Oh this has been a sweet, sweet discovery. It makes just about everything better.   Pour it over your pancakes, your french toast or your yeasted waffles that you just made.   And then when you are done with breakfast, put it in the fridge and wait til the kids go to bed. And then pull it back out and drizzle it over your homemade Cookies'n' Cream ice cream and woah! it's good.       Peanut Butter Maple Syrup Taken from Oh Sweet Basil   6 tablespoons of unsalted but...

Soggy waffles are miserable.  I'd rather have a piece of toast, frankly.   As it turns out, making yeasted waffles is genius on this account and one other.  I found these waffles to hold their crisp far longer than their egg white/baking powder cousins.  And having the batter prepped and ready after sitting overnight is almost always a win in my book!     This is a basic recipe and these wafflles can be invented time and time again with whatever toppings you are cra...

We've been over this, right?  How I love pancakes so, so, so much.  How I love to try new kinds of pancakes.  How the dual between regular schmegular pancakes and something new gets decided by whoever wakes up first?  Well, guess who's been winning that one more lately?   Breakfast fare and coffee married together.  How could that go wrong?  Well it didn't.  It was in fact delightful and frankly I could almost skip all the chocolatey nutella parts of it be...

One Mother's Day Nate made me these Nutella Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing.  Double yum.  But they involve time and commitment, which lots of us don't have on a regular basis.  In which case, let me introduce you to a new friend called Nutella Drop Biscuits.  See?  Already from the name you can tell YOU could make these.  All you have to do is drop 'em.     Drop 'em and then give them a healthy sprinkle of flaky sea salt.  (Possibly the smartest Christ...

We are a pancake family.  All four of us.  We eat them almost once a week in their decadent, sugary, pillowy glory.  If Nate's in charge we will always have our classic, vanilla, sky high pancakes.     If I'm in charge you never know what might come out of the kitchen.  Pumpkin Cinnamon Streusel Pancakes (so good!), Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Pancakes, Almond Poppyseed Pancakes (light and delightful), Cinnamon Roll pancakes (I love cinnamon!), Milk Chocolate Ch...

Round two in seasonal fare that is being introduced past its time.     If you're hungry.  If you're kids are hungry or even remotely possible hungry in the next hour.  I DON'T recommend pulling out this recipe and giving it a whirl.  It takes time.  Time I really didn't have on the morning I decided to make this.  When breakfast became second breakfast, otherwise known as lunch at 11:30am.   But it was yummy and seasonal.  And it wasn't your basic pum...

I am SO behind.  I am studying for a big examination in early February and I've spent the past few months using my spare time just for that: studying.  No food blogging, no extra tv or crafting.     But of course I haven't stopped cooking and baking, at least as much as I can manage in these months.  And so I've got pumpkin coffee cake, peppermint ice cream, cranberry bliss bars and other such seasonal goodies and oh wait, it's' January.   Last night I made stuffing...

BEFORE you go do something crazy like pack away all of your pumpkin because you are all set for Thanksgiving with two perfect pumpkin pies hanging out on your counter, take a look at these pancakes.  And leave that pumpkin out! While I like a good pumpkin pancake any day, I've definitely never had one that sparked my interest as much as these.  The pancakes have great texture and that streusel is OUT of this world.  I adore it.  How come no one ever put streusel on pancakes b...

Chocolatey and rich.  Speckled with graham.   Hollowed out little pillows where mallows once nestled and now ooze.     And zucchini.  So that when you open the fridge and realize you are out of ... everything, you can pull two of these out of the freezer, keep your fingers crossed and hope there's enough vegi in them to keep yourself on the "good mother" list when you serve them as breakfast to your toddlers.  Certainly your toddlers will have no recognition of the ...
