Savory Bacon, Cheddar, and Green Onion Pancakes

Breakfast might possibly be my favorite meal of the day. I’m more of a savory (vs. sweet) type of gal though. And I love bacon so this recipe totally hits the spot. The pancakes are savory, with a little bit of sweet, and a lot of spicy (if you choose to douse it in hot sauce like I do). This is a simple and tasty recipe that will change up your weekend routine in a good way. Just make a large batch of pancakes, brew a strong cup(s) of coffee, and enjoy. It’s the weekend so you owe it to yourself to indulge a bit! The idea for this recipe came from St. Francis Fountain’s menu in San Francisco. This local spot offers Upside-Down Hog Cakes which include bacon, cheese, and green onion. Every time my friends and I would go to brunch here, I’d be tempted to order them [Continue Reading…]

Brunch: Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Kale with a Fried Egg

First of all…Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there! My dad actually passed away when I was 5 years old. I think about him often but I am also lucky enough to have a Stepdad in my life so this day is exceptionally meaningful to me. I hope everyone is celebrating and having a wonderful Father’s Day weekend! Second, I am leaving for Peru tonight with my best friend Megan! IAMSOEXCITED! We’ll be spending some time in Peru and then a few days in Quito, Ecuador where we’ll meet up with our good friend Kristina who’s been living there. This blog will be a little quiet for the next two weeks but I’ll be sure to post about my Sudamerica adventures as soon as I can! You can also follow me on Twitter or Instagram. Finally, this dish. Roasted sweet potatoes and kale are some of my [Continue Reading…]

Easy Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict with Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Yep, it’s true. Hollandaise sauce. In a blender. 6 simple ingredients. How easy is that? And 15-20 minutes to make eggs benedict. YEP! This is seriously one of my favorite brunch dishes and something that I use to order almost every time I saw it on the menu. I’d get it because it was a dish I couldn’t make on my own…well, now I can! And you can too. *fist bump* Remember when I told you that I’m still a broke post-college student trying to make it in San Francisco? Yeah, that lifestyle is major inspiration for making these random, quick and easy creations :) Breakfast on the cheap and tasty. Then you can spend the rest of your morning reading a good book or drinking mimosas with friends (if that’s your thing!). Oh, you could also make this green monster smoothie to go with your breakfast/brunch! So grab these [Continue Reading…]

Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes

HI! It’s been a while. I know, I know, I know. This new year has been really busy but full of fun! Meaning I’ve really dropped the ball on getting some blog posts up. The weather has also been surprisingly nice in San Francisco so I’ve been finding myself outside a lot on the weekends, leaving less and less time to cook. Oops! Also, I recently looked at my credit card statement and realized just how much I’ve been spending on eating out. Wowza! Oops again. But hey, sometimes it’s just nice being able to head out with friends and  grab an order of eggs benedict with smoked salmon and a bottomless coffee, right? Sadly, this spending habit wasn’t sustainable (can someone send me endless amounts of money for food please?) so I realized I had to get back in the kitchen. I decided to make a weekend breakfast and am [Continue Reading…]

Bacon, Spinach, and Eggs Breakfast Pizza with a Polenta Crust

One of my favorite meals of all time is brunch. For some reason, brunch just calls to me. Perhaps it’s because you’re free to eat breakfast well into the early afternoon, multiple variations of eggs benedict are abundant on the menu, or the fact that bloody marys and/or mimosas are encouraged during this meal. Oh yeah, let’s not forget that it’s also shared with family and friends and best to go when it’s sunny and warm outside so you can wear awesome sunglasses while you indulge in a huge stack of pancakes and a large side of potatoes and bacon. On occasion, I even deem it necessary to order a large strawberry milkshake with my meal too…which is totally appropriate at brunch. You can’t do that for breakfast. And you can’t eat scrambled eggs for dinner. Now do you see why I am head over heels for brunch?! It’s the [Continue Reading…]
