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 Breakfast Biscuits

I made these the other morning and they were gobbled up in no time! I loved the texture... they reminded me of french toast in a way... but better! We ate a few plain and then ended up dipping them in maple syrup... I know, SUPER healthy!! Well, it was better than the Dunkin Donut run my husband wanted to make that morning:)

*1 roll Pillsbury Grande Biscuits (10 biscuits per roll- they usually come in a 4 pack)
*4-5 eggs- beat and add a touch of milk and pepper
*4-5 strips of extra crispy bacon- torn into little pieces
*1/2 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or colby/jack blend)

1. Spray Pam on muffin tin. Flatten each biscuit as much as you can and place into muffin tin, folding the sides up as far as they'll go. 

2. Distribute the cheese and bacon evenly in each of the 10 muffins.

3. Pour egg mixture on top filling each no more than 3/4 of the way up.

4. Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes. Check eggs with a toothpick to make sure they are cooked through. I cooked for about 15 minutes and then I turned the burner on for a minute to make sure tops were done. 

Serve hot and with syrup if you wish!! Enjoy!  Great with coffee and a side of fruit... you know, to make a well balanced meal!
flatten biscuits and place in tin, folding edges up the sides as far as they will go... Place bacon pieces and pinch of cheese in each

Add your egg mixture till they are 3/4 full (eggs, milk and seasonings)

Bake till egg is cooked through... use a tooth pick to check

Super good with syrup!
