Paleo Pumpkin Spice Granola

Soooo I totally jumped on the pumpkin spice band wagon and made pumpkin spice granola.  While it’s still in the high 80’s here in Dallas I am trying my hardest to get in the fall spirit.  Fall is the one season I miss the most since moving from the Northeast to the south. Nothing like fresh apple picking, the leaves changing,  and going to a real pumpkin patch.

Anyway back to the granola… This stuff is seriously amazing! I love the blend of the nuts with the pumpkin seeds and the little sweetness the chocolate chips add. Continue reading Paleo Pumpkin Spice Granola

Sweet Potato Hash Brown Cups

I’m sure by now you have all figured out that I love to make foods in a muffin pan. They look so darned cute and usually, and I use that term loosely, helps me with portion control. Umm, let’s just say these hash browns got totally out of portion control! I could not stop eating them!

Breakfast Taquitos

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Not that I need a reason to eat Mexican food, my absolute favorite, I made these fantastic Breakfast Taquitos to celebrate. They may be called “Breakfast ” Taquitos, but you really could eat them any time of day.

Breakfast Taquitos

These take a little prep time so next time I think I will double the batch. Then freeze the extras for later in the week when my cravings for these little buggers kick in
 That is if there are any extras left 🙂

Veggie Egg Casserole

Our vacation is quickly coming to an end 🙁  It’s now time to start cleaning out the fridge.

Since we are all veggie lovers I had lots to choose from when making this veggie egg casserole. I decided on potatoes, pepper, onions, mushrooms, and fresh spinach, but any veggie combo will work.

Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Nothing says Sunday morning more than scrambled eggs. The search for the perfect scrambled eggs took me to this Gordon Ramsay recipe. It’s actually more of a technique rather than a recipe. Paired with a side of sautĂ©ed veggies not only makes delicious, but adds nutritional value to start your day.

perfect scrambled eggs

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs (I love farm fresh brown eggs)
  • 1 small pad of butter (just a little for some flavor)
  • 1 tablespoon scallions

Directions

  1.  Heat pan over medium heat. Break eggs right into the pan. Stir with a rubber spatula until mixed. It is kind of like making a risotto, stir, stir, stir. Once the eggs begin to set remove from heat and you guessed it, stir. Add butter and return to heat. Keep removing and putting pan back to heat eggs. Not sure why this works, but that’s what Gordon Ramsay did and they tasted great!  Once eggs are cooked add the scallions. 
  2. Serve up with a side of your favorite sautéed veggies. I had some spinach, broccoli, and red peppers that needed to be used up!
