Quick & Easy No-Mess Bacon


Mmmmm....bacon. If you've ever avoided making bacon because you just didn't feel like dealing with the greasy mess left behind, this post might just change your life.  You see, my husband was the exact same way.  He loved eating bacon, but didn't love cooking it.  It was just too much cleanup. And then two years [...]

Luckily these yummy freezer breakfast cupcakes [...]

Orange Almond Poppyseed Loaf


There are plenty of wonderful recipes out there that are downright delicious.  And then there are those rare treats that rise above "delicious" to some exclusive higher category, officially known as "Food Crack."  Like a drug, you know it counts as food crack when no matter how much you eat, you just can't get enough, [...]

Easy Breakfast Casserole


When I was growing up my family didn't have a whole lot of traditions, but on birthdays we always had breakfast casserole.  Always. And it rocked!

Skinny Pumpkin Bread


There is just something about fall. Come September I am ready for boots and sweaters and a whole lot of coziness.  I crave maple syrup and hot apple cider and soup of all kinds. And pumpkin.  Oh, how I crave pumpkin! This year, since I am still *trying* to be good, I thought I would [...]

Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey Lemon & Mint Syrup {Recipe}


There's no better compliment to a simple brunch or barbecue menu than a delicious fruit salad.  While fruit salad can be as simple as cutting up your favorite types of fruit and placing it in a bowl, adding just a touch of homemade syrup seems to intensify the flavors of the fresh fruit, making it [...]

Fresh Veggie Egg Scramble {Recipe}


I am so sad that today is our last day of the Worden Farm season!  (SW Florida residents, don't miss the FREE Prospective Member Event happening this afternoon!)  We have SO enjoyed our overabundance of fresh veggies for the past 20 weeks, and we will be counting the days until the new season begins next [...]

Overnight French Toast {with Warm Maple Butter Syrup}


I've made a version of this amazingly decadent french toast recipe for so many different gatherings--and shared it with so many of my friends over the years--that I honestly can't believe I haven't posted it here until now.  It is absolutely delicious yet super simple to make and practically fool-proof.

I had a totally different recipe planned to share with you this week, but then I made these cinnamon roll waffles on Saturday and I knew I had to share them with y’all ASAP!    I honestly don’t think I have ever seen my kids eat so fast or so much for breakfast!  Healthy, they [...]

Homemade Dutch Babies


Oh, Dutch do I love thee?  All that buttery goodness, clumps of powdered sugar, crispy crust and light-but-dense center, drizzled with real maple syrup and oozing with down-home goodness.  Honestly, although my family likes a lot of different things, there is truly only one dish that can make all four of us downright giddy [...]

Sometime last winter I found canned pumpkin on clearance at Walgreeens.  It made the perfect "filler" item to complete my multiple transactions, so I stocked up and bought all the cans they had left.  I'm so happy fall is finally here so I can start to use it!  (I am incapable of eating pumpkin anything [...]

How to Make Perfect Scrambled Eggs


My husband is normally the breakfast maker in our house, but there are a couple of things that only I can make.  One is Dutch Babies.  The other is really, really, really good scrambled eggs. I mean really good. Make-you-want-to-cry good. Okay, maybe you won't cry, but still.  They're good.  I promise. Scrambled eggs are [...]

Refrigerator Raisin Bran Muffins


These refrigerator bran muffins--a family recipe shared by my amazing Auntie Lois--are an all-time favorite in my house.  They are SO yummy!  The recipe makes a huge batch, but the batter stores in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.  It is perfect for busy mornings because we can spoon out just what we need [...]
