Dippy Eggs & Spicy Feta Provolone Soldiers

I can’t recall where I first learned about toast soldiers for dipping into soft boiled eggs but I remember thinking it was genius. My family did it a bit differently. Instead of boring plain toast, my mother would make a grilled cheese of sorts and 

Turkish Cilbir Toast

Turkish Cilbir Toast

Çilbir. This is right up my alley. I live for runny yolks, butter, and labne. I nearly fell off my chair when I came across this Turkish dish of poached eggs in a garlicy yogurt with aleppo spiked butter. It’s as if life gives you 

Ejjeh Quiche

Ejjeh Quiche

Ejjeh: a Lebanese omelette or frittata of sorts made with tons of herbs. I’ve seen it as a very thin green omelette that is then stuffed into a pita with tomato. I’ve also seen it as little herb and zucchini fritters. Which leads me to believe that

Mushroom & Spinach Breakfast Skillet

It’s Saturday morning in Toronto. The first thing I think about as I open my eyes is, “Wow. I’m hung-over.” Then second thing is, “I want brunch… and now.” If you live in Toronto, you know that grabbing brunch can sometimes be a three-hour endeavor. 

Avocado & Egg Toast with Aleppo Oil

Avocado & Egg Toast with Aleppo Oil

Life after Game of Thrones finale. It’s sad and empty. I’m left questioning my existence. So many thoughts. So many new questions that won’t be answered until a year from now. This is not a feeling I enjoy. I’m afraid and unsure, just like Daenerys in
