Pistachio Chai Muffins

April 19, 2012 Breakfast

I’ve had my eye on this recipe for a while. I found it in Cooking Light magazine, tabbed it and then forgot to make it. Typical. My Cooking Light magazine collection is a disaster. Most of the pages are ripped, stained or scribbled on. As are all my other cooking magazines and some of my [...]

Spiced Sour Cream Coffee Cake

April 12, 2012 Breakfast

   I haven’t made coffee cake in ages. I actually haven’t thought of coffee cake in ages. When I was young, my dad made coffee cake regularly on the weekends. He’d pull a well-worn box of Bisquick from the cabinet, add a splash of milk, a dash of cinnamon and, before long, our whole house [...]

Peanut Butter, Banana and Honey Road Cake

April 2, 2012 Breakfast

This cake is delicious for breakfast or a snack. It’s also perfect for commuting and road trips. You can eat it with your fingers or a fork. It’s decently healthy, almost vegan (if there is such a thing), and my husband, who is not a fan of whole wheat baked goods, loves it. I know [...]

Black Bean and Red Pepper Breakfast Burrito

March 28, 2012 Breakfast

Most days I am not a breakfast person. I’m fine with a cup of coffee and a granola bar or a piece of toast. I’m just not into breakfast (unless someone puts a muffin or donut in front of my face in which case I can conjure an appetite faster than you can blink). But [...]

Irish Potato- Parsnip Cakes

March 21, 2012 Breakfast

I made these beauties last weekend on St. Patty’s Day. They were gorgeous with spicy Coleman’s mustard and a pint of Guinness. I be they’d be even better at brunch with a bloody or a mimosa. These potato cakes are similar to latkes, with the addition of parsnips. What is a parsnip, you ask? It’s [...]

Cheesy Grits Casserole

March 18, 2012 Breakfast

Feeling hung over after all those pints of Guinness yesterday? If so, you’ll need some home cooked comfort food to make it all better. This cheesy grits casserole will set you straight. We ate this the morning after our wedding and it definitely saved the day! After a long night of drinking and dancing, these [...]

Ellen’s Banana Nut Bread

March 7, 2012 Breakfast

My husband had been begging me for weeks to make his mother’s banana nut bread recipe. He proclaimed it to be the best ever. I finally got around to some baking last week and added this to the list. I’m so glad I did. Although simple, this was by far the best banana bread I’ve [...]

Meyer Lemon, Olive Oil, and Cornmeal Snack Cake

January 25, 2012 Breakfast

‘Tis the season for Meyer lemons and so I set out to make a lemon coffee cake. At first, I planned on one infused with rosemary, but all the recipes I found were crazy complicated and time consuming. I don’t have that kind of patience in the morning. So, I got out my mixing bowls [...]

Lightened-up Gingerbread

January 11, 2012 Breakfast

I feel as though I’ve been doing a ton of baking lately. Every weekend, I find myself in the kitchen, up to my elbows in flour, egg, and sugar. Don’t even ask about the state of my favorite apron. I’ve been trying little experiments to make goodies without sugar, or gluten- free, or vegan. But [...]

English Scones with Raisins

January 4, 2012 Breakfast

Since our recent adventures in London, my husband and I have become shamefully obsessed with British culture. I’m not kidding. I’m watching BBC like it’s my job- Downton Abbey, anyone? (And let’s not forget about Upstairs Downstairs, Bleak House, and Victorian Farm! I’m obsessed.) And I’m always “taking” tea with milk and my husband is [...]
