Egg White Breakfast Muffins

Hey there W+A friends. What a beautiful weekend we had here on the Island. Unfortunately our mom and daughter trip to Savannah was cut short this week due to hurricane Irma. It was a bummer, but I sure am happy my mom and I got back to New York safe and sound and were definitely thinking about all of our friends, family and those down South getting hit by this crazy hurricane. It was definitely an interesting 24 hours to say the least, but I wouldn't have wanted to spend it with anyone else! We made the best of it and still got to experience some good ol' Southern eats along the way! Would you think otherwise? I decided to do some weekly food prep since John is back to work and we like to plan our meals for the week. I had bought some fresh veggies at Trader Joe's on Saturday and decided I could use some for our breakfast. I love prepping breakfast stuff since cooking in the morning doesn't always fit into my schedule. For anyone who has tried the egg white bites from Starbucks, I absolutely love them. But almost $5 for breakfast can be steep, so I deiced to make my own. Here's what you'll need.

2 cups of egg whites
1 cup of mini pearl cherry tomatoes 
1 small onion 
3 slices of Canadian bacon
1/2 cup of part skim mozzarella cheese 
2 tbsp of grated cheese 
nonstick spray 
salt + pepper

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray your muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray. My recipe yields nine muffins. Saute tomatoes and onions in a nonstick pan on low heat. Once softened, add your diced Canadian bacon and cook for about 4-5 minutes. Once veggies and bacon are done cooking, let cool for about 5 minutes. Then scoop a table spoon of mixture into each muffin tin. Season your egg whites with salt and pepper and scoop into muffin tins. Top each muffin with part skim mozzarella and grated cheese. Bake for 20 minutes on 350 until tops are golden brown. Let cool and place in Ziplock bag for the week. Easy and delicious!

Each morning I like to take one muffin out and nuke in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds. You can also let sit until it gets to room temperature and then enjoy. I'm hoping to food prep a bit more this week for our dinners. Its always easy to have food cooked on days that seem to be a bit busier than others. I've also been doing some research on air fryers. It will definitely be my next kitchen purchase. I would love any recommendations on what your favorites are and what you like to cook in your's. Share your recipes and suggestions! We hope you all have a great start to the week. Stay tuned for more recipes too :)

Air Fryer Wings + Bacon Brussel Sprouts

We love using the air fryer for "frying" up some of our favorite dishes. From chicken parmesan to veggie fries and most recently bagels and empanadas, the options are endless. So we decided to try out wings this time around. It was the perfect meal for some Sunday football enjoyment. We also roasted up some crispy brussel sprouts with bacon and a cranberry balsamic drizzle for a complete meal. Here's everything you'll need for this dish: 

Ingredients (for wings) 1 lb of chicken wings or drumsticks  1 c of nonfat greek yogurt  3 tbsp of paprika  1 tbsp of oregano  1 tsp salt  1 tsp pepper  Juice of 1/2 a lemon  1 c of Kentucky Kernel seasoned flour  1 c of hot wing sauce (Frank's or your favorite hot sauce)
Directions Mix together yogurt and lemon juice with all seasonings and spoon into a ziplock bag. Add chicken and let marinate for at least 4 hours. In a flat plate evenly spread out your seasoned flour and dredge your wings in both sides. Make sure to preheat your air frye…

Almond Poppy Seed + Lemon Loaf

Happy Spring? Yes,  the question mark is needed since we had snow on Long Island today and its April second! I'd say about six inches total, but we were happy to see the sun appear and melt some of it away. We started on some yard work this week and were getting the itch to start doing some planting, but luckily we held out for now. Snow days are always the best days to test out a new recipe and typically we like to try our hands at baking on these chilly days. We just received some of Kodiak Cake's new Almond Poppy Seed Power Cakes Flapjack + Waffle mix. We decided to use this delicious mix for some baking and the results turned out absolutely delicious. Here's everything you will need: 

Ingredients 3 cups of Kodiak Mix  1/2 cup of nonfat Greek yogurt 1 tsp vanilla extract  1 tsp of baking powder  3 eggs, beaten  4 tbsp of unsalted butter, softened  1/3 cup of brown sugar  3/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk  3 tbsp of lemon zest  1/8 cup of lemon juice 
Ingredients (glaze) 1/2…

Slow Cooker Honey Parmesan Pork Roast

We made it to hump day! As I currently sip my coffee this morning, I have a batch of banana coconut chocolate chip energy bites (recipe to come) for a little after dinner or post gym snack baking in the oven. We had a pork loin in the fridge big enough to feed a small country so we decided to cut it and make three separate meals for the week. I typically roast my pork in the oven Cuban style and add some roasted potatoes, but I figured I could set it and forget it with this easy and DELICIOUS recipe below. I'm not embarrassed to admit that John and I pretty much polished off almost the entire pork loin. Here is everything you'll need to make slow cooker honey Parmesan pork roast: 

Ingredients 3 to 4 lbs of pork loin roast 2 tbsp dried oregano 2 tbsp dried basil 1/2 tsp black pepper 3/4 tsp salt 2 tbsp garlic, minced 1/2 c honey 2 tbsp olive oil 1/4 c soy sauce 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions Place pork loin in slow cooker. In a medium bowl, combine the dried oregano, dried basil…
