Eggs Soufflé

I was hosted a brunch recently, and after indulging in so much food the last few days I decided to create these mini individual soufflés for my guests.
No surprise, they were a hit.
You can make your own variation and mix up the ingredients to whatever you prefer the most.
I slightly adapted this recipe from LCBO.


6 ramekins slightly oiled with evoo
8 eggs
12 chopped mini cherry tomatoes
3 tablespoons of Chopped dill



Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Lightly oil 6 ramekins.
Heat some oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add tomatoes and stir just until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes. A pepper and salt. Stir.

Crack 8 eggs in a large bowl and whisk.

Fill bottom of custard cups with tomato mixture. Sprinkle grated cheese and dill overtop. Stir to mix with tomatoes. Using a spoon create a hollow in tomato mixture. Pour egg mixture over tomatoes mixture into each ramekin. Sprinkle with additional shredded cheese and dill.

Bake just until eggs are set, about 20 minutes.




Sunshine Juice

I have the perfect drink to wake you up!
Push aside the Tropicana in the fridge and make yourself a clean drink that will be sure to be packed with vitamins and nutrients. What’s great about this drink is that there is a slight kick of heat from the ginger and cayenne pepper.


1/2 cup of water
2 oranges (peeled)
2 mandarins (peeled)
1 lime (peeled)
Juice from half a lemon
Chunk of ginger
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
3 dashes of cayenne pepper
1 tablespoons of organic honey

Place the above noted ingredients into a Vitamix blender or juicer. Blend away and pour in a glass!
