What’s for breakfast – “Starbucks” Pumpkin Scones

I originally posted this recipe in September 2012 and I’ve been making it regularly ever since! To save some time in the morning, I made the dough last night and baked the scones this morning and they were the best I’ve ever had, so I’ve updated the recipe to include this step. The two glazes are an extra special treat; usually, I just make the spiced glaze and that’s more than enough sweetness. Enjoy! If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you are probably aware of my addiction enjoyment Read more […]

What’s for breakfast – Apple Loaf

We have a lot of apples in our house after our apple picking excursion so when my good friend Joleen sent me a recipe for apple loaf I made it as soon as I could!  She’s never sent me a recipe that wasn’t a winner and this is no different.  The top of the loaf tastes like it has a streusel and it’s excellent with coffee, tea or warm apple cider. APPLE LOAF Ingredients 3 cups flour 2 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 cup vegetable oil 2 Read more […]

What’s for breakfast – Healthy Pumpkin Muffins

PUMPKIN MUFFINS Ingredients 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour 1 large egg 2 tbsp unsalted butter 1 cup packed brown sugar 1.25 tsp baking soda 1 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1 cup pure pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling) 1/2 cup buttermilk Read more […]

What’s for breakfast – Gingerbread Pancakes

We’re big breakfast fans around here.  Every weekend, Ashlyn wakes up and askes for either pancakes of waffles with “sup-ups” (syrup) and I like to have a few options for variety.  A friend of mine shared this recipe on Facebook and it’s made it into the recipe book – Rowan even had a taste and loved it!  It’s got that holiday feel, perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas breakfasts with friends and family. GINGERBREAD PANCAKES Ingredients 3 eggs 1/2 cup milk 1 tbsp molasses 1 Read more […]

What’s for breakfast – banana pancakes

My little monkey Ashlyn loves her bananas, but if we buy more than 4 guaranteed there will be a few that go mushy before we get to them.  For a change of pace, I decided to make banana pancakes on the weekend for the first time using this recipe with a few little tweeks.  Ashlyn loved helping to crack the eggs and mash the bananas; she’s becoming quite the little helper in the kitchen. Add some syrup and turkey bacon and you’ve got Ashlyn’s favourite breakfast!  This makes about 6 pancakes Read more […]
