Morning Glory Muffins

Morning glory muffins are made with a little bit of everything- whole wheat flour, shredded carrots, apples, raisins, coconut, and walnuts. But despite their long list of ingredients, they are very easy to make. The most time consuming part is shredding a couple of carrots, but there are ways around that. If you have a…

Cinnamon Pear Pancakes

Cinnamon and pears go together like maple syrup and pancakes, and this recipe has all of the above. I love the unusual presentation of these pancakes. We didn’t grate or chop a pear into the batter. Instead, there’s a full slice of pear poking through the middle of each pancake that’s been seared with cinnamon…

Power Breakfast Baked Oatmeal

Here’s a breakfast dish worth getting out of bed for. Baked oatmeal is becoming a popular replacement for the traditional not-so-healthy bacon and egg casserole, and for good reason. This version is packed to the brim with power-house ingredients, and gives me all the energy I need to get through a weekday. You’ll want to use old-fashioned…

Fluffy Old Fashioned Pancakes

Meet the fluffiest pancakes you’ll ever make. These old fashioned pancakes are fluffy and rich, with a subtle hint of vanilla. I’ll sometimes serve them with a bowl of mixed fruit, or with a generous smear of nutella. And of course the combo of pancakes and maple syrup is one of the best things ever created- so…

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…

Pumpkin Nutella Crepes

So, I may have gone a bit overboard when I bought all those cans of pumpkin puree back in September, but I have no regrets. I think that these Pumpkin Nutella Crepes were one of the dishes I was looking forward to making the most. Ever since I made these Classic Swedish Pancakes, I’ve been…

Cranberry and Oat Breakfast Muffins

I gotta say, I love healthy foods that don’t taste healthy at all. I wanted a to-go version of the fruit and nut oatmeal I’ve been having every morning. Something that was healthy, packed with fiber and Vitamin C, but still super tasty. This time of year, it was a no-brainer to add a whole…

Bacon and White Cheddar Omelette

Some mornings, especially on weekends, I wake up and feel like a hearty, hot off the skillet breakfast. Those are usually the same mornings I don’t feel like spending much time prepping breakfast. So I whip out my cast iron skillet and let it do most of the work. This omelette is filled with crispy…
