Cranberry Pecan Pinwheels

These two-bite treats are so versatile for the holidays and so easy to make! The pinwheels start with refrigerated pie dough and add a filling that’s ready in just a few pulses. The result is a flaky crust with a nutty, tangy filling – all topped off with a perfect, sweet icing that hardens nicely for easy storing.

Whether you’re serving these as part of a holiday breakfast or adding them to your cookie tray, they’ll be well received!

Cranberry Scones

Quarantine has brought a lot of new routines for us. Afternoon tea is now a regular thing for me and the kids – and my baking is often scaled-down.

Scones have become one of my favorite thing to bake during quarantine because they yield a relatively small batch and making them seasonal is such a fun challenge.

Our scones-of-the-week are these cranberry ones. They’re perfectly flaky, but not at all dry thanks to the buttermilk in them – and they’re a breeze to throw together thanks to the food processor!

Sweet Potato Pecan Quick Bread

Don’t tell the other seasons, but I’m pretty sure fall is my favorite. So much about it makes me happy – the crisp air, Halloween and Thanksgiving, and, of course, the continued plethora of produce.

Confession, though: I’m not a pumpkin girl. And while pumpkin gets all the love on other blogs, I wanted to make sure my first recipe of autumn focused on one of my fall favorites – sweet potatoes.

Strawberry Rhubarb Mimosas

It’s Friday. School is officially over. And, it’s my birthday! Today is just screaming for a celebratory cocktail.

I will fully admit I’m not a huge cocktail person – but mimosas? Mimosas are my jam.

Two stemless wine glasses are filled with a red, bubbly liquid. Strawberries, rhubarb, and bottles are in the background.

Made with homemade strawberry rhubarb simple syrup, this version is a perfectly seasonal treat. I couldn’t think of a better way to wrap up #BrunchWeek!

Ham & Cheese Breakfast Enchiladas

How do you turn enchiladas into a breakfast food? Wrap your favorite omelette fillings in tortillas, then pour egg over the top and bake. The result are these brunch-perfect enchiladas.

Two tortillas filled with and egg mixture and topped with cheese on a white plate. The plate is on a purple napkin and there is a baking dish with more egg-filled tortillas in the background.

The egg mixture flows into the tortillas making each a perfect little bundle. They’re perfectly portioned and easy to serve for company – but they also reheat like a dream so you can make them for yourself and enjoy all week!

Strawberry Scones

We are knee-deep in strawberry season here and, honestly, it’s one of my favorite food seasons! We’ve already been picking twice, and I’ve put up a batch of jam and a batch of pie filling. We’ve been eating strawberries every day – and I’ve been trying some new strawberry goodies.

Eight strawberry scones drizzled with  icing arranged in a circle on a white plate. The plate is sitting on a pink napkin and a container of strawberries is off to the side.

These strawberry scones are an adaption of my favorite savory scone recipe. They’re not too sweet, and absolutely perfect with a cup of tea. And, they’re my kick off recipe for this year’s #BrunchWeek!

One of my favorite spring activities is strawberry picking! Ever year, we visit an awesome local farm, load ourselves up on gorgeous betters, and then spend the next week putting them up and making a ton of treats.

These strawberry rhubarb sweet rolls are a favorite – and I always put up extra filling so we can have them in the doldrums of winter, too!

PB&J Stuffed Pancakes

Can we talk for a second about how parenthood is a marathon? I swear it’s always something. I really thought we were on the upswing this week: everyone’s been healthy, we’re doing better with school anxiety… and then Jake fell out of bed Tuesday night. Hard enough that it warranted a trip to the ER. For real.

PBJ Pancakes 1

It’s seasons like this that I’m so grateful for prep-ahead recipes – like these kid-approved PB&J Stuffed Pancakes.
