Buttermilk Pancakes

I’ve been a total slacker for the last few weeks –I have a few posts backed up and ready to go, but between learning more about photo editing and considering changing up the overall blog look and web-hosting situation around here, I’ve only managed to post once a week for the past few weeks. I’ll do better in the coming weeks! I promise.

Do you ever just crave pancakes? Every so often, usually at some weird time of day (hello, 9pm pancake craving!), I just want a warm stack of pancakes. It just happens. I can’t explain it. Sometimes, a girl just needs some freakin’ pancakes. Continue reading

oatmeal muffins

Welcome to #PolarVortex2014. Ok, well, the vortex is over for us, but let’s recap. Also, the only thing I can ever think of when I see hashtags now is this.

oatmeal cinnamon chip scones


The majority of the baked goods I make are supposed to come to work with me. This affords me two things: 1) an additional set of taste-testers, and 2) the ability to avoid the responsibility of eating all of everything and gaining 10lbs a week as a result. I had every intention of distributing these scones to my coworkers…but…but….I just couldn’t do it. They’re just too delicious and too easy of a breakfast to give up so easily. Continue reading

cake for breakfast

berry cake

Sometimes, cake is a breakfast food. I fully endorse the “cake for breakfast” mentality. Cake for breakfast can totally make a weekend morning epic. Cake for breakfast can put a spring in your step for the rest of the day.

This cake might actually rock your breakfast world. I should also tell you that this cake can be eaten at all times of the day, not just breakfast. But it’s better for breakfast. Continue reading
