Breakfast recipes

My mama shared this recipe with me years ago. Although, it sat in my cookbook for quite some time. She would often make it for family get-togethers or weekend breakfasts. Every time I would remember how good it was and make a mental note to make it at home 😉 Then life would happen and I’d fall back into my go-to routines. That was until a few weekends ago. This all changed when my kids informed me that their daddy was a better cook than me haha! They went on to list all the amazing things he made; such as this incredible sous vide steak recipe that they say is the “best thing ever. ” To handy-hubby’s defense, he tried to remind them of the yummy things mommy makes. But he could only list a few such as my Brazilian beans, Brazilian cheese bread or my homemade granola recipe ;)…

The warmer weather is finally on it’s way (if you live anywhere cold like we do in Montana)! Fingers crossed 😉 As soon as it starts to warm up, my morning coffee switches from a hot latte, to an iced latte. Instead of hot tea, I make our favorite iced tea; Brazilian matte. And I say hello to smoothies! If I could only live off a few items for the rest of my life; it would be fruit, bread, cheese, wine, and coffee 🙂 So I love this time of year when Costco starts to fill up with all the seasonal fruit and we get to start having smoothies! There are so many good smoothie recipes out there. They are a great way to get both fruit and veggie servings in one cup and delicious at the same time. While I love any type of smoothie, my favorite are acai…

I am so excited to share this delicious and authentic acai recipe with you! Before traveling to Brazil, I had never tried acai before. In fact, I hadn’t even heard of it! Now, we eat it every single day. And it is good enough that I get messages weekly asking me for the recipe. So I decided it would be worth sharing here so that everyone can enjoy it 🙂 Upon arriving in Rio de Janeiro, along with the yummy pão de queijo (Brazilian cheese bread) that I fell in love with; someone introduced me to this refreshing “smoothie.” And I couldn’t get enough of it! 🙂 I can’t tell you how many of my daily meals came from a combinatin of these two foods. Pão de queijo are small cheesy bread bites, and best eaten warm. On the other hand, acai is the most refreshing and filling snack or…

Just a little bit crunchy, with a hint of sweetness = best granola ever. Slightly crunchy and sweet granola topping your morning yogurt, in a bowl with milk, or sprinkled on top of a homemade açaí bowl with fresh fruit, is a perfect way to start the day or take a break for a snack. Until you go to your cupboard to grab it, and you’re fresh out. Then one of two options come up. Go to the grocery store, or try and convince the mini humans to eat something else when their mind is set on granola. Or preheat your oven and get ready to make your own! If you have been on the hunt for an easy, quick and yummy granola recipe, keep reading! My family has been a fan of granola for what seems like forever. Although I’ve never been a fan of the store-bought varieties. Flavors…
