Whole Wheat Pancakes with Cinnamon Apple Compote

It’s my last morning to make myself a good American breakfast before I go out of the country for a bit, so what’s better for the occasion than pancakes and sautéed apples? I used this recipe:

It was a very tasty recipe that was so easy and quick to do too! Definitely a way to celebrate my last American breakfast!

Overnight Chia Steel Cut Oats

I have been craving steel cut oats but have honestly been more on the lazier side when I wake up and haven’t wanted to wait around forever while they cook on the stove! Because of that, I googled overnight steel cut oat recipes and found this one that I loved the looks of:

I am very glad I have been lazy because this sealed the deal! Great find of a recipe and will be making these a lot when I need to start meal prepping for the week days again! I kept the recipe all the same but I added in some semi-sweet ghiradelli morsels as well!

Peach French Toast Casserole Bake

My sister just went out of town for a week and left a peach in the fridge, so I researched ideas to use it for breakfast and found the perfect recipe…

I was really excited after finding this and boy did it do right! Not sure if any other recipes could have beaten this one because it was awesome. I definitely loved it with the rye bread too. I made the recipe in half and then put it in a bread pan and it worked perfectly. Definitely needs to be a future brunch party recipe!

Glazed Donut Bread Pudding

I had my team that I coach over last weekend for brunch, and one of them brought over a lot of cronuts and left all the leftovers at my house, so I saved them until this weekend to make some cronut bread pudding! I looked through a lot of recipes and this was the best I could find that had the most convenient ingredients where I didn’t have to go out and buy something:

It was definitely a great find and a delicious brunch this Sunday morning!

Delicious Fluffy Pancakes

A while ago, someone suggested this pancake recipe to me so I decided to try it last weekend:

It was so good that I had to make them again this weekend and finally got a picture of it! I made them for my sister too, who said they are her new favorite kind of pancakes. I think it goes without saying that we will be making this pancake recipe a lot now! Very delicious and super fluffy pancakes!

Smoked Hard Boiled Eggs

My dad found this recipe online and I’ve been telling him how I want to make smoked hard boiled eggs, so I decided to give it a try this weekend! Sounds like the best way to make eggs on Easter anyway…

Here’s the recipe: https://heygrillhey.com/how-to-make-smoked-eggs/

It didn’t take all that long to make the eggs and I would have liked to have left them on 15-30 minutes longer, but we had to pull the smoker inside because it started sleeting and hailing sadly. But they still had a nice subtle smoke flavor to them!

Ricotta Pancakes

Woke up this Friday morning with a day off work, so in celebration I decided to make some great looking Ricotta Pancakes with a huge tub of leftover ricotta cheese I have in my fridge! Here’s the recipe I used:

I’m convinced that once you have ricotta pancakes, you’ll never want to go back! They were so ridiculously good with a subtle sweetness to them! Definitely a recipe worth saving and making again. I used buttermilk in the recipe as well, which I think was an awesome addition too. For my toppings, I used white chocolate chips and dried cranberries, which was a great combination. Then I crumbled up some graham crackers and threw them on top of the pancake stack as a nice crunch! Delicious!
