Cheese Danish (Redux)

I’m re-sharing a classic today. The other day I did say that I was going to try to share less salads and more comfort food recipes, so here you go. Go big or go home. ūüôā My parents came over to visit this past weekend. My papa loves breakfast pastries so I wanted to make something for him. I couldn’t find a new recipe to try so I looked through my recipe index and found the cheese danish that I originally posted in 2013. I haven’t made it in ages but it was a hit when I made it back …

Raspberry Cheese Danish (Redux)

When I want to cook something for my dad I instantly go to breakfast and pastries because that’s his favorite. My dad says that he likes everything that I cook for him, even my chicken dinners. I’m not sure that I entirely believe him because he’s not a chicken fan. (Now you know where I get my chicken aversion from. ūüėČ ) Nevertheless, I’ll stick to pastries because I know it’s always a winner and I’m making a oldie but goodie today in his honor. If you’ve followed me for a long time then this danish will look familiar because …

Chocolate Nut Strudel

Chocolate for breakfast is always a good idea. This strudel is not strictly for breakfast.¬† In fact, my husband would probably say that this is really a dessert.¬† I see bakery shops sell this kind of pastry with coffee. ¬†You drink coffee with¬†breakfast. ¬†So naturally a pastry like this strudel should be eaten for¬†breakfast. ¬†(Take that logic!) ¬†I‚Äôm a chocoholic so maybe you can’t go by me.¬† This is not meant to be a big debate.¬† If you make this strudel, you can eat it whatever time of the day you want.¬† ūüôā I can’t even begin to tell you …

Giant Blueberry Hand Pie

Is it bad when your laziness¬†is the inspiration for a recipe? My husband has been after me to make my Strawberry Hand Pies¬†again.¬† The last crumb of those wasn’t even gone and he was already putting in his request.¬† That made me happy because I knew I had a real winner of a recipe. Here’s the¬†clincher…¬† Even though the strawberry hand pies are crazy delicious, they are¬†a pain in the butt to make… at least for me.¬† The steps are actually quite easy, but the perfectionist in me takes it to a whole other level (and not a good one).¬† …

Cinnamon Rolls

Guys, I couldn’t be more excited to share today’s recipe with you… seriously excited, like you just told a kid they’re going to Disney World kind of excited. ¬†I’ll refrain from the screams and eeks, but I’m telling you right now that this is¬†absolutely¬†my favorite recipe this year so far. My husband is the brains behind this creation¬†so I’ll happily turn it over to him. ¬†Excuse me while I grab my fat pants. If preparing to make this recipe has taught me anything, it’s that cinnamon roll recipes are as widely varied as they are a pain in the butt …
