More Quiche Please!

More Quiche Please!
When figuring out what to make for breakfast yesterday, since I was up so early, I had time to make quiche!  I quickly discovered that I had broccoli that was on its last legs, and some Jimmy Dean sausage leftover from Easter that needed to be used up, as well as buttermilk – so quiche it was! I love crustless quiche.   Who needs the extra...

Crustless Broccoli Spinach Quiche

Crustless Broccoli Spinach Quiche
Another cookbook I got at a thrift store recently was Cooking Lights Annual Recipes from 2004.  Is it sad that I read cookbooks like an actual fiction novel? 😀 I adapted one of their recipes for my breakfast yesterday.  It took all of about 5 minutes to put it together and it baked while I blogged yesterday morning.  I knew I was going to share...

Green Eggs and Ham

Green Eggs and Ham
Yesterday’s breakfast was so simple and good – it baked in the oven while I was getting ready for work. In the bottom of a 4 inch ramekin, I layered one ounce of cut deli ham, one cup of baby spinach, 1/2 cup of egg whites and then put a slice of pepper jack cheese on top.  I baked it at 350 for 20 minutes...

Breakfast Pizza/Chili/Spinach Fettuccine

Breakfast Pizza/Chili/Spinach Fettuccine
I hope you have a full cup of coffee before starting to read this monster post – although it will mostly be pictures! I am glad everyone was so concerned over my not having pizza Friday night.  Don’t worry – I took care of that as soon as I woke up Saturday morning! I love the yolk like that – not runny, but slightly tender...

Spicy Oats with Cheese and Bacon

I haven’t had spicy oats in ages!  I hope my friend doesn’t mind, but I forgot my camera at home so I am stealing a picture from her because she first gave me the idea!  Thanks Allison! Breakfast comes in at 351 calories, 14 fat, 26 protein, 28 carbs and 4 fiber.  Hopefully Hannah can bring me my camera for lunch!  😀 Today is the...

Blueberry Lime Muffins

Blueberry Lime Muffins
Ever since being diagnosed with diabetes, I’ve steered away from baking, which was something I did a lot of pre-diabetes.  When Hannah was little that was one of our favorite things to do on the weekends.  I have vivid memories of her standing on a stool, with an apron on, and me standing behind her trying to help her use the hand mixer.  I routinely...

Breakfast Bread Pudding

Breakfast Bread Pudding
I had to use up my whole wheat bread I made over the weekend – with no preservatives, it goes pretty quick.  So I decided to make a breakfast bread pudding! 2 cups egg whites 2 large eggs 2 ounces shredded cheddar cheese 4 ounces diced whole wheat bread 1 cup baby spinach 1 ounce deli ham, chopped salt and pepper Mix everything together: Morning...

Beef Tostadas

Beef Tostadas
I got the inspiration for tonight’s dinner at Heather site: GirliChef!  Since I knew I would have half of a beef brisket leftover from our homemade burger lunch, this really worked well.  So I spent $17 on the brisket, but that was lunch for 4 and dinner for 3, and leftovers for the dog!  I had a great grocery shop too – $86 this week!...

The Perfect Omelet

The Perfect Omelet
I love when there is leftover steak, because that means I get to fix a steak omelet!  I diced up 2 ounces of steak and just heated it up just enough to get the chill of the fridge off – I still want it pretty rare. View Full Album 2 eggs 1 ounce shredded mozzarella (the fine shred really looks like a lot of cheese!)...

Black Rice Egg Bake

Black Rice Egg Bake
Last night I made black rice, but my camera battery died before I could take a picture!  It’s jet black in the bag, but turns to a purple after its cooked – we all liked it and it reminded us of wild rice with the nuttiness. I had two ounces left over so I decided to base my breakfast on that!  2 ounces cooked black...
