Breakfast has never been my favorite meal. Don’t get me wrong, all the foods associated with breakfast are amazing. I just wish breakfast came later, preferably after I’ve had a good amount of sleep. Just another way to say that I’m one of those people who hit snooze as many times possible before actually being late for … More Berry Beet Banana Nice Cream
Breakfast, the most important meal of the day. It’s also the meal I look forward to eating least. Mostly that’s because eating too soon after I wake up makes me feel nauseated. Because I’d much rather sleep on weekday mornings, cold or room temperature breakfasts are my go to choice. I typically save the bacon and … More Salted Maple Coconut Granola.
Anyone who follows me on social media, be it Twitter or Instagram, knows I’ve been a bit obsessed with making these Swedish Cardamom, Cinnamon & Orange Buns. What makes this recipe Swedish other than the fact that the baker is a quarter-Swedish? The Internet told me so. And so did the ratty old copy of … More Swedish Cardamom, Cinnamon & Orange Buns.
The end of summer/early fall squashes remain a constant in the weekly CSA bag. This past weekend I made another batch of Butternut Squash Soup (sans cream this time), and baked two spaghetti squashes to serve with a garlicky, cashew basil pesto. We’re all squashed out in my house. Then there’s the zucchini, which is … More Zucchini Pancakes.
I am not a fan of pumpkin pie or French toast, yet, somehow I ate two servings of this and didn’t hate it. After Thanksgiving I was given a few slices of pumpkin pie to take home. I’m not a pumpkin pie fan — it’s the texture that bugs me, not the taste — but … More Pumpkin Pie Baked French Toast.
It might be a weekday, but the blustery weather is calling for pancakes. Plus I had some sour milk in the fridge so that finalized the decision. Initially, I sought to make lemon-raspberry pancakes. But then I saw the ginger and thought it sounded more seasonal. Have to say, I’m really happy how these turned … More Ginger-Lemon Pancakes.
Actually, ‘oeufs en cocottes’ isn’t that pretentious. It means ‘egg casserole’ (at least per Google translate) but most translate it as ‘eggs in pots.’ Saying the French name just makes me feel like an ass. Perhaps it is my horrid pronunciation (likely) or my habit of sticking my nose in the air when attempting–and failing–to … More Soft baked eggs with a pretentious French name.
A new kitchen, like a new pair of shoes, needs a break in period. In general, I find there’s an acquaintance period with a new place. Whether it’s figuring out how to arrange the refrigerator or which burner on the range is the best (front right), there are going to be ups (scratch pasta sauce) … More Roasted vegetable egg bake.
My family seems unable to go through a bunch of bananas before the final few start getting really spotty and black. Before we used to just toss them, a complete and disgusting waste of food. Now, however, we freeze them. Though they may look strange, frozen, over-ripe bananas are perfect for baking. When I saw … More Banana, cranberry & oat muffins.
Though I have a bit of an issue when it comes to the timing of breakfast, see here for an explanation, I still like traditional breakfast foods: muffins, pancakes, waffles, etc. I mean, who would say no to what is essentially cake for breakfast? Still, I don’t like overly sweet breakfasts aside from the occasional … More Breakfast fix: whole wheat waffles & cranberry jam
