Bagels

Prior to moving to Germany, I would just grab some bagels every so often and make a bagel sandwich or toast some up and slather with cream cheese. Washington had the best bread brand I’ve ever had! However, after moving here and realizing a pack of 6 bagels costs almost 7 DOLLARS, I thought to […]

Caramelized Challah French Toast

I love making bread, it tastes amazing and it is something I truly enjoy doing. However, often times fresh bread goes bad too fast. Since there aren’t any preservatives in the bread, it molds quite quickly. One way to keep your bread from spoiling and going into the trash is to make French toast. This […]

Lemon Cream Cheese Sweet Rolls

Cinnamon rolls are absolutely delicious and my favorite version is my Orange Vanilla Cinnamon Rolls. However, I was craving a different kind of citrus : lemon. I came up with these lemon cream cheese sweet rolls, (sweet rolls since there isn’t any cinnamon), and holy moly these things are so delicious. While they take a bit, […]

Chocolate Buttermilk Waffles

Happy International Waffle Day! March 25th is celebrated as International Waffle Day in countries such as Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, which is also known as the Feast of Annunciation where waffles are typically eaten. However, this version of a waffle is pretty decadent and was highly demanded by one particular 4-year-old in my house. Chocolate […]

I give you this blueberry croissant puff. A combination of a cobbler and bread pudding, this sweet and tangy breakfast bake would also be […]

Banana Nut Pancakes

Breakfast foods are by far some of my favorite. We love a good pancake around this house and I set out to recreate some banana nut pancakes that my mom and I had in Charleston, South Carolina when we went to see Aric for his basic training graduation. Now these are nowhere near as good […]

French Toast Casserole

I recently made this for Christmas Eve dinner at a breakfast-for-dinner get together at a friend’s house. This French toast casserole is an easy make-ahead breakfast, as the bread needs to sit overnight (or at least 8 hours) in order to soak up all of the liquids you will add to it. You also have […]

Orange Vanilla Cinnamon Rolls

Maksen loves these. The last two years for his birthday, he has requested orange cinnamon rolls for breakfast. I feel like I have perfected my regular cinnamon rolls, but I couldn’t ever get the orange flavor to SHINE through the strong flavor of the cinnamon. I think I finally have gotten it right, and these […]
