Bacon, Gruyere, and Shallot Quiche

baconcheesequiche14Recently, I whipped up a delicious brunch that included this uh-may-zing quiche filled with smokey bacon, delicious gruyere cheese and a hint of sweetness from the shallots. 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.

Bacon & Brown Sugar Pancakes with Bacon-Maple Syrup

baconbrownsugarpancakes5Happy New Year! I just got back from Houston yesterday, and I didn't realize how much I missed my kitchen for the 2 days I was away. It was about the only thing I missed aside from my dog, I'll admit. I had a blast in Houston kickin' it with my homegirls who are all equally in love with Big K.R.I.T. We partied and rang in the new year with him and it was everything. But I came back, and after catching up on some sleep, I woke up needing to make a stack of buttery pancakes.
