Favorites and Variations

It’s no secret breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day. So many things fit into the category of breakfast food and, for the most part, cooking breakfast delights are less intimidating to me. As a part of my goal to cook more, I rolled up my sleeves and got busy in the kitchen this morning.

I made mini veggie frittatas (onion, chive, garlic and spinach) ala Brie and Rachel. Hubs says they’re delicious and I enjoyed them too – I can see these featuring in my breakfast a lot soon. You cook them up in a muffin pan so they’re super easy to pre-cook and take along for an easy breakfast during the week.

I also wanted something sweet, so I put together those delicious looking muffins you can also see in the picture above. Orange spice banana bread to be exact! I nicked the recipe from our “New Best Recipe” Test Kitchen Cookbook. (I seriously love this thing, and it’s HUGE!) It’s a basic banana bread recipe just adding orange zest, fresh nutmeg and cinnamon. Holy yum! I thought I loved banana bread? I love these even more!

Hubs and I have a nice, relaxing day planned: a trip to the dog park, a walk, some reading for me/video game playing for him, and then spending some time with good friends later. Sounds like the perfect day to me! Soon I’ll have two Anthony Bourdain book reviews for you guys – I love that man.

To close, I’ll leave you with two gratuitous hound pictures. You guys can see how much he has grown!

Buddy says that if you live in Old Town (or nearby) and/or you have a dog, he’d love to meet up and play! Also, Happy Saturday!
