I’m a bona fide Nutella-holic.

I pretty much covered that little factoid about me in my last post, and here I am again, bringing you another hazelnut-stuffed dessert, only this time with bananas. Absolutely different, totally delightful, unbelievably satisfying for hazelnut + banana lovers such as myself. [Read more…]

'Tis the season for eggnog and decadent breakfast! These Eggnog Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup are the perfect Christmas Day treat to devour after opening presents beneath the tree.

In my hometown of Memphis, an eggnog-esque drink called Boiled Custard is sold during the holiday season. A quick Google search reveals it’s a Southern drink, though I’ve never seen it in any of the other places I’ve lived. (And I’ve lived all over the South.) [Read more…]


M&M Cookies

These M&M Cookies are the perfect dessert! The miniature sugar cookies are sweet, fluffy and chock full of plain M&M's. @speckledpalate for @mycookingspot

A few weeks ago, I ended up with a ginormous bag of M&M’s at my house.

I was just minding my own business, doing my own thing, and then suddenly, these M&M’s were taking over. I, of course, was eating them like they were going out of style. You know, as one does.

I love me any kind of baked good, especially on the weekend… and especially for breakfast.


As I was thinking about Mother’s Day and all the recipes my family and I have made in celebration of my mom over the years, I realized something: We always made dessert. And our attempts at baking only worked about half of the time, even though our hearts were in the right place.

While I’m sure we made her breakfast, too, I have no recollection of this. At. All.

So today? Today, I’m talkin’ Mother’s Day breakfast and a pretty darn simple baked good that you can whip up in no time to celebrate your mama.
