Perfect Sunny-Side-Up Eggs

sunny-side-up egg

Typically the post after a New Food Friday would use the new food in a recipe, but today we’re talking sunny-side-up eggs. No condiments, nothing fancy. I’m building up to something here. Be patient. šŸ™‚ I decided to create this post after a conversation about cooking eggs at a holiday party. I realized that I […]

Cinnamon-Apple Overnight Oats

So, I have a lot of oat recipes on the blog. I eat oatmeal in some form almost every single day, even on the weekends. If I’m not eating oatmeal, it’s because I’m traveling or because I’m going out for breakfast/brunch…which doesn’t happen all that often. And that’s ok. It’s comforting to know that whatever […]

Roasted Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts with Maple-Mustard-Sriracha Sauce

roasted vegetables

As the produce delivery season winds down, I’ve found myself relying more and more on my standby cooking strategies for using up large quantities of produce at once. One is stir frying. The other is roasting, and that’s exactly how this roasted vegetable dish came about. Typically I spend most of my time and energy […]

Chai Apple Oatmeal

Ok, ok it has happened. I am fully embracing fall. Bring on the flannel, the boots, the PSLs. But before you go full-on leaf raking, tailgating and pumpkin carving, make yourself a tasty bowl (or mug, as the case may be!) of this chai apple oatmeal. Before I ever liked coffee, I was a tea […]

Apparently we’re in for a toasty fall as well, but it won’t be quite the same.Ā So I’m keeping summer alive while I can. I’ve […]

Those little individual cups are so convenient! Paul’s favorite is the blueberry Chobani, while I’m partial to strawberry-banana and the Fage cups with […]

Eggy Wrap with Chorizo

chorizo eggy wrap

So, the classic eggy wrap is pretty great. Scrambled eggs, cheese and hot sauce all wrapped up in a tortilla for a perfect, delicious and (if need be) portable meal. However. If you skip the hot sauce, add in spicy sausage and switch the cheese…you have something different, but just as delicious! A coworker made […]

Kiwi Oatmeal

I have gone most of my adult life thus far thinking that I did not like kiwi. I don’t know if I had a bad experience as a kid or what, but for many years I avoided kiwi at all costs. However, in the spirit of trying new things (or re-trying old ones), when I […]

Grapefruit Chia Jam

Here’s a variation on my standard chia jam recipe, using a big beautiful grapefruit! I wanted to punch up the flavor a little in this batch, so I added about a teaspoon of grated fresh ginger. I liked the result, but feel free to omit it.Ā And fair warning, thisĀ grapefruit jam is a bit thinner than […]

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

This recipe came about one morningĀ when we were running low on groceries and there was no fresh fruit in the house. Normally I’d be fine just throwing a handful of raisins into my oatmeal and calling it good, but I was looking for something a little more substantial and spotted a couple of carrots sitting […]
