Chocolate Granola

I like to have dark chocolate every day, but I do believe in moderation. So many sweet chocolate recipes are packed with sugar and fat that I don’t need or want on a daily basis. I have seen chocolate granola recipes that were very sweet and much more dessert-like and I thought, why not take […]

Blueberry Almond Baked Oatmeal

When it comes to oatmeal, we prefer the health benefits and the texture of steel-cut or rolled oats. Sure, quick and instant oats exist, but they cook up to a bowl of mush, in our opinion. Baked oatmeal has been making the rounds online as a convenient do-ahead breakfast. In one fell swoop you can […]

Pecan Raisin Sticky Biscuits

When you walk through a mall and smell cinnamon buns, does it make your knees go weak? We’ve been there. There is something about the aroma and flavors of cinnamon, brown sugar and lots of butter that makes the whole more than a sum of its parts. Put that together with a sticky, chewy, nutty […]

Monkey-Bread-Dan-Leader

Caramel Monkey Bread

Gooey caramel poured into the bottom of the pan creates just enough stickiness to hold together the nut-and-sugar-coated balls of sweet dough. The result is a pull-apart treat that is fun and festive to eat. I was expecting a crowd to gather when I offered Caramel Monkey Bread to my staff. The aroma alone was […]

Panettone Bread Pudding with Grand Marnier Sauce

Is this dessert or a brunch dish? You decide. Panettone is an Italian fruit bread – rich, sweet and eggy with the addition of raisins and candied fruit. Here, the bread is cubed and combined with rich custard and baked in a water bath. This keeps the center moist and creamy while the top develops a bit […]

Homemade Granola

Granola is a funny thing. Oats seem to be a constant, but then the formulas go every which way. Some have fruit, some have nuts, some are high in fat, others low, and sweeteners vary from sugar to honey to none at all. Our idea with this recipe was to make a tasty, satisfying granola […]

Gingerbread Muffins

When you think of gingerbread, does your mind go to dark, spicy cake squares redolent with molasses or do you think of gingerbread men cookies? While we love both of those options, we happen to be partial to the way the flavors in our gingerbread muffins go with our hot morning beverages. These muffins showcase […]

Cinnamon-scone_2

Cinnamon Sugar Scones

These scones remind me of the cinnamon-sugar cookies that my great grandmother would roll out and bake from scraps of pie dough. Freshly baked, the crispy edges of these scones are a nice contrast to the moist interior. The layers in these scones separate beautifully while baking, revealing the deep dark cinnamon sugar flavor inside. […]

Sticky Buns / Amy's

Pecan Sticky Buns

Any day that starts with sticky buns is going to be sweet in more ways than one. Amy’s is justly famous for their version. The buns are baked pull-apart style in a rectangular pan so the buttery caramel and nuts stay primarily on the top. A few minutes after the rolls come out of the […]
