Almond Puff Pastry Loaf

A warm puff pastry is just the trick for breakfast or brunch or in the case of my husband, dessert! This is a textural delight! Buttery, tender, flaky and then with the topping it’s tangy, nutty and rich. You can go sugar free if you eliminate the icing and let the jam be the sweetness on top! So delicious! Give it a try. It’s so worth your time to make. Enjoy!

Orange Glazed Pear Pecan Breakfast Bread

Orange-Glazed Pear-Pecan Breakfast Bread
I’ve been so busy I didn’t notice that I had pears that needed to be used, and soon! The first thing that came to mind was bread… mmmmm….fresh, warm, moist, glazed bread! Perfect with a poached egg, a cup of orange juice and hot coffee. This is so easy to create and you can do it in your food processor.

Crème De Menthe Double Dutch Chocolate Cake with Mint Filling

If you love Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies, Fannie Mae French Chocolate Mint candies or Andes Chocolate Mint Candies then you will absolutely adore this cake! It's so rich and delicious and it melts in your mouth. When I posted this recipe my family came running because they knew what was in the kitchen and I've got to tell you it did not last long!

Sophisticated Southern Grits

If you're married to a Southern man you've most likely made grits for him. Grits don't really have any flavor and therefore no real taste on their own. In the south, it's typical to see them drowned in butter, salt and pepper. My husband takes that a step further and plops two eggs over easy on top and cuts them into his grits making them even runnier with the egg yolk. That is not something I want to see first thing in the morning.
