Summer Berry Crepes

My first try making crepes and they turned out light and yet firm enough to wrap fresh summer fruit in the middle. The crepes have a nice hint of lemon from the lemon powder rather than lemon juice. Lemon juice would thin the batter too much and may curdle the milk. Hubby loved the special Sunday breakfast so much, he wants it for dinner too! Time to pick more berries, that is for sure!

Homemade Organic Yogurt

Homemade Plain Yogurt with Dehydrator

My mom had a nifty yogurt maker with little bitty cups. Now we eat pints of yogurt and I cook East Indian food with it as well as use it in baked goods. Those little cups weren't my choice. This way makes a good amount of yogurt simply. Of course add your own fruit or sweetener. Best part you know what went into your yogurt with no fillers! Read More About Making Yogurt at Home!

Zucchini Hash Browns

Zucchini Hash Browns

Summertime one gets creative with Zucchini. This is an excellent way to add that to a summer breakfast remake on hash browns. A much lighter and flavorful version than one with just starchy potatoes.

Oatmeal Cookies

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

This is my family's official "cookie" recipe. Something on a card that has been made for decades. I have made a few changes such as the sub for coconut oil for shortening and changed out the raisins and walnuts for more of an assortment.
