Since our Saturday’s are usually pretty hectic, we like to start our Sundays off slowly and have a big family breakfast. Usually, we have pancakes. omelets or french toast. Recently, however, I thought I would put a spin on our traditional french toast. I found this recipe for Croissant on an episode of WNEP’s Home and Backyard. It’s a great locally produced show that’s on our local ABC affiliate. You can watch the episodes featuring yours truly here.
I have a confession to make. I have a love affair with anything lemon. Cakes, pies, drinks, you name it. I came across this recipe for Lemon Pull Apart Bread on Pinterest. Of course, I knew I had to try it.
The recipe has only 5 ingredients and only a few simple steps. It also uses frozen bread dough which is perfect for me since I’m not much of a bread baker. Frankly, yeast kind of scares me.
I made this recipe over the weekend and it was delicious! It was a nice light dessert and it was even great for breakfast the next morning. I loved the bright, tart flavor. I think this will be perfect for Easter or Mother’s Day brunch!
As you know, I absolutely love Christmas morning! It’s one of the times that I really enjoy making breakfast. Some of my favorite breakfast recipes are Christmas Morning Breakfast Braid and Red Velvet Pancakes with Cream Cheese Syrup. Oh, and Cowboy Sandwiches — how could I forget those?!?
Our plans have changed a bit for this Christmas morning. We are going to my sister’s house for brunch. I needed to find a recipe that would be easy to make and take with me. I came across this recipe for a French Toast Bake on Pinterest. It’s perfect for Christmas morning because I can assemble it all the day before and bake it when I’m ready.
While I enjoy the long, lazy summer days, it’s the cool, crisp days of fall that I really crave! I wait all year long to enjoy the few short weeks, where the mountains are covered in orange, yellow and red patches and the days are cool and sunny. You know…when you need to wear a sweatshirt but you can still get a sun burn!
This was the perfect autumn weekend! Bright sun, colorful leaves, two whole days with nothing to do but visit the pumpkin patch and the apple orchard! Bliss!
This weather always inspires me to cook and bake! And, since we had just left the Ritter’s Cider Mill with all of our favorite finds (buckets of Jona Gold, Macoun and Gala apples, apple cider donuts and, of course, apple cider), I wanted to find some new apple recipes.

I love garlic bread. Actually, I love most anything that’s made with garlic! What I don’t love, though, is garlic bread that is dripping in butter. Ick.
This weekend, we were having Chicken Parmigiana and I wanted garlic bread. I sifted through “the pile” and came up with this recipe — it only called for 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Not too shabby! So I gave it a try.
