Spicy Potatoes & Omelette


I impressed myself this morning by waking up early enough to make breakfast in less than 30 minutes, take a picture of it, write a blog post, and post it on Facebook - all before 9:00am! But seriously, this is one of the easiest savory breakfasts to make. I try my best to keep breakfast under 30 minutes, if I can. Let's be honest—who has more time than that to dedicate to the cooking of breakfast during the week? Another 30-minute breakfast I made recently were these Apple Pancakes. Delicious!

Here's how you can make these tasty potatoes and omelette in a flash!

Cream Cheese Stuffed Coconut French Toast


If you think you have died and gone to heaven, you might be right when you bite into this sinfully delicious breakfast! The melange of toasted coconut and cream cheese, sandwiched between two soft, fluffy slices of bread—mmm, it just can't get any better! I came across this recipe at Will Cook For Smiles, and adapted it to what I had on hand.

I know you won't believe me when I tell you that this only took me around 30 minutes to make. But try it for yourself. You will want to make this all the time! It is an addiction!

Apple Pancakes



Making breakfast during the week can a rushed affair, stifling any creativity one may have. But, on the weekends, I love making Aaron some fun breakfasts, and he loves eating them, as evidenced by the half-bitten pancake in the picture. He took a large bit out of this as I stepped away for a second to grab my camera. This is a simple, easy, and delicious breakfast. In fact, Aaron said that it was one of the best breakfasts I have ever made him :) Read on to get the recipe!

Absolutely Perfect Banana Bread


Well, I think it is perfect, anyway. This is a simple and easy recipe to make. The fact that Aaron gobbled down not one, not two, but THREE small loaves of this bread in one day, should tell you that it is yummy! Without further ado, and giving Martha Stewart all the credit for this recipe, here it is.

Pressure-Cooked Pot Roast


After a two-month hiatus from my beloved blog, I thought it best to return with a substantial meal. What is more substantial than meat and potatoes? The thing that makes this particular meat and potatoes special is that it did not take me 3 hours to make it! This pot roast was made in under an hour using a secret kitchen tool that all home cooks should possess in their arsenal. (The title of the blog post probably gives it away, but be a sport and click the Read More link anyway, if you want the recipe).
