Fluffy Belgian Waffles…Breakfast for Dinner

I wrote this post as part of my participation in a blog tour on behalf of Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division, the makers of PEPCID®. I received compensation to thank me for taking the time to participate. However, all opinions expressed are my own.   I travel a lot.  As in, […]

Blackberry Cream Cheese French Toast Bake

Have you been to France?  I have.  Several times now. Know how many times I have had French Toast there? Not a single one. I’m not even sure French Toast is French.  I could Google it, but, alas, I am a lazy sort, and I prefer to simply eat it versus Google it. This particular […]

Oreo Stuffed French Toast

As you may be aware, things have been a little stressful around here lately.  But…I’m getting back on my feet, getting out an about, and am steadily remembering that life is for living.  It’s time to be happy. Yes, sad things happen.  Bad things.  But there’s so much good out there too.  There are so […]

The Perfect Blueberry Cream Cheese Muffin…and How a Muffin Can Lead to Forever

I shouldn’t have met Rust. Oh, don’t get me wrong…it’s the best thing I could have hoped for. I’m beyond lucky, I’m happy, and for the first time in a long time, the future seems so promising. Getting up in the morning beats going to sleep every single night. That’s quite a change for me. […]

Cinnamon Apple Pie Pancakes

Two of my favorite things? Breakfast and dessert. If you think about it, breakfast foods are really pretty dessert-like anyway…pancakes, muffins, Danishes, croissants, French toast…they’re all sweet and disguised as a nutritious breakfast. Breakfast is smart, kids. For my March contribution to the world of Krusteaz, I decided to just be forthright and admit – […]

Peanut Butter Breakfasts

When you think peanut butter, do you automatically think dessert (after sandwich, that is?)? I kind of do. It’s rich, it’s sweet. It goes great in brownies or ice cream. But peanut butter can really be for ANY meal. Sure, you can simply spread it on a piece of bread, add a little jelly, and […]

Banana Pudding Pancakes

Seriously…Banana Pudding. My mom and my Aunt Sue both make the best Banana Pudding.  Personally, I have never attempted it, because I fear.  I fear mine will not be near what theirs is – lush, sweet, and bursting with flavor and childhood giddiness. Instead, I wait for potlucks, Thanksgiving, the Fourth of July, and the […]

Mixed Red Berry Pancake Muffins

I should bake and cook with berries more.  I don’t know why I don’t…they are so full of flavor and such vibrant little morsels of goodness.  We used to have a great row of raspberry bushes behind our house…the berries were huge and the seeds were small…and they tasted just like heaven.  I would have […]

Wild Blueberry Cornbread Muffins

New Year, folks. Time to start all over again.  Wash away the old, bring in the new.  But before we can do all that, we have to look at ourselves with fervor, and demand answers to our own questions.  The hard truth, the questions  we struggle to answer. For example…What kind of cornbread lover are […]
