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 […]

Almond Oatmeal Apple Scones

These almond oatmeal apple scones are divine.  I would make them day after day and eat every single one if I could. They are filled with amazing goodness of oats and apples flavored with cardamon, cinnamon, nutmeg, and almond extract.  I adore almond extract, the flavor is amazing and addicting.  I discovered this sweet recipe […]


Sweet Potato Cinnamon Swirl Bread

The sweet potato is a typical vegetable served during the fall and winter months.  Perhaps you even grew up with it traditional at your Thanksgiving table; even smothered in marshmallows, brown sugar, and butter.  That is probably the favorite presentation of sweet potatoes in the Garrett household my husband grew up in.


Breakfast Casserole

I have eaten a few different breakfast casseroles in my life. Some are filled with sausage, some have broccoli, some have who knows what else. All have been delicious. Well this weekend was a lazy weekend for us and I actually had time to make us breakfast or brunch. I have eaten lots of breakfast […]


Blueberry Coconut Orange Muffins

Oh my, oh my, oh my – we loved these muffins and they only got tastier and better after a day.


Peach Pie Pancakes

The other day I pretty much whipped up three batches of pancakes. I made double the batter for my perfect pancakes and then I made some of them into banana pancakes (recipe coming soon) and some of them into these scrumptious peach pie pancakes. I was planning on these becoming peach cobbler pancakes. But then I […]


Perfect Pancakes

I love pancakes. Who doesn’t love pancakes? Right? They are great for breakfast and they are great when we have breakfast for dinner. I grew up and am used to always using a pancake mix like bisquick or krusteaz. And I’ll probably use those some times still. But when I want to take just a […]
