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…

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…

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…

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…

My Top 5 Recipes for January 2018


Every last Saturday of the month I gather my top 3-5 recipes from the month. Sometimes they are older recipes that people have come back to look for or new ones that I have made during the month. This month definitely had a comfort food feel about it and my top recipes are definite comfort…

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes


There was a video on Facebook and on Pinterst last year showing pancakes similar to these that looked so simple to make. Now they were perfect little cinnamon roll looking but I haven’t been able to make them like they do. We adapted this recipe for us and it works. They are not beautiful but…

Cream Cheese French Toast Casserole


My daughter had her friends over the other night for their annual Christmas sleepover. They have done this the past five years. It has changed some in size but the one thing they always have is laughter. We loved listening to them laugh and giggle. A friend recently wrote about how that last time you…
