Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

Alternate title is “Healthy Zucchini Bread”. I realized I didn’t have any zucchini bread on my site and I believe the reason is that the zucchini bread most people love is so laden with sugar and oil that in reality, it’s zucchini cake. I have these double chocolate zucchini muffins on the site which...

Overnight Waffles

Overnight Waffles

Leo and I just decided we’re going to make these every Christmas Eve. There isn’t a better smell than the steam that comes off the waffle iron when these are cooking. The flavor, even without butter and syrup, is like the lightest, airiest dinner roll you’ve ever had. Afraid of yeast? I get it,...

Restaurant Style French Toast

Restaurant Style French Toast
