Apple Pie Braided Danish

My son started t-ball this week. I made the monumental mistake of telling him a month ago that t-ball was starting "soon". Apparently I have no idea how slowly time moves for a three-year-old. Daily he has looked at me with big hopeful brown eyes "Mommy? Do I have t-ball today?". Finally, I got to… Continue reading Apple Pie Braided Danish

Double Glazed Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake

I simply adore the bright fresh flavor of lemon. It just makes for happy food. I'm not really sure what the right label for this treat is. It's too sweet to be a bread, too light to be a true pound cake and too bread-like to be a cake. It's fabulous, whatever it is. Filled… Continue reading Double Glazed Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

I had some leftover cinnamon butter in my fridge from making Snickerdoodle Bread. Not enough to make a full recipe of anything really, so I've been pondering how to use it. Then I thought of something I saw a while ago (on Pinterest...yes, all good ideas come from there it seems). After eating these cinnamon… Continue reading Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Waffles

It's time for me to fess up. I adore oatmeal raisin cookies. I know they get no love and, when compared to chocolate chip they are the wallflower of cookies. But I love them. These waffles have all the flavor of plump sun-kissed raisins and hearty oats, AND you get to top them with butter… Continue reading Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Waffles

5 Minute Candy (Broiled Grapefruit)

Let me begin by asserting that I am NOT one of those skinny girls who thinks grapefruit is the perfect breakfast. I have never liked grapefruit and thought that people who ate it were crazy. <shudder> Sour and tart and just gross. I have tried several times to force myself into consuming this fruit, mostly… Continue reading 5 Minute Candy (Broiled Grapefruit)

Snickerdoodle Bread

A few weeks ago my grandmother gave me four mini loaf pans. She knows me so well. I've been trying to use them ever since so I can bring her something delicious as a thank you. Yes, that's what happens when you give me a baking item as a gift. I use it to make… Continue reading Snickerdoodle Bread

Cinnamon Toast Twists

Morning people, I salute you. However, I will never truly join your ranks. Mornings are just not my thing. I remembered that today as I dragged my sleepy self out of bed for a 6am yoga class. I'm hitting my stride with my couch-to-5K program and my muscles need a little extra stretching out. Since… Continue reading Cinnamon Toast Twists

Hot Cross Buns

These light, gently spiced buns are one of my favorite Easter week traditions. I make them every Good Friday, always bringing them to my mom for sharing with a  cup of tea. This recipe from America's Test Kitchen is a little time intensive, but not difficult and, it has never failed me.  You get big,… Continue reading Hot Cross Buns

Bread Pudding with Bailey’s Custard

Warning! This is quite possibly the best, most decadent, delicious and amazing food item I've ever created. It is over-the-top rich. I have convinced myself that if I only eat it once a year or so, I don't have to feel guilty about it. Sort of. I'm already dreaming of when I can make this… Continue reading Bread Pudding with Bailey’s Custard

A quick little recipe for today that I made recently for a tea party. It combines two of… Continue reading Blueberry Pancake Cupcakes
