Beautiful Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Wreath & The Inspiration Behind It All Steelmom

Beautiful Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Wreath & The Inspiration Behind It All Steelmom
While watching videos for the new Kraft Cooking Creme, at the Real Women of Philadelphia, I came across this recipe I found so intriguing. The RWoPer that inspired me to make this wreath is known as "Steelmom". For me, her nickname has always been perfect for her, since she is someone I admire for being a hard working mother inside and outside of the home. She must be made of steel to do all that she does, working full time as a sales representative for a steel mill, raising a family, and not to mention creating the most beautiful hand painted ornaments. Recently I have been on a mission to clean out my pantry and avoid buying new ingredients. Ingredients: 1 can of Pillsbury Crescent dough 8 count (we use reduced fat but regular is fine too) 5 large eggs (we use cholesterol fat free egg product) 1 cup of shredded Colby and monterey jack cheese (we use 2% reduced fat cheese) 8 slices of fully cooked bacon (I buy the bacon that is fully cooked from the store) This post is linked to:

Breakfast Pockets These are just awesome. They are one of my favorite make ahead breakfast ideas. Not only do they have an entire meal stuffed into a portable pouch but they also made me a bread maker. Not a “bread maker” but a maker of bread. A bread maker just makes me think of the appliance. Which I need to buy, by the way. I don’t do bread. I can turn any bread recipe, supposedly “easy” or not, into a recipe for cardboard. oven where they add some secret ingredient to my bread that makes it unfit for human consumption. Except for these make ahead breakfast pockets. So if you have sneaky, little, secret ingredient adding elves in your oven you too can make these! I promise I didn’t mean to make that sound like an infomercial sell. ”But wait, there’s more!” Ingredients Dough 1 1/2 tablespoon yeast 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees) 3/4 cup evaporated milk (110 degrees) 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1/4 cup sugar 1 large egg 1 teaspoon salt 3 1/2 cups flour Filling Instructions Dough: Filling: Assembling the pockets:

Traditions I love figuring out new traditions to make with my own little family. I definitely found one for General Conference on Sunday morning. My sis-in-law (SIL) Dana was telling me about how often she goes to my friend Hannah's blog and tries out her recipes. She was telling me about all the yummy ones she has tried, including the sticky bun breakfast ring and told me I had to try it. Let me just say WOW! My Aubri said while eating her sticky bun, "these are so yummy mom!" If you haven't already, you need to check out my beautiful and talented friend Hannah's blog! **If you aren't on Pinterest yet, please let me know and I'll send you an invite.

The Tidy Nest: Freezer Smoothies We have been enjoying smoothies for breakfast this summer. Smoothies are a quick way to eat a healthy breakfast using fresh ingredients. We still have a lot of blueberries in our freezer from our trip to the blueberry patch and quite a few strawberries from various summer sales. To make these smoothies go together even faster, I divide the fruit and yogurt into serving size baggies and store them in the freezer. The fruit is already washed and chopped and I freeze the yogurt in ice cube trays to divide it into the appropriate serving size. For a smoothie that serves two, I use about 1 1/2 cups fruit and 3-4 yogurt cubes (approx. one tablespoon each). I throw all of the packets into a large freezer bag to prevent freezer burn. Freezer smoothies make breakfast quick and easy! I'm linking to these great sites...
