Chocolate Banana Zucchini Bread

Dessert for breakfast is ALWAYS a good idea.  Your ten year old self was correct…ice cream does taste best before noon.  As does chocolate cake.  And icing.  And pie.  And sometimes liquor, but that is more your 29 year old self talking, not the pre-adolescent peep squeak sneaking cookies for breakfast.  I don’t think IContinue reading “Chocolate Banana Zucchini Bread”

Blueberry Muffins

Working the weekend…kinda sorta stinks.  Like dirty socks. It is hard.  And cruel.  And unfortunately, necessary. Wanna know what makes them easier?  Blueberry muffins and a decent Pandora station.  Fact. Oh! and coffee….lots and lots and lots of coffee.  Which, thankfully goes very well with blueberry muffins and good music.  It is like they knewContinue reading “Blueberry Muffins”

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Scones

Happy Tuesday friends! I am gonna let you in on a little secret about myself…this whole endless sunshine and extreme warmth is wearing out its welcome.  I need rain.  Much like my grass.  I need a few days of overcast skies and big fat raindrops.  Not a thunderstorm.  Just rain.  No blue sky.  No yellowContinue reading “Chocolate Chocolate Chip Scones”

Blackberry + Lemon Waffles

Guess what is less than 10 days away? 26.2 miles.  My first.  I haven’t spoken much about this race since I signed up for it, just a few short months ago.  Man, 4 months ago, 16 weeks of training felt like an eternity…but it flew!  Like, seriously, the days, weeks, and months sprouted wings and flew! EachContinue reading “Blackberry + Lemon Waffles”

Buttermilk Biscuits

There is a big part of me (about 78.4%) that wants to live on a farm, surrounded by rolling hills…. Picture it.  A simple farm house with a welcoming wrap around porch.  A porch, where you would find a lazy bloodhound (Sam) sleeping and maybe a corgi (Howard).  They would be stretched out next to weathered rockingContinue reading “Buttermilk Biscuits”

Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread

It’s funny.  I have several pages of scribbled recipes/ideas and a folder full of recipes that I want to whip up.  I could go many months before I would need to think about what to make next.  But you wanna know how often I turn to this list or open the folder?  Rarely.  Instead, IContinue reading “Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread”

Whole Wheat English Muffins

Who makes English muffins? I do.  From scratch,  for no other reason than a simple craving for a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich.  And why do I have an urge to call this sandwich a ‘Mc’ something or other?  McMuffin is just so darn catchy and engrained in our minds.  I have lived with theContinue reading “Whole Wheat English Muffins”
