Birthday Muffins

New birthday bowl, say hi to blackberry muffins! I think it's a complimentary relationship 🙂 I also think the easiest way to intro anyone to baking is with muffins. There are a few helpful hints (don't over mix, or the muffins will get tough), but even mistakes are delicious. I happened on a recipe forContinue reading “Birthday Muffins”

Breakfast Salad Twist

I was going for the toast when I remembered the leftover ear of grilled corn, and I mean grilled. Rich in color, requested by my youngest who saw the picture on tv, grilled corn. I'd cut off the kernels from the last ear after dinner. We all agreed we loved it, except for the olderContinue reading “Breakfast Salad Twist”

Gluten free Breakfast Salad :-)

Yes, I woke up craving a breakfast salad. Actually, coffee…and a stale chocolate covered, raspberry, kosher for Passover marshmallow. But after that, a breakfast salad. The cool thing about salad is it can literally be made from anything to suit any palate, aversions and allergies. To prove my point, one lovely, well known event venueContinue reading “Gluten free Breakfast Salad :-)”

Scones for Everyone

Sadly these and your daily bagel are nutritional treats (threats?!) rather than mainstays. And believe you me, no one likes a well crafted muffin more than I. Muffin making is not just a hobby for me,Continue reading “A New Twist On A Breakfast Basic”

Best Breakfast

There is nothing better than a “no recipe recipe”. As this one is a super flexible breakfast – even better. Good bread, fresh ricotta, your favorite jam and sliced, toasted almonds (with a little kosher salt in a dry pan). That's it. By season sub in tomatoes & fresh herbs for the jam and almonds,Continue reading “Best Breakfast”

Breakfast with Nemo

  I wanted to up the game for my French toast. But I had no cream, no brioche, etc. I did have the usual suspects – bread, eggs, 1% milk, heavy duty butter. I mini searched the Internet and came across the following recipe. It's how I usually make French toast with the addition ofContinue reading “Breakfast with Nemo”
