Breakfast

Cinnamon Belgian Waffles

Long before I started this food blog, I’ve always been the “cook” between my husband and I. The exceptions to that rule are: 1. all matters of the grill; and 2. breakfast. His breakfast skills are legendary (seriously, ask any of our friends and family) and that includes his famous Belgian Waffles. He’s done different variationsRead more

Snickerdoodle Overnight Oats

Hi there! I’m a little late on my usual weekly post (sorry!) because work has been CRAY. I just love that new year hustle and bustle (read: panic, meltdowns, and nonstop fires to put out). Ah yes, the fun and fantastic world of consulting! But I digress, let’s talk about something much more fun: likeRead more

Green Glow Detox Juice

After multiple Thanksgiving meals and all of the leftovers, it’s time for a serious time out ๐Ÿ™‚ My body has been craving greens, and I needed to step up my game from my usual Easy Green Smoothie. So I came up with this Green Glow Detox Juice! This isn’t your typical smoothie, since it isn’t as thick andRead more

Perfect Pumpkin Muffins

It’s officially fall, y’all!!!! Sometimes I can’t resist rhyming. Sorry, I digress.  In honor of the first week of fall, I’m bringing you a surprising new favorite recipe at our house: Perfect Pumpkin Muffins ๐Ÿ™‚ I say it’s surprising because I’ve never made (or eaten) anything with pumpkin. Not even a pumpkin spice latte, whichRead more

Mini Breakfast Burritos

Who doesn’t love Breakfast Burritos?? They’re easy to make, portable, and they put a spin on the usual boring breakfast routine. We have a local restaurant chain called Anita’s that serves the best variations of breakfast burritos, and that’s where I got the inspiration for this yummy dish. Have fun with the recipe – ifRead more

Sunshine Smoothie

By now you know how much I love all kinds of food, but from time to time I need to hit the reset button with a light, healthy, and energizing meal. And because of the bright yellow color of this drink I’m calling it the Sunshine Smoothie! Not only does it look bright and pretty,Read more

Crab Frittata

Who doesn’t love brunch? For me, it conjures up the idea of a beautiful, lazy Sunday afternoon complete with cocktails and delicious, decadent food. And when I want something a bit indulgent I usually gravitate toward seafood. That’s how I came up with this yummy, yet easy to make, Crab Frittata! If you can makeRead more

Cap’n Crunch French Toast

Some may say that I’m a breakfast connoisseur. It’s definitely my favorite type of food (we regularly have breakfast for dinner) and Ryan makes THE best Belgian-style waffles, complete with Belgian sugar crystals. Yeah, it’s serious like that. I’m also a huge fan of pancakes, but who isn’t right? But when it comes to french toast,Read more

Acai Bowl

Hellooooooo! I have been a bit MIA the last few weeks, my bad! I had every intention of posting some yummy new recipes the last couple of weeks while on vacation, but….well, it just didn’t happen. Oops. As relaxing as it was, we kept quite active and busy with lots of sight seeing and eating, of courseRead more

Banana Nut Bread

There’s something so homey and comforting about Banana Nut Bread. I love the unmistakable aroma that fills the kitchen every time I make it! This is an easy, tried and true recipe passed down to me from my mother-in-law, which was passed down to her from her mom (Grandma Ambrose). Don’t you just love anRead more

Dairy Free Blueberry Muffins with Lemon Glaze

Snow storm Jonas completely slammed the DMV (DC, MD, & VA) a couple weeks ago – we got almost 40 inches! As annoying as it is to shovel that immense amount of snow (thanks, Ryan!) I’ve always loved the idea of getting snowed in. Growing up that was always a time when my mom and I would cuddleRead more

Easy Green Smoothie

Well, hello 2016 – so nice of you to join us! I was getting tired of 2015, so let’s see what you have to offer ๐Ÿ™‚ As is the case every year, I’m going to try to eat healthier more consistently this year. I’m a huge believer in balance – I like to eat right duringRead more

Avocado Toast

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a fun and relaxing weekend! If your weekend was anything like mine, you may have eaten a few too many foods that aren’t exactly “healthy” and now you need a meal to balance it all out. I’m going to pretend I’m not the only one that does this everyRead more

Cinnamon Pecan Monkey Bread

I made this for the first time a week ago and it was love at first bite. Full disclosure: the pictures you see in this post represent the third time I’ve made this in one week (#noregrets). Monkey Bread is something almost everyone has had, and it’s easy to see the appeal: butter, sugar, bread. NeedRead more

Banana Nut Pancakes

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like pancakes. Or breakfast for that matter. I could eat breakfast for every meal! Since autumn is here, I thought this recipe for Banana Nut Pancakes was the perfect first recipe for my new blog! Banana Nut Bread is a staple around our house in the fall and winter months,Read more
