjoy a savoury dish of pad thai:

Vintage Peanut Butter Cookies

During his visit, the LD also requested peanut butter cookies (actually he’s been requesting these for a while, but I haven’t had the time to bake them). In the process of making these cookies, I discovered that finding a base recipe for classic peanut butter cookies is actually fairly challenging. So if you’re looking for a spin on the traditional PB Cookie, they are definitely out there and a simple Taste Spotting or Food Gawker search will find them.

Peanut Chicken Chow Mein

This is a recipe I had made a while ago when trying to find out how to use up some old noodles in my pantry, but never had great pictures of it.

For my version I cut out a few ingredients because I didn’t have it around the house, but here is what I did.
