Creamy Rice Hot Cereal

This “Creamy Rice” Brown Rice Farina Hot Cereal is a favorite of mine anytime of the day. I eat this for breakfast, as a snack and even after dinner at times. I use almond milk but you can make this with whatever you like including water, coconut milk and just plain milk. As you’ve noticed, I like to keep things simple and easy so here’s to a quick and simple snack anytime of the day.


  • 1 ½ cups almond milk
  • ¼ cup Farina
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon 


1) Bring almond milk to a boil and add Farina, reducing heat to low. Cook for about 5-8 minutes while stirring.

2) Pour contents into bowl, add butter, honey, sprinkle cinnamon on top and serve.

Serves 1.


Frittata with Tomatoes and Scallions

The first thing I learned how to cook were eggs. Once I got this down I tried a bunch of different variations with eggs. That’s all I knew how to cook when I was a kid but it was exciting because I got to use different ingredients every time to change it up.

I’ve come a long way since then but that still happens with me with new recipes that I’ve never cooked before. I’m always looking to change a traditional recipe by mixing it up with different ingredients.

I like eggs because they are so versatile…you can cook them so many ways and you can put anything you want in them.

When I have a few people over at my house for breakfast and one person wants sunny side up, the other scrambled and someone else a frittata, I know I can make it work. Eggs are a crowd pleaser all around.

How do you like to eat your eggs?

Frittata with Tomatoes and Scallions

  • ½ stick of butter

Whisk the eggs, salt and pepper in a bowl and set aside. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the tomatoes and sauté until tender. Raise the heat to medium-high and add the scallions, parsley and sauté. Pour the egg mixture over and cook for a few minutes until the eggs start to set. Reduce heat and cook until the frittata is set. Place cover on and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Using a spatula, loosen the frittata from skillet and slide the frittata onto a plate.
