Arugala Breakfast Salad with Stovetop Maple Nut Brittle and Blueberry Lemon Dressing

I’m a big fan of breakfast for any meal of the day, but I’m weird about my eggs in the morning. I will eat any kind of egg except one with a runny yolk for breakfast, but as far as runny yolks go, all bets are off for lunch or dinner. So weird.

(Any other quirky breakfast eaters out there?)

Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Panzanella Salad

Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Panzanella Salad

There is nothing better than fresh, local tomatoes in their peak season. I crave them just about nonstop this time of year, and have been known to make dinner out of them for the better part of a week straight (and I could have happily gone longer if I hadn’t run out of tomatoes and if the farmer I bought them from weren’t a two-hour car ride away)....

The Salad I’ve Been Enjoying All Summer

I know this might look like a real recipe, but it really isn’t. Yes, it’s food, and yes, it’s satisfying and delicious. But you can swap out any of the ingredients for a customized version, no recipe required. Take a closer peek into this bowl of goodness…...

Chocolate Avocado Pudding {Vegan}

DSC_9956(small)

It’s not new, but on the off chance that someone hasn’t made chocolate avocado pudding I wanted to share my version.  If you’re on the fence about making it, give it a try!  If the fact that it’s healthy doesn’t sell you, just know that its creaminess rivals that of any chocolate pudding you’ve indulged in.  (And no, you can’t taste the avocado!)  :)...

Refried Lentils & A Fiesta of a Meal!

In college I dormed with three other girls my junior year.  We didn’t do much cooking (since there was one kitchen for the whole floor and it never seemed to be without a sink full of dirty dishes, a food-spattered stovetop, and a sticky counter…and who wants to have to clean someone else’s kitchen mess before they can make dinner?), but when we did one of our favorite things to make was fajitas with refried beans.  We didn’t make them often, not only because of the kitchen issues, but also because making fajitas was always a whole night affair....

Spumone Pudding Cake {With Avocado}

IMG_4950 (Small)

Despite our hot and humid weather, I recently found myself in the mood to bake.  I had about a quarter of a bag of cherries in the fridge and I knew I wanted to incorporate them into some kind of cake.  I was thinking about making something with cherries and cream cheese, like cherry cheesecake cupcakes or cherry and cheese Danishes.  Fate had other plans for me though.  My visions of cherries and cheese were quickly altered when I opened the fridge to take out the cherries.  There in the back of the fridge was a lonely (and kind-of sorry-looking) avocado.  Now, there are plenty of things […]...

I want to give a huge thank you to my very sweet friend Karyn of French Charming.  Karyn’s blog is full of beautiful eye candy and nourishment for the soul too.  Karyn’s positive outlook and inspirational ideas always bring a smile to my face.  She is one of the most truly genuine bloggers I have had the pleasure of coming across, and reading her blog feels like catching up with a very dear friend.  In addition to all of this, she is amazingly generous (she recently hosted 5 fabulous giveaways for 5 days in a row!).  Karyn recently sent me a stunning tote bag that […]...

Meals in Minutes — Guacamole BLT

img_4821-small

Most people know that avocados are really fruits rather than vegetables, but until recently I had no idea that avocados are actually large berries that come from the same family as cinnamon, camphor, and bay laurel (for more info on avocados, see here).  Avocados are known for their creamy texture and buttery flavor, and are used in a variety of sweet and savory recipes.  My next Meals in Minutes post is a sandwich – Guacamole BLT.  The salty, crispy bacon and the smooth, creamy avocado pair perfectly, and the tomato and lemon juice really help to brighten the avocado’s flavor.  Since it’s mashed, guacamole is […]...
