breakfast

Now that spring is well underway, it’s time to focus on another all-important and quickly approaching holiday…Mother’s Day! It may seem like it’s a long way off, but in reality, it’s only 2 1/2 weeks away! Now that that has been cleared up, it’s clearly time to start planning celebrations for our mamas. Mother’s Day […]

Cookie Cutter Toast Stamping

by Amy on February 5, 2014

Toast is a breakfast staple around our house – the kids can make it themselves and choose their favorite toppings and spreads. How about an easy and kid-pleasing way to dress-up your morning toast? Just grab some cookie cutters and get stamping! I often use cookie cutters to cut shapes out of bread, especially for […]

Gingerbread Granola

by Amy on December 5, 2013

I like to have a few easy and festive meal ideas up my sleeve for the month of December – something to make an ordinary breakfast, lunch, or dinner a little special. We might make gingerbread boy and girl pizzas, eat dinner by candlelight, or have Santa pancakes on a weekend morning. For another fun […]

Guest post by Casey of Life with Roozle I was a picky eater as a kid. I didn’t like meat or cooked vegetables or anything spicy. I liked food that didn’t have a lot of flavor. My mom had three kids to feed and two were my very hungry older brothers, so my pickiness wasn’t […]

With the end of the harvest season near, I’ve been trying to snatch up the last of the produce from the farmer’s market before the frost sets in. Last weekend, with a chance of snow in the forecast, I gathered up as many tomatoes and zucchini as I could fit in my basket and brought […]

Is it back-to-school time in your house? We’re still trying to hang on to that summer feeling around here for a few more weeks. And, what goes better with summer than a cold, tropical drink? My girls love smoothies, and this delicious and vibrant tropical smoothie is the perfect way to start the day. It […]

Sunday brunch is a well honored tradition in my household. Among the rotation of pancakes and hash browns is an often requested spread consisting of waffles and fruit with a side of sausage. When brunch rolled around this week, I began cooking up our favored meal. After the sausage was cooked and the waffle iron […]

Ham and Cheese Puff Pancake

by Lindsey on January 16, 2013

We have breakfast for dinner about once a week, sometimes more if my husband or I have a lot going on. It’s easy and the kids always enjoy it. This recipe for Ham and Cheese Puff Pancake is something that rolls dinner and breakfast into one. If you don’t have ham, you could definitely use […]

This recipe came on a whim. We have been receiving tons of plums and pluots in our weekly CSA delivery and I thought it would be fun to try something new with them this week. In comes Plum Sauce. And what better to go with a sweet and tart plum sauce than pancakes? They are […]

My husband loves Monkey Bread Muffins. He always begs me to make them. I decided it was time to give them a little twist. I jazzed them up by making Oreo Monkey Bread Muffins. Instead of the traditional cinnamon and sugar muffins, I used crushed up Oreos and white chocolate chips. I also drizzled the […]

I was digging around in my cupboard and happened upon a big container of wheat berries I’d forgotten all about.  We used to eat wheat berries on a regular basis before I became gluten-free.  I love those kinds of surprises–almost as good as finding $20 in your winter coat pocket. (Almost.) I yelled to my […]

I have almost worked through the last of the snowman sugar cookies stashed in my freezer which means a couple of things: The holidaze have come and gone I’m most likely looking fat-tastic (that is not actually a good thing) It’s time to start my New Year’s Resolutions Wait, […]

Loaded Breakfast Quesadillas

by Lindsey on December 22, 2011

Between nagging my kids to get their shoes on and find their backpacks, breakfast time can be hectic and stressful. I’m always trying to think of quick, tummy-filling breakfasts to give them a good start for their day. That goes for school days and school holidays. My kids are out now for 10 days and […]

by Two Peas on October 26, 2011

Every year I try to make the most of the fall months by making as many pumpkin recipes as I can. I am pumpkin obsessed. I can never get enough pumpkin. I recently created a delicious pumpkin breakfast-Pumpkin Quinoa. If you haven’t tried quinoa, you must. Quinoa is a seed that is high in protein and […]

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day, is also my favorite. That’s why I chose it as this week’s theme for today’s post. There are so many yummy breakfast recipes in this week’s M&T Spotlight, I had a hard time only choosing 6. *Next week, I’ll be featuring your DIY Pet Projects, so submit […]

I like to have oatmeal or cereal for breakfast, but sometimes it is nice to have a special treat. Usually, we save breakfast treats for the weekends, but I recently made Pear Muffins with Honey Oat Topping on a weekday to jump start our morning. The muffins are filled with diced pears and topped with […]
