Good Morning Muffins

I like to keep muffins in the freezer for Eric to pack in his suitcase for breakfast when he travels, which is every week.  Sometimes he just likes to have a cup of coffee and a muffin in his room before he heads out for the day.  I played around with this muffin for a while before I nailed it.

Succotash and Cheese Grits

It has been a hot mess in our home for a few weeks.  Carpet installed, blinds installed, and a new refrigerator……..all in one day!!!  It was a long process, moving all the furniture from the bedrooms, emptying all the closets, taking all the shelving our of closets and living like vagabonds until it came in.  Carpet arrived and it was flawed, had to wait another four weeks.  Blinds came in, every window was wrong except for my kitchen bay window.  The refrigerator, well, it took over two months to make its appearance but he was worth the wait!  Edna has a baby brother.  Meet Earl!!!!

Anytime Strata

If you have been reading my blog for a while, it is no secret that I love Saturday morning breakfast.  It is my favorite meal to prepare.  Everything on Saturday morning moves in a slower pace in our home.  I can take my time doing prep work and we definitely take our time eating the meal.  It’s that ‘easy morning feeling’ that I love so much.  This Strata is a perfect Saturday morning meal.

Chocolate Pecan Bread Pudding

I felt so good to be back in my kitchen this weekend with my beloved oven, Edna.  I missed her and she missed me!  I wanted to treat Sir Streusel to his favorite Bread Pudding, but with a twist.  You can find his favorite Bread Pudding here.  I wanted to add a little chocolate to it, for me!  

I baked this for us to eat later in the day for dessert, but we dove straight in for breakfast! Continue reading Chocolate Pecan Bread Pudding

Punks, Frittata, Macaroons, Pepper Nachos, and Cheesecake

Let me start this post by stating that it is full of recipes from my weekend with my punks.  I have all of the recipes located at the end of the post, just keep scrolling!

Last week was a bonus week for this Mama, my Raleigh punks came home!  They normally only come home during Christmas but one punk couldn’t make it this past holiday so I got a bonus!  I literally could not stop smiling last week.

This was the first of three runs to the grocery store plus a run to the seafood market.

The past couple of weeks I have found some amazing Florida strawberries in my grocery store.  It’s early for strawberries but these were AMAZING!  As I was snacking on them during my car ride home, I got a vision of muffins, lots and lots of muffins.

Migas

I love Saturday morning breakfast.  It is my favorite meal of the week to prepare.  No time table, no clock watching, no having to get in on the table before everyone is rushing out the door, just a relaxing morning in the kitchen at my own speed.  We love Migas.  Migas is a dish of tortilla chips mixed into a scrambled egg mixture.
