Muffin-Tin Omelets with Kale, Sundried Tomatoes, and Goat Cheese

When I started Whole30, it was a desperation move to see if I could find something that might speed up healing my plantar fasciitis so I could start running again. It sounded like an okay-ish idea. Actually, that’s totally a pants-on-fire lying lie. I knew it was a terrible idea. That I would be miserable [...]

The Return of Whole30

Whole30 Breakfast: Spicy Sweet Potatoes, Green Beans, and Eggs

Hey – remember that time I did Whole30 last year and it was so awesome that I had a very big and very public ugly-cry meltdown (The Meltdown, as we refer to it… when we dare refer to it) in the middle of Whole Foods over the price of strawberries and embarrassed the &^$# out [...]

Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins

Let’s cut right to it and talk about my favorite part about these muffins. (Believe it or not, it’s not the chocolate.) It was the way my hands smelled all day after mixing the orange zest and sugar together. It was the way the baking muffins made my house smell bright and citrusy. It was [...]

Goat Cheese & Black Pepper Biscuits

We all deal with stress, disappointment, and defeat in different ways. At least I assume we do. Unless you tell me that you, too, head straight for your kitchen to fry up all the bacon and chop all the onions in the house. While knocking back a couple goat cheese biscuits. To each her own, [...]

Eggs Trivette (Crawfish Eggs Benedict)

What else would you have for breakfast after a crawfish boil but Eggs Benedict with a cajun twist? Honestly, after as much stuff as we indulged in, we probably should have just had a bowl of lawn clippings for breakfast. And lunch. But I thought that leftover crawfish, bacon, and a spicy hollandaise sauce sounded [...]

Congratulations – you’ve got all the fixins necessary for a breakfast taco worthy of celebrating Texas Independence Day today!
