Christmas morning is always a little “cray-cray” around this Nest! Even with all the crazy going on I wan the “birds” at this Nest to have plenty of steam to open up their gifts. So several years ago… I came up with this hearty, tasty, and easy Breakfast Casserole. It’s loaded with flavor, and protein, to keep them going throughout the morning…well that a little hot chocolate or spiced cider ought to do the trick!

Crumb Baked Donuts

I love coffee cakes with that cinnamon sugar crumb topping! So, it would only make sense that I would LOVE a baked donut with that same yummy mouth watering crumb topping. I can’t claim this recipe as my own… because it isn’t. This one belongs to Ashley at Baker By Nature. I did do a little “tweaking” by adding chopped almonds to the crumb mixture and a splash of buttermilk to the dough for a little extra moisture. Who needs a donut shop when you can have these ready in a matter of minutes!

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins are the perfect Fall breakfast treat! I think Linus should have waited up for these and not “The Great Pumpkin!”. This pumpkin muffin is so moist and packed full of wonderful Fall spices… like cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg and clove. It’s topped off with an amazing cinnamon brown sugar streusel that is finger licking good! Then drizzled with a vanilla icing! It all comes together to make the most amazing Pumpkin Muffin you will ever eat!

Peaches and Cream Scones

It could be my English blood, but I love muffins,biscuits, and scones! I’m a huge fan of baking powder and baking soda breads! They are so easy to make when you are in a hurry and looking for something yummy! When done right they are light, flaky, and a carb lovers dream come true! Last week I was looking for something to smother with my freshly made peach jam. These Peaches and Cream scones filled the bill! I think you’ll love them as much as we did!
