As Kelsie mentioned, these past few weeks have been a little crazy to say the least. Well when you’re having “one of those weeks”, this is the recipe to keep on hand. You can prepare the quiche ahead of time and pop it in the microwave for a quick and filling meal. It’s obviously ideal for breakfast, but with two different meats, eggs, and a bit of veggies, its also a satisfying lunch or dinner (break all the breakfast rules).
Let me start this post off by apologizing. I’m sorry we’ve been MIA for the past couple of weeks. Two graduations in two states in 10 days is exhausting (but Lexi & I both successfully graduated without tripping wahoo!)
But, I’m mainly sorry I’ve kept this recipe from y’all for so long. It’s life-changing. Forget medicine and happy hours (never mind, don’t forget those), I have the cure for ev-ery-thing, especially Monday blues.
I’m lucky enough to have traveled to Madrid, Spain four times now, and there’s a reason it keeps me comin’ back. If Barcelona is the LA of Spain, consider Madrid the New York City. Maybe that explains why no two trips have been the same. The city is always alive, and with limitless things to do, places to see, and interesting people to watch, dull moments in Madrid just don’t exist.
I’m admitting right here, right now, that I am addicted to cheese. Lexi is, too. And so are my parents. I think it’s hereditary or something. If we could eat cheese and charcuterie boards every night for dinner, I think we might. It’s actually something we do quite often, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
One thing I’ve always wanted to buy is a cool cheeseboard, but some of them are so expensive, and I just can’t bring myself to buy one. The ones that are chalkboards are my favorite, because you can easily write what kind of cheese/meat/spreads there are, and relabel it as you try new kinds of cheeses. [Read more…]
Who doesn’t love a good ombre? Jared Leto’s perfect hair, anyone? Or, maybe I’m the only one who wishes my hair looked like his. Regardless, ombre-anything adds a little extra sass, even to cakes.
That’s right, we’re making sassy cakes.
Deviled eggs are an obvious Easter staple. There are countless flavor combos and varieties out there, and while I appreciate culinary adventures, I figure why mess with a classic?
I would hunt for eggs every day if this was the prize.
I’m going Paula Deen on y’all, sorry in advance. Don’t question the butter – accept it, especially in this case. And we’re going to brown the butter, which makes it okay for an adult to eat, like, five of these, right? Because they’re sophisticated? Let’s go with that.
Apparently it’s National Grilled Cheese Month, and today is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day. While some people may question the validity of this “holiday”, I say it’s my new favorite one to celebrate. Why are people not making a bigger deal about this? I’m talkin’ “Happy Grilled Cheese Day” cards, holiday parties, someone write a song about it, make a tradition where everyone only eats grilled cheeses all day. I think I’m really on to something. If anyone would like to join me in my efforts to make National Grilled Cheese Day 2015 one of the biggest holidays of the year, it would be greatly appreciated. Until then, I’ll just share with you one of my new favorite comfort food recipes in hopes that you’ll spread the Grilled Cheese Day joy.
When you’re in Seville, you see “NO8DO” literally everywhere. On cars, on poles in the streets, in the pavement. It’s Seville’s motto given to the city by King Fernando III in the 13th century, and it’s so incredibly fitting. It means “No me ha dejado,” or “Seville, you have not left/abandoned me.” And since I left Seville after studying in 2011, I’ve thought about the city almost daily. No exaggeration.

You know those mornings when you want that sweet donut but also the salty bacon, maybe a croissant, and then some fruit because you’re obviously trying to be healthy? Or is that only me? I just want ALL the flavors ALL the time. Is that too much to ask?! No, it’s not. So I threw some savory/sweet goodness into a muffin and called it breakfast. Add a cup o’ coffee and a couple dollops of butter, and you’ve got a good morning.
