MY Tuesdays With Dorie Pick: Oatmeal Breakfast Bread (Muffins)

The time has come! My Tuesdays with Dorie pick! I chose Dorie’s Oatmeal Breakfast Bread.  As I was contemplating my pick, I tried to act like I was going to pick something decadent and chocolatey and sinful, but in the end, I kept coming back to this recipe.  I guess I’m sort of granola.  I […]

Hearty Breakfast Casserole

I am always on the search for a good casserole. I don’t really make them that often, but I always want to make them.  The recipes I find just don’t seem to live up to what I want a casserole to be.  I have this idea that there are some magical casserole recipes out there […]

Cinnamon Walnut Bundt

Happy National Bundt Day! Okay, so National Bundt Day was yesterday, but I did bake this bundt on that special day to show my support for bundt lovers everywhere. And of course, I wanted to honor the biggest bundt lover of all, Mary the Food Librarian, who has been on a bundt-baking crusade for the […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Banana Bundt Cake

I mustered up the strength for TWD this week, ladies! My main reason was because I love Mary so much, but also because I’ve wanted to try out the recipe in the past. Mary is the queen of bundt cakes, but I decided to do mini loaves because (gasp!) I don’t have a bundt pan. […]

Happy Doughnut Day!

Word on the street is that it’s National Doughnut Day. I’m afraid I didn’t make you any doughnuts (cupcakes are more my thing).. I’m not exactly observing the holiday this year (vacay in a week!). But, I can share of one of the little bundt cakes that we affectionately call the “Big Fat Doughnut.” I […]

Bite Size Pop Tarts

I’m so excited to share this post with you! There’s been lots of excitement amongst Oven Lovers about this month’s PMOW (Pre-Made, Our Way) Challenge for homemade Pop Tarts, and rightfully so. Most people love this breakfast treat, but a lot of people don’t buy them because they’re filled with preservatives, HFCS and who knows […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Mango Bread

This week’s TWD is Fresh Mango Bread. I used frozen mango. Woops. I was pretty excited about this recipe (picked by Kelly at Baking with the Boys), thinking it might be a little healthier than some of the other recipes, what with the fruit and all. I made just 1/3 of the recipe, which produced […]

Christmas Morning Treats: Ebelskivers

Christmas morning comes with lots of treats. Many of them are gifts, but some of them are edible. This year, I turned one of my gifts into a tasty breakfast treat! (image from One of the gifts I received from my husband this year was an Ebelskiver pan. Before this year, I had heard […]

Birthday Breakfast: Sticky Buns

Nick doesn’t like cake. He’s just not big on it. Me, I could eat cake all day, every day.. but Nick is more of a pastry/pie person. Needless, to say, he always helps me eat all of the treats that come out of the oven. For his birthday, I thought it would be nice to […]

Leftovers: Egg, Cheese and Cornbread Sandwiches

Good Morning! What do you do with extra little cornbread loaves? Get creative at breakfast. This was super simple- I just sliced the cornbread loaves in half, spread some butter on them and toasted them in a skillet. Meanwhile, I scrambled an egg with salt and pepper, then topped it with cheese and sandwiched it […]
