Blueberry Muffins {Foodie Friday}

It seems crazy that I have never made Blueberry Muffins before..from scratch that is. I can make some awesome muffins from a box, but this recipe is so easy that you would probably save time making them by not going to the store to buy the mix.

Banana Chocolate Chip Bundt {Foodie Friday}

The night I made this I was not on my A-game. It was Thursday night and I had had very little sleep since Monday. With a coughing hubby and a wakeful toddler it’s safe to say that I barely knew which way was up. I failed to set out the butter and eggs to get them to room temperature. I forgot to preheat the oven and grease and flour the pan. What a mess.

Ham and Swiss Quiche {Foodie Friday}

I have never had Quiche before. I know, I know. I had no idea what I was missing. I think most of the quiche recipes that I saw had weird and crazy things in them that I would never eat anyway. But this quiche was awesome. If they didn’t take so long to cook I would make them all the time for breakfast. We actually had this for dinner.

Snickerdoodle Pie

It's Pi Day! Today I celebrated by making a Snickerdoodle Pie. It tastes great for breakfast, because with all the cinnamon it's like coffee cake. My favorite part is the strip of cinnamon sugar on the pie crust. Plus, what is not to love about a pie that tastes like a cookie!

Darn Good Chocolate Cake {Foodie Friday}

When I first had this cake it was because a co-worker made it for a work party. She had slightly undercooked it so it had a gooey center that almost seemed like a filling and it was perfect. Unfortunately I cooked mine all the way so it did not have a gooey center, but it was still delicious. This is the first time I have used my bundt pan (Christmas gift!!) I insisted on the original bundt pan, because Cooking Illustrated says it is the best. The directions for this cake say to grease and flour the pan, but I feel like I would have had good results even if I had skipped that step.

Easy Vanilla Buttercream {Foodie Friday}

Of all the treats I made for Caroline's birthday party, the cupcakes and the brownie bites were the biggest hits. I just used boxed cake mix from the dollar store (cause I'm cheap), but the icing was from scratch. DH has actually had the distinct honor of making the icing and decorating the cupcakes. Last year they were all the hype too. It's so easy to make your own icing and it tastes so much better than store bought.
