  • Cranberry Pistachio Dutch Oven Bread

    Cranberry Pistachio Dutch Oven Bread

    I love to bake, especially when I can figure out how to tweak a recipe to make it easier, or one that requires minimal ingredients and work! I have a basic bread recipe that I love to use where I can incorporate different fillers to make it sweet or savory. This bread uses the base […]

  • Breakfast Bread Pudding

    Breakfast Bread Pudding

    Sometimes, we just need something sweet for breakfast or brunch… or we want to have something impressive for a get together.  Sometimes, we just have a whole bread assortment from the holidays that we need to use up before it goes bad. The latter would be my predicament. Ingredients: 6 cups worth of day-old bread buns, […]

    Pumpkin Spice Scones

    I made scones for the first time and they are quite delicious! They may not look pretty and uniform, but isn’t that kind of the beauty of scones? These pumpkin spice scones are great for holiday guests or brunch. It also just looks impressive to your guests that you baked a homemade treat that looks […]

  • Bye bye dairy and gluten

    I’ve been dealing with some health issues and after numerous doctor visits with zero solutions, I finally turned to a more holistic route. I visited an acupuncturist and finally feel like I have more answers and a plan of action. One thing we discovered through Iridology was that I have wheat and dairy issues. Womp […]

  • Let’s Eat! 2 Week mealplan

    Here’s my 14 day meal plan consisting of mostly organic / “clean-ish” eating options. This feeds a family of 5-6 (sometimes with leftovers depending on how hungry everyone is!). My goal is to get the cost down, but this currently totals around $250 (shopping mostly sale items and/or using cartwheel coupons when shopping at Target). […]

    If you’ve been following my blog, I think it’s pretty well established that breakfast foods are my most favorite.  Like my good man Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation says “There has never been a sadness that can’t be cured by breakfast food.”  Such wisdom, Ron, such wisdom.

  • Oooooh Baby, Baby… Yummy Dutch Babies…

    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. […]

  • Egg in a Basket

    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 […]
