Baked Brown-Sugar, Apple & Cranberry Oatmeal

This is so perfect.It's almost like eating a giant oatmeal cookie for breakfast -- almost. You guys are going to love this recipe. It's amazing, and sooo simple -- it comes together very quickly. Oatmeal is a great foundation to add damn near anything you want, so you will find that this recipe is very adaptable. You can do whatever you want to it, and I promise it'll be delicious. Add any combination of fruit you'd like, any nut you'd like (or not), use any kind of sweetener. The options are limitless, and the choice is yours.

Leek, Sausage & Chanterelle Puff Pastry Frittatas

Absolute adorableness.I really like cute food. I eat with my eyes first, so if it's cute, I'll provide it with a barrage of awww's while devouring it. This is one of those recipes you could totally make your own -- that's the whole idea, right? Due to the fact it's been a deliciously fatty holiday (as it should be), I had some frozen puff pastry leftover and decided to throw some delicious eggy goodness in there and bake it pretty. If you don't like mushrooms, you're a weirdo -- kidding! You can totally leave them out. You could swap out the expensive chanterelle's for a more affordable button, shiitake, or portobello variety. You could use bacon instead of sausage, ANY kind of cheese you want -- the possibilities are endless.

Bacon, Gruyere, and Shallot Quiche

Served it alongside a fresh green salad and lots of fruit -- it was a pretty epic meal. If you're a lover of quiche, you gotta give this recipe a try.

Lemon Sugar Crusted Blueberry Muffins

blueberrymuffins24I don't like blueberry muffins at all. Yes, you heard me right -- I do not like blueberry muffins. In fact, I damn near despise them. They taste so...artificial and I find them to be rather headache inducing. However, these mothersmuckers right here?? Oh my God...I love these. I still won't eat any one else's blueberry muffin, but these are from the heavens above. If you like lemony blueberry muffins, you have to make these -- I swear you will be pleased.

Blueberry & Lemon Buttermilk Pancakes

blueberrypancakes2It's finally snowing after weeks and weeks of insanely warm "winter" weather here in VA. Well, it's not really "snowing" but there's a light dusting of hazardous ice particles falling from the sky and barely sticking. It's basically doing more than it has been all winter long...so far. Point is, it's cold as hell outside but it's kinda romantic -- the perfect kind of day to stay in, snuggle up and eat a stack of delicious blueberry pancakes.
