Breakfast

Belgian Liege Waffles

Roger and I had the liege waffles at Moulin, a French cafe in Laguna one morning.  He suggested I try to make them at home for our neighbor Carol who was coming over for Sunday morning coffee.  They turned out so amazing!  I made the dough at night and let it warm up in the morning.  It took about 2…

Sausage and Egg Casserole with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Mozzerella

This always turns out delicious!  I even overcooked it last time and it was still amazing.  We had the Cairns over for coffee and liege waffles and I made this to go with it.  I couldn’t get sweet Italian sausage the night before so I used Jimmy Dean regular breakfast sausage that comes in the one pound tube and it…

Gluten Free Pancakes – Citrus Trio with Blueberries & Raspberries

This is an adaptation of lemon poppyseed pancakes from PaleOMG that I got from Cathy Ostergar.  I made a few changes to the recipe and loved the result! Ingredients 3 eggs, whisked 1 coconut Chobani like yogurt container about 1/2 cup 1/4 cup almond milk 1 tablespoon raw honey 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract zest of 1…

French Lentil Salad with Feta, Cranberries and Walnuts

        I made this for the first time for breakfast!  I found it on the back of a fancy bag of French lentils from Gelson’s. It doesn’t seem very breakfasty but it was so delicious!  And salads for breakfast are trendy now.  I put two over easy eggs on top which was amazing!  Roger said, “You should…

Lemon Curd Cream Cheese Sticky Rolls – Contestant #3

Aaagh!!  It looks like I will be making yet another batch of lemon buns!  Overcooked and under salted!  So much potential unfulfilled!  The pendulum swung too far the other way this time.  Contestant #3 seemed like it was going to top them both but fell short.  These were good but overcooking them definitely took away from what they could have…

Lemon Sticky Buns with Lemony Cream Cheese Glaze – Contestant #1

I am obsessed with citrus and sticky buns now!  I like lemon sweet things and lemon savory things.  But my two daughters don’t like lemon things.  I thought this was weird until I remembered back to making lemon bars when they were young and one of my daughters said, “It tastes like dishwasher detergent.”  What?!  Then I realized I used…

Glazed Orange Sweet Rolls – Contestant #2

I came across two recipes online that took hold of me and wouldn’t let go!  They both sounded so good but couldn’t decide which to make and which would taste better.  My husband Roger has been out of town and it is January, so I decided I would have a Sweet Roll Competition in my kitchen. Meet contestant #2 This…

Not Your Typical Egg Burrito!

This was a first for me!  Henry and I have been eating a lot of tacos with all the taco meat I have.  That smoked Spanish paprika was so good I had to make more of it.   But I ran out of the corn tortillas even though I had everything else.  We were snowed in for the weekend so…

Blueberry Pancake (variation of Apple Pancake)

I have made the Apple Pancake many many times, but this morning I had lots of blueberries so I thought I would see what happens.  I sautéed the blueberries in butter and sugar and some cinnamon.  Once I had a nice hot boiling pan of blueberries in syrup I poured over one recipe of my buttermilk pancake recipe and cooked…
