Hello! How has your Mother’s day been going? This morning I made a Dexter-themed Mother’s day brunch. Each year for Mother’s day I have a fandom theme. Previously I’ve done Nightmare Before Christmas and even Alice in Wonderland, but this year I chose to do Dexter. For those of you who have no idea what Dexter is, it is a brilliant TV show about a serial killer killing other serial killers. I highly recommend it. Anyhow, each year I make a menu and my mother picks exactly what she feels like off the menu and I make it for her.
This year’s menu:
Happy Mother’s day! Today is the perfect opportunity to attempt to make brunch. Here are some simple recipes to help you out:
Banana Chocolate Pancakes – Use some leftover bananas to create some fast, fluffy, chocolate-y pancakes for this morning.
French Toast – Serve your mother cinnamon french toast to get her day started with a sweet, filling homemade meal. 🙂
Garlic Potatoes– Make some soft, flavorful potatoes with some crispy bacon and some eggs for a full-rounded meal.
Vegetable Scramble – Take some vegetables and eggs and whip up this easy breakfast for your mother.
Please enjoy! Email me if you have any questions or would like any other suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org
For my brunch for my own mother, go here. (Coming soon)
While making regular french toast I may have made chocolate cake french toast…. It was beyond delicious. I’m talking about mouth orgasms. The beautiful crispiness yet softness of the chocolate cake (my recipe found here) paired with the beautiful cinnamon was gorgeous. It was in total, brilliant.
Hello! How have you been?
It’s been crazy here. It’s finals in school and they are working us to death… I cannot believe I found time to post this, let alone cook anything for this post. 🙂
I decided I’d cook something quick, so I made french toast for myself and my family. The brilliant part of french toast is you can take the bread you want to use and some cookie cutters and cut shapes to make french toast out of. This morning I decided to make my siblings heart-shaped french toast.
Have garlic potatoes leftovers? No big deal. Fix it with only three other leftovers:
- A bun/roll
- Some leftover salad (highly recommend kale and leek salad)
- Some barbecue pork
Start by cutting roll in half. Spread some of your lovely potatoes on the bottom of the roll.
Then the meat. (ours was a bit messy…)
And lastly the salad/kale. (We took our salad and heated it with butter in a pan first…)
Tada! 🙂 Delish.
I haven’t been on days! I’m such a terrible person… So I’ll have to make up for that with these fantastic garlic potatoes. What can I say, I am just obsessed with cooking with potatoes. My favorite part of this recipe though is the special ingredient… leeks. This was the first time I had ever cooked with leeks, and it was brilliant.
I have been having far too much fun baking. From baked pancakes to pretty chocolate cake, I have been spending most of my time baking. Today I made chocolate cake. The cake made the entire house smell so chocolate-y… It was fantastic. The only change I’d make to this would be to add chocolate chips for the full-chocolate experience… But that’s just me.
Hello! I has been a tad too long since the last time I posted a breakfast recipe. Knowing that, I created these delicious banana chocolate chip pancakes. These pancakes were perfect. They were very banana-y, but you could still taste the buttermilk pancake while being chocolate heaven. In total, a fluffy, sweet banana breakfast. I hope you like it as much as I did.
How are you today? It’s the first of May, can you believe it? It is also 2 holidays today. A US holiday, National Day of Prayer and a Pagan holiday, Beltane-Samhain. Many of you are likely asking, ‘Are you Pagan?’ I am not a Pagan, I just like to respect all religions. So if you are a Pagan or a Wicca, good for you… Please enjoy today.
Either way, there are not a lot of crafts or recipes I can do for either one, so instead I’ll make a Cinco de Mayo craft for you today, Easter Egg Maracas. If you have some of those plastic eggs leftover, suddenly you have a new project. If not, I’m sure they are on sale just about everywhere.
I honestly was not quite expecting to find a crockpot potato salad recipe… I was just reading a magazine and came across it and decided I had to try it. Of course, I made quite a few necessary changes…. When a recipe calls for half an onion in a recipe like this.. No, that’s not going to cut it.
It took 5 hours to cook it, but it filled our house with the best smell. And the taste… I admit the potatoes were slightly under-cooked, but the flavors were amazing. The mustard, vinegar, celery, bacon…. all of it together with the potatoes just tasted amazing. I highly recommend it, although it doesn’t quite keep as well as I’d hoped.
