Cinnamon Streusel Baked French Toast Sticks

Share

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 […]

Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls

Share

Made these cinnamon roll biscuits for breakfast. The boys love biscuits and they love cinnamon rolls, and these are a great combination. The boys loved them. One gave them a score of 21 on a scale of 1-10 and another gave them a score of 100. Same scale. Clearly math is not their strong suit. […]

Chocolate Pancakes

Share

I’m always looking for new things to serve the boys for breakfast and I came across this recipe on the Internet.    If there’s one thing in our house that gets a unanimous thumbs up, it’s breakfast pancakes.    I usually make these pancakes for breakfast, but this morning I had some extra time before heading to […]

Baked Apple "Donuts"

Share

These “donuts” didn’t last long in our kitchen this morning. They are a variation of these muffins that I made earlier this summer, the primary difference being that these “donuts” (they’re actually more like muffins) have lots of diced apple in them. The apple seems to make them a bit heavier than […]

Lemon Muffins

Share

This recipe comes from the Williams Sonoma website. Their recipe is for lemon bread, but I’m on Shelter Island without a loaf pan, so I made the batter, poured it into greased mini-muffin pans and voila… lemon muffins. These really pack a lemony punch. I found them to be […]

Sugar Donut Muffins

One of my sons had a friend sleep over the other night. He’s a huge fan of my baking, so I knew I had to make something really good for breakfast. I decided on Cinnamon Bun Loaf. Doesn’t that sound good? Well it wasn’t. In fact […]

Vanilla Brown Sugar Breakfast Polenta

Share

I grew up eating hot cereal for breakfast.  My mother always told me that it would keep me warm on cold days.  “It’ll stick to your ribs”, she’d say.  I loved Cream of Rice and Cream of Wheat.  I liked Farina too.  With some milk and a sprinkling of sugar, breakfast couldn’t get any better […]

Spinach and Bacon Quiche

Share

Sometimes I want something a little different for dinner, so occasionally I’ll throw together a quiche. Paired with a side salad, it makes a nice dinner. This quiche is definitely robust enough to be served as a main dish because it’s full of eggs, cheese, bacon and spinach.

We are hosting a […]

Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins

Share

I love a good blueberry muffin, and this recipe is a great one. I just recently found it, so I haven’t had the opportunity to make it during blueberry season which is July – October here in NY. I really look forward to taking the boys blueberry picking this summer so […]

Whole Grain Buttermilk Pancakes

Share

My sister sent me an email a couple of weeks ago titled, “These really are THE BEST!!!” I was intrigued. She went on to tell me about a batch of pancakes she had just made. She’s never going to make pancakes any other way again, and neither am I. […]
