Before I start talking about how ridiculously awesome homemade bagels are, I need your help!

I recently entered into a recipe contest for Food.com where I made Mexican Breakfast Tostadas with Avocado Pico de Gallo…. but I need your vote in order to win!  So if you would all be kind enough to jump on over to the site, register, and give me 5 stars… I would greatly appreciate it. I might even come make you these tostadas which include cumin spiced potatoes, black beans, eggs, goat cheese, and a spicy avocado pico. You need a margarita too? I know how to use a blender.

Really though, making breakfast for the special people in my life is my way of showing them I care. A creamy bowl of oatmeal with blueberries to share with my grandma, or a simple bagel sandwich to-go for a friend. My mom is perfectly happy eating toast topped with peanut butter, sliced bananas, and cinnamon. It’s those easy, delicious bites that really demonstrate my appreciation for them.

They do say that it’s the thought that counts…

Hi. I love you. I really do. I even had to make you a healthy banana bread to say so. Fresh blueberries, thick rolled oats, and a whole lot of soul went into making this bread.

Plain and simple, you people have made me incredibly happy! Ambitious Kitchen now has over 20,000 views thanks to you. And, just look at all these pins on Pinterest from my blog. Like, Holy crap! I’m totally blushing.

The cookies are gone.

The pie has been eaten.

The Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread can no longer be made into french toast for breakfast. Tragic!

Now that the holidays are almost over, we’ve got to get our skinny on. Let’s get obsessed with oats, nuts, and fruit!

Granola is the picture of health, right?

Before we put our skinny jeans on, let’s laugh over Christmas stories.

Sorry I haven’t blogged in awhile, I just got done visiting my grandparents.  It was an amazing trip.  I’ve picked a few highlights to share with all of you!

 Yoga at 10,000 feet on top of the Sandia mountains

This was the perfect day.  My grandpa drove my Mom and I to the Sandia mountains.  I packed my Grandpa a Ham & Swiss sandwich, which he loved of course.  Afterwards we went to a small thrift store, where I found some old cookbooks and random treasures.

Visiting a french pastry shop. Yum.

I found this place in Santa Fe.  It was absolutely fantastic! I think the best part of it were the amazing crepes. Blueberry, raspberry, and nutella too. Highly recommended.

Eating authentic Mexican street food

The best part of the southwest is the amazing Mexican food. I love spicy food, so of course I didn’t mind eating it everynight. Mmmm Sopapillas, tamales, and green chile!  My grandma gave me some of her recipes. Look for them soon!

riding the train to Santa Fe

This might have been my favorite day.  We took the train to Santa Fe and shopped in the plaza and in old town.  It was full of unique street vendors selling food, jewelry, and art.  It’s easy to fall in love with the culture.

The zoo with my Grandparents

 Look at these cuties! We got to spend the day at the zoo.  My grandpa even found a wild snake wandering around. He’s such a sly guy. I’ll miss them.

 

I wish vacations didn’t end… What would you do if they didn’t?

I’d eat waffles every morning. Maybe even for dinner.
