You may be like me in that you tend to grab the same fruits every time you go to the grocery store: bananas, apples, more bananas, oh look…Fuji apples! Occasionally, when other fruits are on sale, I will grab some blueberries, strawberries, or grapefruit but the other day I came to thinking how long it…

You walnut regret eating these cookies for breakfast…

And the award for “Best Baking Intern” goes to (drum roll, please)….Breakfastwithbex! I’d say a pleasant sweet treat surprise at our monthly staff meeting was welcomed with open….mouths. Considering my supervisor ate 6 cookies in one sitting and I left work without a cookie to spare, I shall assume that my latest baking experiment was a success. Try…

Oh, there’s no place like home for the hollandaise…

Happy Sunday, friends! Sundays are a day to give thanks for everything you have: family, friends, good health, a roof over your head, love and…food.

That is correct. Not two feet. Not even two inches….but yes, a light sprinkle of white feather-dust…

Oh Deer, look at the size of that Buck(wheat stack)!

Well, the holiday break is over, which means less free time to experiment with new recipes, stage countless photos of my breakfasts, spend hours writing up blog posts and enjoy the many leisures of being home. But, what this also means is that I AM HEADED TO DC!!!! I am excited, anxious, and I will admit, a bit nervous…
