Blueberry Cream Cheese Omelettes

Blueberry Cream Cheese Omelettes

Serves: 2

Time: 20

Difficulty: Easy

This morning, I was jonesing to make a University of Michigan inspired breakfast in honor of the Wolverine’s 2018 football season kicking off. In the past, I’ve made lots of blueberry muffins, pancakes, and even block M pancakes. But today, I wanted to do something new. So after a bit of searching for inspiration, I decided upon these Blueberry Cream Cheese Omelettes, which were inspired and compiled together via a couple different recipes I found. The end result was delectable and delightful. It wasn’t as sweet as a crêpe, and not as savory as a “regular” omelette, but was a nice amalgamation of the two. So if you’re looking for a new recipe that will satisfy both sweet and savory, give this a shot. You’ll be glad you did!

Serves: 12

Time: 1 hour

Difficulty: Easy

I recently found this recipe for Banana Blueberry Bars from Forks Over Knives, and knew I had to try it. They are moist and fluffy — similar to a banana bread or muffin — and providing a healthy, filling, and delicious treat to provide lasting energy. As an added bonus, they are both vegetarian- and vegan-friendly, so they can be enjoyed by everyone. And as a new recipe that I was trying, I get to add it to the list of recipes in my 50 in 15 Challenge.

Be forewarned: These bars are surprisingly addicting!

Peruvian Rice Pudding

Serves: 8-10

Time: 50-60 min

Difficulty: Medium

As previously mentioned in the post for Groundnut (Peanut) Stew, my wife and I received a newsletter for each of our children that we sponsor through Compassion International, which contained a recipe for a native dish that is typically eaten by the child. Still inspired by the recipes and having already made the Groundnut (Peanut) Stew (a dish from Northern Uganda where our sponsor child Stuart lives), it was time to try the recipe for Rice Pudding, a dish from Peru, where our other sponsor child Patricia lives. Admittedly, I’ve never made or even eaten Rice Pudding, so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. But to my delight, the final result was very tasty. Definitely a dish I wouldn’t mind making again.
