    Huevos Rancheros

    You GUYS, I finally did it!   I love, love, love huevos rancheros! I have searched high and low for a recipe that was easy to make, but as delicious the first time I had huevos rancheros. It was the sauce that did it for me. It was a smooth and smoky chili-based sauce with a pinch of heat and acidity. So began my endless quest to re-create that OMG moment. I have searched the internet looking at all sorts of ranchero sauce recipes only to come up empty handed. I couldn’t find one that reminded me of the sauce I remembered.   After much trial and error, I am…

    Crispy Kale and Egg Bake

    This kale and egg recipe came about one night when we were getting ready to leave the country for two weeks. It was the day before we were taking off and we had been trying to use up all of the perishables in the fridge before we left. At this point our fridge was looking pretty empty to say the least.  All we had were a couple of eggs, a half a bag of kale from Trader Joe’s and some questionable looking carrots… so obviously those were out and we were left with kale and eggs. We were busy packing and I wasn’t in the mood to cook. So, to…

    Apple Cinnamon Oats

    I very rarely make my oatmeal on the stovetop. To me, oatmeal has always been a quick microwave breakfast before heading out the door to work or school. I feel like people have this stigma that microwave oatmeal isn’t healthy. Most of the time people automatically think of those little brown packets of instant oats that are loaded with sugar. Well, you don’t have to use instant oats to microwave oatmeal. You can use regular old rolled oats and they can be just as creamy and delicious as those made on the stovetop but in half the time and without the all the added sugar of instant packets. These microwave…

    Pumpkin Spice Granola

    Now that I have had time to cope, I am finally over the fact that summer has come to an end and a new season is upon us. As much as I love summer, fall means football season (GO MSU!), apple picking, boots, flannel and pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING. How can I not be excited about that? With that being said, I obviously had to make a pumpkin spice version of my simple granola. Still true to its original form, this pumpkin spice granola is just as easy to make as its counterpart. The addition of pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice and a touch of pure maple syrup has this granola bursting…

    Simple Granola

    I started making my own granola a few years back when we had phase where we were going through A LOT of granola in our house. It was a daily thing for us; we would eat it for breakfast, snacks or even as a dessert when we were craving something sweet after dinner. When I realized how much we were going though (at least a bag of granola per week) I decided to try and come up with my own recipe. I wasn’t totally satisfied with what my options were in the store. Healthier store bought granola is expensive (and by healthier I mean just less sugar, than cheaper granola,…
