Savory Custard with Bacon and Cheese

With the holidays approaching, maybe you’re looking for a simple but elegant brunch offering for your guests, or maybe just something a tad bit special for yourself. This savory custard should please about anyone – – I even like it and eggs are not my favorite!

Sunday Morning Bacon and Swiss Quiche

Prospects are grim for getting breakfast in this house, any day of the week. That’s the reality when the cook of the house is not a breakfast eater, made more difficult when the cook does not really care for the taste of eggs. My poor husband subsists on nuts, berries, and yogurt most of the… Continue reading Sunday Morning Bacon and Swiss Quiche

Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes (gluten-free and grain-free)

Recipe from Nourishing Days Mr. “He Cleans” requested pancakes for breakfast this weekend, and I was happy to give them a try. I haven’t made pancakes since we went gluten-free and I wasn’t too sure how they would turn out.  My experience with almond flour is that it holds up pretty good unless you get… Continue reading Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes (gluten-free and grain-free)

Eggs Caprese

Recipe from Fab Housewife Eggs with basil, mozzarella, and fresh tomatoes….I’m in! This classic recipe, from Fab Housewife, was perfect for our vacation. It met all my qualifications – which basically included being easy to make with little preparation, while allowing me to use these cute Le Creuset ramekins. The recipe was so pure and… Continue reading Eggs Caprese

Sausage Cheese Balls (gluten-free)

One of my favorite holiday food memories is from spending the night at my cousin LuAnn’s house every year.  Her mother, Norma, always had plenty of delicious, homemade treats in the house around Christmas, and we thought we were so clever sneaking into the kitchen in the middle of the night to gorge on fudge,… Continue reading Sausage Cheese Balls (gluten-free)

Baked Cheese Grits with Sausage

If it seems like we’re getting a little corny around here, it’s because we’re out here in the Southwest and corn is hard to avoid.  Corn tortillas, polenta, corn in the salsa, grilled corn – – all yummy, but more carbohydrates than we intended to consume.  Well, heck, we can abstain when we get back… Continue reading Baked Cheese Grits with Sausage

High-Altitude Muffin *FAIL*

Having lived most of my life at 1000 ft above sea level, or less, my first instinct when baking isn’t to consider the elevation of my oven.  It did occur to me, too late, when I peeked in the oven to find a pan overflowing with batter.  Oops!  This wasn’t a total fail since the… Continue reading High-Altitude Muffin *FAIL*

Bacon and Cheese Mini-Quiche Muffins

Sometimes you have a memory of a certain food, or a snippet of a song, or catch a familiar aroma passing by – something that you’d like to grab hold of and re-experience.  That sounds a little lofty as a lead-up to mini-quiche muffins, but when you are standing in 15 degree weather waiting for… Continue reading Bacon and Cheese Mini-Quiche Muffins

Chile Cheese Muffins

Adapted from Santa Fe Kitchens (The Museum of New Mexico Foundation) I made this recipe a few weeks ago as a casserole for a breakfast gathering, but thought it would also make good muffins.  I was right!    Each little muffin was a buttery, cheesy mouthful…not too egg-y…and the crust around the edges gives it more… Continue reading Chile Cheese Muffins
