5 Unexpected Foods That Keep You Regular

5 Unexpected Foods That Keep You Regular

We love food. Food makes us happy and keeps us going. But sometimes food keeps us from going if you catch my drift. There’s plenty of reasons behind distressin’ intestines. It could be your medication, an inactive lifestyle or it could be the food you’re eating. There […]

What is it about green vegetables that make people want to run away and hide? I was a weird child, I liked all vegetables. EXCEPT PEAS. I draw the line at green peas. Blech. Anyways, I just don’t get it. It seems like children in […]

When Life Gives you Lemons…Make Bread

It’s Taco Time!

It’s Taco Time!

Ummm guys, is it bad if I’m trying to celebrate “Taco Tuesday” on a Friday? You know what, don’t care. This is happening. When are tacos ever a bad idea? Answer: NEVER.   These aren’t as magical as the tacos from back home but I don’t […]

Gelato… Ciao bello

Happy Summer Solstice everyone! It’s officially the first day of my favorite season! Unfortunately for me, warm weather is just one more excuse for me to eat ice cream. I’ve been trying soooo hard not to eat ice cream like every single day.  Still trying to […]

I Like ’em Crunchy!

I Like ’em Crunchy!

Show of hands, who loves French Toast? French Toast is probably my favorite breakfast food. And biscuits. Ok, anything that’s bread and carbolicious. Yup we’ve just added another word to the Foodie Dictionary. Now French Toast is pretty simple right? You’ve got your eggs, bread, some cinnamon and sugar. Maybe some fruit. The usual stuff. Now, how does Cornflake Crusted French Toast sound? Yes guys. CORNFLAKE CRUSTED. I don’t know who came up with this magical creation but whoever you are, can we be best friends?

On one of my many trips to DC (my favorite city besides San Diego of course) I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Washington D.C./Georgetown. Gorgeous hotel. Totally recommend it. While staying there I decided to try out their restaurant Cafe Deluxe. I’m not gonna lie, I kinda threw down. I had Applewood smoked bacon, the Iron Skillet Cinnamon Bun, Buttermilk biscuits with the most FANTASMIC strawberry jelly, and the French Toast. Yaaah let’s just say I waddled back to my hotel room for a nap.

 

Is this not the most beautiful thing that you’ve ever seen? French Toast is forever ruined for me. I want all my French Toast to be cornflake crusted from now on. It might sound strange but it was actually really delicious! It was delightfully crunchy on the outside and warm and lovely on the inside. You’d think the texture would be weird but it’s not! And there’s powdered sugar on top. How awesome is that? Oh but there’s fresh fruit on top too so you don’t have to feel guilty! It just works.

Does anyone have the courage to try making this at home? I’ll try it if you guys will!

Until next time food lovers!

Don’t Touch My Ramen!

Don’t Touch My Ramen!

Guys can we talk about ramen for a second? I’m not talking about Cup of Noodles or any of the other salt laden junk that we college students live on. Okaaay I love the salty junk! We all do! Ramen makes up like 40% of a […]

Did Someone Say Brunch?

Did Someone Say Brunch?

Brunch is probably one of the greatest concepts known to man. I feel like it was made for people like me: people that don’t always feel like being real adults and occasionally start their day after 10 am…okaaay sometimes noon. And because Brunching (yeah I just created a new verb) is becoming so trendy,  it’s ok, nay fashionable to have breakfast food later in the day. I don’t know about you but sometimes when I sleep in and I mean REALLY sleep in, I still want breakfast-y food for some reason. Solution: Brunch. Definition: all the magic of breakfast but in the afternoon. What’s not to like?

Sooo, I decided to make some omelettes today for myself and my boyfriend. Sadly, I experienced some ahem…spatula malfunctions with the first omelette. Yes, I just totally failed at flipping a circular piece of egg.  When I flipped it over it was just a pathetic, partially crumpled egg-y monstrosity. I would show you guys but I’m so ashamed. So very ashamed. I managed to fail less on the second omelette.

Yaaaay!

Here is what I used for my very simple omelette recipe. *Warning: must have superior flipping skills* 

 

Sunday Omelette

3 eggs

Spinach leaves

Tomato (diced)

Bell pepper (Idk what kind of cutting I was doing. It was some weird diced/julienne hybrid)

Black Forest ham

Pinch of salt

Pepper

Shredded Colby-Jack cheese (or whatever cheese you like!)

Whisk your eggs in a bowl and add in your salt and your desired amount of pepper. Heat your pan to about medium high and pour your egg mixture into the middle of the pan (pouring a mixture into the middle of a pan allows you to create a perfectly circular shape in an even layer). Start sprinkling in your ingredients right after that. When you see the edges starting to firm up, it’s flipping time! Once your egg is cooked all the way through you can add in some shredded cheese if you like and fold that thang up!

Guys please, don’t be like me. I know you guys will do a much better job at flipping than I did. May the spatula be with you. Sorry, I just.. I couldn’t resist.

Now, I’d like to mention two things. 1) how much of each ingredient you use is totally up to you! 2) I used a smaller pan so my omelettes came out thicker.

Until Next time food lovers! Happy Sunday!
