Maple Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Maple Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

  So, I looked at the calendar and realized that despite the unseasonably cold temps here in Chicago, summer is in fact just around the corner. Thank you sweet Jesus because I cannot take one more flake of snow! With summer comes swimsuits, which means it’s time to put down the Samoa Cheesecake and the Double Chocolate Waffle Brownies in favor of lighter, healthier fare. I recently developed this recipe after eating the Power Almond Quinoa Oatmeal bowl at Panera. My version is warm and comforting, which is great on these still-chilly spring mornings, and it’s filling but not heavy. Working in a test kitchen means I’m around food all the time, so I have to be pretty careful about how much and how often I eat. And I have less than zero willpower when I’m hungry, so it’s really important to me that my breakfast keep me satisfied until lunchtime. Otherwise I will eat anything and everything in sight. I’m sort of new to the quinoa bandwagon, but I’m really into it. Quinoa is a grain that’s high in protein so in addition to this recipe, it also makes a great base for salads. I’ve been mixing it with roasted vegetables and feta cheese for make-ahead, weekday lunches. Nomnomnomnomnom. If you’ve never cooked quinoa before, don’t be intimidated! If you can make rice or couscous, you can make quinoa. I wanted this recipe to be thick and hearty so I used a 1:1 ratio of milk to quinoa instead of the more commonly seen 2:1 ratio. This recipe makes two generous sized bowls but you can easily double or triple it to...
Sunrise Smoothie

Sunrise Smoothie

We are in the thick of winter here in Chicago. The holidays are long gone and spring still seems so far away. My spirit and my attitude need a little taste of sunshine and summer. I’m craving flip flops, sunshine and swimming pools. I am a summer girl – I’m not cut out for this winter stuff! Yet, I’ve lived the last 15 years in one of the coldest parts of the country. What the?… If you too are stuck in a deep freeze, let me help brighten your day with this smoothie. The flavors of mango, pineapple and orange juice taste like summer. This smoothie is so bright and happy and refreshing. I just love it! I don’t have one of those fancy, powerful blenders so I like to let the frozen fruit thaw for a bit to make sure my blender can handle it. I put the fruit in the blender when I wake up and by the time I’m finished getting ready for work I just add the rest of the ingredients and blend everything right up. No problem. Depending on how large your serving is, this makes enough for about two smoothies – my daughter and I usually share – or enough for one large smoothie and a little snack later. You can easily double this recipe if your blender is large enough. On a side note – you can now sign up to receive emails about new posts and content here on my blog! If you knew how long it took me to figure out how to set that up, you’d sign up out of pity. And...
Spiced Pumpkin Scones with Vanilla Glaze

Spiced Pumpkin Scones with Vanilla Glaze

In 2006 I took a major leap of faith and left my corporate job to pursue my dream of going to culinary school. While I was in school, I worked part-time at the cutest little gourmet food store called La Pomme de Pin. I was so excited that someone was actually going to pay me to cook! The owner was near my age and had gone to culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, so I was very excited to work with and learn from her. We spent our days baking tarts and scones, making soups and sandwiches and talking about everything under the sun. By the end of my time working for her, we knew pretty much everything there was to know about each other. Now eight years later (how is that possible??) the store is closed and Erin is living in Australia with her husband and three boys. I finished culinary school, had a daughter and now have a full-time job running the test kitchen for a one of the world’s most beloved brands. Life has changed a lot for both of us since then but I’ll never bake or eat a scone without thinking of those days in her warm, sun drenched kitchen. Tips: This recipe uses a lot of butter and buttermilk instead of heavy cream to combat the dryness typically associated with traditional British scones. These factors produce a very soft dough that is more like a batter. It’s messy and will stick to your hands but that’s ok because you’re about to bake the best scones you’ve ever had. Go with it. If you...
