Z is for: Zucchini Egg Muffins with Hood Cottage Cheese

Whenever I'm trying to do a healthy re-set (which I'm desperately in need of at the moment), I try to plan out my breakfasts ahead of time and prep them at the beginning of the week if possible.

This really sets you up for success. It's hard to eat something unhealthy for breakfast (or skip the meal altogether) when you have something delicious already made and sitting in the fridge waiting for you saying "Eat me!"

And that, my friends, is where these delightful little egg muffins come into play. They are high in protein and packed with vegetables but still have enough cheese and flavor to make them something you actually want to reach for in the mornings.

Enough so... that not only do I recommend these for easy weekday grab-and-go breakfasts, but I would also whole-heartedly suggest these for a brunch gathering because they are already portioned out and easy for guests to eat. Whichever you decide to use these for... definitely make them ASAP!

Y is for: Yountville {the ultimate Napa Wine & Wedding Weekend}

I love weddings.

No matter what the setting, seeing my friends and family bring all of their most cherished people together in one spot to celebrate their love is a really beautiful thing.

That said, I really love weddings when my friends pick vacation destinations like Napa Valley to tie the knot.

I found myself at the latter situation recently when our friends Matthew and Sarah decided to wed just outside Yountville, CA... one of my favorite wine country destinations.

First of all, the entire town smells like you are permanently in a day spa. Notes of Jasmine and lavender float through the air, and it's really hard not to be in a zen mood at all times. That state of being is of course enhanced by the abundance of world class dining and wine tasting, making it pretty much the perfect weekend getaway. Let this blog post serve as your “to-do” list to enjoy it to the fullest.
