Buttermilk Biscuits & Sausage Gravy

I really like biscuits, and it makes me happy when a restaurant serves them at the beginning of meals. My favorite biscuits are the ones from Loveless Cafe in Nashville, and they give you endless baskets! You can also watch them make them, which is really cool, but at the same time, you probably don’t really…

French Toast

Here’s another fun weekend breakfast idea (see my Brown Butter Oatmeal Pancakes post for another idea)! We hadn’t gone out and done a big brunch lately, so I decided to bring big brunch in to us. I had a moment of self-reflection when making this, thinking how funny it was how much I rely on recipes to…

Strawberry Overnight Oats

Okay, I know I’m very late to the game with this one. But the first couple of times I tried overnight oats, I actually didn’t like them. I guess it was the texture? Recently I decided to try them again though because they make mornings a lot easier and do a pretty good job at…

Banana Oat Cakes

I needed a new breakfast idea since I was getting tired of eating yogurt everyday. I like things that I can take on the go, since I’m often rushing out the door in the mornings. This is a good breakfast-on-the-go and also works well as a snack or a small dessert. It goes great with…

Brown Butter Oatmeal Pancakes

We don’t normally make big breakfasts at home, but I wanted to make something special, but relatively healthy, for my husband because he’s been traveling a lot lately. Well, it probably would have been healthier if we hadn’t eaten so many and we hadn’t smothered it in maple syrup…but it was tasty so I don’t feel so bad…

Chinese Rice Porridge (Congee)

I grew up on this – my mom made it almost every Sunday morning for breakfast. Congee is an Asian porridge that is often served to those who are sick because it’s easy to eat and soothing. My mom has different versions depending on what time of year it is (turkey after Thanksgiving) or how…

Steel Cut Oatmeal Bowl

I never used to like oatmeal, but I eventually realized that its instant oatmeal that I don’t like. I think it’s the texture -it’s too mushy – and the sweetness – most mixed seem to contain a lot of sugar. Steel cut oatmeal, on the other hand, has a better texture for me, but it…

Pumpkin Donuts

To say that I love donuts is a bit of an understatement. I love them so much that I had a donut tower at my wedding (thinking about it now and wishing I had some). While Pinterest-ing, I kept coming across recipes and pictures of baked donuts that kept staring at me (it’s creepy how much the internet…

Migas Breakfast Tacos 

I never knew the awesomeness of breakfast tacos until I visited Austin, TX a couple of months ago, and man I’ve been missing out! My favorite (which I had twice in less than a week) was the Migas breakfast taco from Torchy’s Tacos. I think I’m just going to have to go back and try…

Chive Biscuits

These biscuits have no butter or cream (crazy, right!?), so they are much healthier than your typical southern biscuit. Believe me, I love that buttery biscuit goodness as much as you could possibly imagine (favorite: Loveless Cafe in Nashville), but I also know that my arteries would lose that battle. These were biscuits actually made for…
