compote 2

Now that it’s finally warm, we would be happy to not eat a warm breakfast for a long time (which is saying something since if you follow us here, you know how much we love to put eggs on everything)! My new favorite thing is the compote. Recently at the Smile Cafe in NYC I […]

egg hummous

For years I have been eating hard-boiled eggs with hummus spooned on top, eaten in a hurry, often over the sink. Because I’m gluten-intolerant, it’s a challenge for me to find fast breakfast options, and this is a fast protein meal for sure. Just now I came up with a nicer way to get at […]

breakfast board

We love this breakfast board that chef/owner Camille Becerra serves at Navy, our new favorite restaurant in New York. Other than the hard boiled eggs (which she does just like we like them–not too hard boiled!), there is no cooking involved, so we’re thinking this would be a great moment to copy for weekend breakfasts […]

french toast frozen waffle

One morning we had no bread in the house, and our daughter was whining for French toast. I figured a frozen waffle might do—we always have those around, mostly because nobody in our house really likes a frozen waffle. Well this is a way to actually make them taste good. Make it the way you […]

blt bacon

This weekend my husband came up with this version of a BLT. Using the inner leaves of some romaine lettuce as his base, he added in a stripe of mayo, then a thick piece of bacon, and chopped tomatoes on top. Let’s just say they went fast.


As you can tell from our numerous salad and breakfast concoctions, we are obsessed with hardboiled eggs. If I could have any superpower, it would be the ability to lay my own (edible chicken) eggs. We love them fresh, we love them slightly undercooked in the middle. Nothing bums our hardboiled egg high and interferes […]


There’s a great cafe in Tribeca called Kaffe 1668, where they have a Greek yogurt breakfast option that is genius. First, they scoop the yogurt (plain is best) so it looks like ice cream balls. Then they add in toasted nuts (I think these were pecans, but walnuts would do too). Then some maple syrup […]


When we were in London not to long ago, we were inspired by this healthy riff on eggs Florentine. This version uses toasted bread with a brushing of olive oil, poached eggs and a side of arugula with a lemon, olive oil and salt dressing. Yes, spinach would make it more Florentine. You could sub […]
