Breakfast Street Tacos

Did you know there’s such a thing as a taco diet?  A diet in which you eat only tacos.  I think I could be onboard with that.  Tacos are seriously my favorite.   The kids love them too.  Sometimes when I’m making something I don’t think they’ll eat, I put it in a tortilla and tell


Cheesy Mushroom Toast

I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed with avocado toast.  Trust me I’ve had it and you won’t hear me complaining. There’s something very comforting about toast…the ultimate carbohydrate as a vehicle for deliciousness.  And I always make toast with real butter.  Real, salted, butter.  Absolutely nothing wrong with that.  A crispy piece of bread slathered with


Fancy French Toast

Pain perdu.  I guess that’s what I should have called this recipe.  Pain perdu.  Say that six times real fast. Fancy French Toast sounds just as fancy.  I’ve always thought french toast was just kind of plain.  I mean, how fancy is it really when it’s just bread dipped in a mixture of eggs, milk


Breakfast Ramen

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day…or so they say!  And I am a big believer in breakfast.  Especially breakfast ramen.  I can’t claim credit for this – I saw a video on the internet for breakfast ramen and of course I wanted to try.  I used to eat a lot of ramen


Lobster BLT Sandwich

The great Beckmann move of 2016 is complete!  Finally.  We are settled in our new house in Avon Lake, Ohio…with a bunch of boxes. I think I have a good system every time I move, but I’m always finding room for improvement.  One of the best rules I’ve instituted is that I get a month


BLT Grilled Cheese

Remember how I went on a grilled cheese bender a few months ago?  I mean, can you blame a girl?  Carbs…cheese…what’s not to love about a grilled cheese?  So the other day I saw a picture/video of a BLT grilled cheese which made me drool…which meant (of course) I had to make one.  I didn’t


California Breakfast Sandwiches

I always ask my tiny humans what they want for breakfast first.  8 times out of 10, they want a waffle, toaster pastry, or something sweet.  The rest of the time they want “egg sammiches.”  Which normally consists of me scrambling some eggs with bacon, adding cheese and putting it between two slices of bread


Spicy Avocado Toast

Toast is all the rage now-a-days.  Personally, I like toast because there’s carbs involved.  And deliciousness.  If that’s really a word. Toast is a good excuse to use carbs as a vehicle for what you really want to eat.  In a creative way.  You can pretty much make toast any way you want, it’s up


Breakfast Quesadillas

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I love it.  I love it so much that I started a breakfast club.  Well, who are we kidding, I just have a friend over, make breakfast and we have adult conversation.  But I call it a breakfast club so that’s all that matters.  We’ve


Southwestern Frittata with Sweet Potato Crust

Breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day.  And breakfast for dinner?  Forget about it.  You can’t beat brinner.  Eggs, bacon, sausage, cheese.  The possibilities are endless.   So I’ve been on a big frittata kick lately.  You can pretty much put whatever you want in them (meat, veggies, cheese) and throw it in
