Savory oatmeal!

The key to not getting bored with your food is simple. Have fun. This week I’ve been getting creative in the kitchen with my breakfasts. One morning it was an egg sandwich, another it was a smoothie bowl, and today I wanted savory oatmeal. I can’t say that I’ve ever had savory oatmeal before soContinue reading “Savory oatmeal!”

I decided to play up the fresca feelings by taking a trip to the Mediterranean for meal prep this week.

This recipe could be prepared in a larger loaf pan, a bundt cake, or even cupcakes! I decided to use this adorable individual serving bars. I accidentally left offContinue reading “Lemon Cornmeal Cake Bars”

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

I wanted to keep going with the heritage food this week (hence the red cabbage and potato salad) What dessert would tie all of this flavor together better than some cinnamon sugar pretzels!? I’ve made this recipe before to make bagels and you really can’t go wrong. The base is basic dough so you couldContinue reading “Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels”
