Summer baked peaches

Another amazing baked fruit dessert to try at the end of the season has to be summer baked peaches.  We enjoyed these and can’t wait to try them again.  Baked fruit is one of my favorite desserts any time of year, and summer peaches are perfect to offer to guests after any dinner. To make…

Baked Blueberry rectangular pancake

Are you entertaining a crowd for breakfast and prefer not standing in the kitchen making individual pancakes? Here is a fun recipe that works perfectly and the rectangular pancake is cut into pieces for easily serving guests. I found this idea on Taste of Home online. I recently tried this recipe and found that it…

Warm Pears and oranges

Tender pears and Mandarin oranges prove to be a delightful dessert when warmed in a slow cooker.  As I have shared in previous posts, fruit desserts are some of my favorites. Of course, they can also be served with a slice of pound cake, a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt, or even…

Breakfast fruit crepes

So this is the best crepe recipe ever which I use with my Cuisinart International Chef Crepe maker.  It works every time and has become a classic in my home.  Each person can choose what they would like to enjoy with their crepes.  Options include: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, bananas, flavored syrups, chopped sliced almonds or…

Baked pears

Throughout the winter months, I enjoy baked fruit.  First of all, I really enjoy a nice breakfast during the coldest of winter weather.  Also, I think warmed fruit is a nice option and great alternative to a cold fruit platter.  I like to serve cold fruit during the warmer months instead. So, here is another…

Holiday apples

A new year 2017 is here and I have so much to share.  I have been cooking, baking and testing many recipes the past couple of months. And, I have found dozens of new treats. In fact, I have a stack of ideas that are just waiting to jump onto the pages of angelfoodgarden. The…

French crepes

Over the years I have experimented with crepes and found that using a crepe pan had the best results for me.  I have used one crepe recipe for years and found it to work perfectly.  I do chill the batter in the refrigerator and allow it to rest some before preparing each crepe. Crepes do…

Banana toast for breakfast

I continue to cook from one of my newest cookbooks, Sheet Pan Suppers by Molly Gilbert.  I tried one of her breakfast recipes during the holidays, and really loved the taste and ease of preparation.  Any type of bread can be used–cinnamon swirl bread, raisin bread, cinnamon bread or other types of sweet breads. The…

sunshine baked eggs

A great way to make eggs has always been to bake them in the oven.  Especially when preparing for a large breakfast, this technique has to be the easiest.  The eggs can be made in advance while other side dishes are finishing up or being plated.  Sunshine baked eggs are similar to eggs in a…

Skinny toast with toppings

Pepperidge Farm has manufactured a loaf of bread for many years which is called “very thin”.  This bread can be used for so many recipes, including tea sandwiches and breakfast offerings.  In recent weeks, I have been seeing ideas for breakfast toast and thought to try the Pepperidge Farm slices for a weekend breakfast idea….

waffles from a can

I must admit that I do take shortcuts in the kitchen on some days.  When I find a product that I really like, I tend to use those “semi-homemade” time-saving steps. I have found that the Stonewall Kitchen mixes are time savers and equally tasty.  I tried the Strawberry and Pancake waffle mix recently with…

scrambled eggs breakfast bar

My family members seem to like every dish prepared differently based on their individual tastes.  It has been a challenge for me over the years to find recipes that everyone seems to like. When my children were younger, I don’t think I catered to them as much as I do today.  But as my children…
