If you’re looking for something different to make for breakfast or brunch, try these biscuits. They’re wonderful hot out of the oven with butter.
The original recipe calls for adding 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans. I left them out because the boys don’t love nuts in things, but I personally think they’d be a great addition. […]
This recipe comes from a bookmark that I’ve had kicking around for a while. When I received a box of grapefruit as a gift, and we weren’t eating them fast enough (although they keep well for a while in the refrigerator), I knew it was time to try this recipe.
One of my sons loved this […]
The other morning, one of my sons asked me what I was planning to make for breakfast. I almost always offer them something homemade. Since it was a weekend morning and we didn’t have to worry about getting to school, I asked if he wanted to help me make something. It’s unusual that one of […]
I have made this corn bread several times now. We’ll eat it with dinner, then I’ll serve it again as toast for breakfast. Making cornbread in a loaf pan allows you to easily slice it into toaster-friendly pieces. This recipe is delicious toasted, and spread with butter. This is a very moist cornbread, so you […]
I know I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve officially become more of an occasional food blogger. With four boys in middle school, my time is devoted to them – bringing them here and there, helping with homework, encouraging them to do their homework rather than fool around, etc. I’m still doing a lot of […]
I always have a couple of overripe bananas in my freezer. I keep them for times when I want to make a banana bread or a smoothie. It’s tough to buy a banana that’s perfect for cooking. I find it takes a couple of days of sitting on a kitchen counter to get to the […]
I made these French Toast sticks recently on a lazy Saturday morning. The boys LOVED them (well, actually, three out of four did). I found them a little too sweet for my liking. They don’t take too long to make because you bake them on a large rimmed cookie sheet, so you’re able to make […]
Made these for breakfast yesterday and three out of four boys loved them. One claims he doesn’t like lemon-flavored things. These scones were delicious. Very tender and soft, and full of lemon flavor. The boys didn’t eat them all yesterday – they wanted to, but I wouldn’t let them – so they each had a […]
I made these muffins the week before Christmas when we had some eggnog in the house. They were delicious and the boys loved them. The things I like best about these muffins are their nutmeg flavor and the fact that they’re covered in powdered sugar just like a doughnut. These are perfect to serve on […]
This is a loaf of bread that you can have on the table in about 2 hours. It’s a very easy bread dough to mix, it doesn’t have any fancy ingredients and it makes a nice loaf of bread that will remind you of English muffins. I made this bread one afternoon, and it didn’t […]
