Breakfast Bowl: Chia Pudding with Fruit

Last month I was feeling like I’ve been in a breakfast rut so I googled healthy breakfast bowls and came across a surprising amount of recipes for chia seed pudding.  I’ve been eating this all week and like it so much that I’m sharing it with y’all. I am probably late to this chia seed game because I thought cha-cha-cha-Chia seeds …

Zucchini Fritters

I love anything pretty much in pancake or waffle form.  Last year, I waffled my mom’s leftover Thanksgiving stuffing and I still think it may be the best thing I’ve ever eaten. When potatoes aren’t available or we are looking for a slightly healthier version of a potato pancake, I’ll make these zucchini fritters. Packed …

Summery Gazpacho Soup

It’s (still) summer even though I’m already doing what hubs calls “forcing fall” – wearing long sleeves, jackets and sweaters before it’s truly cold enough outside to do so. I love beginning of  the fall season, the first time you see your breath in the morning, first frost on the grass, until finally, the smell of …

Toasted Ciabatta with Ricotta and Sugar Snap Peas

The past seven days have been a bunch of postpartum “firsts” for me. Last week I cared and cooked for houseguests (instead of the other way around), watched my first live rugby match, hosted a small brunch gathering, attended my ladies book(wine) club, took baby P to the grocery store with me, and overall, felt like a normal human being again. PHEW, …

Guinness Affogato

In prep for the big Irish Day, Bon Appétit emailed the masses a photo/recipe for a Guinness Affogato earlier this week.  One quick read of the ingredients; Bailey’s Irish Cream, Guinness, espresso and ice cream, and I knew it was something I had to make and put it in my gob as soon as possible.

Monkey Bread

Let me begin by saying, this is not from scratch, not even remotely.  I’ve thrown scratch out the window and replaced it with ease these past couple of months… I’ll tell you what, this pregnancy thing is not all it’s cracked up to be… I’m 35 1/2 weeks preggo and I think I’ve spent more time …

BA’s September Cover: Grandma’s Pizza!

Bon Appétit’s September cover recipe is homemade pizza with “grandma style pizza crust”.  I don’t know about your grandma, but my Slovak Nana never made pizza dough.  Pierogis, halupki, layered jello, and a mean pot roast, yes.  Pizza dough, no.  I think what constitutes this pizza dough as “grandma style” is the fact that you …

Housewarming Gift – Curried Lentil Soup!

My good friend, beautiful Melissa, recently moved and held a housewarming party.  I wanted to bring something different and fun.  Knowing she’s a vegetarian, I opted for a “meal in a jar” of curried lentil soup.  It looks impressive and is helpful to new homeowners for throwing together a quick meal.  Step 1.) pick out a …

Poppy Seed Banana Bread

The Hubs told me the other day he’s been buying SOME OTHER LADY’S banana bread on campus lately as a mid-morning snack.  I felt as if I’d been slapped.  Ok, so I haven’t baked in a while, but still!?  I definitely had some rotten bananas on hand this week.  Couple my rotten bananas with The Hubs eating some other …

Elote (Mexican Street Corn)

It’s no secret, hands down, my favorite restaurant in Nashville is Mas Tacos Por Favor.  I would choose it over all the current critically acclaimed Nashville restaurant names: Husk, Etch, even Rolf & Daughters (the latter two being my other favorites when money isn’t too tight)!  Mas Tacos is located in a “currently-it’s-going-through-a-regentrification” neighborhood across the …
