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.

Kale Salad with Parmesan, Cranberries, and Pine Nuts

I always have greens on hand. Romaine, spinach, kale, arugula or some combination of these things. Their staples in our refrigerator because they are so versatile. I love pulling together salads for lunch using leftovers from dinner or other miscellaneous kitchen staples. It’s so easy, healthy, and never requires a recipe.

Despite the colder weather, a salad is still totally acceptable in Fall and Winter. I thought I would impart some wisdom … Read more...

We thought a pumpkin recipe was appropriate in honor of Halloween. Not that pumpkin recipes are ever inappropriate though…

When Chris and I were in Europe for our honeymoon I would occasionally check in on Facebook or Instagram and thanks to all my favorite bloggers, I swear all I saw were delicious pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, pumpkin everything!
