I’m not sure why but, this time of year I really, really need breakfast food. Need it. Hearty stuff, too. Not just the fruit and yogurt I eat the rest of the year but waffles and omelets and potatoes and oatmeal. Stuff that weighs you down and fills you up all day.So this weekend we had our second annual waffle breakfast. Very fun and an easy way to entertain. Just borrow a couple of extra waffle makers from party guests and set out some waffle batter and imaginative topping. The rest takes care of itself. Let everyone loose in the kitchen and they cook their own breakfast while you sit back and enjoy your coffee! Ahhhh. . .I love to entertain like this! Read the rest of this entry

Zucchini Avocado Streusel Muffins
I usually post a weekly recipe on Mondays. Sorry I missed you this week. You get a Wednesday recipe instead.
I have been sick. The fall crud got a hold of our household and wouldn’t let go for awhile. Tim and I have both been battling it. We were passing it back and forth.
Banana Peanut Butter Muffins
Several things happened last week. My other dog had surgery, I went to a drive in movie, and I made muffins. Exciting life, eh?
That’s pretty much it. These 3 things occupied all my time and thoughts.
Breakfast Summer Rolls
It’s winter. I know this because we finally got some snow here in MI. It was lovely and now we can move on to summer. Spring is nice too but some summer heat is welcome now.
If I can’t have summer heat then I’ll make do with summer rolls. They are crisp and fresh and very adaptable.
These aren’t hard to make. HOWEVER, they will take you some time to put together. There are sort of a lot of steps here. . .ok not sort of. . . there are absolutely a lot of steps involved in making these. They are not speedy. But they aren’t hard. . .I know you can do it!
Baked Banana Pineapple Oatmeal
Back to oatmeal today. I do love the oats.
When I made this the first time it was not delicious. I had the wrong proportion or something and I was not impressed. I tweaked the recipe and came up with this version which was yummy so I thought I would share it with you.
I love granola. I think I get it from my dad.
Especially when I make it myself and control the ingredients.
Mini Baked Donuts
Happy Valentine’s Day! (Tim, I like you!! xoxo!!)
Time to talk about donuts. What would a month of breakfast be without donuts?
These are mini and baked so no guilt, right? I got this pan on sale a few weeks ago and have been anxious to try it. Read the rest of this entry
Brown Sugar and Almond Oatcakes
February is going to be a month of breakfast. Yup. . .I am going to focus on only breakfast blogging. Surprising because for about the first 30+ years of my life I didn’t really eat breakfast. Not that I didn’t like a good breakfast from time to time (or a sausage McMuffin to soak up a few to many cocktails) but I was busy and didn’t make time for morning food. Plus eating before noon made me feel yucky.
In my old (healthier) age, all that has changed. I always eat breakfast now. Usually nothing too giant. I’m not downing plates full of pancakes and sausage every morning, but some sort of sustenance in the a.m. is a good thing. Read the rest of this entry
Pumpkin Biscuits with Orange Honey Butter
It’s almost Thanksgiving! Can you believe this year is almost over? And can you believe Christmas is right around the corner? Yikes. . .it’s enough to make me want a warm pumpkin biscuit slathered in orange honey butter.
These are part of Thanksgiving dinner in my world this year. They are soft and delicate and the butter is delicious. It’s been a few years since pumpkin biscuits were on the holiday menu so this year I thought it was time to revisit them.
