Sourdough – Biscuits

Sourdough. Like the pet you never named, well, most people don’t name their sourdough starter anyway. Maybe I (Dave) should name mine. 🙂 There is a bit of a process involved with sourdough. If you are properly maintaining yours, there will be starter that you discard pretty regularly. You have a choice here. You can throw it away (don’t feel bad, everyone does it) or you can try to come up with sourdough things to do with it. In this case, I suggest taking some of the starter you were going to throw away and turn it into biscuits instead. …

Part Whole Wheat Waffles

I love when my husband makes us breakfast on the weekends. Weekend breakfast time is the best.  It’s a time to slow down, when we cook together and enjoy each other’s company over delicious food. (And when I say we cook, I mean that he cooks and I watch, we’re together at least.) And since calories don’t count on the weekend, we look forward to taking a break from our usual week day yogurt or oatmeal and splurge on delicious calorie filled breakfast items. In my opinion, my husband’s breakfasts are better than what we’d have at a restaurant and …

Our Favorite Waffle Recipe

What kind of waffle iron do you have?  (Assuming you have one, of course.) When my husband and I got married, we registered for a Belgian waffle maker.  I don’t remember why we chose that kind.  Maybe I liked the thought of those deep waffle pockets, maybe we just didn’t have a waffle maker and that’s what they offered to register for. A few months ago my husband decided that he wanted to buy a normal waffle maker.  Little did he know how long that quest was going to be.  As it turns out, what people thought of as waffles 30 …

Nutella Crescent Rolls

Are you ready for a fool proof recipe that only involves two ingredients? One of my sisters always asks me for easy recipes.  I show her a few, like chocolate chip cookies and pancakes, and she responds back to me with a “No, I mean really easy.”  The challenge was on for me to find something for her to make and I found this recipe. Let’s start with the fact that you only need two ingredients.  If two ingredients is two too many for you, then simply forget about cooking and buy something pre-made.  This is really easy to make.  …

Overnight Oats

I’m obsessed with oatmeal. I’ve been loving hot oatmeal for breakfast lately.  There’s something so delicious and comforting about it.  It’s warm and hearty and makes a delicious autumn meal.  I prefer the plain kind (I may have gotten this preference from my husband) and then I top it with fruit and cinnamon.  Blueberries are my favorite to add but we’re getting to that time of year when they start to get crazy expensive and they stop tasting good (really a rather bad combo).  Now I’m using raisins instead, and those are perfect all year round. A few months ago …
