Literary Lunch – Kale and Turkey Casserole

Literary Lunch – Kale and Turkey Casserole

Ah, another delicious lunch to pair with my current reads. I absolutely am loving sharing these recipes with you. Today’s lunch is from a recipe I found on NomNomPaleo that combines all my favorite Italian flavors into one dish. The best part? It’s Whole30 compliant, dairy-free, and gluten-free because I’m a basic bitch like that.

I love that this recipe doesn’t have any grains in it. I switched out the Italian sausage for ground turkey mostly because I didn’t have sausage in the house. Pair it with a little side salad or get yourself some bread to enjoy this lovely feast.

Here’s the original NomNomPaleo recipe.

I’ve adapted it a little bit for my own tastes and the results feel like you’re eating a lavish quiche. The eggs help bind all the ingredients together, but in the future I’m going to cut back on the egg. It doesn’t taste too eggy, but I just want the other ingredients to shine and the egg to act more like a binder.

Still a successful lunch! Now I’ve got some blog articles to write.


My Favorite Snacks While Reading

My Favorite Snacks While Reading

When it comes to reading, it’s always important to have the essentials by your side. You’ll need some water for hydration and tea or coffee for the hygge effect. Pillows and blankets for warmth (or comfort if you’re me) and candles because why not?

But one thing I always also remember to include is a snack. I’m a huge fan of snacking while reading. I feel like my hands need to shovel my feelings into my mouth while I’m reading through a particularly difficult passage.

However, not all snacks are created equal and if you’re reading a book the one thing you don’t want to do is stain or crumb up your pages with your chocolate mousse or Oreo cookies.

So here’s some of the snacks I prefer to eat (with a lot of photos I found while digging through my photo gallery):

Reading & Eating: The Wedding Date and Blueberry Pancakes

Reading & Eating: The Wedding Date and Blueberry Pancakes

“Good Lord, why have you never taken me to that place before?” Alexa asked him. “I’ve never had pancakes that good.”

I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of reading and eating. Whether it’s a small snack or a full on meal, I can always be found with a book in hand and a fork in the other.

So I wanted to share some of the culinary foods I love to make for my reads. Have you ever wanted to eat what your character was eating? Does the thought of something scrumptious in your book stir your cravings? Well, this is exactly what I want to do in this series.
