Steak and Egg Mini Quiches #BrunchWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone. I’m a crust girl. And by that, I mean, I love mini pies and tarts because you get more crust than you do with a regular […]

Welcome to #BrunchWeek 2018 hosted by Love and Confections and A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures! Here at The PinterTest Kitchen, we host #CookoutWeek every June and #Choctoberfest every October, but this year, I wanted to participate in a fun themed week hosted by other bloggers.

Fiesta Eggs Benedict

Okay, here’s something that is a little embarrassing to admit… I am not a super adventurous eater. I try to make myself try out new foods, because I am often very happy I did so, but my natural inclination is to eat what I already know I like. I know, I know… I’m a food […]

Strawberry and Fig Jam Crescents

After my recipe for Cardamom Date Scones was such a smashing success in this house, I’ve been itching to use cardamom in more recipes. I’m on a cardamom kick! Which is not as crazy as some of the other kicks I’ve been on. It’s about a 7 out of 10 on the “Allison’s Ingredient Kicks” […]

Cardamom Date Scones

I think I have a scone problem. I just can’t resist them! I’ve never met a scone I didn’t like. My favorite buttermilk scones are perfect with bits of fruit and chocolate in them, and they are extremely moist. But sometimes, you want a crumbier, dryer scone that is perfect for dunking in tea or […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
