Vanilla Chai Cardamom Scones

Vanilla Chai Cardamom Scones

Starting this weekend I plan to wrap myself in all things cozy for the next, oh, eight months or so. Changing seasons always feels like a fresh start and there’s so many things to look forward to – right now, that’s oversized knit sweaters and […]

Berry Yogurt Melon Bowls

Berry Yogurt Melon Bowls

I’m loving this slow roll into August, which here in Colorado means booming thunderstorms, bright-blue sunny skies, or the lightest of snow dustings on any given day. These mornings call for a loose, low-key, choose-your-own-adventure kind of breakfast. Adding granola, sliced almonds, or toasted coconut? […]

Peach & Basil Coconut Smoothie

Peach & Basil Coconut Smoothie

I can’t get enough of peach + basil this summer, it’s so fresh and bright! Colorado peaches are getting extra juicy and sweet so I’m packing them into every meal possible. After the amaaaaazing peach grilled cheese sandwiches with brie & basil, I had a handful […]

Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Potato Boats

Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Potato Boats

Good morning! These cheesy potato boats are a great filling, hearty breakfast to start your day. Scooped-out baked potatoes stuffed with crumbled breakfast sausage are the perfect base for a runny egg & extra cheddar. Potatoes & sausage aren’t exactly the most photogenic fillings, but […]

Spiced Banana Pancakes with Cardamom Honey Syrup

Spiced Banana Pancakes with Cardamom Honey Syrup

Father’s Day doesn’t get enough brunch love, so these pancakes are a shoutout to my dad – he might not have taught me how to cook, but he definitely taught me how to eat! Spicy banana pancakes were his crowning achievement in the kitchen and […]

Loaded Chorizo Cornmeal Pancakes

Loaded Chorizo Cornmeal Pancakes

Happy May!! Colorado celebrated with nearly a foot of snow this weekend, so while most of you are all about smoothie bowls & iced tea I’m still thinking hot, rich comfort food. These loaded Mexican-flavor pancakes definitely do the trick – ultra-savory and topped with […]

Healthy “Ice Cream” Breakfast Bowl

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! (Just kidding about the can’t-eat part. I can always eat.) So I disappeared last week because I got so obsessed with something […]

Apple & Rosemary Chicken Sausage Skillet

Apple & Rosemary Chicken Sausage Skillet

Friends! This is it: your one-skillet, family-pleasing, nutritious dinner plan. Easy to toss together and so good that it won’t last long! Sauteing apples + onions + chicken sausage + rosemary + cinnamon makes a knock-em-dead skillet that – bonus – is good for you! This […]

Pigs in a Blanket Bites

Pigs in a Blanket Bites

Why haven’t we done this before? This is traditional pigs in a blanket without the assembly work – sausage balls baked into mini pancake bites! Simple and so good for quick breakfasts when you’re tired of cereal. Besides just four (!) ingredients, dipping in warm, […]

Sous Vide Poached Eggs in Advance

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 […]
