Cherry Chocolate Scones

chocolate cherry scones 006

I keep on finding awesome recipes in the Better Homes and Garden Breakfast and Brunch magazine edition. The magazine was on the shelves quite awhile ago, want to say that I picked it up sometime in the middle of Winter. You know how some people are a sucker for the gossip magazines? Well, I'm a sucker for food magazines. Think they do that on purpose at the check out lanes, and put the candy right next to the food magazines. Oh look, this recipe looks good it has chocolate in it! Think I'll pick ...

Gruyere and Chive Popovers

gruyere and chive popovers 018

I had a pretty crazy weekend in Minneapolis, MN. Friday night started off with dinner at a restaurant that was featured on Diners Drive Ins and Dives called Broder's Pasta Bar.  For an appetizer, we ordered some Rosemary Almonds, which I plan on making for a snack one day. For dinner, I was forced to order number 18 (tagliarini di Locanda del Lupo) because according to my brother and Laura, it would not disappoint! #18 was fresh homemade pasta with prosciutto Rossa, truffle pesto & cream ...

Sweet Potato and Sausage Hash

sweet potato and sausage hash 023

Sweet Potato and Sausage Hash is  a good way to start off any weekend morning. The sweet potatoes get cooked in some boiling water.  The sausage and onion get cooked in a skillet and I learned something new today while cooking sausage. If you poor in a little bit of water, that helps to get the brown sticky bits off the bottom of the pan. The water will absorb in the skillet and your pan will be clean. The sausage and sweet potatoes give you that sweet and salty combo, and then you have that egg ...

Blueberry Coffee Cake

  Every now and then, there will be a food magazine in the store where EVERY recipe in it looks good. If there's a magazine with only like say one or two recipes in there, that actually look good, it isn't worth purchasing in my opinion. When every  recipe in a magazine looks good, seriously EVERY recipe, like this Better Homes and Garden magazine I picked up about breakfast. Score! I have recipes to make for the next month. :) The magazine teaches you how to make your own yogurt, s ...

Happy 2015! Last year was a good year for this blog, and I can't wait to see what this year brings!

I would like to see my site traffic grow even higher this year, and  get more recipes featured. P ...

Overnight Orange Cinnamon Rolls

overnight orange cinnamon rolls 025

Awhile back, I tried making some low fat cinnamon rolls and wondered why they hardly rose at all. I looked at the back of the yeast package, and it had expired in 2012 of February. That would be why! I got some new yeast at the grocery store, so I have a fresh infection  now. That was a terrible joke, I know. Anyways, always check the expired date on your yeast packages. I'm never buying those instant yeast packages you get at Sam's Club ever again. By the time I actually get to use them the ...
