Breakfast

Breakfast

Breakfast (or lunch considering how I usually get out of bed around 12 a.m.) is my favorite meal to cook. I’ve gotten it down to a science, really. About three to four months ago I had the great idea to have make my interpretation of an English breakfast by incorporating baked beans and sautéed mushrooms with whatever else I was craving that week. After having eaten almost the same meal every day, my breakfast go-to includes a combination of:

  • baked beans
  • baked sweet potato fries
  • sauerkraut
  • sautéed mushrooms with garlic
  • bacon
  • green onion and spinach egg omelette (or scramble if the omelette breaks!)
  • English muffins with jam or hummus
  • sunny-side up egg
  • small salad
  • green or fruit smoothie

What’s your go-to breakfast?

Milk Bar’s Birthday Layer Cake

First thing’s first: I love Milk Bar and Christina Tosi. The last time I went to New York City, I was there for three days and went to Milk Bar five times. I own the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook, spazzed out when Christina joined MasterChef, and went to the Twist pop-up in town.

My boyfriend’s birthday was last week, and I decided to finally redeem myself from the first time I attempted to make this cake (it sucked) and try to make my favorite birthday cake for a second time. BOYYYYYYYYYY, I think I came pretty close. (Keep reading to see how I made it!)

August monthly spread

August monthly spread

Throughout grade school, I loved using an agenda. I lived for using colored pins to color code my classes and moving that flimsy plastic bookmark ruler between pages every week. In college, I used Moleskines and loved my highlighting system to keep track of exams, club events, and personal life. My agenda was my baby, and when I graduated, I relied — miraculously enough — on my memory until there were too many things happening to keep track of.
