BRUNCH VS BUFFET

“Never test the depth of a river with both feet.”  Warren Buffet Although I intended to search the internet for quotes about buffets, as in a restaurant offering, quotes from Warren Buffet prevailed.  I like the one above. This blog entry, however, is a tribute to Sunday morning brunch.  These are amazing experiences especially when…

CUPBOARD GRANOLA

“Happiness is enough leftovers so you don’t have to cook.” As I was organizing my hallway food cupboard I discovered a plethora of dried fruit, some nuts, a bit of coconut, and a bag with about two cups of gluten free granola.  I knew I was on the cusp of great breakfast and/or snack food.…

PORK AND YAM HASH

“I eat goals for breakfast.” Here’s a simple dish that can be prepared the night before, warmed, and served with an egg or two.  If you’re not hungry early in the morning it would also make a great lunch.  So next time you grill a bunch of pork sausage, that includes brats, set one or…

BLUEBERRY BREAKFAST BAKE

“I believe in chocolate for breakfast.” This is another great recipe for a crowd.  It’s also great because you can prepare most of it the night before.  It is not, however, gluten and sugar free, unless you hunt down some gluten free bread.  Do whatever you gotta do. INGREDIENTS: 12 slices day old bread, crusts…

GLUTEN FREE PANCAKES

“When you love what you have you have everything you need.” My friend (defined as someone who will share recipes) served these one morning.  These pancakes have a slightly nutty flavor and are great next to a serving of bacon and eggs.  No gluten laden toast needed! INGREDIENTS: 1 large egg 2 cups buttermilk 1/4…

GRAPEFRUIT

“May life be crazy enough to be interesting and sane enough to be safe.” So who is going to read a blog about grapefruit!  A goodly proportion of the population can’t even eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice because of the drugs they take.  That just seems wrong.  Almost as wrong as raisins. For those…

BREAKFAST TOMATO CUPS

“That’s too much bacon.”  Said by no one, ever. This is such a great dish because it gets everyone to the breakfast table with just the aroma.  However, if you are the only one to get to the table you can eat as many as you make.  Winner! INGREDIENTS: tomatoes, large, one per person eggs,…

EGG MUFFINS

I wonder if clouds ever look down and say, “Hey look, that one is shaped like an idiot.” In my quest for fast and easy, referring to recipes, I recently revisited the recipe for egg muffins.  This recipe is great because it’s fast, easy, and appropriate for clearing the fridge of dibs and dabs.  Dibs…

MICROWAVE OMELETTE

“I love the smell of possibility in the morning.” For those of you who have been following, my water and whine posts have reared their ugly little heads lately.   My kitchen is undergoing a minor remodel and I’m without a sink, countertop, and running water in the kitchen for twenty-nine more days.  But who’s…

SAY CHEESE

“Life is too short for fake butter, cheese, or people.” The other day I purchased a block of cheddar cheese.  What I didn’t notice on the label was the word, smoked.  Yes, I’d purchased a block of smoked cheddar.  To me, it had a richer flavor than regular cheddar.  A little too rich for my…
