Sweet Potato Avocado Breakfast Toast

I’m typically not a fan of sweet potatoes. I have flashbacks of the “Thanksgiving Yams” that created flavor and texture issues for me as a 10-year-old.  As an adult, I’m finding that I like them more and more. There’s a soul food place near our house and their sweet potato fries will make you never […]

Hash Brown Quiche with Bacon

A creative way to enjoy eggs, hash browns and bacon…and cheese. There has to be some cheese.  Ingredients 3 Cups shredded hash browns, thawed and drained 3 Tablespoons butter, melted 3 Large eggs, beaten 1/2 Cup half and half 1/2 Cup milk (I used whole milk) 1/2 Cup of bacon, cooked and crumbled (I used […]

Maylasian Sweet Potato Doughnut

I guess if sweet potatoes are the main ingredient that makes these healthy doughnuts? Even if they are deep-fried? Yield : 6 medium doughnuts Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups of steamed, completely cooled and mashed sweet potatoes ( I used slightly more than 1 1/2) About 3/4 cup of plain flour or less 1/2 tsp salt […]

Brown Sugar Bacon

I kick off my first post in a while with an entry from Paula Deen. Instead of butter we’re worshiping at the altar of Paula’s other favorite ingredient…bacon. What I like the most about this recipe is the chili powder. A touch of salt with a wallop. I can’t wait to pop this into the […]

Spiced Coffee

The recipe below is for those days where you might want the flavor of a latte or mocha without all of the heavy milk or cream. It also works well if you have some plain robust beans that are unflavored and you are in the mood for some flavored coffee.  Be careful as the chocolate […]

Baked Eggs with Chives and Cream

Add some buttered toast to mop up the yolks and you’ve got a breakfast treat that you can eat any time of the day. Top with some shredded cheese? Maybe chop up some crispy bacon and toss it inside?  Ingredients tsp. unsalted butter, softened 4 large eggs Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 1-1/2 […]

Cheesy Dutch Baby Pancake

This is a fantastic dish that you can dive into for breakfast or lunch. This version is savory and salty. It would go great with a smooth cup of coffee and maybe some juice or fruit slices. I made mine with prosciutto tips but you can also cut up some slices of this fabulous meat. […]

Easy Biscuits

I like this recipe to disprove all of those people who freak out every time it snows. You know those souls. They rush to the grocery store as the first flakes fall fearing that they will have nothing to eat. This recipes promises to deliver some tasty, homemade biscuits with a few ingredients you are […]

Red Velvet Pancakes with Cream Cheese Glaze

This not only screams Valentine’s Day it also yelps a little on the decadence front. I went through several recipes and found that both recipes for the cakes and the toppings didn’t always appeal to me. So in this post I’ve combined two recipes. You’ll find links at the bottom to both and a third. […]

Potatoes, Fresh Cheese and Slow Scrambled Eggs

I’ve been reading a lot lately about the proper way to scramble eggs. How to do it slowly and gently while keeping the heat somewhat low…even taking the pan off the heat for a while. Julia Child was apparently the Queen of the Egg depending on the article you read. The final product is a […]
