Another health craze has hit the food sphere, and this one you will want to pay attention to for sure. Chia seeds are trending and have been creeping into everything from health drinks to crackers, but what the heck are they and why do you need to eat them?
If you love avocados as much as I do, then you"ll be pretty excited about this super simple breakfast or brunch recipe. The Avocado Smash has become the newest food trend for this delicious ripe green fruit. Very similar to that of guacamole, this smash up of avocados, citrus and crushed red peppers, on freshly toasted bread definitely makes breakfast the most important meal of the day.
A classic Southern dish that you can enjoy for brunch or dinner, Shrimp and Grits is super simple to make and packs a lot of delicious flavors. As the saying goes, "Bacon makes everything better"—and in this recipe, you use bacon drippings to cook the shrimp! Parsley, garlic, jalapeño, and lemon brighten up the entire dish.
I truly love Kale! I can eat it all day long, so why not feature it as the star of my morning meal. For this breakfast I decided to step out of the traditional box with Lacinato kale salad tossed in a delicious lemon and caper vinaigrette with some poached eggs and crispy pancetta. It was so yummy and I am sure you will love it too.
Homemade pancakes really hit the spot. There is nothing like waking up to a stack of warm blueberry and banana pancakes topped with maple syrup. I know it is easy to grab the box of pancake mix but this recipe is so delicious you might want to think twice. It really doesn't take much effort to make pancakes, so why not feel like a chef and whip these up for the whole family.
A Mexican breakfast really hits the spot, there is something about salsa, cheese, and eggs that I cannot resist. As I mentioned in my Lazy Woman's Skillet recipe, it is also my husband's favorite. This recipe is a hearty and tasty way to combine my favorite ingredients into one meal.
I look forward to waking up on the weekends to make brunch, some weekends more than others. When I feel less motivated to whip something magnificent up, I generally make a breakfast skillet. Luckily for me, it is my husband's favorite breakfast (other than burritos). They are so simple to make and a good way to save random food in your fridge from spoiling. Here is what I came up with this morning, but you can substitute the vegetables, type of meat, etc.
