Baked French Toast

frenchtoast 018

This is one of the best baked French toast recipes I've ever made according to Ben and I even used Soy Milk to replace all the diary in it. I'm not sure if that is the reason why it tasted so good? I couldn't even tell a difference in the milk. The French Toast has a cinnamon sugar struesel  topping on it and I topped that off with some fresh black berries. Mmmmm I'm going to be using this recipe as my go to recipe for French toast. I haven't made French toast on a skillet in a long time, I … [Read more...]

Taco Bell’s Waffle Taco

Waffle Taco

  Have any of you tried the new waffle taco at Taco Bell yet? Taco Bell is about a 2 minute walk away from where I work at and sometimes I go there for lunch but now they have breakfast too. I know Taco Bell's gets a bad rap because supposedly after you eat something from there it doesn't last in your system long, too put it nicely. I don't really care about any of that. :) I had finished my waffle taco with delight that came with a hash brown and was pretty full. When I got done … [Read more...]

Trisha Yearwood’s Country Quiche

Country Quiche

Funny story. As most of you know who visit my blog regularly I love watching Food Network especially on Saturday and Sunday mornings when they show new shows. My website has a couple of Trisha Yearwood recipes like for instance her Peanut Butter Balls, Chicken Tortilla Casserole, and Chicken Tortilla soup. I just happened to be on my google analytics page when Food Network was showing a re-run of her show called Z-Girls and she makes the Chicken Tortilla casserole. There were quite a number of … [Read more...]

Berry Quinoa Muffins

quinoamuffins 017

I made these Quinoa muffins for breakfast this week. I've been getting pretty sick of having greek yogurt in the morning for breakfast and have been wanting something different. Something baked and healthy like these quinoa muffins. They're filling and low in sodium which I've been trying to watch lately. I've been counting my calories and have noticed I've been eating way too much sodium lately. It sucks cause salt is in everything. ..... Next time you make muffins, try adding some cooked … [Read more...]

How to Cook Quinoa

quinoa

Quinoa... seems to be all the rage lately next to cauliflower pizza crust.  Quinoa is very easy to cook too. All you do is bring 2 cups of water to a boil and once the water is at a hard boil add in 1 cup of a un-cooked quinoa. Turn the burner down to a low simmer and let that cook for 15 minutes. Take the quinoa off the burner and cover with a pan and let that steam for a bit. One time I kept the burner on high and left the room for a bit, and ended up with burnt quinoa. It wasn't good eats. … [Read more...]

Baked Eggs in Avocado

eggandavocado 003

This may sound kind of gross to people, who have never had a warm avocado. I first tried warm avocados when I made some kind of roll-ups and it was good. Do not let the size of the avocado seed fool you. It is not big enough to fit the egg in there. You have to scoop out some of the avocado in order for it to fit. I ended up having an egg white mess all over my tin-foil. A good thing I made these over tin foil right? Easy clean up. This is with almost half of the egg whites gone. Don't … [Read more...]

Baked Apple French Toast

I can't believe in 3 weeks it will be Thanksgiving already! I'm really looking forward to my 4 day vacation too. This year, I am interested in smoking a turkey. We usually brine our turkey and then roast it in the oven. Not this year! I might even wrap the whole turkey in bacon, because I'm that crazy. If you have a bunch of guests coming over for Thanksgiving and you need something to serve for breakfast try this french toast. Everybody has bread around that time for stuffing so why not? I … [Read more...]

Jumbo Blueberry Muffins

I was supposed to start work this week, but on Tuesday last week they called me and asked if I could start the 15th instead. Bummer, I was looking forward to getting back to civilization today. It has been a nice summer so far, I've had pretty much half of it off. Went to the lake for the 4th of July. Didn't really see much fireworks. The view was pretty though. I've been trying to learn what the difference is between a muffin and a cupcake. I heard that if you lick the frosting off … [Read more...]
