This recipe can also be found on our post for Boston Cream Pie. It makes an excellent cake filling! Any leftovers […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

Possibly my favorite breakfast ever is a good eggs benedict, or really anything smothered in real hollandaise sauce. I’d always assumed it was beyond my skillset to make myself however, and many of the recipes I came across for it made a large batch that would be difficult for a small family like mine to […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.

Best Quiche Eva! It’s my favorite, anyway. I’ve made a lot of quiches with a lot of combinations. I’ve also tried more traditional ones, like Quiche Lorraine. I love quiche, but I always walk away feeling like I just ate a stick of butter…all that cream, bacon, rich pie crust and cheese. This quiche […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Life can move pretty fast some days. That’s why fast food restaurants are so tempting. This gotta-leave-the-house-in-twenty-minutes sandwich will keep you from lining up at the drive thru. If you have a little more time, try it with the caramelized onions. Make it for a Meatless Monday meal or a sunny day when heading outside […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
