In the opinion of my kids: waffles are great, but chocolate waffles are the absolute best! After experimenting with many waffle recipes, I have come to the conclusion that the very best results are achieved by adding the sourdough starter.
Summer Strawberry Topping
Strawberries are one of those foods that just breathe summer. Whether you prefer them fresh, or preserved, its important to retain that refreshing flavor. Strawberries may seem very plain and ordinary but underneath that juicy goodness is a healthy dose of antioxidants and folic acid. This versatile recipe can easily be used for other berries…
European Crepes aka Blinchiki (GF version also)
The whole house gets filled with a warm sweet-bread-like aroma as fresh crepes are cooked, thin round sheets of goodness slathered with butter. Crepes are heavenly just with a healthy brushing of butter but the most simplest way we enjoyed them growing up was folded into triangles and dipped into homemade jam or preserves.
European Whole-Grain Waffles with Gluten-Free Version
The smell of fresh waffles in the morning is just irresistible! Waffles are a special treat for our family and any leftovers get reheated in a toaster and enjoyed just as much.
Cranberry Pecan Scones with Brown Butter Glaze
Cranberries and pecans are a few of my favorite flavors for the fall and wintertime. The flavors of sweet, tart, nutty, and earthy are all packed into fluffy cream based scones which, in my opinion, are perfect for any time of the day, not just breakfast or brunch.
Creamy Pumpkin Rice Pudding (Kasha)
One of my favorite fall flavors from my childhood is pumpkin kasha, as we called it. Back then it was a very basic recipe consisting of a large pumpkin, rice, and milk.
Chocolate Orange Cream Scones
Scones are like a blank canvas that could be transformed into a deliciously beautiful teatime treat by adding various fruits, nuts, extracts, etc.
Parmesan Black Pepper Cream Biscuits
The smell of homemade biscuits baking on a cold morning is sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face! Using cream instead of the traditional butter and buttermilk makes this recipe quicker and easier to pull off on a busy morning giving every morning a perfect start!
Homemade biscuits are just the best! The corn in this gluten-free recipe gives the biscuits a pleasant crunch and sweetness.
Pumpkin Multigrain Pancakes – Oladiki
The first time I made pumpkin pancakes was a few years ago, when fueled by a desire to have our own garden in Southern California, we planted pumpkin seeds that were given to us by a good friend.
