Cinnamon Spice Granola

Nothing against cold cereal, but your family will know they are getting something special when they eat homemade granola, especially when it’s still a little warm.

Chocolate Banana Bread

I recently found myself saddled with ripe bananas, when the project I had intended to use them for fell through. The memory of this chocolate banana bread discussion came flooding back to me. And if I’m being completely honest, the thought of how this bread would look on this cutting board is the real reason I ended up making it.

24 Zucchini Recipes

I missed Zucchini Day. It just passed me right by. Several of my friends have asked me for more zucchini recipes. So, here I am. I’ve put together an amazing collection of recipes that will be perfect for using your bounteous harvest.

Baked Coconut Almond Oatmeal Cups

Can I make a confession? I don’t like oatmeal. Never have. There is not enough sugar in the world to make otherwise delicious oats actually taste good when they are cooked.

Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins

I’m probably going to get into trouble for making these muffins. Robb suggested them, and then he left town, and the rest of us ate his favorite blueberry muffins without him. Sorry, Robb. Try not to be made at me!

Brown Butter Breakfast Puffs

As soon as the kitchen is clean, and I do mean AS SOON AS, I feel an overwhelming urge to use everything in it. I can dirty a spotless kitchen in no time flat. Today I came home from running all my errands, took one look at the sparkling clean sink, and decided it was time to bake.

Pumpkin Chip Oat Muffins

I made these pumpkin muffins for breakfast on Christmas Day. Robb took a bite, and promptly gave me a thumbs-up. That’s code for, “Make these again.”

Banana Pomegranate Oat Muffins

When I looked at this gorgeous bowl of pomegranate arils, I just knew I had to make banana pomegranate muffins, and I couldn’t wait 4-5 days for the bananas to ripen. SO… I didn’t. I just took a couple fresh, almost green bananas, and diced them up.

Take that, family.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Turnovers

Pin ItRemember when, in another recent pumpkin post, I told a story about my nephew trying to decide whether or not he should be a dog?  This one little story has spawned a myriad of conversations in my life. My mother tells me that it is a very real thing for little boys, deciding which [Read On]

Breakfast Bars with Plum Filling

Pin ItThe charter school my kids go to has many fine qualities, but NOT among them is close proximity to my house.  In fact, the school is a good 8 miles away. So we carpool. Which can be boring.  I would never admit this out loud, though, especially not in the presence of my children, [Read On]
