Coconut Pancakes

These amazing coconut pancakes are rich, thick, and fluffy, with a lightly crispy exterior that will have you doubting the quality of all your previous pancake experiences. They started as a bit of an experiment. An “we’re out of milk but I still want pancakes” experiment. Craig did not have a whole lot of faith in this experiment initially, but I won him over with the test pancake. Yum.

Caramelized Onion & Chévre Quiche

You might not think so, but quiche has a lot going for it. Its versatile, delicious, and pretty hard to mess up. You can make it vegetarian friendly or load it up with bacon. You can eat it hot or cold, and for any meal of the day (including brunch, which is sort of the honorary fourth meal). But, best of all, the leftovers are so easy. And if you know me and leftovers, you know that I love them. Because, you see, without leftovers, I have beer and sweet potato fries for dinner far more than I should.

Tuscan Poached Eggs

I’m a poached eggs junkie. There, I said it. I like my poached eggs a lot. I quite literally have them for breakfast at least 6 days a week. Yum yum yum. Thankfully eggs are one of the only sources of cholesterol in my diet, or I might have a problem.

Trifecta Oatmeal

Oatmeal is, perhaps, the quintessential Scottish breakfast, meaning it’s in my genes to love it. It’s always been a classic weekend breakfast in my house, served with fresh fruit, milk, and lots of brown sugar. Yum. As I’ve grown up I’ve branched out into other toppings (maple syrup, granola, yoghurt, and even peanut butter!), but there’s still nothing quite like a warm bowl of porridge on a chilly morning.

Cranberry Syrup

I’m really proud of this recipe. It’s perfect for Christmas and Thanksgiving. I call it a syrup, but it also acts as an amazing jam. I love it with Pumpkin French Toast (especially with sour cream).
