Peach Puff Pastry Tarts

Peach Puff Pastry Tarts

I loooove puff pastry. From the freezer section, I mean. Not sure I’d enjoy making it from scratch-all those thin layers of dough, not to mention all the buttering and folding, and washing and drying. Wait-that’s the laundry. But the buttering and folding of scratch […]

Peachy Doughnut Muffins

Peachy Doughnut Muffins

It’s my one of my favorite seasons! I don’t mean summer, either-I’m talking peach season. There aren’t many dishes that peaches don’t play well with. They taste great in desserts and savory recipes, too, not to mention breads and muffins. I usually fill a slightly […]

Breakfast that can be dessert, too? Gimme! These funfetti waffles have a delicious vanilla flavor that reminds me of cake. We’ve eaten them with fruit and yogurt (and syrup), as well as topped with ice cream and chocolate syrup. They’re simple, and made with pantry […]

Blueberry Cream Cheese Filled Waffles

Blueberry Cream Cheese Filled Waffles

That’s right, cream cheese filled, not sitting on top, and not melted into the batter. Sweet little pockets of cinnamon/sugar cream cheese throughout your waffle. For just a few more minutes of prep time you can enjoy loads more flavor at breakfast or brunch. Let’s make blueberry waffles […]

Whole Wheat Blueberry Streusel Pancakes

Whole Wheat Blueberry Streusel Pancakes

“Decadent-healthy.” Is that a thing? Let’s make it one. Whole wheat flour and antioxidant-rich blueberries together with a streusel topping=decadent, but still on the healthy side. There is the extra step of making the streusel-but it’s so worth it! Maybe reserve this for a lazy weekend […]
