Bright and Sunny Spring Lemon Cake

I see the color begin to pop up from tulips, daffodils, and hyacinth and I can feel the earth waking up from its winter slumber. The warm sun beaming on my face is something I’m looking forward to. That’s one of the reasons living in Utah is great: I enjoy experiencing all of the seasons, no matter how short or long they may be. I have to have winter in order to fully appreciate spring when it comes.

Breakfast-Time Recipes for Dinnertime: Break the Rules!

Most days, I live a pretty by-the-book life. I’m early to meetings, I’m honest about the cashier’s miscounted change and I’m courteous when it comes to sharing the aisle at the grocery store (*hint, hint* to the middle-lane drivers). But even I have to admit: Sometimes, I get the urge to rebel. It’s a yearning to do something crazy like take a spontaneous trip or buy a lifetime supply of chewing gum. But because my budget, kids and living space won’t allow for such things, I settle for smaller acts of defiance—like making breakfast-time and brunch recipes at dinnertime. These are some of my top picks.

Crowd-Pleasing Brunch Made Easy

Love ’em or hate ’em, they’re inescapable this time of year. No, I’m not talking about shopping-mall Santas. I mean holiday guests. Extra bedrooms are quickly filling up with parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends gathering for celebrations large and small. Personally, I love a full house—though with my husband, kids and new baby, mine’s feeling pretty full all the time these days! With these large gatherings come large meals, and it turns out people need to eat more than just the one big holiday meal. Last year, we learned the hard way that a few boxes of cold cereal only go so far.

Non-Basic Savory-Sweet Brunch

I love how long holiday weekends conveniently add a moment of leisure to an otherwise packed calendar. This is the time of year that has me spread thinnest, so I embrace a break from the routine. Our family relishes cozying up together and losing track of time with games, movies and delicious meals. Brunch, a meal synonymous with relaxation, is always on the menu. Continue reading

A Fall Brunch Casserole You Have to Taste to Believe

Now that we find ourselves heading into the cooler season of fall, thoughts of berries, stone fruit and watermelon are in the past. The produce aisles are filling up with rows of apples—so many different varieties. During this time of year, I love taking a trip to one of the many apple orchards we have here in Washington state and seeing which new varieties each orchard has to offer. The smell of apples frying or baking in cinnamon and brown sugar is one that stirs up so many emotions and childhood memories: The first time I made an apple pie with my mother. The first time my husband, Brent, and I perfected the cinnamon roll. I wish I could bottle up that aroma and wear it as perfume. On dreary days, I’ll fry up some apples, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon and eat them warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It is the pinnacle of comfort food. Continue reading

Brunch…with Bubbles

Time to hit the bottle! No, not THAT bottle—the bottle of seltzer. Everywhere I look, I’m seeing new varieties of sparkling water on the shelves. They beckon me with tantalizing (and increasingly exotic) flavors like “golden peach,” “mountain raspberry,” “key lime” and “pomegranate sangria.” How could I not want to taste those? But how could I find a reason to buy all the flavors I’ve had my eye on? Brunch. Brunch is always the answer. This weekend I’m having some friends over to sample my small collection of upgraded bubbly water and enjoy my favorite better-than-a-restaurant recipes. If you find yourself in the same boat (as if you need a reason to make brunch), here are the dishes at the top of my list …dishes best accompanied by bubbly water.

John Donohue – Stay at Stove Dad

 

Springtime has arrived and nature is up to its old tricks. The days are getting longer. Asparagus is in season. The daffodils arrive, then the tulips. It’s great fun to throw off one’s jacket and run through the sunshine. Everything old seems new. Continue reading
