Mouth Watering Mondays – Mini Cinnamon Pull-Aparts

Looking back at April of last year, Ken was in the kitchen and creating these amazing Mini Cinnamon Pull-Aparts. These would be perfect for the Easter long weekend, for guests to have a delicious breakfast or snack.

They are like a fresh cinnamon bun packaged up like little eggs and so fun to pull apart. Kids and adults would equally love these just as much!!

Protein-Packed Peach Smoothie

Cal Cling Peach_Logo (2)What are your thoughts on canned fruit? Do you think they lose their nutritional value? In winter months when fresh produce is scarce or not very appealing, do you go to canned produce? Well you should!!

The canning process has actually been proven to increase nutrients, including antioxidants and Vitamin A. Canned peaches are also nearly four times higher in Vitamin C and 10 times higher in folate than fresh peaches. Think of how far your fruit has to travel before it reaches you. In a nice vacuum packed container makes more sense for our winter months.

Not only are they nutritious, canned California cling peaches are delicious and versatile and can be included in a number of recipes like this Protein-Packed Peach Smoothie!!

California cling peaches do not contain added sugar. They are packed in water or their own light juice.

This smoothie was so delicious, I had never tried the almond milk before either and really enjoyed. Our daughter and her friend loved them too.

Eggs in Minutes

Day 4 of 5 Days of Egg Dishes. You can have a healthy breakfast in a matter of 2-3 minutes flat. I love a quick fix microwave egg like this one!! If you are in a rush, need some good protein at work or just feel like an egg in the morning, nothing can be faster and more satisfying than an egg. With endless additions, you can create an “original” everyday!!

I used to make these when I was working nights in nursing. A good pick me up on break in the middle of night to help you keep going for the rest of your shift.

Then I saw Martha Stewart had a recipe and that inspired me to make them again for Amber. She has loved these for years. She likes when I use two eggs, little tomato chopped up on top and Parmesan cheese.

Eggs Wraps

Day 3 of 5 Days of Egg Dishes. Ken is the Eggman (Beatles tune popped into my head) in this household. He loves making up a delicious breakfast. I am a more grab and go kind of gal, as I tend to be in the kitchen for the rest of the day. I adore his creations and he is at it again with this yummy egg wrap. He is the master with an egg, scrambled, poached, omelet, sunny side up, over easy, he knows them all. Most weekends he is a short order cook and you can have our eggs anyway you like them. Yes, Amber and I are very blessed.

Fluffy scrambled eggs wrapped up with cheese and ham in a tortilla. That is my kind of breakfast, served up hot!!

This is a quick, nutritious and delicious breakfast for kids too!! Scrambled eggs can be nasty if they are not cooked right, rubbery and inedible. The trick to them is not to overcook them, stop the cooking before they are done and if you like you can add a little water.
