The Shakshuka Experiment

I’ve just wrapped up our 8th annual ladies weekend, a time for some of my former roommates and I to sneak away from the world, reconnect, reminisce, drink wine, sleep in, and indulge.  With a new baby in the group and one friend who moved down to Virginia, we chose to stay at home in […]

Tiny Quiche Bites

About a month ago my brother in-law was over for dinner when an amazon package arrived.  As I excitedly revealed this delightful tiny muffin tray, he commented “That looks like one of those 1 am purchases that is going to do an impressive job collecting dust in the back of your drawer.”  Well, I was […]

Breakfast Egg Muffins

I am breaking myself out of the creative block that I’ve been locked within! Here I go. These last few weeks we have been settling into our new home and finally have some curtains up on the walls.  When I come home at night, I am greeted by a place that smells like our home […]

The Eggs Baked in a Portobello Mushroom Experiment

With one remaining portobello mushroom in the fridge I set out to make myself a breakfast treat inspired by this recipe and my favorite motto – put an egg on it!   The process was straightforward.  I first sprayed the mushroom with olive oil and seasoned it with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Then I […]

Pesto and Pepper Frittata

Frittatas are the perfect ‘garbage meal’ meaning you can empty your fridge of practically any veggies, meats, and/or cheeses in order to create a unique and delicious meal. Beyond this, frittatas can be made ahead of time and then served cold or pre-heated. I’m grateful to have learned how to make these and of course […]

The Overnight Oats Experiment

I know, I know, I’m a bit late to the party with this one, but boy is it a party I am glad I found! A few months ago I stumbled upon the health benefits of overnight oats.  Having these for breakfast means that your body absorbs more nutrients, you are full longer (which is […]

Steak, Eggs, and Potatoes!

This past Sunday, as we were fueling up for our house hunting adventure, my husband made this delicious breakfast! I’m happy to say that I can take no credit for this meal. Now that we have a cast iron skillet we seem to be in the habit of cleaning any leftover food out of our […]

The Quinoa Breakfast Bowl Experiment

  Quinoa for breakfast (such as this) keeps popping up in my life and it seemed about time to give it a go.  We are huge quinoa fans and regularly have it for lunch and dinner – in casseroles, as a side dish, on top of a salad, etc.   Without enough ingredients to truly follow […]

Carnitas Hash Skillet

I was home from work today and had a strong urge for some comfort food.  With the end of the leftover carnitas in the fridge I figured it was the perfect day to play around and try making a hash. Last week, after making carnitas for the first time, Another Foodie Blogger gave me the […]

Potato Hash w/ Veggies

    One of my favorite times of the week, at this moment in my life, is sleeping in on the weekends, turning off technology, and creating a delicious breakfast out of whatever we can find around the kitchen.  Yesterday, we had one of these mornings where we made this recipe and then spent the […]
