Egg Muffins

I really love to start my day healthy. It may not always end up that way, but if I could give us all a head start, that works for me. I like to prepare quick, healthy breakfasts ahead of time so I don’t have to do much cooking in the morning. I enjoy taking it easy and drinking my coffee while I plan for all the other big meals. I have been making these egg muffins for a while now. They are filled with veggies and protein and are delicious. They go quick because everyone grabs them throughout the day, so double the recipe if you want to have enough on hand. They can easily be stored in the fridge or freezer. I take a few out of the freezer each day and put them in the fridge. It takes about 20-40 seconds to heat it in the microwave. We like to add a dab of Sriracha on top for a little spice!

***Keep in mind that any of these veggies and cheese can be replaced with what you have in the house or what you prefer!***

Overnight French Toast with Pecans

I LOVE Christmas morning. How could it get any better? The Christmas tree is lit, presents are everywhere, the kids are happy and my coffee is brewing… Let me tell you, Overnight French Toast with Pecans will make Christmas morning even more magical as the smell of cinnamon fills the air as breakfast bakes. I hope you give this a try and start a new tradition for your family. Merry Christmas 🤶🏼

I’ve been seeing a lot of recipes for overnight french toast and really had to try it myself. I am a big fan of french toast because it is such a simple, budget friendly meal that the whole family loves. So to think I could prepare it the night before and just bake it the next day was amazing.

This recipe was adapted from several recipes I found online. So, a big thanks to all those bloggers that tried this before me. Some of the recipes were just too sweet and heavy for us in the morning. I definitely cut out some butter and sugar. And the pecans take it to the next level.

Zucchini Pie

This is more than a zucchini pie to me. It brings back memories of my Grandma when we were little. Every week she drove from Brooklyn to Long Island to spend the day with my mom, my sisters and I. She either brought a car full of paper towels and tissues, a weeks worth of fresh Boars Head cold cuts with fresh made mozzarella that was still warm, zucchini pies or all of the above. I can go on and on about what a special lady she was, but I will stop there.

I actually have the recipe card she wrote this recipe on.

This isn’t her typical cooking.  I feel like she must have gotten this recipe from a neighbor or the newspaper. But anyways, its delicious. It’s definitely a woman’s meal. Great for brunch or to bring to a friend’s house. I’ve eaten it for breakfast, lunch and dinner…
