Oatmeal Latte

I’ve got the perfect breakfast to start your Fall morning. Before I get to the breakfast, let’s talk about the elephant in the room.  I took a little break from blogging.  My husband and I vacationed in Colorado for 10 glorious days and we had an amazing time.  I’m still working on the blog post to share all the deets with you guys and hopefully I’ll have that ready soon. When we got back from vacation I had every intention of jumping right back into blogging but I just wasn’t feeling it.  This is the first time in four years …

Avocado Egg in a Bagel

It’s only Wednesday but I’ve already got “weekend breakfast” on the brain. A “weekend breakfast” is the kind of breakfast that you indulge in on a day when you don’t care about calories (because we all know that calories don’t count on weekends).  Maybe your Saturday morning will involve some fluffy pancakes, or a huge stack of waffles, or even some yummy apple pie (there’s no judging here).  Last weekend I decided to combine two of my favorite breakfasts into one fantabulous meal. This meal is part egg in a bread/hole (depending on what you call it), part avocado toast, and …

Chocolate Chip Scones

What makes brunch so fabulous? Perhaps brunch is popular because it’s an event where it’s socially acceptable to drink champagne before noon.  Maybe you love it because it’s a good way to have breakfast, lunch and dessert at the same meal.  Think of brunch like a diner where you can order a turkey sandwich with fries while your husband has french toast.  It also means you can have dessert more than once in just one day.  I think that might be the best part.  #sweetjunkie If you’re hosting a brunch (like for Easter this Sunday), then scones are a must have addition.  Just …

Best… Crumb Cake… Ever

Here’s the third installment in my Best Ever series!  What’s it all about?  Click here to get the scoop. Today I’m sharing with you the, Best… Crumb Cake… Ever.  If you like big crumbs then this is the crumb cake to end all crumb cakes. I’ve made roughly a bazillion (roughly 😉 ) crumb cakes and coffee cakes.  Wait, can you really compare crumb cakes to coffee cakes?  They are similar but definitely different.  Which one is better?  I’m getting side tracked.  Let’s save that debate for another day.  For the purposes of today’s post it doesn’t really matter because this crumb cake trumps …

Broccoli Quiche

Quiche is always a good idea for brunch.  Am I right or am I right? For one of our hosting gigs last month, I wanted to make my crustless spinach quiche.  I’ve been making that recipe for years and it’s always a winner.  I thought I had spinach at home but I was wrong.  (Ugh, must pay better attention when making the grocery list.)  I didn’t want to spend 30 minutes in the car to make a grocery run (and I didn’t want to ask, I mean beg, my husband to go either) so I did some quick thinking.  I …
