Blueberry Dutch Baby

On the weekends, after my second cup of coffee, I love to make breakfast. This Blueberry Dutch Baby is one of my favorites, it’s not too involved and is quick to make. It works out fine for me because I love my coffee in the morning! I can quickly get this in the oven and then sit, with my third cup of coffee while it bakes…ideal. Best of all, it tastes really delicious! Can you tell that I’m not a morning person?  Continue reading

Hot Cross Buns and Bread

It may be snowing out today, but I know spring is on the way. It’s been a long winter here! Easter will be here soon, and it never seems right without some Hot Cross Buns. I will make these again on Easter! Every year I get into the mood for Hot Cross Buns and this year is no different. I have tried various recipes and the one I made this year really hit the mark. The blend of spices is just right for what I like. Like so many other foods, what you grew up eating and liking, sets the bar for something tasting “right” when you get older.

Almond Butterhorns

I simply cannot get over how good these Almond Butterhorns are. I had to freeze the extras so that I wouldn’t just keep eating them. I took some to my 94 year old mother and she loved them too. My friend, Kim,  gave me the recipe that was from an 81 year old friend of a friend. Kim knew it was the type of recipe I would love and she was so right! It is not a difficult recipe but you do need to start the day ahead.

Cranberry Orange Walnut Bread

I saw fresh cranberries last week at the grocery store and they jumped into my grocery cart. I quickly scooted over to where the oranges were and picked up some. I knew that I wanted to share this recipe, on the blog, as soon as I could. I also wanted to have this bread to eat! I’ll confess that I was eating a piece as I took the blog pictures. It’s so good. Don’t wait, make some with the first cranberries that find their way into your shopping cart!

Apple Orchard Cider Doughnuts

So far I have made Apple Orchard Cinnamon Rolls and Apple Orchard Apple Pie and posted those recipes. When I was buying my apples last weekend, I also bought fresh apple cider. There was a long line to buy apple cider doughnuts, so I didn’t buy any. But the thought was in my head and I just had to make my own. I’m sure glad I did, these are so good, in fact they are fantastic! Cider and doughnuts, they just go together.

Apple Orchard Cinnamon Rolls

These are the best soft, gooey, full of apple cinnamon rolls you will ever eat!  They are just bursting with fresh apple flavor. These rolls are a tradition, I make them every year after a trip to the apple orchard. That trip happened last week and I couldn’t wait to make them.
