Baked Eggs with Wilted Greens & Green Garlic {Breakfast Dip}

by Lauren

baked eggs 4

Chrissy proclaimed this a breakfast dip and I’d have to agree with her, it is basically a dip. While I intended it to be eaten with a fork, we definitely did some damage on a baguette while enjoying it straight out of the baking dish.

The bread’s perfectly toasty crust and soft, warm center paired with garlicky greens and runny egg was flawless. Originally I had said this serves four but on second thought, it’s just for two.

Before I realized how easy it was to prep healthy salads for the week, Lauren and I would occasionally buy a salad or two from Trader Joe’s as a treat or when we had a busy week and knew we needed to take a healthy shortcut.

I’m never really all that impressed with store-bought pre-made salads (unless they are from Whole Foods, which is unfortunate for the wallet), but there was one that I just loved. After eating this salad … Read more...

So, last week was crazy busy. We missed you guys. Apologies for the lack of posts but between a few late nights at work, wedding planning, graduation parties, and other various commitments, things have been hectic.

Despite pure exhaustion from driving 381 miles this weekend (ok, so maybe Chris drove, but Chrissy and I were wonderful co-pilots) we are back in action in the LYK this week and bringing you the best spread since butter.

Key lime. Key lime. Key lime. PIE.

It’s the best pie out there. Hands down.

It’s perfectly creamy, zesty, tart, and sweet, all built upon a delicious graham cracker crust.

When I was young, my family took a vacation, road tripping all along the Southern coast, from Mississippi to the other side of Florida. Before heading up to Orlando, to end our vacation with a Disneyworld experience, we cruised down to the Florida Keys.

Lemon Arugula Salad over Egg and Avocado Toast_LYK2

If I ever opened a restaurant, it would only serve breakfast. Mayyybe lunch, if the world demands it.

But honestly, it’s just my favorite meal of the day. I love that it’s something you can get really creative with. There are so many sweet and savory options. Also, you can eat it for any meal without it being weird. You just can’t have dinner for breakfast…pasta in the morning? Gross. You’ll regret that one later.
