Mushroom Omelette

I sure wish I had taken more photos of this beautiful breakfast! I just snapped a couple before gobbling it up. I wasn’t planning on writing about this but it’s such a great dish, that I’m really noting this for myself. ย I especially wish I had taken a photo after cutting into it so you…

Simple Vacation Breakfast at Home

My dear friend Eric is in Hawaii right now and his photos are making me miss my island time! On a whim this morning, I decided to bake up another batch of my Coconut Muffins since I had coconut milk that needed to be used up and, well, one thing led to another, and I…

Coconut Muffins

I don’t want to be hyperbolic here, but this is the best muffin recipe on planet earth. I first ate this perfect morsel of coconut goodness at beautiful Montpelier Plantation and Beach on the Caribbean island of Nevis. I loved them so much that I begged my friends at Montpelier to give me the recipe,…

Brioche French Toast

This is one of those dishes that looks fancy but takes minutes to prepare. You can easily scale this up and make French Toast in an electric skillet for a group, but I’ve noted a single serving below. French Toast is one of the first dishes that I learned how to make. I made it…

Orange Chocolate Chip Scones

What could be a better afternoon treat than an orange chocolate chip scone? If you aren’t a fan of orange and chocolate, feel free to substitute a 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract for the orange zest. These are old fashioned buttermilk scones that don’t require a mixer or rolling pin. It comes together much like…

Cherry Almond Scones

This is the first cousin to my popular Cranberry Vanilla Buttermilk Scones. My Cherry Almond Scones have just enough almond extract to have you wondering what that lovely flavor is but not enough to overpower the cherry. These are great when you want fruity scones but have no fresh fruit on hand. They look so…

Blueberry Lemon Scones

Blueberry lovers, this one’s for you! This bright and cheerful English buttermilk scone is bursting with fresh blueberry flavor. The dough comes together in minutes and they’re delicious warm from the oven or leftover. No rolling pin required! I like to pick buckets and buckets of blueberries in the spring to keep them on hand…

Delicious, Easy Brunch

I had some friends over for brunch yesterday and couldn’t believe how easily this came together! I honestly think was my best brunch spread yet. I baked the coffeecake the day before and made the Belgian waffle batter (a double batch) the night before. The morning of the brunch, I made two pans of maple-glazed…

Giant Ham and Cheese Omelet

This was such a hit at brunch! This is my favorite method for serving eggs to a crowd because it turns out perfectly every time and the clean up could not be easier. I make this same method with all sorts of variations, often involving leftover grilled veggies (yum!), but this is hands down my…

Maple-Glazed Bacon

This is justย the best bacon in the world. It’s also my favorite way to cook a large amount of bacon because the oven does all the work and you need not clean bacon splatters off of your stove later. You know how much I hate to clean! Many recipes online tell you to set the…
