Chocolate berry overnight oats

Remember how I’m not eating sweets till April? It’s the worst. Also, I may have slipped just a teeeeeny, tiiiiiiny bit. OK, a lot. Like three slices of chocolate cake a lot. Also I should mention that I was the one who made the cake thereby directly putting myself in its path. In my defense, I…

Boozy baked french toast

Is there anything not to love about that phrase? Today is a Wednesday and we need something to get us through the rest of the week. That something is the promise of boozy baked french toast Saturday morning. Or Thursday morning if that’s your style! I knew today was going to be a weird one when I…

Blueberry scones

I’ve always been big into baked goods as hostess gifts, especially if you’re staying somewhere for the weekend. I get it from my mother who taught me to never show up somewhere empty-handed, and who is a fabulous baker. One summer when I traveled a lot I was a muffin fanatic – you name the muffin,…

Chocolate chip zucchini bread

I know this may come as a shock, but I actually do know how to bake with things with ingredients like flour and milk and butter. I feel the need to clarify this because up until now I’m pretty sure almost every baked good on this site fell into the category of “without” foods – gluten-free, dairy-free and, some…

PB+J overnight oats

I have a tough time picking a favorite meal. Lunch is a dud and clearly out of the running. (But any lunch advocates out there: please discuss.) However, deciding between breakfast and dinner is tough. I mean, dinner just has so many options. You can have sashimi or tagliatelle bolognese or crab cakes or ratatouille. You can even have…

Strawberry pecan muffins

So right now you’re probably going, “Another recipe for baked goods? Does this lady ever eat real food? Does she still fit into her jeans?” In answer to your last question: HOW DARE YOU, and no. Yes, I’m on a bit of a kick right now but as a consolation prize I doooo have something…

GF DF BB (*gluten free, dairy free banana bread)

In the States, we don’t get a lot of GF DF. (That’s gluten free, dairy free for you non-digestively challenged folk). We get GF all the time. We get vegan too. But here’s the thing: I’m not vegan. I enjoy eggs immensely, especially in my baked goods where they’re more or less essential for holding…

Spring hash, or “breakfast for dinner”

I remember how growing up, breakfast for dinner was a luxury. My mom would make what she called a cowboy hat, which I think most people just call an egg in a hole. But she’s from Texas. Anyway, she would take the bottom of a wine glass and use to cut a circular hole in a…

Peanut butter overnight oats

If you’ve read any of my past posts, you’ll know I’ve been on a kick called “Callie discovers breakfast recipes that were popular two or so years ago.” I started with egg muffins. Then I learned about vegan muffins. Today, I’m going to tell you about my recent experiences with overnight oats. Now, I’m not…

“I need to stop eating muffins” muffins

As I’ve mentioned before, I never used to be a sweets person, “used to” being the operative phrase. This has changed recently, for a number of reasons.  One is that at my job we have breakfast provided every morning. It’s a great concept in abstract, except when you consider the options: Monday is bagel day, and while…

Caramelized onion, kale and turkey sausage egg cups

Quick, healthy(ish) breakfasts are hard to come by when you can’t have dairy. Smoothies take time and cleanup, yogurt is out, and eggs require cooking. That’s why most mornings I just throw in the towel and get an almond croissant from Maison Kayser. (Croissants definitely don’t have dairy in the form of pounds of butter…

Dark chocolate and lavender pancakes

I’m not much of a sweets person. If you dangle a piece of cake in front of me, I’ll probably eat it but usually I save my stomach space for savory things. Like on Thanksgiving, I don’t get the people who save room for pie. Why save room for pie when you could stuff yourself…
