Talk about an exceptional breakfast! I put together this Blueberry Breakfast Grain Salad earlier this week and it has been such a nice change from my usual egg and cheese english muffin. I made a few substitutions in the recipe, walnuts for hazelnuts and red quinoa for golden, that didn’t change the final outcome at all. My favorite part? The yogurt, maple syrup, and nutmeg sauce that you toss the grains in. The flavors of the grain salad really come together after a day in fridge.

Hold me back from the brussels sprouts! These sneaky little vegetables keep finding themselves in my meals, and who am I to say no?

For a quick dinner I prepared easy Brussels Sprouts Pita Pizzas with Bacon. The bacon was optional, but that just says to me – mandatory bacon consumption. Fresh mozzarella, sweet onions and brussels sprouts tossed in a garlic olive oil make this ‘za delightful. Magnifico!

Ever since I bought sesame oil, I have been going a little crazy for the Asian inspired dishes. Actually, ever since Trader Joe’s opened and I can buy speciality/interesting food items, my comfort zone in the kitchen has been challenged. You might think, “Lucky Mr. Mountainman!” but really he is a picky eater, so it’s all for me…and that’s just amazing for leftover lunches!

The Miso-Roasted Asparagus Soba Noodle recipe I made this week was crazy good. I made a few substitutions to the recipe, yellow miso (found at TJ’s) for red miso and portobello mushrooms for shiitake. I haven’t found black sesame seeds yet, so I just used regular ones. All of that being said, I am going to dive into my leftovers now. Don’t be envious or anything.

Oh, Denver. It is May and the poppies are blooming and you suddenly decide to snow? I shuddered this weekend when I had to bring out my winter coat.

To ward off the cold weather, I prepared a dish from the Smitten Kitchen Blog, Farro with Tomatoes. The recipe was a breeze to cook, used only one pot and kept me happy from the slurry of cold weather outside.

Needing an easy lunch for work, I decided on a Lemon Tarragon Shrimp and Orzo recipe. The basic ingredients of this dish are grape tomatoes, asparagus, shrimp and orzo tossed in a lemon, dijon mustard, tarragon and olive oil vinaigrette. You might wonder why I bought salad shrimp. Well, they are just little and cute and we all know how much I love cute things!
