Blueberry Banana Pancakes

I love this recipe. It doesn’t require any eggs and instead uses banana! It has way more flavor and it’s a great way to use up old bananas. I serve them with fried eggs, Maple Pepper Hash Browns, sautéed mushrooms, baked bacon and maple sausage patties. 1 1/2 cup Flour 3 teaspoon Baking Powder 1Continue reading “Blueberry Banana Pancakes”

Loaded Mashed Potato Bake

I decided to try something new as a side dish this Labor Day. I was in the middle of baking a Strawberry Rhubarb pie when the idea to create a bacon lattice top for a mashed potato dish would be not only delicious, but also a bit of a show stopper! It really didn’t disappoint.Continue reading “Loaded Mashed Potato Bake”

Pork & Mushroom Stew with Rosemary Cornbread

It’s finally cooled off a bit so I decided to make Pork Stew with Cornbread. It turned out great! The cornbread was just sweet enough to compliment the herbs and spices without taking over. I’d never actually made Pork Stew before, but I just assumed it was similar in preparation to beef stew. Yes, there areContinue reading “Pork & Mushroom Stew with Rosemary Cornbread”

Jalapeño Popper Scalloped Potatoes

I had several requests for this recipe, but needed to type it up. The drawback of just throwing stuff together is that you have to try and remember measurements. I doubled the bacon in the recipe below because I think it needed more. It is bacon after all! More is definitely more! 3 large Russet Potatoes;Continue reading “Jalapeño Popper Scalloped Potatoes”

Breakfast Burrito

Breakfast Burritos are one of my favorite breakfast dishes! Cheap, filling and so quick to make! I thought I had some chorizo, but I had to use bacon and sausage instead.

Pesto Cauliflower and Carrot Soup

My local grocery store had a sale on Cauliflower and I got 9 lbs for $3. I didn’t really know what to do with it all but it’s overcast and dreary out, so perfect soup weather! I made a giant jar of pesto the other day and thought they’d go well together. It was delicious!Continue reading “Pesto Cauliflower and Carrot Soup”

Sausage Egg and Pepper Croissant Braid

I love breakfast for dinner. Eggs, sausage and croissants are amazing at all hours of the day or night. It was a major hit for everyone! I’ve been extra exhausted lately so I used store-bought dough because making laminated dough is a pain and a half. 2 packages Croissant Dough or Puff Pastry 1 cupContinue reading “Sausage Egg and Pepper Croissant Braid”
