The original recipe from Mummy Musings and Mayhem calls for grated pumpkin. Since it is not easy to find all year round, a pain to cut and grate (anyone with a toddler probably doesn’t have time to mess around with a pumpkin, although it’s a great idea), and basically has similar vitamin content to […]Continue Reading...

Similar to Nature Valley crunchy granola bars, this recipe from America’s Test Kitchen uses less sugar and syrup to “glue” the oats together by processing some of the oats into flour. Mixing the oat flour with the syrup and sugar mixture “glues” the remaining ingredients together without the extra syrup. To make these peanut butter […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

Possibly my favorite breakfast ever is a good eggs benedict, or really anything smothered in real hollandaise sauce. I’d always assumed it was beyond my skillset to make myself however, and many of the recipes I came across for it made a large batch that would be difficult for a small family like mine to […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
This is my favorite recipe to use for biscuits and gravy. Of course I make some adjustments. Such as, I use sage breakfast sausage from Proper British Bacon and while its browning I add a “glob” of maple syrup. My family gets excited just at the thought of my biscuits and gravy! I also […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

While in the middle of making these muffins, I noticed the amount of sugar seemed to be a little on the high side, so I decided to not make the topping, but added both teaspoons of cinnamon to the batter. They turned out perfectly, didn’t need the extra sugar topping and you could actually […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

My favorite part of Thanksgiving has to be the pie, and I make a lot of pies for the occasion. Invariably, I have quite a bit of scrap crust dough leftover. I also tend to make a few custards and homemade eggnog, which requires a lot of egg yolks, so what to do with all […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

Our family loves eggs. They are an incredibly nutritious whole food, especially when they come from chickens on pasture (or in our case, free ranged on “lawn and garden”!) We love eggs so much that we’ve raised a baker’s dozen of chickens so far and have a handful currently laying. So when I find a […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

Not that this has EVER happened to me (wink, wink), but if you ever find yourself distracted in the grocery store by an antsy three year old who finds the bulk bins with all those scoops and colorful contents irresistible, then you quickly grab a can with a pumpkin on it so you can get […]Continue Reading...
