I love breakfast and brunch foods. I think it’s because I really like mornings. And a proper hot breakfast that includes eggs is the way I prefer to start my day. Fritattas are a go-to favorite. It’s like a baked omelette or a crustless quiche and very portable so if I make it ahead, I have a delightful breakfast option that I can simply heat and
This is a quickie, but it’s a goodie. I”ve been thinking of ways to expand my breakfast repertoire. I’m on maternity leave now, so I have more time to make a sit down meal. Of course if I woke up even earlier, I would always have time to sit and eat, but let’s be realistic.I need handheld food. I need things I can heat and
I love mornings. Each one is a new beginning. A fresh start. Another chance to live. And since breakfast is the first meal of the day, it too, has a special place in my heart.

However, I do not need to eat McMuffins. Nope, I really
Do you know what it means to wake up and make yourself a breakfast like this? It’s a love letter to yourself. And this open faced omelet whispered: “I love you, Chaundra” Repeatedly. The cheese smiled at me. This lil bit of chicken sausage gave me a wink. That bit of tomato said, “You’re so special” And the carmelized onion kept giggling. Their final words
Ahhh, morning. What a blessed time of day. Especially when I’ve had a full night’s sleep. I can wake up bright and early enough to produce lovely treats like this miniature egg souffle. Wanna know what’s in it? Okay, chicken, spinach, asparagus and some EGG, of course! See, it’s all light and fluffy under there. A melody of textures in my mouth, the crisp crunch
It’s Monday and it’s raining. The good news is that I have quiche for breakfast! A lil something I thought up for my students on Saturday. (I hosted a cooking class on soups and will post those recipes later.)
