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:

Homemade Flour Tortillas Recipe Homemade Flour Tortillas Homemade Flour Tortillas are easy to make at home and taste much better than store bought tortillas. Is there anything better than a fresh, hot flour tortilla? Well, maybe a freshly baked cookie, but tortillas are a close second:) I love fresh tortillas! We used to go to Cafe Rio to get our fresh tortilla fix, but last summer we made Homemade Flour Tortillas in our own kitchen and have been hooked ever since. I promise flour tortillas are super easy to make and you probably have all of the ingredients in our kitchen right now! You only need a few ingredients: flour, salt, baking powder, shortening, and water. The hardest part is letting the dough rest for 30 minutes. Cook the tortillas until they start to bubble up. The flour tortillas are good plain or you can use them in your favorite Mexican recipes. Plain or jazzed up, Homemade Flour Tortillas are the all kinds of awesome! And look at that little stinker trying to snatch my fresh tortillas.

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...

Ensalada de langostinos y kiwi | De fogones y hombres 04mar 12 por Pilar Sánchez Villar Compartir5 comentarios Resulta que el otro día mi hijo Ignacio, ya independizado desde hace algún tiempo, me comentó que él hacía muchas veces en su casa “…esa ensalada tan rica que haces tú“. Me resulta curioso que con la cantidad de recetas que he ido cocinando a lo largo de mi vida, mi hijo mayor me tenga identificada con un plato que es poco más que abrir una bolsa de ensalada. En fin, es lo que hay. La ensalada en cuestión sí que es verdad que sale muy rica y gusta a todo el mundo, hasta a los menos partidarios de las costumbres herbívoras.
