Tasty Tuesdy – Fun With Oatmeal

Today, what I’m cooking isn’t a fancy dish.  It isn’t something that most of you haven’t already made before.  Who doesn’t love oatmeal as a great comfort dish.  So why am I posting about oatmeal?  I see commercials and advertisements and store displays more and more that advertise “oatmeal” that… really isn’t. What they’re selling is instant and is microwaved and full of all sorts of ingredients that don’t need…

Tasty Tuesday – Pumpkin Waffles

Yes, I’ve been in a bit of a Blissdom haze lately. That hasn’t been my entire focus, happy as the wee ones are to know that. As part of Little Miss’s school’s reading program, the school earned a pancake breakfast day. The teachers cooked pancakes for every student in the school who had achieved the reading incentive for the past week. It’s awfully sweet. I love all the extras that…

Tasty Tuesday – Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins

There was a bake sale at Mister Man’s school last week. Remember those and how fun they were to pick and choose what you wanted from all the great bakers in the community, ooooing and ahhhing over the delectable delights? Most schools no longer allow this or just have store bought items (boo!), but we’re lucky that ours still allows a bake sale from homemade goodies. Of course, I had…

Tasty Tuesday – Crepes!

Birthdays are big in our house. Well, I make them big anyway. Everyone gets to choose the birthday dinner and the type of cake … and I’ll make it. We’ve done everything from Peach Cake to homemade bagel dogs to pasta with carbonara and more. Thursday was my birthday. So of course I got breakfast in bed. Well, I at least had breakfast made for me. Ok ok ok, so…

Tasty Tuesday – Pumpkin Donuts

There are some things that just scream fall to me, and pumpkin is one of them. Unfortunately, I don’t like pumpkin. Or so I thought. Then I had pumpkin donuts years and years ago and discovered that I like pumpkin, but just in very certain ways. Like in pumpkin donuts. I love making them, but they make a ton of donuts, so this is a recipe I make to share….

Cheerios Anyone?

I do my best to ensure that the wee ones eat healthfully. We don’t eat out as often as many people I know. I (fortunately) like to cook from scratch, so the majority of our foods are not processed. I’m lucky that the wee ones like a variety of foods – including fruits and vegetables – and that they eat them at most meals. Breakfast is a big meal in…

Tasty Tuesday – Banana Bread

So last week, I had a desire to bake. And I had bananas in the freezer that were taking up too much room. Voila, banana bread, right? Wellllll, almost. Because it’s easier to use my adapted recipes by looking them up on my blog, I searched for the recipe here. And I searched. And then I searched some more. Apparently I always thought that since I make banana bread all…

Banana Bread Recipe – Goodbye Yucky Bananas!

This recipe for banana bread is a classic. It’s delicious and the perfect way to use up overripe bananas. This recipe makes two loaves because – let’s be honest – when is one loaf enough?

Tasty Tuesday!

I made a special treat for my husband for Father’s Day. I always do some sort of breakfast in bed, and I realized that I hadn’t made my scones (sans cream) since we took Little Miss off dairy. They’re quick, they’re easy, and they’re ohhhh so yummy. I figured it was worth trying them dairy free, although I’ll also share the original recipe with dairy. Little Miss has already asked…
