Happy Sunday! My “Cookbook Corners” are usually reserved for Wednesdays, but today (with special thanks to Cedar Fort), I’m posting one today – and it’s a fabulous one…

Delicious Mornings Blaise the Baker Blog

“Delicious Mornings” By: Dina Foglio Crowell

Thanks to “Cedar Fort” publishing, I got an opportunity to review this delightful cookbook from Dina Foglio Crowell. Dina is the creator of the popular blog “Buttercream Bakehouse” – which can be viewed here…

This cookbook really features on delicious and delightful ways to start your morning – but I’ve found it to also be a cookbook filled with fun and delicious recipes for desserts and even side dishes too!

To start with – just flipping over it – you’ll see the photographs are spectacular! I absolutely find them stunning, and a welcome start to trying any of the recipes.

The book is divided up into the following categories (and I’ve highlighted a few of my favorite recipes along the way…)

“Blueberry Lemon Muffins” (page 2), “Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins” (page 5), “Caramel Apple Chunk Muffins” (page 10), “Banana Nut Muffins” (page 13)…

Come On Over Coffee Cakes (one of my favorite chapters – I LOVE a good coffee cake!)
“Classic Pineapple Upside-Down Cake” (page 17), “Raspberry White Chocolate Buckle” (page 19), “Classic Cinnamon Coffee Cake” (page 20), “Blueberry Buckle” (page 22)…

Bakery-Style Breads, Donuts, Cinnamon Rolls, and Pastries
“Chocolate Sprinkle Donuts” (page 26 – that are so incredible and easy you won’t believe it!), “Classic Bakery-Style Cinnamon Rolls” (page 28 – and are divine!), “Cinnamon Buttermilk Donuts” (page 33), “Jumbo Cherry Danishes” (page 36), “Baked Apple Monkey Bread” (page 37 – and genius!), “Chocolate Chip Scones” (page 38)…

“Crock-Pot Apple Butter” (page 52 – and the first recipe I tried – amazing! I enjoyed it on a bagel with cream cheese…so good! How good? I didn’t take a picture – I forgot! If you know me – THAT is a sign of a good recipe! Ha!) “Baked Italian-Style Cheesy Grits” (page 54 – who doesn’t love grits!?), “Spicy Oven-Fried Potatoes” (page 55), “Baked Harvest Apples” (page 57)…

Eggs

Pancakes
“Sprinkles Birthday Pancakes” (page 92 – and so fun!), “Pecan Pie Pancakes” (page 93 – YUM!), “Blueberry Pie Pancakes” (page 94), “Bananas Foster Pancakes” (page 96), “Red Velvet Pancakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting” (page 97 – and GENIUS!

I loved this cookbook and I really think that YOU will to! There’s so much to offer here – and so many delicious recipes for breakfast, snacking OR dessert! I have SO many recipes marked to try in this one – it may be easier to just work my way through each and every recipe!
