Biscuit Quiche

Biscuit Quiche
Nearly 5 years ago I wrote a recipe for mini veggie quiches.  That recipe called for 2 tablespoons of butter Crisco. The recipe was due for a makeover, so I subbed in just one tablespoon of salted butter and the result is these biscuit quiches.  The crust tastes like biscuits! This is perfect for meal prep, because you can make them over the weekend.  My...

Strawberry Lemon Muffins

Strawberry Lemon Muffins
These strawberry lemon muffins are the perfect spring breakfast or snack. Each one is 4 WW points and around 180 calories.  Delish! I recently found Beth from The First Year on Instagram.  You can find her blog here. If you’ve been around here for a bit, you know I don’t bake much.  Because it’s a science.  You need to mix the right ingredients together and...

Birthday Cake Donuts

Birthday Cake Donuts
These birthday cake donuts turned out so good! Baking is not my forte, so I looked at a bunch of recipes online to find baked donut recipes. Many of them had yeast and required a slow rise overnight in the fridge, and I wasn’t about that life. Ina Garten had a recipe that was more of a “batter” but when I saw that her 12...

Almond Scones

Almond Scones
These almond scones are probably the best scones I’ve made to date – so good! Ever have the Starbucks Almond Croissant?  Not even sure they still sell them, but back in the day, I would eat one of those as a snack.  Like on the train going to work.  A pre-breakfast if you will. That “pre-breakfast” was 17 points.  Gah.   When Hannah and I were...

Banana Bran Muffins

Banana Bran Muffins
These Banana Bran Muffins were inspired by my grandmother’s bran muffin recipe. Her original recipe called for a whole cup of sugar as well as a cup of oil. I thought because they were bran muffins that meant they were healthy, and would happily eat multiple in one sitting!  On the flip side, there have been plenty of bran muffins I’ve tried that tasted like...

Pumpkin Oat Pancakes

Pumpkin Oat Pancakes
Apologies in advance if you aren’t a pumpkin person, but I love these pumpkin oat pancakes.  This is the only fluffy pancake recipe you’ll need. This recipe was revamped recipe from my site a few years ago, and I am loving these fluffy pancakes. How to make fluffy pancakes? The secret to fluffy pancakes is letting the batter sit at least 15 minutes (I prefer...

Pumpkin Biscotti

Pumpkin Biscotti
This recipe for pumpkin biscotti is hands down the best one I’ve made yet.  And I’ve made a lot of biscotti over the years! There is a fine balance between being crispy enough, without being hard to bite, but also tender enough so it doesn’t crumble.  This recipe achieved both goals! What is biscotti? Biscotti originated in Italy, and mean “twice baked.”  They are crisp...
