Kiwi Strawberry Spinach Smoothie

Kiwi Strawberry Spinach Smoothie

Does anyone know why strawberry and kiwi’s are always paired together? Is it the sweet & sour/tart combo. Regardless, it’s definitely a winning combination. This smoothie really highlights the sweet sour combination with a two toned beauty. You have to make each color separately though, […]

Whole Wheat Waffle with Kiwis, Strawberries, & Mango

I bet you won’t believe how I became the owner of a new waffle maker…. I know the suspense is killing you. Well, here it is… I won my families March Madness pool! My sister really wanted an airfryer and I have really wanted a […]

Leek Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust

Leek Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust

Leeks and Quiche are a pairing that has stood the test of time. I have always love to take quintessential ingredient pairs and dishes and upgrade the dish with a healthier twist. This is where the sweet potatoes come in. The crust of this dish is made […]

Kale Shakshuka

Kale Shakshuka

I am definitely on the shakshuka bandwagon. It’s taken me some time to come up with a recipe in the style of shakshuka sans tomato, but now that I have there is no stopping me. And the best thing about today’s recipe is it is […]

Challah French Toast with Persimmon & Pear

Challah French Toast with Persimmon & Pear

Apple rose pastries were trending throughout my Instagram feed last year. This year, I am reviving this easy pastry by adding persimmons to the mix. Persimmons are a beloved holiday fruit, but pretty difficult to find on the east coast, due to a short fleeting […]

I haven’t stopped eating in two days and there is no end in sight. And today’s recipe is perfect way to use up all your leftover squash! I have been missing out on the whole shakshuka/eggs in purgatory trend, given that I cannot stand tomato […]

Purple Tortilla Espanola

Purple Tortilla Espanola

Coffee Flour Dutch Baby Pancake

Coffee Flour Dutch Baby Pancake

Finally! An answer to the age old question! Can you drink your coffee AND eat it too? Yes! Yes you can! When I found coffee flour at Trader Joes a couple weeks ago, I knew immediately I wanted to make a dutch baby pancake with […]
