Homemade Baked (not Fried) Whole-Wheat Tortillas

IMG_5849

Hello everyone! It’s been a while, and I’m so excited to be back. Life got crazy for a while there (you know how it goes), but now I’ve settled into a rhythm. I’ve been doing so much cooking and experimenting in the kitchen that I just couldn’t stand not sharing anymore.

If today’s recipe sounds complicated and/or scary, fear not. It’s amazingly simple and I’ve made them three times now. They’re worth the work every. single. time. Continue reading

English Muffin Bread

Imagine a bread that takes 5 minutes to throw together, rises for under an hour, and bakes for 25 minutes.  Now imagine that this bread has a wonderful yeasty chew, a hint of sweetness, a moist interior, and is in fact delicious.  Finally, imagine that it has a crisp cornmeal coating and little nooks and crannies inside, just waiting to be filled with butter and jam.

Yam/Sweet Potato “Powerballs”

Have you heard of Bodyrock.tv? No? (I do have a warning: The photography/ videography is a bit… racy. I’d say borderline not-safe-for-work. The women on the site are in phenomenal shape, but they also don’t dress very modestly, so be warned!)
If you’re looking for something new and different for the gym, or just for a great workout, check it out. The workouts are generally designed to be high-intensity and last for about 12 minutes apiece. I haven’t done one in a while, but my good friend Anne and I used to bodyrock all the time during grad school! We loved them.

That being said, they also have some unique recipes to try. Take, for instance, Zuzana’s Power Balls. While the text of the post is a little inappropriate (ha), I loved the idea of having a nutrition-packed snack to have along with breakfast (or in the middle of the day when my energy gets low).  Continue reading

Make Ahead Breakfast: Frittata

I had the first day of my (new!) full-time job today, so this post is going to be a quick one! I think in addition to providing you all with some quality recipes, I’d also like to occasionally provide you with some that can be altered based on your mood/tastes/what you have in the fridge.

Make Ahead Breakfast: Egg Cups

As big breakfast people, my parents make these all the time. They take about 20 minutes, tops, and are good for almost a week’s worth of breakfast (depending on how hungry you are in the morning). I’m a huge proponent of eating breakfast (with a giant mug of black coffee, yum) right after you wake up– let’s get that metabolism going! I also wake up hungry, so the easier, the better!Having not had the chance to make these with my parents, I’m not sure where they got the original recipe, but they just kind of throw in whatever they have in the fridge at the time.  Continue reading
