The school year is definitely going to be different this year. Are they going or not? Online? Who knows! I think I have one going and one online. But with that being said I’m going to need to have some healthy breakfast options available.
Aunt Esther’s Potato 🥔 Pancakes
Aunt Esther and Uncle Joe lived in this cozy two family house in Brooklyn. Before we even got to the door we would smell the potato pancakes cooking. I love taking a traditional family recipe and giving it a modern twist. These gluten free potato pancakes did not disappoint!
Simple Egg Salad
With Easter around the corner most of us will have a lot of hard boiled eggs hanging around…
Italian Salad(Pasta or no Pasta)
When I think of pasta salad I think of summer. But this Italian Pasta Salad can be served all year long hot as a main dish, cold as a side dish, and packed in the lunchbox the next day for a yummy lunch your kids will love! Don’t want the pasta? Put it over Romaine lettuce instead! I love making an Italian Salad for a crowd because sometimes I don’t want to make an antipasto and a salad. So, I combine them and there you have it! Like everything else this recipe can be adjusted depending on what you have in the house.
I have been making these egg muffins for a while now. They are filled with veggies and protein and are delicious. They go quick because everyone grabs them throughout the day, so double it if you want to have enough on hand.
You may have the last bit of zucchini growing in your garden, so don’t miss out on this special zucchini pie recipe!
Fill em Up!
Believe it or not, when I make salmon everyone eats it! I never have any left over. It seems like when I make it, nobody gets filled. So I usually make this orzo side dish along with it to fill them up and it is amazing! I love pasta and I love vegetables, so for me this is perfect. I eat it leftover for lunch and it could be cold right out of the container…
Uncle Joe’s Simple Salad
Joe prepared this the other day with my nephew Joseph and this is a perfect example of my summers in Long Island. Uncle Joe’s Simple Salad takes a few minutes to prepare and will get you dreaming about simple summers…
So, my boys recently said the words I thought I’d never hear. “Mom, everyone else at school eats Ramen Noodles. Why can’t we have it?”
So, I love my smoothies and I love my acai bowls and I really love make ahead meals that are healthy! This is basically a smoothie made into individual servings and frozen till ready to eat just like the acai. These smoothie bowls are perfect for an after school snack on the go!
