Pregnancy Waffles

These waffles are so yummy and have extra eggs and milk in them! I developed the recipe when I was struggling with morning sickness in the first trimester of pregnancy. I found that the easiest thing to digest was carbs, but I worried Saltine crackers don't have the protein and calcium I needed. Well these waffles sat well in my stomach and helped me better balance my diet, even when ill.

Oatmeal Pancakes

I used to eat a bowl of oatmeal just about every morning. That was years ago when I was a busy college student. These days, a bowl of oatmeal is good on occasion, but I now like more variety.

Today I ate these pancakes with strawberry yogurt and fresh pineapple, but they're also good with traditional butter and maple syrup.

Enchilada Dippers

Why is it that you can have the same breakfast for weeks and not get tired of it, but you are always looking for a unique dinner idea that everyone likes?
I love enchilada sauce, but wanted to change it up a bit. I thought, what if instead of a dish with tortillas saturated in the sauce and baked, I instead had crispy tortillas cooked on the stove that you dip into the sauce? I thickened the sauce to make it better for dipping.

Real Strawberry Topping

This simple strawberry topping makes breakfast (or dessert) a happy occasion. I first made this when I bought some strawberries that weren't very sweet. No one in my house was that interested in eating them plain, so I decided to make them into a topping for pancakes. I wanted something that used the whole strawberries without too many other ingredients and I'm really happy with the result. I've made the recipe several times and so I feel confident in sharing it with you.

I happen to adore pancakes. These are my Orange Poppy Seed Pancakes. What's your favorite kind of pancake or pancake topping?
