Confession: I positively love to eat cake for breakfast, and especially coffee cake. Back in college, I became hooked on a certain cake that was only available for breakfast on the weekends, a recipe that included two rich yellow cake layers with a spicy pecan-streusel mixture nestled inside. It was pure heaven! Ever since those (long-ago) days, coffee cakes are one of my favorite sweet treats to make and enjoy, and today, I am sharing one of my all time coffee cake recipes: Cinnamon Roll Bundt Cake. This recipe takes all of the delicious elements of a cinnamon roll and combines them in cake form–including a tangy cream cheese glaze that is unbelievably good. And because it is made easily with the help of a cake mix, the prep for this cake is a snap. Read on to grab the recipe!

With back-to-school time upon us, now is the time to start thinking about healthy, delicious snacks to pack in lunches or to serve kiddos for breakfast or as an after-school snack. For our family, no snack is a greater crowd-pleaser than chewy granola bars. My son Jack and I recently did a bit of experimenting in the kitchen to come up with a granola bar recipe that is not only chewy and delicious, but that also only contains wholesome, easy-to-pronounce and good-for-you ingredients. Today, I’m sharing the recipe that has now become our go-to for granola bars. These are so good, my son calls them super bars, and I think once you give them a try, you’ll see why they’ve earned that nickname!

It’s no secret that one of my favorite meals to enjoy with my family is brunch, and today I’ve rounded up some delicious recipes (both savory and sweet!) perfect for serving on a lazy weekend morning. Regardless of whether the occasion is a holiday like Mother’s Day or simply a celebration of a lovely weekend, these recipes are sure to be a hit with everyone at the table!
I feel like this post should be titled something like, “You made bread out of what?!“ This gorgeous, delicious quick bread recipe is made possible with the magic of a very unlikely ingredient that you might associate more with dinner at a Mexican food restaurant than at your breakfast table: avocado! Because avocados are a superfood powerhouse of good-for-you omega-3 fats, there is absolutely no added oil, butter or shortening required for this recipe. Infused with the vibrant flavors of citrus and cinnamon, the avocado melds into the bread and doesn’t impart a recognizable flavor. You really must try it to believe it!
Freshly baked scones are a delicious way to add a special touch to breakfast and brunch, and especially when they combine the delicious flavors of cherry and orange. These cherry scones feature a super-moist crumb that is studded with dried fruit and drizzled generously with orange-vanilla glaze.

One of my favorite weekend traditions is sitting down to eat a lazy, conversation-filled brunch with my family. It’s a time during each of our weeks when we can recharge and regroup after the hustle and bustle of our usual routine. Sometimes I like to throw a change-up into our typical brunch menu, like I did a couple of weeks ago when I turned a batch of our favorite buttermilk pancakes into delicious breakfast sandwiches inspired by McGriddles from the restaurant famous for its golden arches. Our entire family loved them, and this is a recipe that has been added to our regular breakfast and brunch recipe rotation!
The perfect homemade McGriddle has to start with the perfect pancake, and today I’m sharing my tried-and-true favorite buttermilk pancake recipe. Of course, you can use any pancake you wish to make these sandwiches, using a mix, or even frozen pancakes. The choice is up to you!
