• French Toast Bake

    I’ve talked about my love of brunch before. I’ve also talked about my goal to reduce waste in our house, especially when it comes to food. Which basically makes this recipe for French Toast Bake the absolute best thing ever. Why? Because it’s French Toast for god’s sake AND because it uses up the heels of the bread that we never eat, therefor saving it from being thrown out or tossed in the compost bin. That’s some seriously sanctimonious french toast right there.

  • Breakfast Potatoes

    Soft and tender on the inside and delightfully crispy on the outside, these breakfast potatoes are sure to be the perfect accompaniment to your next meal. My favorite thing to eat growing up was potatoes. It didn’t matter how you cooked them, I would eat them (as long as they didn’t have cheese on them, of course). I liked them fried, mashed, sautéed, or roasted. In my twenties, when I was living on my own and responsible for feeding myself, I would make myself potatoes a lot. As in, for every meal. Sometimes they came out of a box (hello,…

  • Rainbow Egg Bake

    Whether you’re having family and friends over for brunch or simply looking for an easy weeknight meal, this rainbow egg bake is all that and more. The best part? It’s easily customizable to whatever you have on hand. I love cooking for other people. As a teenager, I would live for the days when my parents would go out of town so I could have my friends over and cook for them. I’d clip my favorite recipes from magazines like Bon Appétit and Cooking Light and imagine how to pull together a complete meal. As an adult in my first…

  • Mini Blueberry Muffins

    I’m not sure what it is about mini muffins, but Anna cannot keep her hands off of them. It doesn’t matter what I put in them or how often I make them, they are her absolute favorite. So when it came time to make her some snacks for camp, the first thing she asked for was muffins. Mini blueberry muffins to be precise. Never one to refuse her requests for cooking together, I added muffin making to our #the100dayproject list for the week.

  • Banana Bread

    Make sure to bookmark this banana bread recipe because it’s an absolute winner. The bread is moist, sweet but not overly so and just plain delicious. It also uses up 4 ripe bananas (yay!) and is dairy-free without even trying (double yay!). For some reason, we’ve had a ridiculous amount of bananas on the verge of going bad in our house this week. When I asked Anna what we should do with them, I expected her to say something along the lines of chocolate banana muffins or frozen banana bites. But she surprised me and requested banana bread. The surprise…

  • Sheet Pan Pancakes

    Anna has been begging to make things in the kitchen lately. First it was all things spa-related. Then it turned into all things chocolate related. Her most recent obsessions? Sheet pan pancakes. I’m not sure why she was so into these since I’ve only made them once (a full year ago, no less), but she’s been asking about them for almost a week. She even requested that we have blueberries and bananas with them. I had originally planned to make them for dinner on Friday since they are so easy, but the husband had randomly ordered himself pancakes that morning…
