Jen’s Hibachi Fried Rice

I had a little leftover brown rice from making sushi last night, so I thought I’d turn it into breakfast. 😀 Yeah, I know – A hibachi refers to the actual heating device, and I am using it to refer to the vegetables typically served at a hibachi restaurant. Hopefully, you’ll forgive that after you taste this!

Jen’s Eggs in Purgatory

Eggs in Purgatory. I was first introduced to this dish watching Nigella Lawson. She talked about working as cleaning staff in a hotel in Italy to fund her travels. She waxed on about the sunshine and the views, then in classic Nigella style, switched gears from this idyllic imagery to talking about the best hangover breakfast dish with a smile. <snort> That woman has made me cough on more coffee! It is an amazing, effortless dish, and I hope you love my take on it.

Jen’s Mother and Child Reunion

My favorite brunch place in Ft. Worth is Bird Cafe. *Amazing* food and it has a bit of a New Orleans feel. If you’re ever in town, it’s a must-do! They have a dish called “The Mother and Child Reunion”. <I know!> Sick joke but amazing dish. Fried chicken and a poached egg over chili cheese grits with a spoonful of bacon gravy. This is my healthy spin on that.

Jen’s Poblano, Potato, and Mushroom Breakfast Tacos

Delicious, easy, filling, hand-held, happiness-inducing little pockets of joy. I adore breakfast tacos. They actually freeze pretty well, so you can skip the avocado, fold them up burrito-style, pop them in a vacuum sealed bag, and take them camping, just reheating in a little skillet over the fire. Skip the bacon if you want a vegetarian version. Hope you love them!

Jen’s Grain-Free Apricot and Pistachio Pancakes

When we lived in New York, one of our favorite anniversary spots was Dawat, Madhur Jaffrey’s place on 58th. So good! I don’t know if it’s still on the menu, but she used to make a naan bread filled with apricots and pistachios that was to die for. That was the inspiration for my pancakes. Hope you love them!

Jen’s Steak and Eggs with an Herb Sauce and Tomatoes

My herb sauce is similar to chimichurri, but I use about ¼ of the oil. I like to keep it about the fresh herbs. Hope you love it!

Jen’s Butternut Squash, Italian Sausage, and Egg Tray Bake
