Bex’s Best of 2015!

Hard to believe that the year is coming to an end. 2015 was one to remember for many reasons – 8 months spent in D.C. for the first half of the year left me with countless memories, professional experiences that have opened many doors for the future, new friendships, and a few more pounds along the way…

Bex went from one eggs-treme to another…

We all know I love eggs…I mean, who doesn’t? One of my favorite types is the traditional deviled egg but I must admit; I only have a deviled egg about once a year. Normally this lovely moment comes when my parents host their annual “Penfield High School Jazz Fundraiser Party” around the month of February, and my…

I just couldn’t Reese’s-t putting candy in my breakfast…

I’ve already decided that I am giving up peanut butter for lent next year. Yup, 100% positive. It’s a done deal. I don’t know what has gotten into me but living in a house with peanut butter addicts this year has changed Bex. It made me think…hmmm…I never really used to indulge in peanut butter that much. I…

I b(rusch)etta come up with an apple-ing pun for this recipe…

“How do you eat that plain Greek yogurt by itself, Bex?” my housemate Abbey asked me one day as I made a breakfast parfait with Chobani plain Greek yogurt. “You just have to jazz it up, Ab!” I responded. “It’s amazing!” Easy, creamy, beautiful, Chobani. Ok wait…that just sounded like a Covergirl advertisement… Chobani’s non-fat…

Let’s Give ‘Em Pumpkin to Talk About…

Less than 24 hours until Bex gets to go home for her first ever mid-semester break in all of college history! Here I come Penfield, NY! I can’t wait to see my lovely family, enjoy the joy and comfort of home and share the world of Rochester, NY with my good friend, Cate who is…

Citrus-elf down and make a Baked Cinnamon Grapefruit Delight!

Another snow day in DC, baby! Ah, the feeling of waking up and knowing that I can experiment in the kitchen with a new breakfast treat is great! I have been dying to try baked grapefruit for quite some time now, and let me tell you; it is absolutely unreal. Before placing the grapefruit in the…

Kum-quat, Come all!

Interestingly enough, as I sit here typing this blog post, I am in my DC apartment after just being notified of a two hour delay for all Federal agencies in Washington, DC due to a whopping amount of snow, folks. That is correct. Not two feet. Not even two inches….but yes, a light sprinkle of white feather-dust…

Will you berry me, Breakfast Blueberry-Nut Oatmeal?!

What a nice morning to wake up to a lovely snow flurry that really came out of the blue(berry)! Nothing keeps the holiday spirit alive throughout the winter months quite like a beautiful snow globe view from my windowsill. And what better way to accompany a gorgeous snowfall then with a warm bowl of oatmeal accompanied by a…

Holy crepe, it’s 2015!

2014 allowed me to see how investing time in something I am truly passionate about can open up new possibilities and even more creativity in many aspects of my life. When I started “Breakfastwithbex” in March of 2014 as a spontaneous food Instagram account, I truly never expected to be ringing in the new year with my…

All I want for Christmas is…

I don’t want a lot for Christmas…there is just one thing I need: These simple pancakes layered with strawberries, banana slices, and vanilla greek yogurt. Merry (early) Christmas to me! I am so sorry that I have not posted since Thanksgiving! Between finals, research papers, and meetings to close-off the Fall semester, I barely had…

This breakfast is so parfai(c)t I can dairy-ly handle it…

As many of you know, I love making breakfast every morning. But what I love more than just making breakfast for myself is when I am able to share my breakfast creations with friends and family. When Assistant Director of Editorial Services & Social Media at SLU, Meg Bernier, wanted to meet to discuss my…

Prepare to FALL in love with this Pumpkin Spice & Apple Cinnamon Parfait

There are ONLY 68 DAYS until Christmas, which means that Bex currently listens to Michael Buble’s Christmas album 24/7, discusses Christmas presents with her mom at least three times during a given day and cannot wait to start decorating for the holiday season. But, Bex should not jump the gun too soon (or is it already too late…?) because fall is still…
