A trip to Myrtle Beach and then a trip to Ohio to visit my cousin who was visiting from England, now I’m exhausted. I’m unpacked, laundry is done, and my house is far from clean but that is a problem for another day.
This morning is the first time I’ve taken time to actually cook something for over two weeks. It is good to get back to a normal, healthy routine, even though I was spoiled letting my parents do the cooking while I was in Ohio. There is never anything quite like your momma’s home cooking…
My breakfast this morning is a result of a Taste of Home cookbook that my parents picked up on sale ($2) at some point between Easter and now. My mother is still under the impression that I don’t know how to cook and that I starve when I’m at my own place.
There looks to be TONS of delicious recipes in this book however, so I’ll enjoy experimenting and trying out a bunch of new things. However since it’s me, I started with the breakfast recipes. Most were slight variations on traditional pancakes and waffles…nothing too unique. Then I saw this recipe for French Breakfast Puffs…I don’t truly think there is anything “French” about them but they were a tasty breakfast treat, for those NOT on a low calorie diet.
