Breakfast in London

Hello friends!

I am back from London and ready to share. I have to say, London’s food scene was a pleasant surprise. Maybe it’s because I was expecting meat pies or bangers and mash to be the gastronomic highlight, but I was blown away by the variety and quality of food on every street corner and down every cobblestoned alleyway.

Because I somehow managed to eat a month’s worth of food in one week, I’ve broken up my trip into several posts. First up: breakfast, my personal favorite meal of the day. Dig in!

Moreish Cafe Eggs London

Moreish Cafe was just down the street from my hostel on Tavistock Place near King’s Cross. I walked in expecting to order a pastry from the case I spotted from outside, but was pleasantly surprised to see that they offered full breakfast dishes as well. Their menu has a Spanish flair, and the dish I ordered was simply called “eggs on toast”. Eggs benedict by any other name tastes just as delicious. Continue reading

We hope you had some time to rest and some time to spend with loved ones and we hope it was spent with amazing food.

I’ve currently got a bit of the post Thanksgiving blues. Soon it won’t be acceptable to spend my day in sweatpants and eat plates of turkey and pies. My favorite holiday is over and my stash of leftovers is quickly diminishing. Before I gobble everything up, I want to share a quick breakfast recipe with you that involves Thanksgiving leftovers.

Pumpkin Spice Bread

I feel like I’m late to the pumpkin party this year. Starbucks’ PSL came out before the summer even ended and other delicious pumpkin recipes have been popping up all over social media. Orange is the official color of October and November; pumpkin is the food that comes knocking before the big turkey day. Yup, we’re less than a month away from Thanksgiving and I haven’t a clue what I’ll be posting for the blog. Blogging and time management at its finest.

But let’s face it – this pumpkin fest ain’t over until the fat turkey sings. I’m going to get all gushy about Thanksgiving for the next few weeks but it is my favorite holiday. Any day that revolves around food and sleeping is my kind of holiday. Continue reading

I hope you all enjoyed last weekend, the most Fall-ish weekend yet! I hope you went apple picking and wore cozy sweaters and your favorite Fall boots. Maybe there were some cider doughnuts thrown in the mix. I hope you did everything you wanted to do and more.

Sadly, I did not have that kind of weekend. My Sunday night ended in tears, only because I am apparently overly sensitive and become unreasonably attached to fictional characters. I just have a lot of feelings, you guys.

As much as I want to forget about it, and feel slightly ridiculous talking about it, what I’m referring to is the first episode of The Walking Dead’s new season. For those of you who don’t watch it, you can skip ahead to all the challah-talk below. Continue reading

Loaded Shakshuka

It’s Friday! Or rather, Fri-yay! It’s been a long week, guys. I haven’t been getting much sleep this past week. I can blame it on my lifelong preference for nocturnal activities, or I can blame it on Pablo Escobar. Yes, “Narcos” has me stuck in bed, refusing to close my eyes because the chase for the kingpin is too suspenseful to turn away from. I think I’ll be the victim of “Chef’s Table France” next. I definitely have TV show FOMO.

But the weekend is here and I’m ready to get out of bed for good brunch food. Bring me all the eggs, please. Mimosas not optional. Continue reading
