Not Oatmeal Breakfast Salad

For the ladies and gents who asked. Salad is good any time of day. I like it in the am instead of hot cereal. In this case bulgur subs for oatmeal, but so could barley or wheat berry. Any whole grain. The veg can be poached from leftovers. Do yourself a favor and dress withContinue reading “Not Oatmeal Breakfast Salad”

Birthday Biscuits

It wasn't breakfast in bed as promised, but I did deliver the biscuits with bacon and eggs to the birthday child. This recipe is virtually idiot proof. Opt for lightly rolling out the biscuits and not too thin! You may get fewer but they'll rise higher. I used a pastry cutter to blend the butter.Continue reading “Birthday Biscuits”

The difference between his andContinue reading “Snausage and Egg Frittata”

Breakfast salad for Meat-free Monday

It tastes the same.I made this as a single serving but double or quadruple. It keeps well for a couple of days and travels nicely too! IngredientsContinue reading “Breakfast salad for Meat-free Monday”

Rhubarb Goodness

Thank goodness I didn't throw out the last of the season's wilted rhubarb. Feel free to cook it at it's peak, but cut off the ends of week-old rhubarb and you've still got the delicious makings of a loose jam, ice cream sauce, fresh fruit drizzle or BBQ ingredient. Please excuse the odd measurements. IContinue reading “Rhubarb Goodness”

Not Breakfast Salad

Breakfast rice, nuts & fruits. I've adapted this from The French Women Don't Get Fat Cookbook. The original calls for protein rich quinoa, but I opt for brown rice. Both options are gluten free and the nuts add protein regardless. Eat before a beach holiday or after splitting a bottle of wine (plus some reallyContinue reading “Not Breakfast Salad”

Birthday Muffins

New birthday bowl, say hi to blackberry muffins! I think it's a complimentary relationship 🙂 I also think the easiest way to intro anyone to baking is with muffins. There are a few helpful hints (don't over mix, or the muffins will get tough), but even mistakes are delicious. I happened on a recipe forContinue reading “Birthday Muffins”
