longest name in the world muffins


oatmeal, banana, zucchini, cranberry, and chocolate chip mini muffins. All I did was add some ingredients to boring standard oatmeal muffin mix... you may have to alter the mix:water combination to get a good batter consistency if you're going to add your own ingredients. but...bake/experiment and enjoy. They came out supper moist and created new inspiration for alternate combinations.....orange juice, poppy seed and carrot? oh yes!!!! coming soon.

boil, scoop, mash, refill, top, and double bake.

Don't attempt these unless you have patience and time. I can see why no one makes double baked potatoes on a regular basis. Next time I am going to try this with sweet potatoes, check back soon.

Can of tuna mixed up with 1 tbs. olive oil, juice of a lemon, S&P, toss into mixed greens and halved cherry tomatoes, sprinkle with sesame seeds for extra nuttiness. enjoy.

Plenty of preparing and chopping, but a heck of a good time; create your own taco plate and make a big Mexican Mess.

if this is not a picture perfect wrap i don't know what is. He spent his time sizzling that bacon slowly and balanced its "bad for you" stigma with crisp greens, lean turkey breast, and not to mention a flaxseed filled whole grain wrap. everyone needs to live a little right? well done brother.

an iphone approach....

egg drop soup

For the past two months I have moved twice and traveled back home to Toronto, to Dominican, and back to Vancouver.... So lets just say my food photography and cooking experiments have taken a hit. BUT....my lovely iphone has captured a few good mornings and quick soups...which makes me feel like that's all im eating these days...I can't remember the last time I made a seriously delicious dish. HELP!!!
