Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day! It can be sweet or savory.

It can include dishes that resemble dessert, yet are a perfectly acceptable way to start the day. Like these Blueberry Cream Cheese Muffins with a Chocolate Crumble or this Caramel Apple Bread Pudding.

Sweet treats for breakfast are one of my guilty pleasures. And these Strawberry Pancakes with Cream Cheese Syrup are at the top of my guilty pleasure list!

Cream Cheese Syrup, yes that is an actual thing. And if not, I just made it happen!  You’re welcome! 😉

I’ve been making these homemade pancakes for years and I guarantee they’ll be the best, most fluffy pancakes you’ve ever had. You can even substitute other ingredients for the strawberries, such as blueberries, chocolate chips or sliced bananas.

Adding the cream cheese syrup is totally optionally. But I would be doing you a disservice if I didn’t highly encourage you to make the cream cheese syrup!

If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, there’s a great chance you’ve heard me talk about, take pictures at or check in to Queenstown Public House. It’s my “Cheers” if you will. My neighborhood bar where “everybody knows my name.” But literally, I’ve been asked if I work there because people see me there so often!

It’s a gem and I’m a creature of habit. What can I say? I find something I love, I stick with it.

One of the things that keeps me coming back time and time again is their Prosecco Mint Sangria. It’s amazing.  So amazing that I decided to re-create it at home last weekend and share my version with you all!

Lemon, Strawberry, Muffins, Recipe, Breakfast, Brunch, Food, Fruit

Before leaving on my Summer Adventure in May, my wonderful Mom purchased me a stoneware muffin pan at a Pampered Chef party she attended in Oklahoma.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to use my new amazing kitchen gadget before I had to pack it into storage for the summer. I knew when I finally got settled in my new home in San Diego I wanted to bust that baby out and put it to work.

I decided to combine two of my favorite sweet and tart flavors into a muffin and thus the Lemon Berry Muffin was born. I ate a couple myself and delivered the rest to my dear friends in San Diego who let me borrow their hammer drill three times to get shelves, TV’s and art work on the walls (which are mostly composed of cement and metal studs) in my new place!

The great thing about the stoneware is that the muffins cook evenly from top to bottom and slide out easily with no muffin liners needed.
