Eggs, Chocolate, and Flowers

by kara on April 5, 2012

  Happy Easter weekend!  Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  The fresh air, sunshine, and budding flowers just make me happy.   And the food.  What’s not to love about eggs and chocolate! We’re staying home for the holiday weekend and hosting brunch at our house.   This year’s menu includes a spiral cut ham from Lunds, a […]

Brittlebush Brunch

by kara on March 8, 2012

We went to Vail, CO last week for a much needed get-away celebration with friends.  Friends came from ND, MN, NY, and CO.   We woke up to Brittlebush Brunch on the first morning and quickly learned that Molly (who lives in Brooklyn, NY) is one awesome cook in the kitchen.  I’ve never had an egg dish quite like this.  I took one […]

Huevos Rancheros

by kara on July 11, 2011

Breakfast for dinner frequently occurs at our house.   It’s usually scrambled eggs with chives and toast.  This time, I decided to switch things up and make my own version of Huevos Rancheros from the ingredients in my pantry and refrigerator.   This may not be the classic Huevos Rancheros with a tomato-chili sauce, but I think it turned out quite delicious and satisfying.   In fact, […]

Spinach Salad with Bacon and Eggs

by kara on May 23, 2011

My very close girlfriend, Mia, is getting married in September. She and 2 other girlfriends visited over the weekend for a co-ed bachelorette celebration.  We had a fabulous time.  Very little sleep combined with lots of giggling, eating, drinking, and dancing.  We had a big BBQ bash at our house following an afternoon of Pedal Pubbing.   We made […]

We took a road trip to western ND for the Easter holiday.  In 3 whole days, we saw a handful of friends and family.  Whew! We  started out with a bang by having a pizza party (courtesy of  A and B Pizza) at my mom’s home in Bismarck.  The pizza did not disappoint, and we had a blast […]

LOVE breakfast for supper.  Eggs, toast, bacon. . .simple, satisfying, and kid-friendly.  In an effort to utilize corn-on-the-cob from our CSA box, I found an old Corn Frittata recipe from Cooking Light (circa 2005).  The original recipe calls for Smoked Mozzarella, but my grocery store didn’t have any.   I substituted Fontina (which is my favorite cheese for frittatas).  I made […]

Independence Holiday

by kara on July 7, 2010

We traveled to Bismarck, ND for the 4th of July holiday weekend.  Like many other families, our holidays almost always revolve around food in addition to socializing.  My mom and step-dad are truly wonderful cooks and went out of their way to make our meals special. My favorite meal on our trip:   Seriously, how pretty and simple is that?  My mom […]
