Persimmon-Pecan-Cranberry Muffins

by Daisy Breads

‘Tis the season to pick delicious things up off the ground. So far this fall I’ve picked up about 35 pounds of pecans (pre-shelled weight unfortunately), and enough persimmons to make 10 cups of persimmon puree. Today I looked at them and decided they looked like muffins. I adapted a few of the persimmon recipes […]

Feel Good Biscuits

by Daisy Breads

In an effort to feed my family a better “everyday” biscuit, I adapted a traditional drop biscuit recipe. With oat flour, whole wheat, flaxseed and coconut oil, I think I have a winner. They’re a little bit crumblier than your usual biscuit, but they still hold together quite well considering all the fiber in there. […]

Lemon Poppyseed Buttermilk Pancakes

by Daisy Breakfast

I could eat the same thing for breakfast day in and day out, but my kids like for me to mix things up. Sometimes I grumble a bit about this, but I hunt around and find a new recipe or make something up and then, I confess, I enjoy it, too. A lot. This is […]

Personal Pancakes

by Daisy Breakfast

Ever woken up early on a weekend, everyone else is still asleep, and you think, “Pancakes sound really good right now.” But you don’t want to stand at the stove for thirty minutes making a whole batch of pancakes that will be cold by the time everyone else is up, so you don’t do it. […]

Freezer Cooking Win…and Fail: Baked Bacon

by Ivory Soap Breakfast

  Those biscuits were awesome, btw, but I will get to those in another post.  Right now we need to talk PIG. My children really latched onto that “World Bacon Shortage” story back in September.  I think it’s a self-fulfilling prophesy, as they are eating bacon like “shortage” meant “extinction.” My husband used to bar tend at […]

Sunflower-Pumpkin Seed Pancakes

by Ivory Soap Breads

Some things grind in a coffee grinder better than others.  Seeds, for instance do much better than nuts.  I don’t know why.  I think it’s the size and the fact that they’re a drier product.  Anyway, here’s another set of grain free pancakes.  I’m addicted to them.  Butter, drizzle of honey, and then I eat […]

Grain-Free Porridge

by Ivory Soap Breakfast

This is one of those I-haven’t-had-grain-in-so-log-I’m-dying recipes.  It’s NOT something you’d eat if you could have real oatmeal.  It’s gritty and sticks in weird places in your mouth, but if you’re missing hot cereal as much as I am, it’ll do. You’re basically going to make a soupy muffin batter and cook it on the […]

Grain-free Pancakes

by Ivory Soap Breads

First, let me apologize for these pictures.  I have a new camera and I didn’t find the macro button until 30 seconds ago.  So, this and the next post WILL BE GRAINY, though the recipes are not.  HA!  I hate puns. Anyway, a friend of mine with similar digestive issues suggested I try the Specific […]

I know,  know. You’re thinking next I’ll be posting a tutorial on how to blow your nose. But, talking to Ivory the other day about how hard it is to shell fresh, hardboiled eggs, (yes, we are exciting people, I believe it is our fourth conversation on the subject) I mentioned how I just crack […]

Great Grits!

by Ivory Soap Breakfast

Great Grits Really excellent grits are never soupy.  They are sticky like sushi rice and could likewise be eaten with chopsticks if necessary (which I totally did in college cause our suite-mates kept thieving the silverware and it was all I had left.) 1.  Boil one jar’s worth of water.  (Or cup or several cups)  […]

Perfect Cinnamon Toast

by Ivory Soap Breakfast

I learned to make cinnamon toast at my father’s knee.  Incorrectly made cinnamon toast, like incorrectly made oatmeal, was simply not fit to eat!  So for all those whose parents were uneducated in the ways of proper cinnamon toast, I offer the following tutorial. Daddy’s Cinnamon Toast Rules 1.  Wheat-esque bread required.  Natures Own, Roman […]

Perfect Microwave Eggs

by Ivory Soap Breakfast

It’s not possible.  I know.  But trust me.  It all works off that ‘eggs continue cooking after they leave the stove’ thing. 1.  Place eggs in CERAMIC bowl and scramble well. 2.  UNDERCOOK them. For my micky, it’s 30 seconds per egg. This is too wet: What you’re looking for is just before it permanently […]

No-Measure Whole Grain Pancakes

by Daisy Breakfast

Technically, yes, you have to measure, but they are the kind of measurements I can hang with–approximate. I make these all the time because I don’t have to get a cookbook or recipe card out. I just scoop, dump and stir. The measurements are approximate and that’s the beauty of ’em. No measuring spoons or […]
