saint eggs: a less sinner version of deviled eggs

In the spirit of Easter, I was inspired to create what I call “Saint Eggs” which is less sinner version of Deviled Eggs. The holiness behind these Saint Eggs are due to the fact that NO mayonnaise is used in this recipe. In fact, instead of using mayonnaise I substituted it with cauliflower purée. Then the Saint Eggs were topped off with a few drops of the halo goodness white truffle oil.

sweet potato egg breakfast casserole

sweet potato egg casserole what’s for breakfast?
I love casseroles because they are pretty straight forward and you can really make a casserole out of just about anything you have. On this day I wanted to switch things up for breakfast. For me, a casserole is kinda like trail mix… the different components are already delicious on their own but mixing them all together makes them even extra delicious :) It’s always good to change things up and this was a good change to my usual breakfast.

chocolate chip oat cookie bake

oatcookiebakei made you a cookie, but I ate it
Since I’ve started to travel for work I haven’t been in my kitchen much. My awesome routine where everything had it’s place and time including work, school, gym and keeping up with tastearoo got discombobulated. I’m still trying to figure out my new routine so please bare with me. On Fridays I’m home and today I felt like baking something. I made this little treat and it didn’t take long at all, I added some protein powder to compensate for the carbs from the oats and the chocolate chips but feel free to leave it out if you’ll like. Also, it was a good excuse to use my cast iron dish :)

Belgian Waffles for Starbucks Lovers

macchiato       chai tea

This recipes was inspired by (created for) all the late night party-goers, the hungry all-nighters students and the workaholics that need a delicious and fulfilling pick me up to help them recover for a long day ahead. Also, this is a concept that Starbucks would be able to capitalize from it if they were to use my idea in creating Belgian waffles based off of their already popular coffee and tea drinks.

happy pi day! chilled mixed berry pie

mixed berry pie it’s pi day!
The nerd in me insisted I make a pie on no other day than pi day! I knew I wanted to make something but didn’t know what to make; ultimately decided on this mixed berry pie that came out delish! It’s chilled so it’s more of a frozen treat. I made it on a small pie dish so you will need to increase the ingredients if you’re making it on a regular sized pie dish. I really like how it came out but the crust actually crumbled and didn’t stick together like I wanted it to :( I made it with nuts and dates, perhaps I needed to add more dates? Let me know if you have any suggestions!

cheesecake pudding stuffed french toast

stuffed french toastyou are the french to my toast
French toast is seriously one of my favorite breakfast foods. Speaking of which, have you had a chance to check out D.A.T. Chef’s layered french toast post?  His post reminded me that its been a while since I’ve had it so I decided to make some! This came out so delicious; I love it when I make something and immediately I’m like “why go to a restaurant when I can make something this good at home?”. After eating this, those were my thoughts exactly… and I also get the satisfaction of knowing exactly what went into it.

Layered French ToastMorning or Anytime Snack
I am a breakfast-and-anytime-snack type of guy which led me to dream (yes, I dream about food and recipes from time to time, that’s what real foodies do) about this multi-layer french toast recipe. In my dream there were three things that kept going through my head; breakfast, snack, and lasagna (which I interpreted as something with different layers of flavors). After writing down the recipe I had dreamt about, I challenged myself to come up with a healthier alternative that’s just as flavorful. This led to the “no carb” version of this multi-layer french toast recipe. So with that said I’m sharing my delicious dreams with you and hope that you will enjoy it.
