Noshing Local: Home Grown Brunch Newark Delaware

omelet_0400

Breakfast is not my thing. Waking up and eating a pile of sugary sweet buttered pancakes or waffles. No thank you. But after a 20 mile bike ride, I can be talked into all sorts of things. Especially when my stomach is growling and I’m about to eat everything that isn’t bolted down in the kitchen. Plus, as cheep as eggs are, there’s something nice and relaxing about going out for breakfast on a weekend day. Stretches things out and makes the day seem to last a little longer. We picked Home Grown Cafe on Main Street in Newark for […]

Monkey_bread_0266a

This Monday is supposed to kick off a new series on PtS since the soup kitchen has closed. But since it’s Christmas Eve and all I want to do is run around cleaning and stressing over Christmas dinner humming holiday music and baking cookies I’m simply going to wish everyone a fantastic Christmas and wonderful holidays! Here is a painless Christmas brunch idea that can be tossed in the crock pot early while the unwrapping madness occurs and is ready in time for when everyone remembers they are hungry. Here’s a little sneak peek at things to come in the following Mondays. […]

Apple Pie Stuffed French Toast

Do you judge a market by it’s price tags? Do cheaper price tags and bottom dollar prices make a market less clean or not as good as the ones with the flashy price tags and eateries? My favorite market isn’t the most expensive one in town, but because of it’s location the client base is very wide which means I can find almost anything I am looking for on the shelves, and at prices that won’t make me cringe either. It isn’t always spotless, but with the volume of people they get, I can’t complain about the tidiness though I have […]

Classic French Toast and a Mother’s Day Giveaway

Just in case a savory breakfast is not what you had in mind for Mother’s Day, I figured we should sneak this French toast post in as well. And two recipes from the same book in two days? You should all know what that means. A giveaway! Remember when I said I was done with new cookbooks, well an unexpected delivery from the Easter Bunny had me skimming the pages of CakeLove in the Morning with family present to remark on how attractive a smile the author, Warren Brown had. I proceeded to give the book a deeper look through later in […]

Low-Country Frittata

Mother’s Day is this Sunday and what a better way to celebrate than with breakfast in bed? I’m not even a mom and I would be down with someone bringing me a delicious and satisfying breakfast that I didn’t have to cook myself. Sadly, I did cook this fritatta myself… but I was also the only one in my house eating it, and let me just tell you, with all these flavors packed in, it was amazing. Just in case you are considering not enjoying this in bed, this frittata would make an amazing brunch recipe for a large group. […]

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Confession time: I have a problem with books. Like, I have about 4 dozen too many. Books I will never use, books I had to have, books that were simply too cheap to not earn a place in a box in my father’s attic never to be seen again on my  book shelf. So, even though I am seeing other bloggers cook their way through cook books I want, am reading intersting reviews on cook books I really want to try, and am adding all sorts of new books to the ever growing wish list I am not allowing myself one […]

Bite-Size Cinnamon Pecan Twirls

While driving home the other night after a few good miles on the bike, Handsome and I were both blinded what we were both certain was a mermaid standing in someones yard. There were sequins and glitter everywhere, so of course it had to be a merfolk and Aquaman was not too far behind. Then as we turned onto our street more garrish dresses and young women trying to walk through yards without sinking their heals in appeared. That reminded me that while beboping around earlier that day a man on the radio said the average cost of prom was […]
