beans on toast

Beans and Toast

When I was a child, my parents didn’t have a lot of money.  In spite of that, I rarely felt that we had to do without.  There was always food on the table, and my mom was a very good cook. This recipe had originally been planned as part of my 30 days of beans series, but I discovered that pies could be made from […]

The burrito pie is cut for serving

Breakfast Burrito Pie

Before I begin with this recipe, let me tell you that I made it with the wrong sized tortillas.  I was certain that I had some 8-9″ flour tortillas, but I only had the really big ones that are made for burritos.

Mexican Poached eggs

Mexican Style Poached Eggs

The idea for these eggs came from a suggestion by an octogenarian, an Italian grandmother, who told me that she poached eggs in spaghetti sauce and served them on top of the noodles and sauce when money was tight.  I was intrigued by the idea.  While I still haven’t gotten around to trying her idea, I woke up one Saturday morning and realized that I […]

Iced Cinnamon roll waffles

Cinnamon Roll Waffles

This recipe is so easy that I almost didn’t publish it.  It’s not really a recipe as much as alternate cooking instructions.   A new friend told me about it, and I honestly didn’t believe it would work, but I needed something for Sunday brunch.    The idea of serving cinnamon roll waffles was just too tempting.  I decided to give it a try. All that […]

Scrambled Eggs and Peas

Scrambled Eggs With Peas

I known this may sound like a strange combination to some of you, but its actually pretty tasty.  The first time I saw this, my aunt was serving it to us for breakfast one morning.  I liked to eat raw peas from the garden, so I didn’t hesitate to try this breakfast dish, and I liked it.  Recently, I woke up thinking about peas and […]

Berry Nutty Oatmeal

Breakfast From The Pantry

A well stocked pantry anticipates needs for more than just dinner.  Unfortunately, I realized that all of my recent recipes have been focused on lunch and dinner.  I realize that the food police won’t show up to arrest me if I serve a bowl of chili for breakfast.  In fact, I love to have leftover soup for breakfast with toast when the weather is cold […]
