My hope is to inspire you to get in the kitchen and have an adventure. Make something you have never tried before.  Push yourself to make something you have always been intimidated to make but most importantly to have fun and make memories!


Breakfast

Buttermilk Biscuits

Ah, biscuits!    Growing up every Saturday morning I was awaken by the smell of biscuits in the oven.  Both my mom and grandmother have a natural talent for making amazing biscuits.  You know, that talent where no measuring cups or scales are used.  Unfortunately, I did not inherit this trait from either of them.  I have never really been a great biscuit maker.  Sure, I have tried tons of recipes but they have never been as great as the biscuits I grew up eating.  I finally stumbled upon this recipe which is pretty darn close to perfect.  I have made these biscuits many times now and I know this is the recipe I will always use.

Vanilla Almond Granola

 Ok guys I have a confession…this is my first time making granola.  I’m not sure why I waited so long since I eat yogurt and granola for breakfast practically every morning.  One of the main reasons why I have not made my own granola is because a lot of the recipes I’ve seen call for a lot of ingredients.  Most of which I usually don’t keep in my pantry.  This is one of the easiest recipes plus it only calls for a few simple ingredients which was a real winner in my book.  Now that I have finally made my own granola there will be a new batch in my oven on a weekly basis.

Funfetti Pancakes

 Jacob celebrated his 7th birthday this past weekend, and I can hardly believe it the time has gone by so fast.  It seems like just yesterday he was learning how to crawl.  Now, he just lost his first tooth – yikes!  We have a tradition in our house – the birthday person gets to choose what they want for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Jacob adores pancakes!  I think he would eat them everyday for breakfast if I would let him.  So naturally, that is what he wanted for breakfast.  I couldn’t just make him plain ordinary pancakes for his birthday – these needed to be special, and what is more special than sprinkles?  I used my go-to pancake recipe and added some sprinkles.  Then I topped it with some homemade whipped cream and obviously more sprinkles because sprinkles makes life happy!

 

Blueberry Muffins

 Muffins are by far my favorite breakfast food.  I always have at least 2 different kinds in the freezer.  They are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast item.  I usually eat when I get to my desk in the morning so the muffin has plenty of time to thaw during my commute.  I was in search of a new blueberry muffin recipe when I came across this version from Brown Eyed Baker.  The one thing that caught my eye with this [articular recipe was that it didn’t require using a mixer just arm power.  Don’t get me wrong I don’t think I could ever part with my Kitchen Aid mixer.  It’s sometimes nice to mix things up the old fashion way.  This recipe did not disappoint.  My freezer will never be empty of any muffin especially these! 

Apple Pie Biscuits

Even though temperature are still in the low 90’s here.  I can’t help but think about all things Fall.  I mean come on now, the first day of Autumn is about a week away.  I already have my eye on some amazing pumpkin recipes I want to try.  I thought I would start the season off by sharing this amazing recipe with you.  When I read about the King Arthur Baking Bootcamp Challenge on Joy the Bakers Blog I was super excited!  I mean how can you possibly go wrong with Apple Pie Biscuits?  Plus, I really haven’t been in the kitchen a lot lately since we have been doing some home projects (I will share some awesome updates we have been doing with you later).  This challenge was perfect for me since the recipe called for Self Rising flour.  I have only used self rising flour a few times.  Since I am not as familiar with self rising flour I figured this would be a great way to learn.  Let me say I was super impressed with the way the flour felt, almost silky in a way.  The biscuits were absolutely amazing!  They had the perfect balance of sweetness.  Now I am on the hunt with more recipes that use self rising flour.  If you have one you would like to share please send me an email to miranda@mirandaskitchenadventures.com and I may feature it in a future post!   To learn more about the contest head on over to Joy the Bakers Blog.  

Bacon Scallion Cheddar Scones

  Bacon-Scallion-Cheddar-Scones

 I’m baaaack!  After a very trying couple of months I am happy to be back!  Work and home life has gotten the best of me lately.  Thanks for hanging in there during my time away.  Now lets get down to business!  The first time I mad these scones I knew it would be a recipe I would make often.  How can you possibly go wrong with bacon and cheese.  Right!  One of the great things about this recipe is you can assemble most of it the night before {see my snip it below on how to do this}.  The leftovers reheat great in your toaster or regular oven, in fact I actually like them a little better the second day!
