Quiche Even My Kids Like

This is a quiche even my kids like because it contains two of their favorite ingredients–cheese and bacon. It’s quick to put together and pop in the oven before the kids are even up. It’s not an everyday breakfast,just a nice treat and change up to our regular menu. 1 frozen pie crust, do not thaw 4 oz shredded cheese of your choice, more if you like 4 slices of cooked and crumbled turkey bacon 3 large eggs 1 1/2 {Read More}

Blackberry Freezer Jam

This week Texas weather hit an all-time high of 70 degrees. After going through three weeks of temperatures below 20 degrees, we Texas are breaking out the shorts and flip-flops! Ah, spring is on the horizon! Not really though—I checked the weather just now and in a few days we will be back down to 50 degrees. But who cares! We can stop making the warm soups and begin breaking out the crisp vegetables and fruits. A local grocery store {Read More}

Better Breakfast: Steel Cut Oats

When I began my quest to break away from the cold cereal rut, oatmeal was a natural choice.  I started my family out with unsweetened instant oatmeal, adding a little bit of cinnamon and all-natural applesauce to taste. This was healthier than the instant flavored oatmeal that they preferred, but I am trying to get away from so many processed foods and instant oatmeal is highly processed.  I noticed that they didn’t have the “staying power” that I was looking {Read More}

Plum cake

When my husband and I were missionaries in Hungary we simply adored eating Hungarian plum tart.  I found this recipe last year which uses American ingredients.  I tweaked it a bit to make it healthier, reducing the sugar and using whole wheat flour. I was happy to be able to share this old favorite with my kids, and they love it, too!  It’s sweet enough for a dessert, but with my healthier version, I feel perfectly justified serving it for {Read More}

Chocolate Gravy and Biscuits

If you’re not from the South or have relatives from here, you may have not heard of chocolate and biscuits.  It’s sweet, delicious, dangerous, and leaves chocoholics wanting more. A true Southern delicacy. Forget Nutella on croissants–this puts that to shame! Start breakfast off right by popping the biscuits in the oven to cook and start some sausage on the stove. Biscuits are best homemade, but I’ll let you in on a secret. Pillsbury’s Southern style buttermilk biscuits are easy {Read More}

Homemade Granola Bars

If you’re looking for a delicious snack that everyone will love, look no further! These homemade granola bars are a fantastic alternative to the store-bought variety which are packed with preservatives. Plus, the recipe can be adjusted very easily to accommodate taste and/or supply. Add in toasted coconut, dates, almonds or other mini m&ms! The recipe is super simple and quick to throw together. The hardest part is waiting for them to cool — I wanted to eat them right {Read More}

Better Breakfasts: Frozen Yogurt

Two years ago I started baking my own bread, and my concept of a healthy meal changed radically. I realized that my family was eating a whole lot of processed food, and I began to think about replacing more than just our white bread. One of the last bastions to fall has been our cold cereal breakfasts.  I am not a morning person, so my quest to “reinvent breakfast” had to fit the following criteria:  it had to be simple, {Read More}

Healthy Strawberry Muffins

I love this recipe for the sheer fact that it’s brilliance. Muffins in a healthy form! I originally got this recipe from Pinterest, but added a couple different ingredients. This recipe is so simple, quick, and perfect for the single lady or the mom looking for a quick breakfast. Healthy Strawberry Muffins Makes 10 muffins 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour, I used whole wheat flour 2 Tablespoons ground flax seed ½ teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon ¼ cup {Read More}

Cinnamon Chocolate Scones with Mock Clotted Cream

When the clock says it is almost dinner time and I haven’t even formulated a plan about what we should eat yet, I turn to something quick, tried, true, and simple.  Although it may sound grand, our British Tea Party menu is a family favorite that I can pull together in about 30 minutes, working quickly.  I preheat the oven to 400 F, set a pan of eggs on the stove to hard boil, get the tea things ready, and {Read More}

Better Breakfasts: Kefir

  Our family recently discovered Kefir in our search for better breakfasts.  My husband and I used to drink it when we lived in Eastern Europe, so I recognized the taste even though I didn’t recognize the name. Kefir is known to be one of the top 10 superfoods.  It is a natural, highly effective probiotic.  Traditional Kefir contains more probiotic “friendly bacteria” than yogurt, and its bacteria are able to colonize in the gut, making it far superior to {Read More}
