Healthy Homemade Pancake Mix

By Carina

I hate the pancake mix that rhymes with Miss Quick. It tastes way too much like baking powder and metal. Gross. But I can't deny that having a quick mix on hand to make pancakes in the awful morning hours, is very tempting. I came up with this healthy homemade pancake mix to keep on hand. Mixing wh...

The Best Pumpkin Muffins

By Carina

My pathetic morning performance is well documented: I can barely function before 9am. Too bad that having kids not only means you're awake far, far before 9am, but that you have to make sure people are dressed, fed, and placed in a school-type environment. I'm always on the lookout for recipes t... Read More

Best Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

By Carina

  I'm always looking for hot breakfasts that I can mostly prepare the night before (I'm not the most awake person in the morning.)

Sunday Breakfast: Buttermilk Blueberry Cake

By Erin Oltmanns

I’m a lucky lady. Every night when I arrive home from work, I am greeted by two kids that are pretty darn happy to see me (a husband that is equally happy) and some sort of delicious dinner...piping hot and ready to eat. I know.  I don’t know how he does it either. When I was at home w... Read More

Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

By Erin Oltmanns

I had a BAD smoothie experience last week. I can knock back a green smoothie with the best of them, but this one was terrible. I actually dry-heaved about halfway through drinking it and had to toss it down the sink. I think I over did it on the milled flaxseed, spinach, and greek yogurt. It tast... Read More

Mini Breakfast Bread Bowls

I ran across this great idea over at Perfecting the Pairing for using stale dinner rolls and other random leftovers you might have: turn them into delicious breakfast bread bowls!

Valentine Pancakes

By Carina

I'm always freaked out by artificially colored foods, but these pale pink pancakes are a sweet way to treat kids to Valentine pancakes without emptying a bottle of Red 40 into their bellies.   Very cute idea, Christy! See Christy's full post with how she made heart pancakes here. Ot... Read More
