Fresh Tomato Tart with Zucchini & Thyme Infused Caramelized Onions

I’m not sure which part of this Fresh Tomato Tart I love the best! Is it the slices of garden fresh tomatoes and zucchini, the crunchy cornflake crust, or the layer of thyme-infused caramelized onions? 

But, I guess it really doesn’t matter which part is my favorite because all of these delicious elements are incorporated into this pretty presentation! Once you try it, you’ll also be hard pressed to decide which part is your favorite.

Prosciutto Wrapped Pineapple Spears

When I know I’m going to indulge in a decadent weekend brunch with all of my favorite foods; I like to start the meal off with a bit of pineapple. I’ve heard that pineapple helps melt away belly fat, but don’t quote me on that, because it’s not really true!

However, since I like to *THINK* it may be true I’ve convinced myself that it’s a great way to kick off #BrunchWeek and that maybe all those other calories to follow won’t actually count. Ha! Ha!

A hearty bowl of White Bean, Fennel & Italian Sausage Soup with Fennel, Onion and a glass of wine.

Delicioso White Bean, Fennel & Italian Sausage Soup

This recipe for Delicioso White Bean, Fennel & Italian Sausage Soup is one I found, and adapted, from Cooking Light Magazine. I didn’t change the recipe much, but I did add more fennel (because I love the light anise flavor of fennel a lot lately), and I also increased the amount of white beans from the original recipe, and I omitted the sage and parsley because I forgot to purchase them at the market. Doh!

Other than that, this recipe I’m sharing is pretty much just as it was written in the magazine. I DO NOT take credit for this recipe, but I do take credit for sharing it with you here on Kudos Kitchen in case you missed it in Cooking Light Magazine. I strongly urge you to make this soup. It’s delicious!

Protein Packed Quinoa Veggie Egg White Cups

For a while now I’ve been noticing that egg cups and eggs baked in muffin tins have become all the rage. It was after watching a particular video on Facebook that I decided to make my own.

The difference you may notice in mine is that I added quinoa to the mix because I’d had some leftover in the fridge and I thought it would be a tasty (and healthy) addition to an already tasty and healthy breakfast option.
