It’s time for brunch again and this Avocado Breakfast Bake doesn’t disappoint!
The herbs and spices in this dish blend perfectly to add a flavor that will tempt your tastebuds.
The textures of the avocado, eggs and cheese are the icing on the cake.
And will lull your family into a sweet content with making them overly full.
Light and fast, this dish allows you all to eat at the same time creating an opportunity for conversation.
For extra spice, add a seeded chopped jalapeño chile when cooking the onion and chorizo
The best part?
You can prepare your brunch the night before.
Just take it out of the fridge and bake for 25-30 minutes! Delish!
It’s that time of year when I bring out my St Paddy’s recipes!
This dump and go snack is No Bake!
Only 5 ingredients and 5 minutes from first thought to snacking out the bowl!
I was looking through the pnatry trying to clean up all those snack bags with only a few odds and ends in them.
I should never try that when I ma hungry.
Or bored. Or cold. Or hungry, bored and cold!
I used dark chocolate m&m’s since they are more heart smart than the milk chocolate.
I have used yogurt covered raisins, all types of cashews and peanuts for this type of mix.
Other times I just grab and cereal and different types of pretzels to add in the bowl.
I have even used mini chocolate bars leftover from Halloween!
The beauty of this snack mix is anything will do as far as ingredients.
For me that includes sweet, salty, and nutty.
And this mix fit the bill!
If you watch portion sizes you could even call this snack a healthy snack treat!
I tried it to eat just a handful and FAILED!
My guys just couldn’t stop eating these this mix. It is that good.
Next time, I am going to refill prefill the bowls and put a clip on the rest!
Let me know what you think!
Trying to create a mouthwatering and delicious green food is as hard as making blue food look appetizing.
After many tries I decided the natural green looked more appealing to the eye.
The addition of food coloring is optional. Remember to only add 2 drops at a time so the color changes only slightly. Mix well.
This bread recipe requires no yeast and literally comes together as quickly as a cake batter.
No need to decorate or frost as the sweet addition of the cinnamon sugar adds all it needs.
We love pistachios in my house so this bread is a natural.
You can serve it room temperature or heated.
I do serve it about 60 minutes out of the oven when we want to add butter.
There is no real need to add anything to enjoy the bread.
I always let the pans stand on a cooling rack for about 30-60 minutes or until the loaves are cool to the touch.
Then I run a knife along the edges and flip the pan, tapping the bottom to release the loaf. Put a loaf in a loose plastic bag or place in foil.
This bread can also be refrigerated.
I do hope your family enjoys this Green Pistachio Sweet Bread as much as we do!
No more dry corned beef!
Cook this in your slow cooker all day and you’re guaranteed success!
Corned Beef and Cabbage is a favorite in our home on St. Patrick’s Day.
There is nothing better than throwing a few ingredients into the crock pot and smelling it cooking all day.
Even if you are a working mom, coming home to a house smelling of a tasty dinner ready to serve your family is a treat all on its own!
My Husband just loves cabbage! He will eat it in any form or recipe.
i have only ever liked my cabbage in Cole Slaw.
Well in my home that was not to last long.
I made Corned Beef and Cabbage for the first time after my daughter-in-law used this Crock Pot recipe.
I also crushed a clove of garlic and mixed in the broth.
Instead of 10 baby red potatoes substitute 4 large Idaho potatoes.
I was no longer intimidated to try making it.
The hardest part was cutting the head of cabbage.
The longer the meal cooked the stronger the aroma filled my kitchen.
And the more I fell in love with this dish.
The recipe couldn’t be simpler.
Now not a birthday or St Patrick’s Day comes along without the crock pot filled with corned beef and cabbage!
