Lemon Prosciutto Toast

A Weekend Toast. But seriously. Toast. This Toast. I made it twice in a row cause it was so mind-blowingly delicious. I know what you’re thinking… Yea, yea. Avocado toast. It’s tasty, but how great can it be? Trust me. It’s great. Also, I would encourage the fried prosciutto step. Don’t skip it. Prosciutto is…

Pomegranate Orange Breakfast Sausage

I live in a part of town where brunch is a pretty big deal. I get it. On the weekends, its super fun to wake up late and wander down the road to an awesome pancake spot and lounge with friends while sipping on bottomless coffee and mimosas (super healthy combo, amiright?). I personally take…

Thick Paleo Blueberry Pancakes

Pancake Saturday is now officially a thing in my house. I think I’ve kept a streak going for about 6 weeks now. Each Saturday has been different as I’ve toyed around with buckwheat, vegan, plantains, bananas, even chia seed versions! These are the classic blueberry variety. No shame in keeping it simple. The simple recipes are the…

Maca Plantain Pancakes

It’s not often that I find a meal I want to eat everyday for the rest of my life. But these pancakes are seriously in the running. The best part is that they are totally on the menu for February’s Clean Slate! Every year I set aside a month to do my Clean Slate protocol. It’s a chance…

Plantain Pancakes with Ginger Syrup

This might be my most favorite thing I’ve ever made. Not joking. I had made some candied ginger during the holidays and as a result, had a beautiful dark, rich syrup sitting in the fridge with no future purpose or prospects. I figured we would one day craft some delicious ginger-y cocktail. Well, we haven’t quite…

Bacon and Jalapeño Omlette

Other names suggested were: 1. The Jalap-acon Omlette 2. The Jalap-acon-tro Omlette They seemed a little too gimmicky for me, so I stuck with the original food spellings (plus I like using the ñ in Jalapeño). Enjoy this as a fancier-than-normal beginning to your day, or cook up a bunch for your weekend brunch! It’s not…

Blueberry Banana Bread Pudding

Here’s a fantastic idea for your post-holiday weekend brunch! (New Year’s Resolutions notwithstanding… more on that later.)   I made these for my romantic and relaxing Christmas morning with my husband. I wanted to use some blueberry scones that I over baked (whoopsie!) along with some new Le Creuset mini crocks that I scored at a garage…
