Mexican Street Corn Chilaquiles

Mexican Street Corn Chilaquiles
Chilaquiles have to be in my top five favorite brunch foods. Actually, make that top five favorite foods EVER. If you’ve never had them, it’s basically fried tortillas which are then cooked in a chipotle/Mexican spiced tomato-y sauce, layered with cheese, and topped with all of the delicious things. Including fried eggs, and in my case, avocado. And we all know how I feel about those two.

Peanut Butter Avocado Green Smoothie + Red Velvet Superfood Smoothie!

Peanut Butter Avocado Green Smoothie + Red Velvet Superfood Smoothie!
I have no idea why, but I crave smoothies way more in the winter than I do in the summertime. It’s a good thing because I can cram so many superfoods and healthy ingredients into my smoothies, which prevents me from catching all the flu’s and sicknesses! Another weird thing about me: I still drink iced coffee when its freezing. I just prefer it!

I have the perfect wake-up for this lovely holiday week Monday morning! Salted peanut butter cookie lattes. Say it with me.

SO good you guys. Combining my love of peanut butter with coffee was only a matter of time. And what better week to do it? It’s been so so cold, we got our first little bit of snow this weekend, and I need some extra energy to get me through this last week of hustle and bustle!

Whole Wheat Cranberry Orange Pistachio Muffins with Vanilla Bean Glaze

img_2082
The title of these muffins is kind of ridiculous, I know. I couldn’t leave anything out! Every ingredient in these muffins contributes to their amazingness. They taste like the holidays. Tart cranberries, fragrant orange, and crunchy pistachios mix together perfectly. I used whole wheat flour, and they’re sweetened with just maple syrup! So, they are a bit lightened up as well! I had to top the muffins with a vanilla bean glaze, because vanilla bean makes everything wonderful and warm.

How was everyone’s Thanksgiving/Thanksgiving weekend? I hope it was filled with loved ones, tons of delicious food of course, relaxation, and maybe some shopping! Mine sure was. Now it’s just less than a month until Christmas, which is pretty insane, but it’s hands down my favorite time of year. I love all the time with family, gatherings with friends, cookie swaps, Christmas music, food, and just that magical feeling in the air..it makes me feel like a kid!

So back to this sandwich. Omg. Thanksgiving leftovers are the BEST. I basically stuffed an everything bagel (the best kind of bagel) with mashed potatoes, stuffing, turkey, and two runny eggs. I also slathered the bagel with cream cheese mixed with cranberry sauce..so so good! The savory and sweet combo in this is to die for. I hope you aren’t sick of leftovers yet…

Sautéed Vanilla Bean Persimmon Yogurt Bowls with Quinoa Granola

Say hello to the most cozy, healthy fall breakfast! I am officially OBSESSED with this vanilla bean ghee. I’ve been making butter coffee with it every morning, and I dreamt up this breakfast recipe using it! If you aren’t familiar with ghee, it’s a clarified butter, so it’s dairy free, and super good for you. It has tons of health benefits including good fats and vitamins. I loooove this ghee because it has a subtle vanilla bean flavor. Btw, this post isn’t sponsored at all..I just really love this ghee! Sidenote: you could totally use coconut oil here if you wanted!

Crispy Plantain & Egg Breakfast Bowls with Avocado Chimichurri

img_0180
I can’t tell you how much I LOVE fried plantains (a.k.a. tostones). There’s a little hole in the wall Cuban place near me that has the BEST I’ve ever had. They pound the plantains super thin before frying them and serve the tostones with a garlicky mojo dipping sauce. It’s pretty much food heaven.

I was inspired to make my own and turn it into a savory breakfast situation! There’s scrambled eggs, plantains fried in coconut oil (twice!) to make them super crispy, a quick pico de gallo, and avocado chimichurri! I want to put it on everything.
