It’s a rare person who can resist a piece of freshly made coffee cake, especially when it’s spiced with a cinnamon ripple filling and sprinkled with a streusel topping. Paired with a cup of hot coffee — mmm, heaven! The directions give you the choice of baking in a 9×13 pan or two 9″ round cake pans. I chose • Read More »

Smoothies are a great way to increase your daily fruit and vegetable intake. This recipe is loaded with vitamins and is naturally sweet from the fruit…no juice needed.

Salsa Verde Eggs Benedict

My mom loves Eggs Benedict so next time I see her, I’ll be making her this Mexi-inspired version of it!

I suggest warming the Canadian bacon before adding it • Read More »

I love egg sandwiches! They make a great meal with very little effort, and are a great breakfast on the go.
