Gour-Maybe? Guest Blogger - Jennie Weizel - With Homemade Breakfast Treats!

Chocolate Banana Bread! Notice artsy pics - way to go Weizel!

Is that Chobani? Wait, nevermind, I made it!

Whole Foods $7.99 a pound? I don't think so! Make it in your very own kitchen!

Hi Gour-maybe readers, I am excited to have friend and former co-worker (we don't really hate her for leaving) Jennie Weizel to talk about our favorite meal of the day: breakfast. Among many things including food, sarcasm, and good hair days, Jennie and I share a love of hobbies usually loved by the elderly like jam-making, and we are A-ok with that! Below she shares links to her favorite homemade breakfast staples: Greek Yogurt, Granola, Strawberry Jam, and Chocolate Banana Bread. Perfect to make big batch, and keep on hand. We can pretty much guarantee we'd make a parfait!  Click on the links for her inspiration and follow her on Twitter . Let's hear from the lady herself:

"Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I don’t understand you people who don’t eat anything until lunch. That’s crazy talk! Maybe when you try these recipes you will change your non-eating breakfast ways. These recipes are extremely simple and I usually make them ahead of time on a Sunday evening while watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians    - the news - this way each morning I can just grab it and go.
You might be thinking, “I could buy all of these things she is making herself” and you definitely could—but then you couldn’t brag to all your foodie friends that you MADE YOUR OWN GREEK YOGURT! I will just leave it at that. (we couldn't agree more! Go for the foodie bragging rights!)
The Greek Yogurt and Granola are great paired together and I always enjoy the Chocolate Banana Bread with my cup of coffee.
One of my favorite things to make is Ina Garten’s Strawberry Jam (Gour-Maybe also secretly desires to BE Ina Garten) recipe and it will take your breakfast or PB&J to a whole new level. Ina always makes me want to hop on the next flight to The Hamptons. It is a little bit more of a time intensive recipe but it’s worth the wait. After all, who doesn’t like sugar, Cointreau, and fresh fruit?

We heart you JW! Come blog on Gour-Maybe anytime!!!
