Scrumptious Cinnamon Honey Scones with Raisins

I saw this recipe on GNOWFGLINS’ blog. This is a soaked wheat recipe – you soak the wheat overnight in an acid (in this case, apple cider vinegar) so that the phytic acid in the grain is broken down and your body is able to absorb all of the nutrients in the grain. I made this to take to Sunday School for breakfast. I worried that they would be heavy, dense, but they were amazing. They were so light, and melt-in-your-mouth. The original recipe is called “biscuits” but, they seemed more like a scone than a biscuit. They were SO good. My pictures are showing me making a double-batch to accommodate the Sunday School class.

Whole Wheat Vanilla Wafers

I found this recipe on Heavenly Homemaker’s site. The only thing that I do differently is to use vanilla beans instead of vanilla extract. We have grown to love this recipe! Gregg has always loved a snack of vanilla wafers and peanut butter. I love that I found such a healthy recipe. I send a batch or two with every care package to Gregg, and use them when I make Banana Pudding and Mascarpone Cheesecake with Almond Crust.

Greek Lenten Fritters (Tiganites)

Similar to small pancakes, these light, crispy medallion-sized treats are a delight served with honey or petimezi… or with syrup, preserves, or a creative topping of your own design. They can be eaten as a sweet snack, with breakfast, or as a brunch dish. Favorites during The Great Lent, these contain no eggs or dairy products. If served with honey, they are perfect for a Daniel Fast as well.

Natalee’s S’more’s Cub Cakes

Last week and this week, the Boy Scouts of America are celebrating their 100th Anniversary. I wanted to do something to recognize that, but with the church’s Valentine’s Day banquet this week, I was unable to do something “big” (like my idea for a cake with all of the logos of the different levels of Scouting.) Instead, I’m “stealing” a recipe from my brilliant cupcake artist friend, Natalee. Scouting makes me think of camping, camping makes me think of s’mores, and in a desperate attempt to be clever, I’ve dubbed these “Cub Cakes” (for the Cub Scouts…you get it…heh.)

Natalee’s Oatmeal Raisin Cupcakes

My friend Natalee agreed to do a guest blog for me while my husband and I ran away for a romantic weekend alone. When looking at the dates for the weekend, we discovered that one of the days fell on Benjamin Franklin’s birthday. As a tribute to this American icon, Natalee created a recipe using only ingredients that were found in Mr. Franklin’s time. She then decorated them in brilliant ways to show off Mr. Franklin’s contributions to history and culture. The post showing how to decorate them can be found here. This is a wonderful recipe to do with your children as a homeschooling aid.

Delectable Blondies

My husband does not like chocolate, so whenever I make Brownies, I always make him a pan of Blondies. Instead of relying on chocolate for their flavor, they’re all about the brown sugar, giving them a wonderful flavor of molasses, warm and inviting.

Eggnog Pancakes

I set out with the intent of creating a week of “Christmas Breakfast Ideas” and had the thought of doing an eggnog pancake recipe. Well, the eggnog recipe that I’ve been making since my mom would let me into the kitchen is simply: 1 egg, 1 cup whole milk, sugar, and spices. Since my pancake recipe calls for 1 egg and 1 cup milk, rather than having to go through the extra bowl and beaters to make eggnog, we’re just going to make pancakes with eggnog seasonings.
