I feel as though I may have a problem. My love for breakfast pastries seems to be frequently appearing on my blog. It could be worse right? At least these are healthy breakfast sweets. But seriously, I can’t help myself. I’m at it again. This time, you’re in for a treat. This may be one of the most successful recipes I have ever made. It had rave reviews, and no left overs. Prepare yourselves.
I don’t often eat cereal for breakfast, but when I do, I prefer it to be on the sweeter side. I like crunchy, sweet cereals instead of bland, unsweetened ones. For this reason, I never really enjoyed granola. It always seemed weird to me to mix dry oats with milk. It didn’t seem like cereal. It seemed like a soggy mess to me. However, shortly after Christmas, Samuel and I went out for breakfast. On the menu was a house-made vanilla almond granola. For some reason I was drawn to this granola for breakfast. It was entirely delicious, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it!
Happy New Year! This post goes right along with the Four Ingredient Biscuits from yesterday. It’s my humble opinion that you can’t have biscuits without gravy. A nice, fluffy biscuit with warm gravy is one of the best combinations ever invented. I have also found homemade gravy to be more delicious than the dry packet mixes you make with milk or water. This recipe is so easy, you’ll never need a packet mix again!
Once again, I am on a brinner roll. Breakfast for dinner makes a weekly appearance at my house. I love brinner. It’s almost a comfort food for me. Plus, the leftovers at brinner are perfect for breakfast the next day! This time, I decided to make something from scratch I never have before: biscuits. You won’t believe how easy this recipe is. You can also make these four ingredient biscuits with simple ingredients you may already have.
If you have read or scrolled through some of my previous posts, you already know I love brinner. You also probably know I love sweet items at breakfast time. Oh, and you know my recipe for Cinnamon and Vanilla Waffles and Lite French Toast by heart. Well in keeping with the spirit of waffles and French toast, I wanted to complete the trifecta of traditional breakfast sweets. Who would I be if I made waffles and french toast but not the much loved pancake?
So, this post won’t really have a true recipe at the end. The reason for this is because you can totally customize this dish to fit your wants. I love recipes like this because as a picky eater, I often have to adapt recipes to my tastes anyway. Breakfast foods are one of the easiest to manipulate to your own tastes. I happen to love brinner (breakfast for dinner), so this dish came along at dinner time in my house.
I have a few posts about my love for breakfast pastries. I just cannot keep away from pastries at breakfast, I swear. However, I will say this post was not inspired by breakfast. I actually made these pastries as an accompaniment to a dinner dish. I love to have weekly “brinners,” or breakfast for dinner. I just love eating breakfast for dinner. So, this was the best of both worlds- breakfast pastries for dinner!
My dad once worked in the kitchen of a restaurant for many years. He would occasionally bring me crumbles or cobblers from his work when I lived back at home during my school years. I have eaten a lot of crumbles and cobblers. There came a time when I just couldn’t eat them any more. A few years have gone by since then, and I haven’t really had a crumble or cobbler since. This week, I was finally ready to dive back in to the world of bubbling fruit and crumbly toppings.
If you have read some of my other posts, you know I love breakfast pastries. It’s one of the few times you can get away with having dessert for breakfast. I have realized not everyone loves super sweet pastries first thing in the morning. Shame on them, I know. But alas, I am occasionally one of those people. So, I wanted to make a lightly sweet breakfast pastry anyone could enjoy. I have attempted with outrageous success the Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze, and now comes the next scone: blueberry.
In my Cinnamon and Vanilla Waffles post, I discuss my love for waffles. There is another breakfast food I enjoy every few weekends or so. It has a nice crunch on the outside and a soft fluffy inside. It has a touch of vanilla, sweetness, and cinnamon all throughout. This weekend I made one of the easiest breakfast foods: French toast.
