Double Chocolate Banana Scones

I love a warm scone and tall glass of iced coffee in the morning. And trust me, I don’t love much in the morning. Until about an hour after I wake up, I speak more in growls and grunts than actual sentences, unlike my boyfriend and mother who both have the annoying gene that causes […]

The Easiest Pain Au Chocolat Recipe in the Entire World

I’m pretty sure “pain au chocolat” is French for “I’m going to be in pain if I don’t have another chocolate croissants.” Or possibly, “You’re going to be in pain if I don’t get another chocolate croissant.” My French might be a little rusty. In any case, the glorious pain au chocolat is hands down […]

Mini Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins: Mmm…Zesty

I love recipes that make my life a little…zesty. You know, that unexpected zing… Okay, my life might be a little sad that I’m this excited over a muffin recipe, but I LOVE MUFFINS. Breakfast pastries in general, actually. My kingdom for a perfect chocolate croissant. If anyone has the perfect chocolate croissant recipe, please […]

Apple Pear Scones

Every home chef has to have at least a couple of recipes up their sleeve that never fail to impress. We become known for these recipes, and when all else fails, we can whip up a batch and all else is forgiven, no matter how crispy and black dinner may be. For me, that “up […]

Chunky Applesauce Cinnamon Pancakes

I was looking around for something different to make for breakfast that didn’t involve a whole lot of extra ingredients and time. Sometimes you get sick of the usual eggs, toast or cereal. I came across a Taste of Home recipe for Cinnamon Applesauce Pancakes, which I pinned. It looked simple to make and had […]

Chicks In A Nest

Breakfast is a very important part of the day. Living and working in the country you need something that sticks to the ribs. Cereal is filling but it’s gone in an hour and you’re hungry again. Eggs have protein and they keep you from getting hungry. A few months ago I made the Hoidy-Toidy Ham […]

Blueberry Compote for Perfect Blueberry Pancakes

Blueberry pancakes at home usually means a handful of berries in the batter. At least, that’s what I’ve always done. But go out to IHOP or any other pancake joint and blueberry pancakes are much fancier. There are usually blueberries in the batter, but you also get this gooey, sugary, delicious compote of blueberries on […]

Beer Mimosas (Because We’re Classy Like That)

I do not understand people who say they don’t like wine, much in the same way I don’t understand people who say they don’t like cheese or chocolate or cats. But some people just aren’t into it, I guess. So while the rest of us are drinking mimosas, what are they going to drink? A […]

Hoity-Toity Ham and Egg Cups

If you need a delicious lower cholesterol idea for breakfast or brunch, the ham and egg cups are the recipe for you. They look cute and it doesn’t take a lot of extra time. When my daughter Allison lived in northern Virginia, she wasn’t far from the city of Arlington which is apparently where all […]

Snickerdoodle Muffins That Make You Go Mmm…

Exciting news readers! I recently turned one of my biggest freelance clients into a full time position within the company! Now I have to wake up at a normal time every weekday (okay, that’s not so exciting), put on my big girl pants, and go off to work. But wait! Doesn’t this mean you don’t […]

Quick and Easy Mini Cinnamon Rolls

These mini cinnamon rolls are quick and easy to make for breakfast, for a snack or a quick dessert. You should get 2 tubes of crescent rolls right away. I would make a double batch right away because they will not last. This recipe is a version I pinned from Michael Wurm, Jr. who pinned […]

Cinnamon Cake Mix Waffles with Warm Cinnamon Roll Icing

I think waffles got me through the the start of my freshman year of college. No joke. The dining hall had a self-serve waffle station that was open regardless of whether it was actually¬†breakfast time¬†or not. During that awkward first week of not knowing anyone, a group of girls and I who shared several classes […]

Raspberry Coffeecake Muffins

These muffins are the best muffins ever. I’ve tried a lot of recipes for muffins and you can throw most of them away. This recipe makes muffins that are moist and flavorful, and you can customize them for your family. I pinned a version of this recipe from Lori Manning. This was originally a Barefoot […]
