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…]

Quick Power Breakfast: Overnight Oats

My first mud run was a success! …if you count crossing the finish line as a success haha. But really, it was so much fun! We crawled through mud pits, jumped into the beautiful Sacramento River, and rewarded ourselves with ice cold Sierra Nevada beers afterward (yep, Sierra Nevada was one of the sponsors for the event!). Plus, our outfits were so awesome that the mud just came right off! Here is a pic of us post-run. Shiny, right? Now, I wish I could say that the success of the mud run was due to my diligence in working out and training beforehand. However, this would be a damn lie. I tried! I SWEAR. I did run a lot the week before but I can’t say I did much else. AND I had a terrible cough that still hasn’t gone away. But I am convinced that these overnight oats helped [Continue Reading…]

Panzanella with Tomatoes, Cucumber, and Pickled Red Onion

Panzanella…this summer salad is a keeper! I mean, honestly, what’s not to love about a salad where one of the main ingredients is…bread?! Yes, this is my type of salad. It’s perfect on a hot day or as a quick and delicious meal. I kept it very simple, and I really enjoyed the outcome. Fresh ingredients are key to this dish! And the croutons? I absolutely love homemade croutons. You probably didn’t know that. Or have to know that. But now you do. Homemade croutons really are glorious, and I may sound like a crouton snob when I say this…but once you’ve tried homemade croutons, you’ll never want to buy croutons from the store again! Unless they’re from The Nugget…I approve of The Nugget’s croutons (but only the ones in bags by the salad bar!). I ate those all through college. Speaking of college, I totally felt like a college student [Continue Reading…]

Nutella Crescent Rolls

My last post was a little over a week ago, but for some reason, it feels like it’s been 3 months! I’ve been keeping busy with my new job. Veryyy busy. It’s very fast-paced, exciting, and I’m learning a lot. Fueled by caffeine like never before, this is definitely a new experience that I’m still taking in! So my poor blog has been pushed to the wayside…but I refuse, REFUSE (!!!) to let it remain like this. So, slowly but surely, I’m getting back into the groove. I planned on making two great recipes over the weekend but sadly, I only made one. The second dish was replaced with 2 Grey’s Anatomy episodes and a Mad Men episode (don’t judge my awesome TV show selections!). Without further adieu, I give you…nutella crescent rolls. NUTELLA! If I could marry it, I would. Not only did this take under 30 minutes to make [Continue Reading…]

Veggie Pesto Panini

A couple weeks ago, I was sitting in a little coffee shop and I ordered a veryy delicious veggie panini! It was made with sundried tomatoes, onion, pesto, and swiss cheese…yum! Being on a crazy schedule lately, my eating habits have been increasingly unhealthy and scattered so I decided to take some time out of my day to recreate a version of this veggie panini for lunch. For this panini, I decided to use: whole wheat sourdough bread, pesto, sliced red onions, sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and feta cheese. I didn’t regret the decision at all. It only took about 15 minutes total to prepare and cook, start to finish, plus it was delicious and cheap! Win-win. It’s also healthy–something that’s hard to come by when you’re looking for a quick meal. I bet this would taste even better dipped in some creamy tomato soup too!! :) Veggie Pesto Panini [Continue Reading…]
