Puff-Over Pancakes

I had never heard of “puff-overs” until I married my husband. I have heard of these being referred to as a “dutch babies” and “german pancakes” but puff-over pancakes is by far the best description. These also happen to be Mr. T’s favorite breakfast because they are made up of like, 50% eggs and Mr. T LOOOVVVEESSSS eggs. So… fun fact about Taylor: today is my birthday! Yay, me! Today is turning out to be a really busy day though, so we celebrated last night. So rewind to yest

Strawberry Muffins

I’m so ready for summer and fresh berries. I’m watching the Bachelorette as I write this, and I can’t get over the awkwardness. The classic pensive stares across the corn fields or the cityscapes. The bumbling one-liners and nervous giggles. There was even one shot of a dude who was playing fetch with his like, 300 pound labrador retriever. You could tell that lab had never retrieved anything in his life. OH, and how about the yoga dude who is totally into love and the univer

Protein Packed Orange Julius

This is what I have for breakfast almost every morning and I STILL crave it every day. Some may call it a habit, but those people would be wrong. I crave it every morning because it is DANG delicious. I crave it every morning because it is healthy. I crave it every morning because it is SO easy to whip together. It’s something I look forward to having and it keeps me full for hours. Sometimes I add spinach to it and get my greens in for the day, but mostly I just love my plai

Bran Muffins

So… these bran muffins probably would have been fairly healthy if I hadn’t eaten 17 of them in one sitting. These suckers are delicious and …. moist. There. I said it. The word we all dread. But seriously, what other options do we have?! Have you ever looked up synonyms for the word moist? It will come up with words that I either: 1. never want to hear when reading about food, or 2. sound slightly inappropriate… this is a family friendly blog, people! Exhibit A: synonym: da

Macadamia Nut Granola

Happy New Year, friends! I know a lot of our resolutions are to eat better, so I thought I’d start off the year with a yummy, healthy recipe for an easy on-the-go breakfast. I love the beginning of the year. I love the anticipation of a fresh start and all of the goals we set to better ourselves. 2014 was such an amazing year. We started off the year in California with the birth of our amazing, wonderful, fun, happy, beautiful daughter. Then we were blessed to move back to Ut

Biggest Loser Pancakes

It’s almost Father’s Day, and you know what that means. It means that you’ll be waking up early to prepare Dad’s breakfast in bed. That’s what it means. I know you’re tired though, and the last thing you want to be doing is slaving in the kitchen in the wee hours of the morning. So I have a quick, easy, healthy and delicious breakfast idea that Dad is going to love. Pancakes! Piled high with his favorite fruit (or a variety of fruit) with a dollop of whipped cream, because I

Raspberry Streusel Coffee Cake

I want to eat this for breakfast, lunch, dinner, second dinner, snacks, tea time, recess, dessert, brunch, brinner and every other second of every day. This makes me happy. You want to know what else makes me happy? This. That, my friends, is the most wonderful, beautiful, amazing photo-shoot crasher on the face of the planet. I’m not even a little bit ashamed to admit that I am completely and totally infatuated with her, and she may or may not run the shots in this household

Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole

I made it off the mountain in one piece! I deserve a little bit of this deliciousness. Famous Julie makes this every Christmas morning. So, naturally it is one of my favorites. It’s incredibly good, and easy to assembly the night before so all you have to do is wake up and turn on the oven and throw it in for a warm delicious breakfast. I love breakfasts like that. As you can tell from the pictures, I am visiting Famous Julie’s house and get to use her pottery. Baby girl is g

Liege Waffles

I always thought that I loved waffles… and then I met liege waffles. That’s the day I realized I had never really known what love was. These waffles probably qualify as my favorite food. If they aren’t my favorite, they are pretty high up there. I remember the first time I discovered the magic of liege waffles. Famous Julie, my dad and I were walking around a farmer’s market, and Famous Julie spotted a vendor selling waffles. Knowing of my deep love for waffles, she turned to

Basic Breakfast Sandwich

We’re starting with the basics because: A. you can never go wrong with a classic, and B. we can (and will) build off of this sandwich. But to be able to do that, we need to start with this. Yes. Just… yes. I have heard that making your own english muffins is not only mind blowing but also fairly easy. I’m going to need to try it someday soon, but for now, these ones are from the store. Sometimes, you’re just lucky to get a meal on the table ya know? Like, yesterday morning
