Why This Blog?


Come in and make yourself at home. I'm so happy to be able to share my recipes here with you.

I bake mostly cookies, quick breads, muffins and scones -- sometimes pie, sometimes cake, but nothing too fancy. I prefer simple recipes that call for ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.

These are the recipes I will share with you. They come from family and friends, magazine clippings saved through the years, favorite cookbooks, and other blogs.

I'm so glad you came to visit. Enjoy your stay!

Bacon and Egg Muffins

Something savory from The Big Green Bowl? Yep.... but it's still a muffin!

I made these for the first time today, and the verdict from my kids? "These are amazing!" 'Nuff said.

Scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and bacon all in one bite. Drizzle with a little maple syrup for the total delicious effect. This recipe was in the April 2012 issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine.

Bacon and Egg Muffins
Yield 12 muffins

4 slices bacon
5 eggs
1 cup flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 tsp. salt
2 TB sugar
2-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Maple syrup

Preheat oven to 400-F.

In a large skillet, cook bacon just until it begins to crisp. Remove to paper towels. Cut into 12 pieces for tops of muffins.

Using a pastry brush, grease a 12-cup muffin tin with the bacon drippings.

In a small bowl, beat 3 of the eggs with 2 TB water and a dash of salt and pepper. Cook and scramble the eggs. Transfer to a bowl; set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt.

In a smaller bowl mix the milk, oil and remaining 2 eggs. Add liquid mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Fold in the scrambled eggs and cheese.

Spoon into muffin cups (cups will be full) and top with a piece of bacon. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden and toothpick in the center comes out clean. Cool slightly. Run a knife or off-set spatula around the edge of muffins to loosen; remove from pans. Serve with syrup if desired.

*If you have left-over batter, you can make a pancake in the skillet that you cooked the bacon in. I did this and it was delicious!

Happy Baking!
