Caprese Tuna Salad Stuffed Tomatoes

Happy Friday, My Cooking Spot readers!!

I’m super excited to be a new contributor for My Cooking Spot, and I have a delicious recipe to share that’s perfect for a warm summer day.

It requires absolutely no cooking and takes less than 10 minutes and very little culinary ability to whip up.

While I love living in New Orleans – the food, the location, the fun, the list goes on… – the weather can be quite warm {read: hot & humid}. Don’t take this as a complaint though; I love the hot weather! I’d take a 100+ degree heat index any day over anything below 40 in a heart beat.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins // Erin Skinner from The Speckled Palate for My Cooking Spot

As someone who was born and raised in the South, I know and love blueberries, especially when they’re in season during the summer months. And since I have lived my entire life in the South, though some will disagree that Texas is not the South, I’ve picked up some wonderful blueberry-centric recipes over the years…

Quick Gluten Free Breakfast – Egg on a Pesto Filled Portabella

unnamed 7

All right, I am going to bring it up: New Years Resolutions.  There I said it.  I’ll let it sit for a few moments…. Okay now that we got the awkward part out of the way let’s get down to it.  I know you want to ignore them and just give up but come on! Let’s dust them off and see what our batting average is this April!  I have more than a few that I am still pretty far away from, but one that I have been really enjoying is the challenge of eating breakfast.   Now I used to live in Manhattan and breakfast was a cup of coffee (if I was lucky) and for a really special day I would have a yogurt.   But this year my health is of the essence which makes getting a healthy and protein/veggie rich start to my day even more imperative.

Wanting to get a good start to your day with breakfast is all well-and-good but what about the time! This is something I battle with on the daily.  I have so much to get done in the morning before I jet to the office.  So lately, I have been wracking my brain to think of grain free, quick, delicious breakfast ideas.  Because, let me tell you, if it isn’t tasty, it really doesn’t matter how healthy or quick it is.

Biscuits & Sausage Gravy

Hey y’all, its Madison from Wetherills Say I Do!  You can check out some of my older posts on My Cooking Spot here and here. I’d love for you to stop by my blog and check it out. I talk about things like marriage & weddings, recipes and DIY projects I love, and lessons learned in general.
What is your favorite meal of the day? Hands down mine is breakfast. I sometimes have a difficult time with breakfast though, because I don’t really eat eggs. When I was younger they made me sick to my stomach, so I’ve never really developed a taste for them. So when I stumble upon an amazing recipe for breakfast, I cherish it! 
This recipe originally comes from Steven’s dad. I posted a recipe for a Strawberry Jam Loaf from Steven’s aunt earlier, what can I say, I love family recipes! Steven’s dad made this recipe for us a few years ago. Before he made this recipe for us I had never really tried biscuits and gravy before. But man, I’m hooked now. One of the biggest benefits to this recipe is that it makes quite a bit, but sausage gravy freezes incredibly well, so you’re able to have it for a long time.
