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 …

Turkey meatballs with Zoodles and Noodles

If the month of March’s slogan is, “comes in like a Lion”,  I think January’s slogan should be, “comes in like a slap”!  Let’s face it, we just finished almost two straight months of gluttony; Thanksgiving dinner, Thanksgiving leftovers, Christmas cookies, multiple holiday parties and feasts (more leftovers) and don’t forget something lavish for NYE, too!  Now all of a …

Khoresh Karafs

Let me disclaim: I am an American self-taught home cook (not an old Persian lady) and this is my quick version of a tasty khoresh. What is Khoresh, you ask?  Khoresh is the Persian equivalent to a French braise.  Persian cooking is complex, typically with a lot of exotic ingredients, but I’ve found Khoresh Karafs to …

Baked Doughnuts

Baked doughnuts are definitely not fried doughnuts but basically eating a doughnut for breakfast is like eating cake for breakfast so everyone still wins.  This particular doughnut is in fact called a cake doughnut, meaning there isn’t any yeast involved.  You can totally be eating doughnuts in roughly 30 minutes from beginning to end and …

Porky Rice Bowls

I feel like we have just gotten into the swing of all this heat and suddenly the temps are (sort of) dropping, the days are getting shorter and Baby P is this new upwardly mobile, vocal little human.  I feel like we have eaten a lot of awesome things this summer that I was lax on posting about, because, well, LIFE.  This refreshing, …

salt cured egg yolks

Waaaaay back sometime last year I can recall seeing a recipe for salt cured egg yolks in one of my magazines.  I remembered thinking; “I need to remember and try this!” and then promptly forgot all about it.  Fast forward to last week, where Lindsay posted this “how to” video on Instagram and I knew I needed …

cold-brewed strawberry orange tea

I’ve got strawberry fever and the cure is to put them in EVERYTHING! This fruit-infused tea is a refreshing and summery Memorial Day treat well worth the 24 hour wait! Cold-brewed fruit-infused tea is great for using up all the weird tea left behind by our visiting parents.  They buy different tea each visit yet never drink it because they …

banana muffin mini-bundts

This banana muffin mini-bundt post almost didn’t happen today… almost.  I always post a recipe in honor of my sister’s birthday, which happens to fall on St. Patrick’s day.  These banana bundts have nothing to do with St. Patrick’s day other than if my sister were here, I’d have made them for her for breakfast. …

grown up chocolate cake

January was a huge month for our household.  We celebrated Baby P’s first birthday, complete with a decadent chocolate cake, lots of presents, a kiddie party, out-of-town grandparents, Snowpacolypse and only one meltdown (from me)!  I’d say that’s pretty good, considering everything…

beef and broccoli mushroom stir fry

I just looked back at the last 5 posts I made and they are all for sweets.  I swear we’ve been eating lots of good things other than sugar!  I’ve been perfecting this stir fry since mid-December.  Nothing is more comforting in wintertime than a warm beef and broccoli mushroom stir fry.  This rice bowl has made …
