like some passing afternoon.




When our church time changed to 2:00pm at the beginning of this year, I was worried we'd hate it. And even though there are some rough things about it, I've found myself really enjoying lazy Sunday mornings lately... especially when homemade blueberry streusel muffins are involved.

We're starting a monthly Sunday breakfast club with a few friends in the neighborhood, and I'm pretty excited about it. Any favorite breakfast foods or recipe ideas?

  3. ah man. where oh where were you guys like two years ago? (i know.. i say that all the time) but that neighborhood would've been that much better with the hardisons in it when we lived there.

    and as for breakfast club, i always go with the old standby with german pancakes (fun to put in indidual little dishes and serve with berries and powdered sugar.) 6 eggs, 1 c flour, 1 c milk, dash of salt, cap of vanilla, blend. pour in pyrex with melted butter in it and bake for 15 minutes at 375. easy peasy.

    oh and 2:00?! that's just cruel. especially with babies at that time.

  4. I love pancakes and bagels and sometimes we have crumpets although I prefer cumpets on a Sunday evening with lots of butter and jam followed by a slice of cake--it brings my childhood flooding back.

  5. Those muffins look so delish, and I love that neighborhood breakfast idea! I'd love to be a part of something like that. Also, crepes are always a fun breakfast meal for a large group.

  6. definitely not healthy but you should try cinnamon roll pancakes. SO GOOD. caution they're really sweet so even though I usually eat 3 or 4 pancakes I can only handle about 1 of them!

  8. Cinnamon roll pancakes if you're feeling especially naughty. Dillon made them this morning. With a side of fresh strawberries and tangerine slices, they're heaven!

  14. Anna's orange scones are heavenly. I ate way too many, but they are worth every crumb and drop of orange glaze. Mmm

  20. Angela- Your baby shower looked amazing!! I loved the pictures. wow. I am so sad we couldn't go. Logan and Emma had a piano recital right at that time, then Logan had a basketball game right afterwards. I actually debated, but decided I couldn't miss my kids stuff. I have a gift for you though... so I am going to bring it by some time in the next week. It is very special, tell Clint to be excited. :)

  21. i love the idea of breakfast club.. please elaborate!
    i just made the most delicious (if i do say so myself) dutch baby (giant pancake!), for a valentines day brunch last saturday...

    i'll be posting the recipes this week on my blog so look out :) the dutch baby would be great for entertaining because you can prep most of it the night before, then pop it into the oven the next morning.
    other ideas.. i think anything by pille!

  22. A breakfast club? That is the most perfect thing I've ever heard! Those muffins looks so good.

    Your baby shower looked so pretty and perfect, right from a magazine. But I wouldn't expect anything less from you and your friends. :)

  25. Fun! There is a Better Homes and Gardens strata recipe with ham and asparagus that I LOVE. We make it every Christmas because you can make it the night before, and cook it up quickly the next morning. I'm sure it's online somewhere! Perfect for your club.

    You look beautiful.
