Buttermilk Biscuits

My son requested biscuits for breakfast over the weekend. I have a “go-to” recipe, but sometimes, I like to mix it up and try something new. This recipe had rave reviews, so I decided to give it a go. I noticed that this was a “drop biscuit” recipe and I’ve never tried one before. I…

Buttermilk Drop Biscuits

My son requested biscuits for breakfast over the weekend. I have a “go-to” recipe, but sometimes, I like to mix it up and try something new. I decided to change things up a bit and reinvented my old recipe.  I usually roll out the dough. When I mixed all of the ingredients together, the dough…

Apple & Olive Oil Cake with Maple Icing

I thought I’d finish off the week with another apple recipe. This one is for a cake. I was intrigued by the title and the picture looked “interesting” (I’m using quotes not as sarcasm, but because I couldn’t think of a better word). I hope epicurious will forgive me because I had to post a…

Margarita Cake Doughnuts with Tequila Glaze

I’m not sure if I mentioned this before, but I’m a tequila girl, so whenever I see the word “margarita”, my eyes immediately light up. I actually tried making doughnuts (or donuts?) a few months ago, but I’m terrible with maintaining consistent oil temperatures in the pot, and I broke my candy thermometer (to lazy…

Banana Coffeecake with Chocolate Chip Streusel

I’ve been in the mood for banana bread ever since I made the banana cake with my own “quick ripe” bananas. You remember, the failed cake? This time I bought a couple of bananas and let them sit on my counter for about a week, so they would be nice and ripe. I couldn’t find…

Buttermilk Pancakes

I first made these pancakes a few years ago for my son’s birthday breakfast.  The recipe was on the packaging for Star Wars pancake molds. I don’t usually try recipes found on product labels, but I made them and they were delicious.  They are the perfect balance of hearty and light.  I fry them in…

Biscuits

This recipe was given to me by a good friend that claimed his girlfriend made the best biscuits. This was further verified by his family (so he says). She was nice enough to share the recipe so I could try it myself. I’m always on the look out for something good, so I was eager…

Bacon & Cheddar Waffle

During my last visit home, my son and I spent the night with one of my best girlfriend’s, so our kids could hang out and we could catch up and have a little girl talk. The next morning we were trying to decide what to make for the kids for breakfast. We thought of waffles,…

Grapefruit Cake

After make the Margarita Cake, I was still in the mood for something citrus-y and wanted to make another cake. I started hunting for blood oranges (because I thought it would be good and possibly add a bit of color), but I was unable to find any at the store, so I settled on ruby red grapefruit….

Vanilla Whoopie Pie

Lately, I’ve seen recipes using rhubarb.  They all looked so pretty and springy, that I was getting the itch to bake with something colorful.   I found an awesome recipe for a rhubarb-ginger crumble and was getting excited. I popped into the market to get the ingredients, but I couldn’t find the rhubarb. I asked an employee,…

Chocolate Chip Scones

Scones are the perfect breakfast item to bake in large batches and keep them individually wrapped in the freezer.
