I mentioned in a previous post that I know a lot of great cooks. While Stephanie of Crafting Therapy and I don’t get the chance to get together to swap the real foods we swap recipes on a regular basis. She is great for experimenting and for coming up with recipes that her “boys” love. Today she made a big batch of cranberry-orange scones!
It seemed everywhere I turned this week I saw an article about freezing individual, still just plain raw dough, articles and recipes. I guess I never thought of it before. If I baked cookies, muffins or scones of course I can freeze the leftovers in one-serving size, but this isn’t what they meant. They are actually freezing the raw dough, in single-servings, that they then pull out and pop into the oven and bake when they want them.
So I went hunting to see how viable an idea this is and I was pleasantly surprised!
Tuesday is Valentines Day and while we give gifts to our significant others we love showing our kids we love them too. What better way than starting off their day with a fun and delicious breakfast that comes straight from your heart?
These banana flavored, chocolate chip embellished pancakes are just the ticket! The recipe I found calls for pouring the batter into a cast iron heart mold but how many of us have that in our kitchen?
We had two of our grandkids stay overnight with us last night so mom, fresh off of taking her big master’s test so she can start the move from teacher to principal, could have a much needed night out with friends. I wanted to make the little ones a good and yummy breakfast but preferred to make something that was simple at the same time.
I settled on making Dutch Baby Breakfast Cake along with a fruit cup that any pre-schooler would love. This cake is a variation of a German Dutch baby pancake but I think a lot less work. It’s simple and easy, and by varying the toppings you can certainly please just about anyone. While it puffs up really high on the sides during baking it will quickly settle to a thick eggy pancake when it hits your plate, just begging for toppings.
Homemade is good, actually it is usually delicious, but it’s not always necessary.
I have the grandkids overnight tonight, and they are going to absolutely love these Cinnamon Crescent Rolls for breakfast tomorrow morning along with their Bumpy Cake and eggs! Add some orange juice and Nana is the star of the show! They think I fussed but I really didn’t have to. This recipe is going to have you making sure that you have canned crescent rolls in the house all the time!
