Breakfast is a toughie for me most days. I love prepping ahead so that I can roll out of bed, take two sips of coffee, grab something from the fridge and be DONE. Mornings seem to move so fast and by the time I think of what I actually want for breakfast and make it, I’m running out the door. Anyone else feel me?
I’ve been dying yo make a deliciously moist olive oil cake ever since I went to a restaurant and they served it for dessert with a dollop of homemade whip. I was so taken aback, I had no clue olive oil cake even existed let alone was so delicious! I made it a point to put it on my recipe bucket list and today is the day I get to share it with you babes.
When we first moved to California we took a bike ride to Balboa Island. At a red light, there was this lady who was finishing up a run and we got talking. Naturally our “bahh we just moved here” came out within the first sentence and if nothing else I remember from the conversation, I remember she told us we HAD to have a chocolate covered banana.
Memorial Day is only a couple weeks away which means it’s the unofficial kickoff to summer aka my favorite season. I have a newfound love for grilling because it’s something you can prep hours in advance (hello juicy marinade), but it’s also easy cleanup and makes dinner come together in minutes. Woot woot!
You know those snacks that are of so addicting that you have a love/hate relationship with them? I knew you’d get me. That’s how I feel about these cinnamon roll bliss balls. First, of all, everyone loves them. From my kids, to my husband, to me (obviously), we’re all grabbing for them.
The unofficial start to summer is only a couple weeks away. Two things immediately come to mind. First, it’s grilling season, baby!! Second, fresh and crunchy salads are my jam. Lately? I want something refreshing with a sweet and tangy taste that has that, “I need to eat this entire plate and grab some seconds” urgency about it.
In college, one of my all time favorite things to eat were nachos. Tons and tons of nachos. They also had unlimited sheet cake which I helped myself to every single day, but that’s a different story. But but but what is college for if not for making poor eating choices? If you answered, “Actually, college is for achieving higher education and setting yourself up for long term success, duh.” Bravo my friend, bravo. Me? I’m over here with my bagged wine and nachos.
I remember buying something on Amazon one day and a product popped up they thought I might like (aw how thoughtful are they?). They were those silicon egg rings to make your sunny side up eggs into a perfect circle. I obviously bought them. Would I do it again?
