Fun with Egg Wash

Sometimes the obvious escapes me; and other times it shines like a bright star! Last night I made Judie McNuggets, although they are really lightly breaded, hearty strips of boneless, skinless chicken breasts rather than smallish bits and pieces of … Continue reading

Five-grain Cereal with Almonds

The tapioca experiments are ongoing, and you will be hearing a lot more about them, but meanwhile, I wanted to share this bowl of cereal that I am, at this very moment, consuming with great joy. If is our usual … Continue reading

Breakfast al Fresco

We have been having an extraordinarily lovely summer, thus have spent some mealtimes on the deck.  Most notably – the famous “Pre-breakfast Breakfast” feast! Not sure why the pancakes look so dark; weren’t that way in real life.  The cooked … Continue reading

Olive Omelette

On the inside were mushrooms, onions, and extra sharp Cheddar cheese.  It was a good thing that I had my iPhone at the ready, because this baby disappeared right before my very eyes. The one-week report on the cataract surgery … Continue reading

The Twenty-Five Cent Breakfast

Hard to believe, I know, but twenty-five cents may be more than the actual cost.  The eggs were $.99 a dozen (so sixteen cents for two); a couple of leftover Tater Tots, and the last two inches of a loaf … Continue reading

Krakow Nights

For the last year or so, I have been supporting Penzey’s Spices’ agenda and thus have acquired quite a variety of herbs, spices, and other additions to food preparation and enjoyment. An interesting combination is Krakow Nights – Polish Style … Continue reading

Eggs a la Fox Point

There is an RV friend (waving to Diane – ;-> ) who provides a photo on Facebook of her “Daily Egg”.  It is fun to see her various iterations, which usually involve appealing perfect avocado slices.  The world conspired this morning … Continue reading

Winter Fruits of Arizona

The two pears waited patiently for their turn to be in the morning cereal fruit bowl. What an enormous treat to be able to enjoy these wonderful fruits year round.

Les Restes du Jour (The Remains of the Day)

There were no leftover blueberry pancakes for NOLA Boy’s pre-breakfast snack this morning, so I quickly made up some fresh French Toast – Pain Perdu.  I guess the name of the dish and “fresh” are rather at odds with one … Continue reading

Homemade Buttermilk

  Homemade Buttermilk gives a huge flavor boost to pancakes.  These have dried cranberries and sliced almonds and went down real easy.   I was shocked to find that commercial buttermilk is the same price as half and half., i.e. … Continue reading

Pistachio Pancakes

We seem to be on a pancake kick these days.  I make a big batch on Sunday, and then the leftovers are available for weekday pre-breakfast snacks.  This time the “secret ingredient” was pistachios.  They are just lightly salted, so … Continue reading

Pre-Breakfast Bar

This is our Coffee Corner in the kitchen. My morning medication to replace my obliterated thyroid requires that I wait for two hours (!!!) before eating solid food in the morning. If DH gets up before that time is up, … Continue reading

Steam Fried Eggs

Versatility, thy name is “egg”. When I am busy with a lot of other dishes on Sundays’ special brunches, I sometimes just steam fry the eggs. When you think about it, all methods that keep the egg whole produce something … Continue reading

Sampler Plate

I have acquired a holder and a small tripod with a ball head for my iPad, so now I can take pictures of our food without trying to hold the pad steady.  I have been mostly using the iPhone, but … Continue reading

Poached and Pancake

Our usual Sunday Special Brunch was a little different today. This is polenta with cheese and chives, topped with a pepper ratatouille; a poached egg; a breakfast sausage; a half-piece of bacon; and a pancake made from the leftover egg/milk … Continue reading

Open Door Wheat Bread

I make mostly sourdough French batons for our “daily bread”, but once in a while I get a hankerin’ for plain ol’ whole wheat bread to have for morning toast. This loaf came out perfectly, if a bit dense.  I … Continue reading

Breakfast Brown Bread – with seeds

Inspired by all of the delicious-looking brown breads that I see at Schnippelboy, I ventured out.  I started with a recipe for Anadama Bread and added a lot of seeds, probably too many. I look forward to having a slice this morning … Continue reading

Close Enough to Perfect For Me

Nothing special here – just the French toast part of our usual Sunday Pig-out Brunch – but it was so beautiful, that I couldn’t resist making its portrait. Leftovers make a great snack   My current favorite is a dab … Continue reading
