Baked Coffee Cake Doughnuts


When I was at Joann Fabrics a couple of months ago they had Wilton doughnut pans on the clearance racks. I love clearance sales but I thought this will be something I can actually use! Notice I said, months ago? I finally pulled it out of the cupboard to make doughnuts for brunch and the…

French Fry Breakfast Casserole


This is to use up the few last remaining pieces from our basket for No Buy January! Remember I said at the end of the month if I had anything left in my freezer I put it in a basket and had to use it by the end of next week. So, the zesty curly…

German Oven Pancake


I did a bit of digging to find out what is the difference between a Dutch Baby and German Pancakes. This is more a hybrid between the two dishes. The Dutch Baby has the same basic ingredients as this dish but is to be prepared in a special pan. The German Pancake is similar but…

Sunday Cinnamon Rolls


Why do I call these Sunday Cinnamon Rolls? Because that is the day we always make them on! We don’t often have a lazy Sunday morning to make these but a couple of times a year we spend the couple of hours to make the dough, roll it out, make the filling, bake the rolls….

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes


There was a video on Facebook and on Pinterst last year showing pancakes similar to these that looked so simple to make. Now they were perfect little cinnamon roll looking but I haven’t been able to make them like they do. We adapted this recipe for us and it works. They are not beautiful but…

Cream Cheese French Toast Casserole


My daughter had her friends over the other night for their annual Christmas sleepover. They have done this the past five years. It has changed some in size but the one thing they always have is laughter. We loved listening to them laugh and giggle. A friend recently wrote about how that last time you…

Eggnog Waffles


December is the season of eggnog. I am NOT a fan of eggnog at all but I love the cinnamon and nutmeg flavor combination.¬† I think the combination of flavors works perfectly in these waffles. Not too much nutmeg but enough cinnamon to bring out the flavor of eggnog. Verdict: My daughter had a friend…

Toad in a Hole


My daughter couldn’t wait for me to share this with you. This is her favorite lunch to make right now. I think because it is so simple and she can easily make it herself. She does NOT like the smell of meat cooking or cold sandwiches so to her this is a great compromise. She…

Pumpkin Waffles


Last night we had over 200 trick or treaters! That is unusual for us. We usually have about 100-150. It was extra cold this year 38 degrees and overcast so I thought maybe we would get 100. I bought some candy to give away and some of our favorites to have leftovers. We ended up…

Pumpkin Roll Pancakes with Sweet Cream Cheese Filling


Is it dessert? Is it dinner? Why yes it is! Have you seen the pumpkin rolls with the cream cheese filling? This is a take-off on that idea. No, it is NOT the same recipe so the pancakes are a bit more pumpkin bread like so it is not as sweet but the filling is…
