Egg Muffins w/Bacon For Breakfast On The Go!

The mornings can be so hectic that we don’t have time to eat a good, healthy breakfast and we end up grabbing a fast breakfast that may be full of carbs, sugar, salt, or preservatives!

Here is a quick and very easy recipe for a healthy, on the go breakfast option!

Ingredients:

-6 eggs

-3 pieces of bacon (crumbled)

-Seasonings: sea salt, ground black pepper, Italian seasoning, cayenne pepper, or any other seasonings you’d like to use

-Chopped green peppers, red peppers, red onions, mushrooms, and green onions. Feel free to add any other veggies you’d like to add

-Shredded cheese; I used mozzarella

Directions:

-Crack 6 eggs in a bowl, add seasonings, and scramble together.

-Line a muffin pan with paper muffin cups and spray pam in each cup.

-Add chopped vegetables and crumbled bacon to each muffin cup.

-Pour the scrambled egg mixture slowly into each muffin cup until all the egg mixture has been used.

-Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Set oven to 400 degrees and let bake for 25-30 minutes.

-Check the middle with a toothpick and if it’s still a little gooey in the middle, it needs more time. When the center is set and the muffins are puffy, they are done cooking. Once they’re done cooking they are ready to eat!

You can eat these egg muffins right away with salsa or by itself. Or you can store them in a covered container in the fridge for about 1 week. To eat, just reheat in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and enjoy!

Make these egg muffins and eat on the go for a healthy breakfast packed with veggies and protein to stay full all morning!

Brunch With My Buddy!

I’ve been living in NYC for 4 years now and I’ve gained a few very good friends!

So when I can, I try to spend time with them and keep our friendship strong! I went out to brunch with one of my good friends this weekend. We haven’t been able to meet up in a very long time due to the busyness of life so it was very nice to catch up with her!

We ate brunch at Riverdale Diner in the Bronx. I love their food! Every time I go to a diner, 90% of the time, I order breakfast food which is my favorite! Haha!

Who likes breakfast food as much as I do?! 😁

Bacon and Peanut Butter?! Weird Food Combinations That Are Delicious! 

1. Avocado and Chocolate



2. Strawberry and Tomato



3. Dark Chocolate and Parmesan Cheese



4. Oranges and Olives



5. Yogurt and Eggs



6. Bacon and Peanut Butter 



7. Olive Oil and Ice Cream


Out of crazy weird combos, I would try out the bacon and peanut butter since I’m a fan of both. It’ll probably have a sweet and salty taste to it! 

Avocado and chocolate sound interesting! They’re both soft and have a creamy taste so this could work.

The only combo that I’m a little thrown off by is the orange and olives! Olives have such a tangy taste and firmer texture. Oranges are a have a slight tang but are still sweet so I’m not sure how these two items would taste together. 

So what do you guys think of these food pairings?! 

Have you guys had any of the food combos before? 

I’d be interested to hear about your experience! 

My Family Visits NYC!

My parents, sister, aunt, uncle, and granny cane into town from PA/OH to come visit my husband and I. 

My mom told me that they wanted to visit a few places in Manhattan but when they arrived on Friday, everyone was super tired. So we ended up ordering food from an Italian restaurant up the street from my apartment. 

It was nice to be able to relax with them. We watched this movie called Central Intelligence starring Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. It was hilarious!

Saturday, I took them to a popular shopping area in the South Bronx where there are a whole bunch of stores on 3rd Ave. My family loved it and bought so many things! I ended up buying a few things too! =)

Some shops on 3rd Ave!

Later that night, we had a pot luck dinner at my place and game night! My mom’s family is from NYC so her brothers and niece came out to join us for the night.

L to R: Baked Ziti by mom n law, Lemon Garlic Chicken and BBQ Bacon Chicken made by me, potato salad, and Pasta Salad made by my husband!
Back row L to R: Sweet Plantains, Spanish Rice, Spanish Rice, White Rice…Front Row L to R: Beef Stew, Chicken Stew, Potato Salad, Beans
 

My mother n law and a few of her family members joined us as well. 

We played this game called “Heads Up” which is super fun! We also played Jenga
which was harder than I thought because you need to have a steady hand when moving those blocks around!

Sunday morning, my family headed home.

It was so refreshing to have my family spending time together because it’s been a while since we’ve all gotten together. It was such a pleasure and can’t wait to do it again! I love my family =)

My family!
