Ingredients for Cloud Eggs


parchment paper


cooking spray

Directions for Cloud eggs and Mermaid toast

first… Could Eggs!

Preheat oven to 350 F. Separate white and yolk of eggs and place each yolk into a separate glass or bowl. Place all whites into a large bowl with some salt and whip with a cake beater until stiff peaks form. Place bu spoonfuls on cookie sheet prepared with parchment and sprayed with cooking spray. (number of lumps of egg white should equal number of eggs used) and place a well in the middle. Bake 6 minutes and remove from oven. Place a yolk in each well and put back in the oven for 4 minutes. Et Voila – could eggs.

My son Leo said it was like eating a marshmallow but not sweet. Good but weird really.

Next: Mermaid Toast


bread for toast

cream cheese

liquid chlorophyll

Spirulina powder

Directions for Mermaid Toast

This one is easy. Make toast. Smear with cream cheese. Sprinkle with spirulina and chlorophyll and swirl around so it looks pretty – then eat – On one of mine pictured I added a drop of blue food colouring for fun for Leo – yep, Leo ate it and he actually liked it!

Give it a shot – it does require a shopping trip to a health food store or Whole Foods…

Hope you have as much fun with this as I am having!

Harvard Square Salad

So, summer is upon us… this year my family took a 4 day vacation to Boston to take in the sights, eat amazing Lobsta and chowda and of course, I have come back with some recipes that I am copying and putting into the repertoire. This one was so simple and delicious – a salad I had after touring Harvard at a pub I forget the name of – this salad I shall now call Harvard Square Salad.

After eating every meal with a heavy cream chowder twist (or fried or bread or giant American portions…) I was in dire need of lighter fare. Luckily I didn’t give up the yum factor. I loved it so much I copied it and have been making it at home.

Here is what you will need

Ingredients for Harvard Square Salad

here are the things to buy for the yummy Harvard Square Salad

mixed greens


goat cheese


raspberries or blacberries


edamame or peas

flavored olive oil (I use chipotle)

white balsamic vinegar

In case you are wondering, here is where I get my flavoured oils and vinegar: Southampton Olive Oil Company. This is very close to where my In-Laws live – so delicious and worth the money…


So really simple – grill the asparagus and allow to cool. Chop into bite sized pieces, add lettuce, avocado, chunks of cheese, berries, edamame, and a hand full of pistachios. Toss with a drizzle of oil and balsamic vinegar and there you have it – a yummy and healthy Harvard Square Salad.

I have been eating this at least three times per week since I got home – I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
