jill pickle:  Today, to celebrate Father’s Day and to surprise Bill/Dad, I decided to make a breakfast buffet complete with homemade Maple-Nut Granola, Quiche Lorraine and Maple Oat-Pecan Scones.  As with all things I plan, it took longer to make than I had anticipated, (plus another trip to the store by the receiver of this breakfast buffet), but it was worth it!  The granola is super easy and you can add any nut you like!  The quiche was really good with bacon in it!!  I used sharp cheddar cheese instead of the swiss.  The scones recipe made a lot!  They were very tender and flaky and good with the maple glaze and a sprinkling of pecans on top.  All-in-all, it was a success but next time it might be better to make some of these dishes ahead of time!  We’ll see…….




  1. What a great breakfast! The first course was some yummy granola (with lots left over for later). While I enjoyed the granola, Jill was whipping up the quiche and scones. Both were excellent! I can’t wait to have some more breakfast later!

  2. Oh man! Looks really good! I think I’ve made that granola recipe before and liked it a lot. Also, you can’t go wrong with Betty Crocker or the Barefoot Contessa. The glaze on the scones looks delicious! And the quiche looks great too!
