My Favorite French Toast (Oui!)

I’m kinda anti-alarm on the weekend. But it’s gotten to the point that I’m really good at sleeping in. So my bf was going to come by at 10:30 for French toast… But I woke up at 10:37! Luckily he’s good at sleeping in also. So I baked this up while I showered and stuff. Served with a lil side of huntsman cheese because it’s my favorite and it’s striped and after that cheese-break I…

Vegan Sprankle Blondies

I bet these blondies will make up for the time you used up the rest of your neighbor’s laundry soap,¬†and when you wrote “donuts” instead of “donate” on the bring-your-own-bag raffle slip at Trader Joe’s, or when you picked napping over cleaning and drinking beers instead of water or when you didn’t do the dishes for 4 days. And by you, I mean me, and by blondies I mean one big cookie. So whip these…

Mocha Ice Pops

I tried to do laundry on Tuesday, but I ate sliders and listened to records instead. I tried to help Elliot not hear fireworks by blaring music, but he couldn’t ignore them no matter how loudly I blared Otis Redding’s romance tunes. I tried out a new dance move in front of the mirror, but it looked way cooler in my head, and now I think I should probably keep dancing to myself, in my…

Single Lady French Toast

There was a dark time in my life where I didn’t like French toast. I’d had too many soggy, weird, egg-y situations. Even out on the town, it was disapointment-ville. BUT then I learned the secret. A combo of using stale (homemade) bread that will keep it’s cool when under pressure or submerged in liquid AND, secondly, infusing the milk. Why dunk your bread in plain old milk, when you can infuse it with a…

Buttermilk Pancake Ice Cream

You’re the tops! You are the pumpkin marshmallows in my hot cocoa. You’re the gruyere on my Cuban sandwich. You’re the beer with my burger, the prosciutto on my pizza, the jam on my toast. The moral of the story is that you’re the pancakes on my ice cream sundae, ya know? P.S. That lovely cup is from Scout, one of my favorite shops! I kinda want to collect all the purple-y pink iridescent goodness.…

Maple Shortbread Fries

I like a day ending with a churro, and so it’s just a fact that I like a dessert that can be dunked. These aren’t churros, but are salty and maple-y shortbread cut into fries that can be dunked at your leisure. They’re super tasty dunked in Nutella (but what isn’t?) but would also be tasty dipped into jam or blueberry coulis. But beware, you might want to eat quite a few of these. In…

Berry Breakfast Pops

It’s time to freeze up some breakfast smoothie business. Take a bite and then run an un-bitten one downstairs to your new neighbor. You see, even a gentleman can appreciate the ladylike looks of this pop. They’re a healthy snack! A breakfast! A friend-maker! Offer some to his dapper cat. Offer some to your bow-tie wearing dog. Live your life. It’s still summer. So we should really embrace it! Popsicles for breakfast and sandals and…

Banana Bread Pancakes

You guys, it’s been summer in Michigan like whoa. And honestly the thought of turning on the oven for ONE WHOLE HOUR to eat banana bread is just too much to bear. (Or at least until I give up on stayin’ cool). Don’t fret though! These pancakes solve that banana bread debacle in one awesome breakfast eatin’ swoop. And with a little bit of butter on each warm pancake, they just really and truly taste…

Double Raspberry Waffles

These waffles might be my favorite yet. Despite the fact that the first few waffles got majorly stuck in the waffle iron. They obviously have separation anxiety. Even though I ate the first couple (mangled) waffles burrito-style with some raspberry syrup in the middle. I mean, you just can’t go wrong with summertime berry-livin’. These taste especially awesome when you have the day off. They are a nice leisurely brunch-y way to get your day…

Mini Peanut Butter Ricotta Pancakes

I have absolutely no idea where I’ll be in a year. I’m not sure who my main hang will be or even what’s for dinner tonight. What I do know is that uncertainty can be exciting, brunch should happen every weekend, and ricotta should be in every pancake. I was thinking that I’d go out to Easter brunch this year, but then I started thinking about the pancakes and omelet of my dreams, and figured…
