Avocado toasts with scrambled eggs

Avocado toasts with scrambled eggs

I know avocado toasts are all the rage right now. They’re even on the verge of getting too popular, like kale was a year or so ago. Food, like everything else has its trends and when something gets too much publicity it suddenly becomes uncool. But I don’t care. I’m late to the avocado toast game and I’m sure I’ll get a few eye rolls for this one but avocado toasts are amazing and I <3 them. So, food snobs who are over avocado toasts, look away! Read no further!

These avocado toasts are pretty basic. I made them on Saturday morning when I wanted to eat something healthy but not too healthy and I didn’t want to make anything complicated. So, these are my semi-healthy, uncomplicated avocado toasts. (more…)

Easy, cheesy scrambled eggs with pancetta and scallions

cheesy scrambled eggs with pancetta and scallions

Matt and I took a few days off last week. We “went down the shore” (as they say in Jersey) and spent a few days with family and then spent some time at home relaxing. I did some reading (finished Mindy Kaling’s book and started One for the Money, by Janet Evanovich), A LOT of laundry, and a fair amount of cooking. I love days that have no set agenda and you’re free to be as lazy or as productive as you’d like. Every now and then, days like that are 100% necessary, at least for me. On one such day I made these easy, cheesy scrambled eggs with pancetta and scallions. I slept in (read: woke up at 8am and lounged around watching Food Network and Bravo until 10am) and leisurely made my way to the kitchen. I was about to pour myself a bowl of cheerios when I decided that I wasn’t in the mood for an ordinary breakfast. This was a special day! A lazy day! And, occasionally, lazy days should be celebrated. So, I made scrambled eggs. But not just any scrambled eggs. Delicious, creamy scrambled eggs with salty pancetta and crunchy scallions. (more…)

Bacon, egg and potato casserole

bacon, egg and potato brunch casserole

I’m not much of a breakfast person normally. I love breakfast when I am on vacation, but on a day to day basis it’s the one meal I don’t set aside time for. Breakfast is a grab and go kind of meal for me. Lately my breakfasts consist of 2 clementines and a baby bel cheese ball. But on Saturday, my friend was dog sitting for a family in Princeton and mentioned that the house had a huge fenced in backyard. She had the brilliant idea of hosting a doggie play date/ brunch. We brainstormed and decided we would have mimosas, bagels with cream cheese and lox, french toast with fresh fruit, and a dish involving bacon and eggs. We split up what we would each bring and I volunteered to bring the dish with the bacon and eggs. This casserole is what I came up with and I was really pleased with how it turned out. We had the perfect weather, an amazing spread of food, and the dogs had a great time too. It was exactly what I needed after a long work week. There’s something about brunch that just makes everyone feel relaxed. (more…)
