Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

There is nothing better then a  Homemade Cinnamon Roll baking away in your kitchen!    The aroma alone makes me want to devour the entire pan to myself.    I don’t make Cinnamon Rolls very often but when I do make them they are gone way to fast!!
The great thing about this recipe is it is so easy to make.  So I don’t want anyone to be turned away thinking this recipe sounds to complicated to make.   Making any kind of bread is really quite simple and the end product is totally worth giving it a try.
  To me the hardest part is the waiting for the dough to rise.

Omelette In A Bag

On the days I have to work im up and out of the house by 5 am.  I honestly can’t eat breakfast that early or I would be starving by 8 am.  
I bring the usual yogurt or some oatmeal to make at work or I go up stairs to the cafeteria, but sometimes I don’t want to spend the money in the cafeteria or im sick of eating the same thing over and over again.  I came across this recipe and tested it at home to see if eat really works and cooks my eggs properly.
Well folks it actually works and my eggs were so light and fluffy.  Now I can start taking this to work instead of the usual and have a nice fulfilling breakfast.

meat
veggies

Place all ingredients in the bag and shake and shake some more.  Follow the instructions on the bag and place the right side up.  Place in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes.  Remove from bag and cover in some more cheese and enjoy!
Another way of making this dish is to place all the ingredients in the bag.  Place bag in a pot of boiling water and cook for 10 minutes.

 

Breakfast Crepes

I have been having these crepes since I was little girl. 
These are so fun to eat and absolutely kid friendly.
There many options you can add to these crepes.  You can roll them up or stack them up high.  Fill with fruit, Nutella, powder sugar, Cinnamon sugar or eat like a pancake cover in syrup.
 
 

Breakfast Crepes

4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup oil
7 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt

Combine all ingredients together, will be slighlty lumpy.  In a frying pan lightly grease.  When heated add a little bit of the mixture.  Let cook until the edges start to fold up, then flip over.
Serve with fresh fruit, Nutella, roll in cinnamon sugar, or just plain syrup.

Homemade Scones with Honey Butter

First off the recipe is very far from being healthy…but hey sometimes you have to splurge and eat like crap to remember that you need to eat healthy..right?
Well this is recipe will make you forget about your diet!
These scones are nice and fluffy on the inside with lightly crisped on the outside.
Then the best part is drizzling them in homemade honey butter…yum yum!
Or even better with some Nutella, cinnamon sugar or even jam.
 

Homemade Scones with Honey Butter

1 Tbsp yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1 cup warm water
1 egg
4 cups flour, plus a little extra to lay out

Combine yeast and 1/4 cup of warm water to together and let sit for 5 minutes. Next add the butter, salt, sugar, 1 cup water, egg and mix together with your mixer.  Slowly add in the flour until will incorporated.
When all mixed if your ready to eat soon, lightly flour your table top and roll out your dough. With a pizza cutter, cut the dough into squares.(I kept mine about 1/4-1/2 inch thick and made about 5 inch squares).  I covered mine with Saran Wrap and let rest for about 45 minutes so the dough can rise.  If you make it ahead of time cover the dough and place in the fridge, until ready to use.
I used a deep fryer to cook my scones, just watch until they are lightly brown flipping occasionally.  If you don’t have a deep fryer, use a frying pan with a enough oil to cook scones.
This recipe makes quite a bit, it all depends on how think you make you them.  But if your a small family I would either half the recipe or cut the dough in half and freeze

Honey Butter

1 stick butter, softened
3 Tablespoons Honey
1-2 tsp vanilla

Mix with mixer until well mixed.  This recipe is an estimate of how I make it.  I always taste it and a little more honey if its not sweet enough, its up to your liking.
Stays good in fridge for about a month.

Easy Homemade Blueberry Muffins

With me working every other weekend and when we actually have a weekend home together I like to make breakfast.  I usually make a big breakfast but on this day I wanted something delicious and quick! 
When certain fruits come on sale for a great price I like to buy them and freeze them.  I think they taste better then the frozen kind you buy at the store.  Since I needed to start using up my stash of frozen fruit I settled on making muffins.  
Don’t get me wrong Betty Crocker can make a nice mix but I wanted to make the real deal.  This recipe was fantastic!  Me & the hubby loved them.  I wish I had more berries now so I could make some tomorrow!

1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries-Fresh or Frozen, not thawed

HOMEMADE BRAN MUFFINS

These muffins have been a family favorite recipe…well not when I was younger.  I preferred to have blueberry muffins over a bran muffins.  Well since im no longer 12 I thought I would give these another try.  I was trying to increase my fiber intake and these came to mind.  I absolutely love them now and eat them all the time.  I personally rather have a muffin at breakfast then eat oatmeal, but that’s just my opinion.
 
 
 

Mix 2 1/2 tsp baking soda to 1 cup boiling water and set aside

Beat together with mixer
1/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs or 4 egg white-I always do egg whites

then add:
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tbsp salt
2 cups buttermilk
soda water
2 cups All Bran cereal
1 cup 40% bran flakes

I mixed the cereal in by hand.  Let sit for about 1 hour. Stir every 20 minutes so cereal gets absorbed.  Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes.

I usually bake a dozen and store the batter in my fridge and bake more when im getting low.  They are also great to freeze and have on hand at anytime.
