Coffee Cake Muffins

Mrs. Tucker loves a good muffin, don’t you?  When I was first married, and a beginning cook/baker, I made these Coffee Cake Muffins for special occasions, like birthdays and Christmas morning.  Anyone who was lucky enough to be a recipient, raved. They’ve been on my mind, so I decided to find the recipe and make […]

Sweet Orange Rolls

…or as I like to call them: Sweet Orange Rolls O’Yurm. I do love a lip-smackin’ sweet roll (hello, pumpkin-cinnamon streusel buns) and these Sweet Orange Rolls have been added to my ever-growing list.  They are delicately delicious. Freshly squeezed orange juice imparts a light flavoring.  You could add an orange extract to bump up […]

Blueberry Muffins with Double-D Donut Glaze

Muffins with donut glaze seems impossibly decadent, but double-dip those beauties and folks will want to marry you, kids will clean their rooms without nagging and grandkids will think you made them candy for breakfast.  Oh, my.

Banana Bread Pancakes

Pancake = Pan-CAKES = cakes!  That’s where my mind goes whenever I see the word pancakes. Yet, when I saw the recipe for banana in a pancake, I was dubious.  Its only saving grace was that the word “bread” followed. Confession time: I’m not a banana fan, yet I adore a moist dense banana bread. […]

Every August, when it’s blazing hot outside in Texas (today: 108° feels like 113°), I start thinking about holiday cooking. What to have, what to try, what to tweak. I’ve had this recipe on my mind for a few weeks now and just as it started feeling like the innards of an oven outside, I […]

Lifehack: Making Your Eggs Egg McMuffin-Style

I’m not a big fan of the Egg McMuffin mostly because I think it should taste as yummy as the picture looks, but never does.  I’d rather spend my money on things I can’t hack at home, like their delicious hot fries. ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links. When you do your […]

Vanilla Pudding Cinnamon Rolls For the Win!

I love cake. Doesn’t matter if it comes disguised as a cinnamon roll, I’m still in love, baby. After finishing the mud run last weekend, I decided I needed celebratory cake, STAT!, no matter what form it took.  I’m pretty easy like that. So, I did what any other self-respecting baking Grand Mudder would do, […]

Glazed Donut + Muffin = Glazed Donut Muffin?!

Do you like a sweet glazed donut? (YES!)  Do you like muffins?  (YES!) Then you’re probably gonna want to try this simple recipe for Glazed Donut Muffins. (Y-E-S!) Sunday, we had a very sick dog on our hands and then mid-morning three emergency vehicles were parked next door.  I did what I do in these […]
