Start your morning off with some excitement! This is a wonderful recipe to make for a brunch, luncheon or even a mid-night snack! It is pure heaven!

 

Ingredients

2 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup butter, at room temperature

¾ cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ tablespoon grated lemon rind

2 cups fresh blueberries

1 cup confectioners sugar

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Directions

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter with the granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, milk and vanilla. Fold in the flour mixture, mixing well until evenly blended to a batter. Mix in the lemon rind. Spread half the batter into a greased 13x9x2 inch-baking dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the berries. Top with the remaining batter and sprinkle with the remaining berries. Bake until golden brown, 35-45 minutes.

Mix the confectioners sugar gradually into the lemon juice to make a smooth glaze. Drizzle the glaze over the warm coffee cake and allow it to set before serving, still warm or room temperature.

Breakfast for a Cajun Princess! Thank’s to T’Jim’s!

While on our extraordinary journey through Louisiana; one of our beloved stops was visiting with all the guys from T-Jim’s Grocery and Market. When visiting our family in Marksville, LA; T-Jim’s market was a must stop every year to stock up on our Cajun groceries  All I can say is how delightful these folks are. We had such a superlative time getting to know all these beautiful people. They were just plain and simply the “Cats Pajamas”. They were so welcoming and fed us some of the best groceries we have ever flopped a lip over. We ate everything from Pain D’Toilettes (Pork Patties) to Bunny Bread sopped in cane syrup.  James (T-Jim) Moreau established the business in 1964. He and his son Jacques work their fingers to the bone. They are non-stop making the finest boudin, cracklins, fresh sausage, hogshead cheese, stuffed gogs to name a few.    

We really can’t say enough about our visit with them. We can’t wait until our video’s get edited and you get to experience all the fun we did. It was absolutely amazing!!

Amy and I bought so many great groceries from T-Jim’s, but one item in particular was just so “Get in My Belly Good”. That was the; Pain D’Toilettes (Pork Patties) which is seasoned fresh bulk sausage patties wrapped in fresh pork webbings. I am here to tell you it makes the finest gravy ever. I cooked mine this morning and severed them over our fabulous grits. It was just such a first-class breakfast. I cooked fried eggs with of course Louisiana Hot Sauce and little spring biscuits with butter and homemade cane syrup that we also purchased from T-Jim’s. It was a breakfast fit for a Cajun Princess!

What’s for Breakfast? Creamed Spinach and Sausage Quiche

I had a bunch of spinach that needed to be cooked so I came up with this recipe.  Andy and I loved it.  It was so creamy and yummy.

Salt and pepper to taste

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

1 pound ground sausage, drained

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese

3 Eggs

¾ cup heavy cream

Deep dish pie crust

Breakfast at Serda’s Coffee Company

This is a locally owned coffee shop in down town Mobile. It was a small quaint venue. They served breakfast, wraps, soups, Panini, fresh baked pastries, smoothies as well as gourmet Italian Gelato. There were lots of business folk making a beeline for their morning cup of Joe and a small bite to eat. Amy and I had a cup of dark roasted coffee that had a bold robust flavor; just what we needed to get our day started. I started my day off with a delightful ham, egg and cheese bagel and Amy had a blueberry scone. We were impressed that for every bag of coffee purchased they will donate $4.00 to the Dog River Clean Water Revival, to decrease the amount of litter. They also offered a recycling center inside the coffee house. We would have to say this was a primo place for a great cup of coffee and for the first meal of the day!
