Blueberry and Yogurt Loaf from Donna Hay

Blueberry Yogurt Loaf

This blueberry yogurt loaf is just what you want with your morning coffee or at the end of a great meal.  It’s a dense, lemony, buttery loaf of goodness.  I’ve made it at least six times in the last month.  It’s that good.

Don’t get the wrong idea and think it is a blueberry pound cake.  It’s not.  It’s a cross between a pound cake and a quick bread.  It’s a lovely thing because you can use two bowls and you need no mixer.

Banana Muffins with Chocolate from Katie Workman

Banana Muffins Katie Workman

Every body loves muffins or cupcakes. To me they are one in the same.  These muffins/cupcakes will knock your socks off. They have the best ingredients butter, sour cream, bananas and chocolate. You know there’s nothing wrong with a little chocolate in the morning. It does a girl good!  All kidding aside these are great. To take away some of the guilt pair them with a big bowl of fresh fruit and Greek yogurt. That’s one great way to start your morning.

This is another of Katie Workman’s recipes. It’s super easy to put together and really turns out a moist and rich muffin. So next time you’re looking for something great to do with two bananas that are two hours from heading to the trash then this is what you need to cook up in you kitchen.   You will make somebody happy.

Pizza Dough from Scratch

Homemade Pizza Dough

One of the last demonstrations that I did for my classes this year was homemade pizza dough.  It is really easy to make and my students were in awe!  I use my Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook, but  the dough can be made in a food processor or using the dough cycle on a bread machine.  All three work well.  You can also make the dough by hand, but it will take a little more work.

Sausage Balls Made with Buttermilk

Sausage Balls made with Buttermilk

I love sausage balls for breakfast.  When Syble told be about this recipe that she got from her sister Sue I knew that I had to try it.  It’s another easy one that anyone can do.   Make and freeze so you can pull them out anytime.  My freezer is my friend for so many baked goods.  Let it do some work for you.  You’ll be that much more organized in the morning when it is crunch time to get out of the door.

Cinnamon Sugar Snackers

snackers

This is a great idea to get your kids in the kitchen.  I made these last week for my high school students and they loved them!  It is something that can be thrown together in a matter of minutes and the next thing you know you are enjoying them with a cup of Joe!  It makes about 30 at about 80 calories each with is not too bad.  So if you were like me with some canned biscuits hanging around in the refrigerator these are winners.

Blueberry Muffins made with Greek Yogurt

So Yummy!I have fallen in love with Donna Hay’s Magazine.  Thanks to a tweet from Tami who writes a beautiful food blog Running With Tweezers I downloaded a free issue last year.  Oh my goodness is it beautiful!  If you are an Ipad user you should go here and load it now , sit down and indulge yourself with the most beautiful food photography and mouth-watering recipes .  Should you want the magazine in hand just head over to Whole Foods to get a copy or order it to be delivered to your doorstep.  Shop around for a good price on a subscription.  After I downloaded the free issue I am now able to get it for about $20.    I just love it!  I could go on and on, but you get the idea.  It is without a doubt a work of art.  This is the first of her recipes that I have tried and you can bet there will be many more.  This is a muffin from heaven and I didn’t even use fresh summer blueberries as I did here.  I picked up Publix frozen blueberries which turned out to be a fabulous choice.  Donna’s basic muffin recipe will be one that I will be making many more times.  I did make one change though.  She used sour cream and I substituted non-fat plain Greek yogurt.  These are super moist and so flavorful.  I have several in my freezer now ready to pop into the microwave for about 30 seconds.  What a great idea.  I think I’ll have one.  What about you?

Banana Nut Muffins with Bran

Look no further for I have found the perfect breakfast muffin!  It is healthy and taste fabulous. Yes,  I would put it right up there with the best banana nut bread I have ever made.  It is just that good!

When bananas start to go bad I peel them and place in a freezer bag.  The freezer does some kind of magic to the bananas.  It’s almost like the best banana liqueur that exists.  In other words freezing really develops their flavor.  Frozen bananas that were calling out to me, “Use Me, Use Me!” started this whole search for a recipe using bananas, buttermilk, and bran buds.  This is what I found.
