Overnight Blueberry Coffee Cake

overnight blueberry coffee cake 020

I am a sucker for buying magazines at the grocery store when I'm waiting in line to check out. My favorite food magazines are Better Homes and Garden and Food Network's magazine. I'll see a recipe in the magazine that I just have to try, and this is one of them. Overnight Blueberry Coffee Cake. One of the things I love about Better Homes and Garden is that they include the nutrition info in their recipes. That's perfect for people who are watching their weight and counting points. Have ...

Chocolate-Hazelnut S’moreos French Toast

smores french toast 048

Warning!!!!  Please consult your health provider before eating this french toast. May cause your blood sugar levels to sky rocket. In the middle of the french toast is chocolate-hazelnut spread, marshmallows, and just to make things exciting a bit, I stuffed some leftover mega-stuffed Oreos in there. See why I told you to consult your health care provider? I had to get rid of them some how didn't I? Then to top that bread off you dip the french toast in the custard and then the graham ...

Easy Bacon Chocolate Danishes

*Sigh tomorrow is Monday. All it did today was rain. Rain, rain, rain all day long.  It was a lazy and damp Sunday. The sun managed to come out for a bit around 3:45 in order to snap these pics really quickly. I spent most of the day watching Food Network and trying to clean my kitchen. Then I was wondering why my traffic is so low for today, because usually on Sunday it is the highest day. Then I forgot, today is Mother's Day and usually if there's a Holiday on the weekend that means a day ...

Cinnamon French Toast Sticks

cinnamon sugar french toast sticks 020

Back when I worked at the dining center as a prep cook, I learned how to make some really good French toast.  The dining center was my job back when I was in college and I'd do everything. From serving, to working the grill, and to helping the cooks prepare the meals for the next day. That job was pretty awesome and fun, and I met a lot of cool people there. This grill was so huge, I'd be flipping like 50 pieces of French toast at a time. What makes a good French Toast? The key is in the ...

White Chocolate Cherry Granola

So happy it is Saturday. I'm going to a cupcake decorating class later on at 2:00pm today. I'll have to take pictures of the finished cupcakes and post them on here. It's with the meetup.com I joined. I also went and had some brunch with a friend at this place called the Boiler Room. We had Scotch eggs with maple aoli and they were to DIE for. The sausage was so spicy and the sauce was the best. A Scotch egg is a hard boiled egg, that is rolled in ground sausage and then gets deep fried with a ...

Baked Funfetti Glazed Doughnuts

Happy Wednesday! Here's a little tip. If you want to get back at someone you don't like at the moment, go to a health insurance site and enter in their phone number to the site and press the enter button when looking for quotes. They'll get spammed up to wazoo in phone calls! I accidentally did that, and now I'm getting calls from all over the US. They started on Friday and now, I probably have up to 80 phone calls from missed insurance companies. I'm not kidding you! Don't ever do that for ...

Ham and Asparagus Frittata

asparagus and ham fritatta 015

Frittata's are pretty awesome and so easy. No flipping, no scrambling, and no waiting until the egg yolk is set in the  middle and the whites are done. My favorite type of egg is over easy, but with a frittata all you do is add everything into a bowl, pour in a pan, and let the oven do the rest for you! Mix in whatever vegetables or protein you like. My favorites are chorizo, ham, bacon, cheese, and broccoli. Potatoes are also great, but will take a longer cooking time. To make this dairy ...
