Cinnamon Rolls Recipe-Confident in the Kitchen-Jean Miller

Cinnamon Rolls

My family loves cinnamon rolls and kept putting in the requests. “Could they be bigger?”, “Can you add more cinnamon?”, “Could they have more frosting?” There is no way to know how many times I modified this recipe before it got the stamp of perfection from my family. Now they just ask “Can you make more?” I like that kind of question.

Deviled Eggs Recipe-Confident in the Kitchen-Jean Miller

Deviled Eggs

Mark and I both grew up with a lot of deviled eggs. Years later, every time we went home for big family gatherings, it was a guarantee that there would be a couple of variations waiting at the buffet. Our favorite type is one with a bit of heat, a little crunch, and a touch of tang. Pieces of egg yolk should still be visible under the sprinkle of paprika. Texture and tang are essential for a memorable deviled egg.

Mozzarella Kumato Salad

This Mozzarella Kumato Salad is a delight. When Mark and I were in Sydney, Australia, in 2015, we decided to try the Dining Room, Park Hyatt, known for its waterfront view of the Sydney Opera House.

This is my home-style version, featuring a delightful, brown tomato called a kumato.

Pancakes Recipe-Confident in the Kitchen-Jean Miller


When I was a child, my mom made mountains of pancakes when my childhood best friend, Jennifer, spent the night. To this day, I love a stack swimming in syrup. In 2008, the passion for pancake perfection rekindled when Mark and I enjoyed unbelievably fluffy, tender pancakes in Breckenridge, Colorado. After the first few bites, I knew I had to rework my recipe. This is the new, improved version. In addition to syrup, I recommend copious amounts of butter. What better way to start the day?

Toasted Muesli Recipe-Confident in the Kitchen-Jean Miller

Toasted Muesli

Toasted Muesli (MUSE-lee) is an incredibly popular Australian breakfast staple. The first time I joined Mark in Sydney for a temporary relocation, we lived at the Westin for well over a month. Every morning the club lounge served a bountiful breakfast bar, but gradually we found ourselves drawn to this healthy choice. Served over yogurt, it is a perfect start to the day.
