Peanut Butter Bacon Pancakes

January 9, 2014 Breakfast
Peanut Butter Bacon Pancakes

It’s hard enough to return to work post-holiday vacation bliss, but do we really need a POLAR VORTEX to make things more difficult? It was -40 here yesterday, which makes it just a little bit harder to deal with life, especially under 526 layers of clothes (tights, long janes, yoga pants, hoodie, puffy coat, scarf, […]

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Champagne Waffles

    Happy 2014! If you’re looking for some type of green smoothie to start your year off right, you’ve obviously come to the wrong place.  Here’s what I tweeted on New Year’s Day: I had two glorious weeks off over the holidays, and I was joking that I wanted the hardest part of my […]

Maple Pecan Granola {Gastropost Mission #79}

November 30, 2013 Breakfast
Maple Pecan Granola

  Our Gastropost Mission this week was NUTS (literally)! And if I’m forced to pick a favourite, I have to go with pecans. They’re my favourite nut, hands down. My preferred application would be pecan pie, but to get an everyday fix, they’re my nut of choice to include in a homemade, crunchy granola. This recipe […]

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Glaze

November 15, 2013 Bread
Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

I’ve been lusting after pumpkin cinnamon rolls for three years. Seriously. You can see my comment from 2010 on Gwendolyn’s blog here. I was still pretty scared of yeast projects then, but I’m kind of proud of how I’ve taught myself to bake up carby goodness since then. I didn’t end up using that recipe, […]

Banana Bourbon Pancakes {Gastropost Mission #52}

May 29, 2013 Breakfast
Banana Bourbon Pancakes {Planet Byn}

  I have complicated feelings towards brunch, and I believe they date back to 1998-2002 in Waterloo, Ontario and a little joint called Mel’s Diner. Mel’s was the ideal place to feed your hangover on Sunday morning and for $2.99 you got a greasy plate of bacon or sausage, toast, eggs and homefries (or Mel’s […]

Mexican Pancakes with Brown Butter Cinnamon Maple Syrup

May 13, 2013 Breakfast
Mexican Pancakes

  What’s that you say? Cinco de Mayo was last week? I know, I know. I just didn’t really have time and/or energy to plan a feast like last year, so instead I just made myself a few little Mexican-inspired snacks throughout the day as I worked on some spring cleaning projects around the house […]

Katy’s Breakfast Sausage and Potato Hash

October 25, 2011 Breakfast

Updated with a new picture June 29, 2015 My friend Kathleen is a pretty amazing person overall, but especially in the kitchen. She works a full-time job and still manages to make wholesome nutritious meals for her family (husband and almost 2 year old daughter) every night. On Sundays she kicks it old school and […]

Maple Bacon Cornmeal Waffles

June 11, 2011 Breakfast

Every once in a while I like to bust out my waffle iron for a lazy Sunday morning treat. I wanted a waffle maker for the longest time, and then my Mom’s best friend gave me one for Christmas! Amazing! It’s been a bit of trial and error to find a good recipe, and this […]

Royal Wedding Cookies + Tea & Tiaras Party

May 2, 2011 Breakfast

When you invite people over at 5am to watch the Royal Wedding, you better provide some good eats to make the visit worthwhile. Yes, I am one of those people who booked April 29th off work way back in November when Prince William & Kate’s wedding date was announced. My Mom, her friend Janet, and […]

Raspberry Jam, Scones & Mufffins

August 9, 2010 Breakfast

It’s a raspberry round-up y’all! I seem to have really missed the window for raspberries this summer – these seasonal fruits give me a little bit of stress, to be honest. When I went to the farmer’s market about a month ago, they were everywhere, but last week, not a raspberry in sight. I really […]
