How to Make Granola

How To Make Granola

So I have now been sitting at my computer for a good hour or so. Trying to figure out what to write about this delicious granola recipe I put together this week. And.... nothing. Writer's block. Blogger's block. Block. Arg. Funny thing is that I really want to talk about this recipe. It's amazing. It


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 [...]


Easy Coffee Cake with Streusel Topping and Maple Glaze

Coffee cake is one of those tricky pastries that can either leave you craving more or slowly trying to swallow the dry crumbs of over-baked potential. Either way, I can't seem to keep myself from loving the stuff -- good or bad. I suppose my cravings for coffee cake persist because I can't ever find [...]


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 [...]


Banana Bread

Did you know that February 23rd (last Thursday) was National Banana Bread Day? I didn't either. Since we moved, Dustin has been asking me to make some banana bread. So, once I found out about National Banana Bread Day, I knew what I had to do. Funny thing is -- I didn't really know when [...]


Pumpkin Spice Muffins

I said in my recent post on How To Make Pumpkin Puree that I'd share my Pumpkin Spice Muffin recipe, so here it is! Especially this time of year, I love a good pumpkin muffin. For me, there's something very special about the combination of pumpkin, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.  (Um...and a latte at [...]


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 [...]
