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!
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 ;)
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!
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!
