Pumpkin Muffins

Muffins are my “go to” when it comes to travelling breakfast foods.  I like to make them when we are leaving early to go to an event or on a trip. Yes, some muffins have been called out for excessive calories and sodium.  However, muffins can be relatively healthy and tasty when you make your […]

Liege Belgian Waffles

While light, airy Belgian waffles that fill breakfast plates across the United States are very tasty, they are not my favorite of the Belgian waffles.  Yes, there are actually two different types of Belgium waffles in the world.  The light, airy one is often referred to as a Brussels waffle.  The other smaller, sugar-laden type […]

Peanut Butter Toast

My dad loved peanut butter almost as much as he loved candy. He would only eat creamy Jif peanut butter and he ate a lot of it. In fact, he consumed so much that I was in college before I realized that the oil could separate from the peanut butter and that eventually it could […]

Spinach and Bacon Quiche

Whether for a Mother’s Day breakfast in bed, a weekend brunch, or a ladies lunch, a quiche is a great and rather elegant egg option because it does not have to be served immediately and piping hot to be good.  Best of all, it can be easy to make. This quiche recipe has less than […]

Baked Eggs in Muffin Tins

Baking eggs in muffin cups is such a simple concept that I just wonder why I did not know about it earlier. This technique uses little to no fat and makes an egg that can be a perfect fit for an English muffin or a Southern biscuit. Baked eggs are a great way to go […]

Berry Smoothie: With and Without Dairy

There are so many different ways to make smoothies that appeal to different tastes that I debated whether I should write about we make smoothies at our house or just assume that the thousands of “recipes” out there are enough. As your reading this, you can see I finally decided to go with the former […]

Blueberry Stuffed French Toast Casserole

This blueberry stuffed french toast casserole is really ideal for a larger family or when you have people visiting. The original recipe made a 9 X 13 pan, but as I modified it to fit a 9 or 10 inch square dish. The smaller version still made about 6 servings… I also only used cream […]

Roasted Asparagus Frittata

Fresh asparagus + eggs + cheese = Yum. Whether for a weekend brunch or a weeknight dinner, a simple roasted asparagus frittata is a crowd pleaser. It is one of those dishes that looks like it was a great deal of effort, but was actually very simple. (I love dishes like that…don’t you?) I prefer […]

Eggnog Pancakes

I have never been much of a fan of drinking eggnog. However, I always liked my mom’s eggnog bread. I bought some eggnog to make her bread this year, but discovered that I did not have the right size of loaf pan to make it. Thus, I ended up with a quart of eggnog that […]

Mashed Potato Pancakes a.k.a. Potato Cakes

There were very few things my mom refused to eat and many of them had some childhood memory associated with them. Cold mashed potatoes were one of those things. She said that by the time the got to eat the mashed potatoes they were often cold. Thus at our house, mashed potatoes were one of […]
