Cottage Cheese Breakfast

Here’s a healthy breakfast idea that’s a bit unexpected, but surprisingly satisfying…Cottage Cheese Breakfast Bowls! Sure, cottage cheese and pineapple or melon seems a little retro. So let’s dust off the concept and make a modern way to start the day. Top this high protein cheese with fresh berries or apple, cinnamon and drizzle of honey. One bite, and you’ll be a believer (we promise).

Cottage Cheese Breakfast

Cottage cheese breakfast bowls

Cottage cheese is great for breakfast because it’s low calorie and high protein: to keep you full all day long! Let us be the first to declare: the whole cottage cheese and pineapple idea has never been our thing. But top it with fresh berries or apples and cinnamon, and it’s a whole new ballgame. Promise! If you have a texture thing about cottage cheese, we get it. But we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised here! Here’s what to do:

  • Add ¾ cup cottage cheese to a bowl. All brands taste different, so find one you love. (We like the flavor of Daisy brand.)
  • Top with berries or diced apple. For the berry bowl shown here, we used blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. For the apple cinnamon, we used Pink Lady apples (our favorite variety!).
  • Add a sprinkle of chopped nuts. Go with pistachios for the berry bowl and pecans for the apple.
  • Add a pinch of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey. Both ingredients are essential to taking the flavors up a notch. You can use maple syrup if you prefer.

A healthy way to start the day

Make up a cottage cheese breakfast bowl and it’s both delicious and filling. One serving with ½ cup blueberries and 2 tablespoons chopped pistachios has:

  • 234 calories
  • 25 grams protein

One thing to watch with cottage cheese is the sodium: this recipe has 30% of your daily sodium. This shouldn’t be a problem if you cook healthy, whole food meals on the regular, but keep it in mind if you also eat lots of salty foods during the day.

Too Many Lemons? 38 Recipes to Make Right Now

Bright, tangy lemons might evoke images of poolside cocktails or a kid’s neighborhood business venture, but citrus season comes with the end-of-year chill. Starting in December, lemons hang like ornaments from small, dark green trees, ready to brighten up holiday dishes and treats.

We hardly need to tell you how many ways you can use lemon juice, zest, or rinds. From baked fish to creamy pasta and fluffy meringue, little lemons pack a mighty, refreshing punch. Their sourness stars in sauces and creams, and supports hearty stews and salty dressings. Plus, they add much-needed acid to pastas and poultry. So, if you’re looking for some lemony inspiration, here are 19 recipes to get you started.

Scones have always been a favorite baked good, and I love both making and eating them. Over the years I’ve made a plethora of them – every shape and kind you can think of. These maple oatmeal scones are a reader favorite, as well as my autumn inspired pumpkin scones. I usually make the base of my scones with crème fraîche or sour cream, but I was happy to discover that skyr works just as well. I made these Panettone scones with Icelandic Provisions Plain Skyr and orange juice (replacing the crème fraîche and heavy cream) and they were absolutely delicious. A mix of dried cherries, apricots, cranberries, pineapple, or candied orange peels (whatever you have in the pantry) are added, along with almond paste for traditional panettone flavors. What is Skyr? Skyr is similar to yogurt but because of the heirloom Icelandic cultures used to make it, it has a different texture. It takes nearly four cups of milk to make one cup of skyr, making it thicker, and creamier than yogurt. I’ve been using it often in my baking, substituting skyr for yogurt or sour cream, and have been very happy with the results. “A big jug of […]

Roasted Figs

This year, for some reason, fig season just refuses to end this year, which is fine with me. Figs have two seasons; the first is usually late summer and the second begins mid-fall. The second crop is better-tasting and toward the end of the season, the prices drop as the bounty increases. I was at the market the other day, planning to buy some figs, when…

This year, for some reason, fig season just refuses to end this year, which is fine with me. Figs have two seasons; the first is usually late summer and the second begins mid-fall. The second crop is better-tasting and toward the end of the season, the prices drop as the bounty increases. I was at the market the other day, planning to buy some figs, when I noticed a vendor selling them for €5 (~$6) per flat. So I scooped them up, or rather, tried to pack the lug of them into my shopping bag, and headed home.

Sometimes recipe inspiration comes from the most mundane and random of places.

Like slicing up and apple and giving it to your kid alongside a big spoonful of peanut butter when she gets home from school.

I love peanut butter and usually think about pairing it with jelly (in Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars) or chocolate (in Peanut Butter Cup Cookies), but serving Elle her after-school snack made me think about how well peanut butter goes with apples!

As soon the temperatures turn fall-like, Apple Crisp automatically becomes the most popular dessert in our house. And because of that, I always have the essentials on hand to make it on a whim.

My husband happened to pick up a bag full of beautiful pears from our local fruit stand, but they started to ripen way quicker than we could eat them, so I decided to put them to good use and whipped up this Apple Pear Crisp over the weekend.

We love to serve Apple Pear Crisp with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and a drizzle of salted caramel sauce, but it’s perfectly delicious on its own, or with a little dollop of homemade whipped cream.

Malt Loaf Is the Must-Try Recipe From ‘The Great British Bake Off’

Last Friday, The Great British Bake Off celebrated the start of its twelfth season on Netflix the only way bakers know how to do—with cake! Twelve home bakers participated in the first week of competition with mini rolls, malt loaves, and gravity-defying cakes. Wait...what’s a malt loaf? If you’re asking that question, you’re not alone. Nearly every contestant on GBBO asked the same question. Ahead, we’re explaining what this British tea-time treat is and which bakers rose—and which sank—during the first episode of Season 12.

What Is a Malt Loaf?

Think of a malt loaf as a richer, denser fruit cake. Prue Leith, a judge on The Great British Bake Off, makes her malt loaf with freshly brewed black tea, raisins, pitted prunes, malt extract, black treacle, and dark muscovado sugar (in addition to other pantry staples like flour, baking soda, baking powder, eggs, and butter). “This is a really old-fashioned recipe and those of you who are under 35 may never have heard of it. But don’t panic, just read the recipe,” said Leith to the contestants. A wise lesson to all home bakers who enter unfamiliar territory in the kitchen.

Earlier this week, I actually went shopping inside our local grocery store instead of doing curbside pickup. I’ve definitely popped into the store here and there to pickup a couple of random items, but I haven’t done a complete in-store shop in what seems like forever.

I spent way to much time browsing the aisles to check out all of the new items. When I came upon the produce section, I loaded my cart with way more fresh fruit than we needed, but I couldn’t resist because everything looked so good!

Once I came home and washed and prepped everything, I decided to whip up this Orange Fruit Dip to serve up with all of the gorgeous berries, peaches, nectarines, pineapple and oranges that I picked up
