Breakfast Sausage Stir-Fry with Spinach, Mushrooms, and Burst Grape Tomatoes

Breakfast Sausage Stir-Fry with Spinach, Mushrooms, and Burst Grape Tomatoes

My summer field work has started and I have been so busy. I have been doing a lot of once a week cooking, but it’s just the basics so I haven’t had anything interesting to post lately. I did come up with this savory breakfast […]

Asparagus and Ham Crustless Quiche

Asparagus and Ham Crustless Quiche

Asparagus is starting to come into season, and I was able to get several bunches for fairly cheap recently. I am still doing my once-a-week cooking, so I cut the stems into pieces and steamed the bunches in sequence as part of my Sunday cookup. […]

Ham-Wrapped Eggs Columbian

Ham-Wrapped Eggs Columbian

Today is my last day of spring break. I did take some time off this week to go to Austin and various Texas locales. Getting away was what I needed. The only problem was my flight coming back home was very much delayed and I […]

Grain-Free Blueberry Muffins

Grain-Free Blueberry Muffins

 It’s taken a lot of trial and error to learn how to bake using non-grain flours, however with my latest trial of blueberry muffins I can see how far I’ve come in my baking. When I first tried to use coconut flour for muffins, they […]

Apple Cinnamon Coconut Flour Muffins

Apple Cinnamon Coconut Flour Muffins

I’ve been spending a lot of time cooking other people’s recipes that I haven’t been making any of my own! I am fortunate enough to have a lot of fabulous cookbooks, and I have been enjoying trying new things. For instance, I made Grandma’s Easy […]

Grain-Free Banana Nut Pancakes

Grain-Free Banana Nut Pancakes

I normally eat a omelet or some other derivation of eggs for breakfast, but frankly that can get kind of boring at times. For a change of pace, I decided to make my first batch of almond flour-based pancakes in order to use up some […]
