Flourless Egg and Cottage Cheese Savory Breakfast Muffin Recipe (Nutrient-dense, Low-Carb, Gluten-Free) My recipe for simple Egg "Muffins" has been one of the most popular recipes on Kalyn's Kitchen for quite a while, and it's something I still enjoy for a quick grab-and-go breakfast. But even the best breakfast idea can get boring when you've made it for years, so about a month ago I set my mind to creating a different type of savory breakfast muffin. I wanted a muffin that had eggs, but with a more texture and more nutritionally dense than the original Egg "Muffins.

" It took me five tries to come up with a combination I thought was just right, but I've made these muffins several times since I finalized the recipe, and I hope some of you will love these new muffins as much as I do. I do realize though, that with some unusual ingredients like almond meal, raw hemp seeds, flax seed meal, and nutritional yeast (along with eggs, cottage, Parmesan, and green onions) some people are going to turn their nose up at this combination.

The Neolithic people were great farmers. Honey was a very important food, as it was their only source of sweetness.

Are you looking for a quick and healthy wrap that’s maybe low in calories and more whole foods based? Or maybe you’re looking for a gluten or wheat-free sandwich option. Well, check out these raw veggie collard wraps! I would recommend sticking with a thick creamy filling like avocado or guacamole, instead of using a fruit or vinegar based dressing, as the taste of collards is quite strong and with just a vinegar or lemon base it won’t really be that delicious.

I have seen some restaurants steam the collard leaves as well for those who prefer a milder taste (sort of like steamed cabbage in a cabbage roll), so that’s always an option if you’re looking for a softer texture in your wrap!

#yikes. 2. 3. 4. Chewy Lemon White Chocolate Chip Cookies. Once I started my blog, and pretty much had a running stock of treats lingering in my apartment I made a vow to stop buying desserts when out and about in the city. You see, I used to be that girl that would seek out every new bakery and spend my days walking around the city with a cupcake/cookie/brownie from here or there.

I’m not saying that I never eat treats when I’m out, but eating my own sweet creations at home seems to satisfy my sweet tooth for now. Anyway, back in my pre-blog days, I had a mild obsession with the Lemon White Chocolate Chip cookie from Whole Foods. I’d find excuses to end up in Union Square only to peek in and see if they had any of these delicious cookies left.

They were just so wonderfully chewy and lemony and perfect. I’d tuck it away in my already heavy bag and take little nibbles throughout the day. I’ve been dreaming about this cookie for weeks and I have to say that I’ve finally found a recipe that is as good or even better! Ingredients Instructions. Curried Baked Carrot Chips Recipe. Recipe for Roasted Balsamic Zucchini and Mushrooms with Feta and Thyme. Last week I had some of my sister Pam's family over for dinner, and for a side dish I made this Roasted Balsamic Zucchini and Mushrooms with Feta and Thyme. When I worked on the recipe a few weeks ago and took these photos for the blog, I was using giant zucchini with the big seeds scraped out and cut into strips. When I made it again last week, I didn't have any big zucchini and had to (gasp!) Buy zucchini at the store. Both versions were really tasty, but the most amazing thing about this recipe is that my brother-in-law Kelly made family history by asking for a second helping of vegetables!

At the dinner we had this as a side dish with grilled pork chops, but the first time I made it, I happily gobbled it up as a meatless dinner, so I feel pretty confident about recommending it as a Meatless Monday dish. I used a pound of brown Crimini mushrooms, cut into bite-sized pieces. Then slice each piece into strips about 1/2 inch wide. Ingredients: 1 lb. Instructions: South Beach Suggestions:

Lemon. Lighter Eggs Benedict with Mock Hollandaise Sauce — Recipes from The Kitchn.

I have to admit I've never understood the popularity of the "Sunday brunch" at otherwise decent restaurants—the lines are ridiculous, the food often subpar, and you know as well as me the waitstaff have plenty of better things to do (like nurse their own hangover). My indifference to this cultural phenomenon doesn't mean I don't love a pile of pancakes and a fried egg or two; it's just that I prefer them from the comfort of my own home. One of my favorite brunch recipes is the classic Eggs Benedict. When I lived in Los Angeles, I used to make it every week as an early game day breakfast, since we had to watch football on Eastern Standard Time.

Back then I only knew how to poach one egg at a time, so it made for a slow moving meal to serve a crowd. While Eggs Benedict topped with rich and tangy hollandaise sauce is a very delicious way to celebrate nothing in particular, using two sticks of butter for breakfast is not something I really need to do on a regular basis.

At the arrival of spring last week, sitting in a wooden basket in the corner of my kitchen, one lone butternut squash remained. A butternut from last year’s fall harvest and my days selling and slinging veggies at a weekly Saturday farmer’s market. Oh how time flies. And yet how sturdy and strong winter squash can stand through it all. When I get all sorts of confused about life, which seems to happen a lot as a transient 20-something college grad, I remind myself to think like a butternut. As time is flying, another growing season is upon us, and I am beyond psyched. Until then, I feel fortunate to be savoring the last of the cold weathered season. After making this pizza, I can 100% say that if you don’t already have a butternut laying around in your own home, it’s worth making the trip out to buy one.

They’re definitely not the same as traditional pancakes (a bit denser and drier) but our resident carb-addict, Lil-O seems to like them just fine.

I have mentioned before that for me breakfast is the most important meal of the day because: 1) my parents always made me eat breakfast before school, even if that meant waking up at 5:00 am when my first class was at 7:00 am, and 2) the health benefits of starting your day with a delicious meal are many.

However, there doesn’t seem to be as many ideas for breakfast as there are for lunches and dinners out there. That’s why I am always trying to come up with new things to make my breakfasts more exciting. Because, let’s face it, if your breakfast is not exciting, it is easier to skip it or opt for a less healthier option at the drive-thru or doughnut shop.
