Banana Pecan Waffles

Lazy Saturday mornings seem fewer and far between these days. School has started up, sports and music lessons, friends and the everpresent earbuds can get in the way but being able to bring everyone around the table is healthy for families. Coming together creates opportunties to listen and catch up, a safe place to try […]

Savoury Herb & Cheese Waffles

During my student boarder hosting days, I found that waffles and pancakes usually created an opportunity for sitting and talking instead of running out the door and phones actually got put aside. So if your family could use a little together time, try bribery. Not all waffles need to be be served sweet. Try these […]

Applesauce Raisin Muffins

It didn’t seem nice to leave the last post about making applesauce without at least one “what can I do with it now” recipe and since school starts again in a few weeks, there might be more lunches to pack very soon. This recipe is for a batch of six. A better number for small […]

Einkorn Pancakes with Blueberries and Blackberry Puree

Tipsy Persimmon Loaves

Persimmons are full of Vitamin A, just over half of the daily reccomended amount actually and just under one quarter of the suggested daily amount of Vitamin C. They are also a good source of fiber and manganese. Don’t let not having persimmons stop you from making this loaf though. You can substitute apple or […]

Walnut Cranberry Scones and Frosted Grapes

You just can not have an afternoon tea without scones, especially a cream tea as the Devonshire cream has to have something to go on. The frosted grapes and candied nuts on this plate are an added bonus, as is the homemade Earl of Raspberry Plum Jam . I mentioned the other day there were […]
