Strawberry Banana Beet Smoothie

Strawberry & beet make for an incredible combination! Sweet, earthy, and vibrantly colored... this smoothie is too wonderful to be reserved for only breakfast time.  NO ONE can taste the beets once it's paired with bananas & berries (not my 4 picky boys, OR my equally discerning husband). The addition of spinach, flaxseed and oat milk only makes it creamy and even healthier... but it still tastes like dessert to me! 

Double Blueberry & Spiced Orange Muffins

Imagine if holiday cranberry sauce were actually made with blueberries, and then baked into a tender muffin with a crunchy, sugar dome. Sweet, tangy, citrusy, herbal, peppery and aromatic. (And those were just the first few words I thought to describe them!) The spice and fruit combination is complimentary but unexpected and so lovely, in my opinion.  Just perfection, with a cup of hot tea on a cool winter morning!

Eggnog Donut Muffins

Buttery, sugary Eggnog Donut Muffins. It’s what holiday breakfasts are made of! A little dense, like a donut but tender like a muffin. So much nutmeg & eggnog, it perfumes the air as they cool. A perfect addition to your brunch table or buffet!

Morning Glory (“Kitchen Sink”) Muffins

  A muffin that taste like cake, is chock full of healthy ingredients, and keeps me full for hours? Now that’s my kind of breakfast on-the-go! I love that it can be tailored to anyone’s preference, adding or substituting ingredients as you like.  Carrots, apples, raisins, spices, coconut, dates, orange zest… the options are endless! 

Bakery Style Lemon & White Chocolate Muffins

Bakery muffins have such an appeal. The exotic flavor combinations, the giant proportions in pretty papers, the streusel or sugar covered domes... I decided to step up my muffin game and create a bakery worthy muffin for my loved ones right here at home! A sweet and lemony batter studded with white chocolate chunks and crunchy turbinado topping make a perfect excuse to stay in and linger at the breakfast table just a little longer.

Eggnog Ricotta Pancakes

These truly are the most perfect pancakes, in my opinion. They’re fluffy yet creamy, with all those delicious flavors of the holidays: vanilla, nutmeg & eggnog. Plus, they’re a huge hit with everyone at our table, which is always a gamble in a family of six!
