Breakfast


Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Y’all, when I gave up eggs for breakfast, I was like “WTF am I supposed to eat?” My go-to weekend breakfast was eggs, bacon, and potato.  But as I practice a more plant-based diet, all I can really have now is potato.  So what’s a girl to do? I knew oatmeal was an option, but I never grew up eating it because whenever I had it, it was so bland.  So if you’re reading this and thinking of skipping over it because it’s just another oatmeal recipe, I beg you to give this one a try.  Especially if you love […]


Banana Pancakes

If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know that my favorite meal of the day is breakfast.  And I can definitely load up on the bad stuff: pancakes, waffles, cinnamon rolls, french toast, etc.  Those by far are my guilty pleasures.  But it’s so much freaking sugar and for someone who is trying to be more conscious of how I’m eating, it can be hard to resist. But that’s why you love me right?  I never tell you that you can’t have those indulgences and cravings.  If you want it, then have it, just be wiser about […]

5 Apple Recipes for Fall

This past weekend, the family and I went up to Northern Georgia in Blue Ridge to try some apple picking at Mercier Orchard.  Apple picking is a fond memory I had growing up in Illinois.  I remember coming home with bags full of apples.  Funny thing is, I don’t remember making anything with them, simply snacking. I loved it so much growing up as a kid, I suppose I use having a daughter as an excuse to try it again (although do I really need an excuse?)  She absolutely loved it.  There were apples in both hands and she did […]
