Easy Egg & Spinach Breakfast Wrap

Easy Egg & Spinach Breakfast Wrap

My mom gave me the idea for this yummy little breakfast or brunch wrap.  I just added the spinach.  You could easily change this up with some red pepper or spice it up with some Sriracha hot sauce or red pepper flakes.  I originally thought I would drizzle a little balsamic vinegar dressing or italian […]

Red Pepper, Ham & Potato Frittata

Red Pepper, Ham & Potato Frittata

I had a helper today in the kitchen.  Actually, I usually have one or both in the kitchen when I’m cooking.  I think it’s really good for them to be right up there with me when I’m cooking.  We talk about food, how things go together, and safety.  Lately, Arabella is learning what math is, […]

Breakfast Spaghetti for Dinner

Breakfast Spaghetti for Dinner

This is something my mom would make when I was a little girl.  I don’t remember having it often, so it seemed like a special occasion when we did.  It’s so easy and quick that you could make it all the time – for breakfast or for dinner.  It’s a great for using up leftover […]

Quick Breakfast Potatoes

Quick Breakfast Potatoes

Making your own breakfast potatoes is so much cheaper than buying the frozen ones.  John and I have been making our own for a while now, but this method shortened the time involved.  My dad taught me this time-saving trick he learned from one of his fishing buddies.  Once a year, my dad and uncle […]

Ham & Gouda Brunch Casserole

Ham & Gouda Brunch Casserole

With all the snow yesterday, I wanted to make something for lunch that was warm and filling for my snow adventurers.  John was shoveling the driveway while Arabella was playing with her new bucket and shovel – which are not just for the sandbox or beach, but great in the snow!  This whole recipe will […]

Makeshift Orange Cranberry Scones

Makeshift Orange Cranberry Scones

This is a really easy breakfast biscuit to throw together for a leisurely morning with your family.  I made these on Thanksgiving morning while we watched the parade together.  They disappeared too quickly to make it into a post, so I made them this past Sunday morning while we watched the snow coming down outside. […]

Leftover Turkey Hash with Kale

Leftover Turkey Hash with Kale

I don’t know if I’ve ever talked about how much I love kale.  It’s my new favorite veg.  I’m surprised I haven’t actually done a post on it.  I love it as a salad, a sautéed side, in pastas and on pizzas.  This was something I dreamed up before we had even cooked our turkey, […]

Leftover Stuffing Bites

Leftover Stuffing Bites

This stuffing leftover recipe is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  They also freeze well too.  Just pull a few out of the freezer and reheat.  So easy and filling!  I used my Italian Thanksgiving Stuffing with italian sausage and artichokes. Start by spraying a muffin pan with nonstick spray.  Then fill the tin with […]

Sweet Potato Pecan Waffles – A Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipe

Sweet Potato Pecan Waffles – A Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipe

This recipe was kind of an accident, which is usually what makes the best recipes.  The dilemma came from promising waffles to Arabella the night before without checking to see if we had all the ingredients.  When I got up in the morning to make them, there was only 2 eggs in the fridge, and […]

Father’s Day Makeshift Breakfast – Southwest Egg Casserole

Father’s Day Makeshift Breakfast – Southwest Egg Casserole

For Father’s Day this year, I didn’t have anything planned except a sweet card from Arabella with a filled out questionnaire all about her daddy.  I woke up with Camden…early.  Amazingly enough Arabella didn’t wake up with us, so I got the idea to make this casserole.  I threw little man in the high chair […]
