Bagel quiche AKA the portable quiche. Bake a quiche for one in the shell of your favorite flavor bagel. Add beaten eggs and your favorite fillings. 

Bagel Quiche 2

Are you ready for a hand-held quiche? An on-the-go quiche? You didn’t think that was possible did you? Well grab a bagel and tear its guts out because its time to eat breakfast.

Although this recipe does take 20-30 minutes to bake, it is a fun thing to try on the weekend and would be a perfect grab and go breakfast option if made in advance and reheated. After digging out the insides (similar to a bread bowl), fill with beaten eggs and your favorite additions. Bake and enjoy!

Homemade Apple Jelly

Turn those leftover apple skins and cores from making homemade applesauce and apple pie into jelly! Tastes great and you get to make the most out of every aspect of the apple.

Homemade Apple Jelly

So after you are done peeling and coring all those apples to make a delicious apple pie, are you supposed to just throw away the skins and cores? No! Don’t you dare throw those precious morsels into the waste basket. They are the perfect candidates for making homemade apple jelly. It make look a bit gross while it cooks down but I promise it results in the best apple jelly. And you will feel resourceful by using every part of the apple.

This recipe uses the skins and cores from 20 pounds of apples, which were used to make a bunch of homemade applesauce and two apple pies. In case you did not just have an apple-fest, you could also use whole apples to make this jelly. Five pounds of whole chopped apples may be substituted for the peels and skins from 20 pounds of apples. The most important part is making sure you have the exact amount of juice and sugar. Happy canning!

Open-Faced Ricotta, Arugula, and Egg Sandwiches

Enjoy this open-faced egg sandwich any time of day. Served with Parmsean-herb ricotta, arugula, and a poached egg.

Open-Faced Ricotta, Arugula, and Egg Sandwiches 1

Whenever an egg is involved as the central component of a recipe I feel like it’s breakfast food. But what about this sandwich – is it lunch or breakfast? I actually had it for breakfast but it could easily work for lunch as well, or heck even dinner if you prefer a lighter meal at the end of the day.

In my experience with open-faced sandwiches, they are served with a sauce or gravy on top which soaks in the bread and results in the necessity of forks. This open-faced sandwich doesn’t have any of that, at least not at first. But once you cut into the egg and let the yolk run amok you will find that it’s all the sauce you need.

Blueberry Kale Smoothie

Not all healthy smoothies have to be green. Blueberries mask the green kale in this delicious smoothie.

Blueberry Kale Smoothie 1

Well. Last night’s game stunk. I scared the cat with my cries of anguish as I watched the painful 4 hour game, losing to an unranked Virginia Tech. I have to say they played extremely well for an unranked team. And Ohio State made a lot of mistakes. Guess if you have to lose, better to do it at the beginning of the season. But anyway, this is s food blog not sports so I’ll get on with it haha.

Want to know the trick to making the green color from healthy green stuff magically disappear? Apparently all you have to do is add blueberries. Believe it or not there is a full, packed cup of kale in this smoothie and only 1/2 cup of blueberries, yet all you see is this pretty purple smoothie. If you look closely you can see little flecks of green but who gets up close and personal with their smoothie? Drink up and feel good about it.

Corn Frittata with Asiago Cheese

Sweet corn, salty Asiago, Italian parsley and smoked paprika make for one tasty frittata. Great for a weekday breakfast or weekend brunch!

Corn Frittata with Asiago Cheese

Since moving back in with my parents my breakfast caloric intake has greatly increased. Between my dad’s killer pancakes, waffles, and breakfast casseroles and my usual onslaught of desserts, it’s not surprising that the portion sizes of the other two meals of the day have shrunk to compensate.

Since my dad does most of the breakfast cooking, I’ve had a shortage of breakfast recipes the past few months. To remedy this I made you a frittata. Actually I made this frittata in June but the photos were taken on a different memory card and were somehow forgotten. Good thing photos of food don’t spoil!

No-Bake Gluten-Free Cherry Pistachio Granola Bars

No bake granola bars are incredibly versatile. Try this gluten-free version with almond butter, dried cherries, and roasted pistachios

No-Bake Gluten-Free Cherry Pistachio Granola Bars

Holy freaking September where did you come from? Thankfully with the help of Bob, Christina, and Dave the end of August was not overlooked. We hillbilly mini golfed, saw thousands of salt and pepper shakers, wine/moonshine tasted, hiked to the tallest waterfall in the Smokies, saw a folk-rock band, grilled and just had a good time. Alas the arrival of September meant they had to return to their respective states today.

Accompanying us on this adventure were these gluten-free granola bars which came in handy on the hike. Just like the base for my favorite chocolate chip cookies, the base for these granola bars allows for all kinds of flavor options. This time I made them with almond butter, dried cherries, and roasted pistachios.

Surprise Flapjacks

These flapjacks (pancakes) have all kinds of surprise ingredients from pecans to cornmeal, dubbing them as surprise flapjacks! It is no surprise however that they are quite tasty.

Surprise Flapjacks 1

I started off my week with a phone interview, only to receive a rejection letter for the same job the very next day. I am still waiting to hear back about my in person interview supposedly happening this month, which I’ve been planning on since May. I e-mailed them 2 weeks into July to which I received a reply saying they would be in touch. It’s been over a week since then and July is coming to a close. I’ll give them 2 full weeks before I follow up again. Hopefully they are truly sorting things out and not blowing me off. With that kind of apprehension, how about we end this week with some pancakes?

I am not sure why these flapjacks (pancakes) were dubbed as “surprise” other than the slew of surprise ingredients such as corn meal, oats, and chopped pecans. Makes me think that “compost flapjacks” would have been more appropriate. But no matter what the name is I am certain you will be calling them “delicious”. All of those ingredients come together for one hearty and tasty breakfast. I thoroughly enjoyed the texture the pecans added.

Homemade Strawberry Jam

Turn those end-of-season strawberries into delicious homemade jarred jam. Other than freezing them, it’s the best way to enjoy berries year round.

Homemade Strawberry Jam

While many of your have just started picking strawberries at your local U-pick farm, in east Tennessee strawberry season is ending and we are beginning blueberry and raspberry picking season. Which means it’s the perfect time to make jam out of those end of season strawberries. While jam making is not something I normally dive in to, my dad has made jam and jelly for as long as I can remember and therefore has all the tools to do so. We actually made this jam at the same time as the strawberry syrup.

Strawberry Almond Scottish Oatmeal & Giveaway

Creamy oatmeal lovers will rejoice with this Scottish oatmeal. This stone-ground oatmeal is filled with fresh strawberries, crunchy almonds. And it’s gluten-free!

Strawberry Almond Scottish Oatmeal 1

When it comes to oats, I didn’t know there was anything besides old-fashioned rolled and quick-cooking oats until a few years ago. Since then I have been introduced to steel cut oats, gluten-free oats and now Scottish oats thanks to Bob’s Red Mill. But what the heck is Scottish oatmeal? It is in fact the original oatmeal or, as we call it in the US, porridge. The fairly fine texture (although more coarse than flour) of Scottish oatmeal is the result of grinding the kernels with stone mills and when cooked results in a creamy, thick and almost instant hot cereal. I bet these Scottish oats would also be great in baked goods, substituted for old-fashioned rolled oats.

GF Scottish Oats

Naturally the first thing I made with Scottish oatmeal was in fact oatmeal (or porridge). I used the recipe for my favorite hot cereal, my dad’s apple harvest oatmeal, and substituted the rolled oats for Scottish oats and then strawberries and almonds instead of apples and walnuts. The end result was better than I had predicted. It was perfectly creamy, not too sweet and filling. I actually made this for breakfast on Father’s Day and it was most appreciated.

Want to get your hands on some Scottish Oatmeal? How about a I give you a bag AND a $25 gift card to Bob’s Red Mill? After checking out the recipe enter the giveaway using the Rafflecopter widget!
