Fruit salad with yogurt dressing

I just love summer produce! All of my favorite fruits are at their prime in the summer so I take advantage during the season. This recipe works well with whatever fruits you have on hand so substitute pretty much anything. Everyone will love this delicious fruit salad tossed with a delicious honey-yogurt sauce.

Celebrate Pi Day with breakfast Asparagus Pie!


I love to celebrate pi day by eating pie for breakfast!  In previous years, I’ve had banana cream pie, chocolate pie, or apple pie.  I decided to go a little more adult route this year and celebrate the asparagus that is abundant in my fridge right now.  When my daughter saw breakfast she was disappointed that it wasn’t “real pie” but then inhaled it and asked for seconds.

Okay so this is probably technically a quiche but I’m not going to be so serious about such things.  Once you try it, I think we can agree that it is delicious cheesy asparagus goodness. Continue reading “Celebrate Pi Day with breakfast Asparagus Pie!”

Its Time for Migas Y’all


I’m taking y’all on a trip down to sunny Austin, TX for a traditional Tex Mex breakfast. You can step into nearly any self-respecting breakfast establishment in Austin and order Migas. This is the way that I make Migas but it can be made in a variety of ways.  The key is to scramble eggs with corn tortillas and some veggies. The result is always flavorful, comforting and a great way to start the day.

Norwegian Sweet Soup– and family traditions!

One of my first Christmas memories with my then-new-boyfriend 10 years ago  (now he’s my fabulous husband) was experiencing some of his deeply rooted family food traditions with his parents. Norweigan Sweet soup. Spritz cookies. Norwegian Krumkake. These foods have come to mean the holidays for me, and are things I look forward to eating every year around Thanksgiving and Christmas, as do my children. Growing up, I had a couple of family recipes that got handed down, but there was not really something we ate and made every year that had historical significance, so these traditions from my husband’s family have come to be a treasured part of my holidays. What traditional foods do you eat around the holidays?

To start our Thanksgiving this year, we had Sweet Soup and Swedish pancakes for breakfast. The sweet fruity goodness of the soup warms me heart and my belly! Continue reading “Norwegian Sweet Soup– and family traditions!”

Tasty Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins

I am a Pinterest junkie! Why am I telling you this? Well let me tell you, I did a little trading this last weekend after I went to volunteer at one of the local BBFC sites. (I just love volunteering for BBFC! You meet so many wonderful people!) Anyway, one of the gals that I have become friends with wished that she had gotten some of the baking potatoes like I did and I was wishing I had contributed for the beautiful strawberries like she did. Well, one thing lead to another and we were splitting up my potatoes and her strawberries. We each left as happy campers! Continue reading “Tasty Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins”

Baked Strawberry and Banana Oatmeal

This baked oatmeal was so delicious and warm on a cool, lazy Saturday morning. It is also healthy and used some bananas that were hoping downhill. My daughter had to ask me if this was dessert and demanded we have it again the next morning – high marks from my 4 year old. Continue reading “Baked Strawberry and Banana Oatmeal”

Wheat Berry Snacks


A few months ago, I contributed for the soft white wheat berries on a whim.  I had never ground my own wheat and didn’t even own a device that would do it.  I read that you could eat it like oatmeal in the morning or in tabbouleh salad so I was convinced that I would find fabulous things to do with them.

Breakfast Wraps

Breakfast wraps are healthy, fast, convenient, and yummy!  I like to make my wraps with scrambled eggs, ham, bacon, cheese, veggies, and salsa.  There are many varieties of breakfast wraps.  I like to use the wrap add-on pack and make scrambled egg wraps to freeze.  After I wrap them, I roll them up in waxed paper, put them in a ziplock baggie, label and date them, and freeze.   Continue reading “Breakfast Wraps”
