Double Chocolate Mayo Muffins

Double Chocolate Mayo Muffins are the best chocolate muffins, ever!  At least according to my boys they are.  Moist and chocolaty, they almost melt in your mouth!  My oldest calls them Brownie Cupcakes.  A huge thank you to our facebook friend, Jennifer W..  for sharing her mother's Banana Muffins recipe.  (I adapted these Double Chocolate Mayo Muffins from the recipe.)  Her mother added the delicious recipe, and others, to a cookbook for one of her birthdays.  How sweet!  Her mother also left room in the cookbook for her to add her own favorite recipes. I love it!  My blog is my cookbook to my boys.  Sharing their favorites and some memories along the way.

Blueberry Muffins

I found this simple Blueberry Muffin recipe in an old recipe book my precious grandma gave me in 1993. Wow!  When read aloud, that sounds like an eternity ago!  I suddenly feel antiquated....  These muffins are easy to whip up,  slightly sweet, light, and full of blueberries.  Perfect for breakfast on the go, after school snack or weekend brunch.

Sausage Gravy Stuffing Casserole

This breakfast casserole is perfect for brunch or company breakfast.  Easy to make and delicious to eat!  What could possibly be better than sausage gravy in a casserole?!  Hmmmmm, I can't think of anything, can you?   Although I didn't make it ahead of time, I think you could easily make this the night before and pop in the oven for a busy morning breakfast!  If you do, please let me know!

Apple Cider Bubble Bread

I love using frozen bread dough to make appetizers, snacks, desserts and even meals!  Rhodes Brown-N-Serve White Dinner Rolls is the only one I use.  Don't you just love using them?  So convenient to use, the aroma and taste!  LOVE!   I wanted to make something for my boys and put half a bag of rolls. in a pan, in the refrigerator to thaw while I went shopping.  I returned home with a new apple cider caramel drink mix, by Alpine.  Have you tried this?  It is so good!  My thoughts then turned to the dough in the fridge.  I knew what I would make...Apple Cider Bubble Bread!  
(This is not a sponsored post..I just love this drink mix and rolls!)

Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

It’s Fall!  Hopefully, we will see a change in the weather, something other than rain and heat would be welcomed.  How is the weather in your part of the world?  Wishing you comfort and sunshine, wherever you are. 
I seem to think of using pumpkin when Fall is officially here and visual at the market.  Making me want to take them home to decorate, display and eat them.  I did buy a pie pumpkin a couple of days ago but ended up using canned pumpkin for this Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal.  This is the first time I have cooked oatmeal in the crock pot and very pleased I did.  It was like eating a Pumpkin Spice Muffin in a bowl.  Warm and soft and quite filling.  This is definitely a keeper and will be made often.

Biscuit Cakes

Biscuits and syrup.  Do you remember that?  Do you still eat it?  I think I ate it every time my precious Mama made her fabulous homemade biscuits.  It was soooo good.  I would eat just the biscuits, all broken up, covered with syrup.  I know,  but when something is that good ... you just can't help yourself!  Bake yourself some biscuit cakes and eat them instead of pancakes.  You will love them!

Homemade Biscuit Mix

I sometimes use packaged biscuit mix in  my recipes, don't you?  Since I have been sharing them, it has come to my attention that not all of my friends, that follow Recipes For My Boys, have access to items like Bisquick.  I shared my Cheddar Garlic Biscuits this morning on facebook and one of my friends, from the UK, commented she was all excited about making them, until she read ... biscuit mix.  That was all it took to get me in the kitchen to make my own.  I think it turned out great and so did hubby.  At least by all the biscuits he ate, I would say so.  I don't think I'll be buying the packaged biscuit mix again.

Orange Bran Muffins

My oldest twin loves oranges and anything made with them.  I wanted to make him something special since I have been with his twin, at the hospital, for three days.  We missed each other dearly.  This morning, we sat down and ate our Orange Bran Muffins, just the two of us.  ~smile~

Honey Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls

These are easy to fix even for a school day morning.  I made them this morning for my boys and still have plenty of time to do what I always do.  You know,  the things that were supposed to be done last night that were not for some unknown reason.  Kind of like “the dog ate my homework” kind of thing.  Get up and get moving! It's time to make a special breakfast for you little ones and big ones alike.

Egg Asparagus and Grits

We love breakfast for supper and eat it quite often.  The other night we had it again with; Bakin’ Bacon,  grits, Homemade Tall and Fluffy Biscuits, Perfect Scrambled Eggs, Perfect Fried Eggs and Microwave Fluffy Pancakes.   As usual, I wanted something a little different and remembered the asparagus I had in the fridge that desperately needed to be cooked.   I made Roasted Asparagus with it and decided to add that to my plate.  It was wonderful and will have a place on my breakfast menu, whether morning or evening, from now on.  There really isn’t a recipe.  You cook the grits,  roast the asparagus, or cook in a skillet, and cook your egg the way you like it, season and enjoy!  You see how I like mine.  






Perfect Fried Eggs

Once in a great while, I want my eggs cooked this way.  Just the way my precious Mama would make them.  The only way my sweet Daddy would ever eat them.  Don't cook the yolks hard.   If you do, you need to crack open another egg and try again.  The tops of the yolks actually had a light coating of white but the yolk was very runny and they are never flipped over.  Never!  Which is probably why I cannot flip an egg without breaking the yolk now.  Ready to fry perfect eggs?  Let's get crackin'!  (sorry about that!)

Perfect Scrambled Eggs

My boys favorite way to eat eggs is scrambled.  It doesn’t matter how many times I ask, it’s always the same.  These soft scrambled eggs turn out perfect every time.

Bakin’ Bacon

My oldest has a huge FCAT Writing test today so I got up early and made his favorite breakfast; bacon, scrambled eggs and homemade biscuits.  Making bacon in the oven is a great way to cook it.  The oven does all the work for you so you don’t have to stand in front of the stove getting splattered and well, using time that is always in demand.  I was able to get the biscuits ready and lunches packed while the bacon was bakin’ away.  Next time you need to cook a whole package of bacon..heat up the oven and get your baking sheet out.

Baked Cheese Grits and Eggs

Grits are a staple in the South.  I've eaten them all my born days. Always. Not that I remember, but I just bet you, grits were my first food.  Mixed up with an egg, yep,  I just bet ya.  That's the way my precious Daddy ate his for breakfast, it was always the same way.  He would put his 2 sunny side up eggs on top of a plate full of grits, chop them up and mix it all together.  Eaten with thick rind bacon and homemade fluffy biscuits ...YUM!  If you haven't tried it, you need to.  These baked grits are great made with bacon or sausage and cutting down, or eliminating, the cheese.  Alternately, you can bake in individual baking dishes.

Cara Cara Orange Coffee Cake

If you have never tried Cara Cara Orange Coffee Cake, or any orange coffee cake for that matter, you need to!  It really is amazing!  Hubby thinks so, too.  I cut a piece to take a picture later, put it aside and went about cleaning the mess I made in the kitchen.  I am a messy one!  When the kitchen was clean,  I went to take the picture of my perfect little piece of Cara Cara Orange Coffee Cake and it was gone!  Geez, I thought after hubby ate three pieces, this piece would be safe.  No!  He ate it!  Hence, the photo below is not the perfect piece I wanted to take a picture of.  I had to take a picture in a hurry and hope for the best.  This is it in all its glory.  From now on, if I want to take a picture of something I'll snap away or I'll hide it!  Enjoy!

Fluffy Microwave Pancakes

I started a board on Pinterest, Microwave…Making Life Easier.  While looking on the internet I found microwave pancakes on Oprah.  Wow!  I have tried a lot of things in the microwave but never pancakes.  These turned out to be the best pancakes ever!  They felt like fluffy clouds…honest! 

Fluffy Microwave Pancakes

2 cups Bisquick
1 egg, beaten
club soda
buttermilk
1 teaspoon sugar

Whisk Bisquick around to break apart lumps.  Add sugar, egg and enough club soda to moisten but not completely wet it.  Add enough buttermilk to make a medium batter.  Spray a microwave safe plate with non-stick spray or spritz with oil.  Put 1/4 cup, or enough to cover inner part of plate, batter on plate.  Microwave 30 to 40 seconds until pancake is no longer moist, not dry, and tiny holes appear.  Repeat with remaining batter.  Enjoy!
