Pancakes

Happy new year! I decided, once again, to host a brunch at my place on New Year’s Day. I wanted to shake things up from last year, and while I was preparing food for 12 people, I still wanted to make it as easy on myself as possible. And I thought pancakes would be a […]

Matzah Brei

Another Passover classic is matzah brei, which is a breakfast dish along the lines of french toast. My mom always made this for us growing up, and it’s quite tasty, as well as easy to make. You can serve it either sweet or savory, and for this breakfast I opted to top it with some […]

Pumpkin Muffins

These muffins were super easy to whip together one morning for breakfast during the Giants game. I brought all the ingredients, pre mixed, over to my friend’s place, and within half an hour we had some yummy, fresh-baked muffins. I saw this recipe on Muffintop and thought it sounded fabulous. I tweaked it slightly, as I […]
