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…

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and so is another BS’ in the Kitchen CTV Morning Live – Saskatoon appearance! This time, we have settled on the theme of “Breakfast in Bed” for our Mother’s Day special! After discussing it with Carlene, we decided crepes would be the way to go. They are easy to make, very versatile, and will impress that hard working mother in your life! Carlene is going to be cooking up some sweet red velvet crepes, and since not all mothers have a breakfast sweet tooth, I decided to make a savoury crepe recipe!

In pursuit of all things cheesy, Spanakopita was one of the many things that came to mind. Not only does it contain one of my favourite ingredient pairings (spinach, garlic, and onions), it contains not one, but TWO types of cheese, feta and ricotta! It’s hard to beat all these things combined into beautifully flaky phyllo dough. BUT in the name of gourmet grilled cheese, I scrapped that flaky phyllo for buttery, crunchy, toasted bread, and created the Spanakopita Grilled Cheese! A creamy, garlicy, spinachy, salty, crunchy piece of heaven worthy of the pallette of Poseidon (why is there no Greek God of Spanakopita?!?)!

Rather than try and combine both posts into one, I decided to create another one, as some people might be turned off by the idea of deep fried ravioli, and not notice that you can boil these into healthier, delicious ravioli!
Start off by making this Spinach Pasta Dough, once that is made proceed to the recipe.

In a continuation of the delicious spinach pasta dough I made, here is another great use for it! To make the pasta, check out the Spinach Pasta Dough post. Once you have made the dough follow these instructions:

A Kevin O’Leary inspired recipe, a strange thing you might think? Turns out he provided great inspiration for this tasty dish!
This is what we know about Kevin.
- He can be a little full of himself from time to time…
- He certainly “brings the heat” to hopeful entrepreneurs
- He is all about the “green” (a.k.a $$$$)
- His favourite restaurant in Toronto serves Italian food
- He is a wine connoisseur
Well it’s obvious isn’t it?! We need to make an appetizer that’s full of itself, can handle the heat, is green, perhaps Italian, and maybe even has some wine in it! So it came to be, The Kevin O’Leary, a.k.a Deep Fried Ravioli Stuffed with Spinach & Ricotta, served with a Spicy Tomato Sauce!

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!).

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!

With the holidays around the corner, appetizers are a much needed item at any get together, so why not spend a little extra time and make some delicious homemade ones? Better yet, get some friends together, make a large batch, have some drinks and have yourself an appie making party! As part of our holiday inspired cooking segment on CTV Morning Live – Saskatoon, tomorrow morning (December 18th – 8:30AM), I tossed around a few different ideas, but ultimately decided on creating these Roasted Garlic, Spinach & Bacon Rangoon appetizers, and boy am I glad I did! They are DEELISH!
