Brunch at Epicerie in Austin | A Time to Kale

Surefire Springtime Brunch Picks in Austin

Brunch! Is there anything better?! No. Well, maybe brunch on a patio. Give me a mimosa (preferably bottomless), some strong black coffee, and anything topped with a runny egg, and we are in business! Austin’s brunch game is pretty good these days, mostly on Sundays (get with it on the Saturday brunch, Austin restaurants!), but […] Read more…

Brunch at Bangers in Austin - Bagel and Smoked Salmon

Brunch (and Manmosas!) at Banger’s

As the entire world knows by now, I LOVE BRUNCH. And Austin has no lack of appealing brunch options. Frankly, it can get overwhelming. As I type this very sentence, I’m panicking about all the mimosas I might be missing out on. Fear Of Missing Out On Mimosas. FOMOoM. I guess it’s a good problem to […] Read more…

Fried Egg with Sauteed Tomatoes, Avocados, and Power Greens

Fried Egg + Avocado Morning Power Bowl

My two culinary fallbacks: Add more vegetables (Especially avocado. don’t forget to add the avocado.) Put an egg on it So it should be pretty obvious why this egg-and-vegetable power bowl is one of my quick & healthy go-tos in the morning. You could definitely play around with the ingredients here – I included my standbys, […] Read more…

Smoky-Sweet Autumn Breakfast Hash

Smoky-Sweet Butternut Breakfast Hash

I’ve been getting slightly bored of my typical post-Saturday-morning-gym egg-and-vegetable scrambles so I decided to change it up a bit and really embrace some fall produce. If you don’t have butternut squash readily available, you could definitely use sweet potatoes instead, for a more traditional hash. I think in order to make this one really pop, […] Read more…

Thai Panang Curry Breakfast Noodles

Spicy Panang Curry Breakfast Noodles

Yes, noodles for breakfast. This isn’t one of my healthiest creations, but I like to think I get some points for creativity. If you live in Austin like me, you know it’s been super thunderstormy here lately. Memorial Day was one of these thunder-and-lightning-no-way-in-hell-am-I-leaving-the-house mornings, and Rob and I found ourselves in quite the conundrum. We […] Read more…

Rutabaga Beet Organic Hash

Rutabaga + Beet Organic Breakfast Hash

So in my never-ending adventures with my Johnson’s Backyard Garden CSA box, I come across some curious specimens. And by “curious” I mean “I’ve always been too lazy to buy and cook them before.” Case in point, rutabaga. I’ve always known rutabaga existed, but I couldn’t tell you anything about it or how to use it […] Read more…

Gruyere Brussels Sprouts Quiche

Brussels Sprout + Asparagus Quiche

Happy New Year’s Eve! Guess who’s back in Austin after spending time in Seattle (and off the internet) over the holidays? ME! (Duh.) Not only that, but I have a whole bonus week off over the New Year’s holiday because I’m starting an amazing new jooooob (!!!!!!!!) and my first day isn’t until January 6th. Looks like it’s time […] Read more…

Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats: Pumpkin Pie Edition

I’d been seeing overnight oats all over the place (and by “all over the place” I mean “Pinterest” and “other people’s fitness Instagrams” of course) and I was intrigued. I’ve always been used to making my oatmeal the traditional way – hot! – so the thought of mixing my oats with a bunch of goopy […] Read more…
