If you can incorporate these four Bs into a meal, I totally recommend it. Here's how I did it: Sirloin burgers with Boursin cheese middles and as a topper. Oven applewood bacon, also a topper along with sliced avocado. Beer on the side. Not rocket science, but dang, the Boursin cheese + bacon… MORE

Normally, I'd blab about food on my Allrecipes blog. Pretty obvious. Instead, I'm looking for advice on how to teach a class. I figure with the number of Allrecipeeps on here, some of you must be teachers. I've been asked to teach a class about TV production/producing, and am only 99%… MORE

In honour of Eddie Murphy being named as host of the 48th Academy Awards, I've decided to post a "recipe" that a friend and I came up with a few years ago. I named it "Banana In The Tailpipe" because, well, because there's bananas in it. And because, I like Eddie Murphy. Enjoy.Banana In The… MORE

So like the title says, I don't have a microwave. Last year, when I moved provinces, I got rid of almost everything I owned. Including the microwave. I left it in the vestibule of my building... but that's another story. I've gone almost six months without the zip zap of the 'wave. At first,… MORE

Good lawd! It's more than half-way through June and not a single post from me. Guess I've been preoccupied with settling in to my new/old home city. My new job has me travelling more than I thought, which is cool, just less time to do stuff like write in my blog for any Allrecipeeps, to read.… MORE

Today is TeddiBear's birthday. She's six. And she's the family dog. Ok, she's actually my mom's dog, but I'm her second mom, so that makes her the family dog. Anyway, I came back home this weekend for some chill-out time and to celebrate TB's b-day. And I couldn't think of a better way to… MORE

I finally tried stevia after I found some at the same price I would pay for Sugar Twin. Because of health issues I got off sugar a few years ago. Of course, I consume it in baked goods, but I don't add sugar to anything like my decaf coffees and teas or to fruit, ceral, etc. And I stay… MORE

I moved into my new apartment last week and I'm starting to feel more comfortable here. It's taking longer than the last time I moved, probably because I'm in a new city, too. My new kitchen table and couch arrived and the TV is propped up by boxes containing all my books. No where to put… MORE

So! It's been a busy month or so for me. After going through three interviews, I landed a job! Whoo-hoo! It's exciting, and I'll be moving to my favourite city. I found an apartment last Monday and I move this Friday. It's all happening really fast. I've been feeling sentimental about… MORE

I haven't had breakfast for dinner in at least a year or so, which is just so wrong. Tonight was the night! Waffles, scrambled eggs and local bacon, free of nitrates and all the other they put in bacon. The pigs, er... I mean bacon, are from a local farm. It's thicker, less… MORE

About Me
Just started a website at laurenmills.ca that's dedicated to the love of food. Besides that, I love to laugh, bake, cook, run, garden, read, watch TV, high-kick to music, pull pranks and then laugh some more. I'm also a jigsaw puzzler and by day, a broadcast producer/media production supervisor.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking and baking anything that brings a smile to the person eating it! It's also satisfying for me to cook large or intricate meals to challenge myself and see if I can do it well and in a timely manner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Breakfast for dinner was my favourite family cooking tradition: buckwheat pancakes, crispy bacon, homemade buttery syrup, halved grapefruit and big glasses of ice-cold milk. I didn't know what a buttermilk pancake was until I was much older! :o) One other, now that I think of it, was coming home to find live crabs walking around on the kitchen counter. My father would pick them up for dinner, fresh and cook them. Crab legs are one of, if not my favourite meal to this day. And! Loved going to the orchards when I was a kid to pick fresh fruit and then bake it into pies. Yum!
