Stuffed Potato Pancakes – Vegan, Vegetarian or Carnivorous!

This is something I would enjoy finding at a fast food restaurant — meat potato pancakes or also the vegetable potato pancakes — both would be nice of course.

Sauteed Veggies and Eggs

Serene Earth Recipes

Egg breakfasts are some of the simplest meals in the world, which can sometimes mean they lack creativity. Scrambled eggs are great and all, but sometimes you gotta mix it up, especially when vegetables are involved!

This recipe is really simple, with an easy veggie base that can be topped with a fried egg, scrambled together like a hash, or topped with just plain boiled eggs. You can also use this whole recipe as a breakfast taco and wrap it all up in a tortilla! As usual, I encourage you to be creative with my recipes, as I am with others 🙂

So without further ado…let us begin!

You will need:

  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • 1 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • bread of your choice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Serene Earth Recipes


Stuffed peppers is one of my favorite dishes. If I’m eating Mexican food, 99% I’m going to get a stuffed pepper. While the traditional stuffed pepper dish comes with meat and cheese, I thought of branching out a bit and trying a breakfast version.

In the winter I usually forego my typical smoothie breakfast, in favor of hot dishes. However, I miss the amount of veggies that my green smoothie would give me. In order to substitute for that, I’ve been experimenting with different ways to add more veggies to my hot breakfasts. Eating a stuffed pepper with eggs and vegetables, is a great option!

As usual, you can experiment with this recipe and try different veggies that work for you.  Along with tortillas as pictured in the photo, I would also highly recommend eating this with some avocado and salsa, or pico de gallo, it tastes delicious!

So without…

Braised Beef over Pappardelle


So this is for one of those long nights. Where you want to just be home. Its cold outside and have no place to be. This recipe is a labor of love and test to your patience as well. Braised beef is just a absolute treat. Whether you make it or its made for you its something special and you know someone really took some time out for you. Its a lot of things but its no quick 30 minute meal no matter what you do. For me I always braise my beef on the stove in a Dutch oven rather than a pressure cooker because I like the meat to be fork tender but not too tender that its dissolved into the sauce. I want to be able to see the beef and all the other wonderful things in the sauce. Now although this dish Is technically one pot…

Bloody Mary Shrimp Cocktail

To die for! I know it’s cheeky to most people today, but if there is anything both classical and antiquated at the table for that I always fall for for a cinch, it’s shrimp cocktail (and all the fixins’ like herbed marshed partaters and other things like those) …. I know this is someone else’s post and I am reblogging it so I really shouldn’t say too many personal things on it, but this is so heavenly (the recipe), I just had to give it my two cent laudation.


I often take request, because ya know why not. With request I never know what to expect and surprisingly I got a lot of request for shrimp cocktail. When I was thinking of what to do with this dish. I thought about the fact that bloody marys and shrimp cocktail have hit a huge wave in recent years in popularity. Now, people have gone to great lengths to enhance and do these big elaborate things with a bloody mary .I’m sure you’ve seen the ones that come with a whole sandwich, po’boy or even a chicken slapped on top. Seriously, if you’ve haven’t, google them they are wild. But not much has changed with the shrimp cocktail. So I thought lets make a bloody mary sauce to dunk in since it seems to be the obvious choice. And if you look at the bloody mary and traditional cocktail sauce the…

This is one of those recipes I wish I could go back to the night before and have again because it was so freaking delicious. I decided yesterday that I was going to have a lazy Sunday that includes consuming whatever I want, watching horror movies before I switch to sappy hallmark, minimal movement and little to no cooking. Well, the cooking part didn’t last long but I must say this cooking was minimal, fast and the cherry on top of a other wise perfect Sunday. Try these out for your next lazy day and let me know what you think!

iPhone Posted

I’m sorry about this especially after I put a special paragraph up about it but I have 2 phones & for some reason my iPhone won’t post to CPR (Crackling Pork Rinds) but only to BIA (Brut Imperial Antarctica).

So when you visit CPR you might visit also BIA from time to time, like weekly, because some of my phone posts will be there.

Banana Bread Pudding with Chocolate Chips

Simply Made Kitchen and Crafts

Our local market usually has a reduced-priced cart of day old bakery goods situated in the back of the store. I always make a point to stop to see what’s available to perhaps make a batch of fresh bread crumbs, garlic bread, or a bread casserole. Most times, I use the bread for a morning breakfast casserole that includes eggs, milk, sausage, vegetables and cheese. But today, I wanted to make something sweet to accompany a bit of vanilla bean ice cream that I had on hand. I also had a few bananas that were beyond their peak of ripeness.

This recipe is a keeper! Served warm with a few small scoops of ice cream, this has become a family favorite!

Banana Bread Pudding with Chocolate Chips

4 eggs

2 cups milk

1 cup sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

4 cups French bread, cubed
