Salmon and Dill Pancake Blinis | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

Popping in on this Minnesota March-y Monday (which basically means it’s anywhere between 30 and 50 degrees F, a confusing time for coats vs. jackets, and sometimes it’s sunny but mostly it’s cloudy and blah and we are ALL ready for spring, amiright) with a recipe for mini pancake blini with smoked salmon and dill and creme fraiche! Sounds so fancy, doesn’t it? But it’s not. I mean, we’re essentially topping a pancake with some semi-fancy-sounding stuff that you can find at Target and then serve it for a semi-fancy brunch or dinner party that’s actually not fancy because the best kinds of brunches and dinner parties involve friends that know you well enough to have them come over in sweatpants. And you answer the door sans makeup with an off-kilter top knot. That’s true friendship, and that’s exactly how I want to serve up these mini pancake blini.

Denver Omelette Crescent Bake | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

I love pancakes and waffles and muffins and all types of breakfast foods, but if I’m being totally honest, my breakfast life almost always consists of peanut or almond butter toast + fruit. Every now and then, however, I crave an omelette. Plus toast. I always need/want the carbs.

That’s one of the many reasons I love this Denver omelette crescent bake — it’s like a big-batch variation of a classic omelette made with cheese, ham, peppers and onions all on top of a soft, buttery crescent crust. It’s the best of all breakfast worlds.

Lemon Poppy Seed Biscuits | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

In true Girl Versus Dough fashion, I bring these lemon poppy seed biscuits to you only six to eight months after I first thought of them. They’ve been in my phone’s Notes and in my hopes and dreams every day since then, and now here they are, just for you, just in time for Christmas breakfasts and brunches and other holiday get-togethers where biscuits are always welcome.

To be honest, I was waiting so long because I wanted to make them with a very special flour, one that I’ve been wanting to bake with for, like, years now. So to say these biscuits have been a long time coming is a grand understatement. But they were so worth the wait.

Chai Spiced Cinnamon Roll Pull Apart Bread | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

Guys and gals, can you believe it? We are practically two weeks away from Christmas! I just got my decorations up yesterday (#moving #somanyboxes #sendhelpandcookies) but I’ve been in the festive spirit since Thanksgiving. Thank you Mariah Carey.

In case you’re like me and you still have plenty of Christmas shopping to do, may I suggest cuddling up this weekend to your couch, your favorite online store, a cup of coffee and a plate of this chai spiced cinnamon roll pull apart bread? Bonus points if you do it in flannel pajamas by the Christmas tree and/or a fire. It could not be more holiday-perfect.

Bacon Quiche Crescent Cups | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

Well, y’all, it’s here. The Week of Eating. Which for me is generally followed by The Month of Eating (Christmas Cookies and Hot Cocoa), concluded by The Big Christmas Feast and then repeated once more by The Big New Year’s Feast and then finally, finally, I am worn out. Mostly.

So we should do this thing right and kick things off with a hearty breakfast/brunch of bacon quiche crescent cups, amiright?

Caramel Apple Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Bread Pudding | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

It’s Monday, I’m home from a fun-filled weekend up north celebrating the husband’s 30th birthday that consisted of birthday cake and pie and tacos and wavy chips with French onion dip (KRYPTONITE) and yet I still have all the cravings and room in my belly for this caramel apple cinnamon roll breakfast bread pudding situation. It’s too good to pass it by for the sake of the diet.

One bite and you’d understand. So let’s grab our refilled mugs of coffee and hang out and dunk our forks/faces into this deliciousness.
