Cheesecake Stuffed Banana Bread

Can you relate to my banana dilem­ma? Seems like I so much as bring them home that they start get­ting speck­led. With­in hours of spot­ting the first speck­le the kids con­sid­er them over­ripe and they won’t touch them “with a 10-foot pole” (as my mom says). We all know where over­ripe bananas go — to banana heav­en aka banana bread.  Con­tin­ue read­ing

Sweet Dark Cherry ((+ Almond)) Yogurt Smoothie

This lit­tle smooth­ie has recent­ly become my favorite quick break­fast — it’s pret­ty much the best smooth­ie I’ve ever had! And because I can con­trol the amount of added sug­ar, I feel like this smooth­ie is actu­al­ly a healthy choice!

It has a short list of ingre­di­ents, is packed with fla­vor and real­ly is a breeze make. But as you can imag­ine, Con­tin­ue read­ing

Fresh Blackberry Syrup and Simple French Toast

Black­ber­ries are one of my favorite sum­mer fruits and fresh­ly picked Pacif­ic North­west black­ber­ries are about the very best a that black­ber­ry could ever hope to be. To me, a bowl of sweet black­ber­ries with a sprin­kle of sug­ar is about as good as it gets. So, turn­ing some per­fect Pacif­ic North­west black­ber­ries into a sim­ple syrup seems like a good thing to do. Then pour­ing that syrup over some home­made French toast seems like an even bet­ter thing to do. Con­tin­ue read­ing

Smoked Salmon Scramble — a Berkeley favorite!

Sev­er­al years ago, David and I stum­bled upon, what has since become one of my all-time favorite restau­rants :: Lama Beans Cafe in Berke­ley, CA. We picked this spot because online reviews raved about this lit­tle local gem — high qual­i­ty, deli­cious local food that’s rea­son­ably priced — right up my alley!

Rustic Blueberry Biscuits — a busy morning breakfast solution!

This sim­ple recipe is a per­fect solu­tion for the busy morn­ing break­fast — real­ly. These bis­cuits take less than 5 min­utes to mix and only 13 min­utes to bake. If you mea­sure every­thing out the night before, even with tak­ing the extra step to work in the short­en­ing these bis­cuits could be in your mouth before you actu­al­ly wake up. Well, maybe not quite that quick. Con­tin­ue read­ing

S’mores Scones

I will admit, chop­ping choco­late bars, quar­ter­ing jum­bo marsh­mal­lows and crush­ing gra­ham crack­ers are not on the list of break­fast-mak­ing activ­i­ties I ever imag­ined I would be check­ing off at 8 o’clock in the morn­ing. But, with that first sticky, gooey, choco­latey bite — s’mores for break­fast sud­den­ly made sense. BIG TIME. Con­tin­ue read­ing

Devil’s Pool Granola ((A Big Cedar Recipe))

I am so excit­ed to share the recipe for the best gra­nola I have ever tast­ed. Last August, the fam­i­ly & I trav­eled to Bran­son for a fun “last hoorah” before the start of the school year. While there, Big Cedar break­fast was one of our main attrac­tions. Oh my — the best break­fast. So very good!! Con­tin­ue read­ing
