Caramelized Pineapple Pancakes with Butter Rum Syrup

Caramelized pineapple pancakes with butter rum syrup are my favorite tropical inspired breakfast recipe! Just sweet enough and completed with a drizzle of warm syrup, it’s a summer state of mind on a plate!

Caramelized Pineapple Pancakes with Butter Rum Syrup - A decadent and delicious brunch recipe on

Have you ever eaten at one of those cute little local restaurants while you’re on vacation where they warm the pancake syrup and you just think, “this are the best pancakes I’ve ever tasted!”? The menu usually has all sorts of fun combinations on basic pancakes and you tend to file it away as “vacation only” food until you start messing around one day and realize you can actually make this at home. On a weekend. In your pajamas. As fun as it is to dress up and go out, it’s just as nice to enjoy a special breakfast at home with your favorite coffee mug.  (more…)

Chocolate Cherry Smoothie Bowl

My latest easy breakfast love, a chocolate cherry smoothie bowl! I love how adding toppings is a little bit art project, a little bit playing with your food, and totally acceptable! 

For a fun, unique breakfast, try a chocolate cherry smoothie bowl! * Recipe on

Why has it taken so long for me to get into this smoothie bowl thing? I know you’ve seen them too, beautifully styled and posted on Instagram around breakfast time, and you’ve thought “That is so beautiful. Why am I still drinking my smoothies with a straw? What am I doing with my life?” Or something like that. No offense to smoothies with a straw, we love those too around here, but a smoothie bowl is like a weekend brunch smoothie, or a way to feel extra fancy at your desk since smoothies are technically acceptable to have at your desk at work in a cereal is not. I think. At least you’ll have a pretty picture for Instagram either way.  (more…)

Guava Cheese Braided Bread

A favorite from my bakery days, guava cheese braided bread is a sweet braided bread filled with sweet guava and cream cheese – a classic Cuban flavor combination!

Guava Cheese Braided Bread is a Cuban twist on a brunch favorite! This easy sweet bread makes a lovely breakfast, snack, dessert, or neighbor gift! Get the recipe and a video tutorial on

This recipe is going up on the blog by request of one of my former bakery clients. Whenever I would have the guava cheese braided breads on the menu, she’d have me set at least one aside for her to pick up. As much as I love blogging, I do miss the lovely conversations and relationships I built at the farmer’s market with my little pink tent. So of course, when {S} requested that I share the recipe, I decided it would make it on the blog, because why not? I hope you enjoy this glimpse into the Goodie Godmother’s “vault” recipes. (more…)

Cake Batter Cream Cheese

Whip up the perfect cake batter cream cheese spread with ingredients you likely already have on hand! This recipe tastes like cake batter, but uses NO artificial flavoring. 

Cake Batter Cream Cheese - easy to make, and this recipe uses NO artificial extracts for flavor, but still tastes just like cake batter! *

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of getting together with a few blog friends to socialize, talk shop for about 5 minutes, and eat. In attendance were Meaghan (Cook Craft Love), Tara (An Aiming High Wife), and Erin (No Bohn’s About It). Since the get together was split between mine and Tara’s houses, I offered to make brunch for everyone, with Meaghan’s help, because she was staying with me for the weekend.

She requested cooking lessons while here, so I taught her how to make macarons, and how to make homemade bagels. After seeing the super popular popsugar video about rainbow bagels, we decided we needed to make them, only not using the bagel shop’s recipe, because I still wanted them to taste like actual bagels and have the “right” texture. I think they turned out pretty good, and Meaghan and I walked around with fantastically dyed hands for a day or so, so that was fun. I don’t think I’ll make those again, regular bagels are just fine with me, but I will make this cake batter cream cheese again for sure.  (more…)
