Candy Bar Smoothie

Candy bar smoothie? Is that a thing? Well, yes. And also no. I did not actually put real candy bars in a smoothie. Of course that would be delicious. But it would also probably be more like a milkshake. Which I’m not against. Just not for breakfast. Well, I could definitely be talked into a [...]

Sesame Cherry Granola

I love cherry granola. On yogurt. On oatmeal (yes, sounds weird, but try it!) Or on its own. Sometimes I buy it. But sometimes I make it because I get flavor combos in my head that I can’t find at the store. Like this one. Tart cherries and toasty sesame seeds. Other than those, you [...]

Chai French Toast

I love French toast, but a lot can go wrong in the making of it. It can be too soggy, or not have enough flavor. My least favorite is when the batter is not mixed enough and you end up with something too eggy — blech. So I typically make it myself instead of ordering [...]

High Fiber Cereal Blend

They say breakfast it the most important meal of the day. But it can also be the most frustrating if you’ve got to get out of the house in the morning, especially if you’ve got others to feed. I’ve been making this for years now, and it’s one of my most reliable staples, although I’m [...]

Buttermilk Chocolate Pecan Pancakes

My breakfasts usually consist of smoothies or oatmeal, but occasionally I’ll make pancakes or waffles. Usually when I have overnight guests. The last time I made these fluffy buttermilk pancakes with the addition of dark chocolate chips and toasted pecans. And let me tell you, they were a big hit! These are golden brown, fluffy, [...]

Almond Cacao Nib Smoothie

I love the ease of smoothie. Throw a bunch of healthy stuff in a blender with some ice or frozen fruit, and 9 times out of 10, you have something filling and tasty. It’s a practical way to get a bunch of nutrients that you’re just not going to eat first thing in the morning. [...]

Cheddar Ranch Buttermilk Biscuits

There’s a cafe near me that makes these scallion cheddar biscuits. They are amazing. They closed for a minute due to recent events. So I thought I would try my hand at making them myself. As I was making them, I had a different thought — what about cheddar ranch biscuits instead of scallions? I [...]

Buttermilk Cinnamon Scones

I used to work at a bakery that made scones. Berry, chocolate chip, cranberry, and my favorite: Cinnamon chip. Because there’s not much better than butter and cinnamon, in my opinion. We made batch after batch all day everyday, but I still enjoyed my early morning (4am!) cinnamon scone with fresh coffee. I miss working [...]

Baked PB&J Oatmeal Parfaits

I love oatmeal, and try to eat it as often as I can, but it can get boring fast (side note: why does pizza never get boring?!?) I’m always adding new things to my oats, and have eaten them every way you can imagine: steel cut, rolled, combination, with chocolate, nuts, yogurt. But still, I’ll [...]
