Simple Corned Beef Hash with Eggs


If you have read some of my blog posts you may know that may family loves corned beef. Around St. Patrick’s Day I buy 3-5 briskets to keep in the freezer to have over the next several months. This past weekend we put one in the slow cooker with some beer and I saved enough…

Breakfast Sausage Sliders


Saturday morning breakfasts usually are rather simple in our house. We are usually running to some place or other. But, this week we had NOTHING! I had a package of Hawaiian rolls to use up so I picked up a roll of breakfast sausage to make some breakfast sandwiches for the kids. They were a…

Super Simple Chocolate Pancakes with Butter Cream Filling


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. She goes away for the weekend and I want chocolate pancakes! So, my kids got chocolate pancakes the other night for dinner. A while back I made Oreo…

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…

Bread Machine Bagels


Since we have moved to the Midwest there are certain foods from New York that we miss. We have been able to bring some of them to Michigan with us when we go back and stock up at Wegman’s. Spiedie sauce, Grandma Brown’s Beans, salt potatoes, Zweigle’s and Hoffman Hot Dogs, or Croghan Bologna are…

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….
