Random Breakfast Food, Random Post



The ever present bagel.

My love . Paired with my other lover. Old cheddar.



And again . Just because it ‘s so pretty .

Maybe I just love melted cheese. Probably, considering every food photo I see that involves melted cheese leaves me needing to make that recipe right now!

Cheese and bagel love aside , I also rekindled another love.


Cereal .

Oh lord. I know a lot of people have issues with cereal . Some people cannot stop at one bowl so they simply don’t buy it . Others are rigid about the nutritionals and will only eat a specific amount , in an attempt to ward off any attempts at cereal overdose.

I however do not have a cereal problem really, but for probably 10 years I haven’t eaten it or purchased it ( aside from granola used for yogurt or baking purposes ) purely because it doesn’t do anything for me , fuel wise. I feel exactly the same after eating a bowl as I did prior , only with a sloshy stomach because of the milk . Does not quell the hunger beast .

While the cereal lover was beautiful , I don’t think I’ll be partaking in the cereal daily . So my bagel and cheddar need not worry .


I ‘m not one to scoff at too many lovers so I thought it would be nice ( although horridly sunny at 9 am when these photos were taken )to bring in some banana blueberry muffins.



Horrible lighting and thus photos aside, these muffins were soo good and just what I wanted with a mug of green tea.

I used fresh blueberries I had in the fridge and adapted a recipe I found online . I ended up with this : ( well and yummy muffins)

Banana Blueberry Muffins

  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 
  • 1/4 cup wheat bran
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup Becel Light ( you could use Smart Balance or something similiar or actual butter )
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 ripe bananas 
  • 1/3 cup banana yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries

Cream together sugar , becel and maple syrup .Add in egg , mashed banana and vanilla and yogurt.

Mix together dry ingredients , and slowly add to wet. Stir in blueberries. Spoon into greased or papered muffins tins. Cook at 350 for 10-16 minutes or until tops are golden . Removed from pan immediately and set on wire rack to cool.


Now I want a muffin . And a cuddly dog who makes funny faces.

Questions  :

1/ How do you feel about cereal ?

2/ What’s your favorite breakfast food?


  1. Publix scones (they have some icing glaze on top and are the perfect dryness, yet not so dry you cant swallow. Special K bars (I know, mostly sugar and not filling at all), strong coffee, preferably with a packet of Splenda and dash of Coffee Creations (I think it's called) caramel latte creamer-milk and cream combo. Or I stop by Starbucks on the way to school and grab a small nonfat latte, extra espresso shot. Sometimes I get it iced, packet of splenda, sometime with a drizzle of caramel topping. Well this was longer than expected.

  2. ps- the muffins sound heavenly. Love some blueberry anything

  3. I keep checking back to see new pics and recipes. I hate going on random recipe sites when I dont know if the poster has good taste!
