Fry-Tata Fritatta

Fry-Tata Fritata
 I love these kinds of cool recipes! It's a new spin on a classic Fritatta...which is basically a huge egg omelette. But this recipe takes it a step further by adding crinkle cut fries on top and letting it finish cooking in the oven. It was delicious...and fun to make and serve. Creating the starburst design on top with the fries was very therapeutic...maybe it's just me, but I enjoyed that step. Here's how I this is made...

3 Ingredient Oatmeal Cookies

3 Ingredient Oatmeal Cookies

This is the kind of recipe that keeps me hooked on recipes because it's such a gem! I love finding these simple tasty recipes! These cookies are perfect, quick, easy, delicious, healthy and guilt free! Not to mention that they are soft, bite sized little cuties...Only about an inch and a half in diameter! So fun to just pop into your mouth! Goes so well with a glass of cold milk or a cup of hot coffee/tea.

Portobello Stuffed with Creamy Scrambled Eggs

Portobello Stuffed with Creamy Scrambled Eggs

I love it when I can make breakfast that feeds 6 people, all at the same time! Then everyone gets to eat a hot breakfast all together, including me! This is also a 'make ahead' meal that comes together quickly once the mushrooms are cooked!

Egg in a Hole!

Egg in a Hole!

This is such a fun way to serve eggs and toast! And I love the fact that the eggs and toast are made at the same time in the same frying pan! So much easier that way! My family got a kick out of this egg dish! I've made it often. I like to make this when we're having breakfast for dinner!

Simple and Crisp Trail Mix

Simple and Crisp Trail Mix

I love snacking on food that not only tastes good but is good for me too! It makes me feel good about what I'm eating while it cures my need to munch! Sometimes my snack ends up being a quick meal when I'm in a for breakfast!

Having an easy homemade trail mix is so much better than store bought because it's made with only the things I want! Some store bought trial mixes contain items that don't appeal to me and that aren't really healthy like pretzels, or salty peanuts! And for some reason store bought trial mixes usually have stale, hard, raisins in them...not appealing at all!

Eggs in Clouds

Eggs in Clouds
This was a very interesting recipe from the the the taste and texture! I had some concerns about if this recipe would work because I've come across many Internet recipes these days, that just look good in photos and are very popular on certain websites, but are totally fake and could never work in the real world! They just look cute on 'Pin' boards, if you know what I mean! This recipe had its share of problems from start to finish but it did taste very good! So all was not lost!

Here is how it went...

French Toast Muffins!

French Toast Muffins
I love French toast! I've had it stuffed with bananas ** see here** or blueberries **see here**... topped with different fruits, baked into a casserole, made into a bagel! You name it, I've tried it! So why not try a muffin version? I saw this recipe on Pinterest and knew it was destined to end up in my belly! And as soon as I snapped the above photo, that's where all 3 went!
The French Toast Muffin recipe was posted on this blog called
It was a very quick and easy muffin recipe! I had 12 of these whipped up in less than 30 minutes from start to finish!
Check out that blog and give these muffins a try!

Panakuchen ~ German Apple Pancakes!

Panakuchen ~ German Apple Pancakes
If this is the kind of breakfast they serve in Germany then I would be a VERY happy tourist! This was so light and fluffy! It puffed up so high while it was baking! And it's made with such simple ingredients! Not too much butter or sugar either! This reminded me of a combination of a filled crepe and stuffed french toast!

Of course I couldn't leave well enough alone so I had to tweak it slightly! I used bananas instead of apples and I added 1 tbls. of sugar to the batter of each pancake! And I used 1% low fat milk. I ate one whole 9 inch pancake myself...and I wasn't even full!!! So I would say this recipe only feeds two people!

I'll be making this again this weekend...and I'll be experimenting with different fruits! Of course I'll try it with apple next time, but maybe also blueberries!

1 apple
2 Tablespoons butter
4 eggs
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Go to the link below to see how this easy and delicious pancake is made!

Banana Rum Fritters

Banana Rum Fritters
I love fritters of all kinds! Sweet or savory!  I've tried onion fritters, corn fritters, and apple fritters, along with these banana rum fritters! Fruit fritters are even better when you pair them with ice cream! But adding rum just steps it up a notch! And don't worry, you can feed these to children because the alcohol burns off during the frying process.

Eggs in Heaven

Eggs in Heaven

This is a recipe I created while trying to find new ways to prepare eggs! In my house we like to have breakfast for dinner once a week. It's fast, cheap and everyone likes eggs, so there's no whining!

Egg Boats

Egg Boats
This is a great way to make egg sandwiches for a crowd! All you have to do is carve out a wedge in each hero roll and mix the egg, cheese, bacon, green onion, light cream, salt and pepper together in a bowl. Then just pour equal amounts of the egg mixture into each boat (hero roll) and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. I've been making this often since finding this recipe! So easy and delicious!

Apple Pancake Rings and Mini Pancake Stacks

Apple Pancake Rings
This is another recipe that I found on Pinterest! I thought it looked like a great idea for a breakfast recipe! It tasted very good but it was a pain to make! I tried to make it as easy as possible by using my 'go to' pancake batter recipe. But there were other problems that I did not for see!

Go Bold with Butter!

This month in the Allstar Brand Ambassador Program we're promoting the 'Go Bold with Butter'  campaign to support the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board in partnership with America’s Dairy Farmers! Check out their page for delicious recipes! I tried their 'French Toast with Honey Butter' recipe and it was HEAVENLY!!! The best french toast I ever had! And I just wanted to eat the honey butter by the spoonful! The honey butter would also be yummy on so many other foods...I want to try it on baked sweet potatoes next time! This is a great recipe to serve if you want to impress your guests! It tastes very fancy, but it is so easy to make! Here's my photo of the finished dish...
French Toast with Honey Butter
*Click Here for 'French Toast with Honey Butter' Recipe*
 The recipe makes about 12-16 pieces, so cut the recipe down if you want to make less!
I ate 4 pieces...YUM!!!
 I've loved butter as far back as I can remember! As a child, (3-4 years old) I can remember chomping away on sticks of butter! I would always get about 2 mouthfuls before my Mom would notice and take it away! Around that same time I also remember rubbing butter on my nails to make them! I guess I had a butter fetish! These days I have to be more careful about my butter consumption...everything in moderation! But it's always butter for me...never margarine!

Unique Custard Filled Dutch Baby!

This is a unique Dutch Baby recipe because of the custard that forms in the center of this cake while it bakes! I found this recipe on 'The Recipe Diva' cooking website. Posted by a member named Sweet Potato. I compared it to other Dutch Babies recipes. This recipe is the only one I found that had a custard center! It was delicious! It's suppose to serve 4 but I almost ate the entire thing myself!

Heart Shaped Hard Boiled Eggs!

When I saw this idea I just had to give it a try!
 I just thought it was so cute! So I tried this today!
My teen daughter LOVED it! I guess I'm a cool Mom now! But that won't last long!
I found the egg idea on this blog link...**Heart Eggs**

Here's the photos of my egg!
Heart Shaped Hard Boiled Eggs
This is how it looks when the warm peeled egg is being molded into the heart shape! Only takes about 10 minutes! I covered the cardboard with plastic wrap to make sure the egg didn't stick to it!
