Blackberry-Lemon Scones

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 [...]

Homemade Challah Bread

Motherhood is many things. Exhausting. Fun. Maddening. Hilarious. Frustrating. Exciting. One thing it’s not? Boring. There’s always a new word, a silly face, a funny imitation, or an emptied box of pasta or a container of cinnamon on the kitchen floor. It’s never boring. Ever. Every morning, I turn on Sesame Street after breakfast and [...]

Chipotle Hollandaise Sauce

When we posted the Avocado Eggs Benedict recipe, I mentioned that one of the pieces were missing: Chipotle Hollandaise Sauce. I had everything ready to go to whip up a batch. Everything except the star ingredient – canned chipotles. It’s an absolutely delicious meal without it but it’s so much better with the sauce. To [...]

Spicy Chicken Breakfast Biscuit

Weekend breakfasts are my very favorite meal of the week. They’re such a simple joy. There’s no rushing around, looking for phones (the baby had it last!), car keys (the baby had them last!), or wallets (you can guess where our suspicion lies). There’s no discovering that we’re out of milk after the cereal is [...]

Eggs Benedict with Avocado

Breakfast for dinner usually has very limited forms in our house. It’s either pancakes or Eggs Benedict and The Foodie Groom usually casts his vote for Eggs Benedict. When Avocados From Mexico asked us to come up with a way to incorporate avocados into a breakfast recipe, it was kind of an obvious choice. I [...]

Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffins

Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffins

While dessert is typically at the top of our list when it comes to strawberries, breakfast is a close second. Muffins, scones, and anything else that can be eaten with one hand has been super popular around here ever since the Foodie Baby made her appearance last year. They’re also popular with the Foodie Groom [...]

Strawberry Jam Scones

Strawberry Jam Scones

This week’s Project Pastry Queen was a Wildcard Week. We could go back and make any recipe that we missed. I loosely interpreted that rule (it’s really more like a guideline anyway ) and made a dish that I had already made once: Peach Jam Scones. Only this time time, we didn’t use peach jam! [...]

Bacon, Cheddar, and Green Onion Scones

Bacon Cheddar Scones

If I had to pick only one favorite recipe from The Pastry Queen, I’m not sure I could do it. I could narrow it down to three, maybe four… probably five. One things for sure: these scones would be in the top 3, (or 4… or 5). It’s my favorite omelet ingredients baked in a [...]
