I whip it up morning day and night for breakfast, lunch or the munchies. One of my favorite breakfast dishes that I throw down with in my cocina is a big ol plate of California Migas Scramble sprinkled with Real California Truffle Cheese.

Christmas Tree Cranberry Pecan Scones

Christmas Tree Cranberry Pecan Scones


What is your early morning treat of choice to leave for Santa? Are you team cookies or team scones? A few years ago my son and I made Christmas Tree Cranberry Pecan Scones during the holiday season. We fell in love with these scones, made with Real California Milk dairy – butter, buttermilk, heavy cream… yes, they are fluffy and absolutely perfect to serve for breakfast.

As we sat there eating our delicious Christmas Tree Cranberry Pecan Scones, my son asks if we could leave a batch out for Santa instead of our traditional cookie. I explain to him this is more of a breakfast treat, and he says to me “Perfect, Santa comes in the early morning hours to drop off my gifts he can have an early breakfast!”

From that point on we started leaving Santa a small plate of scones and a glass of milk. I make a batch on Christmas eve to leave a plate for the man in red and the rest for my family to enjoy Christmas morning. I feel like a good samaritan knowing I’m doing my part by using #RealCaliforniaMilk products – they are made with sustainably sourced milk from California dairy families, and when I see that seal I feel confident I’m giving Santa pure quality.

Happy Breakfast together + Holiday Season = Building Memories! #MorningsMeanMore

The Crispiest Potato Cakes

The Crispiest Potato Cakes


In a few days I’ll be celebrating Friendsgiving brunch with a group of my closest friends, then a handful of days later hosting a Thanksgiving breakfast. In other words I’ll be cooking up a storm in the coming days for Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving breakfast and dinner. I am always looking for ways to spread the love and make dishes last longer. Which bring me to The Crispiest Potato Cakes, my breakfast favorite using mashed potatoes.

The Crispiest Potato Cakes have a creamy mashed potato center. I make a big batch of mashed potatoes that can be used several times. Seasoning them to perfection with Real California Dairy – butter, buttermilk and cheddar cheese. I use #RealCaliforniaMilk products because they are made with sustainably sourced milk from California dairy families, and I know when I see that seal I am getting pure quality. These creamy mashed potatoes get a crispy hash brown crust on both sides and are fried to a crisp.

I can’t tell you how happy these potato cakes make my family and friends. They are perfect to serve at breakfast time if you want to bring the smiles on early in the day. They pair best with a fried egg, a little salad, and sour cream. Happy Breakfast together + Holiday Season = Building Memories! #MorningsMeanMore

Arroz Con Leche Brûlée

Arroz Con Leche Brûlée


I can’t tell you how long I’ve been dreaming of this recipe, Arroz Con Leche Brûlée. Several months ago I created it in my head, and even wrote it in my notes of things to do. I started making my vamped up extravagant version of arroz con leche and found it to be so creamy and decadent in the same vein as crème brûlée… Thats when I imagined my arroz con leche topped with a layer of hardened caramelized sugar and adorned with fresh fruit.

Cupid’s Arrow Breakfast Pizza

Cupid’s Arrow Breakfast Pizza


Dear Valentine,

I am so grateful for your existence, and feel super lucky to call you my partner.  I wanted to surprise you with a special breakfast, and I know that pizza is your favorite.  Since you are my warm and fuzzy I desired to do something sweet for you.  I ordered everything I needed from Northgate Market so I could give you my Cupid’s Arrow Breakfast Pizza. I made it with Mozzarella cheese, papas, roasted red peppers, and jalapeños. Each time you tear into this heart-shaped pizza pie remember how much I adore you.  Thank you for putting a smile on my face, and for being so supportive always.

xoxo – Presley’s Pantry


Ingredients for Cupid’s Arrow Breakfast Pizza:

  • a batch of pizza dough – Click here for recipe
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 4 cups Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/4 cup sliced pickled jalapeños
  • 1/4 cup roasted red bell pepper
  • 2  potatoes, cooked and cut into heart shapes and arrow
  • 4 eggs


Bring dough to room temp

Rub a baking sheet lightly with olive oil an hour and half before you’re ready to bake.  

Pull plastic wrapped dough out of the refrigerator to come to room temperature.

45 minutes before ready to put your pizza in the oven, place a pizza stone on rack 1/4 of the way up from bottom of oven.  Preheat oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.

Prepare the ingredients

Fry your potato hearts and arrow pieces. Set to the side.

Take one of your dough balls and place on a lightly floured surfaced and shape into a disk.  Then continue to pull out into the desired size of your pizza by draping it over the back of your hands, and continue to rotate dough with the back of your hands in a clockwise motion with the aid of your thumbs.

Sprinkle your lightly olive oiled baking sheet with a pinch of cornmeal then lay pizza dough directly on top to form shape.  Continue to go around the edges forming a slightly raised rim with the tips of your fingers by pinching and gathering the dough. Then shape into a heart.

Drizzle a 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil on the inside of the heart and then spread it around the inside with you fingers avoiding the rim.

Top with 1 cup mozzarella cheese,  a few jalapenos, red roasted bell pepper, and a few potato hearts. Break a raw egg in the middle and place pizza in oven for 11 minutes or until crust is golden!


Bake each pizza one at a time. Place your heart shaped  pizza on a plate and decorate with potato arrows, and serve with coffee,  fresh fruit, a little salad.

Tortillas Con Huevo Heavenly Breakfast

Tortillas Con Huevo Heavenly Breakfast


A few weeks ago I was making Tortillas Con Huevo and casually shared them on my Instagram Stories. As I was adding in the eggs to my already crispy tortilla pieces I remembered an incident that had happened many moons ago. My uncle’s friend had come over to our house in City Terrace and asked upon stepping into our casa “Are you guys cooking Tortillas Con Huevo?” He said it like he wasn’t sure if that’s what it’s called, almost with a puzzled look on his face. In that instant I realized this thrown together heavenly breakfast is nameless.

I’m regularly trying to find ways to improve my Potato Soy Chorizo Quiche. I know it doesn’t sound like a major task but getting the right ingredients to work for a delicious Mexican quiche is a goal I visit often. After many variations of this dish I found my key ingredient that makes all the difference in the quiche world. McCormick® Mayonesa with Lime Juice is a simple way to liven up your favorite dishes but is truly a game changer for quiche.
