Breakfast Casserole with Sundried Tomatoes and Spinach

When my kids were little I was that mom who used to put zucchini in their scrambled eggs. In fact, there were sweet potatoes in pancakes and shredded carrots in muffins. If I could find a way to sneak a vegetable into my kids mouths, I did it. Getting your kids to eat nutritious foods isn't always easy....sometimes you have to be a little bit sneaky! I came to discover that it is really pretty easy to find places to put vegetables, especially in a breakfast casserole like this one! There are a lot of breakfast casserole recipes out there on … [Read more...]

Whipped Blackberry Honey Butter Recipe

I am sadly reaching the end of my blackberry harvest. The hot temperatures and minimal rainfall have pretty much ended the berry production on my plants. I am happy to have harvested several good sized bowl fulls to put on cereal or just eat by the handful. I had a few handfuls left of the last batch and was looking for something creative to do with them. I decided to put together a whipped honey butter and incorporate the blackberries into it. Honey butter is a huge treat when I go to restaurants...I slather it on rolls and would lick the bowl … [Read more...]

I am compensated for the articles I write for SC Johnson but all opinions expressed here are my own. Have you ever gone to the grocery store and seen those boxes of instant oatmeal packets?

Cereal Crusted French Toast #Recipe with Fruit Compote

One of my family's favorite dinners is actually breakfast! We do eggs quite a bit for dinner, sometimes as an omelette and others as french toast or a quiche. Eggs are an incredibly versatile food and offer plenty of protein as well. Sometimes eggs get a bad rap for being high in cholesterol but as long as you are healthy and eat a balanced diet a few eggs every week are not going to hurt you. In fact, skipping the steak and choosing eggs as your protein source is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. We get most of our eggs from local … [Read more...]
