Are you an Eatie? Well if you are, then you probably know what it means to be hangry, a food scold, a vegivore, or eat something completely beige.
Ever seen the word “Mono & Diglycerides” on the side of your much loved box of you-name-it and wonder, what is that??? Well then you are in luck! Starting today I’m going to start to demystify your food ingredients & tell you what it’s supposed to be doing in your food!
I know for me, it happened, (and still happens) ALL of the time. And sure, maybe this is one of the many reasons why I need to move out… but till I do, I’m finding fault with the food companies and for that matter, the government too! Take a look at the photo below and you may have an idea about what I’m talking about, or click continue reading & I’ll set up the scenario for you.
You know what’s kind of sad, but only to people who hate breakfast. Is that if I made a series called what I ate for [INSERT MEAL]. It would probably be a lot more “breakfast” than “dinner”. So… I guess what I’m really trying to say here is that I love breakfast….
So today on “What I ate for [INSERT MEAL]”, I present to you all Cinnamon French Toast Sandwich
This is a french toast is made with cinnamon bread and filled with cream cheese and berry jam. Can you say yummy??? Want to try this out too? Then press continue reading!
As the 2011 slowly draws to a close, we can look back and think… hey, what happened this past year? For those of you who forgot there were a TON of “epic” events & some that didn’t even include any bacon at all!
2011's out and 2012 in
‘Tis the season for another work potluck. I’m not sure why my company doesn’t have a larger Holiday Party, but as a coworker pointed out to me today. Something is better than nothing! So very very true….
For this potluck I was told to not make anything sweet (they had bought a cake) so instead I decided to make a pasta salad with green onion dressing. It looked a little something like this…
I based this recipe off of one I found HERE (the Food Network website). However I did change it up a bit. Not because it looked bad, I just didn’t want to go out and buy ingredients. Continue on to learn how to create this wonderful recipe yourself!
My sister said people would be interested in this, I truly hope she’s right.
I have a secret… sometimes, I cook. I know, I claim to only know how to bake, but then I make things that look (and taste) pretty decent. So, today ladies and gentlemen, (assuming men read this blog), I present to you “What I ate for dinner”:
Grilled Chicken with Quinoa Stir Fry
Continue reading for a recipe & a quick lesson on how to defrost chicken…
It’s been a while since I’ve actually baked something for this blog… I guess that’s what happens when you bake at work all the time! Honestly, I’d say the worst part of working in product development is that everything I do make is confidential (such a bummer, I know). With the holidays coming up, in my house we’ve been preparing goody bags to give to friends, family & most importantly coworkers. That brings me to today’s food science recipe, which comes to us from the Sobey’s Holiday 2011 Inspire magazine (although we switched out the macadamia nuts for more green… pepitas!). The science part comes into play when you start to think about all of the different things you can make with just sugar & water! From rock candy, to taffy, to fudge and syrups. The difference between them is the sugar concentration, cooking temperature and how much it has been stirred (plus a couple other key variables). If you have ever made fudge before (which I have not) you probably know how HARD it is! or fudgey? I mean, it sounds hard… apparently there is a lot of stirring. But don’t worry! There’s a lot less stirring going on in this recipe, so click continue reading and try it out!
