Oooooh Baby, Baby… Yummy Dutch Babies…

Please tell me you sang that title as you read it?  I was first introduced to German pancakes at my last baby shower, so making the mini version, aka “Dutch Babies” just seemed fitting.  This delectable pancake is almost like a thicker version of my favorite pancake the French crepe. Ingredients: 6 eggs 1/4 cup butter, melted…

Peppers ‘n Eggs

We eat eggs daily around here, and sometimes the two options of scrambled or fried gets a little old.  I like to try to change it up a bit with veggies, but don’t have the time to plate omelets or whip up a quiche for 5 when we’re rushing to get out the door every morning….

Heavenly Mac N Cheese

Who didn’t love macaroni and cheese growing up?  The ooey gooey, warm, cheesy goodness that many of us looked forward to as an after school snack.  I still grab a bowl when I make it for my kiddos.  Here’s a more decadent, sophisticated, if you must version on this childhood classic.  I call it Heavenly Mac…

Blackberry Peach Preserves

Recently, blackberries were .88 a carton, so naturally I grabbed as many as my hands could hold.  We’ve been eating them with yogurt, oatmeal, fresh out of the carton… we were blackberried out… but we still had a few left that I didn’t want to go to waste.  I checked my freezer and noticed I…

Egg in a Basket

Growing up, this was one of my favorite breakfast dishes. This must be a Southern thing, because when I moved to California, and mentioned this breakfast to my roommates, they all looked at me crazy! But as soon as I made it, they all fell in love, and constantly asked me to make this again…

Coconut Donut Holes

Sometimes, we just need a donut.  Hot little puffs of sweet perfection.  Mmmmmmm.  I like donut holes because they’re more portable and I like to tell myself I’m consuming less calories than I would be eating an entire donut.  Ha ha ha.  My kids love them as well.  So, one day after school I came up…

Superhero Cape

“Let’s pretend we’re…”  I love hearing this phrase from my kids.  They love exploring their own imaginative worlds with fun costumes and props.  If your kids love dressing up and playing pretend as much as mine do you will melt once you see this ADORABLE Superhero cape by my friend Sarah Beth at Lace & Pine…

Delicious Sausage, Egg and Kale Mini Frittatas

Breakfast is hands down my favorite meal of the day… well, maybe not the time, because I’m NOT a morning person… but breakfast foods are my fave!  This next recipe is one of those breakfast options that is yummy alone or can even be paired with a side salad for lunch.  It’s also a great option…

Oats to Go

Overnight oatmeal has become a popular breakfast choice as of late.  I’m not much of an oatmeal fan, but I thought if it’s so popular, it must be good, so I gave this it a try.  I’m glad I did!  It’s simple, easy and can be made in bulk batches to eat throughout the week.  I…

Co-washing

What is co-washing? Co-washing is all the rage in hair care right now, but what does it even mean?  “Co-washing” is the abbreviated term for “conditioner washing,” which is exactly what it sounds like – it’s a method of cleansing your hair with conditioner instead of shampoo. Originally, it was intended for use by those with naturally…
