Blueberries ‘n’ Cream Pancakes

I love making breakfast on the weekends. Sitting down to a plate of piping hot eggs, or bacon, or pancakes, or french toast, or all of the above, is just different than sitting down to a cold bowl of Raisin Bran. Especially now, when my husband is gone 14 hours a day and our daughter […]

PB&J Buns

This is the second way that I used up my triple batch of bun dough. I have to admit, I’m not a PB&J lover. But I know a lot of people are, including my husband and toddler, so with one recipe’s worth of bun dough I made some freezer-ready PB&J. I know it’s not that […]

Cinnamon Roll Biscuits

I’m all about yeast dough. But there are somedays you just don’t have the time or energy for that. The proofing, the kneading, the rising, the rolling, the rising…. all the waiting. It’s just too much somedays. I was going to make some biscuits today. Just regular, flour/butter/milk biscuits to go with  a pot of […]

But I hadn’t yet seen a cinnamon cheesecake bun, and I decided I needed to change that. Because I had made a cinnamon roll cheesecake, it just made sense to […]

So, I have to give the credit for this recipe to my almost 2-year-old. For real. I had seen a coffee cake pancake recipe on Pinterest once, but I was turned off because the streusel was mixed up, and then baked in the oven, then the batter was topped with the cooked streusel. It just […]

PB & J Banana Bread

Sometimes I feel like I should make you a quick bread that doesn’t involve bananas. Like maybe you need a little more variety than I do. I am a huge banana bread lover. But I promise I’ll try to break my own mold a little and bring you something entirely different. For now, though, this […]

Strawberry S’more Enchiladas with Warm Vanilla Sauce

I remember when we were growing up, we’d be so excited when mom was making pancakes or waffles for supper. It was like getting away with eating dessert without having to suffer through the rest! I understand now that my mom must have been pretty excited when it was pancakes/waffles-for-dinner night, too, as I now […]
