These muffins are so good. It’s comforting yet the apples and walnuts reduce any sense of guilt. Plus I don’t use butter and I use skim milk. I’m going to try the same recipe with cranberries and white chocolate pieces. … Continue reading
It’s a rare thing that human beings can be neatly divvied up into two categories. But occasionally, situations arise where you either ARE, or you AREN’T. Runny eggs are just such a situation.
I’m back! The honeymoon in Vermont was wonderful and involved much culinary delight. Phil and I usually camp when we vacation, so a resort and spa experience was a fabulous change of pace. But it turns out that rest and … Continue reading
As you can see by Summer’s recent bridal shower update, it’s been a busy week for me. And I have a backlog of recipes to post!
This weekend we celebrated my sister’s upcoming wedding with a fall bridal shower brunch. What a great day it was for the beautiful bride-to-be!
I’m pretty particular when it comes to breakfast. I believe that everyone should eat it, every single day. And if you don’t eat the right stuff, you’re setting yourself up for a day of low energy and snack attacks. So … Continue reading
It’s autumn, and you’re an overzealous New Englander. Sure, you can buy apples at the store a half mile down the street, but you’ve decided to drive an hour north and pay five times on the dollar for apples you … Continue reading
The mother of all pancakes. I don’t think I’ve ever had Bisquick in my life (unless a diner snuck it it). I grew up on these – my dad’s pancakes. Many Sunday mornings Nikki and I would wake up to … Continue reading
I made this in “Family and Consumer Science” in 8th grade. I thought… um, ew, eggs and bacon wrapped together? ga-ross. (Weren’t we all a little Valley Girl back then?).
I really did not know what to expect making this. It sounded good – but I was still a little scared. I love apples, and somehow the idea of mixing apple slices with cheese was a little… egh. However, it was delicious! I would suggest it for a fancy brunch. We had it for dinner and it was very good and I thought quite filling (fiance made himself 2) For example, one of my bridesmaids Lauren is very sophisticated/Audrey Hepburnish - loves French food and knows her cheeses. I would love to make this for her next time she visits.
The best dinners growing up were always breakfast. Such memories: Micky Mouse pancakes, sweet French toast, batter drops scalding innocent Nikki’s hands. Where does the time go? The man is the omelette king and has perfected his technique. We also had some leftover potatoes so I decided to try my hand at a combo hash browns/latke. It’s pretty darn comforting. This is also a great meal when you have a lot of leftovers to use up.
Growing up I wasn’t exactly the healthiest eater. While I am much better now, it has happened on occasion that someone has walked into a room and caught me by surprise dumping an entire bag of Smart Food down my gullet, gorging on nutella, or using “the claw” to stuff a popcorn, cheese and pickle sandwich into my mouth. Good times. It is rare to see me eat salad and honestly, I think a meatball sub is probably one of the world’s greatest inventions, up there with contacts, the airplane, and pants for women.
For a long time, banana bread was on my list of nasties. Why ruin perfectly good bread with the flavor of banana? Everyone knows the only bad runts candy flavor is banana. duh.
However, I finally baked some, more for Dan than for me… and I proceeded to stuff my face with it for the next few days. You really need to eat this. Now. Like I am.
