Santana made these when we watched the Formula 1 race at their house a few weeks back and Ben got the recipe from her since we both enjoyed them so much.
They’re super easy to make and so far everyone I know who’s tried them can’t get enough.
We had leftover thyme from when we had Sierra and her family over for a BBQ so I decided to make a quick lunch/snack for Ben and I on Sunday.
Olive oil to grease the pan
Muffin pan to cook in
Prosciutto (12 slices or ~6oz.)
Eggs (12 count)
Gruyère cheese (1 cup grated)
Heavy whipping cream (1/4 cup)
1 teaspoon chopped thyme
Salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 365(F) degrees. Then start by lining the muffin pan with olive oil. For this batch I used half the amount of prosciutto (not as recommended because they don’t keep their shape as well nor have the eye appeal) to line the pan like a cupcake wrapper.
Then grab a tablespoon heaped with Gruyère cheese and drop into each cup. Crack an egg into each (without breaking the yolk) and then drizzle with roughly a tablespoon of heavy whipping cream. Top each cup with a sprinkle of thyme as well as salt and pepper.
Pop them into the oven for ~15 min or until set (adjust time depending on how you want the yolk cooked). Then take them out and let them cool. I haven’t had an issue letting them cool in the muffin pan but I’m sure a wire rack is optimal.
Ben’s off work today, which isn’t the usual so we decided to go out for brunch. We packed up little lady and drove down to Main St. in Norman. I let Ben decide between Neighborhood Jam and Syrup and he chose the latter!
Tove enjoyed her banana stick while mom and dad got to eat. I ordered the home sweet homa with crunchy French toast 🤤.
If you’re into sweets, Syrup is definitely the brunch you’re looking for they have so many different waffle, pancake, and French toast options. Plus their coffee menu is LEGIT as well.
Tuesday marks the end of my maternity leave so before starting work again I decided to take a trip to Dallas.
Ben and I are so lucky as parents, Tove doesn’t mind her car seat at all and she’s already a socialite at restaurants. She’s never been fussy or even attempted to make a scene so we decided to meet Taylor and her fiancé Blake for dinner on Saturday night at a restaurant called Haywire. It’s located at Legacy West in Plano and serves new American cuisine.
We had an early reservation and if the hostess hadn’t left us standing off to the side for 14 minutes while our table was ready I would have nothing but positive things to say about our experience. Taylor had booked the reservation and got us a perfect table upstairs on the patio overlooking the stage/courtyard area. We got lucky with the weather as well, so I wasn’t all hot and bothered 😅
We started with the “chefs 4” which included mini Elk tacos, queso, giant onion rings, and fried tomatoes. All of which was delicious. I’m normally not a huge fan of onion rings but man they were good.
For the main I got a lighter fare, the grilled Caesar salad and a side but Ben went for a bone in 18oz steak and he was VERY pleased with how it turned out. He was even picking the meat from the bone once he was ‘done’ eating 😅.
Next time I’m getting the snapper. Blake got it and it looked so good. Oh and definitely try the Mac and cheese at Haywire, it’s flavorful and the texture is on point.
I got spoiled rotten this past weekend by my parents who came to visit. They cleaned our entire home AND my mom cooked a bunch of meals for our freezer meaning we can eat easily once baby girl arrives. Dad also helped Ben put the bases in both cars for the car seat. I feel like we are ready for her to come into the world any day now. Luckily we reserved Sunday for my Pappa!
We ate brunch at Cafe Cuvée in the Ambassador hotel in Midtown. Luckily they could squeeze us in because my dad had accidentally made the reservation for Monday morning.
Good service. Good atmosphere. I would definitely go back to eat here! Ito and I actually stayed at the Ambassador hotel for my birthday last year but we ordered champagne room service from Cafe Cuvée then instead 😝
Unfortunately my Mamma wasn’t feeling good, like at all, but I love this photo Ben snapped of my Pappa and I outside the Ambassador hotel. 🥰💕
Next year’s Father’s Day we will be celebrating Ben being a father & amy dad being a grandfather!
I haven’t had too many opportunities to explore OKC yet but I will say my favorite patio bar so far has got to be Social Capital across from Scissortail Park. If you enjoy craft beer or great views then this place is a must visit!
My mom and I discovered Rose Wine Water on one of her first visits to OKC, and now it’s a must have. It’s a rose wine mixed with water and it’s refreshing as heck! Ben and I abstained from drinking, le duh for me, but we sure did drink up the atmosphere.
Now that the weather is getting warmer it feels even better to be able to enjoy being outside, even it’s still windy in OKC all the time. Plus those views of Devon Tower are GORGEOUS as the sun begins to set.
Social Capital has two levels, the inside downstairs is a bit too loud for my liking but if you want food- that’s where it’s at. Their nachos always go down a treat. There’s plenty of seating downstairs outside; I feel like that’s where most families tend to stay.
Then there’s the rooftop patio bar, me likey! It has a gorgeous view of Scissortail Park, which is literally one of my favorite parts of OKC. Bonus- there’s a dog park at Scissortail Park as well if you need to tire out your pup before visiting Social Capital.
