Eggs Benedict con Queso

Hi, my name is– Queso! QUESO!! KAY-SOOOO!!!! That’s kind of what happens when we go to Austin. We stop by the original Kerbey Lane Cafe at least once… a day. And before the server can even get his or her name out, my husband is already reaching for his tranquilizer gun. So maybe it’s not [...]

DIY: English Muffins

February 20, 2013
Homemade English Muffins

“Dough! Are you making dough? I can have some dough?” The clank of the mixer bowl snapping onto mixer sends The Little running to the kitchen from anywhere inside our fence line. She has always had super Spidey hearing. When she was a newborn, the sound of milk pouring over my cereal downstairs in the [...]

Chocolate Chunk (Chip) Bagels

A few years ago, one of my New Year’s resolutions was to start making most of our own bread. With a little bit of scheduling and some room in the freezer, I could bake up sandwich bread, burger buns, english muffins, and bagels without having to buy very much.

Maple Bacon Biscuits

I’m ready for 2013. Like ready ready. I stepped onto the bathroom scale this morning and it said “error.” It’s such a jerk sometimes. Like when it randomly tells me I weigh 10lbs less than I did the day before… and then 6lbs more 8 seconds later. But it does have a point. So all [...]

Eggs Oscar with King Crab

That looks (and sounds!) a lot fancier than it really is. It’s Eggs Benedict, dressed up with leftovers from the previous night’s Burgers Oscar. “Oscar style” in this house involves asparagus, Bearnaise, and crab – king crab when I don’t have to sell a kidney to afford it. I don’t know what it is about [...]

Pecan Pumpkin Butter Rolls with Bourbon Cream Cheese Icing

Remember that pecan pumpkin butter? Today I’m going to how you to use half of it and, at the same time, take care of breakfast (or dessert) for the week. These non-cinnamon “cinnamon” rolls use pecan pumpkin butter, brown sugar, and roasted pecans for the filling. After baking, the warm rolls are topped with a [...]

Apple Cinnamon Rolls with Jack Daniels-Cream Cheese Icing

It’s September! The 9th month of the year is the gateway to sweatshirts, chili, football, and all things pumpkin. But before there’s pumpkin and Halloween candy, there are apples. This month, Rachel is throwing an Apple a Day party – a group of fabulous bloggers sharing their favorite apple recipes. And my contribution? Breakfast. But [...]

Eggs Benedict Burger

Eggs Benedict Burger

Once a week, we have Fancy Burger Night. We take a pound of lean ground beef and try to make it the unleanest thing we’ll eat all week. And that right there, that was my husband’s latest contribution, The Eggs Benedict Burger. It’s part breakfast, part dinner, and part 75% arterial blockage. Okay maybe it [...]
