I like sweet stuff in the morning when I’m drinking the darkest roast coffee I can find.
Really, I’d do better with dessert in the morning and breakfast food in the evening. I’m not after egg-y dishes when I’m just getting awake. Nor potatoes or pork—which reminds me of something I’ve wondered about for a long time: why do we North Americans tend to have only pork on breakfast menus, and not beef or chicken or fresh fish?
Anyway, I try not to eat desserts at home with our evening meal, and when we go out I’m usually too full to enjoy a great sweet—so why not start the day with that? Add some fruit and yogurt to your breakfast menu and be sure to get your protein with lunch and/or dinner.
I love this autumn-sounding Apple-Pear Crisp. And I want mine for breakfast.
Whichever way you’re put together, this recipe looks mighty satisfying first-thing or last-thing in the day--
Need a little feast for your soul? Here’s quick passage to the best of fall—great leaves, a little chill in the air, a wedding (you don’t need to read all of the details), and a Granola recipe!
Olive Oil Granola | My Best Friend’s Wedding
I can’t resist any granola recipe—or any granola offered on a breakfast buffet. I beeline to that spot first, never tiring of the crunch and always trying to figure out what’s gone into the mix.
Once you’ve made a batch of this recipe, and if you can get yourself stopped from eating it all, follow the idea here and give some away—for any occasion.
(And don’t miss the story about the plates the groom made when he was a kid!)
We were recently asked at The Good Cooking Store to name some typical Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, foods. Or course, with the recent controversy, we thought of Whoopie Pies (though Maine residents might contest that!), as well as Shoofly Pie.
But there’s also Baked Oatmeal. Yes, we just featured Peach Baked Oatmeal a few weeks ago, but it’s such a beloved dish here in Lancaster County that we couldn’t help sharing another recipe with you.
A Good Cooking Store staff member from Ohio didn’t know about this wonderful dish until her college roommate made it for her a few years ago. It turns out that we have this roommate’s mom’s recipe for Baked Oatmeal in our Fix-It and Enjoy-It Healthy Cookbook. And we just pieced all of this together one day recently. One of those sweet little connections that life brings to us now and then!
