I have fell into the routine every morning of either making Greek yogurt with berries, smoothies, or just grabbing a granola bar on my way out the door.
Recently, I have been finding myself hungry around 10:30-11:00 am so I was determined to create a quick and easy breakfast that would sustain my hunger further through the day. Not only is this cobbler packed with protein, but the warm oats and berries are a comforting morning meal perfectly paired with a cup of coffee! Read more
The summer season provides us with so many beautiful fruits. I am all about simplicity, but I think it’s about time we experiment with pairing these fruits with some of the other bright summer flavors rather than than serving them alone. I love the saying, “what grows together, goes together.” Some of my favorite summer combinations have been fruits and herbs.
This recipe was greatly inspired by Yotam Ottolenghi, a co-owner of four restaurants and co-author of several successful cookbooks, who has quickly become an idol to me. His inspiration comes from his Mediterranean background and unapologetic obsession with ingredients. When I was in London, I was fortunate enough to be able visit his restaurant Nopi. It was one of the most breathtaking dining experiences I have ever had! Read more
Waffles can be some of the easiest ways cater to the sweet tooth in your family, but on the contrary, be made healthy by the addition of fruit and protein for breakfast.
I am personally a huge fan of anything lemon poppy seed! I think it’t the perfect combination of sweet and tart, especially for a meal like breakfast.
This recipe is a wonderful opportunity to learn how to make a compote. Compotes can be made with almost any fruit and are a wonderful way to preserve that seasonal fresh fruit taste. Fruit compotes can be used as toppings or I have even seen compotes used inside recipes like cupcakes or scones. Fruit compotes are a wonderful ingredient to have on hand in your fridge all year long and only take about 10 minutes to make!
Yes.. you read the title correctly, a Greek Danish. This weirdly brilliant idea was sparked when I met a guy who was literally half Greek and half Danish. I was honestly a little skeptical about the what the outcome would be going into this little experiment, but this pastry hybrid might just be the next big thing! The savory and sharp Greek flavors pair perfectly with the sweet flaky Danish pastry. All topped with a dollop of lemon curd for an added brightness.
Now I am going to be completely honest with you, this is no “30 minute Danish.” This recipe takes a lot of time and love! Read more
Tacos might just be one of my favorite foods to cook and prepare. I know what you’re thinking… she went all the way to culinary school in Ireland to master the art of tacos? Well no. I can actually say I did not prepare one taco while I was there! Now experimenting with different recipes and flavor combinations back home, I love the never ending possibilities when it comes to tacos. Read more
I believe that we eat certain foods in a particular way in order to remember who we are. As simple as how you build a sandwich or the style of soup you choose all stems from a subconscious feeling of comfort and memory. For me, I will always choose the combination of turkey and avocado on my sandwich because it was what my mother always packed in my lunch box! Those flavors evoke a sense of nostalgia for me, that I know will always be with me.
I hope that this sandwich encourages you to fall into your comfort zone of the flavors you love! That’s what a sandwich is and should be! Read more
