Breakfasts of champions (and people like us)

I’m going to get straight to it. Because who’s got time to pussy-foot around? Not me, and probably not you.

I’ve had this new recipe for Mexican Bean Broth Soup in the hopper for quite some time. It’s kind of a go-to around here, using up leftovers that I might have in the fridge or freezer at any given time to whip up something quick and also (importantly!) delicious. Now that it’s got a pretty little photo, it’s finally ready for you. And if you (like me) made a pot of beans on a very cold day last week, this is what you can do with the rest of them.

I’ve also got 7 breakfast recipe ideas for you, that are tailor-made for busy winter mornings when you need to bundle everybody off to wherever with a good breakfast, for the eleventy-umpteenth time this winter, and really don’t need a bunch of dishes to do, thank you very much.

So here we go…

You can shop our spices, have a hot cup of cider or hot chocolate, and check out our growing Curious Cook’s Bookshop. Hope to see you soon!
