Blueberry Tahini Smoothie

Blueberry Tahini Smoothie

It is that perfect weather time of year. June! June, I love you.

It’s perfect patio temperature. Warm in the sun, cool in the shade, and because we live in the West, perfectly dry all the time. It’s light in the morning when I wake up, and light in the evening when I leave work. Sometimes it’s even light out when I’m thinking about going to bed at night… but I try to stay up until dark. Otherwise I might have to sacrifice my adulthood.

It’s also perfectly green right now. Utah is usually not that green of a place. But somehow this year we had good snowfall and a relatively wet spring, so things haven’t started to shrivel into wildfire tinder just yet. And with just a bit of snow still in the mountains overhead, it’s just gorgeous!

The weather is also great for running, as long as you get your run over early enough before the sun really starts baking. To me, there’s nothing better than running in the cool part of the day before the rest of the city wakes up. After work runners: I don’t know how you survive at this time of year. It is still HOT out at 6 or 7 pm, and I mean, if you wait until later than that, when do you eat dinner?! I am very concerned for you. You are going to be heat stroked and hungry – my two worst nightmares. My workout schedule clearly revolves around temperature and food.

Smoked Trout Scramble For One

Smoked Trout Scramble For One

Is it just me, or has this blog gone crazy for seafood lately?

Shrimp last week, trout today, and I even snuck some fish sauce into Friday’s mushroom lettuce wraps. There may or may not be a package of smoked salmon in my fridge, too, for another recipe I’m hoping to post next week. There’s not necessarily a reason for it… I guess I just decided it was about time to work my way through all the fish recipes on the “to make” list I’m constantly adding to.

And this one… this one is a keeper!

Mimosa Pancakes

Mimosa Pancakes

One of the best ideas I’ve had recently involves putting booze in your breakfast.

Champagne, to be exact.

Mimosa Pancakes

A Wednesday morning breakfast? Most likely not. But just put these in your back pocket for Sunday, yes? I’ve had them in my back pocket for quite a while. I think I posted about them on Instagram weeks ago. Well finally it’s pancake time – thank goodness.

Seed Demon Quinoa Flake Granola

Seed Demon Quinoa Flake Granola - 7 seeds in 1 granola!
F-f-f-friday!

On the one hand, I couldn’t be happier to see the end of the workweek. I’m currently traveling for work (always exhausting, no matter how quick the trip) and am pretty excited to collapse into my own bed. On the other hand, I am a liiiittle nervous that the week is over, because tomorrow morning I’m running a half marathon. Eek!

A 7 am race is not exactly a recipe for a relaxing start to the weekend… especially when it’s an hour away and you have to catch a bus to the starting line before 5:30. AHH! However, I can’t really complain, since I’ve been looking forward to this race for months.

Seed Demon Quinoa Flake Granola - 7 seeds in 1 granola!
Can I really run 13.1 miles? I ask myself this question before the start of every long run. Can I really run 7 miles? 8? 9? 10? Week after week, the answer seems to be yes. So I guess I have to face the fact that I will be running 13 miles tomorrow.

Brunch Recipes For Your Easter Sweet Tooth

Brunch Recipes For Your Easter Sweet Tooth

Is Easter a major holiday for you? Easter celebrations vary so much, from spending hours at church to nibbling on Cadbury mini eggs all day. (Can you guess which one describes me? I practically have to stare straight ahead when passing the Cadbury mini egg display in the grocery store…) But no matter which camp you’re in, I think we can all agree that Easter brunch is something to look forward to – especially when it is basically dessert before noon. Sign me up! Here are the decadently sweet brunch treats I’m salivating over.
