Apple Pancakes


As we get closer to Thanksgiving I am trying to keep dinner easy and lighter. These pancakes are simple and let me keep planning and cleaning for the holidays. We will be gone over Thanksgiving. My daughter is dancing in Oireachtas (o-ROCK-tus) Irish dance regionals in Kentucky so we will be traveling on Thanksgiving day….

Potato Scramble Bowl with Variations


I hope you can all be a bit patient with me the next few weeks. I knocked my computer off my desk the other day and broke the point where it connects to the charger. So, until I can see if they can fix it I am learning to post on my phone and try…

Breakfast Pizza with Hashbrown Crust


We have been having breakfast for dinner quite often lately. Eggs have been on sale from $.45 to $.88 a dozen.  Breakfast sausage was on sale a few weeks ago so I picked up several rolls and cheese has been $1.49 for 8 oz. Perfect! Lots of casseroles and now breakfast pizza. Verdict: I have…

Slow Cooker Stuffed French Toast


  Getting back to using our slow cooker again as the temperatures finally start to drop. It was 39 degrees last night. Still not cold enough to kill all the mosquitos. We are in one of the centers of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) in the country. As the lake levels have risen over the last…

Breakfast Sandwiches with Sausage Gravy


We love to have breakfast for dinner about once a week. They had breakfast sausage and eggs on sale this week so of course we needed to have eggs and sausage. My kids love breakfast sandwiches and we decided to switch them up a bit by adding a layer of sausage gravy to the English…

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…
