Biscuits and Hamburger Gravy

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

This was a quick hearty breakfast constructed from yesterdays leftovers - a leftover hamburger patty and a couple biscuits. It can easily be scaled up to serve more, browning meat from scratch and adding seasoning as you like. If you prefer a country gravy, just replace the beef ...


Sunday, January 16th, 2011

This recipe comes from The Joy of Cooking. It's a great basic waffle recipe. They also note that you can make it reduced fat by using only 4 tbsp of butter, or extra crispy and decadent by using 16 tbsp of butter. You can also add things ...

Baked French Toast à l’Orange

Saturday, December 25th, 2010

Another recipe from Central Market. This originally called for marmelade as well, but Shaun isn't a fan, so we skipped it. They have a great "Ultimate French Toasting Bread" from the local Brenner Brother's Bakery, which is thickly sliced and light and wonderfully absorbent. We didn't like ...

Pumpkin Steel Cut Oatmeal

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

This is a great warming breakfast for a winter's day. The snow is softly falling and this was a great way to start out my morning as I worked on baking pumpkin pie and making some of the other sides for the Thanksgiving meal :-) A couple ...

Mini Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

These are my absolute favorite pumpkin cranberry bread baked into a mini muffin form. Instant easy portion control and an easy to share treat for taking into work. I just moved desks on Friday so I'm finally co-located with the group I've been working with all year, and ...

Salmon Omelet

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

I had a little leftover salmon, hollandaise, and an egg white from last night's dinner, so I added one whole egg this morning and made myself an omelet. An unusually delicious way to start off my morning :-)

Breakfast Skillet

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

This was a great easy meal! I used eggs and potatoes from my CSA boxes with some thinly sliced pork chops to make a balanced meal with the side of green salad we had. Breakfast Skillet Serves 4 1 lb meat of your choice, cut into small bite sized pieces (I used ...

Breakfast for Dinner

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

An easy dinner tonight - some of our favorite sausages, scrambled eggs, and some fresh tomatoes.

Pork Enchilada Scramble

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

This is a result of leftover pork from yesterday. It would be equally good with leftover chicken, or fresh of either one - just cook for longer. All I did was cut up one of my pork loin pieces into small bite-sized chunks, heated up a little canola ...

Chicken Potato Scramble

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

This was a quick and easy use of some leftovers from last night's roasted chicken. It's full of protein, and if my skillet wasn't so full, I would have thrown in some more veggies too. We're trying to cut down on the processed carbs and foods this month ...
