Parmesan Thyme Scone

What I made: Parmesan Thyme Scone Original recipe or did I make it myself? I made it myself!  I adapted it from another scone recipe I already had. A savory scone for breakfast? Why not?  I was inspired by a scone from Wydown, a great little coffee shop near my house.  My bf/fiancé and I like…

Drunken Cheesy Bread

What I made: Drunken Cheesy Bread Original Recipe or did I make it myself? I adapted the recipe slightly from Real Simple.  I’ve had the recipe in my binder for years. Am I going to get drunk from this recipe? No!  The alcohol cooks out, but you are left with a nice delicate wine flavor. …

Bourbon Brioche French Toast

Contrary to my numerous boozy food posts, I don’t have it readily available at home. Every now and then, I’ll have a bottle of bourbon around for a Manhattan or an Old Fashioned cocktail, and when I do, I can’t resist a boozy recipe. Recently, I had a bottle in the house, and thought it…

Buttermilk Biscuits with Honey Butter

I have to admit that I’m not very loyal when it comes to biscuit recipes. While I do have a personal preference for buttermilk biscuit recipes, or any recipe that calls for buttermilk, I still lack that “go-to” recipe. This recipe for buttermilk biscuits with honey butter from my epicurious recipe box may change my…

Martha’s Blueberry Muffins

Lately, I’ve been craving my old fav, the blueberry muffin. Specifically, Martha’s blueberry muffins. I made it often when I was a stay at home in Chicago.  It is a cross between a breakfast bread, and dessert. I haven’t made it in a long time, and was feeling a bit rusty. I had every intention…

Carrot Muffins

I had a bag of baby carrots left over from my son’s birthday hiding at the back of the fridge, and on the verge of becoming icky. I’ve never made a carrot cake before, but I didn’t have all the ingredients to make it, and was way too lazy to run to the market. I…

Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes

It’s Monday and I’m toiling away at the office, but I can only think of the blueberry cornmeal pancakes I made over the weekend. I still had blueberries left over from my blueberry cornbread recipe. I was really in the mood for blueberry pancakes but didn’t want to make traditional ones. I found a recipe…

Sausage and Cheddar Biscuits

It’s the weekend, and you’re low on funds, yet you still want a good-ish breakfast. What do you do? You grab a leftover tube of sage sausage and cheddar cheese scraps, and make these sausage and cheddar biscuits. I found the recipe on King Arthur Flour’s website and decided to give it a try. The…

Sausage Egg and Cheese Sandwich

When I was a stay at home mom, Miles would wake up to a homemade breakfast all most every morning. The only exception was when he wanted cereal. Now that I’m a single mom working full time, it’s toast every day. Sometimes I’ll batch cook waffles or scones, but it’s usually just the toast. Today…

Chocolate Chip Scones

When Miles was younger I would make him chocolate chip muffins in large batches, wrap them individually, and keep them in the freezer for him to eat for breakfast before school. Now that he’s older, I’ve gotten slightly more sophisticated and upgraded to chocolate chip scones. This actually started out as a biscuit recipe, but…

Cornmeal Waffle

Breakfast for dinner is one of my favorite dinners. Waffles were on the menu, but I didn’t want another buttermilk waffle. Enter the cornmeal waffle. Would it taste like a breakfast corn muffin? Hearty like cornbread you would eat with chili? I was hoping for something in between. I wanted my cornmeal waffle to still…

Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Biscuit

I’m going to file this bacon and cheese stuffed biscuit recipe under quick and easy.  I hit the ground running this weekend, starting laundry before I even made breakfast. I had to run to the market for detergent mid load and tried to think of what I could make quickly for breakfast.  I grabbed a…
