Protein Pancakes

These last few months I’ve had a goal of expanding our breakfast options, and preparing breakfast more often. Luckily my little one loves eggs and most breakfast type foods, because sometimes the rest of the day she won’t eat anything but mac n’ cheese. By cooking breakfast more often I’ve been able to make sure…

Honey Ricotta Biscuits

Biscuits are such a fun canvas to play with. They are delicious, buttery, and can take on so many different flavors. This round of biscuits is a little sweet and herby with the softest texture from the ricotta. My family loved them with jam and butter or just an over easy egg. A great biscuit…

Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

I know we’re past the holidays now, but my Christmas morning breakfast is still a great weekend breakfast for the many cold days still. It’s always such a disappointment to remember that the snow and ice doesn’t end with Christmas, so here’s to a warm weekend breakfast and a hot cup of coffee. For the…

Fig-glazed Bacon Sticky Knots

I love brunch. I love it for many reasons. I have time to enjoy coffee and wakeup before making it. Savory items galore, mixed in with a bit of sweet. This recipe falls on the sweeter side…but with BACON. After making this recipe you will only want bacon that has been coated and roasted in…

Zucchini Muffins

When summer comes around zucchini start hitting the market in full force, they are a great summer vegetable and go well with so many meals. While I love zucchini fried, roasted, or sautéed, I also won’t turn it down in a muffin or bread. As I’ve said before muffins are some of our favorite breakfasts…

Ham and Cheddar Breakfast Rolls

Savory breakfast pastries have been some of my favorite recipes to play with in the last few months. They hit all my requirements for a weekday breakfast; easy and already made, a little sweet, mostly savory, very filling. The flavor combination of apples, cheddar, and ham are classic and perfect for my savory “cinnamon roll”….

Orange Muffins

As I have said before, muffins are a staple around here for breakfast…and if you’re a toddler, also as a snack or last resort dinner when you refuse all other offerings..it is what is is I guess. That being said, my daughter has decided that Oranges are her favorite thing to eat, if it is…

Blackberry Bacon Breakfast Knots

Just take a minute and look at these beauties.   Blackberry and jalapeño (one of my favorite flavor combinations). The jalapeño doesn’t bring too much spice to the knots, but brings a nice balance to the sweetness of the jam. Thick cut black pepper bacon. All in and on a sweet roll, a perfect sweet…

Almond Chia Seed Muffins

We love muffins in this house. They are our go-to breakfast, unless it’s the weekend or I’ve prepped something else ahead, I am notoriously bad at making breakfast each day. So every once in awhile I will make a big batch of muffins, bag some up for the next couple days and freeze the rest….

Eggnog French Toast

Eggnog french toast has become one of my favorite December traditions. In culinary school, during bread week (which is the best week ever by the way), we learned how to make challah bread. Challah bread, pronounced like “holla!”, is a sweet bread that is special in Jewish cuisine. This braided bread is sweet and dense…
