It’s Sunday morning and you’re trying to figure out what appetizing breakfast you want to feed the horde (aka the family). As they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and you want to start off the day for these little buggers with a pop of flavor! But you also don’t want to have to spend a whole lot of effort and time. Heard, loud and clear. That’s why these fluffy lemon blueberry pancakes are amazing! They are super quick to put together and don’t take long to cook. Which is nice when you want to change gears. Continue reading
Surprisingly, food is a big part of my life. (I know, complete shocker, right?!) Technically, it’s a big part of everyone’s life, as we need substance to fuel our bodies. However, I’m not just talking about a food for livelihood’s sake. I’m talking about the more adventurous side of food. The exploratory side, as it were. Which is why living in Spain was such an amazing experience!
Besides the culture and amazing sites, food was such a mind blowing experience when I lived there. With jamón iberico, cochinillo (baby pig) and a variety of tapas that would make your mouth salivate so much it would make Pavlov proud, it’s not hard to understand how someone could grow a spirit of culinary curiosity. That’s why I decided to tackle one recipe that I always loved ordering when I went out: Spanish Tortilla, also known as Tortilla Espanola! (Spanish accent required.) Continue reading
Happy Friday and a Happy Mother’s Day to all of those mother’s out there! I know it’s been awhile since our last encounter, but I hope all is well with everyone. I’ve missed blogging and trying out new recipes to share with everybody, but I had some unexpected medical issues arise and needed to tackle that first. #heartsurgery. Now that I’m back up Continue reading
A good morrow to you and happy Saturday!
I’ve been in a baking mood recently (if you haven’t noticed from last week’s post of Chocolate Banana Loaf). And as a result have decided to dedicate this week’s recipe to baking as well: Blueberry Lemon Loaf! I figure my previous posts were mostly savory, so why not spice things up a bit, eh? (I mean, who doesn’t enjoy a little spice in their life? The Spice Girls did, and it certainly worked for them. Now I’m dating myself….) Continue reading
Good Morning! Life is beautiful!

Good Morning Lovelies!
Have I got a recipe that will knock your socks off! Or actually help keep them on, since the weather is getting quite brisk outside. As you may have already gleaned, I LOVE breakfast. Not, like, not adore, but rather LOVE breakfast. I think it’s a great way to start the day, by getting fuel into your body! There have been studies proving that it improves your brain function, as Continue reading
Good morning and a happy Monday to you all!
I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! I was able to spend some quality time with friends and family and eat a whole lot of amazing food, so I can’t complain. 🙂 Speaking of, we had SO many leftovers after Thanksgiving, which got me thinking: “What type of leftover recipes could I try out?” Since we are still in the realm of leftovers, this week’s recipe focuses on how to creatively utilize leftovers you may have in your fridge to create a Thanksgiving Breakfast! Continue reading
Good morning and happy Saturday!
You may be saying to yourself, “But V, you normally post on Fridays?!” I know, I know, I just wanted to make sure you were paying attention. ; ) But in all honesty, I had a busy week with tests, practicals and projects for class and wasn’t able to get to post this until today. But I think the extra day of waiting is absolutely worth it for today’s recipe: Pumpkin French Toast! Continue reading
Happy Friday Lovelies!
Today begins our three day weekend for which we owe Christopher Columbus, aka Cristobal Colon, some appreciation; considering in 1492 he happened upon (or “discovered”) the New World. Can you imagine what the world would be like today if said discovering hadn’t been made at that specific point in history? What would have changed? Would we all still be here? Would we have had the same relationships? Met the same people? Had the same opportunities? Continue reading
So, I was pondering different dinner options that could be made in a jiffy (yes, I’m channeling my inner ’50s mom vibe), especially when you have a busy schedule. I wanted something that would pack a punch of protein, as my body is still trying to adjust to school this last month, and lately by the time I get home I’m hankering for some sustenance.
