How to Make Perfect Cheese Eggs Every Time

How to Make Perfect Cheese Eggs Every Time

What is there really to say about cheese eggs besides “Yes, please.”? I love cheese eggs, have been practicing making them since college and have found that timing plays the biggest role in this process. When you add salt, how long you whisk, and when […]

Apple Praline Biscuit Bake

Apple Praline Biscuit Bake

Yep, another recipe featuring praline sauce. In my defense, this idea was sparked by someone else. I made a batch of the sauce to drizzle over waffles at brunch a couple of months ago and one of my friends poured it over his biscuits. Game. Changed. […]

Crispy Potato Breakfast Bake

Crispy Potato Breakfast Bake

I don’t really do casseroles so I won’t call this a breakfast casserole. And although they share some of the same ingredients like bacon, red potatoes, green onions, eggs, and cheese, this isn’t quite like my super breakfast pie, either. Whatever it is, it’s tasty. […]

Vanilla Chai Donuts

Vanilla Chai Donuts

I’ll try to keep today’s post short and sweet because these donuts pretty much speak for themselves. Also, it’s been a supremely strange week, y’all. My Sunday was pretty relaxed and I attended a photography workshop with the Houston Blogger Union. I eased into a […]

Easy Brunch Pizza

Easy Brunch Pizza

I think I’ve mentioned before that brunch is the meal of our generation and my personal favorite. Sweet meets savory. Day drinking meets anything. Breakfast food meets pizza. I might have made that last one up but stick with me because it for sure works! This pizza […]

The Best Breakfast Hash [Updated]

The Best Breakfast Hash [Updated]

This recipe is something of a Dash of Jazz classic, if there is such a thing. It’s the first one I ever shared here on the blog (original post here not too much on my rookie photo skills, please!) a little over two years ago…and it’s still […]

Strawberry Cake Donuts

Texan Twist Pastry Braid

Texan Twist Pastry Braid

If appetizers could greet you, this one would say “Hey, y’all!” I was inspired to create something party worthy with the Strawberry Jalapeño Smucker’s Fruit & Honey spread I found in my December Degustabox. (If you aren’t familiar with Degustabox, read my rundown here and click […]

Spiced Banana Nut Bread

Right now, the heat index here is 108 degrees. One-hundred and eight…degrees! On days like this, I dart from my car to the doors of my house or office with an unparalleled quickness. I also pray for those who have nowhere to dart and gain […]

Easy Blackberry Spice Muffins

Easy Blackberry Spice Muffins

Muffins are not just for breakfast anymore, people. I know this because I ate the majority of these easy blackberry spice muffins over the course of Easter weekend at all times of the day (and night). The oddest hour was at about 1:00 AM while […]

Super Breakfast Pie

Super Breakfast Pie

This dish started off as an innocent quiche and I got a little carried away. In my head, I began with the quiche basics but as I strolled through the produce section at HEB, bunches of kale jumped out at me along with red potatoes and mushrooms. […]

Banana Nut Pancakes with Praline Syrup

Banana Nut Pancakes with Praline Syrup

Are you one of those people who likes _____-flavored foods but not _____ itself? I am that way when it comes to bananas. I like banana-flavored runts, jellybeans, banana nut bread, etc., but cannot eat a banana on its own. I happily ate bananas in […]

Best Breakfast Hash

Best Breakfast Hash

2015 has brought very chilly temperatures to my city. I don’t know about you, but cold weather makes getting out of bed in the morning nearly torturous for me. Heading in to the office to do fulfilling work and draw a paycheck doesn’t light the […]
