Freezer Egg Sandwiches

A baby on the way means lots of easy to grab, quick to reheat freezer meals- especially for breakfast! These cheese, ham, and egg breakfast sandwiches are stored individually wrapped, perfect for when you need to grab a quick to-go breakfast in the morning. Whats nice about them is you can pop one or two in the microwave whenever you need one. I’ve tried toasting the sandwiches too, which works out great, it just takes a little more time. You can also vary the ingredients on each muffin, although some combo of egg, cheese, and ham usually makes it onto all of mine. AND I’ll show you my favorite easy way to poach eggs- in a muffin tin!

Grilled Steak Salad with Shallots and Blue Cheese

I’m trying my best to get into the groove of eating more salad. It’s actually a pretty big challenge, since I like big and bold flavors, and Adam doesn’t like anything green (other than green jelly beans he pointed out). Plus we’re lovers of all thing carbs- pasta, bread, all that good stuff. So, I…

Twice Baked Scalloped Potatoes

Always say yes to a brunch that includes scalloped potatoes, especially twice baked scalloped potatoes. Really anything with a combo of cheesy potatoes, cubed ham and cream sauce would make a perfect addition to not only an Easter brunch, but any meal any time of day. I made these to go along with a big…

Noodle Kugel

Coming at you with another favorite Easter tradition- Noodle Kugel. Have you had this before? It’s one of the only exceptions for dinner that tastes more like a dessert. Kind of like savory crepes.

But despite their long list of ingredients, they are very easy to make. The most time consuming part is shredding a couple of carrots, but there are ways around that. If you have a…

Blackberry Upside Down Cake

I think it’s best to always keep a fresh cake on your counter for special occasions. You know, like Tuesdays. It’s no secret that I loaded up with fresh blackberries from the yard last summer and froze them for whenever I had a moment of gotta-make-something-with-fresh-fruit in the middle of winter. Like when I made…
