What’s for breakfast – Banana scones and banana bread

We had some bananas to use up, and while I love our favourite banana crumb muffins, I wanted to try something different.  My first stop was The Pioneer Woman where I found her recipe for banana bread.  Words cannot describe how good this bread is!  It’s got almost a cake-like texture. I still had a banana left over, and I stumbled upon this recipe for coffee banana scones.  They’ve been a huge hit in our house, even Ashlyn loves them!

What’s for breakfast – waffles and mok honey

I love weekend breakfasts, when we have more time to have something a little more fun than the usual cereal/bagel.  One of our favourite things to make is waffles and mok honey (homemade syrup), thanks to the recipes from my good friend Joleen.  It’s easy, delicious, and very impressive to guests when you tell them that you made the syrup yourself!  Add some turkey bacon and a big mug of coffee and you’ve got the perfect Sunday morning.  Waffles Ingredients: 2 eggs 2 cups buttermilk (or Read more […]

What’s for breakfast – Zucchini & carrot loaf

This recipe is from an old Alberta Agriculture Home Echonomics Branch book called “Zucchini, zucchini, zucchini…”.  I’ve made a teeny change and added some carrots and flax seeds; my changes are in pink.  This loaf freezes really well, so I baked it in 4 small loaves instead of one big one so I could put a couple in the freezer to enjoy when the new baby arrives.  Enjoy! Zucchini loaf Ingredients: 2 cups flour 2 tsp baking soda 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 cup butter 1 Read more […]

What’s for (Christmas) Breakfast – Frittata

I think this used to be called a “wifesaver” back in the day.  I originally got the recipe from Kraft Canada but it looks like they’ve changed it since I found it a few years ago.  I’ve made a few modifications based on our favourite foods, but you can use whatever veggies and meat you want.  It’s a tradition on Christmas morning in our household – I love it because I put it together the night before, then throw it in the oven in the morning and it bakes up while we open presents. Frittata Ingredients: 4 Read more […]

What’s for breakfast: Eggnog muffins

I love muffins and I love eggnog. When my friend posted a link to eggnog muffins I knew it was something I had to try ASAP.  I’m so glad that I did!  I haven’t tried the spiced butter yet but I plan to give that a shot a little closer to Christmas. A few notes about what I did differently: on the recommendation of my friend, I did not bake the muffins, dip into butter and then dip into the topping.  Instead, I combined the topping and sprinkled it onto the muffins before baking.  SO GOOD. I Read more […]
