Aebleskiver, or ebelskiver, are small spherical pancakes. They’re traditionally Danish, but the pancakes have been enjoying an upswing in popularity lately and are a little more common now than they once were. The pancakes are often filled with fruit or jam, rather than being served with syrup. You might not see the real name associated with recipes for these little treats, though, as some stores ...

Quick and Easy Cinnamon Bun Bread

Quick and Easy Cinnamon Bun Bread, sliced

A hot cinnamon bun dripping with icing and sticky with brown sugary sweetness is one of life’s great indulgences. I like making them at home from time to time, but many prefer to buy them as a treat when they’re out and about. There is something to be said for buying them from a coffee shop or bakery, too. You get instant gratification and portion ... Read More »

I like to stick to the same – or similar -  foods foods for breakfast, too, because it means that I don’t have to think too ... Read More »

White Whole Wheat Sour Cream Pancakes

White Whole Wheat Sour Cream Pancakes, eating in progress

Mushroom, Pepper and Sausage Frittata

Mushroom, Pepper and Sausage Frittata, sliced

When you think of an omelet, you probably think of a crepe-like dish made with fluffy eggs folded over any of a variety of fillings. A frittata is also an omelet, but it is an Italian-style omelet that has the elements of the filling incorporated in with the eggs, not added separately and folded in. I really like the French-style omelets and often make them ... Read More »
