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.

Saturday Recipe Round-up

Bakers Anonymous, it’s Cinco de Mayo!

And to me, that means absolutely nothing except recovering from the crazy time I had last night (huzzah for besties and “family” reunions!) and looking at wonderful recipes. Let’s see what’s happened this week, shall we?

Breakfast on a Stick – fact or fiction? Rather, I think it to be the most ingenious idea ever. Babble’s Family Kitchen has hit upon a brilliant idea with this sweet and simple breakfast. I love waffles, I love fruit and I love Cool Whip.

How don’t know how she does it, but Alaska Mom has come up with yet another wonderful recipe – Skillet Cream Puff Pie. Not only does this pie look delicious, but it’s also tres, tres simple. Hopefully, I’ll be brave enough to tackle this treat soon!

Blueberries. Cream cheese. Coffee Cake. What could be better than combining all three of these things? Confessions of a Cookbook Queen came up with this delectable breakfast? lunch? dinner? dessert? (who cares?) recipe; I really think it’s the cream cheese that puts it over the edge.

So, Lemon Curd is something I’ve never really thought about doing, but this simple, six-ingredient recipe from Satisfy My Sweet Tooth actually inspires me to go into the great culinary unknown. I can do this! I can do this?

And to wrap it all up, this wouldn’t be Bakers Anonymous without a tad more cream cheese? These cream cheese chocolate chip cookies from Bake or Break could quite possibly become my go-to cookie.
