If only this could show up fresh out of the oven in my kitchen EVERY morning. (Frankly it's totally easy to make so if I got a little more organized I could almost make that happen!)       My whole family goes a little batty over this bread. It's not so sweet that you can't eat it for Monday breakfast. Instead it's light, airy, a little bit tangy and oh so good toasted with a pat of butter and some strawberry jam.       English Muffin Toastable Bread recipe found on...

A dense coffee cake that isn't too sweet. Serve it for breakfast guests or whip it up for a small army of ladies who come together to discuss Brene Brown and life together once a week. In either case you won't have too many leftovers.      Recipe taken from No Spoon Necessary. Find it here. Add new comment...

You all know I'm a scone lover! A good scone lover because there certainly are a lot of bad ones out there. My first scone was a flavorless, dry, crumbly little affair someone had made from a mix, which makes me uncertain why I ever tried but I'm so glad I did!   These strawberry almond scones are right near the top of my scone list! If you don't have a mountain of cream with which to make my VERY favorite scone recipe, then these are your next best option.       They are fla...

You know when you are at a birthday party and you see a beautiful cake and you can't wait to eat it? ... And then you find out it's carrot cake. Well truth be told I find that really disappointing. If I want birthday cake I want it to be rich and chocolately or totally vanilla. But not filled with carrots. Of course, I'll eat it but it's just not my favorite.       Turning this into a coffee cake, though, is just brilliant because first thing in the morning I'm not demanding the l...

Anything that claims to be "like a waffle" but is not, is NOT. Let's just start there. I learned this years ago after several attempts at trying doughnut muffins and baked doughnuts. They are muffins, not doughnuts. So as long as the expectation is clear then we'll be okay.   These aren't doughnuts. They are slightly crunchier waffles. Which means they are good ... all covered in glazy-goodness. But they aren't doughnuts. So don't even think about thinking that's what you are getting.  ...

These might look just like your regular pancakes.    Well, they aren't! They are miles apart.   Sure they take more time, more dishes, a little more effort.       But these are NOT your momma's pancakes! They are so incredibly light and airy. Sort of crepe-like. They truly do take on the souffle-like texture that is promised.    I could probably eat ten of them.   Top them with your favorite syrup, berries, sprinkles or chocolate. Then dig in and sigh...

Nothing will ever top my favorite cream scone recipe. No mix-ins, no glazes. Just a classic scone with a dollop of whipped cream and a dot of raspberry jam. Perfection.    But that doesn't mean I never want to try a new scone recipe again.     These white chocolate and mocha scones are a nice twist on a classic scone. Not as flaky, buttery but who can resist that mocha flavor on a lazy Saturday morning?       White Chocolate Mocha Scones Adapted from Inside Bru...

This has been declared the ONLY french toast we should ever make ever again in my house. It's that good. That good.   Crunchy and slightly nutty. Pillowy, eggy bread inside. Total satisfaction.     My lovely husband patiently and methodically crumb-crusted them to perfection while I took a Sunday morning run. When I got home we cooked them and then we ate.   And we raved.   And we scarfed.   And we all wished we had doubled the recipe.        Cor...

Somehow sandwiches for dinner make me feel guilty. Like they aren't proper nutrition or something.   But they just taste so good.   Maybe this wrap is a little bit of both. Greens and goodness wrapped together, heavier on the protein than on the carbs but still so satisfying.       Honey-Dijon Chicken Quinoa Wraps Taken from The Kitchen Prep   Makes 2 wraps1/2 cup cooked, shredded chicken {or rotisserie chicken, shredded}1/2 cup cooked quinoa1/2 a green apple, slice...
