So I really love the Pumpkin Scones that are available this time of year at Starbucks – I do not however like the impact they have on my wallet.  A few bucks every time I pick up an afternoon coffee really starts to add up!  This year I set out to find a Pumpkin Scone […]

This is seriously my favorite fall breakfast dish ever.  Ever.  I found the recipe in the Gooseberry Patch Pumpkin Cookbook which I had downloaded on a whim onto my Kindle – it’s a pretty awesome little cookbook.  This recipe combines all the things I love about fall flavors with all the things I love about waffles – […]

Ok so I am combining two ’30-while-30′ dishes into one post because that’s how we enjoyed them.  I think this actually makes a really good breakfast combination – the sweetness of the french toast can be a little overwhelming, but with the spicy sausage by its side it was just about perfect.  I fell in […]

Strawberry Banana Muffins

May 11, 2009

These Strawberry Banana Muffins were a last-minute addition to my Mother’s Day Brunch line-up. They were so last minute that I had my husband run to the store to pick up more strawberries about an hour before our company was due to arrive! I spotted this recipe on Just2Good and followed it to a tee. […]

Crustless Quiche

May 11, 2009

I made my first quiche last November based upon this recipe for Easy Broccoli Quiche. Since I first made the quiche, I have changed the filling a bit and eliminated the crust. I’m not a huge fan of pie crust, and removing the crust cut the calorie count in half. The filling in this new […]

Creamy Fruit Dip

May 11, 2009

This fruit dip was so easy to make! It was a fun, tasty addition to my simple fruit platter. The dip was a little thicker than I would have preferred, but that didn’t stop us from eating it all! I found the original recipe on allrecipes.com, but made some modifications. I halved the original recipe […]

Broccoli Quiche

November 24, 2008

I made my first quiche on Sunday! Not only was it remarkably easy to make, but it got rave reviews from our company. I first perused my cookbook collection, but was disappointed that the recipes called for large amounts of cream or milk. Since I have an intolerance to milk, I try to limit the […]
