breakfast & brunch

Passed on to us by a loyal Loulies reader, a quick winter breakfast we have come to love is one cup cooked oatmeal mixed with a tablespoon of each – unsweetened almond butter, chia seeds, flax seeds and a drizzle of maple syrup. It is good for morning energy, satisfies hunger for hours and is […]


Here is a family favorite we like to make when fresh corn is in season. The Vidalia onion is grated instead of chopped so it melts into the grits. It’s a really good southern recipe adapted from Virginia Willis. Serves 4-6 1 Tbls. canola oil 1 Vidalia onion 2 ears fresh sweet corn 2 c. […]


At Union Kitchen where we rent commercial kitchen space to cook for Chaya, pastry chef Meredith Tomason, creates seasonally inspired cakes, ice creams, and confections, using as many local ingredients as possible. She has a website called RareSweets that we have passed along to many friends. One of our favorite cakes that she makes is […]


Winter Breakfasts

January 31, 2013

For some reason, we think more about breakfast in the winter compared to any other time of the year – a hot bowl of oatmeal, a stack of pancakes, creamy corn grits, or poached eggs.

On Saturday, we soaked raw almonds all day to make fresh almond milk before bed (hence the nut bag) and […]

Exceptionally easy to make. these scones would be a wonderful weekend treat. Although we understand that many of us are trying to cut calories rather than add them, this is a great recipe and these are so delicious, we think they are worth the occasional splurge. Not too sweet, they are best served warm with […]


You may have had enough already of pumpkin, but we haven’t. This recipe makes a wonderful after-school treat, as well as a weeknight dessert and a morning snack. As memory recalls, this is one of Renee’s. She is a dear friend and a terrific baker. We’ve doubled the recipe so that you can make just […]


A loose version of this recipe was passed on to us by a good friend. It does not include any dairy, which we prefer when the weather is hot. You could even pour it over ice for a batido-style drink, then off you go. A handful of either or a mixture of spinach and kale […]

Defined, it is an Asian rice porridge that serves at the background for a host of different foods including pork, chicken, fish, sesame seeds, and egg. Rice is cooked in salted water or stock until it starts to fall apart and obtains an oatmeal […]
