Easy Whole Wheat Pancakes

Easy Whole Wheat Pancakes

For years, my go-to pancake recipe has been these Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes, which I love.  So when hubby offered to make pancakes a few weeks back and instead reverted back to a recipe I made ages ago (and had pretty much forgotten about!), I was curious.  I had stopped using that recipe because itRead More

Spinach Egg Bake

Spinach Egg Bake

One of my favorite dishes for potlucks and company are these mini-frittatas which are delicious and absolutely adorable!  But to be perfectly honest, scooping each frittata and then getting them out of the pan is a bit of a pain, so when I’m just looking for a simple egg dish, I’ve been making this modifiedRead More

Maple Cinnamon Waffles (Grain-free!)

Maple Cinnamon Waffles (Grain-free!)

We are a big fan of whole grains in our house.  For the last several years, I have been cooking pretty much exclusively with whole grains, with great results.  And while I firmly believe in their healthfulness, and try to branch out to grains like brown rice, millet, and barley, every once in a whileRead More

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread/Muffins (Whole Wheat)

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread/Muffins (Whole Wheat)

People like to talk about seasonal food, but with modern transportation and grocery stores, it’s sometimes easy to forget that most of us do not live in an area where a wide variety of produce grows year-round.  And yet even though you can pretty much always get things like lettuce, carrots, bananas, and apples, inRead MoreRead More

Granola

Granola

If you’re going to make yogurt at home, doesn’t it follow that you need to make granola to go with it?  Well, maybe not, but there are a lot of good reasons to make your own granola.  You come out way ahead cost wise, but in my opinion the most important one is that youRead More

Homemade Yogurt

Homemade Yogurt

One of the most common foods I see parents feed to babies and young children is yogurt.  And while I agree that the probiotics and other nutrients are great for little ones, I am a bit confused by the popularity of sugar and additive filled varieties specifically marketed to kids.  Have you ever looked atRead More

Delicious Whole Grain Waffles

Delicious Whole Grain Waffles

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past 2 years since I started this blog, it’s that homemade foods are often simpler than they appear.  I grew up on Eggo frozen waffles, with the occasional homemade version from Bisquick (until one day my dad decided the ancient, caked-on waffle maker was just way tooRead More

Mini Spinach and Cheddar Frittatas

Mini Spinach and Cheddar Frittatas

As I mentioned in my post about the naming ceremony we recently hosted for the peanut, I decided to plan a menu that mixed traditional bagels with some homemade sides that helped round out the meal.  I was serving lox (smoked salmon) with the bagels, but for people who may not be a fan, IRead More

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

A few months back, I posted a recipe for Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes that are absolutely delicious – light, fluffy, and sweet.  The only problem is that they achieve this by including half all-purpose flour along with the whole wheat.  I tried remedying this by using all whole wheat pastry flour in the same recipe,Read More

Whole Grain Overload – Pancakes and Granola Muffins

Whole Grain Overload – Pancakes and Granola Muffins

As you know, last weekend I made corn bread muffins which contain buttermilk in them.  The problem with buttermilk is that you can’t buy less than a quart, and I’ve yet to see a recipe that uses more than a cup and a half, which inevitably means leftovers.  Well, tonight I found not one, butRead More
