Shakshuka Panzanella

Because if there was any day to make a salad that does not seem like a salad, it is today.

We love salads up in here, but, sometimes, you want that salad that is pretending to be something it should be. And a bread salad aka a panzanella definitely fits what we need for quick work week lunches and dins.

It’s a party up in here for sure!

Mexican Street Corn Avocado Toast

We are on a south of the border kick over here.

Seriously, you need to do yourself a favor (or better yet, a f(l)avor) and make these bad boys up. I know y’all might pause at the fact that I am seriously writing up a recipe for avocado toast… but think of this more as a major sign to flavortown.

Oh no… am I turning into Guy Fieri?

Fluffy Vegan Chickpea Flour Pancakes

These chickpea flour pancakes are seriously one of the best things I’ve ever consumed.

Not being dramatic in the slightest. I swear.

It’s spring so we are THISSSS close to tomato season. My love of tomatoes has been documented time and again before (along with my love of pancakes and all things Josh Groban), but for some reason, I am just so pumped to get these little guys back in my life… and this recipe makes me extra excited.

My Go-To Chia Pudding

Can I convince you to eat something with beets for breakfast? If it looks like this, absolutely!

I’ve mentioned this before, but my childhood was filled with beets. We would go to the amish market whenever we visited my aunt. My mom would pick up a GALLON of pickled beets. Between the five of us, they lasted MAYBE two weeks.

That always led to some very interesting discussions about number 1 and number 2, if you catch my drift.

Easy Sweet Potato Breakfast Boats

I can feel the hesitancy on your face. Just go on me with this.

This is just one of those things that us Americans need to get better about. The question of “what foods belong at breakfast.” We clearly do not have a problem with eating eggs or even smoothie bowls. So why should we limit what choices we have for dinner. I say… POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

It’s totally worth it

Fluffy Buckwheat Pancakes

Buckwheat is definitely the sexiest form of pancake.

I know because I’ve had them all. I am very particular about the pancakes I consume. My dad every Saturday would make stacks and stacks of buckwheat pancakes. I loved going downstairs and eating a huge stack. Then, I might follow that up with a pancake chaser/snack sometime in the afternoon. And then of course, there were the pancakes that I would take in a Ziploc bag to lunch at school. I would eat them cold, smeared with peanut butter.

I was living my best life, even at 8.

Spiced Sweet Potato Coconut Flour Bread

I made you a dessert recipe. In January. It’s true.

Don’t worry though, I made these healthy…ish. They are totally healthy January approved, at least in my book anyway!

Plus, it’s Monday, and we all need a little something sweet to celebrate making it through our first week of 2018.

And yes. I did write 2015, then 2017, before finally settling on 2018. Jeez louise.

What I Learned About Pasture Raised Eggs + Perfect Soft-Boiled Eggs

It has been a long time coming, but I am coming to you with some VERY important information.

Now, as a vegetarian, I eat a TON of eggs. It Is very rare that I do not have eggs at least once a day. And, truth be told, I probably would eat them for almost any meal, if given the chance. On salads. Scrambled. For breakfast. It is so weird to me that I used to HATE eggs. Like truly hate them. The taste and the texture reminded me of that time my brother poured about half of a bottle of maple syrup over my eggs and I still ate them.

But honestly, that much cold maple syrup and warm eggs would make anyone gag.

Sweet and Savory Butternut Squash Oatmeal

I do not eat oatmeal enough. And to be honest, that is a real shame.

I always get in breakfast funks. And it is not predictable about what kind of funk I will be in when. All I know is that 1) I will eat a breakfast item nonstop for about 2-3 weeks without getting tired of it. And 2) almost spontaneously, I will get sick of said food and have to relinquish it from my life for maybe six months.

Yeah, the results are pretty tragic.
