Barbarella's German Pancakes

Rating: 4.35 stars
This great pancake, similar to a blintz, is simple, easy to make, and delicious.

Perfect Summer Fruit Salad

Rating: 4.6 stars
The perfect fruit salad for a backyard bbq or any occasion. There are never leftovers! This is one of my favorite fruit salad recipes, as I think the sauce really makes it. This salad is tastier the longer you can let it soak in its juices. I prefer 3 to 4 hours in the refrigerator before I serve it. Enjoy.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Rating: 4.54 stars
Good old fashioned restaurant-style hash browns. Perfect with hot pepper sauce and ketchup!

Sarah's Applesauce

Rating: 4.78 stars
This applesauce is delicious! I make it for my younger brother all the time and he loves it - and he hates canned applesauce!

Fluffy French Toast

Rating: 4.64 stars
This French toast recipe is different because it uses flour. I have given it to some friends and they've all liked it better than the French toast they usually make!

Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)

Rating: 4.67 stars
Couldn't sleep one night so I researched several ways to hard boil eggs and developed this process. While you do not taste the vinegar or salt, they both pull the skin from the eggshell so it peels easily without tearing or sticking. Family members call them 'Ken's Eggs'. Enjoy!

Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes

Rating: 3.95 stars
These pancakes taste really good with blueberry jam or warmed maple syrup.

This is a nutritious and delicious breakfast cereal. Use any type of dried fruit you desire! You can also use almonds in place of walnuts if you like. Wonderful when served in bowls with milk and fresh berries or sliced fresh fruit.

I just can't get up in the morning to make my hubby breakfast before he leaves for work, so I put this in the slow cooker the night before, and breakfast is served! A hearty breakfast that's easy to do.

Chocolate French Toast

A very basic French toast recipe with cocoa in the egg mixture. I regularly serve it at our B&B and get rave reviews. It's great served with cherry pie filling and syrup. We prefer using homemade bread.
