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)….

Yummy Coconut Pancakes

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. Ingredients: 4 eggs 1 cup milk (coconut and…

Ham and Egg Cups

Here’s a simple recipe for a hearty, filling breakfast that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your home or easily taken with you to eat on the road.  It can also keep you on track with your diet by being made low fat by simply using egg whites and low fat cheese.  You can…

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

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…
