Recipe Round Up #4

Good Morning!

Time for another recipe round-up! Here are some new recipes I’ve tried and loved lately.

Last week I made this Smoked Salmon Vegetable Egg Casserole. It was an easy heat and eat breakfast to have on hand during the week and it felt super decadent to eat smoked salmon during on weekdays. I’m also really proud of this Mexican Omelette Egg Muffins recipe- check it out!

A few weeks ago I paired two Skinnytaste recipes together- these Asian Turkey Meatballs and these Zucchini Tots. It was the best dinner- I loved the recipe for the sauce that went with the meatballs and I dipped the tots in a little Wasabi Mayonnaise from Trader Joe’s. It was delicious! {Continue reading…}

Mexican Omelette Egg Muffins

Good Morning!

For the past few weeks, I have been eating a REAL breakfast at home before getting ready for the day. Most of the time Rich joins me and it’s such a nice start to the day. Yes, I’m waking up about 30 minutes earlier, but the fifteen minutes to chat with Rich while I enjoy a real breakfast and some time to sip my coffee and read my favorite blogs is such a great way to start the day.

To make this possible, I’ve been prepping my breakfast for the week on Sunday for easy heat-and-eat meals during the week. These egg muffins were an experiment this past Sunday, but they turned out fabulously!

Good Morning! 1. One life lesson that I was reminded of this week was the importance of asking questions. At work, I’ve found a few go-to people this week and it has helped me feel much more comfortable with my role! Also it helped me find this necklace last night! I was looking at it […]
