The CO2inator A guest project by Rich Faulhaber, contributing Evil Mad Scientist. “Infusing unsuspecting whole fruit with gaseous CO2 in the entire Tri-State Area!” In an effort to make fruit fun for the kids, I built a carbon dioxide injector from parts in my garage with the purpose of carbonating whole fruit! The principle Carbon dioxide dissolves well in water, hence the reason you find it as the source of fizz in all your favorite soda drinks. Parts list 16 Oz paintball cylinder (or a more proper CO2 tank if you happen to have one) Gas Regulator Household water filter housing Some hose Toggle or ball valve Miscellaneous fittings to hook it all up Fruit This type of water filter housing is designed to withstand water pressures in excess of 100 psi, and it comes with two ports and an o-ring seal. For gas handling I used an old single stage regulator. Procedure: Pre-chill the fruit in the refrigerator. And of course, the kids love the “poppy fizz” inside the fizzy fruit.
My Favorite Quiche! ***It's not often that a recipe is worthy of re-posting. I think I've only done that once or twice in the entire time I've written this blog. However, this is one of those rare occasions. Back in 2009 when Brad and I went to Europe, we had the most amazing Quiche Lorraine at the incredible Les Deux Magots cafe in Paris. It was delicious and was served alongside a yummy salad of fresh greens (Quiche Lorraine sur Salade Verte). Oh, it was heaven on a plate! I'll never forget the elderly lady that was sitting at the table right next to us (the tables were situated pretty close together). Shortly after we returned from our trip, I posted a recipe for Quiche, which you can see HERE. After one bite of this, you'll be in love! Bon Appetit! Ingredients:1 pie crust, rolled out and fitted into a 9″ pie pan 3 eggs, beaten 1 1/2 cups milk 1 Tbsp oil 1 medium onion, minced 8 oz mushrooms, sliced 1 bag (6 oz) baby spinach 6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled 1 1/2 cups Gruyere cheese, shredded 1 tbsp flour
Sausage and Eggs Benedict with Mock Hollandaise Sauce Sausage and Eggs Benedict with Mock Hollandaise Sauce Eggs Benedict has to be my all-time favorite breakfast. There’s something so soothing about slowly poaching each egg and carefully making the beautiful hollandaise sauce. Sometimes I don’t want all the fat in a regular hollandaise sauce though, and I make this simple mock version. It’s a combination of mayonnaise, sour cream, Dijon mustard, lemon juice and fresh dill. We eat breakfast for dinner at least once a week. I used this gorgeous ScanPan to cook my sausage. I made this sausage and eggs benedict as part of Johnsonville Kitchen’s Wake Up To Better Breakfast Promotion. And you can participate in this fun contest too! Share your Johnsonville breakfast photos below in the comment section for a chance to win Johnsonville product coupons. I received the ScanPan shown above and product for this post, but no other compensation.

MOVIE BITES – QUIDDITCH PLAYER’S PIE Musical pairing – The Quidditch Match by John Williams I am completely in love with the world of Harry Potter. I wear my Gryffindor scarf with pride. I pick up sticks when I’m on walks with my husband just to wave them in the air at him and say “Expelliarmus!” So when I went search for Harry Potter-based recipes, I was excited to find so many. Quidditch Pie is one of the many culinary delights that I imagine Molly Weasley bakes in her charming cottage kitchen amidst all of her knitted potholders and dark wooden furniture. She uses magic. Anyone can be a great cook if they can wave a wand at their ingredients. First I spooned the ground beef/carrot/onion sauce mixture into a lasagna pan. The icing bags I was using were super thin. I slid the Quidditch Pie into the oven, settled into a comfy chair to watch “The Prisoner of Azkaban” and waited for the results. The Quidditch Pie was wonderful. I didn’t tell her about the instant mashed potatoes . . . © 2011 – 2013, Audrey.

Bacon and Egg Cups As you are probably well aware by now, I love cereal. I don't think I have come across a cereal that I didn't like. If I want to get my day started off on the right foot, I pour myself a huge bowl of cereal and leave the house with a very happy tummy. This week, however, my cereal intake has been less than satisfactory. We have cereal in our pantry but sadly we ran out of milk over the weekend. Now that that's taken care of, I would like to share with you a little creation I threw together to feed my hunger pains this morning. These Bacon and Egg Cups are easy to put together and take less than 30 minutes to bake. Bacon and Egg Cups Ingredients: 1 slice of bread per muffin cup2 slices of bacon per muffin cup1 egg per muffin cup1 tablespoon shredded cheddar cheese per muffin cup (optional)Salt and pepper to tasteDirections:Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
