What’s on MY Plate?

One of my favorite foods is plain yogurt. It goes oh so well in baked goods. And with fresh fruit and granola? Delish! I also like it plain, drizzled with maple syrup. It makes the perfect breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Recently, I made this yogurt parfait with all of the above: fresh blueberries, plain yogurt, homemade granola, and that sweet drizzle of maple syrup.

It had been a busy day of cooking and I was finally going to put my feet up. I had this pretty “staged” photo all set up, but I thought since this is all about “real meals,” I show ya exactly how it was served — on the couch, in my lap, with my feet curled up beneath me.

That apron makes a pretty good back drop, don’t it?

Needless to say, it was a great lunch and a tasty pick-me-up.

  1. That looks good, Jessica. I love the picture. Such a unique perspective but it fits your blog so well.

  2. I haven’t had breakfast yet, those brownies look so good! Thank you for hosting. This week I shared a new chicken recipe. The sauce was good, but I was so hungry I didn’t let it reduce enough. Next time I’ll be more patient.

  3. LOVE yogurts like that! It looks great, thanks!

  4. Love making homemade granola…fresh fruit and creamy yogurt! My favorite brekkie.

    That looks yummy! I had to have a treat today too. I am 35 weeks pregnant with #2, and #1 is currently a snotty, runny-nosed little toddler who didn’t sleep very well. So Mama made a Decaf Mocha Frappuccino as a naptime treat.

    I didn’t measure anything, but here’s my best guess:
    - 1-1/2 cups vanilla ice cream (about half of a pint, which I realize is technically 1 cup)
    - 2 tbsp. chocolate syrup
    - 1/4 to 1/2 cup milk
    - 1 packet single serve decaf instant coffee (I believe it’s about a teaspoon)

    Blend. Enjoy. It tasted just as good as Starbucks, if not better. Clearance ice cream, free sample coffee, and milk and syrup from the fridge = yummy and cheap!

  6. I eat plain greek yogurt with fruit and nuts every morning. One of these days I am going to try making my own yogurt. I keep seeing recipes for it but haven’t tried it yet.

  7. Hi! I’m new here! I’m linking up the cake I’m making for my mother’s birthday dinner tonight.
