It’s getting hot in here for a Monday!
Don’t worry. I won’t force you to take your clothes off! But in all actuality, I am so happy the weather is finally turning. DC is so lush and green at the moment. It is really motivating me to start growing things!
This might just be my inner plant lady coming out!

Aka how I have fully embraced having dessert as breakfast. Or hey, what about breakfast as dessert? With Mother’s Day coming up and everything, I was looking for a recipe that was a) relatively low maintenance, b) reasonably good for you, and c) so decadent she would not be able to tell the difference between this and dessert ! And I think I’ve nailed it.
Because, while this is a banana split, if you squint, it looks like breakfast!

These pancakes are a bit life changing.
I know I’ve touched on this before, but like, I am obsessed with breakfast food. No joke. I want all the breakfast foods, sweet or savory, all the time. Eggs, pancakes, waffles, hash. You say the words and I am SO. GAME. What makes that hard is most breakfast food is hard to take to work, ya know? And I am at work for a considerable portion of my week. So even if I want breakfast food for lunch (aka, that is most days) it is damn near impossible to make my dreams a reality.
If you’ve ever had a cold fried egg, you now exactly what I am talking about.

There’s something so comforting about the word porridge, right? Even if it is 90 degrees outside?
I mean, the word porridge just feels nourishing, right? Much more than warmed quinoa breakfast, am I right? And even as summer begins to poke over the horizon (thank GOODNESS) I still want that comfort that a warm bowl of porridge provides.
Then again, I am the kind of person who drinks hot coffee all year round

Aww yeah it is pizza time!
Isn’t pizza day the best day of the week? Friday was usually my family’s pizza day. My mom was too tired to cook by the end of the week, so we would call what I still think is the BEST pizza in the country (that’s right, in little old South Jersey I have found pizza that absolutely crushes any pie I’ve had in NYC) But hey, I’m all about not limiting pizza Friday to just Friday. Actually you know what the best day of the week would be for pizza day? How about everyday!
A girl can dream.

I used to be that kid. You know, the one who hated coconut everything.
You would never know that from the 23 (almost 24. I can’t believe I am that old) year old me. Now, I love coconut flavored everything. I lather myself up with coconut oil every chance I get. I always add coconut milk to my curries. Coconut is usually my number one option for chocolate/ice cream mix ins/skin options. I coconut oil the ends of my hair. Gosh, where would I be without coconut?
And do not even get me started on coconut butter.

I bring you sunshine in a dish.
And I know that ANYONE would be totally down with eating something that has the title of SUNSHINE in a dish, don’t you. How could this possible be bad right? After a season of grain bowls and polenta, I am TOTALLY down with eating my greens.
Actually to be honest I am ALWAYS down with eating my greens.

It’s no secret that I love my Indian spices. And eggs. Actually all of this.
Does anyone else have the problem of the “exploding spice cabinet”? I swear, every time that I open my spice cabinet, the jars of spices tumble out. I’ve always wanted to make magnetic spice rack for the surface of the refrigerator, to try and alleviate said cabinet space. But I am always the kind of person who tries desperately to be crafty and then have it end up with yarn and glitter everywhere. And like everything on Pinterest, it always ends up as a fail.
But there are worse things than extra glitter in our lives.

Did I get that Outkast song stuck in your head now? For me, it’s been 3 days that I have been shaking like a poloroid picture and I cannot STOP. Isn’t that the most annoying thing ever? Trust me, there are some mornings when the song that is currently the alarm on my phone will not leave my head for the entire duration of the day. The worst is when the song is so stuck in your head that you stark lip-singing the words to the song. And totally not even notice. There may even be some slight shaking of the bum, which makes the whole experience for others even more terrifying. Cause then everyone you pass begins to think you are a freak mumbling to yourself like in the exorcist.
And yes, that actually happened to me on my commute
