Bowl of pumpkin oatmeal topped with butter and pecans

Thanksgiving Oatmeal

Hello and welcome back! Can you believe that 2021 will be over in just a few weeks? I feel though as if most of it has gone by in an effort to forget 2020. Whether you had the best year, or worst year, I hope these last few weeks of […]

Smoked salmon and dill cream cheese toast with cucumbers

Smoked Salmon and Dill Cream Cheese Toast

As I mentioned in one of my recent posts, I was very happy with the bread from Nigella Lawson’s cookbook. I used it to make this smoked salmon toast served with dill cream cheese. I also added a few slices of fresh cucumber for a refreshing crunch. If I had […]

Green Onion and Cheddar Crustless Quiche

I suppose that quiche without the crust becomes a frittata, but in my mind, quiche is just a tiny bit more elegant. Or at least, it implies more elegance. Quiche of any sort always makes me think of having a girlfriend over for a lunch day, catching up on each […]

Two pieces of breakfast sausage casserole on a plate

Breakfast Sausage Casserole with Cheddar

My mother-in-law is famous for her brunch. So much so, that if you ask one of our nieces for her preferred meal, she’ll say “Grandma’s brunch”. One of my favorite dishes on her brunch menu has always been a breakfast casserole with lots of juicy sausage, melted Cheddar on top, […]

Plate with scrambled eggs topped with salt, pepper, cheese and green onions

Soft and Cheesy Scrambled Eggs

Hello and welcome back to the blog! I took every step I could to have a relaxing and slow holiday season. That is part of what explains my prolonged absence from social media. I must say I am considering making it a permanent thing. So, be sure to sign up […]

Pastry on a plate and decorative pumpkin with letter C

Puff Pastry with Leftover Halloween Candy

2020 turned out like nothing we’d ever imagined or hoped for. I remember seeing all these posts on social media towards the end of 2019, about 2020 and all the holidays that would fall on the weekend. Including Halloween. Now, not to say that those posts didn’t age well… But […]

Avocado toast with bacon and tomato

Avocado Bacon Toast with Tomato

Hello and welcome back! Recently, I analyzed my website’s content and realized that I didn’t have a whole lot of breakfast recipes. Which is ironic, because I absolutely love breakfast – homemade breakfast. Whether it’s a brunch style quiche with all the fixings, or something as simple as yogurt – […]

Low Carb Waffle Sandwich

This is a recipe for a cheese waffle, not a traditional waffle. If you have searched the internet for keto-friendly breakfast options, you most likely have seen something called a Chaffle. Technically, that’s what this is – a cheese waffle, or chaffle. I don’t like the word and I also […]

Quiche in a pie dish topped with fresh basil and prosciutto

Crustless Italian Quiche

When I shared my sous-vide egg bite recipe, I confessed that I don’t like eggs. However, there are a few egg based breakfast items that I like and this Crustless Italian quiche is one of the them (this being another one). Gooey chunks of mozzarella and sharp shavings of Parmigiano-Reggiano. […]

Egg cups on a marble board with salad greens around

Sous-vide Eggs with Salami and Raclette

Sous-vide may seem intimidating at first – it did for me. I had a very vague understanding of it until my husband’s aunt – who is a reliable source when it comes to cooking appliances – told us about it. She has tested and continues to try all the major […]
