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

I don’t eat peanut butter very often, but when I do, I LOVE peanut butter and banana sandwiches as well as peanut butter and honey sandwiches. So when I saw this recipe on Foodgawker which combined all of that into a FRENCH TOAST I knew it was going down!

After making the Pan-Fried Dumplings and having more filling then wonton wrappers I needed to make something with the leftover filling, so I settled on vermicelli!

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:

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. Since it was so easy and delicious I wanted to make sure I made it again and put it on the blog! You can find the original recipe here: Thai Peanut Stir Fry
For my version I cut out a few ingredients because I didn’t have it around the house, but here is what I did.
