Healthy Easter Brunch Recipes

This blog is nothing if not seasonal, so let’s celebrate the holiday¬†where rabbits lay the most delicious eggs – Easter! In all seriousness, this holiday means two things to me – brunch with family & friends and the start of berry season (yay!). So I’ve picked out a few recipes you could serve at an Easter brunch, and a few¬†that are less Easter-y and just scream spring me to me (I’m looking at you, Sunshine Chia Bowls). You can click directly on the photos to go to each recipe: Avocado Almondaise Tartines¬†(pictured above) Shakshuka with Spinach and Harissa Tart Cherry…


Christmas Morning Recipes

Favorite healthy holiday breakfast and brunch recipes - including Vegan French Toast, Blueberry Baked Oatmeal and more!

And the countdown begins! As a kid, Christmas morning was always the absolute BEST part¬†of the year. For the special morning my family celebrated with one¬†of¬†2 breakfast rituals – a can of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls or a box of Entenmann’s chocolate doughnuts. We loved it all – although my sister and I could honestly care less about the food because the morning was all about waking up and waiting sooooo patiently for my parents to get their coffee before we could start opening presents. The recipe suggestions here are a little more homemade, but hey no judgement if you have…

If you’re starting to plan your holiday meal, here are a some of my favorite fresh & bright brunch recipe ideas to get you started! pictured…


Apple Mimosas & Butternut Baked Eggs

Host a fun & easy-going brunch with these simple baked eggs. Butternut squash, eggs, leeks, and herbs are all you need. With apple mimosas, of course.

Thanksgiving has become an odd holiday for us. During the first years that¬†Jack and I were together, we traveled to visit family¬†for every single¬†holiday. It took us a while to¬†realize that Thanksgiving weekend air travel is the worst of them all. So now we have a tradition of staying home with no real tradition. One year we stayed in and made¬†risotto. The year after that we had a friends-giving (before they were called that). Last year, we stayed home and worked (we were just beginning the book). This year we’re going to gather with friends over a fun & easygoing…
