Sourdough Dutch Baby

I adapted our Dutch Puff recipe to use some of the sourdough discard and it was so good. This doesn’t really even need anything on top but my kiddos like it with a dusting of confectioner sugar or a drizzle of honey or syrup! They also like to eat it with applesauce, fresh fruit, or yogurt. Continue reading “Sourdough Dutch Baby”

Stuffed Mushroom Omelet

This is such a yummy way to start your day and we love this with mushrooms but you could really use any kind of vegetable you like and maybe even add some bacon or sausage to make it a little bit heartier. Some of us like to eat this with a side of Super Simple Sauteed Spinach.

This could work for lunches and dinner too for those crazy days when you just don’t feel like cooking much or when you haven’t been to the grocery store in a while. Continue reading “Stuffed Mushroom Omelet”

It’s all about the eggs!

This time of year eggs are selling like hotcakes with all the egg hunts happening all around. Not to mention a lot of get-togethers and I’ve had many requests about egg recipes so here is a list of our favorite egg recipes:

The Easiest Boiled Eggs Ever!

Pickled Eggs

Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs

Here’s a couple more that use boiled eggs:

Potato Salad

Bread, Breakfast, Brown, Business, Cappuccino, Chicken

Super Easy Rotisserie Chicken Salad

Super Simple Egg Salad

Okay, these aren’t really eggs nor do they use eggs, but it’s Easter and I had to include them.

Chocolate Covered Eggs


Super Simple Egg Salad

This is such an easy thing to make and so delicious… I just boiled some eggs so I think I might just whip up some really quick and have a sandwich as it is way past lunchtime! I like to eat mine on toast but maybe I’m just weird but it is good just as it is too. Continue reading “Super Simple Egg Salad”

Bird Nests

I really don’t know what the name for these originally was. My mom would fix them for us every now and then. I’d always get so mad because I had that one sister who would steal all the buttery toasted rounds and eat them for herself.

I usually serve this with some grits and some fresh fruit. Continue reading “Bird Nests”

Breakfast In a Cup

This is pretty much what it’s called. Eggs, sausage, and veggies mixed together and baked in a muffin cup. These could also be made ahead of time and placed in the freezer. Continue reading “Breakfast In a Cup”

Pickled Eggs

I know I’ve said it before but it’s worth saying again, we like eggs and we eat a lot of eggs around here. We have a flock of lazy chickens right now but I’m sure they will start laying again soon. I make these when we have more eggs than we can give away.

I try to keep a couple of large glass gallon size containers with lids for making these in. These are also a favorite treat around Easter. I try to make them a week ahead of time as the longer they sit they better they taste!

Pickled Eggs


  • 4 -15 ounce cans whole beets (I like to use the pickles beets when I can find them)
  • 24 hard-cooked eggs, peeled
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 2 c. water
  • 2 c. apple cider vinegar


Drain beets, reserving 2 cup juice.

Place beets and eggs in a gallon size glass jar.

Bring the sugar, water, vinegar, and beet juice to a boil.

Pour over beets and eggs; cool.

Add water, if needed, to cover the eggs.

Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 24 hours before serving.

Dutch Puff

Dutch Puff

(This is one of those recipes that I really don’t remember where I got it from.)


  • 1 stick butter
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 c. milk
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 t. salt. optional
  • 1 T. vanilla, optional


Preheat oven to 400.

Put the stick of butter in a 9×13 pan or a 12-inch castiron skillet and place it in the oven to melt while you prepare the puff.

Beat eggs, milk, flour, and salt until smooth and then another minute more, stir in the vanilla.

Remove pan from the oven and pour the mixture into the melted butter.

Bake for 20-30 minutes, until golden brown.

When you get the puff out of the oven it will be golden and puffed, lovely.

Serve immediately. If you wait it will deflate.

Top with molasses, honey, fresh fruit, confectioners sugar or maple syrup. Maybe even try it with Blueberry Syrup or one of the homemade fruit pie fillings found HERE.

For a special change try making individual servings of dutch puff in oven-safe ramekins. Again this is fun for the company. You can prepare ahead of time and then pop them in the oven as each person wakes.

For Sourdough Dutch Puff:

decrease the milk to 1/3 c. and use 2 c. sourdough starter in place of the flour.

Deviled Eggs

We love eggs, as I’ve said many a time before, and deviled eggs usually show up on the holidays or any special occasion. This is just a basic version of deviled eggs. I have seen others that use relish and hot sauce, even one that was called a ‘Sanctified Egg’.

This is one of those recipes that I really don’t measure at all. I just add and taste. I’ve tried to get the amounts as close as possible but you can adjust them to your taste.

WARNING: Overindulgence of these could cause others to distance themselves from you later on in the day! Continue reading “Deviled Eggs”

Boiled Eggs

We like eggs no matter how they are cooked. I love them in salads, deviled, and even pickled. All of these recipes call for boiled eggs though. That elusive boiled egg that seems like it should be so easy but can make even the calmest cook lose patience when the eggs refuse to give up those shells without making a mess of the egg beneath.

One of my fondest memories revolves around my mom-mom, my mom, and me in the kitchen trying to peel eggs. My mom-mom had her way to do it and my mom had her way. Me, I hadn’t a clue and we laughed so much at each of our attempts. It was a wonder that we managed to have enough eggs to make the deviled eggs that day!

There are a million and one, at least, ways to make a boiled egg. We can make them on the stove, in the microwave, in the oven, and I think there are gadgets to make the perfect boiled egg. I don’t know about all the other methods but this is the tried and true method we use here.

I recently found an even easier way to boil eggs using my Power Cooker. Check out this method HERE. Continue reading “Boiled Eggs”

Bacon Grits/Cheesy Grits

My kids love grits, buttered grits, cheesy grits, and especially bacon grits! This is a super simple way to prepare them when you are short on time. My kids usually eat these served over their scrambled eggs with some jelly toast on the side. Continue reading “Bacon Grits/Cheesy Grits”

Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole

I’m thinking that I may try adding some cooked bacon the next time. This would also be good with some sautéed onions and/or bell peppers. Continue reading “Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole”
