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.

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!

This is a slightly modified version of a popular Middle Eastern breakfast dish. I love this recipe because it is easy, healthy, and satisfying. You can also make this with fresh tomato and jalapeno, but I like to use the canned version so I can make it whenever I want with ingredients from my pantry.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

This is the way to get crisp bacon without having to constantly turn it, watch over it, or get burnt by splatters of grease. It 'fries' up flat and doesn't curl, which looks great beside a breakfast plate of eggs, and makes BLT sandwiches much easier. Very nice when feeding a family or crowd.

This is a fast vegan smoothie with a deep pink color and a rich, creamy texture. VERY filling, and perfect for people in a rush in the morning. You don't have to give up a good breakfast when it's this fast to make! I use vitamin fortified soy milk.

My mom made these for us after school in the fall with the apples we'd pick and buy from a fruit farm. Warm, crisp, and sweet, a perfect fall treat.

Steve, my farmer friend, has kept me well supplied with zucchini. I was looking to make an original muffin recipe to thank him that would knock his socks off.

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.
