    Egg & Pepper Stuffed Toast

    Happy Saturday! Weekends are the only time I can make breakfast that isn’t something I’m grabbing and eating in my car on my way to work. So today I’m sharing a delicious breakfast post with you that you can make for breakfast, brunch, whatever. I saw this video on Facebook a long time ago via Chefclub for this Omelette-in-a-hole. I actually forgot that’s what it was called until I searched for the video just now hence why my blog post name is different. It’s similar to the classic eggs in a basket or egg-in-a-hole, but fancier because it’s got peppers, ham, and cheese. First, I cut up some ham – I just…

    Cinnamon Rolls

    I love cinnamon rolls. My childhood is filled with memories of my family going to one of our local malls on many weekends to shop, walk around, and eat Cinnabon. I still love getting Cinnabon to this day when I’m near one, which isn’t often since there aren’t that many around here anymore. While I like baking, I don’t really like to work with yeast just because I’m not very familiar with it. But when I found this recipe for 1 hour cinnamon rolls, I had to try it! I made two very minor changes but you can click to the original recipe above for all the measurements and exact…

    Star Wars Pancakes

    I need to preface this post by saying the pancakes did not turn out too hot. In the end, they looked okay, but not great. About a month ago when I was having a browse on the Williams Sonoma website, I saw they had Star Wars pancake molds. They looked so fun and who wouldn’t want to eat a pancake in the shape of Yoda or a storm trooper? So I bought the kid and it came with a storm trooper, yoda, R2D2, and Darth Vader. I used my trusty Aunt Jemima pancake mix and started making them. So like I said they didn’t end up that great looking so…

    Dutch Baby Pancake + Peaches

    I think I’ve mentioned on here before that I’m not a huge breakfast eater. There are people who love breakfast and could eat it for any meal of the day. I’m not that person. But I do enjoy a good breakfast every now and then. Recently I really wanted to make a dutch baby pancake since I’d heard so many people talk about them. I found a recipe for it on Cooking With a Wallflower – a food blog that I follow – and gave it a whirl. The only thing I changed with this recipe is that I used oil instead of butter and I used jar peaches because when…

    Sunday Breakfast – Eggs in a Basket

    I hope you all enjoyed getting that extra hour of sleep with the time change! I was going to start this post off by saying “happy Sunday!” but I think I’d be happier if I didn’t have to think about how the weekend is almost over. I know, I recently did a breakfast food post, but I’m back with another one. This one is full of simple favorites that all together make a pretty delicious plate. This breakfast isn’t from today – I’m probably just having cereal or something today to be honest. I cut up some potatoes for hash browns, made eggs in a basket, and completed my plate…

    Spinach & Mushroom Omelette

    Sunday mornings are not my favorite because that means the weekend is almost over. However, one highlight is that Sundays are usually the days I have more time to have a nicer breakfast. Omelettes aren’t difficult to make, but there’s a lot of prep work so it’s not something I can eat in my allotted 5-10 minutes for breakfast on weekdays. For the omelette I’m sharing today, I’m calling it a spinach and mushroom omelette but there are more ingredients inside. I just didn’t want to call it a “spinach, mushroom, tomato, onion, bacon omelette” because that’s just ridiculous. Anyway, I used all the ingredients above as well as some…

    Breakfast @ Turning Point

    A few weeks ago I finally went to Turning Point for breakfast. There are a few locations in NJ, one of which is about 20-25 minutes from me and I’d been meaning to go for a while but never got around to it. Anyway, I finally went and I can see why it’s a popular breakfast spot! They are only open from 8am – 3pm since they do specialize in breakfast foods. I was in the mood for a waffle when I went and this Tropical Crunch Waffle was the perfect serving size. It’s 1 waffle topped with fresh bananas, strawberries, mango, and granola. On the side they give you syrup…

    Lox & Bagel

    I’m not a huge breakfast eater in terms of being able to eat a lot so something like a bagel is perfect for me. One of my favorite breakfasts is Lox & Bagel because it is so simple and scrumptious. I like making it myself because I like being able to control the amount of cream cheese on my bagel. If I ever get a bagel and cream cheese out somewhere I always ask for the cream cheese on the side because I hate when places load my bagel up with thick amounts of cream cheese. I like a very thin layer so I’d rather just do it myself. For this super…

    Bacon & Egg Breakfast Pastry

    For someone whose favorite meal is decidedly not breakfast, I seem to share a lot of breakfast food posts on here. Maybe because breakfast foods tend to be a little easier and I’m all about easy recipes. Today I’m sharing a bacon & egg breakfast pastry. I got the idea from Pinterest a long time ago and I think on there I saw posts calling it a “bacon and egg crescent square” because it uses crescent roll dough, but I decided not to call it that for 2 reasons. 1) I split my crescent roll dough in half because the squares were too big of a serving for me so…

    French Toast with Italian Bread

    It’s an international affair for my food post today. Okay, not really – it’s just French Toast, but while the quick french toast breakfast I had as a kid usually consisted of regular white bread from the likes of Wonder Bread or Pepperidge Farm, I used a loaf of italian bread for this breakfast. I’m still all for the regular white bread, but I wanted to be a little fancier this time around. I wanted nice, thick slices of french toast so that’s how I sliced up the loaf. Then, I made your standard french toast dipping mixture consisting of eggs, milk, sugar, and cinnamon. Cook until both sides (after flipping)…
