Why this blog??

Why this blog?? I often find myself stressing over what to make for my family for dinner. We live a busy life and some meals need time to prep, cook and let's not forget shopping for everything you need. I love cookbooks and websites, but there are so many recipe's at times it is overwhelming. The recipe's I will be posting are things I actually made. I will tell you if they are easy or more time consuming. I will also tell you if they are good. Most of these are recipe's I have made for years and continue to make because they are easy or quick and my family loves them and i know yours will too! I will also try to at least once in a whlie try a new recipe I've found on line or in a book and honestly rate it. I always encourage others to send me their favorite recipe's as well! I am a mom... not a chef. But I am a mom who enjoys cooking for her family and making a somewhat healthy meal (some days more healthy than others:) ) In each recipe I will share how I recommend serving it, any substitutions I can think of that are also good, or ways to prepare ahead of time to make the cooking part seem quicker! I am not a photographer, as you can see... most of these pictures are taken from my phone camera, so may not be the best! I love to hear from others who have made these recipes and what they have done to change the recipe... please post comments! Thank you! To "like" me on facebook, go to this link...

Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuits

This isn't really a recipe, just a simple, easy breakfast idea. In my house, we like eggs different ways. I like mine over medium and the kids like theirs scrambled and the hubby likes his scrambled well. I found that using a cupcake pan to make the eggs in works really well. First of all, they come out the size of your biscuit and second I can do some eggs scrambled and some over medium! (Just make sure you use cooking spray or butter to grease your pan well first or clean up will NOT be fun!)

*Pillsbury Grand Buttermilk Biscuits
*A little milk
*Bacon (Made in skillet, microwave or oven- done to your liking... extra crispy for my household!)

*Make biscuits as per directions on can.

*Make bacon

*Eggs- for over easy (medium or hard), just crack egg into a cupcake pan. For scrambled- I scramble eggs, milk and seasoning in a bowl and fill cupcake pan till 3/4 full. Bake until done at 350. Flip half way. Cooking times will very depending on how done you like your eggs. Typically around 10 minutes.

*When biscuits are done, cut open and place cheese slice on bottom half. Top with egg and bacon. Place top half of biscuit on top and enjoy!

Optional- Top your breakfast sandwich with avocado, fresh sliced tomato or even some sauteed spinach!

after 3 minutes of cooking. I typically flip after 6 minutes.
