Valentine’s Day Breakfast Idea: Heart-Shaped Egg in a Nest

Egg in a Heart

I’ve written about Egg in a Nest before, but I decided it was time to revisit this breakfast classic just in time for Valentine’s Day. I felt like making something fun for breakfast this past weekend and since February is the month of heart-shaped food (at least in the world of food blogs), I decided to break out my heart-shaped cookie cutter to create Eggs in a Heart for breakfast!

Pumpkin Spice Cake Recipe

I made this on a whim late last night and it was still cooling when I went to bed. Since the recipe was completely improvised, I had no idea if it was successful until I woke up this morning. So when I rolled out of bed (way too early), the first thing I did was cut into the cake! Continue reading →

Buttermilk Cranberry Scones Recipe

I’m sitting here on this beautiful Sunday morning eating the best scone I’ve ever made in my life.  Days like this are bittersweet.  On one hand, there’s almost nothing better than a lazy Sunday morning spent baking and lounging in my pajamas.  But what’s the fun in eating such a wonderful treat, when there’s no one to share it with?

Curried Turkey Salad with Apples, Cranberries and Walnuts

Although I haven’t roasted a turkey yet this season, I’ve been enjoying the occasional roasted turkey breast from grocery store deli.  I love turkey sandwiches and when my husband is away, a roasted turkey breast or rotisserie chicken from the grocery store up the street is the perfect thing to keep me fed for a few days.

A Portable Omelette: Southwest Style Egg Muffins Recipe

One of my many favorites from Kalyn’s Kitchen is her popular recipe for Egg Muffins. Egg muffins aren’t really muffins at all, they are more like mini omelettes baked in muffin cups.  Turning the omelettes into  ‘muffins’ makes them portable and easy to eat on the run.  The great thing about these egg muffins is that they can be made in advance and heated up in the microwave on your way out the door.  Brilliant!

Sweet Potato Biscuits with Bacon and Thyme Recipe

Before last night, I had never even tasted a sweet potato biscuit. But they’ve been on my list of new foods to try for a few months now. I’ve been collecting links to sweet potato biscuit recipes and have noticed that there is a pretty wide range of recipes.

Some people make a very sweet biscuit, using lots of mashed sweet potato and sugar.  My husband, who has a major sweet tooth, would love this version from Pots on the Stove. While others seem to prefer just a slightly sweet, buttery version, like these from Orangette. Continue reading →

Banana Muffins Filled with Cream Cheese? Yes We Can!

Cream Cheese Filled Banana Muffins

So I tried this experiment yesterday.

There have been a couple of extra ripe bananas staring me down for a couple of days.  I mean, it was getting ugly.  So last night I was forced to make an important decision: bake something or throw the poor things in the freezer where they would probably get lost for a very long time.
