Irish Soda Bread Biscuits

I’ve got the crock pot full of corned beef and cabbage, but it wouldn’t officially feel like St. Patty’s Day without some traditional Irish Soda Bread. I use the term ‘traditional’ loosely because we are using all traditional ingredients, down to the golden raisins and caraway seeds, but we’re baking up the bread in a…

Sometimes when you have pasta for dinner, you just want a thick slice of bread to soak up all that extra sauce. I know I do, and I usually wouldn’t mind that bread to be covered in a glorious amount of cheese. Three cheese garlic bread could pair with just about any simple pasta dish. In…

Blackberry Cream Cheese Pastries

Forget the flowers, bring on the sweets! I know that most typical Valentine’s Day desserts tend to feature chocolate, or at least a red fruit like raspberries, but blackberries are my husbands favorite so I decided to bend the ‘rules’ a little this year. Plus we’ve been on a blackberry kick after rediscovering all those…

Apple Quinoa Oatmeal Muffins

About 60 percent of the nation’s production of apples comes from Washington state, including just about every variety imaginable. Did you know that? That explains why I see apples for sale everywhere I go, and they always taste so freshly picked. I had a whole bunch of honeycrisp apples that were just starting to soften, so I…

Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Cake

We’re taking advantage of blueberry season while it’s still in full swing! I wasn’t quite sure whether to call this blueberry lemon treat a loaf or a cake. It bakes up like a bread in a loaf pan, but has the sweetness and tenderness of a cake. I decided to think of it as a bread…

Orange Almond Muffins

Today needed a bit of brightening, and seeing that savory muffins are my favorite treat, there was no question what was on the menu. These orange almond muffins took me under 15 minutes to prep and came together so easily. I combined orange and almond 2 ways each here: a 1/4 cup of orange juice…

Buttermilk Biscuits with Sausage Gravy

These classic buttermilk biscuits with sausage gravy are pure breakfast comfort food! In my opinion, nothing says love quite like a heaping plate of gravy-smothered biscuits for breakfast. They’re dangerously good, and definitely got the full approval from my husband. (It’s been a long-time request of his). I tried to use minimal ingredients for both the…

Bran Muffins with Cream Cheese Filling

Muffin Monday! I feel like bran muffins get a bad rap. I used to find them boring, dense, and dry, but still worth a try considering their health benefits (I’m looking at you, fiber). I experimented until I found muffins that were incredibly soft, slightly sweet, but still textured by the nutty bran. I sometimes…

Door County Banana Walnut Muffins

Each and every summer since I was a kid, my family would pack up the car and make the drive from Chicago up to Door County, Wisconsin. My grandma had a summer cottage in Egg Harbor, and we would spend a week or two reading on the deck, floating on inner tubes, and having breakfast…

Rhubarb Muffins

There’s a quaint farmer’s market not too far from my house on the Island that has the best fruit and veggie selection, all grown on Bainbridge. Every week I look forward to what they have, and this time rhubarb caught my eye. From the moment I spotted it, I knew some rhubarb muffins needed to…

Bananas Foster Bread with Cinnamon Crumble

Bananas foster meets banana bread meets cinnamon crumble topping; fitting for Mother’s Day! I love seeing bananas turn into that black spotty color because in my house it means 1 of 2 things: banana bread or bananas foster. In this case we aren’t sacrificing either because this recipe combines both- bananas foster banana bread with…
