Nutella Banana Crepes 1 of 8"Any basic crepe recipe can be completely transformed by adding different things to it. They're as versatile as crescent rolls! Serve warm or at room temperature; flat, rolled, or folded; sprinkled with powdered sugar; or filled with jam, honey, ham, cheese, potatoes, mushrooms … or in our family's case, Nutella and bananas. With two little kids, is it any wonder that these are our favorite?"

Baked Chocolate Peanut Butter Donuts with Vanilla Peanut Butter Glaze 2 of 8"These donuts are baked, not fried, and can be ready in 15 minutes. Chocolate and peanut butter is a winning combination anytime, but especially as a breakfast treat. If you don't have a donut pan, you can make them as muffins instead!"

Scallion and Dill Eggs with Vanilla French Toast 3 of 8"Our family's favorite breakfast is creamy scallion and dill scrambled farm eggs, oven-roasted Silvertip Pork Producers bacon, and vanilla French toast topped with caramelized Bartlett pears, maple syrup, whipped cream, and toasted pecans."

Granola with Cranberries and Pistachios 4 of 8"My family and I try to eat a healthy breakfast daily. My girls and I love making homemade granola. It's easy to make a big batch and eat it with yogurt or snack on throughout the week."

Overnight French Toast 5 of 8"French toast is one of my all-time favorite breakfasts. I like thick, thin, cinnamon, stuffed ... you name it! If it's French-toasted, I generally love it. This recipe is quick, easy, and inexpensive to make, which are my top qualifiers for a good recipe."

Blender Buckwheat Oatmeal Waffles with Cinnamon Apples 6 of 8"This recipe is great for families (like mine) who have food intolerances, as they are dairy-, egg-, and gluten-free (if you use certified GF oats). The waffles are super easy to make (you make the batter in your blender) and a big hit with both my sons, ages 3 and 1. The cinnamon apples are great on waffles and also as a side dish with lunch or dinner."

Pumpkin Cornmeal Pancakes 7 of 8"Some years ago I came up with a recipe for pumpkin cornmeal pancakes, which is our hands-down family favorite. The spices lend a nostalgic reminder of the holidays, the pumpkin brings a rich moistness, and from the cornmeal, a surprising crunch. Topped with toasted walnuts and maple syrup (and almost always served with a side of thick-sliced cracked pepper bacon!), it's our perfect homemade family breakfast!"

Overnight Breakfast Casserole 8 of 8"This is a great throw-together recipe for when you have company over, since you make it the night before and only have to bake it in the morning! Or if you forget, you don't have to make it the night before, but the texture will be different (since the crackers haven't absorbed the liquid). This is even better reheated the next day ... that is, if you have leftovers!"
