Getting out of bed is much easier when a tasty breakfast is on the table! Forget flat, bland flapjacks. Pile your plate high with these moist, chewy pumpkin pancakes, stuffed with chopped nuts and coconut shreds for a naturally sweet and filling morning meal. They’re dairy free, gluten free and made with a homemade chia seed egg substitute, making them a vegan treat that anyone who rises and shines early can enjoy.
Some days you don’t know what you’re craving. Your fridge is bare, or maybe there’s just nothing tickling your taste buds. These are the days you put together a basic PB&J (though it will never be as good as Mom’s). Since you’re a grown-up now, you could at least get a little creative with the brown bag classic. What you need is a fancier, more refined peanut butter and jelly – something the French may know a thing or two about. Thus, the PB&J French Toast Cup was born. Read more →

Some mornings are so busy, even boiling water will set you back. Rather than grabbing another granola bar for breakfast, enjoy that oatmeal you wish you’d had time to make.

The ingredients are so simple that you can quickly create a family-style buffet with toppings laid out for the picking. Or, you can dress up French toast with vibrant homemade jam to serve your other half on a romantic morning in bed together. C’est de l’amour! Read more →
Can a dessert ever be over the top? What if it’s literally toppling over like a layered wedding cake? Though it sounds overkill, a two-tiered mugcake is actually a modest way to start or end your day. Yes, cake for breakfast. And it won’t tip the scale, because it’s made with mostly whole grain flour, carrots and the juice of an orange. So grab a few mugs, two for the cake and one for your morning (or evening) tea.

The wind is howling outside and the temps are dropping. That’s all the reason I need to stay inside and in some fluffy flannel pajamas. But when it comes to warming my belly, there’s nothing better than a big bowl of hot cereal. Usually, I’d reach for a canister of whole grain rolled oats…but oatmeal is so last year.
