Breakfast/Brunch

Beet, Orange, and Ginger Smoothie

I’ve been loving my morning smoothies so much that I recently tried to give up coffee to try to simplify my morning routine. Spoiler alert: I lasted a day and a half. I was already down to just a small cup in the morning (most of the time), and I thought it would just make [read more →]

Spiced Coconut Almond Granola

I’m normally an eggs for breakfast kind of a person, but my new class schedule has me cutting majorly back on the time I spend making breakfast. It takes me a solid hour and a half in rush hour by subway to get to my classes in Brooklyn, and early morning tests and quizzes mean [read more →]

Smoky Chickpeas with Spinach and a Fried Egg

I’m trying to finally get in a routine now that we’re settled in our new apartment and both starting classes. For me, that means stocking up the fridge and making a meal plan. Our meal plans are honestly never really set in stone, but we try to plan for at least a few things we [read more →]

I get giddy whenever I pick up our weekly CSA box. I’m sure the excitement will wear off after awhile (maybe). This week we got huge bags of braising mix and mesclun, along with red Russian kale, scallions, bok choy, head lettuce, fennel, cilantro and green garlic. Tonight’s CSA-inspired meal featured the scallions. Matt and [read more →]

Kale and Pasta Frittata

I’ve talked about how much I love frittatas as a way to use leftovers. This recipe is great for not only using leftovers or spare vegetables, but also to clean out the pantry. Whenever I notice there are several partial bags of different types of pasta in our pantry, I make a pasta frittata. Having [read more →]

For me, it doesn’t get much better than a sweet potato hash for breakfast. I’ve been trying to make it something that’s quick and easy to throw together when I wake up because if something seems too complicated to make when I first roll out of bed, I just won’t do it. I’ll just make [read more →]

Egg and Asparagus Toasts

Phew. We are finally moved and (mostly) unpacked! I really should be more organized and used to moving at this point. I mean, since college I’ve moved from Philadelphia to Chicago to NYC to Boston. Here’s to hoping the next move (in, oh, 3 months) will be easier! It has been awesome to return to [read more →]

Shiitake Mushroom and Onion Frittata

Meal planning for Matt and me lately has consisted of buying dozens (that’s right, dozens) of eggs and a variety of vegetables, and sort of winging it every night. As a result, we make a lot of frittatas. We usually use Marco Canora’s zucchini frittata recipe from his book Salt to Taste as a guide, [read more →]

Baked Eggs with Cauliflower and Tomatoes

Now that my marathon training is in full force, Saturday brunches after my long runs have become a regular thing. And I love it. There’s seriously nothing better than coming back from a 13 mile run to a delicious brunch and some mimosas on the deck. Matt and I have been making a list of [read more →]

I know what you’re thinking. Savory oatmeal? Let me explain. I’m really not a sweet breakfast person. I usually have an egg sandwich, or a regular sandwich even. Sometimes I’ll just eat leftovers from the night before. Oatmeal? Not so much. I go through phases where I try to get myself to like it. It’s [read more →]

The Perfect Fried Egg

If you’ve read my blog posts lately, you know I love a good runny egg yolk on just about anything. My typical cooking methods for cooking runny eggs are poaching, cooking over-easy, and now sous vide. I was never very good at frying an egg sunny-side up. Is it just me, or is it really [read more →]

Braised Kale and Grits with a Fried Egg

Instant grits have their place – they’re tasty when loaded up with lots of cheese, butter, cream, or all of the above – but you don’t need to go overboard with good grits. They have a beautiful texture and nutty flavor on their own. My favorite grits are from Anson Mills. Unfortunately, they can be [read more →]

My typical Sunday consists of rolling out of bed at around noon (I’m still not a morning person) and heading to brunch, usually at Posto. Last weekend I actually planned ahead and bought ingredients to make brunch. Why don’t I think of that more often? It’s cheaper, and has got to be healthier than eating [read more →]

When Matt and I decided to buy a truffle for Valentine’s Day, I knew we needed an egg course. We both love eggs and truffles and eggs seem to be a classic combination. We kind of wanted to go all out with these eggs. I was envisioning some kind of silky, slow-cooked scrambled eggs on [read more →]

Eggs In Purgatory

I’m not sure how the name Eggs in Purgatory came about, but it’s basically eggs baked in tomato sauce. It’s also my new favorite brunch dish. The dish is very basic and starts with a good tomato sauce. My go-to tomato sauce is the Rich Tomato Sauce from Marco Canora’s Salt to Taste. The recipe [read more →]

Huevos Rancheros

Matt and I randomly had all of the makings of huevos rancheros sitting in the fridge last Sunday and – aside from getting some jalapeno in my eye* – it was one of the best impromptu brunches to ever happen! We bought this huge bag of masa flour to make tacos with homemade tortillas several [read more →]

Brunch: Biscuits and Eggs

Matt took an overnight bus from New York last Saturday, so I made us brunch while he caught up on some sleep: scrambled eggs with chives, homemade biscuits with pepper jelly, and sliced heirloom tomatoes that my neighbor gave us from her garden. I also may have felt a little bad for being too tired [read more →]
