Homemade English Muffins

Homemade English Muffins

I love English muffins, but it had been too long since I’ve made them. When I made apple butter last fall, I decided that I had to make them again – nothing else would do.

Baked Potato and Bacon Soup

Baked Potato and Bacon Soup

I’ve been thinking about this delicious baked potato and bacon soup for a while, and I finally revisited it. I’m glad I did. It’s easy to make, while being hearty, filling, and delicious. In other words, incredibly satisfying. And it’s perfect for winter.

Steel Cut Oats with Walnuts and Pear

Steel Cut Oats with Walnuts and Pear

Today I’m writing about my favorite new healthy breakfast. I stumbled upon this combination of steel-cut oats, walnuts, and pear by accident, but I honestly can’t get enough of it now. Some days I wake up craving it. I’ve loved steel-cut oats since I first […]

2019 Resolutions

2019 Resolutions

I feel like I’ve been waiting for 2018 to end for the last few weeks. I hate that I’ve felt that way. In part, it’s because of the hustle of Christmas. We traveled to Texas to have an early Christmas with my family, then had […]

Microwave Peanut Brittle

Microwave Peanut Brittle

I first found this recipe for Microwave Peanut Brittle 4 years ago, and quite honestly, it’s fantastic. Alex and I are not peanut brittle lovers, but we sneak bites of this every day until I package it up. I’ve made batches and batches of it […]

Alton Brown’s Hot Cocoa Mix

Alton Brown’s Hot Cocoa Mix

I love homemade hot chocolate, made with milk or rich cream, but sometimes it’s cold and you want something a little easier and kid-friendly (and lighter). When I do, I turn to this Hot Cocoa Mix recipe that I adapted from Alton Brown’s. What do […]

How to Freeze Cinnamon Rolls (and Other Bread and Breakfast)

How to Freeze Cinnamon Rolls (and Other Bread and Breakfast)

I love freshly baked, homemade cinnamon rolls. Particularly for breakfast, in the actual a.m. What I don’t like so much is getting up early enough to make cinnamon rolls from scratch. But guess what – I can make those cinnamon rolls in advance and bake […]

Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones (or Christmas Scones)

Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones (or Christmas Scones)

In my quest to make weekend breakfast more often this year, I’ve returned to making scones more often. This time, I decided to revisit the Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones that I made 8 years ago as my 367th and final recipe of 2010, when I […]
