Snooze A.M. Eatery

This bright and retro Denver-based chain has made it’s way to San Antonio! Boy it’s magnificent.  Snooze A.M. Eatery is an eclectic breakfast and brunch joint that started it’s journey in Denver, Colorado back in 2006.  What I loved most about this place is that the ingredients are all organic and come from local companies and farmers.  It opened it’s doors at the Quarry Market on March 1st, and on March 2nd we showed up and enjoyed the service of the “Snoozers”.

Expectations Met at Eggspectation

So, it was a holiday and Kevin and I couldn’t find a nice spot to eat a delicious breakfast.  Magnolia Pancake Haus had a 2 hour wait and The Bread Box was closed.  (Which we still have yet to try)  So Eggspectation it was.  This franchise first started in Montreal, Canada and although it is a franchise, I honestly had never heard of it.  We walk in and it was quite a bit of a wait, but it was oh so worth it.  One of the most fancy and modern breakfast and brunch spots I’ve ever seen.  We spent the 30 minute wait drooling over all the items on the menu and before we knew it, it was time to be sat.

Lamb Scallopini Linguine

January 24th marked a year since I started my blog.  I’ve been able to share so much advice and recipes with you guys and it just makes me happy to know how much support I have.  I’m up to 1,004 followers which is way more than I’d ever thought I’d have by now. Thank you for visiting my blog for the last year! I did take a small break of blogging for the past few weeks.  I’m telling you, this third trimester sure is kicking my butt, but I’m back and ready for action!

When it comes to lamb, Kevin and I usually do chops or steaks.  We got some natural grass fed lamb scallopini cuts from our local meat market to try something new.  Pasta was the plan and we made it happen.  It was a delicious linguine, topped with seared lamb scallopini, tossed in a light lemon butter garlic sauce.  Here is how we did it.

Side Chick: White Truffle Mac & Cheese

Sometimes I underestimate myself in the kitchen.  I don’t have much confidence in whipping stuff together from the top of my head like my husband does.  He is able to think up something from who knows where and make it so delicious.  We were planning a crab cake dinner for Kevin’s parents and we thought mac & cheese would be a nice touch  as a side.  As tempted as I was to feed off of someones recipe, Kevin changed my mind. He told me NOT to look up any recipes and to use my imagination.  As I said, I’m not so confident in the kitchen.  I usually take a glance at other people’s ideas to make my own ideas, especially when I’m cooking for other people other than my husband.  Fortunately, making up this entire dish worked out for the best and came out fantastic.  Here is how I made my white truffle mac & cheese.

Italian Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

This is a pretty easy appetizer that I tend to make on days I want to feed several people.  It doesn’t take too much to put together.  You can even pop these bad boys in the fridge until they have to be baked.  If you like spicy things, then this appetizer is definitely for you.  You can always substitute the spicy ingredients that I used in this recipe for mild ones, but for me… the hotter the better!  It’s spicy, it’s cheesy and it’s meaty.  You can’t go wrong with these stuffed mushrooms!
