Almond Flour Blueberry Muffins

My little man is almost 14 months old and he’s officially moved into the toddler class at school. It feels like yesterday when I saw his beautiful face for the first time. I remember people telling me that they grow up fast; man, they sure do! With his new class, breakfast isn’t at school anymore. They are only fed a morning snack, lunch and an afternoon snack. So now I’m trying to think of quick and easy make ahead breakfasts that will keep our mornings from becoming too hectic. Our…

Crème Brulee French Toast

French toast already sounds heavenly to me, but then add on a crème brulee flavoring, and it’s totally something I have to make for breakfast! I love when I stumble upon recipes where I can do the prep work the night before and just bake and reap the delicious reward the next day.  The real trick to this recipe is finding good rich bread where you can make thick slices, like brioche. The caramel sauce on top is completely optional; you can always use warm maple syrup as well. Serving…

Homemade Sausage for Breakfast

I realized that I haven’t pulled out my meat grinder in a few months and it was getting neglected. The last time I tried to make sausage was back in the summer when I made lamb sausage. So having some free time on my hands, I wanted to make some breakfast sausage instead of having to go to the grocery store on the weekends when I’m craving it! Ingredients: 2 lbs pork tenderloin, freshly ground 2 tsp dried sage 2 tsp sea salt 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper 1/4…

Carrot Pancakes for Sunday Breakfast

As I was laying in bed staring outside at the blue sky on a gorgeous Sunday morning, I really wanted to have a delicious, yet healthy breakfast. It seemed like everyone in the Twitter world was thinking the same, cooking up a storm on a Sunday morning. I happened on a really scrumptious carrot pancake recipe courtesy of Cooking Light (Twitter handle @Cooking_Light). The recipe looked really easy and luckily I had all the ingredients in my kitchen already, so it was a no brainer and now I want to…

Spicy Chicken Biscuits for Tailgating

We’re heading to FedEx Field to cheer on our Washington Redskins and I wanted to make something easy to eat, crowd friendly, and super delicious. Since it’s a 1:00 game, we’ll probably start our tailgating festivities bright and early; what better way to kick off a day of football and fun than spicy chicken biscuits! I love the chicken biscuits from Chick-fil-A, so here’s my attempt to recreate it at home! Biscuit Ingredients: Serving Size: 9 biscuits Cook Time: 20 minutes 3 cups all purpose flour 2 tbsp cane sugar…

Bacon Wrapped Eggs for Dinner

My husband has been obsessing over this YouTube recipe for bacon wrapped eggs for quite some time now. So after a pretty intense CrossFit workout tonight, I thought it would be a good treat to make it for him for dinner. Now please leave all judgment aside; I know that eating bacon and eggs for dinner isn’t the smartest idea, but it’s chocked full of protein and we aren’t ingesting any carbs. And it made for a great inspiration to power through the workout tonight! Serving Size: 2 Cook Time:…

Fresh From the Farm Breakfast

When I hear that a restaurant supports fresh and local ingredients and is eco-friendly, I have to check it out! So over the weekend, my good friend and I met for breakfast at Founding Farmers in DC. My friend also mentioned to me that her former architecture firm designed the restaurant and that it’s a LEED certified restaurant; meaning that it’s dedicated and promotes environmentally friendly practices. The background of this DC restaurant is also very interesting. Instead of being owned by a chef or a firm, the restaurant is…
