Make Ahead French Toast Casserole

daisi - April 24, 2015

This Easter, since the baby is still sleeping a lot, I wanted to host everyone at our house. Baby sleep is a topic I google 24/7, so I’m serious about him getting his day sleep any way we can. And speaking of the baby… since he’s been around I don’t have a whole lot of time to spend in the kitchen. This lead me to …

The smoothie is easy and healthy and a …

Breakfast Bake

daisi - July 9, 2012

I saw these breakfast bars on pinterest and knew I had to make them immediately. They combine your basic breakfast foods into one delicious and easy casserole… biscuits? check. eggs? check. bacon & cheese? check. check. I chose a birthday breakfast at work to test the recipe and it was very popular. It might be the easiest breakfast casserole in existence, which makes it perfect for …

crustless quiche with spinach & bacon

daisi - May 30, 2012

So in an attempt to shed some last minute poundage, I went low carb for a week or two before the wedding. We all know that carbs are the devil, but bacon? Bacon is our low carb best friend. So I whipped up a quick crustless bacon and spinach quiche. It’s so delicious, you won’t even miss the crust. Promise. Here’s what you’ll need: 3 slices …

Cherry Street

So sorry for the brief hiatus. I squeezed in a ski vacation (pics coming soon), so I haven’t had time to blog since coming back and catching up on work. I have been wanting to share with you my new favorite brunch place in Tulsa. It’s one of my favorite restaurants for dinner and I recently found out they were open for brunch. It’s so good …

Blueberry Avocado Smoothie

daisi - January 5, 2012

I love smoothies. That being said I rarely make them at home. And by rarely I mean never. Usually I see a smoothie recipe that looks good, but the ingredient list is impossible. Long lists of healthy fruits and yogurts and vitamins equals a hefty price tag. I never saw the point. That is until a friend of mine, Miss Molly, told me about a …

Leftover Breakfast Burritos

daisi - April 1, 2011

Ever find yourself at the end of the week with a fridge full of random? It happens to me more often than I’d like to admit. The only good thing that comes from it is a chance to get creative and make a tasty meal. This week we had a taco night and had some leftover ground beef, black beans, onions and red peppers. These …

Ooey Gooey Cinnamon Rolls

daisi - March 14, 2011

Full disclosure – this is a Pioneer Woman tried and true recipe, I’m just sharing with you my experience (and the messy kitchen pictures to prove it). This recipe came highly recommended from a bunch of my friends, like people who bought the cookbook specifically for this recipe. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a breakfast lover OR a baker, so you can imagine my …

It’s Breakfast Time: Sour Cream Pancakes

daisi - January 24, 2011

Here’s something you won’t see from me very often. A breakfast recipe. Call me crazy, but I’m not a breakfast person. If I wake up on a weekend after 9:30, I’d rather wait for lunch or grab lunch at a great place that has their entire menu available all day, every day (ahem ,Sonic). On rare occasion, I’ll make breakfast. Usually when guests are involved… …
