Thickened heavy cream, also known as malai, is amazing slathered on scones and toast. It is easy to make and is a decadent treat.…
Today’s a special day. It’s Q’s birthday! How is my baby already 9?!
One of Q’s favourite things to eat, besides sushi and peking duck, is crepes. Who could blame him? Those ruffly golden wrappers are the perfect vessel for Nutella and bananas. Naturally this my little foodie’s birthday breakfast request.
Breakfasts made easy with Hamilton Beach

As the kids head back to school, and we start worrying about what to pack for snacks and lunches, one meal that cannot be forgotten is breakfast. Let’s face it, sometimes the kids don’t eat at school. There are more important things to do sometimes and the last thing we want to see is an uneaten lunch.
That’s why, making sure that the kids have a good breakfast is so important. We may not be able to control what they do and don’t eat at school, but we can make sure that they head to school with full bellies.
Hamilton Beach makes breakfasts easy with items like their Breakfast Sandwich Maker and Skillet.
Cheddar and Chive Scones
Mother’s Day is a week away and what better way to celebrate than with brunch. Scones are always popular for breakfast or brunch but not every mother has a sweet tooth. These Cheddar and Chive Scones are perfect for those that prefer savoury over sweet.
Drop scones are my favourite kind of scone to make. They are super easy and the perfect dish for the kids to make. They are made with cream and come together so quick and easy. Just dump everything into a bowl, stir and drop the batter onto a baking tray. Seriously.
Baked French Toast…in a Mug
Do dishes taste better in individual portions? I had baked french toast on my mind and was happy to test out this theory when I received four Meal Mugs from CorningWare.
These CorningWare Meal Mugs were perfect for individual servings of this baked french toast. Imagine these on Christmas morning, each member of the family with their own mug of deliciousness. Make them the night before and let them sit in the fridge. Pop them in a pre-heated oven in the morning and you have a warm, tasty breakfast. Top them with your faves – whipping cream, maple syrup, icing sugar, fruit, nuts – the options are endless. The baked french toast can also be made in the microwave, you just won’t get the toasty bits on top, but is just as tasty (see the mug in the bottom right above)!
These mugs are great! They are made of durable stoneware material whose non-porous surface does not absorb food odours, flavours or stains. The mugs are dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer and microwave safe and if you pre-heat the oven, you can stick them in there too! Their vented lids, which are patented, allow the steam to escape and are BPA-free and can be used in the microwave and the dishwasher. These are perfect for soups, and stews and on some days, large cups of much needed coffee.
You can find these mugs at the following retailers: Amazon.ca, Walmart Canada, Loblaws, Home Outfitters, London Drug and www.shopworldkitchen.com.
Make sure you participate in the #MealMug Twitter Party for your chance to win your own mugs. You can RSVP here for the December 15th event taking place at 7-8pm MST.
