The real world has beckoned me – I have a real job now. And a real job calls for lots and lots of time, so I apologize for my absence from Sugar-Free Fairy for the past 6 weeks. I wanted to be sure to give myself plenty of time to settle in, and as such, have been jetted off to New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Grand Rapids, and Ann Arbor.
I am having a bit too much fun.
But alas, no matter where in the world my travels take me, I have dearly missed my blog and all of its fans. I always am toying with new ideas for the site, and it pains me that I have not given it the attention that it deserves.
So I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes with you today – Spicy Artichoke Scramble – to hopefully make up for the lost time. I’ve actually turned full Paleo since taking the photos of this dish, so I don’t use the cheese anymore, but I invite you to add cheese galore if your diet permits. It’s delicious either way.
This recipe was inspired by my favorite breakfast dish from a little brunch restaurant by the beach in San Diego. They use artichokes and jack cheese, but I had to jazz it up with the onions, basil, and a little kick.
I do love my hot sauce.
(So much so that it gets is own photo.)
Question of the Day:What was your first real job? What is the most important thing you learned on the job?
I’d say my first “real” job was being a resident assistant in college. It was a round-the-clock kind of gig and I loved it. I learned so much – the most important thing being how to think on my feet and be ready for anything that may come my way. Expect the unexpected and always keep calm.
What about you?
