I have a strong belief that there is no discomfort which cannot be softened by baked goods made with buttermilk and chocolate chips.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Pancakes are such a fantastic dinner choice. There’s no chicken or bacon or cheese to make the dog crazy, and the kids love having pancakes. The adults are mostly focused on the lemon syrup.
The cash diet forced me to part with my beloved chocolate muffins, but I figured there was no reason on earth I couldn’t recreate them with ingredients I already had on hand at home. Happy Dessert-Breakfast to me.
Scones are one of my favorite breakfast foods. This scone recipe uses coconut, white chocolate, and buttermilk.
Green Smoothie recipes are easily found these days, and there are plenty of schools of thought on the subject. Since I now have a green smoothie for breakfast almost every day, I’ll share a few of my thoughts about it.
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.”
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.
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]
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]
Pin ItUnder normal circumstances, I try to limit the amount of baking chips I purchase. But, let’s be honest, you can’t expect a girl to just never buy chocolate chips, can you? I found a clearance basket at my local grocery store that was full of Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate chips. I’m not sure whether they [Read On]
Pin ItEvery year we take this ridiculous camping trip. Well, it must not be that ridiculous, because we love it enough to do it every year. It’s mostly ridiculous because it takes us more than 9 hours to drive there (one way!), a drive that normally involves car sickness, and once we get there, we [Read On]
Pin ItI have this problem. When I bake stuff, I always want lots of people to tell me how amazing it is. Because I’m vain. My family has learned to accommodate me. When I made these banana muffins, I was pretty proud of myself. I yelled through the house, “Chow’s on!,” expecting people to come running, but [Read On]
Pin ItI did something this week that I have never done before. I bought a frozen cream pie. It’s just one of those things that would never cross my mind to purchase. But, among the many coupons I came home from BlogHer Food with were a couple for frozen Sara Lee products. In other words, [Read On]
