Breakfast

Ina’s Lemon Yogurt Bread

I’m back! Why? Take your pick: (A) The internet really needs one more food blog (B) I’m going out less and cooking more often now that we have a baby (!) (C) I need a creative outlet other than writing about software and thrilling tech topics (D) I just like…

The easiest creamy oatmeal recipe

Good morning! This oatmeal has been my go-to breakfast (or even lunch) lately, and I had to share how delicious and easy it is. The easiest oatmeal is made up of just oats, milk, water, 1/2 of a banana and a little vanilla extract (plus whatever you add on top!). The chopped…

Gingerbread white chocolate chip biscotti

Let’s hold on to the holiday season a little bit longer and make this delicious biscotti to dunk in our morning coffee. We still have one more December day to savor! And really, it’s too cold to go outside in Colorado right now anyway. (I was freezing when it was 50 in Arizona…I’d keep…

Eggnog Pancakes

Creamy eggnog, cinnamon and nutmeg in fluffy pancake form? Yes, please. But first, let’s back up: I had never even tried eggnog before last week. I know! And the strangest part is that I was still somehow dreaming of eggnog pancakes. The idea of plain eggnog weirded me out (What is…

Catching up + Pumpkin Gingerbread

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving…and two weeks after? I wasn’t intending to take this long of a break from blogging, but sometimes, life happens! Like, your laptop dies forever and you get sick (it’s not healthy to live in temperatures below 30… just saying). Oh yeah, and you fly to…

Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins

Happy October! Let’s start the month of holiday candy and pumpkin spice off with… healthy muffins. What? These are delicious! They have limited sugar in them, and applesauce instead of oil. And if you’re counting, they’re only 114 calories! Add a little peanut butter on top and you have the perfect post-workout…

Blueberry Banana Bread

I’m embarrassed that I didn’t think of this delicious combo sooner. It never even occurred to me to add blueberries to my banana bread because I was too busy thinking of chocolate (this applies to my whole life, basically). But now, I’ve seen the (blue) light! Blueberries have been on total…

Spinach & Sausage Egg Frittata

Pancakes, waffles, eggs and bacon — yes please! Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day, and most of my favorite foods are included in that. Although they’re not all Whole30-approved (sigh), I wanted to keep our breakfast-for-dinner tradition alive this month. So, I’ve been experimenting with different frittatas. This…

Copycat Cashew Cookie Larabar Bites

Whoever created the first granola bar is a genius. Side note: How bad is it that one of the few words I struggle spelling is genius? Eek! Anyway, granola bars are the epitome of convenient food: They don’t take up much space so you can store a constant supply in…

Strawberry Cinnamon Muffins

To the delight of my kitchen (but certainly not my bank account), I worked at Sur La Table in college. While there, my co-workers and I often talked about food (duh), and I apparently made so many comments about my mom and her homemade ways that someone finally remarked: “Where…
