Homemade Croissants

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 [...]

Project Pastry Queen: Whole Lemon-Blueberry Muffins

Whole Lemon Muffins with Blueberries

It’s Wildcard Weekend for Project Pastry Queen. We get to go back and make any recipe that we missed along the way. I chose to make the Whole Lemon Muffins that Tara hosted a few weeks ago. The recipe is unique in that you take an entire lemon, remove the seeds, and then throw the [...]

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 [...]

Challah Bread

Homemade Challah Bread

Motherhood is many things. Exhausting. Fun. Maddening. Hilarious. Frustrating. Exciting. One thing it’s not? Boring.

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

Chipotle Hollandaise Sauce

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 Biscuit

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 [...]

Avocado Eggs Benedict

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 [...]
