Cherry Oat Breakfast Bars

I’m always trying to get my beloved to eat breakfast.  I have no idea why this is such a difficult thing for him.  Maybe it’s because he’s had too many beers the night before (note to self:  beer muffins?)…so anyway, … Continue reading

I made these for our friend Alex’s 25th birthday.  Alex is one of those people who seems to have more hours in his day than others.  Somehow, he works a 40+ hour/week job, trains on and races his bike, completes … Continue reading

So trust me: this bread is really yummy. No–like, really really yummy. It’s super-soft, super-moist, and nicely sweet…kind of like cake, but better. It’s a great breakfast too, perhaps toasted with a big mug o’ coffee… This recipe makes one … Continue reading

Puffy Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing

Whew!  Cinnamon rolls require a lot of patience…the Pillsbury Doughboy doesn’t get nearly enough credit for his efforts.  While I wholeheartedly understand why so many people choose to just crack open a can on Sunday morning and toss those pre-made … Continue reading
