Portobello Baked Eggs

I’ve always loved baked eggs. When I was little, we often had typical French baked eggs which consisted of eggs cracked into a ramekin, topped with a little whipping cream, chopped fresh chives, a good pinch of fleur de sel and freshly cracked pepper and then baked until the whites are just set and the […] Read more…

Carrot-Soup-websize-2

It’s felt like a long couple of weeks. Life in the Test Kitchen hasn’t skipped a beat — we’re well on our way into our Spring issues (almost moving on to Canadian Living’s May 2014 issue!) and I feel like the Fall months have sort of passed me by. This soup was a welcome pause […] Read more…

Whole Foods carries already prepared and cooked snow […] Read more…

 

Herbed Chicken with Summer Salad and Buttered Corn

Sometimes, I struggle with the desire for a Sunday-worthy meal on a busy weeknight. A classic roast chicken, for example, is something I crave time and time again. To be honest, what I really crave are the ‘rotisseries’ I grew up eating in Paris. Chickens are roasted whole on large metal rods, and gently turn […] Read more…
