Happy Derby Day! Even though I’ve never been to the Kentucky Derby, and I know virtually nothing about it, I’d like to ride the coat-tails of this pseudo holiday and take advantage of the opportunity to make some food that I may otherwise have never tried.
I think I would be a better person overall if I had more kale salads and fewer banana breads. I would probably be smarter, faster, funnier, and more exciting. We may never know.
As much as I love food (it’s my soulmate), and regardless of the fact that I’ll never have time to taste every recipe I’ll ever want to taste (sad but true), I have, nevertheless, eaten the exact same food for breakfast nearly every single day for approximately five years.
Ok, maybe it’s not the most photogenic food, but it’s my favorite thing. It’s my desert island food. It’s one half of an Ezekiel English muffin with freshly ground almond butter. Continue reading

In an act of desperation and in a display of my addiction to accruing “visitors” and “views” on my secret food blog, I’ve decided to increase my end of April posting frequency in an attempt to see an increase in traffic compared to March. (How exciting for my five followers!) I’m not proud of this, but I can’t resist.
So, you lucky dogs, today that means I’m bringing you a recipe for Lemon-Garlic Roasted Broccoli.
Everyone is making avocado toast these days. I wasn’t sure I wanted to get on the bandwagon until I tried it, but I’m so glad I did!
This week, I was faced with the age old question.
What should I do with these dramatically overripe bananas?
Well, would you look at that? Now that they’re sitting in a skillet with some butter, eggs, ginger, and rum, they look a little more promising. Continue reading
