It’s finally time to go back to school. After months and month of being together as a family our boy is headed back to in-person class. I find myself excited about our new/old routine and have promised my family to start the day with a delicious breakfast every morning. #MorningsMeanMore these days as a time to be present and connect before the distraction of the day. On special days Blueberry Oat Cereal Milk Pancakes (my son’s favorite) will be my go to breakfast and on the days when time is not on our side I’ll serve the epic combo of #RealCaliforniaMilk and Cereal.(more…)

I am so grateful for your existence, and feel super lucky to call you my partner. I wanted to surprise you with a special breakfast, and I know that pizza is your favorite. Since you are my warm and fuzzy I desired to do something sweet for you. I ordered everything I needed from Northgate Market so I could give you my Cupid’s Arrow Breakfast Pizza. I made it with Mozzarella cheese, papas, roasted red peppers, and jalapeños. Each time you tear into this heart-shaped pizza pie remember how much I adore you. Thank you for putting a smile on my face, and for being so supportive always.

Ingredients for Cupid’s Arrow Breakfast Pizza:
- a batch of pizza dough – Click here for recipe
- 2 tablespoons Olive oil
- 2 tablespoons cornmeal
- 4 cups Mozzarella Cheese
- 1/4 cup sliced pickled jalapeños
- 1/4 cup roasted red bell pepper
- 2 potatoes, cooked and cut into heart shapes and arrow
- 4 eggs
Bring dough to room temp
Rub a baking sheet lightly with olive oil an hour and half before you’re ready to bake.
Pull plastic wrapped dough out of the refrigerator to come to room temperature.
45 minutes before ready to put your pizza in the oven, place a pizza stone on rack 1/4 of the way up from bottom of oven. Preheat oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
Prepare the ingredients
Fry your potato hearts and arrow pieces. Set to the side.
Take one of your dough balls and place on a lightly floured surfaced and shape into a disk. Then continue to pull out into the desired size of your pizza by draping it over the back of your hands, and continue to rotate dough with the back of your hands in a clockwise motion with the aid of your thumbs.
Sprinkle your lightly olive oiled baking sheet with a pinch of cornmeal then lay pizza dough directly on top to form shape. Continue to go around the edges forming a slightly raised rim with the tips of your fingers by pinching and gathering the dough. Then shape into a heart.
Drizzle a 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil on the inside of the heart and then spread it around the inside with you fingers avoiding the rim.
Top with 1 cup mozzarella cheese, a few jalapenos, red roasted bell pepper, and a few potato hearts. Break a raw egg in the middle and place pizza in oven for 11 minutes or until crust is golden!
Bake each pizza one at a time. Place your heart shaped pizza on a plate and decorate with potato arrows, and serve with coffee, fresh fruit, a little salad.
A few weeks ago I was making Tortillas Con Huevo and casually shared them on my Instagram Stories. As I was adding in the eggs to my already crispy tortilla pieces I remembered an incident that had happened many moons ago. My uncle’s friend had come over to our house in City Terrace and asked upon stepping into our casa “Are you guys cooking Tortillas Con Huevo?” He said it like he wasn’t sure if that’s what it’s called, almost with a puzzled look on his face. In that instant I realized this thrown together heavenly breakfast is nameless.(more…)

Sugar Top Blueberry Muffins – Making my sun rise from the highest heights.
Since the pandemic, I started hiking a few times a week in a place where I virtually see hardly anyone else. It’s a great way to unload some anxiety and replace it with endorphins. It elevates my mood, allows a little bit of adventure to my life which was once upon a time jam packed with experience, AND it gets my heart racing. <3(more…)
Pan Dulce French Toast: I’m officially that gal that uses every little scrap of food in the house. I’ve learned a few tricks during this pandemic of how to preserve and make things stretch for longer than usual. My grandfather was raised during the depression and was seriously the master of conserving food. Thankfully I remembered a few of the things he taught me that I used to take for granted, and didn’t pay much mind to. He would freeze bread or tortillas if we had too much in the house. Or toast bread that was a few days old and then dunk it in his coffee. He was so crafty that way.(more…)
