Rippled Coffee Cake

Over the last month there are two things that I've been doing a lot of: baking and drinking coffee.  When Door County Coffee & Tea Co. reached out and asked if I would help promote their Coffee for a Year giveaway there was zero hesitation.  I was introduced to their product just about a year ago and I've been a huge fan ever since!

This is a sponsored post. I was provided samples of Door County Coffee's new Spring/Summer flavors, all opinions are my own.

One lucky winner will win a years supply of Door County Coffee shipped to them monthly, and 2 handcrafted Door County Coffee Stoneware mugs! And 4 second place winners will receive one months supply of Door County Coffee! I've got a few of those stoneware mugs and they are awesome.

All entries must be received by April 30th, winners announced via email May 4, 2020. Enter here: Full contest rules are available here.

And what goes better with coffee than coffee cake?  I chose this Rippled Coffee Cake recipe from Taste of Home because it started with a cake mix, which I always have on hand.  I added a bit of vanilla to the cake batter, and I also only made half the glaze.

I baked mine in a 13x9 glass pan, and it took about 35 minutes. Be sure that when you test it for doneness you're testing cake and not the brown sugar cinnamon layer.  I don't see this one lasting very long, it's absolutely delicious. Thank you so much to Jane L. for sharing her recipe!

I am loving this sweet and simple cake! Who could resist that cinnamon swirl?!
Coffee cake is always sooo good and I need to make it soon. Maybe I'll make some for myself for Mother's Day this year haha!
This sounds amazing! I need to try it.... I need to entertain so that I'm not tempted to eat the entire cake myself, lol!
A great way to wake up. Perfect with coffee or tea. I love having a coffee cake on the counter so the family can serve themselves.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Strawberry Pizzelles

Pizzelles are one of my favorite childhood cookies and I'm constantly looking for ways to put a new spin on them.  Since one of my favorite summer fruits is strawberries, I swapped out the vanilla in the original recipe with strawberry extract.  This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek !  I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own. I also added some red food coloring to give it a pink hue, but you can skip that if you like.  I use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter, it keeps all the pizzelles the same size, plus it's quicker than using two spoons.   They're delicious as is but you can take them over the top by fashioning them into a cylinder which we like to call fauxnoli.  You can pipe them full of whipped cream or buttercream.  If you want to prepare everything in advance, store the pizzelle in an airtight container, and the filling in a pastry or zip top bag in the f
