Farmers Casserole


Trying to keep these long days free and avoiding the kitchen as much as possible? This casserole is great! You can make it in the morning (or the night before if you want to cook it for breakfast). Let it rest while you are at work and pop it in the oven 55 minutes before…

Chocolate Chip Pancakes


As things wind down to the end of the month we are all hoping that life will finally slow to a dull roar. We have Irish Fest next weekend and then just our usual summer business. We are all hoping for some rejuvenating rest before gearing up for the heart of summer. My daughter has…

Oreo Pancakes


I hope you know by know if you have read any of my prior posts we love fun dinners every so often. As I served this last night my son kept asking, “Is it dinner? Is it dessert? Can it be breakfast?”  I say yes to all of them! Verdict: These are rich, hearty pancakes….

Dessert for Dinner! Funfetti Waffles


Eat dessert first. Not a concept that I follow but sometimes I love to mix things up with the kids. So, we had dessert for dinner. Funfetti waffles were super easy and the kids thought they were fun. Verdict: This recipe makes about six waffles so if you are making them for a teen sleepover…

Sweet Potato Corned Beef Hash


We love Corned Beef. I buy 4 or 5 during March when they are on sale and keep them in the freezer to pull out at different times to make all kinds of delicious dishes the rest of the year. The other night we pulled out one of the brisket and cooked it in the slow…

French Toast Breakfast Casserole


I have tried different versions of this recipe from Rachel Ray and others but have never really thought it was AMAZING. It  was either too dry, too sweet, or just to blah. I was determined to figure out why people loved this dish so much. I didn’t want to wait 8 hours to cook it…

Pesto Breakfast Pizza


Last night was the first time since sometime in March that we were all home before 8 pm. It was so nice to have all four of us sitting down around the table to eat together. We know it isn’t going to happen again for a few weeks but it was so nice to be…

Garden Grill (Breakfast)


If you are planning a meal while visiting Disney World and looking for great character interaction this was one of our favorites on this trip. Though we are NOT breakfast eaters and generally do not enjoy breakfast foods I decided to book us a breakfast at the Garden Grill to get us up and moving…

Yummy Blueberry Pancakes


One of the last items left from our No Buy January was a bag of farm fresh blueberries from our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share last summer. My daughter had a friend spend the night over the weekend so I made blueberry pancakes for the girls to use them up! Verdict: These were really good….

Breadmaker Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing


For those of you dieting in the New Year my apologies but these were too good not to share! I dusted off the breadmaker the other day to make these Cinnamon Rolls. Yes, I said dusted off. My breadmaker used to be the second most used small appliance in my kitchen after my slow cooker…

Bacon, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Pizza


There was a restaurant back in Rochester, New York that we used to call for breakfast pizzas to be made for special occasions. We had them for teacher recognition breakfasts, family brunches and sleepover breakfasts. Since we moved we have not found anything similar. I have thought about making them several times over the years…

Eggnog Pancakes


It is eggnog season. Eggnog is one of those things many either really love or really hate. As a drink, I do not like it at all. But, as a flavoring I like it. It is the nutmeg/cinnamon flavors I like. My kids love it and make the recipe from The Betty Crocker Kid’s Cookbook (click…
