Breakfast/Brunch

Easy Pumpkin Monkey Bread

It  is almost October but I just couldn’t wait another moment to post a pumpkin recipe.  I absolutely LOVE the flavors of fall and baking during this time of year not only fills my belly…but my soul.  I make a couple of different versions of Monkey Bread.  One uses frozen rolls and rises overnight, then […] Read more…

Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake

It is back to school time!  I remember the nerves I had as a kid the night before school started.  I also remember that I always had a new outfit and looked forward to whatever my sweet mama was going to make for breakfast.  My mom was/is a rock star in the kitchen.  You could […] Read more…

Banana Crumb Cake

I have to admit that I am not exactly a banana fan.  On occasion I will eat one that is super green, the only exception is banana crumb cake.  Normally I buy bananas just for that purpose and let them set on the counter until they are super ripe and ready to mash.  The key […] Read more…

Quick Strawberry Freezer Jam {No Pectin}

Last week I posted a killer Strawberry Shortcake Recipe and now today I am back with Quick Strawberry Freezer Jam.  Another day…another strawberry recipe!!   I love summer!!  My students LOVE jam, sometimes I think that they come up with recipes just so they can smother it with jam.  When I teach them about preserving food […] Read more…

Maple Pecan Scones

Today you are in for a major treat because these scones are AMAZING.  I always explain scones like a biscuit {see my favorite biscuit recipe here} on steroids!  Sometimes they have an egg in them and sometimes they don’t but they almost always have something mixed inside them.  Many of them even have a decadent […] Read more…

Dutch Baby Pancake {no blender needed}

I have decided to continue on the breakfast train this week.  Today I am sharing a recipe for a Dutch Baby Pancake {or a “substantial crepe”…as my Darb calls them}.  Most recipes I have seen for a Dutch Baby Pancake {aka German Pancake} use a blender to mix the ingredients.  While that seems amazing…I hate […] Read more…

Pancake, Sausage and Egg Sliders

As delicious as breakfast can be, I am not someone who believes it is the most important meal of the day {sorry breakfast fans}.  That however, doesn’t mean that I don’t love breakfast foods.  In fact, when I was growing up breakfast for dinner was one of my favorite meals.  I don’t really know what […] Read more…

One Rise Cinnamon Rolls

I can hardly believe that it is almost April!  Time seems to fly so much faster, the older I get.  As of today we only have 65 days until my Tales offically graduates.  I still think of her being a sassy 5 year old…and now she is a SUPER sassy 18 year old.  With Easter […] Read more…

Rainbow Pancakes

One of the things that is sad about having kids who are in college is that I don’t have an excuse to make “fun food” anymore.  Heart cinnamon rolls on Valentine’s Day, candy corn pizza for Halloween, I was always trying to make everyday food, extra fun around the holidays and although my step daughters […] Read more…

Sky High Biscuits

There is something about a biscuit that is so comforting.  My grandma Pearl used to make them for me in my 20’s.  I was working mama with two young children and she was our babysitter {we were so lucky}.  She also fed us breakfast every single morning when we dropped the kids off, on our […] Read more…
