Tortilla Rollups (aka “Prairie Sushi”) The first time I ever had a tortilla rollup was in the nineties. My new-friend-at-the-time Hyacinth had made a bunch of the little numbers and brought them to a get-together to which I’d been invited. I didn’t know very many people at the get-together and I was so shy and nervous that I just stood in the kitchen next to Hyacinth’s Tupperware container and ate her tortilla rollups till I bloated. Wasn’t that a beautiful story? Pip & Ebby - Pip & Ebby - Hot cocoa cookies I am a teeny bit obsessed with the cookies from the most recent issue of EveryDay with Rachael Ray magazine. This recipe is the second of many cookie recipes on my list to make this holiday season. Sweets are taking over my life! Just ask my coworkers. They get my leftovers, and I think they are starting to resent the way I am forcing them to eat sinful treats.
The Comfort of Eggs in a Basket Eggs in a basket was the first meal I ever cooked. I was in 5th grade, and it was a Sunday morning at my best friend's house after a sleepover. We woke up hungry, and for some reason his parents weren't home. This confused me--my parents would never do that--but more important than confusion was the fact that I was terribly hungry, and I didn't see how that problem was going to be solved, since his house never had any cereal in it. "We'll make eggs in a basket," my friend said, pulling out a loaf of bread, a jug of oil, and a carton of eggs. You mean, we'll be cooking?

Slow Roasted Tomato BLT For the last little while we have been in the middle of tomato season where the field tomatoes are perfectly sun ripened and just packed with flavour. One of my favourite ways to enjoy these tomatoes while they are at their peak of deliciousness is in a simple BLT sandwich where the juicy tomato takes the center stage and shines in all of its wondrous glory! After having enjoyed perhaps a few too many BLTs I wanted to change things up a bit and I remembered that I had wanted to try doing a roasted tomato BLT. As amazing as the tomatoes are right now, they get even better when you slowly roast them as their flavour concentrates, rather like a sun dried tomato. The idea was to start with some roma or plum tomatoes and cut them into roughly quarter inch slices so that they would roast quicker and this meant that the smaller ones could be cut in half and the larger ones would need to be cut into three.
