Breakfast

Snickerdoodle Apple Scones

September 16, 2021

These are my all-time favorite autumn breakfast treats. They make a delicious after school snack as well. Golden Delicious work well for this recipe, but you may use any apple that you like.

Breakfast Poutine

September 2, 2021

Americans have embraced the Canadian invention of poutine, making it our own with some unique touches. Typically, French fries are topped with cheese curds and gravy. In this recipe, scrambled eggs and sausage are added to make a hearty breakfast dish.

Strawberry Breakfast Cake

July 12, 2021

I like to make summer mornings as easy as possible, especially when I have guests. Having this easy Strawberry Breakfast Cake on hand makes it possible.

Eggs Florentine

July 8, 2021

Perfectly poached eggs with spinach and buttery hollandaise isn’t just for Sunday brunch. If you have summer guests, like I do, this is a special breakfast, brunch, or even dinner. A dash of white wine vinegar (about 2 teaspoons) added to the poaching water will encourage the protein in the eggs to coagulate, creating a neater looking poached egg.

Baked Banana Nut Donuts

June 9, 2021

Make good use out of those extra ripe bananas while keeping things on the healthier side by using applesauce instead of oil. Baked, soft, and fluffy donut are a perfect match for a strong cup of morning coffee.

Paleo Waffles

March 29, 2021

Paleo waffles that are gluten free and dairy free are delicious for breakfast or brunch. Made with almond and coconut flour you would never guess these waffles are paleo, gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free. You could also serve these with chicken & waffles.

Cake Batter Pancakes

March 9, 2021

If you’ve never had Cake Batter Pancakes, you’re seriously missing out. The batter is super easy and sinfully delicious. You may use vanilla, chocolate, or whatever flavor of mix that you want. If you want to add extra flavor boosts then add vanilla or almond extract, citrus zest, cinnamon, or nutmeg.

Homemade Granola

March 8, 2021

Any of these ingredients may be added to the granola in equal quantities: Chopped dried dates, apples, pineapple, apricots, pears, mangos, raisins, dried cranberries, cherries, blueberries, chopped almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, sunflower seeds, wheat flakes, or oat bran. You also might want to try using different honeys like lavender or orange blossom. Or you may want to use maple syrup instead of honey. When trying out new additions make sure to keep a good proportion of crunchy ingredients in the final mixture.

Homemade Instant Oatmeal Jars

January 9, 2021

Most of us consider breakfast the most important meal of the day. Instant oatmeal packets are a lifesaver for busy mornings, but consider making your own instant oatmeal jars. Buy oatmeal, dried fruit and nuts in bulk and make your own version of instant oatmeal. You’ll be saving money at the same time. Use cute mason jars to portion out your breakfast.

Bacon & Egg Breakfast Cups

December 1, 2020

When I have holiday guests I like to make this classic combination of bacon and eggs that are baked atop buttered bread slices in individual ramekins or muffin tins for a breakfast or brunch entrée.
