Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Tuesday, October 16, 2018
As we inch closer and closer to November, I always begin to crave those fall Thanskgiving comfort foods. Roasted potatoes are probably one of my favorite and easiest sides to prepare for a pot luck. You guys know me…Any meal that has minimal ingredients and doesn’t take too long to prepare is automatically a fave.

The awesome part about these potatoes is that although they are mainly a side dish, I can eat these alone too. You don’t have to limit this recipe. It’s that delicious, that you can simply bake this up for whenever you want it. Now based upon my photo below, I didn’t have any clean sheet pans to use to roast these. I ended up using a cake dish to put these in, but they still turned out just the same. The truth shall set you free.

I find that most times I will improvise when following a recipe. Whether it’s substituting an ingredient or simply using something else to cook it in. You make it work for you.

This may sound weird, but I actually like to drizzle a bit of ranch on top of my potatoes. Sometimes ketchup as well. But, these taste just as great even if you eat them alone. I hope you all enjoy it!

The Best Damn Veggie Omelet

Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Have I ever told you guys that breakfast is legit my favorite meal of the day? I just feel that preparing breakfast is so exciting to me. It’s as though I have endless options and can mix and match anything at my first meal of the day.

Seriously, I love breakfast food.

Truth be told, I feel like breakfast is when I really get most of my nutrition in. Creating a veggie omelet allows for me to mix in spinach, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms (also my favorite veggies if you haven’t noticed). And then, I always have a smoothie or a cup of fruit on the side.

Omelets are definitely a staple for me. The eggs give me that protein that I need to start my day, and it’s just so damn easy to make.

I will admit, though, that it took some practice to master my omelets. I’ve experienced the over cooked eggs. I’ve had the omelet that just wouldn’t flip properly. I’ve had the omelet that stuck to the frying pan. It happens. They don’t always come out pretty.

I don’t add salt to my eggs. I usually season my omelets with garlic powder and pepper. I’m that weird person that doesn’t too much mind the fresh taste of produce. Adding the cheese over top also gives it that extra flavor.
