Pepper Jack Benedict

Pepper Jack Benedict

I created this recipe to helps spice up a classic dish. The pepper jack hollandaise is such a creamy sauce that is to die! The spicy kick in the sauce is a perfect pair with the grilled cornbread and poached egg.

Finnish Biscuit

Finnish Biscuit

This is a family recipe that my grandmother handed down to me. My grandmother’s family immigrated from Finland to Minnesota and with them came their recipes. Ever since I was a little girl I loved to visit my grandma to help her make and have some of her Finnish Biscuit. Finnish Biscuit is a delicious loaf of bread with a cinnamon and sugar swirl on the inside. It is best toasted and with a layer of your favorite butter on top.

Tara’s Peaches and Cream Cheese Kolachies

Tara’s Peaches and Cream Cheese Kolachies

We would stop and buy these little treats at a gas station whenever we went down south in the summer. I just didn’t want to wait until then to get another one so figured out a recipe for it on my own.

Queen Margherita Potato Frittata

Queen Margherita Potato Frittata

I created this recipe using one of my favorite comfort foods, potatoes. I turned this Italian dish into a frittata. I also topped this frittata with ingredients from a Margherita Pizza, creating a whole different recipe.

Biscuits and Gravy

Biscuits and Gravy

My favorite meal of all time is biscuits and gravy. I love it not only because it’s delicious, but for me, it has always provided the feeling of something constant. I’m a California-born, Japan-raised, daughter of a retired Marine from Michigan and a mother from the Philippines. I am not a child of the South, and by no means was destined to fall in love with this southern classic. So how did it happen? Christmas morning, every year, for as long as I can remember…

MINI SKILLET FRITTATAS

MINI SKILLET FRITTATAS

This frittata is loaded with eggs, meats, cheese, and veggies, then baked in a mini cast iron skillet. They make any breakfast a special event.

LOADED BREAKFAST PANINI

This loaded breakfast panini is a delicious, colorful way to start your day. Ham, bacon, egg, cheese, baby spinach, and tomato on toasted bread is perfection on a plate.

Sea Salt Banoffee Snacking Cake

Sea Salt Banoffee Snacking Cake

My grandmother always made this snacking cake in the summertime. After eating dinner out on the patio, she would bring it out for a post-dinner treat. Sometimes, if we were lucky, we’d have it for breakfast the next day, too. The flavors are a play on the traditional Banoffee Pie (but, in my opinion, cakes are always more fun!)
