|As the name of my blog implies, I have a hard time following recipes and I would rather wing-it in the kitchen! I still manage to take notes whenever I'm creating something new, and after a few test-runs I often feel confident enough to turn my illegible notes into a coherent recipe. Enjoy!|
|Breakfast and Brunch|
Airhead Apple Cinnamon Muffins With a Nutty Topping
A breakfast muffin with chunks of fresh Golden Delicious apple and a crunchy and sweet nut topping.
|"Apple Trinity" Apple-Cinnamon Muffins|
This is a different version of the Airhead Apple Cinnamon Muffins above. It is made with a delicious appley trio: a tart Granny Smith apple, applesauce, and apple juice.
|Banana Muffins with Almond Paste Bits and Chocolate Chips|
My favorite muffins! The star of this recipe isn't the chocolate or even the banana, but the sweet and delicious almond paste bits.
You can go ahead and be all serious and call them Pumpkin Pancakes, if you want. I'm gonna go ahead and be silly.
Christmas themed pancakes with classic holiday flavors. They also work as boring, round, normal shaped pancakes.
|Spinach-Clementine Christmas Tree Pancakes|
Blended frozen spinach gives these festive pancakes a lovely green color, but I promise they won't taste like Popeye's dinner.
