Oh, a bushel and a peck..

It’s autumn, and you’re an overzealous New Englander. Sure, you can buy apples at the store a half mile down the street, but you’ve decided to drive an hour north and pay five times on the dollar for apples you have to pick yourself. Because it’s fun! It’s festive! And now you have a bushel…

Pete’s Scotch Pancakes

The mother of all pancakes. I don’t think I’ve ever had Bisquick in my life (unless a diner snuck it it). I grew up on these – my dad’s pancakes. Many Sunday mornings Nikki and I would wake up to the smell of bacon wafting up the old creaky stairs. We’d get up and head…

Breakfast Burrito

I made this in “Family and Consumer Science” in 8th grade. I thought… um, ew, eggs and bacon wrapped together? ga-ross. (Weren’t we all a little Valley Girl back then?).

Danny Boy Omelette and Loose Latkes

The best dinners growing up were always breakfast. Such memories: Micky Mouse pancakes, sweet French toast, batter drops scalding innocent Nikki’s hands. Where does the time go?
