Just when you thought breakfast couldn’t get any better, along comes Pancake Breakfast Tacos! All your favorite breakfast foods are combined in a pancake shell to create these breakfast tacos; piled high with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, etc.  Super yummy and easy to make, so start your morning right with Pancake Breakfast Tacos! The recipe can be found here. Start by making the pancake mixture according to package instructions.  Heat a flat-bottomed skillet or griddle.  Once hot, add the pancake batter and cook the pancakes according to package instructions.  I made 6 large pancakes but make however many batches necessary to feed your family or guests. If you are making multiple batches, I recommend preheating the oven to 200 degrees and placing the cooked pancakes on a baking sheet in the oven to stay warm while the rest of the pancakes are cooking.  You can always place the cooked pancakes … Continue reading

Today is National Waffle Day and what better way to celebrate than with some yummy waffles!  Traditional waffles are best when smothered in syrup or topped with fried chicken or fruit.  I bet really anything would be delicious when paired with a waffle 🙂 but I thought it would be fun to try something different.  I’m making Cinnamon Roll Waffles and Hash Brown Waffles to enjoy while observing this fine holiday! Cinnamon Roll Waffles are exactly what you think – waffles made from cinnamon rolls.  These are SUPER easy to make and take about the same amount of time as a traditional waffle when using a waffle iron.  Still undecided?  You don’t need to make any batter because you are using refrigerated, store-bought cinnamon rolls. Open a can of Pillsbury Grand! Cinnamon Rolls and pull each roll apart.  I like to set them on wax paper, so they don’t stick … Continue reading

It’s the time of year for all the pumpkin flavored lattes, pancakes, cookies, pasta, etc. starts popping up.  If you can eat it, I’m sure someone has tried adding pumpkin flavoring to it!  It’s a craze that I’m more than happy to participate in 🙂 But, another fall favorite I don’t think gets enough credit is apple cider. I thought it would be fun to do a taste test of pumpkin vs apple cider with breakfast foods to see which the fan favorite is.  I made the same two items with both flavors. Apple Cider French Toast Apple Cider Waffles Pumpkin French Toast Pumpkin Waffles   All recipes are made the traditional way, except you either add pumpkin or apple cider, or substitute it for another ingredient.  I chose to make french toast sticks and sliced the bread into 3 pieces, but you can leave the bread whole if you prefer.  I also used a … Continue reading

Christmas is my favorite holiday to host.  I think it’s due to my love of Christmas lights and decorations, so our house is always over the top!  Plus, there are so many festive serveware options available that you can change up your table display as often as you like.  (New Christmas plates…hint hint, Andrew 😊) Sometimes I like to go all out with appetizers and the main course but there isn’t anything wrong with keeping it simple if you prefer.  I truly enjoy cooking for others and putting on a big spread but also want to enjoy the holiday with family and friends.  So, I decided to keep my menu simple this year.  I’ll be serving a few appetizers with some of the drinks from my Christmas Cocktails blog post. The first appetizer I’m going to make is Ricotta and Prosciutto Crackers.  This is a light appetizer because it’s not … Continue reading
