Perfect for after-church-Sunday lunch, or any time, these cheddar biscuits come together quickly and complement just about any meal. … [Read more...]

Baked Oats & Walnut Pancakes

Baked Oats & Walnut Pancakes | TheMarathonMom.com

Making pancakes does not getting any easier than pouring the batter into a pan and baking!  Wow, I wish I had figured that one out sooner! These are still great if you want to make them on the griddle, but I specifically put together this recipe to bake in an 8x8 pan. Served warm with real butter and raw honey, these baked pancakes are delicious!  (And yes, I realize that "baked" and … [Read more...]

Pear Pecan Muffins

Pear Pecan Muffins :: TheMarathonMom.com

You've probably read my post about how we save money on groceries by buying a lot of our food in bulk at Costco.  So it's not unusual to see a case of pears sitting on our kitchen counter.  They usually only last a few days around here.  Unless...the case of apples is set directly on top of the case of pears for the car ride home. And alas, the magically aromatic pears, with their delicate … [Read more...]

Sweet Cornbread

Sweet Cornbread :: The MarathonMom.com

I've made a lot of cornbread through the years for my family. And growing up, I loved when my Mama made Jiffy cornbread.  I loved it so much that I fed it to my family, too, for several years. I've tried numerous recipes for both sweet and "unsweet" cornbread, and have never really been pleased with from scratch recipes.  And when I ground my own whole wheat for it to make this kind, I … [Read more...]

Strawberry Banana Bread


I've always loved banana nut bread.  And this is close, for sure, but with a special twist, of course, with the addition of fresh strawberries. When I saw a recipe for this yummy bread, I just knew it was one I would have to give a try.  Of course, I modified it since I like to use whole wheat flour and sucanat when possible. It is absolutely scrumptious!   … [Read more...]

Ezekiel Bread

022 (640x427)

I'm so excited to have a grain mill.  I have wanted one for YEARS. And finally, last week I received my Nutrigrain grain mill from The Bread Beckers.  I also picked up a fairly large order of grains and beans from Azure Standard just before that so that I would have all the ingredients my little heart desired to bake just about anything my boys' little hearts desired as soon as it … [Read more...]

Easy, Fluffy Biscuits

004 (640x427)

I've experimented with biscuit recipes for a very long time now.  There's just something about a homemade biscuit that's special.  A good, fluffy, soft biscuit tastes like home. I like this other buttermilk recipe that's pretty good, too, but this one is my  new favorite!  My good bloggy friend Candace at Sacred Mommyhood shared it with me a while back, promising it is the perfect biscuit … [Read more...]

Buttermilk Biscuits

These biscuits are the perfect match for chocolate gravy. Or regular gravy. Or scrambled eggs. Or use them for making bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches. We ate them like this for breakfast this morning: … [Read more...]
