Eggs and vegetables are my all-time favorite breakfast combo. Since I’m always rushing to get out the door in the morning (but refuse to compromise with a to-go muffin), I’ve devised this simple one-pan breakfast.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

read the post

I made these the other day as I was in experiment mode and am still drooling over the thought of chocolate for breakfast. The appearance of coconut in so many of my dishes had the kids protesting, but these chocolate pancakes have a sneaky way of hiding the coconut flavor. The salted raw chocolate sauce is so decadent […]

Gooey, flavorful, light and satisfying. Need I say more? The original inspiration for this recipe came from one of my visits to Canyon Ranch.
