Avocado Toast with Eggs, Kale and Tomatoes

I could probably eat avocado toast every day and not get sick of it.  That’s saying a lot because I get bored of eating the same thing over and over. I think the trick is that I make different kinds of avocado toasts.  I even shared some of those recipes with you.  They’re pretty much all the same, avocado, toast, and the other stuff.  It’s really not rocket science.  Sometimes eggs, other times not.  It just depends on what you have and what you want to eat.  I’m excited about today’s version of avocado toast because it includes a little …

Berry Crisp

Which is better, a berry pie or a berry crisp? My parents came over for dinner on Saturday and I wanted to make a lovely summer dessert.  I could have made blueberry or triple berry pie , because pies are yummy, but I wanted something easier and quicker.  That’s where this berry crisp came in. This crisp is all that you would expect in great crisp.  It has a crispy, sugary, buttery coating on top of a boat load of yummy fruit.  I used an assortment of berries today because they’re in season (i.e. cheap and delicious).  You can use …

Greek Avocado Salad

Guys, I’ve been totally slacking on posts lately (if you hadn’t noticed). I’ve mentioned a few times recently that I’ve been focused on my workouts.  I think I have a good routine going with those at this point.  Now I figure it’s time that I buckle down and focus on eating healthier on a more regular basis (i.e. not just on Mondays).  So many of my blog posts are about food, and in my attempts to be healthy mean that the recipes are a bit boring.  Some aren’t even “real” recipes at all, but rather a bit of a write up …

Chocolate Chip Cookies

What better way to celebrate Christmas in July but with cookies. The Hallmark channel is in full swing with showing their Christmas movies this week and you better believe that I’m watching as many of them as I can.  It’s not like I’ve seen them all at least 7 times each or anything.  😉  It’s definitely getting me in the mood for the holidays.  In fact, I almost bought marshmallows and hot cocoa.  I ended up not buying them because I figured one cup would satisfy the nostalgic craving and then I’d mindlessly consume the rest of the bag of …

Homemade Blueberry Pie

Every dessert table at a BBQ deserves a pie (or 2 or 3). I thought I’d make a blueberry pie for our family BBQ over the weekend because it is appropriately colored to match the red, white and blue theme for the Independence Day holiday.  I don’t always go out of my way to be matchy-matchy with a holiday, but I knew that I wanted to make something easy and I knew that I wanted it be pie so the decision sort of presented itself.  Plus, blueberries are in season so that was the icing on the cake, er, pie. …
