Egg Nog French Toast

While running a few weeks ago we were talking about food, of course, and what we were going to make over the holidays. One of my friends described an egg nog French toast dish that she makes every year for Christmas. I love egg nog, but always have some left over. This sounded so good, […]

Apple Cider Muffins

I stumbled across a cookbook by the owner of Foster’s Market in Durham. I’ve heard about this place but haven’t had a chance to check it out even though it’s only an hour away. The photographs were beautiful which made it hard for me to pass up. Cookbooks are my weakness. It seems like someone […]

Quiche with Figs

I love the creamy texture of eggs mixed with cream but sometimes I just can’t get that consistency I’m looking for. A friend of mine shared her secret for making quiche which is to make it by volume, keeping your proportions the same regardless of how many eggs you are using or their size For […]

Mimosa Monkey Bread on a platter

Mimosa Monkey Bread

I didn’t get coffee cake last week on National Coffee Cake day, but I would have chosen this Streusel Coffee Cake which is my favorite. Instead, I thought I would share a recipe I made over the Holidays when I had a house full of people. The conversation of Mimosa’s came up. Where I live, […]

Baked Eggs with Mushrooms

Baked Eggs with Mushrooms

While overnight breakfast casseroles are great, like my favorite, Blueberry French Toast, I wanted something a little lighter that I could mostly prepare in advance for some overnight guests. These were a perfect choice, full of flavor from the mushroom mixture, but not dried out like some egg dishes can be. I prepared the mushrooms […]

For those that don’t know me, I’m a runner and am always making sure I try to get lots of protein. Lately, I’ve been trying to do so without eating as many carbs. If you’re tired of scrambled or fried eggs, this is a great way to get that extra protein and no utensils required. […]

Baked Apple Pancake

Baked Apple Pancake

I had the opportunity to attend the blogher food conference in Chicago a few weeks ago. It was my first blogging conference and I wasn’t sure what to expect. There were about 600 people so it was easy to feel lost in the crowd. However, food bloggers are so friendly that it didn’t take long […]

Prosciutto Cups

Prosciutto Cups

My weekdays are pretty hectic, so I tend to eat the same thing each morning before heading out the door. But the weekends are all about having a more relaxed breakfast savoring a cup of tea. A thin slice of prosciutto turns a sometimes heavy quiche into a light and savory breakfast. They are so […]

Carrot Cake Pancakes

I can’t let fall go by without posting a recipe using pumpkin pie spice. It seems every post you see is featuring this ingredient. So when I had three college girls come over for breakfast last weekend, I tried these fall inspired pancakes on them. They were just a little more trouble to prepare than […]

Spicy Pear Muffins

Spicy Pear Muffins

While apples are so plentiful and pumpkin spice is all the rage, the pear is often neglected. Since it’s so much juicier than an apple, they make an unbelievably moist muffin. Not only are they moist, but crystalized ginger adds a slightly sweet and spicy flavor. Since I only like raw ginger in very small […]
