Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

I tried overnight oats before and really wanted to like them. Unfortunately, whatever recipes I followed before just didn’t do it for me. I couldn’t hang with the texture, let alone the cold oats. I was never big on oatmeal before so I just kind of thought that oatmeal in any shape or form wasn’t…

Avocado, Chicken, & Egg Salad

So I’ve been doing some clean eating meal plans with Johanna at Love Your Health again to clean up after the delicious horror story that was eating around the holidays. In January, I did her free 5-day Whole Food Challenge with my whole family and some friends to get back in the habit of eating better….

Cassava Flour Waffles

Hi. It’s been a while. Like a long while. I’m not going to go into this long thing about why I’ve been neglecting this blog (again), but I will say that I’m trying to get over my post paralysis that’s triggered by self doubt. I always want to revamp this site because it’s never what…

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…
