Orange Chia Pudding Parfait

I’ve been fascinated by chia seeds (salvia hispanica) for a while now. They’re rich in omega-3 fatty acids and, while they’re a tad pricey a little bit goes a long way. Until now, though, I’ve mostly been simply sprinkling them on top of my morning yogurt, or incorporating them into the occasional smoothie. This month’s Secret Recipe Club gave me the opportunity to...

Guest Post: Honey-Pistachio Granola and a Honey Blog Hop

Happy Friday! Today I am guest posting over at 84th & 3rd while the lovely JJ travels the world. I know that she likes to eat healthy, so I’ve made some easy and flavorful honey-pistachio granola that’s sure to brighten your morning. JJ is one of those bright and warm people that I’ve “met” through blogging, and who I hope to catch up with in person some day (our...

Mango-Orange Smoothie and a Mango Blog Hop

As much as I love breakfast, I’m a terrible breakfast eater. I know that all the research says that people who eat breakfast are smarter and skinnier. But most days I just can’t bring myself to do it. I’m not hungry right when I wake up and since I work from home I typically linger for hours over my coffee while I start my day. And then it’s time to eat lunch! But...

By day Terra is a food safety auditor who travels around the country checking up on kitchens from high end restaurants to jails.

Tomato, Mozzarella, Basil, and Spinach Frittata and an Egg Blog Hop

Tomato, mozzarella, and basil comprises one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations. It always makes for a reliable panini, is perfect served on its own as an appetizer, and is fun to play around with (as in here, here, and here). Combine this with the fact that I’ve been obsessed with my new cast iron pan (as evidenced here and here) and it was only a matter of time before this...

Shakshuka and the Israel To Go Book

If living in Israel has done anything, it has been to instill in me a lifelong love of shakshuka (also spelled shakshouka). This North African egg dish is an integral part of the fabric that is Israeli cuisine, and it’s commonly eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, served in a sizzling cast iron pan, on a sandwich, or in a pita. Essentially eggs poached in tomato sauce, this is one of...

Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict and a Mother’s Day Blog Hop

Mother’s Day is a little over a week away, but I wanted to have a Mother’s Day blog hop today in order to give plenty of time for menu planning and inspiration. Back home Mother’s Day is usually one of my favorite days of the year. Usually my mom, sister, and I use it as an excuse for a girls’ day out. We go to the zoo or botanic gardens, get mani-pedis or enjoy a...

Guest Post: Carrot Cake Oatmeal

I am so excited for today’s post! While I just got back from Istanbul (what an incredible city – more on that later), my sister is now visiting us in Israel for the week. I couldn’t be more excited to show her around the country that I call home. To give me more time with her Kiran from the amazing blog Kiran Tarun graciously agreed to do a guest post for me. If you don’t...

I don’t post that many breakfast recipes. Many of the ones I have do double duty  as dessert and/or breakfast, like my applesauce cake or banana-walnut bread. Most days, I keep my breakfast simple. A cup of coffee. Oatmeal with brown sugar and dried cherries. Yogurt with date honey and homemade pumpkin granola. I’m not usually hungry right when I wake up, and often don’t eat...

I love any excuse for brunch. It makes me think of sunny days, meeting up with friends, and unlimited mimosas. On these special occasions I often splurge for Eggs Benedict or Florentine – who can resist a fluffy English muffin topped with Canadian bacon or spinach, a poached egg, and plenty of creamy Hollandaise sauce? But with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, there’s something...
