Bacon Cheddar Waffles & Eggs with Smoked Ham and a Cherry Pepper Hollandaise

2

Pinch of Everything

Savory bacon and cheddar waffles with sliced smoked ham, a sunny side up egg and a cherry pepper hollandaise. Perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner!

I was inspired to make this by Loring Place in New York City. It makes a delicious flavor combination.

Delish had a great recipe for bacon cheddar waffles that I followed.

For the (light version) cherry pepper hollandaise:

Diced cherry peppers
3 ounces (6 tablespoons) light or reduced-fat cream cheese
1 teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
¼ teaspoon kosher salt or coarse sea salt

Add the cream cheese, lemon juice, mustard, and salt to a blender. Puree until the sauce is silky smooth. Stir in the diced cherry peppers.

Mama’s Italian Meatballs!

Is Butter a Carb?

Hello again, friends! I hope everyone enjoyed their extended holiday weekend, we certainly did! Tikki got a surprise visit from his Nana & Poppa, it completely made his day. He always gets so excited when people visit, especially when Nana & Poppa visit.

Anyway, let’s talk about meatballs, since that’s what we’re making today.  When I make meatballs (and all Italian food really) it floods my mind with memories of my grandmother cooking and her teaching me how to cook. It also brings up memories of her cussing me out in Sicilian for tasting the food too often, I mean can you blame me? That shit was delicious!

She was, and still is, such an inspiration to me.  So, this post is for her. Let’s get rolling….

Ingredients: 

1 lb ground pork

1 lb ground beef

1/2 cup of milk (low carbers, you can use beef stock here instead of…

Eggplant Shakshuka Recipe

Slightly Sprightly Girl

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and I’m all for variety in this meal. Most of the days I consume smoothies, acai bowls, overnight oats and chia pudding or avocado toast for breakfast. However, some days I just feel an uncontrollable need to eat something spicy and that’s when I cave in and make something like I did today.
In no ways am I saying that you should restrict this dish for breakfast. Have it for lunch or dinner by all means.

One-Pan Dinner: Salmon, Green Beans & Potatoes

1

There are a lot of things I love about spring – flowers, thunderstorms, open windows and… veggies being in season! I love eating green beans raw, and springtime is when they get really good – especially here in Wisconsin. They are on my short list to plant in our garden this year, so I can’t wait to try this recipe again with homegrown beans!

We’re always looking for healthy, easy meals to make during the week and if you love beans and salmon, this is something that I would recommend trying!

What You Need

This recipe was for just Casey and myself – using only one pan, and it was the perfect amount of food + leftover veggies! You could make more, but you’d obviously need more than one pan, which would defeat the purpose. 😉

  • 2 Salmon filets (mine were marinated in lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, crushed basil and…

AMCARMEN'S KITCHEN

Hello Everyone! I can’t believe that it’s already the last day of March, meaning quarter of the year has just zoomed past in the blink of an eye! I felt like the first part of March went by really quickly for me, and the rest of the month just dragged on slowly to be honest. Maybe it was just because I spent the final week of my travels to New Zealand and Australia in the first week of March and the second week pouting about my post-vacation depression, and then of course dragging myself out of bed and to the office through the rest of March. I sound so pessimistic in this post in comparison to Wednesday’s post when I was all motivational and whatnot. Haha! I don’t mean to be pessimistic, I’m just stating the obvious lack of adventure in my life the moment I arrived back from my…
