With Easter this weekend, as well as the beginning of Passover, it’s prime time for brunch.

For me, brunch is not complete without at least one egg dish gracing your table.

When you’ve got company over, making eggs to order is not the way to go. Who wants to make 15 omelets or eggs over easy? Heck no!

Luckily, there’s make-ahead egg dishes that get the job done, and are kid friendly to boot. Kids seem to like little, individual servings of things. To get the little ones interested, make quiches in muffin tins. They’re all ready to go in single servings, and voila! Watch them disappear off their serving plate. Read More »

Everyday Granola

Granola is a staple food in our house. The warm spices, crunchy nuts and oats and sweet, chewy dried fruits greatly improve plain ol’ vanilla yogurt, if you ask me. My husband prefers it simply with milk. It also makes a great grab-and-go snack.

Nothing not to love about granola. Except for one thing: The price of the store-bought varieties. You can pay anywhere from $4.00 to upwards of $10 for a box that will barely last a week’s worth of breakfasts. Oh, the horror.

What to do? Make your own. When I first learned how to make homemade granola, I was a little embarrassed that I’d even been buying it at all because it’s so simple. It’s also a lot more fun, because you can add your favorite spices, dried fruits and nuts, and adjust the sweetness and crunchiness to your liking. Read More »

You know you’re onto something when your typically smart-ass brother walks in the door and says, “What smells good?”

I wish I could tell you how they smelled…but I can’t smell anything.  My senses are disabled.   I’m sick.   With what, I don’t know.  But when I’m sick, I cook…for other people.  I can’t taste a darn thing either.

And yes, I named these.  Can you tell? Read More »

Quiche is the perfect weekend meal.  Really, no more of this “real men don’t eat quiche” crap.  If you’re a real man, you’ll eat whatever the heck you want.
