Chocolate, Banana & Peanut Butter Protein Shake

I don't know about you, but I have never been one for protein shakes.  It always seemed to me they were intentionally bad for some reason. I can even remember trying Dustin's shakes on occasion and thinking, "Who would want to drink this?" Now that I understand the reason for having a high protein breakfast [...]


Quick Diner Pancakes

For as long as I can remember, I've absolutely loved pancakes. Blueberry pancakes.  Buttermilk pancakes.  Mickey Mouse pancakes.  Pancakes for breakfast.  Pancakes for lunch.  Pancakes for dinner.  Pancakes for snacks. Well I suppose you get the point.  Banana pancakes. Okay, I think I'm done now. One thing that always bugged me was that I couldn't [...]


Chicken Fried Steak

I know, I know... I said I'd lay off the Breakfast posts for a while.  After the Crepes and the Hash Browns and the Corned Beef Hash.  Jeez. But, for whatever reason, I just can't. I love breakfast.  Apparently. The sad thing is I didn't even realize this was going to be a breakfast post [...]


Corned Beef Hash

I remember the first time I had corned beef hash... I was probably 10 or 11.  We (my parents and brother) were camping in our RV on vacation. My dad cooked us all breakfast one morning while we sat around the table.  He made corned beef hash and eggs. Not from scratch, however, but out [...]


Hash Browns

I'm recognizing a very clear pattern in my last several recipes on this blog. Apparently, I'm craving a very large and hearty breakfast. I've posted about crepes, biscuits and gravy and now hash browns. And my next post will be on my Homemade Corned Beef Hash! Jeez. And, well, yum! I love Breakfast. I'd say [...]



It really amuses me just how easy some things are. Well...once I realize how easy they are, that is. For some reason, I've always thought making crepes would be super difficult. But, then I started looking into their ingredients. How could something be difficult that was made up of such simple ingredients? If you're anything [...]

Sausage Gravy

You didn't think I'd leave you without a tasty gravy recipe after my last post on Easy Buttermilk Biscuits, did you? As you can probably imagine, there's no shortage of Biscuits and Gravy out here in Texas. Sadly, though, there seems to be a shortage of good Biscuits and Gravy. Too often, it seems, Dustin [...]

Huevos Rancheros

When I was a kid, we spent a lot of time down in Baja, California. We would visit during long weekend trips and holiday vacations. Looking back, it seems my parents packed my brother and me up and drove us down to Mexico every possible chance they could get. Though I have many fond memories [...]

Homemade Breakfast Burritos

Dustin and I have searched far and wide for a good breakfast burrito. This has been harder than you might think. We found it once in the back of a hole-in-the-wall liquor store in Carpinteria.  Man, those were good!  Greasy, but delicious. Sadly, we live so very far away now and can no longer get [...]
