Country Sausage and Biscuits


First, I want to thank all of you that took the time to say you were thinking or praying for my family. My mother came home from the hospital and is now getting stronger. Her heart rate seems to be under control, she could not feel it racing up to 160 beats per minute so…

Pumpkin Muffins


While I am taking care of my family I have a few recipes in reserve that are family favorites. I hope you enjoy. You may already know I am NOT a fan of the pumpkin spice overload. I think it is way overdone and I especially don’t like the artificial pumpkin taste and smell in…

Chick-fil-A Like Breakfast Bowls


I am on the Chick-fil-A Moms Panel once again this year. I have been a member for the past four years. What this means is that if Chick-fil-A wants a moms opinions on kids meals, dishes, new ideas, etc. they come to us with surveys and samples. We also are there to help promote community…

Breakfast Sliders


My family loves breakfast for dinner every once in a while. I like breakfasts for dinner because they tend to be super easy and everyone loves it! These sliders are a take off on several other sliders I have made including Meatball sliders, Reuben sliders (one of my most popular recipes to date), and of…

New York Style Coffee Cake with LOTS of Crumb Topping


My daughter had her annual back-to-school sleepover the other night. This will most likely be the last one as they are all going into their senior year. I am holding out hope for one last one next year before they all go away to college but they just don’t know. The nice thing is that…

Maple Glazed Tea Donuts


I am not a fan of breakfast. I like breakfast foods for dinner but I am not a breakfast eater. A cup of coffee and maybe a piece of toast, once in a while, and I am happy. But, occasionally on the weekends we make something special for breakfast. These Maple Tea Donuts are fairly…

Fluffy Greek Yogurt Blueberry Pancakes


It is the beginning of blueberry season here in Michigan.  Which means in our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share we are getting 2-3 pints of blueberries each week. My children love to eat them right from the container but I save one out just to make blue berry pancakes with. As I was looking through…

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…

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…
