School mornings are one of the most hectic parts of our days! Between someone complaining their shoes no longer fit, someone else forgetting to charge their computer overnight, someone leaving their water bottle at school, or someone not liking the way that particular piece of clothing feels on their body, mornings can be a crazy and frustrating! One of the ways I have found makes our days run smoother is by having easy breakfasts ready to go! I am sharing seven easy breakfasts for busy mornings – and most of them you can make ahead of time!
I don’t know about your family, but my family LOVES blueberry muffins! I have been trying new recipes for years, and I finally created one that mixes the best parts of each recipe I have tried! They were big winners at our house!
I gotta tell you! I made these for Henry and Lucy last week, and my “cool points” went through the roof! These cinnamon roll waffles were a huge hit and so easy to make!
If you are like me, you are constantly in a hurry before school starts to get the kids out the door to be on time to school! I have been making a few things head of time this year to help our mornings run smoother! Lucy and her friend were the chefs for these make-ahead egg cups! They had a ball making them!
Now that the school has started (or will start soon) for most of us, it’s time for some easy breakfasts that you can make ahead of time to make your mornings run smoother! Over the years, I have finally perfected this granola! I have tried several recipes and finally mixed them together to make one my family LOVES! We even have it for desserts some nights!
I started making this recipe this year for the kids! It is our spin on French toast – without any eggs! The kids love the taste, and I love how fast I can make these in the morning!
Briton requested a few oldies but goodies for dinners this week! So…. I busted out the photo album that holds all of our favorite recipes! It was kind of fun to glance back at recipes I made throughout the years! We landed on “Sausage Rolls”, and I realized that I had never made these for the kids! So while 90% of the time, we try to eat healthy, it is fun to splurge 10% of the time on a recipe like sausage rolls!! The kids absolutely loved these and can’t wait to have them again!
During this extra time at home, I have been looking through all of my recipes and making some that I haven’t made in years! I remember Briton having these cookies in his lunch in high school when we were dating! These are filled with simple ingredients that you probably have on hand, and they are a family favorite! And yes… even though I don’t like chocolate, I still make them for my chocolate-loving family!
When Briton and I first got married, his mom gave me a recipe book filled with all of his favorite recipes from growing up! Since we are all home more, I have been looking through the book and finding some of our favorites that I haven’t made for years! These frosty strawberry squares are such a refreshing dessert! Ironically, I had never made them for the kids! We made these this week, and they have been a HUGE hit!
My favorite cold drink at Starbucks is their Passion Lemonade! Since we are home these days, I am sharing how I make it from home! And since I don’t like to have very much sugar, I use honey instead of sugar!
