Chorizo Sausage Gravy

Preserves Pull-Apart Loaf

I am sure you have heard, seen or even tried monkey bread.  Bits of left over dough, tossed in cinnamon sugar and thrown into a bowl to be baked to an gooey pull apart perfection. This recipe is a similar idea but uses fruit preserves and a loaf pan.  It makes for a minimally messy…

One Sheet Pan Breakfast

Golden roasted potatoes, sweet potato fries, apple gouda sausages, fresh kale from the garden and over easy eggs. Baked on a parchment lined sheet pan, this makes for a tasty and easy to clean up meal.  Talk about tasty! The apple gouda sausages and sweet potatoes really made this dish for me. The fresh taste…

Ham and Broccoli Quiche

Ham, broccoli, sautéed green onions and mushrooms. Folded into beaten eggs and baked in a home made flaky butter crust. I have no idea who started the “real men don’t eat quiche” cliche, but it seems a little rediculous if you ask me. My husband goes crazy over this meal. He may eat over half…

Blackberry Crumb Bars

Fresh blackberry preserves over a shortbread like crust. Topped with a crispy crumb topping.  Sunday mornings we bake for our church, and this was the treat of choice this week. I love to bake and make sweets, but it isn’t the best for my waistline. Instead of making these for myself, I prefer to enjoy…

Milled Oat Sweet Potato Waffles – Gluten Free

Have a serious sweet tooth this morning.  Nothing sounds better than a hot stack of waffles and a cup of coffee.  There are mornings when I don’t have the time to prepare a meal.  Grab and go shakes or overnight oats seem like the only option.  We don’t do fast food at my house, so…

Sweet Potato Toast

This morning was a busy one, despite neither of my children having school.  After going to the gym I spent my morning running around town grocery shopping.  Picking up last minute deals.  $1.69 a pound for chicken breasts or thighs?!? How could I pass that up? Have you ever tried being a chef, photographer and mom…

Vanilla Coconut Overnight Oats

  Instant oatmeal out of a packet may be quick and easy, but it also tastes like the package it came from and packed full of chemicals that are used to make the fruit-like-bits added to the package taste like the real thing.  Overnight oats are far more healthy and can easily be thrown together…

Low Carb Banana Pancakes

  Really, you only need two ingredients to make these pancakes.  I like a little more flavor, so at times I will add a little cinnamon, powdered peanut butter or almond butter to the batter. I generally don’t have an issue getting my kid to eat pancakes, he absolutely loves these. If I can disguise…
