Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich Josh’s brother is visiting us from California and we are having a great time. Caleb sure loves having his uncle around and I love having another person to feed:) The other day the guys wanted a snack so I whipped up a bowl of guacamole and made homemade baked tortilla chips. The guys were still hungry so I offered to make grilled cheese sandwiches.

bacon and cheese egg mcmuffin cups These were simple and yummy. I don’t know about you, but one of my favourite meals of the day is breakfast. I could also eat eggs at any meal, and I know my husband could too (and bacon too, right James?). SCRUMPTIOUS SCONES / Bakers share tips for creating a no-fail batch Something about spring makes us want to set out fresh linens, bake up something dainty and sweet and sit down for afternoon tea. What better way to commemorate springtime celebrations like Mother's Day and wedding showers than with tea and stacks of delicate scones? Well-made scones are a wonderful thing, moist and tender, with buttery crumbs that cling to your chin. "They are fattening, indigestible and quite glorious," writes Jane Garmey in "Great British Cooking" (Random House, 1981). Like biscuits, their American counterpart, scones are as easy as pie for experienced cooks, but can be intimidating to everyone else. Even the scones offered at most Bay Area cafes often are dense, tough and dry, a waste of perfectly good flour and butter, not to mention calories.

Baked Egg Boat recipe Breakfast is my favorite meal. I like to drink iced coffee and watch the cream climb its way down the chunky ice cubes in a dazy before the caffeine hits. I like to order bacon with whatever I’m eating. Baked Eggs in Bread Bowls This was our breakfast Sunday morning. Aren’t they cute? They were very, very good. It’s the whole egg and the toast combo all together in one nice package. Mongolian Beef I LOVE P.F. Changs but it can be a little pricy for what you actually get. I have been making this recipe for YEARS now and I always get rave reviews. Most people who have it say they actually like it MORE than P.F. Changs.

Baked Potato Soup Everything you love about a baked potato loaded with cheddar, bacon and chives, in the form of a soup! I've had several requests to make-over this soup (You really like to challenge me, don't you!) I was a little stumped on how I was going to take something as carb rich as potatoes, with added fat like sour cream, cheese and bacon, light! Simple Garden Bruschetta I told you that there would be a mini run of tomato-laden recipes, didn’t I? How can I resist with all these great summer veggies (or fruits, if we want to get technical about the tomato)? I’ve made a few bruschetta recipes here for the blog. I think bruschetta is one of those foods that you can never go wrong with. Hot or cold, it’s great for its versatility in flavor combinations and in presentation.

Mac and Cheese Cups Share this image Share It Pin It When I first graduated from college, and was living in a dreary little apartment, mac and cheese was one of my few specialties. Granted it was straight from a box, but it was one of those meals that made me feel like I was home. I shared a gussied up truffle version a couple of years back (here), and since the Academy Awards are just days away, I thought I'd make it more party-friendly. Snickerdoodle Muffins Snickerdoodle Muffins I have been obsessed with Pinterest lately! Pinning this and that all while trying not to drool all over my computer. While I like pinning lots of different things, as you can imagine, I love pinning recipes. A picture of snickerdoodle muffins kept popping up all over my Pinterest page just begging me to make them. Could it be, one of my favorite cookies in a breakfast treat?

Fry Bread Tacos: Eating America Navajo fry bread tacos are typically made by topping fry bread with ground beef, shredded lettuce and cheddar cheese. In this recipe I’ve topped fry bread with Sonoran-style shredded beef, shredded cabbage, cheddar cheese and a simple tomato salsa, which is a little atypical but all components are prepared traditionally (Sonora is a northwestern state in Mexico and shares its border with Arizona and New Mexico, parts of which belong to the Navajo Nation). I’ve adapted the recipe I found in the book, Foods of the Americas: Native Recipes and Traditions. Check it out if you’re looking for some great recipes and a very interesting read. Fry Bread

Yammies Noshery: Broccoli Cheese Soup: Panera Bread Copycat Recipe - StumbleUpon On Wednesday my sister and I volunteered to make the soup supper to go with the Advent service at church. Before you go thinking I'm some kind of charitable, goodhearted soul, I must tell you that the only reason that I do it is because I LOVE COOKING. In case you hadn't figured that out yet. Okay, so I was like, "Whadaya think, Nemo? Will two huge pots of soup, a crockpot full of barbequed meatballs, five trillion chicken salad sandwiches, fifty thousand and two loaves of bread, and a couple bazillion desserts cover it?"
