I almost feel silly writing an entire blog post about this Avocado Toast recipe, but the combination is so darn good I just had to share. I’m not sure why it took so long for Avocado Toast to become the hot new trend. Avocados taste amazing and they’re loaded with nutrients (hello healthy fats!). I love eating avocado toast for breakfast with an egg on top for added protein. Avocados + eggs = a power couple. […]

6 Tips for Perfect Whole Grain Baking

However, if you’ve baked with whole wheat flour before, you know that it can be tricky and it is not always as simple as […]

Fish with Tomatoes and Olives

Today might be April Fools Day, but this recipe is no joke. This simple fish dish was sent to me by my dad a few years ago when I expressed a desire to learn how to cook more seafood. This meal boasts all of the flavors of a delicious Mediterranean feast, but requires only a handful of ingredients. I’ve made it with cod, tilapia, and halibut – really, whatever is on sale at the time. […]
