How to French Toast Everything

I’ve been wanting to write this post for months. Ever since I made a batch of not-great lemon poppy seed muffins and turned them into absolutely great French toast, as a matter of fact. It was then that I realized “French toast” could be used as a...

Vegan Deep Dish Breakfast Pizza

My husband Tony recently acquired two items – a wok, and a cast iron skillet. Therefore, as he does most of the cooking, everything we have eaten in the last three weeks or so has been cooked either in the wok, or in the cast iron skillet. This has been...

Chia Apple Spread Recipe from I Like Toast

I like toast. I really do. I could eat toast every day. Toast with vegan butter. Toast with avocado and salt. Toast with jam. In an effort to help everyone enjoy toast as much as I do, Stephanie Strowbridge has created  I Like Toast: Every Morning is a Good Morning....

Donut Salad or Droutons or Something Equally as Stupid

First came the cronut. Then the donoli. I just heard about wonuts here in Chicago. Earlier this week on my Facebook page I wondered what the next donut hybrid might be. Dalad, perhaps – donut salad? So how does one make a donut salad? Make a mixed greens donut,...

Cheese Biscuits in Paradise

For the past several weeks my life has been sustained by yogurt (which I eat despite finding it utterly repulsive) and Tony’s homemade soup. Other than those two things, it’s a rare occurrence anymore that something nourishing passes my lips. This is...

Crouching Corn Bread, Hidden Broccoli

I think most parents are convinced, at least for a short while, that their toddlers are going to starve. How on Earth could a growing body possibly survive on little more than juice boxes and goldfish crackers? Tony and I do everything we can to introduce Teno to...

Peanut butter banana bread

I know I’ve mentioned before that Teno is a class-A banana waster. Sometimes he’ll eat an entire bunch in two days and sometimes the whole bunch will rot. Tony likes bananas but he’s been on an apple bender lately and I find the texture of bananas...

Martha Stewart’s Cornbread

**I added a much more fun version of these here!** I admit to turning to cornbread mixes in times of sheer laziness. I add corn kernels to the mix and pretend it’s homemade. Tonight, though, my husband went through the trouble of making us homemade vegetable...

Carrot Herb Dinner Biscuits

Carb fiend. Originally uploaded by Bake & Destroy! Aside from the beautiful illustrations, often times disgusting looking food, and hilarious insights on how to trick your husband into eating salad, old recipe books are great for not taking all the fun out of...

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

More uses for old bananas! That’s right, I’ve limited Teno to one banana a day to save him pooping difficulties I’m sure he’d rather I never speak of on the Internet. So, to get rid of some of the guys who don’t get eaten in time I do a...

Sour Cream Drop Biscuits

 Tony’s mom sent me a baking book Gary, Tony’s dad, had given her a long time ago. Inside he wrote, “To Jo: If you make one, make two. I like this stuff too!” So so so cute. I love it. I almost cry every time I see his handwriting in there. I...
