Breakfast Style

If you love salad and don't mind to have it every day during the summer, that is awesome. 

However, in my house, no matter what the outside temperature it is that day, hot dishes are literally a must on the dining table. If you are the one to cook, I know that you want to stay away from the stove top as much as you can.  Because by the time the dinner is ready, you are sweating like a pig already, right? 

Here is a list of breakfast style recipes.  Why did I pick them?  Breakfast recipes are mostly very easy, quick and cheap.  Many of them are the chop-and-drop recipes.  They work perfectly on a summer night:


Ham Scrambled Eggs


Mushroom Fried Eggs


Authentic French Toast


Peanut Butter French Toast


Spinach Pancakes


Pasta Recipes

Who doesn't love pasta?  It is filling and versatile.  But there are hot pasta dishes which take some time to man them in front of the stove.  Some needs to finish it in the oven which is the last thing you want to warm up your house with or without A/C (air conditioning) blasting.  Here are some very low maintenance pasta recipes for you:

I don't know about you.  I always get hungry in the middle of the morning or afternoon at work.  So, any salad leftover is always a cure for me during that period of time.  Talking about healthy snack, salad is definitely the best fit of this category.
