Broiled Grapefruit with Ginger and Honey

I have been going through my previous posts and I noticed that I haven’t posted a breakfast recipe in a while! Shame on me! I know that breakfast can vary throughout the week–from a quick bowl of granola or a smoothie on a weekday to an elegant spread of pancakes or perhaps some smoked salmon bagels on the weekend. There’s a lot of in between! One great breakfast dish that is suitable for either a weekday or a weekend is this recipe for Broiled Grapefruit with Ginger and Honey. It has a beautiful presentation and it can be made in just a few minutes, which is perfect for those busy weekday mornings! Seasonal and local ingredients As with most of my recipes, I like to focus on seasonal and local ingredients.

When served over salad, the goat cheese is typically in disc form, but in this recipe, I rolled the goat cheese into little balls before breading and frying them. On their own, these goat cheese balls are salty and savoury but …

Honeyed Greek Yogurt with Blueberry Jam

#BCBlueberryWeek continues today with a healthy, blueberry-filled breakfast recipe. This recipe for Honeyed Greek Yogurt with Blueberry Jam is so sweet and delicious that it could almost be a healthy dessert rather than a breakfast! Even though this is a simple and straightforward recipe, the combination of ingredients are set to stand the test of time. Honey, lemon and blueberries are commonly used in breakfast recipes and are considered a classic combination for a reason. Yep..those are real blueberry leaves! I opted to add the honey and lemon directly into the Greek yogurt, rather than the blueberry jam itself so that the flavours do not cook out or fade during the cooking process. Plus, Greek yogurt can sometimes be tangy (perfectly complimented by the lemon zest), but are sometimes bland overall, so the addition of honey and lemon really makes it taste so much better. You only need to add a little bit of honey to the Greek yogurt, since the blueberry jam gets mixed in with the yogurt as you eat it. Speaking of …
