Breakfast

Crab and Bacon Eggs Benedict

Eggs benedict is one of my favorite meals of all time. I know this is traditionally a brunch dish, but could eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I remember the first time I had eggs benedict. I was being set up on a blind date, and he invited me to brunch one Sunday morning […]

Rustic Blueberry Hand Pies with Lemon Glaze

I love using the term “rustic” when it comes to food. The chicken falls of the bone before I can slice it neatly? It’s okay. It’s rustic. The brownies get a little too crumbly? It’s okay. They’re rustic. The blueberry tarts explode in the oven? You got it – rustic! Not all of our food […]

Cream Cheese Peach Danish

Puff pastry is a great product. It is so quick and easy to use. Just thaw and it is ready to use in your recipe. Two sheets come in a standard package. I had a sheet in the freezer that needs to be used. I searched Pinterest and found a yummy-looking danish recipe on Lovely […]

Blueberry Honey Smoothie

I’m definitely on a blueberry kick. Last month, we posted a Berry Beer Cooler recipe for Secret Recipe Club, and today I’ve got a yummy blueberry smoothie recipe. I love pairing blueberries with honey for smoothies, not only because the flavors really shine through, but also because it’s a much healthier option. I love the […]

Quick Cinnamon Swirl Bread

I enjoy making quick breads. They aren’t as time consuming as a yeast bread and you have something wonderful when you are done. I was in a baking mood the other day and was searching for a new quick bread recipe. I came across a version of the cinnamon swirl bread on Something Swanky. Reading […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Banana muffins usually aren’t my thing. In fact, I really prefer banana flavor in three forms: Actual bananas Smoothies (like this one) Those little banana runt candies Seriously, who doesn’t like banana runts? Last year, I made some double chocolate banana scones that were pretty darn good, but most of the time, I leave the […]

Orange Chocolate Chip Scones with Vanilla-Orange Glaze

So here’s the thing… I already have a favorite scone recipe. I’ve been open to other types of scones, and have even made these double chocolate banana scones in the past. They were delicious. But nothing can hold a candle to the scone recipe I got from my friend’s grandmother. These come close. I’ll be […]

Fruity Pebbles Cookies

That’s right. Cookies with Fruity Pebbles in them. If you love this breakfast cereal, you’re going to love these cookies. Now I’m not a fan of fruity pebbles. In fact, I’m not sure if any of us Boyer ladies are a fan of them. But┬árecently a coworker posted these on my wall on Facebook begging […]

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 […]
