Tips-y Tuesdays: Simple Egg Quiche

I’ve been making so many breakfast foods lately…waffles, pancakes, eggs, and so on. Whenever I can mix it up a bit, but still keep it easy, I am happy. I am making this a tips post instead of a recipe just because I don’t have a full recipe to show you.

What did I do?

Almond “Make Now” Bread Pudding

With everyone home all of the time, I have been making lots of different recipes since more cooking is required. But, grocery shopping is a bit interesting right now since sometimes ingredients are not in stock, or other times I am in such a rush to not be out too long and  I might miss something.

I’ve made lots of French toast but was never completely happy. I wanted to up my game. I decided to try a new recipe and it is decidedly better so here I am sharing it.

Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls

These were so good. Even days later. I had never thought to try chocolate cinnamon rolls before but there was a recipe with other variations that the Fudgelet saw. He wanted us to try them, so that’s what I did. I spent some time in the evening making the dough, then let it rise during bedtime things and finished it when the kids were asleep. Then I baked them for our lunch.

Crepes for Brunch

Happy New Year! I wanted to start the year by sharing something brand new for me. I’ve eaten crepes before, but never attempted making them because I assumed they would be too difficult, or require special tools. It turns out, they are maybe even easier than pancakes. I love that you can make the batter ahead of time and just wake up and make them. I didn’t even use a blender to make them which would have made it easier (the Fudgelet was sleeping and I wasn’t going to risk waking him to save a little elbow grease).

Basic Pancakes

When I got an apartment in college, my parents (specifically my mom) made sure I had a few cookbooks to get started. One of them was the Betty Crocker cookbook I referenced for these pancakes. She wrote an inscription wishing me a “Happy apartment and cooking!” which is still nice to see. I have so many bookmarks in this spiral book. Many of the bookmarks are recipes I’ve pulled from magazines, etc. Sometimes, the simplest recipes are the best.

Pear and Chocolate Nib Bread Pudding

This post was all about using random food items I had accumulated through the week. This included half of a stale baguette, half of a doubled Walnut streusel recipe, some heavy cream, and some egg whites. It all worked together very well with this bread pudding. Feel free to make some additions or subtractions when you make it.
