Morning Glory Muffins

  I’m a big muffin maker so I keep my eyes peeled for new and interesting baked goods options, and I’ve recently seen so many takes on this. While I’ve stirred up my share of carrot sheet cake and pumpkin bread, I had never tried a Morning Glory muffin before. So of course I got right down toContinue reading “Morning Glory Muffins”

Easy Peasy Pancakes

  There are some amazing pancake recipes in the world, stirred up with quinoa and coconut and banana and chai tea, even. And someday, I’m sure I’ll get to those. But for now, the basic flour-milk-egg version is doing me just fine. They’re a great switch from our Sunday Morning Waffles every now and again and sometimesContinue reading “Easy Peasy Pancakes”

Classic French Toast

  My husband is our bread baker, so we eat wonderful, homemade loaves of bread for our sandwiches and toast and — lucky us — once every couple of weeks that good bread becomes one of our family’s favorite breakfasts: French Toast. Serve this basic recipe with powdered sugar sprinkled on top or a drizzle ofContinue reading “Classic French Toast”

Sunday Morning Waffles

  At our house, Sunday mornings mean waffles. Often before the sun is up, my husband and I are downstairs, heating the cast iron waffle maker, tossing together the flour, eggs, butter and milk. My waffle rarely makes it to a plate. I usually stand, gobbling its steaming goodness. And forget about leftovers. If weContinue reading “Sunday Morning Waffles”

Best Blueberry Muffins

  I make a batch of quick bread or muffins pretty much every week. They are gobbled for breakfast, slipped into lunch boxes and devoured for snacks. As a gardener and a nutrition-conscious mom, most of my muffins feature fruit or veggies, many that we’ve grown or picked ourselves. But the best part about thisContinue reading “Best Blueberry Muffins”

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones

  In my quest to enjoy all the pumpkin I process and freeze every fall, I am always searching for new recipes. This one crossed my computer a few months ago and has since become a hit. The scones are hearty and earthy and the chocolate chips give them just a hint of decadence. Recipe inspired byContinue reading “Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones”

Spinach Banana Muffins

  We are a big muffin family and I often find ways to tuck veggies (think pumpkin, zucchini) into my batter. But when I first made these, I braced myself for a chorus of frowns and yucks. Instead, these muffins disappeared. They were a hit for breakfast and snack and were requested for dessert one night. You heardContinue reading “Spinach Banana Muffins”
