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.

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!

These pancakes mix up in the blender and then are baked in a sheet pan – which makes them super quick, and super easy – and, as a bonus, the whole family can sit down to warm pancakes at the same time!

Pineapple Muffins

There are plenty of things that I’ve made only once. Challenging desserts I just wanted to prove to myself I could bake and dishes I cooked up for a special person or event.

And then there are recipes I revisit again and again… and again. These muffins are one of those.

This recipe originally came from my middle school home ec class – the only formal cooking training I’ve ever had, incidentally. Over the years, I’ve tweaked it fit what we normally have in our pantry and make the measurements a bit easy – but the taste stays the same.

For me, these are nostalgic comfort food.

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.
