Recipe Round-up, Breakfast style

 

After five years of living “on my own,” I’ve realized that it is much easier to go into a grocery store with a set idea in mind of what you’d like to eat.

With that said, I’ve started to plan my meals.

Crazy, I know, but in the long run, I think it’ll be easier, especially since grad school starts in just over a week (and my roommate’s classes start next Monday). Planning out the meals will make shopping more efficient, I won’t feel so lost when I go to the grocery store AND I’ll know what’s for dinner when I get home.

Amazing, the power of planning.

But while I’m just planning dinner, that doesn’t mean the importance of breakfast (or lunch) has been lost to me. This week’s round up is dedicated to the scrumptious-ness that is the first meal of the day – breakfast.

Baking pancakes is an entirely new concept to me, but I think after seeing this recipe from the Big Red Kitchen, I have to try it!

From the same genius who brought about the aforementioned pancake squares comes baked cinnamon roll pancakes. O.M.G.

 

Thank you, Pinterest, for introducing me to these pancake bites filled with cooked breakfast sausage! I am SO making these Monday morning.

And now I have to get a waffle iron. These maple sausage waffles are the stuff of my dreams.

Coffee cake is for breakfast time, right? If it’s not, then I will start a campaign to MAKE IT SO (Number One).

– Stay tuned for next week’s updated about lunch! YUM.

Recipe Round-Up

Bakers Anonymous family, I’ve moved.

Well, this website hasn’t. We’re still the same wonderful baking website that we’ve always been, just a little bit better. And busier. But where I was once in New Jersey, I have relocated to Baltimore, Maryland.

There are a few bakeries I’m going to try out while I’m here (all two years), so stay tuned for those eye-opening experiences. Or what ever they’re supposed to be called. In the mean time, feel free to let me know any places I should visit!

Now, let’s see what Pinterest has in store for us.

Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate. It’s all that’s on my brain right now. And if I had all the ingredients, I would so make these brownies from Eats Well With Others..
Alas, I have left my kitchen with everything behind for this land of … Baltimore.

These light cupcakes from Cake aren’t even made with angel food cake mix, but just six ingredients. Simple, amazing and perfectly portioned.

 

These sugar cookies are made from French Vanilla cake mix courtesy of Sweet Treats & More. I think it’s the French that makes them taste more like homemade sugar cookies.

Semi-Domesticated Mama made these easy cream coconut bars made with Bisquick. This isn’t the first time that I’ve seen coconut cream made with this mix, so I think there’s something to it all.

This cookie dough dip from Chocolate Covered Katie is completely healthy but still tastes like the unhealthy version! It’s made with chickpeas and nut butter.

 

So that’s this week’s round up. I may or may not be posting on Wednesday, but I hope to get back to a regular schedule by next week. Thanks for your patience and support. – Niki

Recipe Round-Up

Last week was just one hot mess after the other, and I have a feeling that this week will be much similar. The weather is lovely (ish) here in New Jersey, so I’m enjoying not sweating the SECOND I step foot out of my door.

Also, I spent my Saturday at my best friend’s graduation swimming party. I looked as pasty as ever. Go me. My last name’s Reagan. There isn’t much hope for me being anything but pale.

Anyway, check out these delicious treats I found for you!

Confessions of a Cookbook Queen made these yummy white chocolate Oreo chuck cookies. I bet they taste just like HAPPINESS.

 

Smitten Kitchen brightened up her summer kitchen with this sugar dusted peach pie. I haven’t had a fruit pie in like, ever. Time to change that?

 

Speaking of pies, Bakerella brought out summer berries for her sweet tarts. I’ve yet to make anything berry related this season. I’m getting the feeling I prooooooobably should.

 

Bakers Royale ALSO made berry tarts, though she focused on the cheerful flavor of the raspberries. AND SHE ADDED IN CHOCOLATE.
YES. PLEASE.

These butterscotch, walnut and oat bars from Cookie Madness are similar to a blondie, and provide a break from all of our chocolate treats.
But do we really need a break? FOR THESE WE DO.

And that’s today’s round-up. Bear with me as I make my move to Baltimore on Friday. I have a lot of adjusting ahead of me.

Recipe Round-Up

What is good, Bakers Anonymous?

Yeah. I’m just going to leave that out there and move right onto something else. How about some deliciously simple recipes?

These Neapolitan cupcakes from iheart2stamp combine strawberry cake mix with chewy brownie bottom and vanilla frosting. Feel like mixing it up? Why not top with rainbow chip frosting? Use caramel turtle brownies and yellow cake mix? I love a versatile recipe.

The absolutely NEXT batch of cookies I bake is going to be these Cool Whip cookies with Sprinkles from Happy-Go-Lucky. I already have cake mix, sprinkles and one egg. I just need a container of Cool Whip. Saturday afternoon baking, here I come!

Looking for a bright, sweet (and holiday-like) cookie? Try these cherry chocolate kisses from The Curvy Carrot. I love maraschino cherries, milk chocolate kisses (I’m so going to buy a bag tomorrow) and almond extract. These are definitely going on my t0-bake list!

Sometimes you just want a change from cookies. Why not make this salted caramel pretzel bark from Mama Say What?! Not just her, but many others have declared this “crack bark.” So addicting, so delectable that you can’t stop eating, even if your tummy starts to hurt.

And if you have more available counter space, make this cookies and cream Oreo breakaway from Bakers Royale. A tray of white chocolate or milk chocolate coating and a sleeve or two of Oreos AND you have yumminess.

Saturday Recipe Round-Up, Week I lost track

Can you believe it? Today is our 99th post! And it’s only taken us three years to get here.

And oh, what a long three years it has been.

We’ve moved from kitchen to kitchen, changed photography styles and even updated the layout of the blog. I can hardly believe how far we’ve come since our very first post.

In honor of such an auspicious occasion, let’s check out some of the delicious things I’ve found this week on the wonderful world of Pinterest.

These delicious white chocolate peppermint pretzels from Armstrong Family Fare make me long for the days of winter (and even fall) when candy canes are readily available and minty food is more acceptable. Why should these delicious treats be exiled to one holiday?

When I was in high school, I would eat circus animal cookies for lunch every day. Okay, sometimes I would have Doritos or ice cream instead, but more often than not, I could be found with a bag of these colorful treats in my hand. That’s why these Circus Animal Cookie Truffles are absolutely perfect! I love that the Domestic Rebel used the bright pink color, too.

I love reading my fellow bloggers’ posts, but sometimes you need to go back to the big guys, right? This lemon cream cheese cake is absolutely beautiful and simple to make. Thank you for that one, Pillsbury.

Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures came up with these delicious homemade Mounds bars, and as we all know, Bakers Anonymous loves some coconut.

And finally, what about some no-bake cookies? Peanut butter and cornflakes combine to create deliciousness, courtesy of Sticky Gooey Creamy Chewy, that she names “holycraptheseareamazing.”

 

So while I bask in the glory of my 99th post, I’m going to eat some M&M cookies (still good a few days later) and think about some celebratory thing for my 100th post. Any ideas?
