Breakfast Pizza

Have you ever made a breakfast pizza?  It’s life changing. I took all of the usual egg breakfast suspects, added some mozzarella cheese, put it all on a piece of Naan bread, and I’m calling it a breakfast pizza.  Guys, this is my favorite breakfast right now.  No joke. As with any personal pizza, you can dress it up however you like.  If you want to skip the bacon, then go for it.  If you want to add waffles on top instead of eggs and potatoes, then…  well, a carb on top of a carb might be weird but I say do …

Low Calorie Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins

Are muffins for breakfast or dessert?  This has been an ongoing debate with my husband. I think muffins are intended to be for breakfast (but can really be eaten at any time of the day) and my husband says they are more of a dessert.  Muffins are like cupcakes without frosting so I see where he is coming from.  However if coffee shops entice you to buy them with your morning coffee then I stand by my theory. I made these chocolate chip muffins the other day and they have fewer calories than your average chocolate chip muffin.  I’m always …

Lemon Scones

Scones are always a good idea. I have never made lemon scones before so I thought that I should do something about that.  I started by using my trusty base scone recipe, which I shared with you guys last year.  It’s become my go-to scone recipe because it’s delicious and easy to alter for almost any flavor that you want. There is NO lemon extract going on here.  It’s actually a forbidden ingredient in our home because quite frankly we find it tastes gross, smells gross, and really mostly reminds us of bathroom cleaner.  The key to having a great …

Spring Salad

I don’t like naming a recipe after a season because no one but you knows what that really means.  However any other title that I came up with was just too dang long and I don’t like that even more. This is a Caprese salad with lettuce, chickpeas, and pasta with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing.  See what I mean?  It’s a mouthful.  Now that tomatoes and basil are in season around here I’ve deemed this a Spring salad.  You can call it what you like, but at the end of the day it’s a bowl full of deliciousness and that’s …

Small Batch Banana Muffins

What do you do when you have one overly ripe banana left and it’s gotten too gross looking to eat? You make a small batch of banana muffins!  A batch of four muffins is the perfect amount for me and my sister. If you’re like me then you already have all of the ingredients on hand, even that handy dandy last banana that’s been sitting on the counter begging to be used.  You don’t even have a lot of dirty dishes to wash when you’re done.  That may sound silly but sometimes I’ll skip a recipe if it looks like …
