Banana Black Bottom Muffins

Have you ever had a black bottom muffin/cupcake? It’s basically a chocolate cake base with a cream cheese cheesecake-like topping and it is definitely a decadent treat. These have some redeeming nutritional value since they have three bananas and we used low-fat cream cheese, but do not be fooled- even though these are acceptable for…

Buttermilk Biscuits

When we were younger, whenever our mom would make biscuits (a rare treat), she would serve them with honey butter on the side. To this day, my favorite way to eat a biscuit is hot out of the oven with a little butter and a drizzle of honey over the top. There are few things…

Smoky Chorizo Hash with Fried Eggs

I am convinced that one of the perfect foods is a potato hash with some delicious mix-ins. You might recall the asparagus and bacon hash we made a while ago, but I must say that this hash better. First off, you have chorizo (which you really can’t go wrong with), and then you have potatoes,…

Buttermilk Chocolate Chip Crumb Muffins

My senior year schedule has been busy to say the least. I like most of my classes, but the homework load, especially in AP Bio, has been huge. A few weeks ago my class was learning about the macromolecules that make up life (carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, and proteins, in case you were wondering). We…

Glazed Pumpkin Doughnut Muffins

Sorry for the slow posting this week! We’ve been pretty busy with school activities and homework, but hopefully next week we will be able to post more consistently. Since fall begins Sunday, we decided to share an ideal breakfast treat for you to make Sunday morning. We’ve made pumpkin muffins before (many, many times) and…

Perfect French Toast

I have to be honest, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, this French toast could easily pass as dessert. This is our favorite recipe out there for French toast, although we rarely make it because it’s not a very healthy way to start the day! However, when we do make it, it…

French Baguettes

I’m not sure if I mentioned this before, but I (Leah) really enjoyed chemistry at school, so much that I took AP Chem. Well, Celine also took the class, but I quote directly from her, “after the happy honeymoon period of the first couple classes ended, I was done for the whole year.” Well, she…

The Best Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

I (Celine) recently started a volunteer job at the library for the summer. While I don’t earn anything for helping out there (obviously, because of the word volunteer), it has been rewarding anyway! The library is a great place to work on a hot summer day because it’s very well air-conditioned, peaceful, and the work…

Scrambled Eggs with Spinach and Parmesan

A lot of egg-based breakfasts call for either sunny-side-up or fried eggs (like this breakfast sandwich), but a couple of people in our family are not fans of runny yolks. We usually remedy this by using egg whites, but that causes the problem of wasting yolks. It’s nice to find an interesting breakfast dish that…
