    No Fuss Apple Crescents

    I was given a Avalon Bay AB-AIRFRYER 200SS Oil-Less Digital Touch AirFryer for review.  You all know how much I love my AirFryer and this new Digital Air Fryer was not a disappointment!  I can still use the AirFryer for Grilling, Baking, Roasting, & Frying.  It works just like my other (see exactly how an AirFryer works here) AirFryer, but with a fancy digital screen. The last time I was at Costco I noticed they had the large pack of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls again in stock (I think they only carry them at Holiday time).  I love having them in the house because there are so many quick and easy recipes I can make with…

    Classic French Toast

    Do you love classic french toast, but hate going to a restaurant just to have your beloved breakfast food?  After you make this french toast at home, you will not be ordering it in a restaurant ever again! I have such wonderful memories of this Sunday morning breakfast food. My dad would make this french toast after Mass for our the family and anyone else who found out my dad was making breakfast! Now, I have a certain family member who loves french toast as much as I did as a kid and would always bug me to take her out to breakfast…until I started making french toast just like my…

    Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding

    A couple of weeks ago was national donut day and my Handsome surprised the family by bringing home two boxes (we have a buy one get one free card) of Krispy Kreme Donuts.  When he first walked in to the house with those boxes of wonderfulness, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one, two, ok, maybe…three, but, by the third one that tempting delightful fried dough ring dunked in warm sugar glaze wore off, for all of us.  At first, I thought I should just throw them away, get them out of the house for this was now day 3 of having them sit on my counter not…

    Lemon Scones

    The very first time I tried a scone, I was living in England.  I was staying at a bed & breakfast, I ended up staying so long the owners used me as their live in babysitter from time to time.  Their home is also the first place I ever encountered a ghost (I will have to tell you about that at another time). Back to the lemon scones…  On the weekends, when most of their guests stayed (other than the British football team that was living there, as well (again, a story for another time) the lady of the house would make fresh baked scones for all her guests to…

    Easy Pound Cake French Toast

    Do you like Pound Cake?  Do you like French Toast? If you answered yes to either, or both of these questions, you are going to LOVE… Pound Cake French Toast! The combination came to me one day when I had been shopping at Costco.  I enjoy eating their pound cake, but it comes in a package of 3.  It’s not that my family can’t polish off all three loaves within a few day, I just don’t think that is the healthiest choice I could make for us.  But alas, I remembered I was having my family for brunch over the weekend, I could just serve the buttery pound cake with…

    French Toast Love

    The spicy scent of cinnamon and sweet vanilla is wafting around your home. Then you get a whiff of the maple syrup that is warming on the stove.  As you get closer to the kitchen you can hear the sizzle of the griddle. Ahhh… It’s French Toast Love. Thick, fluffy, rich, triangles of griddle goodness.  This tasty breakfast delight is my favorite current Sunday morning obsession! Making this French Toast is so super easy.   Most of us have all the ingredients right in our fridge and pantry. Lately, I have been buying a thick- cut loaf of bread at the bakery {because, as I said, I’m obsessed} but, it is totally unnecessary. This easy recipe…

    Egg In The Middle

    Egg in the Middle, is a childhood favorite of mine. I always looked forward to the special mornings my day would yell from the kitchen “EGG IN THE MIDDLE” is ready.  This is also one of the first things my father taught me how to cook when I was young.  Such wonderful memories. My dad was an expert at making breakfast.  Weekend mornings, the kitchen was his domain.  I think he enjoyed all the oohs and awes my mom, brother and I gave him when we sat down at the table.  He could cook any type of breakfast from the very simple to the very fancy, like eggs benedict, which…
