Mini Smoked Salmon Frittatas

My daughter loves salmon. When it is not in season (oh yeah…I don’t buy fresh farm raised salmon, a personal preference) I often buy smoked salmon from a large warehouse store and it is more than we use in one (or two or three) meal(s). Although my daughter likes to eat it plain, I like […]

Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes

Although it was not that long ago that I posted a very good recipe for oatmeal pancakes, I decided to post another recipe from the same cookbook for a slightly different version of oatmeal pancakes in honor of National Oatmeal Day (October 29). This recipe creates a fairly dense pancake with a slightly sweet, almost […]

Scrapple and Apples

The fall seems to always bring out the desire in me for comfort food.  Perhaps, the cooler temperatures have me wanting something more hearty than my preferred light summer cuisine.  Perhaps,  wonderful memories of fun family-centered falls of the past have me wanting my Mom’s cooking.  Whatever it is, my husband must have some of […]

A Better Breakfast Sandwich

I believe the English muffin breakfast sandwiches I make at home are better than those I can buy at a fast food restaurant. Why? My sandwiches cost me less and I control what I put in them. The money saved may not be dramatic but it can add up. Locally, I spend around $2.00 at […]

Smoked Salmon Omelette or Omelet

I can’t believe that I ran into a problem writing this post over how to spell the dish. First, my husband walks by the desk and tells me he did not think I had it spelled correctly. So, I checked it by writing it in the body of the post and the spell checker flagged […]

Oatmeal Pancakes

I had no idea when I saw the recipe for these pancakes in my Lehman’s Anniversary Cookbook that these pancakes would be such a big hit with my six-year-old. She loved them! I guess I should of known she would considering she likes pancakes and loves oatmeal. I must confess that I normally do not […]

Easy Homemade Granola

I do not pay more than two dollars for a box of cereal…unless my husband is at the grocery store with me. He purports to not like “flaked” cereal, thus he is always putting some type of granola in the cart. Except on a rare occasion, the granola is much more than two dollars a […]

How to Hard Boil an Egg

Although it seems like a fundamentally easy task, boiling an egg can result in yellow yolks acquiring a green/gray outer coating. These are not the most appetizing nor do they make the best looking deviled eggs. The question is can it be avoided? The answer is yes. It is actually fairly easy to consistently have […]

Big Dutch Baby with Berries

Inspired by a recipe from my experience at the Taste of Home Cooking School, I decided to make a Big Dutch Baby in a more of a traditional method than than the puff pancake recipe demonstrated as part of the school. The Dutch Baby is also known as a German Pancake. It is not Dutch, […]

Tortillas Plus Cheese Equals Two Yummy Dishes

It is truly fantastic what wonderful things can be made from cheese and tortillas. My favorites to make at home are breakfast burritos and quesadillas. Yes, they are extremely simple, but they are also extremely versatile and delicious. We often have them in the same week because I like to use leftovers. First, I make […]
