Note from Sarah: We recently introduced Rachel as part of our EverydayPaleo team.  You can learn more about her on the about page.  

As all of you moms and dads out there can imagine, most of my mornings consist of me rushing around the house getting kids dressed, making lunches and trying to get some food in everyone’s bellies before we all head out of the house for the day.  During the week breakfast normally looks like scrambled eggs and fruit in multiple varieties, because let’s face it, it’s fast and easy. Thankfully everyone in my house likes scrambled eggs so I don’t get many complaints, but when the weekend rolls around I take advantage of the extra time we all have together and try to make something more special and fun and…well…YUMMY!

On Wednesday I mentioned on my Facebook page that I have family here visiting from the east coast and as I type I’m looking out over the St. Helena mountains from Calistoga.

Sometimes the simplest of recipes are the best crowd pleasers and this frittata was a home run in our house!  Rowan, Jaden, and Coby all voted this “The Best Frittata Ever” so therefore, I must share it with all of you. It’s way too easy by the way, so no need to even fully wake up before you read and make this meal.

Southwestern Frittata

We are in the middle of packing up and moving.  Not out of Chico, just across town; but holy cow it’s a lot of work.  I’ve been trying not to buy a lot of food this week and just eat what we have so that I don’t have to pack and move an entire fridge of food and this morning we were down to the bare bones but somehow I made a breakfast worth sharing with all of you!!

Sweet Potato Latkes

My boys love Sweet Potato Hash for breakfast but frankly, I’m kind of tired of it, so last weekend I decided to make my pile of freshly grated potatoes into sweet potato pancakes, or latkes if you will. We topped the savory sweet cakes with bacon and fried eggs.  Yum.

Decadent Fruit Dip

When in doubt, keep it simple!  Following this one little suggestion has helped me tremendously in the kitchen and John used this simplistic approach over the weekend to whip up a delicious dip.  We picked up a box of strawberries from the farmers market this weekend and the yummy berries were the vessel of inspiration for my husband’s simple yet fabulous creation.
