Homemade Croissants

We have mornings around here that feel more like a poorly scripted sitcom than real life. Eleventy billion toys scattered in a path of hard plastic destruction across the living room and to the kitchen. The sharpest toy always seems to lie in wait at the center of the doorway to our bedroom. Pointy end [...]

Blackberry Lemon Scones

Blackberry and lemon are two of those flavors that are great on their own but almost magical when paired together. The blackberry-lemon combo is in heavy rotation at breakfast, getting mixed into muffins, pancakes, and scones. I tried to come up with a way to get blackberries into a scone without completely demolishing the berries [...]

Every morning, I turn on Sesame Street after breakfast and [...]

Homemade Hot Dog Buns

I’ve been sitting on this recipe for a couple of months. It seemed a little silly to post about homemade hot dog buns around Thanksgiving… even though I made them around Thanksgiving. We swam, grilled hot dogs, and had frosty mug beer for dinner. Gotta love “fall” in Texas. March seems like fair game, though. [...]

Fresh Pear-Ginger Quick Bread

While the rest of the group is posting Danmy’s recipe choice, Muchas Leches Cake with Sugared Almonds, I’m posting a weeks old Project Pastry Queen recipe this week because: 1) I was going to eventually bake this recipe anyway 2) Of the two recipes I missed, and the current recipe due, it was the easiest [...]
