Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Rating: 4.56 stars
This is a great recipe that I found in my Grandma's recipe book. Judging from the weathered look of this recipe card, this was a family favorite.

Fluffy Pancakes

Tall and fluffy. These pancakes are just right. Topped with strawberries and whipped cream, they are impossible to resist.

Great recipe for shrimp and grits.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Really, really good and moist- my kids eat it as quickly as I can make it. Bread will freeze well, and keep in refrigerator for weeks.

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

Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Rating: 4.7 stars
These buns are sooo good hot from the oven when they're gooey and warm.

Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits

Rating: 4.66 stars
This deceptively simple recipe can come out a million different ways with some very minor variations on the ingredients and amounts. This one's my favorite - flaky, but not dry; chewy, but not tough; crisp in just the right spots.

Breakfast Sausage

Makes a delicious, homemade breakfast sausage using ground pork and an assortment of spices.

Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes

Rating: 4.26 stars
These pancakes are passed down from my grandmother, who was fully Scandinavian. They are light and fluffy, and great with berry syrups. I have made these for years as a special treat, and I hope you enjoy them as much as my family has.

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Rating: 4.53 stars
This is a very unique breakfast dish. Good for any holiday breakfast or brunch, it's filled with the fresh taste of blueberries, and covered with a rich blueberry sauce to make it a one of a kind.
