Something I took for granted for the past 26 years. No joke. Oh velvety, buttery goodness that made the perfect “sauce” for my toast — how I missed thee.
See, runny eggs were a huge no-no throughout pregnancy. Apparently the risks of eating uncooked eggs do not favor well with developing fetuses. Who knew?!
So you KNOW what I’ve now been eating on the reg…
Come to Mama…
I’ve found runny eggs are enjoyed best salted, with buttered toast (Thanks to Foodbuzz for the amazing Nature’s Path bread! – so fresh and delish!)
So Mr. Scramble, while you’ve been a nice stand-in these past 9 months, I’m so over you. It’s not me — it’s you
How do you like YOUR eggs? Poached? Scrambled? Sunny side? Over easy? TELL ME!
Of course on our Babymoon, we wanted to make sure we got things started off right, so the Mister researched some stellar breakfast joints to lock in the day’s success.
The first on our list? Northstar Cafe.
The Northstar Cafe has just a few locations throughout Columbus, one of which located directly across from our hotel at Easton Town Center.
The Northstar Cafe is known for its incredible breakfasts and freshly baked items that are cooked in-house each morning. The scones looked OUT OF THIS WORLD. But I resisted. (Didn’t wanna be a glutton, and I figured my body could only handle so many near-god experiences).
I settled on the homemade granola with greek yogurt and fruit.
Did I say settle?
This granola is nothing short of amazing. In fact, I hear that little magical gnomes whip it up every morning, which is why Northstar is unable to share the recipe (because you know I’ve looked into it).
The Mister ordered an egg and sausage sandwich on a homemade biscuit.
I don’t think he looked at me for 238.4 seconds — exactly how long it took him to gobble up this sandwich.
I’ll be back later with another fun breakfast joint and a run-in with a local (but nationally recognized) celeb!
Which breakfast would you have chosen? My sweet treat or the Mister’s savory sammie?
Good morning, friends!

This morning I was feeling extra pumpkified and I knew I needed to take advantage of the LIBBY’S I had sitting in my cabinet (I stocked up last week!)
I threw together a fantastic pumpkin smoothie that you all need to make for yourselves STAT. In addition to being completely delicious, this smoothie is incredibly nutritious!
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt (I used Stonyfield!)
- 1/2 cup skim or soy milk
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup ice
Throw it all in the blender and mix it up!
The fun placemat is optional, although highly recommended
