Shakshuka (eggs poached in tomato sauce)


Oof. So I just checked the date of my last post…..April 19th. That is FOUR MONTHS.


Not only is that depressing that I haven’t been able to chat with you all for that long – but that is exactly how long I’ve been living off of frozen chicken nuggets, Potbelly’s, and anything else I can microwave and shove in my face within 6 minutes.


There is laundry exploding out of my closet. I have 2 dish detergent pods left and it will be a miracle if I remember to stop at Walgreens and buy another container. I eat dinner on kitchen stools that I built backwards.


Also I got lost in a parking garage for 35 minutes last week. It took me 20 minutes to even get close enough for the panic button to beep.

Readers. My life is in shambles.


So when all else fails, EAT.


I’ve missed sharing recipes with you all so much and couldn’t think of a better way to debut my return to sanity with this Shakshuka recipe! My kitchen is my breath of fresh air – when life gets busy there is no other place I want to be.


This dish is so incredibly comforting. Think bubbling tomato sauce with savory herbs and garlic, topped with runny poached eggs and finished with fresh cilantro. This is anytime food – breakfast, dinner, 2 am. Throw it over some rice or mix up with vegetables with whatever you have in the fridge.


Bon appetit!

  4. OMGosh girl, I’ve missed you. I’m so happy you’re back. You are back, right? :) And your life sounds a lot like mine too, hehe.

    And what a gorgeous debut. I want to pop those eggs and mix the sweet yolk in. Love tomato-based dinners. Looks delicious. Not sure if I could take the jalapeños though. I’m a wuss with spice! :lol:

      Haha so am I! It’s super mild, I promise :) And happy to know I’m not alone in the craziness! Oof.

  5. Not frozen chicken nuggets!!! You poor thing. I’ve totally missed you! This meal looks incredibly comforting and also super easy. It sounds like I’m not the only one who could use a little more of that in my life! My husband is currently working in Chicago…when I come visit, I’ll bring you something to brighten your day!

  6. Welcome back! This is one delicious looking meal. That bubbly sauce is calling my name. Hey, sometimes life gets hectic. For me, eating always helps.
