This was always one of my favorite snacks growing up, and now it’s one of my kids. I couldn’t find my Nana’s recipe though when I went to make it this morning, so I hunted around online until I found one that I thought was similar, then just made a couple of changes to it. While I found the recipe on Tasty Kitchen, I’ll give you the like to the author’s actual blog here: One Ordinary Day.

I wanted to make something as a treat for the kids today, and something that Bo could take with him in the car. Doughnuts. Doughnuts seemed like the perfect thing. So, off I went looking for doughnut recipes that I could quickly whip up. My first lesson: those soft, squishy, glazed doughnuts are yeast based and take hours of time to rise and make. They were out of the picture. Cake style it is.

I’ve been trying for a few years now to figure out a way to make the perfect, pizzeria style pizza at home. I’m slowly getting closer. My first few dough’s were almost more focaccia like (not what I was looking for), and while this one is the closest yet to what I’m aiming for, it was a little sweeter than I wanted.
What I have perfected though: the sauce. Man oh man did I find the sauce (and it tastes almost exactly like Pizza Huts sauce). And that part is sooo easy.

I wasn’t really sure what to call these. I’m just starting to try to make different kinds of bread, and the ones that Bo really wanted me to figure out are the kind you get at Logan’s Roadhouse in the US. These did not turn out like those buns. What I have stumbled upon though is a fantastic burger and sandwich bun! Like, really fantastic. I’ve made them a few times now too, just to make sure that my screw up wasn’t a one off (it wasn’t, these are definitely dense like a burger bun and not light as air like those sweet rolls, a problem for another day).

I find breakfast to be the hardest meal of the day to figure out. It can be tough to switch things up enough that the kids don’t get board, without just filling a bowl with sugary cereal (though I do that quite frequently as a snack before breakfast, so don’t think I’m preaching here). Muffins, I’ve decided, are going to become a go-to for me. Both kids love them, they last for a couple of days so I usually get two days of breakfast out of them without any complaints, and they’re really not that hard to make.

Here’s a quick and easy recipe to change-up your breakfast routine. I get bored some times of the waffles, pancakes, french toast, eggs and bacon (though I will say that these are an awesome compliment to the eggs and bacon if you’re doing a big brunch style breakfast), etc. Some times it’s just nice to make a plate of something that you can pick at throughout the morning. And afternoon. And evening until they’re completely gone. Not that I’m saying this has happened before.
Oliver’s quite the fan of them too, but how couldn’t he be. They’re little muffins rolled in cinnamon sugar. There is absolutely nothing not to like here. Let’s get to it!

This is one of my favorite breakfasts to make. When Oliver’s having a lazy morning, and he just wants to lay on the couch and watch a movie, I almost always make him a bowl of these so that he can just grab them with his hand and pop them in his mouth.
Traditionally they’re made using challah bread, but that’s not something I keep on hand. I just use the white Italian style sandwich bread that I buy. It’s a bit thicker and much sturdier then the wonderbread, etc. though, so if that’s the kind you typically have on hand you’ll probably want to get the challah or Italian style sandwich bread for this. The bread cubes soak in the egg mixture, so the softer, finer crumb options will just fall apart on you.

Seriously, this is THE easiest bread I think you can make. I am terrified of making bread, it always goes back to this one time a couple of years ago that I tried to make an Italian loaf and it turned out like a skinny rubber snake. An experience like that can scar you.
I came across this recipe on Pinterest here, and she found it on a couple of other sites, but as far as I can figure out it originated from Le Creuset. Makes sense seeing as it bakes in a Dutch oven.

These are the easiest cinnamon sticky buns you will ever make, and that’s a promise. Want to know the secret? You’re not going to make any dough. I first gave these a try on Christmas morning, thinking it could be a quick way to eat something between opening presents, without missing out on any of the fun with the kids. They were a huge hit, and exactly what I was hoping for.
And yes, these really are in the oven in 5 minutes.
Last week Bo reminded me that they didn’t need to only be made on Christmas though (his not so subtle way of asking for them for breakfast this weekend). Point taken.

Just another quick sandwich post, clearly I have an addiction going right now.
Ciabatta bread, fried egg, fried peameal bacon, a dash of ketchup (if that’s your thing), and some cheese (personally I’m a fan of havarti; I’m a fan of it on just about everything).
So, no recipe coming with this one, I don’t think it’s necessary (that and I didn’t take any pictures during). This can just be one of those things where you wake up and go, “yep, time for that Canadian sandwich”.
