I love oatmeal in just about every shape and form. The first time I tried overnight oats was on a girls trip. My friend volunteered to bring these for us for breakfast! I was so excited for a hot steaming jar of "overnight oats"...but when she handed me a chilled jar of oatmeal I was shocked! My shock quickly turned into happiness as I devoured the entire jar that morning. Smooth creamy oats, sweetened with honey, vanilla almond milk and banana. Chia seeds + our favorite toppings make . . .
I don't know about you - but pancakes are a favorite around my house. My boys all LOVE pancakes and ask for them morning, noon, and night. As a kid I also loved a good pancake. My mom loves to tell the story about how I consumed only pancakes and hotdogs for the first 3 years of my life. I still like pancakes, but a few hot dogs per year is all I can handle. Homemade Mini Pancakes I was inspired to create this recipe after spending a small fortune on packages of store-bought frozen . . .
We are so excited for this Mother's Day giveaway! My most favorite part about being a mom is all the time I have to cook and bake for myself, and eat my meals when they're piping hot out of the oven. NOT. I wanted to create something that I can grab on-the-go, that will fill me up, and not make me eat again in an hour. These strawberry bran muffins are the most delicious ticket, I promise. I made Kadee's Mimi's Cafe Honey Bran Muffins for my sister who just had a baby last month and we . . .
Strawberry season is just getting started and I have a strawberry shortcake recipe that will leave you wondering how you have been without it all this time! This is a true shortcake recipe in that it is a quick, sweet biscuit-like cake that is crumbly and with a little sugary crunch filled with strawberry puree and sweet cream! It really is as heavenly as it sounds. Strawberry shortcakes make a great summer dessert that is light and sweet. Or, if you are in the mood, they make a fantastic . . .
Growing up my mom would make these butterscotch pull apart on Christmas morning and on Easter morning. They were always a perfect perfect special addition to her egg soufflé. Make-Ahead Breakfast I love to serve these for brunches and baby showers too! They are a make ahead food, so you aren't scrambling during the hustle bustle, but end up with a delicious dish. Use frozen rolls as a base. I prefer the Rhodes brand, but have found them difficult to find these days. They really are . . .
With Easter morning around the corner, I thought I would share our breakfast tradition of egg souffle. I've shared this recipe on the blog before, but wanted to pull it forward for the upcoming holiday. Holiday Traditions Growing up my mom would ALWAYS make this meal on Easter and Christmas morning. As an adult I've continued this tradition and always look forward to that little reminder of home on the holidays. Not only is this meal special and delicious - but all the work in done the . . .
We DO like Green Eggs and Ham...Waffle Sandwich, that is! Aren't you tired of oatmeal or toast? Let's try something new for breakfast, shall we? Brunch? Brinner? Trust me, it all works. Crispy Waffles I have been on the hunt for the perfect, crispy waffle for YEARS. Years, my friends. We have a delicious, healthy, hearty recipe for Oatmeal Waffles on here, but I wanted something simple and light and crisp--you know, the guilty kind with absolutley no health benefits. I've tried folding in . . .
I have been a long time fan of Mimi's honey bran muffins. Each time I dine there I HAVE to get one. And sometimes a second one to-go! Sadly, I no longer live near a mimi's so my craving for these muffins has gotten out of control. I've been itching to come up with Benefits of Bran Some people turn their noses up when they hear the word "bran", but I promise that you will LOVE these muffins. They are sweet, tasty, moist, and full of fiber for your belly. Bran is a wonderful ingredient to add . . .
Baked cake doughnuts. They come together in a cinch, like muffins, (or muffins or muffins) but look like you woke up at the crack of dawn to make FRIED cake doughnuts. Tired of typical Valentine's treats? Then whip these up with the rugrats and they'll love getting sprinkles and coconut all over your kitchen. They'll even lick up the mess for you. Promise. . . .
Okay you guys. I have a love hate relationship with French Toast. I'm not a huge egg fan so often when I order french toast at restaurants I am disspointed when there is sooo much egg on them. I just can't eat it like that. This baked French toast recipe has lots of eggs in it, but doesn't have that "eggy" taste to it. It is so moist and flavorful, this recipe is one of my go-to's. It's easy to whip up at night, throw in the refrigerator. Let it sit overnight and all the flavors and juices . . .
