PANCAKES!

Yeah.  Not Gluten Free.  I’ve yet to try this with gluten free flours, but since a little gluten is going to inconvenience me more than do harm to me, sometimes I just go all out gluten cheat day.  This is a tried and true pancake recipe.  I hate using a mix, even though it’s reminicent…

Food Porn: Nick’s Family Restaurant

  Seriously Snarfy?  No posts for almost a month?  WTF? I’m sorry, people.  I’m working on catching up.  I promise.  Life has just been… well… life.  In the meantime, here’s some food porn from a local favorite.  It’s a Joe’s Special with jack cheese and home fries.  OM NOM NOM!

Food Porn: Breakfast

I’m sorry guys. I’ve been really bad about staying on top of my posts. Ideally, I would have the movie night nom post up either on movie night or the day after. Here I am posting last week’s dinner and it’s come back around to the next movie night already. Dang. Life just gets in…

Food Porn: Farmhouse Eatery and Bar

So how ’bout brunch, huh? Yeah, that’s a bacon mushroom omelet with a side of truffle fries.  We stopped at the Farmhouse Eatery & Bar for brunch the other day and this is what I ended up with.  OMG.  It was so glorious, but I’m glad that we walked 5 miles that day.  Check out…

Food Porn: Cafe Besalu

  Breakfast at Cafe Besalu is something I look forward to every time I visit Seattle.  Their pastries are done in house.  Get anything that’s fresh out of the oven, like that cheese brioche in the lower right corner.  There’s also a chocolate croissant, strawberry danish, and apricot danish on those other plates there.

Poached Eggs

I feel like poached eggs don’t get enough play.  They kind of get lumped into “diet eggs” but I think a perfectly poached egg is something that is pretty freaking majestic.  If I still ate toast, these would be amazing on some sourdough. Poached Eggs Eggs White Vinegar Crack the egg into a small bowl…

Cheaterquiles

Chilaquiles are basically breakfast nachos.  For serious.  And I’m always surprised when people don’t know what I’m talking about when I talk about chilaquiles.  I mean, they’re amazing.  SO GOOD.  Especially after you’ve made nachos the night before and have a lot of good things leftover. However, I just kind of fake chilaquiles at home….

Waffle Iron Hashbrowns

OMG, I frakking *LOVE* hashbrowns!!!  I don’t have them a lot, but they’re actually one of the reasons I could never be strictly paleo for an extended period of time.  And when I make them at home, I do it in the waffle iron. Wait.  WUT? Yeah, I said waffle iron.  It’s not really a…

Green Smoothie

I have a green smoothie for breakfast pretty much every morning.  It’s a great way to start the day out right and get those fruits and veggies in.  Now I’ve seen a lot of variants of the green smoothie, and my basic recipe isn’t very sweet.  I try to watch how much fruit I consume…
