Sage & Butternut Squash Breakfast Bake

Vanilla Berry Chia Pudding

During school weekdays it’s an extremely rare occasion for me to actually have time for a sit down breakfast, especially when classes start at 8 AM!

Ranchero Breakfast Tostadas

After indulging in a little too much pie and ice cream over Fourth of July weekend, I feel like I need a little bit of a diet reset. A reset in the form of breakfast tostadas. Yes, this sounds like a very good idea indeed. Crispy baked tortillas get topped with melty cheese, black beans…

Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Banana Overnight Oats

I’m a firm believer that good food doesn’t need to be fancy in order to be overwhelmingly delicious. I mean, yeah serve me up some eggs benny with the fixings and I’m a happy girl, but I’m also just as satisfied with a big ol’ bowl of oatmeal for breakfast! This recipe for overnight oats…

Italian Baked Eggs
