These are adapted from Banana-walnut bread from the Bon Appetit Cookbook edited by Barbara Fairchild, but I wanted muffins and can't be bothered with buttermilk and shortening. The yogurt makes them moist and chewy.

Makes 24 muffins. No special equipment required. Contains egg, dairy and flour.

Recipes (well, sort of):

Pan fried gnocchi:

1 package pancetta (or any other pork)
One half large onion, chopped
One bell pepper, chopped
One package (gluten free) gnocchi
Some rosemary
Some olive oil (unless using bacon or pork with decent amount fat)

Cut the pancetta in half. Put half of this in skillet on medium-high heat with onion and pepper and oil as needed.

Pull out pancetta at some point, let the onions/pepper get to deliciously caramelized. Add rosemary about this time.

Once your gnocchi is done boiling, drain and add to the skillet. Add rest of pancetta, make certain there's enough oil, flip it about 2 minutes in, and remove within five minutes.

Waffle iron hashbrowns:

Tater tots
Waffle iron

Get out of waffle iron. Add frozen tater tots to your waffle iron. Keep it pressed down long enough for everything to cook and meld together. You want it crispy-crunchy. Takes about six minutes.

This is less a recipe to make on its own as a meal idea to be made for when you're batch cooking in the slow cooker or stove top or oven, and are browning huge amounts of mince (ground meat) in the morning or around noon and are noticing you need to eat but also need to finish the prep for the batch cooking DAMMIT!

This meal idea is low-spoon, almost-instant, high-protein, doesn't dirty any more dishes except for a fork, requires only 2 EGGS in additional ingredients, and is pretty much guaranteed to fix your hunger pangs within 5 minutes, give or take.

So today I got back from a long trip to find bare cupboards, and a hankering for something fresh and tasty for breakfast. Preferably also hot...

We *did* have blueberries and eggs, somehow, along with stock pantry items such as whole wheat pastry flour (yet somehow not all purpose flour?). I made blueberry muffins, altering a recipe I found online. Thus, "Substitution Sunday Blueberry Muffins were born."

Read on for the recipe and a glorious photograph, as well as a link to the original recipe )

I found the brown sugar and whole wheat worked really well together, as it gave the muffins a sugary crunch that contrasted nicely with warm exploding blueberry goodness. Om nom nom indeed.

Zucchini come in waves, especially given that we grow some and our CSA does too (not to self: more pumpkins and acorn squash next year, one zucchini hill, tops). It is nice that these loaves work fine with frozen shredded zucchini, too. Elizabeth makes these more than I do, but we both enjoy them, as does my friend's mum, Anjuu, who is providing the impetus to get the recipe shared. The recipe is adapted from the Bon Appetit Cook Book (Fairchild, 2006), which is a massive tome similar to the Joy of Cooking, but a little fancier in general. These loaves have a nice light inside and a toothy crust.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour two loaf pans.

1 cup
whole wheat flour
1½ cups
unbleached white flour
1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon
ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon
baking soda
¼ teaspoon
baking powder
large eggs
1½ cups
brown sugar or white sugar (both variations are tasty)
1 cup
canola oil
1 teaspoon
vanilla extract
2 cups
coarsely grated zucchini (about one zucchini caught before it gets unwieldy)
1 cup
chopped and toasted walnuts

Whisk together flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, and baking powder.

Beat eggs in a separate bowl until foamy, then gradually add sugar and keep mixing until well mixed and thick.

Beat in oil gradually, then vanilla.

Stir in mixed dry ingredients, bit by bit.

Fold in zucchini.

Fold in walnuts.

Pour into pans. Bake about 90 minutes, until knife in centre comes out clean.

Let cool in pan; we just serve from the loaf pans.

These loaves stay moist for a day or two in the bread box, and can be frozen.

I've experimented with wild yeast a bit and I'm really happy with the results. Maybe some of you would like to try their hands at it? Be prepared to exercise patience though. But it's really worth it and not difficult at all. And no kneading required!

I made these on Saturday to use up some cream before it turned. Someone blogging about this recipe described it as "life-changing." I wouldn't go that far but they disappeared pretty quickly. The recipe is from Marion Cunningham's excellent The Breakfast Book.

This recipe comes from the original Australian Women's Weekly cookbook. It's supposed to be a pikelet recipe, but IMHO the batter is too thin and it works better if you make big thin pancakes out of it. [Note - my idea of a 'pancake' is a thin batter in a wide circle that can be rolled. But not as thin as a crepe. A pikelet is closer to an American pancake or flapjack. Yes, I know, this is linguistic ridiculousness at its best.]

My husband loves biscuits. I’ve become a big fan as well. He doesn’t cook so it’s all up to me. Over the years I’ve been trying different recipes and seeing what I like best.

For a while I was using the Food Processor Baking Powder Biscuits out of the King Arthur Flour 200th Anniversary Cookbook but then I saw this one over at Kitchen Mage and liked that too but it wasn’t sweet enough for me so I made changes and the end result is pretty much making it a mix of those two recipes.

Keep in mind these are American Biscuits and that I’m from New England…My idea of what a biscuit should taste like isn’t not necessarily what yours is.

 So, I'm bored out of my mind for various reasons, and go on a journey of discovery through our less-used cabinets. What do I find? An almost empty, still good bag of cornmeal that I haven't touched in far too long.

Due to lack of cheese to make jalapeno cornbread, I settled for cornmeal pancakes!

Successful experiment below... )

I'm sad that no one's shared plain pancakes yet. So I shall fix that. And since pancakes are nothing without some good toppings, I'm including a recipe for pancake syrup as well as some other easy topping ideas.

First up:

This is a really simple food, but so easy and quick and delicious that my roommate and I eat it at least once a week for breakfast. It fulfills many nutritional requirements, and is vegetarian (if you eat eggs).

This is the Tamarack Blueberry Muffin recipe from 500 Treasured Country Recipes from Martha Storey and Friends. This evening, I replaced the fresh blueberries with frozen raspberries (a bag and a half of 'em), but I have made them with blueberries before.

PS: That book I linked to above, the Martha Storey one? It is one of the most reliable and consistently good cookbooks I own. If you have one cookbook, you should have that one.
