Hazelnut Cacao Granola

Some days are notably better than others, while some are notably worse than others. Last week I had one those “worse than others” days. I am a newlywed with a full-time job that I absolutely adore running operations for a local specialty coffee roasting company (yes, I’m one of those coffee people) while simultaneously being a full-time student at university (UNT in Denton) working toward my business degree where I’m required to maintain a 3.7 or higher GPA throughout my entire educational career, no big deal, no stress. Not only am I super busy, which is something I actually enjoy most of the time, but my commuting is absolutely crazy between work, school and “home”. One of these days I may just let Jesus take the wheel.

Ultra-Plush Johnny Cakes

Although I don’t know where the name “Johnny Cakes” comes from or if there were even a Johnny involved I do know that I’ve been testing out king-sized beds and pillows so I can get some king-sized Zzzzzs at night. Me + a 6’3″ tall husband on a queen bed = no good. Through the trial I’ve found out I don’t like my mattresses plush but rather my pancakes. My lack of sleep always leaves me ready to just spring out of bed and make my way to the kitchen for breakfast.

Go-To French Toast

Summer is winding down which means we’re enjoying the last of our late morning patio brunches and sun-filled mornings enjoying all of the sugary breads the world has to offer us and these days it seems like every day there’s a new delicious offering to try. But a definitely heavy hitter, french toast, will never be replaced and will always be a super solid go-to option. This a favorite of kids and fancy elites alike, so basically french toast unites us all. It’s also a beautiful blank canvas to create on although just some pure maple syrup on top will give you all of the feel good memories your little heart can handle.

Skillet Toast with Whipped Yogurt + Fruit

Getting married is easy, it’s the wedding that’s difficult. After an uncommonly short engagement of just a couple of months – which was also the amount of time I had to plan a small wedding – we are back from our Oregoneon honeymoon (sadly). That being said all of my time and attention has been tied up with packing, moving, unpacking, wedding planning, wedding having, traveling, honeymooning and readjusting to life. Even then, a girl has got to eat and this girl will always start with her favorite meal of the day, breakfast!

Turk-ish Granola

Does anyone else have a hard time getting going on workday mornings or is that just me? I work in the coffee industry and therefore usually don’t make coffee at home, but I need something before interacting with people in a more acceptable and civil manner. This granola helps as a “band-aid” until I get the real stuff.

Super Easy Overnight Oats

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

The new year brings lots of new projects and things to the surface that need to be implemented or managed. With that there’s a certain level of time needed to dedicate to each of those. That being said, I’ve been so hard pressed for time as of late that I have been heavily dependent upon quick meals and snacks. The most time that I’ve had for breakfast prep is overnight oats. If I can’t do that then I’m left with a banana on my way out the door for work.
