Baked Avocado Eggs

Avocado Baked EggsSunday is slowly becoming my favourite day. A day of guilt free lazing, a tasty brunch and good coffee. As an egg addict – I’m always on the look out for new breakfast / brunch recipes. I spotted this one for Baked Avocado Eggs on Pinterest sometime ago, and bookmarked it straight away. I finally gave it a whirl this morning. It’s quick and easy  to make. The hardest part is getting the egg to fit the avocado. If in doubt, I’d say scoop out a little extra. Better to have the egg sit a little more swallow in the avocado, than overspill. This is definitely a recipe you can play around with and add different toppings to. I used sriracha sauce on mine, a little chilli goes so good with avocado. Continue reading

But these certainly come close and as there is no butter or added sugar – you can pretty much enjoy these raw brownies guilt-free! In fact they have health benefits; Continue reading

Brunch Recipe – Breakfast Tart

Living Easy // Breakfast Tart
It’s been a while since I have posted a recipe on the blog but I promise this breakfast tart recipe will make up for it! Regular readers of my blog will know that brunch is one of my favourite weekend rituals. Usually I love to get out, try new eateries, catch up with friends and depending on the occasion have a sneaky tipple or two! But sometimes Sunday mornings are best served cosied up at home and just because your at home in your PJs doesn’t mean that you can’t go all out!

Recipe – Buttermilk Pancakes

Living in Canada I come across little things that differ from home all the time, pancakes are one of these such things. At home our pancakes are thin and flat more like a crepe really, and over here they are thick and fluffy with the addition of baking soda. Buttermilk pancakes were also new to me and I finally tried making them myself using this recipe a few weeks ago, simple to make and they make the perfect breakfast or pancake tuesday treat.

However as delicious as they were this Pancake Tuesday I’m going to stick with the old traditional recipe, you can catch (here) from my post 2yrs ago when I mixed up the days and had Pancake Thursday instead! Or you could try the Banana Pancakes I posted (here). Last but not least I also created a Pancake Pinterest board (here) incase you need some filling inspiration. Enjoy! Continue reading
