Wake Up with Waffles

Good morning world! Isn’t it a beautiful day? You may be rolling your eyes at me and agreeing with Zooey Deschanel when she said “In an ideal world no one would talk before 10 am. people would just hug, because waking up is really hard.” I get you. There seems to be two kinds of mornings. The I-just-got-hit-by-a-train-and-can’t-believe-anyone-expects-me-to-function kind and the I-love-myself-and-I’m-ready-to-take-on-the-world kind. Well, sometimes it feels like flipping a coin to see which one you’re going to have. But I believe there are things we can do to make sure we have the second kind. Getting enough sleep, exercising first thing, and a good breakfast are the things that help me the most. I don’t know what to tell you about sleep and exercise besides…do it, but I have a great idea for a breakfast to help you get going. Continue reading

Of Campfires and Cobbler

Einkorn Celebrates Hummus

Ignorance is not always bliss. For much of my life, I was ignorant to the greatness of our lead performer for today. We’ve finally perfected a soulmate for our Einkorn flatbread. Introducing…Hummus! By way of clarification, I do not mean to say that I had never heard of hummus. Of course I had. But I refused to try it. On what grounds? It’s humiliating, really. When I was first told about Hummus, my brain instantly went to a little stone we kept in our shower for scraping off dead skin – Pumice. Needless to say, that thought did not make me eager to branch out and try it. If you too are ignorant of hummus, don’t worry. It’s nothing like that. Continue reading

Dessert for Breakfast

Dessert for breakfast? That’s how I felt every time my mother made coffee cake for breakfast. Of course, her coffee cake really was pretty much a dessert, so we didn’t get it very often. But when we did, we were ecstatic. My mom’s coffee cake was the best, and we always ate more than we probably needed. Well, I’m here to share that recipe with you but with some healthy twists.

Einkorn and the English Muffin Man

“Do you know the muffin man?” This traditional song sprang from the Victorian era when muffens (German origin) or “little cakes” were sold door to door in Britain before private ovens were a thing. When we think of muffins, we think of large sweet breakfast cakes, maybe blueberry or poppy seed. English muffins are something quite different, but they didn’t come from England at all. They were actually invented by an Englishman in the United States. Continue reading
