A Delicious New Blog!

I’ve been pretty inactive here lately, but I will pick things up again in the fall! As for now, you MUST MUST MUST check out this blog: http://www.chefnicco.blogspot.com/

It is by far the most delicious blog you will ever read. This guy is probably the most talented 20 year old chef you’ll ever find. His recipes are outstanding and wait until you see his pictures. I was starving just after reading the intro.

He is trying to get his name out there and I was so impressed with his blog and his food (yes, I got to try it) that I’m passing on his blog to all of you. Definitely check it out and share the link. He’s worth it. His food is worth it. His blog is worth it.

Not to mention he has a heart of gold and the strongest passion for cooking out of anyone I’ve ever met. He’s overwhelming generous with his food because he simply believes people deserve to eat only the tastiest of dishes. He’s going to be huge so I highly recommend taking a look at his work before he gets so famous you won’t be able to get near his recipes 😉

A Sweet, Quick, Complete Breakfast

We’ve all heard again and again that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gets your metabolism going, gives you energy to start the day, helps keep you awake, etc. We all know the facts, but none of that changes that when it comes to the mornings all you want to do is keep sleeping. Very few of us wake up early enough to pull together a complete breakfast.

Well, I found 25 great breakfast ideas that are quick and easy. Here are my top 5 favorites:

  1. 60 Second Chocolate Chip Muffin in the Microwave (CLICK HERE)
  2. Make Crispy Hashbrowns in a waffle maker! Literally just put the shredded potatoes in the waffle maker.
  3. Apple Rings Dipped in Pancake Batter (CLICK HERE)
  4. 2 Minute Scrambled Eggs in the Microwave (CLICK HERE)
  5. Make French Toast in a crock pot (CLICK HERE)

The rest of the list is available HERE

Not all the recipes are exactly healthy, but a slightly not-so-healthy breakfast is still better than no breakfast. Some of the suggestions are so clever (like keeping prepared pancake batter in a ketchup bottle). Also keeping frozen fruits already portioned and bagged in your freezer can help you make a 30 second smoothie in the morning. Everyone loves smoothies! Believe me, I make them at work…I make A LOT of them at work.

So be healthy and eat your breakfast!

I don’t know about everyone else, but on the rare occasion that I cook I tend to end up eating too much. The same goes for when I bake…I make 2 dozen cookies and then end up eating them all. Well, I’ve been telling myself my summer diet would start March 1st and well I’m having a tough time so far. I’m eating healthy foods, but I’m eating too much of them.

I discovered a whole list of microwave in a mug snacks. Creating just a mug full of food is a great way to make sure you don’t eat too much! Instead of trying to size down massive recipes and then ultimately messing up the measurements, try these recipes! I’m definitely doing the quiche first.
