It’s been a while since I made this. It was the result of a mini pantry challenge that I was doing to avoid going to the grocery. I pulled the ingredients out of the fridge and freezer and created this. I think I was out of garlic and that’s why I used Italian dressing in place of oil and garlic. I wasn’t sure that it would work, but it did. This post is going to be less of an actual recipe, and more of how to put your own make-shift meal together.

Still looking for a Christmas breakfast idea? You might want to make this french toast. The prep is all done the day before, so that in the morning all you need to do is slice the bread and fry it.
It’s really a cranberry bread pudding that is then sliced and dipped in eggs and half&half and then fried. The recipe is adapted from the Country Living Country Morning cookbook. [Read more…] about Cranberry French Toast with Cranberry Syrup
I cooked up a bunch of bacon the other night, intending to put it all back in the freezer for another time. My youngest son was begging to eat it for dinner though. Since I wasn’t in the mood for breakfast for dinner, I decided to add it to a pasta dish. We ate every last bit of this. There were no leftovers at all. I guess they liked it 🙂 [Read more…] about Bacon and Tomato Pasta
I was going for a copy cat version of Johnny Carino’s Bowtie Festival when I created this. Several months ago, I created Penne Gorgonzola, which came very close to the restaurant dish. This Bowtie Festival was excellent, but it was not exactly like the restaurant version. Something was missing, but we couldn’t quite place it. That said, I will make it again. How can you go wrong with pasta, parmesan and bacon? Wonderful stuff. [Read more…] about Bowtie Festival
The smoky taste of bacon and swiss cheese makes this quiche perfect for dinner or breakfast. It also heats up well in the microwave, so grab a leftover slice for lunch. I adapted the recipe from an old Southern Living recipe I found. I added a few shortcuts to make it faster.
