Eggs Benedict

Inspired by Eggs Benedict at Martha’s 22nd Street Grill in Hermosa Beach, CA and Cafe Benelux in Milwaukee, WI, this recipe includes all my favorite components of the different twists I’ve had on this classic dish. I prefer thinly shaved ham over Canadian bacon as well as the addition of sauteed spinach and a thick-cut tomato, all covered in plentyRead more

Apple Cinnamon Bread

Do you ever have a meal/dish idea in your head before you find a recipe for it? That was the case with this bread. I knew I wanted an apple-cinnamon quick bread on Sunday morning, so I took a few minutes on Saturday night to look for a recipe. I found several, but most were immediately disqualified if I didn’t have all the Read more

Red Velvet Waffles

Here is another breakfast idea for your Valentine’s day morning – red velvet waffles! They are essentially a basic waffle recipe with a hint of chocolate, red food coloring and tangy buttermilk, reminiscent of a red velvet cupcake. The flavor and sweetness is subtle, so you don’t have to feel like you’re eating cake for breakfast- not that there isRead more

Heart Cinnamon Rolls

These adorable cinnamon rolls would make the perfect breakfast surprise your valentine this year. I wanted to surprise James with them on Valentine’s Day, but for the sake of the blog, I had to make them early! I saw the idea for the hearts on Pinterest a few months and have been thinking about making them ever since. For theRead more

Bacon Cheddar Scones

Here’s yet another keeper from the very talented Rebbecca Rather. If you haven’t purchased The Pastry Queen yet, I think it’s time to consider doing so! First of all, how enticing does the title of this recipe sound?! In my opinion, these scones are more biscuit-like than scone-like, but they are still delicious. You can bake up a batch onRead more

Eggnog Waffles

This morning I wanted to share a holiday breakfast idea with you – eggnog waffles. They are a great way to incorporate holiday flavors into the start of your day. As an extra bonus, there’s a shot of rum added to the batter. Have I sold you now? Last year, I made gingerbread waffles, but I’d have to say theseRead more

Pumpkin Spice Muffins with Pecan Streusel Topping

I feel the need to overdose on pumpkin every fall so please bear with me while I get through this year. I will be overloading you with pumpkin recipes! Last year I made these cream cheese filled pumpkin muffins, which are really, REALLY good, but sometimes you need something a little less rich. These pumpkin muffins are perfectly spiced withRead more

Cinnamon Swirl French Toast with Blueberry Sauce

A few weeks ago, James and I spent a long weekend in San Diego. Since food is pretty much the center of my life, it’s no surprise that we tried a lot of local restaurants while we were there. One of the breakfast spots we tried was The Mission. I had read reviews ahead of time and nearly every personRead more

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Most weeks we do our shopping on Saturdays after breakfast so often times I find myself completely stumped on what to make for breakfast on those mornings. Although we have some food left in the house, I never plan ahead enough to make a “real” meal. This week we had leftover apples and of the staples (eggs, milk, flour, etc)Read more

Cinnamon & Sugar Pull-Apart Bread

I’m going to be honest here; This bread is not a quick breakfast to make. I started at 7:30 am and we weren’t eating until 9:45. Most of the time is inactive though so don’t worry too much. It requires two dough rises so you have plenty of time to do other things while you’re baking (i.e. Facebook stalking). IfRead more
