Burger Buns

Share

Yeast and I have had a rocky relationship over the years. It’s only recently that we’ve become good friends. Our relationship was solidified after I took a bread making class at Sur Le Table with one of my sons. We made several kinds of bread during a three-hour class, and they were all easy to […]

My Boys' Favorite Waffles

Share

Our family has a new favorite waffle recipe. Actually, if I want to be completely accurate I should say that most or our family has a new favorite waffle recipe. Three out of the four boys think this is hands-down the best waffle recipe I have ever used. The fourth prefers the old one. This […]

Maple Cinnamon Biscuits

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. […]

Empanadas have been part of our regular dinner rotation for a while now. The boys LOVE them – well, three out of four boys love them. One still primarily eats yogurt and peanut butter sandwiches. Now, wouldn’t you think it was easy to make a meal that three out of four boys eat? Well, it […]

My sister Lauren visited some dear friends in California who are amazing cooks.  She was snapping iPhone photos of every meal they had, and one looked better than the next.   One afternoon, she snapped a shot of homemade hamburger buns and I was inspired!   I’m much better at breads made with yeast these days, so […]

Quick Cinnamon Buns with Buttermilk Icing

I’m a sweets person at heart. I try so hard to cook healthy meals, but I’m perpetually drawn to sweet baked treats like these. I made these the other day for the boys’ breakfast and each boy gave them a double thumbs up.

These cinnamon rolls are very easy to make. Unlike most cinnamon roll recipes, […]

Popovers

Share

The other morning I decided to try something new for breakfast. I made popovers. It was Saturday morning, and as they were cooking, the house smelled like Thanksgiving dinner minus the turkey. These are surprisingly easy to make. You make a basic egg batter, pour it into greased muffin tins, and throw them into a […]

Southern Biscuits

So, I’ve been playing around with Twitter lately. I figure it’s time I should have a first-hand understanding of the software that the boys will be using in a couple of years. My sister has been talking about Twitter for quite some time now, so I finally joined. I’ll […]

Whole-Wheat Biscuits

My boys are on a biscuit kick. They ask for them almost every night. If only I could get them to ask for a chicken dish, or something with good protein in it every night.

These biscuits are quite easy to make, especially if you have a stand mixer. You basically […]
