weekend special: the leftover veggie frittata
weekend special: the leftover veggie frittata

I have a busy life, unlike my parents who went to the grocery store religiously, every Saturday morning, I’m only able to get the car out and do a big shop about once every two weeks (if I’m lucky). The rest of the time I find myself running out on my lunch break to scavenge [...]

hawaiian breakfast

In lovely, small family tradition, this meal transforms last night’s leftovers into a delicious island-style brunch. ¬†Years ago, I lived near a little brunch spot in Manhattan Beach, California that was open from about 10:00-3:00 and served Hawaiian Brunch. From what I remember, there were only a few things on the menu… chicken teriyaki with [...]

B&B: blackberry brunch and ham

This bright and simple bed & breakfast style brunch is comprised of a fried egg and fresh mozzarella sliced perched atop a slice of non-buttered multi-grain toast, with a pickled carrot.

brunch: what’s in the bowl?
brunch: what's in the bowl?

So, what’s in the bowl… brunch!! More specifically, hiding under the cumin-topped poached egg is a saute of spinach, dandelion greens, roasted golden beets, a couple sliced caper berries and a smidge of pickled garlic. Once sauteed, I tossed the veggies with some lemon sardine salad dressing (yes, I said sardine… funny thing though, it [...]

brunch: polenta porridge breakfast bowl

Having company is the best… feeding them, while working all day, going out at night and juggling home life, sometimes calls for a bit more creativity, especially if you can’t just hop in your car and run to the supermarket. Shopping, for me, usually involves walking to the train, going into the city (about 20+ [...]

the 10 minute brunch
the 10 minute brunch

I am in serious need of groceries, but somehow I scraped together a medley of straggling ingredients for this 10 minute brunch… 5 minutes staring at the fridge, 5 minutes whipping it up. So what’s for brunch.. the very last of the arugula, some leftover pico from the taco platter, the last 2 eggs drizzled [...]

breakfast: eating well is quick and easy
breakfast: eating well is quick and easy

I am not a breakfast person. Brunch, yes, but breakfast, no. This could have something to do with the fact that when I was a child I was shipped off each morning to a private school that was two bus rides away. And each day, by the time I got to school, breakfast would make [...]

brunch: veggie frittata

If I had to choose a favorite meal, it would be brunch! To me, brunch, more than any other meal, allows for the most creativity, resourcefulness and diversity. As far as ingredients are concerned brunch usually goes one of two ways in my house – It’s either envisioned on a bright sunny stroll through the [...]

countryside brunch: polenta and eggs

It’s no secret- lazy weekend mornings refresh my soul and I LOVE BRUNCH. I wake up, put on some coffee, walk and feed the dog, and then walk through the apartment tying open all the curtains letting the sun shine in. And if it’s gloomy out, I do the same nonetheless.¬† Even though I find [...]

brunch: the farmers market deception
brunch: the farmers market deception

One of my favorite warm weather weekend activities is going to the farmers market with someone special and then coming home and concocting brunch with our farm-fresh finds. So, okay, it’s still winter, the only one special is myself, I’m hungry.. and I deserve lovely food!! So here’s my scrape-together-whatever-looks-good-in-the-refrigerator into a delicious not-quite-farmers-market brunch. [...]

breakfast tacos: huevos chipotle with greek yogurt
breakfast tacos: huevos chipotle with greek yogurt

The first thing I noticed when I moved in to my new neighborhood last year was the complete lack of natural foods and organic produce at my local supermarkets. What I did find, however, was an assortment of Spanish and Polish goods. So while I now have to import healthy organic veggies, I have also [...]
