Fried Cheese Egg Toast – The Breakfast of Champions (In a Rut)

I’m not sure what your usual breakfast routine entails, but chances are you occasionally get bored with it, and crave something completely different, and when that happens, it doesn’t get much more different than this fast, and easy fried cheese egg toast.

Chocolate Granola – Take That, Count Chocula!

I know chocolate granola sort of sounds like candy, but introducing cocoa into the mix not only makes it delicious, it also actually makes it better for you! Possibly. No one is really sure.

Turnips with Bacon & Onion

I’ve done a fancier version of this before; Rutabaga with Bacon, Mushrooms & Onions, but it bears repeating, and turnips are bit different from their cousins the rutabagas.

Oladi – Russian Yeast-Raised Pancakes

Russian, I’m saying, but versions of these are found all over eastern Europe. Until the advent of baking soda and baking powder, all baked goods were raised with yeast. Native North Americans raised their cornbreads with alkaline wood ashes, as yeast would do nothing with their gluten-free corn. European settlers created more refined versions and since then it seems most …

Scottish Oatcakes – The Pancake, Not the Paperweight

If you Google, “Scottish Oatcakes,” you’ll see lots of pictures of what looks like thick, dense, pressed oatmeal cookies, which is the most common version of this recipe. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of those, since they tend to be very heavy, and filling, and not really something I want to feature as the centerpiece for a …
