Easy Easy Quiche!!

So this recipe really shouldn’t qualify as quiche since it only contains two eggs but its so tasty, I love it!! This recipe was given to my from my friend, and she got it from her aunt, so its been passed down the line which are the best kind of recipes! 

One unbaked pie shell

1/2 cup of mayo ( I like miracle whip)

1/2 cup of milk 

2 eggs 

1/2 cup of shredded cheese (cheddar works nice my mom likes swiss) 

1 tblspoon of cornstarch 

Here is where you customize it! I liked to add 3/4 cup of ham, cubed, some onions, mushrooms, broccli. Recipe can take even green peppers or any veggies you like. I dont use more than 2/3 cups of veggies combined. 

Mix wet ingredients, and gently stir in chunky things next. 

Pour into pie shell and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Until center comes out clean when poked with knife :)

Stuffed French Toast

This is a recipe I first had at a wedding brunch, and I begged for the recipe. I have since made it for a christmas breakfast at school and for a Christmas brunch I hosted at my house. It is so easy and I make it the night before and let it sit in the fridge and bake it the next morning.

Ingredients:

1 loaf of french bread
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp corn syrup
1/2 cup of butter
1 3/4 cups of milk
8 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
8 oz/ cream cheese

Step 1:
Make caramel sauce by melting butter and brown sugar over medium heat, add corn sryup, begin to boil, do not let it come to rolling boil, it will harden and turn into candy. Remove mixture from heat. Pour mixture into 9×13 pan that is greased. (I cover mine in foil)

Step 2:
Toast layer: Cut up french toast 3/4 inch thick. Lay bread into pan side by side. Spread cream cheese of top layer of bread then add another layer.

Step 3:
Mix eggs milk and vanilla in a bowl with a whisk. Pour over the bread. Place in oven at 350 for about 40-50 minutes.

When you serve it, serve caramel side up.

the last time I made this I ran out of milk and I used some rum chata and egg nog. What a rich flavor it gave!

You may serve this with syrup or whippped cream and fresh berries, although I never do~

Crepes between Friends

Whilst visiting my best friend Narragansett Rhode Island, I decided that in the morning we should try making crepes for breakfast. I’ve seen them make them on the today show so how hard could they be

Heres the recipe I used:

  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter

What I did was mix all of these items a blender, because you want the batter to be nice and thin and airy. Sometimes I use whole milk and sometimes I use skim, just depends on my mood but I really don’t ever notice a difference.

Pour a very small amount of batter just enough to coat the pan, usually two tablespoons on a pan that is heating at medium heat.  Pan is prepped with oil and or a bit of butter.

Cook until light brown, I like to flip several times because it helps get those beautiful air bubbles.  This recipe can make quite a few crepes, maybe enough to feed a family of four.

I add chopped strawberries and home made whipped cream.

My Favorite is Lemonade Crepes. Young girl I babysit taught me the recipe to lemonade crepes and they are a light delicioustreat. Juice one lemon, and add two tablespoons of sugar, take this mixture and spread it over a fresh tasty crepe, you wont regret it!

Apple Stuffed Cinnamon Buns

This idea came to me when I was shopping for Crescent Rolls for my apples in a blanket Recipe: Find here:

Apples in a Blanket

I saw the packaged cinnamon buns- and I thought WHY NOT? Isn’t that basically what I am doing anyways? Stuffing the rolls with apples and then rolling it cinnamon and sugar, why not buy that pre made?

So I bought the cinnamon buns. I thought how should I do this: so this is what I did.

Took the roll and cut it in half- with a very sharp knife. However I didn’t go all the way through the middle I left it like a sandwich rolls.

Stuffed it with a few apples from the apple pie filling in a can.

 

Closed them back up and baked them by following the package.

When they came out of the oven I frosted them with the frosting it came with. Delectable.

They were wondrous! I was so proud of myself for coming up with this. A great home made twist- on something already made for you. STUPID EASY.

Success!!!

Pumpkin Rice Krispie’s

So I found these somewhere; and of course now I can’t find the recipe. But I can remember- sorry I can’t give proper credit.

3 Tablespoons of butter

One bag of Mini Marshmallows plus one cup

1/4 of Pumpkin Puree

Dash of Nutmeg

Dash of All spice

1/4 Tsp of Cinnamon

6 cups of the snap crackle pop cereal ( Rice Krispie’s)

SO This was another treat I wanted to add to my fall party dessert lay out. I had most of the ingredients so its what I picked!

What you do is you melt the butter over the stove on low-medium. Add in the pumpkin as soon as its done, and throw in the spices. Add the entire bag of Mini Marshmallows and stir until those are melted. Take off heat. Then you have to wait 10 minutes to add in the extra cup of marshmallows. Once that cup is added WAIT longer. About half n hour. Then you can go ahead and add in the Kripies. They say that if you dont do this the treats will become soggy. So I didn’t mess around with it.

Pour into any size pan, depends on if you want tall treats or not I opted for the 9X13. Let it set for half n hour and then cut and serve! Simple! No bake! OHH YEAH

I didn’t try these because I am not a fan of rice krispie treats. weird I know. but I heard they were excellent!

 

Success!

At LAST- Paleo TO GO Breakfast

And it’s easy to make. SAY WHAT.

This recipe makes me happy. and I eat it like three times a day.

Wake up in the morning, grab ya coffee mug, and mash a banana in it. I use a fork. Then crack an egg open and throw it in, and mix it all together. I leave a little bit of chunky banana. Then you put in the microwave for three minutes. It’s going to look like its going to over flow but in my experience it doesn’t, it rises by minute two, and goes down gradually through minute three.

Others have added blueberry, or unsweetened coconut. But I just east it plain!

It nice and hot and almost feels like your eating oatmeal, or hot banana bread if you added walnuts.

Pumpkin Blankets

So If you remember , I made these before, and they were BOMB.

Apples in a Blanket

So simple so Easy, But as I said I wanted to try pumpkin.. so I saw something on pinterest that wasn’t an actual recipe that said mix pumpkin and cream cheese.

So I grabbed my four year old cousin and we began baking. I mixed One can of pumpkin, and 3/4 bar of cream cheese. I also had two cans of pillsbury rolls.

Right off the bat I could tell it was too much filling. Just like the apple ones, so you could really double the tubes of  crescent rolls and buy 4.

It also…didn’t taste good. So I had some brown sugar, some white sugar, some cinnamon, some nutmeg.. was not improving, then  I added more brown sugar. I realized, it was as good as it was going to get, began putting a spoonful on each roll, rolled them, then handed them to my cousin who rolled them in cinnamon and sugar. She was making them quick “for all her customers.”

I baked them and when they came out they looked tasty. Now, they were alright. And there were none left over after the party, but they just weren’t GREAT. Like the apples. I decided that next time skip the cream cheese. It would taste much better. My aunt said she would like them for breakfast. They were tasty but not pumpkiny tasty. So although they passed family inspection ( I was even asked for the recipe) By my standards it was a …

FAIL.

Breakfast..Sushi?

I saw this idea on Pinterest. (obv)

The name sounded complicated but the idea was quite simple. Banana with peanut butter spread all over it, dipped in cereal, cut in circle slices to resemble Sushi. Sounded good to me and I knew my kids would love it too.

So in attempt one morning to distract the middle child from the fact that her mother was leaving I told her I’d make her breakfast sushi. She said she didnt like Sushi and I told her to trust me, that she would love mine! In the recipe it said to use rice krispi’s. But we didnt have any of those so I crushed up some frosted flakes and those tasted marvelous. You could really use any kind of cereal. One day I even used shredded all bran, which tasted good (and is healthy).

Spreading the peanut butter can be messy, and so is dipping the cereal and I use a lot of dishes, so now I am kicking myself becuase the kids ask for it every morning for breakfast now.

An up close view of the finished product:

Two Ingredient Muffins-thats right I said two.

Okay, so when I read this I did not believe it. This cant be true. TWO ingredients.

Any cake Mix you want, Ive tried Spice Cake and Carrot Cake, and I think I liked the Carrot more.

Then you take 15 oz. which is the smaller can of pumpkin puree. Mix this and the cake mix together and pour into muffin tin.

I cook for about 18 minutes ( I think) Until the muffins look set.

They are so good, and nobody can believe that they are two ingredients, even after two days they keep their moist, moist texture. ohh and the kids LOVE THEM. We are them for breakfast and dinner!!!

 

Two thumbs up and a SUCCESS
