Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pancakes

I LOVE breakfast. With a young baby my breakfast often ends up being a bowl of cereal or a couple pieces of toast (or sometimes I go with out!) but when I have time to make something a little more special for breakfast I do, and I love it! One of my favorite things to […]

Chocolate Crepes with Orange-Lemon Curd

Crepes are so easy to make, I forget how easy they are to make.  This orange-lemon curd is quite easy also because you use the microwave.  So with all that ease don’t hesitate to whip together these chocolate crepes with orange-lemon curd tonight for dinner. Tuesday night, I came home uninspired and with no desire […]

Mixed Berry Sweet Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls are one of my favorite breakfast options. But another favorite is raspberry sweet rolls. Somehow I’ve gone all the years of my life and have never made my own raspberry sweet rolls though. And I guess technically I still haven’t, because for these sweet rolls I used a bag of frozen mixed berries instead […]

Oven Baked Pancake with Berries

I love this recipe for this Oven Baked Pancake with Berries.  I love everything about it; the ease, the crisp edge, the flavor, the texture, and the amount (just right for two of us). A few weeks ago, I found the perfect cast iron frying pan.  I had been wanting a cast iron pan for […]

Applesauce Pancakes

We have jars and jars of applesauce in our basement, that we canned this fall from apples we got from a neighbors tree. Personally I am a huge fan of applesauce that has a slight cinnamon and sugar taste, so that’s how I made my applesauce. I meant to post an update to this recipe […]

Easy Fruit Smoothie

Mmm, I love smoothies. I love drinking them for breakfast, for a snack, or for a healthier dessert option. In fact, I think one of my best friend’s and I truly connected over drinking smoothies together. She and I had class together my first semester at BYU, it was a freshman English class. I hadn’t […]

Berry Syrup

This berry syrup was inspired by Aimee’s stuffed French toast post when she mentioned the Kodiak Cakes syrup she enjoyed from Costco.  Craig and I had our oldest with his family here visiting, and decided it was the perfect time to make the stuffed French toast but we, alas, did not have the Kodiak Cakes […]

Kumquat Oatmeal Bread

We have had kumquats almost coming out of our ears, each week in our CSA box we have received a lunch bag full of kumquats (that equates to about 40 kumquats a week). I have been looking for numerous recipes to use the kumquats in because although they have been a favorite of my mom’s, […]

Easy Waffle Cinnamon Rolls

I think I have mentioned it before, but I grew up with and still have a strong love for Pillsbury’s canned cinnamon rolls. We used to have them almost every Sunday morning for breakfast. The regular cinnamon rolls or the orange rolls are both great. And we also grew up having them for Christmas morning […]

These pumpkin oatmeal muffins are so moist, easy, and healthy. I made them as part of Craig and my dinner with a healthy salad and they were just the right pairing.  I have always enjoyed a good bread or muffin with soup or a salad and still feel like I am eating a substantial  and […]
