Vegan French Toast


Why can’t all weekends be three day weekends?  This one included ALL the things I want in a weekend: friends, trail running, great food, tons of family time, a new water sport, and a BIG race added to the agenda. This is the hummus wrap from Cafe Del Soul […]

Crumb Cake


I have been slacking SO much in the running department.  If it weren’t for early morning runs with Aron, I’d probably only run once a week.  I think I’ve just gotten so into cycling and swimming that running has lost some of its appeal. With a trail half marathon […]

Chocolate and Cherry Scones

First things first, it’s Pizza Friday! This was last week’s pizza, but it was a good one. Roasted eggplant, roasted red peppers, feta and mozzarella over pizza sauce. I’m trying a new combination tonight, and if it’s good it will be on the blog in the next couple days. […]

Cinnamon Rolls

I’m slightly starting to freak out that my Mom’s leaving on Tuesday. I have gotten completely spoiled and I’m kind of in denial that I have to do this baby thing all by myself from 9-5 on the weekdays now. We took Ellie for a walk in Golden Gate […]

Maple-Blueberry Cake

This weekend started off so perfectly. Mike came home Friday night with little surprise for me: Yep, that would be an animal style grilled cheese from In N Out. This is only the second time I’ve had fast food this pregnancy and it was exactly what I wanted. Now […]

Whole wheat berry pancakes

This was the first thing I made in our NEW kitchen! I’m still trying to get used to the fact that we have plenty of cabinet space for all our stuff, and that Mike and I can both be in the kitchen at the same time without running into […]

Brunch Ideas (and Starbucks Giveaway!)

A few weeks ago I got an email about a brunch workshop, presented by Starbucks new line of naturally flavored coffee. Normally at 10 AM on a Monday morning, I’m timing my kids running laps, but thanks to summer break, I was free to go learn about the wonders […]

Cherry Almond Breakfast Cake

One of my favorite purchases in months was $3.99, and I found it at a huge restaurant supply shop in the Inner Richmond. It kind of makes my kitchen look like a murder scene, but it’s totally worth it. Never again will I repeatedly almost cut myself while bludgeoning […]

Sweet Potato Pancakes

Sunday included a few of my very favorite things: A race! (Never mind the fact that it was THE HILLIEST 5K EVER and it took me 30 minutes and I walked up one of the hills – seriously I didn’t walk any of the hills during the Boston marathon and […]

Rainbow Chard Smoothie

What is better than spinach in your morning smoothie? (No, the correct answer is NOT “everything.”) RAINBOW CHARD. It’s beautiful, and it blends perfectly into a Green Monster! If you want to read all about the amazing phytonutrients it has to offer, you can do so here, or you […]
