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…

Chocolate Chip Scones


I love scones. They are so simple to make and can be made in so many different ways. Sweet, savory, or even plain are all good. We made these for a simple Sunday morning breakfast. The kids were surprised at how simple they really are to make and with a nice cup of tea or…

Bread Machine Bagels


Since we have moved to the Midwest there are certain foods from New York that we miss. We have been able to bring some of them to Michigan with us when we go back and stock up at Wegman’s. Spiedie sauce, Grandma Brown’s Beans, salt potatoes, Zweigle’s and Hoffman Hot Dogs, or Croghan Bologna are…

Orange Cake with Orange Glaze


My partner talks about an orange cake she used to ask for every year for her birthday. She doesn’t remember the recipe other than she thinks it was made with an orange cake mix and orange juice. Every so often I try to find a recipe she will like (without the cake mix) for an…

Baked Coffee Cake Doughnuts


When I was at Joann Fabrics a couple of months ago they had Wilton doughnut pans on the clearance racks. I love clearance sales but I thought this will be something I can actually use! Notice I said, months ago? I finally pulled it out of the cupboard to make doughnuts for brunch and the…

Sunday Cinnamon Rolls


Why do I call these Sunday Cinnamon Rolls? Because that is the day we always make them on! We don’t often have a lazy Sunday morning to make these but a couple of times a year we spend the couple of hours to make the dough, roll it out, make the filling, bake the rolls….

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…

Eggnog Waffles


December is the season of eggnog. I am NOT a fan of eggnog at all but I love the cinnamon and nutmeg flavor combination.  I think the combination of flavors works perfectly in these waffles. Not too much nutmeg but enough cinnamon to bring out the flavor of eggnog. Verdict: My daughter had a friend…

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…
