Jimmy Dean’s Crustless Quiche


Day 68 –  Once a week we have Breakfast for Dinner. It makes my dinner planning easier. Also, breakfast for dinner meals tend to be a bit simpler to make and my family thinks it is fun. Have a bunch of cereal open that you want to get rid of? Make a cereal bar. Place…

Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting


Day 62 – We have started making fancier breakfasts on the weekend since the shelter in place started almost 9 weeks ago. It seems like we are taking more time to do the family things (which is good). There are no commutes to jobs and school even if they are working on the weekends. That…

Western Quiche


Day 54 – Trying to find new ways to amuse ourselves. We are doing tons of cleaning now. For the longest time I think we resisted it. Don’t get me wrong we sort of cleaned more than usual but not the really deep cleaning I wanted. The scrub the living room carpet, take everything out…

Twice Baked Ham and Cheese Potatoes with Fried Eggs


Day 53 – Looking at the report in “The New York Times” the other day about how deaths are projected by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to be possibly double by June 1st and that cases of Covid-19 are still going up made me incredibly sad. It was one of those days where I…

Spinach, Feta, and Mushroom Quiche


Day 47 – I had a meeting the other day with some of the agents in the travel agency I work for and when they asked how we were all coping with the changes in our lives.  I mentioned how in some ways I have really liked this time and am settling in to it….

Honey Cornbread


Day 46 – Today is my son’s birthday. Birthday number 2 in “Safe home. Stay safe.” I love that we don’t have to order out for the kids birthdays they want me to cook their favorite dinners.  We did order a cake from the local grocery store decorated with Star Wars for his birthday. We…

Breakfast Sausage Egg Squares


Day 39 – As states are talking about ending shelter-in-place rules do you have a line when you know it will be safe for your family to go out? We are talking as a family that even if our state ends shelter-in-place in a week we will not. I am not comfortable yet sending out…

Revisited: Sweet Potato and Corned Beef Hash


Day 33 – Our electric bill has gone up. At first we were a bit shocked then we took a look around. All our computers, phones, dishwasher, washer, and dryer seem to be on all the time. I guess with how little we are spending in gas, which is now down to $1.40 a gallon, it…

Belgian Waffles


I love Belgian waffles. You probably thought I was kidding when I said we were having breakfast for dinner for the week. I love how easy breakfasts are to make and the kids love the variety. I also love that you can make extra and freeze them for future lunches or breakfasts – a win-win….

Oladi Russian Pancakes


I am tired. I am remember when we were kids my parents wouldn’t schedule anything for two or three days after vacation. I remember thinking how could they do that? I wanted to keep going. Now, I get it. I am bone weary tired. We drove from MI to Lake Geneva, WI to Orlando, FL,…

Apple Fritters


We like to have a nice slow breakfast on the weekends. Usually we make a coffee cake, doughnuts, or some kind of sweet. This was our first time making fritters. They have a doughnut place in Kalamazoo that recently had a fritter contest. Each week they featured two flavors that went head to head and…

Chocolate Croissant Breakfast Casserole


It’s Breakfast for Dinner Thursday! My family has been talking quite a bit about cannolis recently so I was thinking of making a cannoli stuffed pancake or a cannoli breakfast casserole but I didn’t have the right kind of cheese on hand to make something like that. What I did have though was croissants from…
