French Toast with Spiced Pears

I was given a big bag of pears from my mom last week from the bounty of her orchard. Ok, it's not a real orchard, just a few trees in her yard. But my mom's green thumb is absurd. She's like the plant whisperer. There's so much fruit on her trees, you'd think she had… Continue reading French Toast with Spiced Pears

Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

In the past several weeks I made two monumentally bad choices. Probably more, but these two will probably haunt me the rest of my life. The first mistake was trying salt n' pepper pistachios for the first time. Please hold your judgement until you find out the other thing I've never had before. Pistachios pale… Continue reading Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Glazed Cranberry Orange Muffins

I made these muffins because I was feeling too lazy to make my famous scones, but wanted a similar kind of breakfast item to bring with us camping. I hate being lazy. Especially when preparing for camping. My scones aren't even really hard, just more difficult than dumping everything in a bowl, then into a… Continue reading Glazed Cranberry Orange Muffins

Everything But The Kitchen Sink Breakfast Bake

I love a good breakfast bake. It's so adaptable. You can put just about everything in them. This is my base recipe for a perfectly filling and delicious morning meal. I've made it so many times I can practically do it in my sleep. Which is good, since I'm always throwing it together first thing… Continue reading Everything But The Kitchen Sink Breakfast Bake

Wonderful Waffles

It was National Waffle Day last week and so (of course) I had to make waffles. This recipe has been tweaked a ton from the original to produce light fluffy waffles that are a little crisp on the outside and perfectly warm and soft on the inside. It's my favorite waffle recipe and is requested… Continue reading Wonderful Waffles

Country Blueberry Monkey Bread

Monkey bread is the devil. I cannot resist it. I especially enjoy a new spin on it, like adding some kind of new flavor to the delicious combo of cinnamon sugar and buttery goodness.  I can more readily call it breakfast if it includes fruit which makes this blueberry filled bread perfect for supporting my… Continue reading Country Blueberry Monkey Bread

Bakerlady’s Best of Blueberries

I started thinking about blueberries after my 6th friend posted on Facebook that they were blueberry picking. No joke. Who knew that all the cool kids go blueberry picking in August? Actually, come to think of it, a few weeks ago when my sister watched my munchkins, she took them out to harvest some blueberries… Continue reading Bakerlady’s Best of Blueberries

Captain Hook’s Favorite Breakfast

My kids discovered a new joke this week. I've heard it about 100 times in the past few days. It goes like this: Just in case you didn't catch that, here's the dialogue. Madison: What is Captain Hook's favorite kind of breakfast? Donovan: I dunno. Madison: Peter Pan-cakes! <insert hilarious laughter here> Oh yes, the… Continue reading Captain Hook’s Favorite Breakfast

French Toast Muffins

I'm always on the lookout for ways to eat dessert for breakfast. These delightful little muffins have perfectly light flavor and a melt in your mouth oh-my-goodness-this-is-so-amazing texture that's to die for. What would you call a dessert that you pass off as breakfast? I mean, besides the obvious...pie. Bressert? Deskfast? Although these are called… Continue reading French Toast Muffins

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bars

My nieces came over unexpectedly today. My gluten/dairy free sweet lovelies. I had just pulled a Blueberries & Cream Pie out of the oven...which, (of course) they cannot eat. It's absolutely unacceptable for my sweet girls to come over to Auntie's house and not get a treat. But what to make? I remembered seeing this… Continue reading Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bars
