These strawberry and blueberry almond Dutch baby pancakes are perfect to serve for breakfast-in-bed! No flipping required, just pop the batter into the oven and out the pancake comes with fruit bursting through in every bite.
Strawberry and Blueberry Almond Dutch Baby

We’ve become a pancake every weekend family and I’m not even sorry about it.

This is a huge step for me as a recovering pancake-flip-phobic individual. However, they do say that the best and only way to truly get over an irrational fear is by unapologetic exposure therapy.

So, there you go.

Heyo!! As you’re reading this, we are probably hovering somewhere between New York and DC because YES we are flying to go a distance of less than 300 miles. So, what normal people would drive in, like…4 to 5 hours without traffic. Seems crazy, right?

BUT you’ve also never been in a car with my daughter and I assure you that once you have, you will opt to go through airport security five times in a row just to avoid an hour in the car with her. Really and truly.

We’ll just be in DC over the weekend for a Sunday wedding, so not enough time to do too much. I’m boycotting laying eyes on the White House (for obvious reasons) and I really don’t need any fake-smile photos of our family standing in front of it pretending that we approve of the man inside. And if we’re not going to sight see, I guess we’ll just have to eat! Thankfully, DC has plenty of good stuff awaiting us on the food front and I’m sure we won’t be wanting for anything.

Speaking of food, this week’s meal plan has so many great options for the week! There are citrusy tofu tacos, a healthy pasta salad, a bursting-with-spring linguine with lemony pea pesto, mediterranean chickpea burgers, and zoodles with a Greek flavor twist. Happy eating!

Can I just put it out there that kids are really weird.

Okay, I won’t speak for your kid. MY KID IS REALLY WEIRD.

On the day that I made these, she refused to eat her breakfast, which is usually her favorite meal of the day and the only thing she will reliably eat, AND her lunch, which was the avocado toast that I posted on Wednesday, featuring all of her favorite things (ie avocado, bread, and spinach).

These kimchi pancakes, on the other hand?

Avocado toast topped with smoky black beans, spinach, and fluffy scrambled eggs – hearty enough for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

As if what the world really needs is another recipe for avocado toast, am I right?

Buuuuttttt HERE I AM.

I also have like five cases of La Croix sitting in my pantry, so I’m pretty much the definition of a basic bitch.

It’s okay. I can take it.

This dinner-sized chopped kale salad is the perfect light but hearty spring meal. It is filled with small bites of apple, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, and Manchego cheese, then tossed with a smoky paprika vinaigrette.

What’s a girl to do when she has a surplus of post-Easter hard-boiled eggs in her fridge and not too much egg salad love in her heart?!

THIS (very much not egg) SALAD. That’s what.

Happy National Brunch Weekend!!!!!

I mean…Easter weekend? Same thing?

Regardless of your religious convictions (or lack thereof) I hope you have some serious breakfast plans. I have two kind of MAJOR breakfast/brunches planned for the weekend but we’ll see if I actually get to make both (or either) of them. It’s always a gamble.

Otherwise, I’m basically just counting down my last two weeks of medical school classes, which just happen to perfectly coincide with my countdown to Remy’s birthday. I CAN’T WAIT.

I’m sure I’ll be doing lots of indulgent eating at our Easter celebrations so I’m already planning on getting back to consuming vegetables en masse come Monday. This week’s meal plan is helping with that as per usual with great healthy meals like veggie-stuffed balsamic dijon tempeh buddha bowls, an avocado egg salad to use up all of our leftover hard-boiled eggs, pasta with a creamy cashew-based sauced, crispy tofu with string beans, and spaghetti squash with a vegan artichoke sauce.

Happy eating!
