Fluffy Chocolate Chip Pancakes


Breakfast for dinner can be super easy meal and rather inexpensive too. Making pancakes from scratch with flour, sugar, eggs, and milk that you probably have on hand and don’t have to go out and buy expensive ingredients for makes meals cost less to make. Verdict: These super simple pancakes were light and fluffy but…

Sweet Potato Corned Beef Hash


For me breakfast for dinner means a super simple meal. I love sweet potato hash but it always seems so difficult to make. It’s not. It is all in my head. I still had 3 corned beef stashed in my freezer from St. Patrick’s Day so I pulled one out the other day and cooked…

When All Else Fails: Pancakes


Last night’s dinner was to be Chicken Tetrazinni. As you can see this is NOT Chicken Tetrazinni. I had all the ingredients for Chicken Tetrazinni. In fact we had gone to the store to buy the whole milk, cream, and Parmesan cheese to make the Chicken Tetrazinni. But, I did not want it. Yes, I…

Country Egg and Sausage Breakfast Casserole


The cold has broken and it was over a 90 degree temperature change between yesterday and last week. Things are getting slushy so we are trying to get everything up and off the driveway and sidewalks so that it doesn’t freeze. At least it is warm enough now to do this. End of the month…

Joy of Cooking Pancakes


Some nights dinner needs to be easy and be comforting. We are getting ready for some icy, rain, sleet combination tonight. Getting ready means that we pull everyone home and cancel all plans. We have a fire in the fireplace and finding all the candles in the house, just in case. We stopped at the…

Buttermilk Waffles


My daughter’s friends are home from college for Christmas break. She is thrilled.  One thing they have done every year since they were in 7th grade is get together for a “Christmas Party” sleepover. This year it was a bit after Christmas but they all were still here. We made a waffle bar for dinner….

Chunky Monkey Pancakes


One of my daughter’s favorite ice creams is Chunky Monkey. A banana flavored ice cream with chocolate pieces in it. As I was trying to come up with a new pancake flavor to make this is what was what we had ingredients for.  We are still trying to get dinner on the table as often…

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…

Homemade Pumpkin Bread


Using up all my canned goods before it is time to stock up again for fall has many benefits such as this delicious pumpkin bread. The best thing about it is that it makes 2 LARGE loaves so we had one to eat and one for dinner the next night. Yes! Dinner! I cannot wait…

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…

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…
