Eat This: Deep Dish Spinach Artichoke Quiche

I used to think quiches were hard and way too many calories for what you got (ie how they tasted).  That’s until I started making my own.  This is one of the most delicious things I’ve made in a while.  We both loved it (the older little isn’t a fan of eggs). Being a mom […]

Eat This: Italian Sweet Pepper Quiche

In Wake Forest, North Carolina, a place I called home for 3.5 years in my twenties, sits a well-known favorite of the Olde English Tea Room.  As you walk in the door, you are greeted with the fragrance of enough tea to make any tea-lover happy. They had delicious cakes that friends of mine baked […]

Eat This: Banana Pancake Oats

This breakfast reminds of two of my favorite morning meals.  Pancakes at Guglhupf in Durham, NC.  And oats in the Bay Area of California with my Dad.  Let me tell you about them.

Eat This: Broccoli, Cheddar & Bacon Quiche

Love having women over to live life with me, eat girly food, and be creative. This was the scene at our dining room table the weekend of Thanksgiving.  I had some sweet girlfriends over to celebrate creativity and enjoy getting to know one another. With any girls’ brunch, I think some egg dish is customary, […]

What Oatmeal Taught Me About Marriage (Cinnamon Raisin Honey Oats)

Just for disclosure sake: I have permission from my husband to share this story. He said he learned a lot from it early in our marriage and he wants to make sure that others learn the same lesson for the good of their marriage! We had probably been married three months or so and having […]

Breakfast Tacos

We don’t own chickens, nor do I ever plan on it.  Might be nice to walk out and get fresh eggs every morning, but I’d rather rely on a company like Great Day Farms eggs – local, natural, gorgeous, and absolutely healthy and delicious!  I heard there company at the AR Women’s Bloggers event here […]

Pumpkin French Toast

When the husband is gone, its a good idea to tantalize him to come back home if you send him delicious pictures of pumpkin French toast. Really – I did send him a picture and he said I was mean. I’ll make these again for him. But, these are perfect with a topping of real […]

Strawberry Buttermilk Pancakes

The taste of summer – at breakfast! I went strawberry picking the other week, got about 6 lbs and was exhausted.  That’s what being pregnant will do for you.  Well, I had some left and they were just about to be gone (meaning, they were going bad) so I wanted to use them up.  So, […]
