Waffled Biscuits and Gravy

My sister-in-law, Anna, loves Biscuits and Gravy. It’s one of her favorite American breakfasts. Whenever she comes to visit, we always make sure to go out for breakfast and invariably, that’s what she orders. Biscuits and Gravy is an old American favorite, especially down south. It’s literally a biscuit topped with sausage gravy, sometimes also…

Sausage Apple Stuffing

Every year, when Thanksgiving would roll around, I would try a new stuffing recipe to serve with our turkey. I tried making chestnut stuffing, cornbread stuffing, caramelized onion stuffing, ciabatta stuffing, cranberry nut stuffing, sundried tomato stuffing, you name it. The kids never liked any of them!

These little bites were so easy…

Sausage-Potato Breakfast Casserole

This is such a yummy breakfast casserole. Everyone who tries it loves it! The sausage cooked in the rich creamy sauce is reminiscent of good ole’ Southern biscuits and gravy. The first time I tried this casserole was while on vacation in Oregon with my brother-in-law, Manuel, his wife, JoAnn, and their two beautiful daughters. Every other…

Breakfast Scramble

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. There’s something empowering about starting a new day with your family gathered around you at the table, with all the noise and chaos that that involves. Invariably, some challenge will arise — someone realizes they’ve misplaced their homework, someone doesn’t want pancakes, someone is missing a shoe, or any…
