Healthy “Ice Cream” Breakfast Bowl

When I fall in love with something new, I get the worst kind of tunnel vision… can’t-eat, can’t-sleep, can’t-focus-on-anything-else excitement because this is so amazing!

Sous Vide Poached Eggs in Advance

I’m so excited to share this trick because perfectly poached eggs can be so intimidating! Even once you have it down, it’s impossible to serve a big group all at once without crowding the pot and ending up with egg drop soup. Sous vide lets us poach a dozen eggs almost-but-not-quite all the way and refrigerate them until you’re ready. This…

Grilled Honey-Ginger Grapefruit

Ginger + honey + grapefruit might be my new favorite flavor for summer! Sweet local honey mellows out the tartness of the citrus, but it’s the freshly grated ginger that really shines. Cooking grapefruit pulls out the most gorgeous, vibrant colors for a beautiful breakfast to start your day. Broiled grapefruit has been an internet favorite for years, but I’m avoiding turning…

Today’s magic words: FLOURLESS. BLENDER. MUFFINS with no added sugar! This is the healthy breakfast muffin you didn’t know you needed. As much as I looooove perfectly soft, beautiful bakery muffins, a lot of them are really cupcakes without frosting. Nothing wrong with that… but not for every day. These muffins are true good-for-you with fruit, eggs, and oats. They…

Broken Yolk Congee

Last night was a rough one at our home. Between a doped-up puppy just out of surgery and a surprise round of food poisoning, no one got much sleep. Today’s looking much better after lots of napping on the couch but food interest is at an all-time low. Congee fits today perfectly – so simple, completely bare if you can’t…
