A Sunday Brunch Trip.

My Aunt Gloria, my mother, and I went to a little brunch place called “The Breakfast Club” in Lebanon, OH this past Sunday. If you’re ever in the area, I suggest you check it out. It was incredible.

There aren’t other words.

Eating Loads of Fruit Everyday.

This is like the antithesis of a legitimate update, but it’s Daylight Savings Time and as such, I need to get to sleep sooner, so just deal with it:

I’ve been eating so healthy lately! I had almost forgotten how much I love fruit.

Why You Wish I Was Your Co-Worker.

This is not a food blog. However, if I’m actually trying to be domestic at all, I have to document it. It’s in my charter. 

For Valentine’s Day, I made my office chocolate covered strawberries!

What You’ll Need:

-a “Double Boiler”—or a pot that fits inside another pot. Pot-ception.

-Strawberries

- White Chocolate Chips (I used Tollhouse)

- Sweetened Dark Chocolate Chips (Tollhouse drops are perfect)

-Icing spread doohicky

-Wax paper to lay the strawberries on afterward

Prep:

Wash the strawberries and let them air dry a bit. As long as they aren’t soaking it’s fine.

Put two cups of water in the larger pot and heat it up just below a boil. 

Put the chocolate chips of your choosing in the top pot and put that pot in the almost boiling water pot.

Stir slowly until it becomes smooth and beautiful and not at all chunky:

Pro Tip: You only have about a minute and a half to dip the strawberries after the chocolate reaches this consistency. Taking photos is not practical because the chocolate will thicken, and your once beautiful white chocolate strawberries will look like MONSTERS:

Place your dipped strawberries on wax paper and let them harden. Once they do, remove them and put them in a dish in the refrigerator. And that’s it!

I did the dark chocolate strawberries too:

So far this is a hit! Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

Sunday Cooking-ness.

I’m actually okay at cooking, and I want to be better about updating this blog! So in an effort to let you all in, while simultaneously feeding myself protein based things, here’s what I made this morning:

Ham and Egg Cups! (better name in the works)

So if you peruse Pinterest (which, don’t even get me started), you’ll see loads of delicious recipes that you can’t wait to try. I personally like the ones that are simple yet upgraded versions of things I already like. 

Point blank: I like breakfast foods, and this was a “less mess” solution to ham and eggs (and cheese if I’m honest). 

The Recipe:

Recipe is sort of a subjective term when all of the ingredients are pretty much done being made. But regardless:

You’ll need:

A muffin pan

Eggs

Ham (or turkey or whatever lunch meat you like)

Cheese

Salt and Pepper

Essentially you’ll line individual muffin cubby hole things (technical term) with the ham, then crack an egg and put it in each, and then cover them in some cheese. You set the oven to broil, but (LESSON 1) do the convect broil setting. That way it heats top and bottom!

The result is something yummy that looks like this (I burned the top because I didn’t convect first):

So tasty! You should try it!
