Pumpkin Bread French Toast


There was a little diner near where we used to live that served amazing French toast. I am not a big fan of the soggy white bread French toast but this French toast was made with all different kinds of breads. Brioche, sweet breads such as cinnamon roll or pecan bread. Even savory breads were…

Egg Sandwiches on Brioche Rolls


I am planning an August vacation for us. We are NOT going to Disney! (gasp). We have decided to combine a dance competition for my daughter with a trip to Branson, Missouri. I had won a contest for a couple of nights hotel stay, some concert tickets, and gift cards. Then I won a second…

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


It is the start of a holiday weekend here in the United States. Memorial Day, celebrated the fourth Monday in May, is to honor all of the service members who have died while serving in the Armed Forces.

Quiche Lorraine


Yesterday afternoon while I was in a meeting gas prices rose $.24 to $3.09 a gallon. I was shocked. I knew it was coming but the reality felt like a gut punch. I drive a couple hundred miles a week. It cuts into our budget. So, even less dinners out now. Quiche Lorraine is one…

When I go out-of-town my partner makes these great meals for the kids. Salads and bowls with quinoa, sauces, etc… to try to keep them somewhat healthy.

Happy Easter! Top 5 Recipes for March 2018


What a week it has been. I overestimated what being away and working 12 hour days would do to me. I thought for sure I could keep up my blog while away and have no problem. Boy, was I wrong. But, I am home now and having a wonderful day with my family. I hope…

French Toast Pancakes


We are a house divided, on French Toast that is. Two really like it and the other two are, meh, we will eat it if we have to. I know a large part of why we don’t like it is that I tend to use substandard bread to make the French toast. You need a…

Chocolate Chip Scones


I love scones. They are so simple to make and can be made in so many different ways. Sweet, savory, or even plain are all good. We made these for a simple Sunday morning breakfast. The kids were surprised at how simple they really are to make and with a nice cup of tea or…
