Swedish Pancakes….kinda

November 7, 2011


This recipe is the one the kids always choose for their “birthday breakfast.”  I think they look more forward to this than birthday cake! This recipe comes from PapaChef’s family, and I don’t know that they are “swedish,” but they are similar to crepes and whatever they are called they are very delicious.  A little […]

Breakfast Pastina

September 13, 2011


I got this recipe from one of the cooking blogs I follow, Rachel & Maya.  All I have done is change the proportions so it was enough to feed my family.  This is an unusual recipe, but I am always looking for new breakfast ideas.  The pasta cost $1.67.  Not bad! 1 box pastina (tiny […]

Yellow Squash Frittata

September 13, 2011


I don’t know about you, but I currently have an over-abundance of these puppies: Anyone else in the same boat? If so, I have the recipe for you!  I was very excited to locate this recipe, but I had to tweak it a bit.  Here is the final version: one medium sweet or yellow onion, […]

This is so delicious!  It is wonderful for a brunch on Saturday or Sunday, as it is […]

Apple Craziness!

September 1, 2011


It’s that time of year again.  The nights are crisper, the colors a bit brighter, and the kids are back in school. By October I am cooking stews, soups, and gingerbread.  Lots of gingerbread.  Fall simply demands it! Fall for us also means harvest time! Well, soon it will get into the low 30s and […]

Whole Wheat Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

August 30, 2011


I got this recipe from my dear friend Blondie, and since then, we make this several times a month.  The only thing that prevents us from making these is a lack of over-ripe bananas on hand.  Sometimes we eat through the whole bunch before they are ripe enough!  Blondie also gave me another great idea: […]
