    Foodie Friday :: Blueberry Breakfast Cake

    Apr 20, 2012 Foodie Friday
    A few weekends ago I had my family here for a visit and decided to cook breakfast in rather than go out to eat - While my go-to breakfast is usually waffles or pancakes with some bacon and fruit, I find it a bit hard to keep the waffles/pancakes from getting soggy if I'm cooking for more than 4 people. Nothing is as tasty as a waffle just as it's coming out of the iron :) I decided to make a classic breakfast - Scrambled eggs, bacon, fresh fruit and some sort of muffin. As I was browsing the internet, I ran across this interesting take on a blueberry muffin on Alexandra's Kitchen - and I liked the idea that it was a breakfast cake. I made a single batch and it was perfect for 7 people (3 of which were men) - I also loaded mine up with a bit more blueberries than the recipe called for. The only thing I would have done differently is brown the top of the cake just a bit longer to get more of a golden color - otherwise, YUM! Click HERE to find the Recipe on Alexandra's Kitchen. Hope you love it!

    Foodie Friday 3.15

    Foodie Friday

    Mar 16, 2012 Foodie Friday
    Happy Friday!! The weather here has been GLORIOUS . Sunny and in the mid 70's to low 80's...and it's only March. This weather gets me super excited all my upcoming spring shoots! Due to the warm weather I decided to make a refreshing, healthy wrap...that I've been eating for dinner and lunch a couple times this week already! I don't have a name for it, so I'll just call it my Ultimate Veggie  Hummus Wrap. I LOVE cucumbers so I load them up in my wrap. Ingredients you'll need :: Tortillas :: I like to use a green spinach tortilla or red chile tortilla (no it's not spicy) Hummus :: I love all Hummus but for this particular wrap I think garlic hummus or white bean hummus is best Cucumbers :: skinned and chopped...lots of them ;) Alfalfa sprouts Baby spinach Chopped tomatoes That's it! Easy Peasy and SUPER HEALTHY! Eat it with a side of your favorite fruit or blue chips! Let me know what ya think!

    Foodie Friday :: My current favorite [healthy] breakfast

    Mar 09, 2012 Foodie Friday
    Happy Friday! Today's foodie Friday is super simple but so yummy! I LOVE breakfast, If it weren't so terrible for my body I love to  eat an assortment of waffles, pastries, pancakes, bacon, biscuits...you name it...for breakfast everyday. But we all know that is not reality. So as of late I have added added a new, easy, and healthy snack to my usual morning green tea. I take about 1/2 a cup of the 2%, low fat, small curd Breakstone Cottage Cheese + a little honey swirled on top + a LIGHT sprinkle of your favorite granola + fresh fruit. I typically use blueberries, blackberries or strawberries. Whatever is on sale/in season :) Now I love to eat...and I can eat a lot - but I promise this will stick with you until lunch. It is such a yummy low calorie, high protein, low carb breakfast with just enough sweet for me. I'm getting excited because this spring is gearing up fast and I have so many gorgeous shoots to share with you in the upcoming weeks! Enjoy the weekend, friends!
