10+ Perfect Breakfast Ideas for Christmas Morning Collage

In my family, Christmas morning brings homemade eggnog lattes, carols humming softly in the background, and the cheery twinkle of lights on the tree. The same twinkle is reflected in children’s eyes as they wake up before the sun does to check out what Santa left them, and it’s also reflected in my mom’s voice as she reads us the Christmas Story. To me, it’s the making of new memories that means the most.

Vanilla Bean Caramelized Pear Scones with Dark Chocolate Chunks

Vanilla Bean Caramelized Pear Scones with Dark Chocolate Chunks 1

These Vanilla Bean Caramelized Pear Scones with Dark Chocolate Chunks pair the sweet, floral flavor of pear with the complexity of dark chocolate for the perfect special occasion treat that comes together fast! After last year’s infamous Christmas Morning Scones, I knew I wouldn’t get away with not at least attempting to come up with another equally mind-blowing scone recipe. I had nothing particular in mind; no single ingredient I was dying to incorporate and no flavor profile I was trying to build. I let my mind wander, and as it did, my eyes came to rest on the bowl of pears on my counter. […]...

Piña Colada Banana Bread

Pina Colada Banana Bread 1

Banana bread-lovers, this Piña Colada Banana Bread is a must-try if you enjoy the tropical flavors of pineapple and coconut! I’m weird in that I don’t like bananas much. I buy them for two reasons: 1) they’re one of my hubby’s favorite fruits (not surprising, since we have pretty much opposite tastes in food), and 2) to let them ripen to near-rotting (yup, I love them super sweet) and either freeze them to use in smoothies or make banana bread. See? I’m weird....

Strawberry and Cream Smoothie Bowl

Strawberry and Cream Smoothie Bowl 1

Every spring I look forward to picking strawberries the same way I look forward to picking apples in fall. It’s like a seasonal rite of passage. But then when the time actually comes to do the picking, typically my basket isn’t even halfway full when I end up thinking about how much easier it would be to just buy the fruit pre-picked. So it goes every year, lol....

Mango Lassi Poppy Seed Muffins

Mango Lassi Poppy Seed Muffins 1

One day a while ago, Mike came home with a box of mangos. He was so excited because he found them up at a local Indian market for me because I had asked him for Indian (Alphonso) mangos. I asked him where the mangos were from and he proudly exclaimed “The Indian market!” I checked the produce stickers and had to laugh when I saw that they were from Mexico. He still gets the best husband in the world award for that though....

Savory Camembert Turnovers with Honey-Roasted Turkey and Lingonberry Jam

Savory Camembert Turnovers with Honey-Roasted Turkey and Lingonberry Jam

There are a multitude of Korean cafés/bakeries where we live in Alexandria. In fact, it seems that nearly every non-chain coffee shop in the area is either straight-up Korean or Korean with a French twist. At first, it took some getting used to. I mean, the coffee is good, really good, actually. And there’s the perk of having the option of bubble tea (which my niece can’t get enough of). The baked goods and pastries are decent too, but definitely interesting and somewhat surprising if you’re not used to them....
