Seared Breakfast Banana Split with Biscuit Crumble

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!

Buckwheat Banana Pancakes

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.

Soaked Coconut Quinoa Porridge

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

Smoked Salmon Socca Pizza

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.

Chickpea Socca with Garlick-y Kale and Pistachio Dukkah

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.

Indian Green Shakshuka

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.

Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats

Heeyyyyy Ya!

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

Cutting Out Sugar/Wheatberry Porridge with Runny Eggs

Did you y’all realize I used to be a sugar ADDICT?

I mean I still kind of am. BUT I am working on it. When I was a kid, I used to hoard sweets and candy in my room (sorry to my mother who did not know this. Ha!). Reese’s cups were my drug of choice.  I was so content to have a muffin or a donut for breakfast, and, even in college, my go to was a highly sweet yogurt with just as sugary granola. I usually would crave chocolate after every meal. And I was not just satisfied with a whole piece. I needed a whole bar.

You heard that right friends. A whole freaking bar.

Breakfast Polenta with Balsamic Beets and Runny Eggs

I mean, I can’t even with this season at the moment

It was not until today that it hit me: CHRISTMAS IS IN TWO WEEKS PEOPLE. That is so so soon. I’m kind of one of those people that the holiday season doesn’t hit me until it’s too late. I usually like to plan ahead with everything, but, especially with gifts, I always find that Christmas sneaks up on me until BOO, there it is.

And there  I go again mixing up my holidays. Seriously wasn’t Halloween a week ago.
