Hash Brown Cups with Baked Eggs

One of these days I'm going to raise my own chickens just so I can gather my own eggs. If there is anything I seem to be constantly running out of, it's eggs. I can buy two or three dozen at a time and still, before I know it, I'm using my last one. This morning, I used my last one (or last six really) on these hash brown cups with baked eggs. They take a bit of time (about an hour)  but they are so simple that they are still a go-to item for breakfast or brunch. They only take one bowl and a muffin tin to make and you can eat them with … [Read more...]

Honey Walnut Breakfast Loaf

My favorite thing about fall isn't sweaters, boots, or pumpkin spice lattes, it's baking. I bake all year round but it's more acceptable in the fall when the weather is cooling down and the warmth from the oven is more welcomed. This time of year I'm always baking cookies, cakes, and pies as I try to figure out what I'll be bringing to the holiday parties that are sure to be starting soon. The other night my husband mentioned wanting to try baking mini-pies in cupcake pans so that'll be on the horizon soon. First though, I dug out my breakfast … [Read more...]

Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats with a Praline Almond Crumble

When I was growing up oatmeal was always a breakfast staple. My mom would frequently make oatmeal with brown sugar and bananas. I'd eat it on toast almost like an oatmeal sandwich, haha. It was so good! These days I rarely make a pot of oatmeal for breakfast but I have fallen hard for overnight oats. They can be prepared the night before in about 5 minutes and they are ready to eat as soon as you wake up. What's not to love about that?  It's almost fall and right about now is when all of our local farmers are opening up their orchards … [Read more...]

Light & Fluffy Blueberry Pancakes

Today is all about pancakes because if there’s one thing I love about the weekend it’s being able to take advantage of quieter days to indulge in big family breakfasts. During the week our breakfasts are smoothies, egg + cheese biscuits, or oatmeal with toast. On the weekend however it’s french toast with caramelized bananas, blueberry pancakes, or other big breakfast casserole. This weekend is all about blueberry pancakes. Since I made that triple berry cobbler recently, I had a lot of blueberries hanging out in my freezer. I thought … [Read more...]

Easy Egg White Biscuits with Bacon + Spinach

This post is not sponsored by companies mentioned below. My love for them is my own. Now that I'm working from home, I'm able to spend more time in the kitchen. I hadn't realized how much I'd missed being in the kitchen until we moved up here. Over the last two months, I've been back to cooking multiple times a day and baking sugar cookies (Brandon's favorite!). The biggest change has come with breakfast though. When we lived in Atlanta, we had to leave so early to try to beat traffic that breakfast was usually a bowl of cereal or a shake … [Read more...]

Overnight Blueberry French Toast Casserole

Happy Monday, friends! I'm loving today for two reasons - I'm on vacation AND I remembered to prep breakfast before bed last night. That means I was able to sleep in late and wake up to the immediate smell of my Overnight Blueberry French Toast Casserole in the oven. When I remember to prep breakfast (which is usually on Friday night, oddly enough) this is one of our favorite go-to's.  Brandon and I both love blueberries and I'm a sucker for french toast (he prefers pancakes). I'll usually wake up and pop this in the oven to bake while I … [Read more...]
