Summer Vegetable Frittata

Summer Vegetable Frittata

Wow, that was quite a long blogging break I took. I felt guilty every day for not blogging. (I was on vacation in North Carolina with my family. It was fun. I was too busy boogie-boarding to blog.)   I know a frittata isn’t the most super exciting foodstuff I could trot out after a bit [...]

Bacon Muffins

The Bacon Muffin is brought to you as part of a series on Brooklyn Farmhouse that showcases ye olde recipes from antique cookbooks.

I don’t understand the chemistry behind it, but for some reason these biscuits rose higher and were way [...]

Homemade Muesli

Homemade Muesli

It was originally invented by a Swiss doctor as a therapeutic food for his sick patients – but don’t let that historical tidbit put you off. It’s really delicious, it’s really good for you, and [...]

Pumpkin Oat Muffins

Pumpkin Oat Muffins

I had a can of pure pumpkin purée in the kitchen cabinet from last Thanksgiving, taunting me.
