My Favorite Mug

My eats really aren't that interesting lately. I just moved back home and I'm getting ready to head off to Florida for the summer, so I don't have much time/desire to do a lot of shopping and cooking. Though they may be boring, they're always delicious.

My beloved yogurt bowl. In this mix:
- 1/3 cup soy yogurt
- 1/3 cup Nature's Path pumpkin flax granola
- 1 banana
- 2 tbsp coconut, 1 tbsp flax, oodles of cinnamon
- Blob of apricot jam

I had an INTENSE craving for apricot jam a couple days ago. Weird thing is, is that I've never had it before. In fact, I've never even had an apricot in any form before this jam. I must say, I LOVE it, especially mixed in with everything in this bowl. The flavors work super well together.

I used to think oatmeal was my favorite breakfast, but these yogurt bowls are rising to the top spot.

We all have our favorite coffee mug. Mine is an I Love Lucy mug that I bought in 1999 while on a day trip to Lake George. I remember finding it in a shop that exclusively sold Old Hollywood trinkets and novelties. While many kids grew up watching Barney or Sesame Street, I grew up with I Love Lucy and Old Hollywood films. To this day, I adore Old Hollywood. Drinking from this cup brings back a lot of memories and always brings a smile to my face. Lucy, I'm home!

It's old and faded and one of my favorite possessions.


  1. I've never had apricot jam. Funny that you're craving it after just trying it! Must be good. Where in FL are you going to be. I would LOVE to get to spend an entire summer there.

  2. Congrats on having FoodBuzz list you as a Featured Publisher.

    I know what you mean about the right coffee mug. I think it is part science, and part religion. The right mug can make or break a morning!

  3. It is definitely good! I'm pretty picky with my jams, too. I'll be in Orlando but I hope to make my rounds around the state. :)

  4. Thank you! :)

    I agree. I always have to use specific mugs or else it just doesn't feel right.

  5. hahah there is a woman at work who ALWAYS has apricot jam in the fridge and i'm so tempted to try it..maybe ill just ask her!

  6. I was never into yogurt before going vegan, but I made a "Soy Yogurt Bowl a-la Krystina" for breakfast and LOVED IT!!! Thanks for all your delicious recipes!!

  7. Definitely give it a shot Christina! It's pretty sweet on its own, but fab with other things.

  8. Jessica - I'm glad you liked it! My pleasure. :)
