Bread Whore ~ The Modern English Muffin

The other week, out of the blue, Jane says, “I’ve been trying to think what this thing is called…” “What thing..” “Breakfasty, brunchy kind of thing” “What’s in it” Poached eggs and an English muffin…” “Oh, it’s an Eggs Benedict.” She thanked me – obviously it had been nagging at her head for days. A […]

Breakfast Quick Breads

Cinnamon Bun French Toast

You can all blame my sister for this…. Not that it doesn’t sound like “Fat Boy Breakfast” on steroids…. because it is. But, because I never… ever… would have considered doing it if she hadn’t told Jane about what she had for Brunch yesterday. … and, Jane wanted them… …and, I can’t buy the Whack-On-The-Counter rolls […]

Egg Smash, and the Tater Tot Frittata

  Usually, I’m pretty conscientious when I go shopping… I bring my own bags, I load my cart with fragile things tucked under or in the little flippy basket, I arrange things on the conveyor checkout thingy so bruisy – easily damaged things don’t end up under the laundry detergent, and I don’t let them […]

Breakfast Brunch Buttermilk Dairy Eggs

Buttermilk French Toast

We’ve been talking buttermilk the past couple of days, and I realize not everyone knows what I mean when I refer to “good” buttermilk. So, let’s look at the dairy counter for a bit. Undoubtedly, you’re going to see a minimum of three different kinds of buttermilk when you look at the labels – Cultured […]

Baked Oats – Revisited

I’ve been eating baked oatmeal nearly everyday since that first post a couple of weeks ago. I’ve done it with pearled oats, steel cut oats, old fashioned and quick cook.  I’ve changed the ingredient mix-ins, I’ve monkeyed around with proportions and liquids and cooking times… And, I’ve come to the realization of a couple of truths: I […]

Tales of Woe – The one with the oatmeal

I should eat healthier. I know I should… I’m 50+ (ish),and I’m fully aware of just how much I abused the temple in my younger years. Debauchery, indiscretions, and work related stress aside, my idea of healthy eating was ordering part-skim mozzeralla on my pizza and toasting shredded wheat biscuits with bacon and cheddar. It’s not that I didn’t eat well, or […]

Breakfast Breakfast for Dinner Brunch Easy Fennel

Warning, Turkey-Free Zone

I’m not what you call a turkey fan. I mean, I’ve cooked ’em… and, I eat ’em… But I really don’t want that half butchered carcass hanging around in the fridge for a week while I work up the nerve to re-purpose it into something less recognizable as turkey. It has just never made sense […]

OLÉ! – kinda…

Ideally, there should be a bit of a travel story depicting my drunken body staggering into some dirty backwater, iguana-crawling, cha-cha playing, peeling concrete floored cantina somewhere down in the backwoods of the Yucatan Peninsula where I first had Chilaquiles. But that would be a fib. The drunkenness, staggering and crawling are probably correct – but I […]
