Apple and Pomegranate Breakfast Crumble

December 29, 2011 Breakfast

This is just a little something I threw together on a whim a few weeks back. You see, inside my refrigerator lived a lonely, unloved pomegranate begging to be used before it went bad. And then there was that near-bushel of apples my mother-in-law sent us home with after Thanksgiving. I hate for perfectly good [...]

Chocolate Chip and Pistachio Belgian Waffles

December 24, 2011 Breakfast

I’m sure many of you have Christmas morning traditions. When I was a kid, my mother would get up early and whip up a batch of “Santa pancakes” for my sister and me. She’d dress up pancakes with strawberries (for the red, Santa hat), whipped cream (for the beard), and blueberries or chocolate chips (for [...]

Pumpkin Vanilla Smoothie

November 20, 2011 Beverages

I think I’ve finally managed to crawl out of my breakfast rut. It took a little effort and more than a few tries in the kitchen, but, thanks to this smoothie, I am once more excited for breakfast! (Who am I kidding?- I can once more tolerate breakfast and that’s saying a lot!)  I know [...]

Fig and Goat Cheese Breakfast Crostini

October 25, 2011 Breakfast

I intended to post this way back when figs were in still in season. Per usual, things didn’t go as planned. If, by chance, you happen to find a fresh fig or two at your grocery store, please make this for breakfast. It’s divine. It’s also a no brainer, which is what I often look [...]

Sweet Potato Skillet Hash

October 24, 2011 Breakfast

I love weeknight meals like this one, that can be whipped up in a single skillet. When you’ve worked a long day and you’re tired and hungry, throw a bunch of veggies in a hot cast iron skillet, stick a fork in it, and call it a night. Ingredients: (makes 2 servings) 1 cup diced [...]

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

October 20, 2011 Breakfast

Here’s an idea for what you can do this weekend. Lazy morning cinnamon rolls. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday or Sunday morning, or both. Why not? It is officially fall, after all, which means pumpkins, crisp air, trick o’ treaters, and candy, lots of candy. These are also the [...]

Honey and Applesauce Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

October 14, 2011 Breakfast

These cupcakes are special. They are big boy cupcakes I made for Calvin who recently turned one year old. Calvin is one of the cutest babies I’ve seen and destined, I fear, to be a serious heartbreaker. Unlike the last time I made cupcakes for a child’s birthday party , I opted not to roll [...]

Lemon Yogurt Muffins

September 20, 2011 Breakfast

As I was making these, I discovered that my baking powder was old. I mean old. Dead and gone. It expired in 2009. Has that ever happened to you? Once, when we were at the farm cooking dinner for the family, we found some cumin in the spice rack from the 1980s. You didn’t even [...]

Mini Vanilla Cinnamon and Sugar Donuts

September 5, 2011 Breakfast

This is a food trend I have not exactly been on top of.  To be honest, I’m not big on donuts and, in the event that I get a craving for one, I buy my donuts at the store. But after seeing more than a few mouth watering recipes on various blogs, I worked myself [...]

Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

July 24, 2011 Breakfast

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before, but I am a collector of mixing bowls. I really love a sturdy bowl, with smooth curves, that you can cradle in one arm while you stir with the other. Not that I ever do that. Nope. My bowls stay firmly on the counter while I mix. I [...]
