Pear or Raspberry Infused White Balsamic Glazed Onions

I’ve posted photos of these onions on Instagram a few times and people seem to love them! If you’ve read other recipes and posts of mine, you’ll know that Alessi Pear Infused White Balsamic Vinegar is my all-time favorite! It’s an ingredient I picked up from cooking in my MIL’s kitchen when they had the lake house up in Michigan. I miss that house so much. She always had a bottle or two in the pantry. It’s like regular balsamic but sweeter and a bit milder, with a kiss of pear flavor. If Alessi ever stops making this, I’ll have to infuse my own white balsamic!

Update: I can’t find Pear Infused White Balsamic Vinegar so now Alessi Raspberry Blush White Balsamic Vinegar is my new favorite!

Breakfast Cookies

{Chocolate Chip & Cherry Brown-Butter Breakfast Cookies}

Actually, these cookies are good at any time of the day, but with added oats and breakfast cereal and, uh fruit, I think these make a marvelous breakfast cookie and they go great with dark roast coffee. 😉

Copycat Panera Four-Cheese Baked Egg Soufflés

Copycat Panera Four Cheese Soufflé

Did you see my post on Instagram with my version of copycat Panera Soufflés? I had a sort of breakfast tradition with my niece where I’d pop by and drop off breakfast for her (usually a Panera Soufflé) but during the early days/months of the pandemic, we could not find them in town. I decided I would make my own. They were so good and I was able to continue my tradition of having a super fast (socially distanced) breakfast break with my niece before work. It’s a new week so I made a new batch for tomorrow morning.
