Eggnog French Toast

Today, I’m posting a breakfast food that I make for my kids alllll the time, but “Christmas-ified” You know that scene in Love Actually where Billy Mack says “Yes… but we changed the word ‘love’ to ‘Christmas…”  Basically, I just change my french toast recipe to include eggnog instead of milk.  I’m very clever.

Fudgiest Ever Pumpkin Bread {with brown butter icing}

Oh joy, it is September.  The “ember” months.  My most favorite four months of the whole entire year.  For me, it’s not just the pumpkin spiced everything, although I certainly enjoy that part.  It’s the coziness of fall.  The boots and the sweaters, the cool weather, the pumpkins, the anticipation of the holiday season, and… Continue reading Fudgiest Ever Pumpkin Bread {with brown butter icing}

Mom’s Overnight Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole (Strata)

The reason I’m so obsessed with the Christmas season is my mother.  She gets full blame for it, really.  My whole life, Christmas has been a jolly, wonderful, month long celebration with food, decorating, cookies, trees, lights, eggnog, and family time. I remember waking up every year in the wee hours of Christmas morning, way before the… Continue reading Mom’s Overnight Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole (Strata)

Pumpkin Caramel Monkey Bread

I very rarely make Monkey Bread around here because it is VERY dangerous. Case in point: I just had to try this pumpkin caramel monkey bread yesterday and I legit gained an entire pan in one day, even though I skipped lunch. Traditional lunch, I should say.  I definitely ate my weight in monkey bread… Continue reading Pumpkin Caramel Monkey Bread
