Pancakes! I have to admit, normally I’m a waffles kind of girl through and through. I can’t get enough of the nooks and crannies for all the syrup and butter to go into and now that I’ve mastered my ultimate vegan waffle recipe, they are a guaranteed winner, every time. Pancakes on the other hand..have always been a challenge. I either cook them for way too long, resulting in a lot of burnt pancakes and a few edible ones, (more…)

Let’s just imagine for a second that you can have waffles, that taste like a root beer float! Uh, I KNOW! Welcome to my brain that can mash up waffles and just about any other dessert to make them into a darn good treat that can toe that line between breakfast/brunch/dessert and still be vegan AND gluten-free. Can you say YASSSS?!

Can you tell that I looooove waffles? They are kind of my all-time favorite breakfast food and when given the choice between pancakes and waffles, I’m going to choose waffles 99% of the time. So many nooks and crannies for syrup and (in this case) (more…)

Yep, you read that right. Vegan CHERRY cinnamon rolls. As if vegan cinnamon rolls weren’t enough, I went and added my favorite summer fruit to the filling and rolled it all up into a sweet breakfast treat. YES, PLEASE!

So how do you make vegan cinnamon rolls? Really, there’s isn’t much to change (outside of using almond milk) and guess what? Yeast dough isn’t scary! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, baking with yeast doesn’t have to be hard. I think one of the biggest fears around using yeast in bread is that something will go wrong. It won’t rise, it will rise for too long, what if I kill the yeast, or what if the water is too hot?! (more…)

Hello hello! It feels like it’s been quite a while since I’ve gotten a fresh new post on the blog! I’ve been in this weird in-between mode of having a new job (I’m working for the BEST people), adjusting to working from home full-time, and finding a new routine. It sounds like it’s WAY easier to work from home all the time, right? Don’t get me wrong, it’s so nice and I love it. But, I’ve had to get into a routine (more…)

This is me, the self-proclaimed avocado hater (yep, I do. not. like them.) telling you that I’ve finally found something with avocado that I actually like. It’s true! Honestly, I’ve always been an avocado hater, they are too squishy and green for my taste and if they are on a warm sandwich? Forget it! Nope, not interested. But, once I figured out that you could smash a small amount of avocado on toast and mix all kinds of fun toppings with it (like crispy split peas), I started to change my tune.

For my once in a blue moon avocado toast (I’m still warming up to it!), I usually go avocado, salt, red pepper flakes, and hot sauce. Simple, doesn’t take too much like avocado and usually keeps me full for a few hours until it’s time for second breakfast. But, I needed to come up with something with a little more staying power and fiber, to keep me full when I’m trying to power through a full day of work or out and about on a weekend. The perfect mix in and topping to solve this ended up being.split peas! I really don’t use split peas enough at all, forgetting about them most of the time until I need a batch for a soup recipe, but they ended up being a perfect topping for my new favorite avocado toast. The trick with this recipe is to prep the night before, with soaking the beans and then making them crispy right before stirring into the avocado mixture for your toast.

I love that this is one more way to reach the Half-Cup Habit goal of adding ½ cup serving of pulses to your diet just three times a week! Split peas are part of the pulse family (in addition to beans, chickpeas and lentils) and are full of fiber and nutrients that keep me full until it’s time for second breakfast/early lunch. Coming from an avocado hater, that’s a pretty tall order to get me to love avocado toast.

We are officially entering into stay-inside-for-brunch season, am I right? I love a good brunch out on the weekends as much as anyone else, but considering the temperature sometimes doesn’t get above 20 these days (brrr!) and leaving the comfort of my cozy house sounds downright terrible, sometimes we opt for brunch in instead.
