Egg cups

The original recipe called them egg tarts, but I was calling them egg cups, so there. I’d intended to make a quiche, but thought individual protein pies would be a better idea. My only regret is not making twice as many! They were wildly popular with my brunch guests, and I wouldn’t have minded a […]

Coffee Cup Quiche

The second recipe my friend and I tested from this wonderful BuzzFeed list was this quiche. I’d say, in this case, I felt the term quiche was loosely defined, but hot damn did it taste incredible. The recipe we used was from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. There were a couple of personal taste, “choose your breakfast destiny” […]

My Microwave Empire

A friend of mine posted this to Facebook one day, with the tagline “I may never cook again.” After scanning through the list of microwavable meals for one, and since we had a dinner date coming up anyway, I (only 1/8 joking) suggested we try making some of these for a meal. We set out […]

Cornbread-stuffed Jalapeños

If this post sounds similar to the last one, it’s because it is! So that clears that up. A friend sent me this list from BuzzFeed on 31 Fearless Ways to Stuff a Jalapeño. This recipe was inspired by #6 on that list, and I have every intention of working my way through at least […]

Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread

I whipped up this batter for another purpose, post to follow next week, but there was more than enough leftover to make a full loaf of cornbread. Not much backstory to it except that I’ve been in a jalapeño kind of mood, so there’s that. (And they were on sale!) A quick internet search led […]

Quiche with Spinach and Gruyere

For a brunch on New Year’s Day, I decided to try my hand at quiche. That’s where this pie crust recipe came in handy. As did the scads of leftover food I had after my family visited for the holidays. I looked for a generic quiche recipe to follow, and found this one from Paula […]

Cheese Latkes

I’m literally eating these for breakfast as I type this. It’s not  a breakfast recipe, per se, but they are pancakes, and I wanted to give them a whirl. I’m drooling to think how great they’d taste with brisket. I came across this recipe on Kosherista while I was looking for new Passover recipes to […]

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone 🙂 I made some deviled eggs (I use yellow mustard, mayo, pepper, salt, and garlic powder in the yolk), and used teeny sliced carrots for the beak/nose, and some roasted chiles for the eyes. You could also use olives, but I didn’t have any! To get the eggs to stand upright, use […]

Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread

I found this recipe on Confections of a Foodie Bride and tucked it away for all of 24 hours before I made it. I was hosting some friends at my place one night, many of whom I thought might not have a chance to eat before coming over, so I wanted something more substantial than junk […]

Cheese Straws

As you might know, the Superbowl happened recently. Obviously I was going to make something sweet, but decided to also bring something different. To me, and probably to most of the Packers, you can’t go wrong if there’s cheddar cheese in a recipe; whether shredded or sprayed in. I thought cheese straws would be the […]
