Loaded Chicken Alfredo Gnocchi Bake - an amazing and delicious combination of chicken alfredo, cheese, and bacon

 Remember that time I told you how I didn’t like to make dinner?

Hhhhmmmm!  Yeah, I might have changed my mind on that.  Lately, I have been filling my food lists with some delicious sounding savory dishes.  Very slowly I am working my way through that list.

I still prefer baking up a storm, but this dinner thing isn’t so bad after all.  [Read more...]

My goal to start making more dinners is going pretty well.  I have been trying to experiment more with savory foods along with all the sweets each week.

So far, so good.  I have this one and one other dish ready to share with you.  Both meals were given thumbs up by my little taste testers.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Getting your servings of dairy is a little bit easier when you eat Broccoli Cheese Soup for dinner.  Serve it with a fun bread bowl for something different at dinner.

Can I just tell you that I have the coolest job ever?  It might seem a little strange to you.  I mean I do start busting out the pumpkin in early August, start on the peppermint by October, and then I’m ready for coconut in January.

Oh, and I get to go visit cow farms and see how cheese is made.  Definitely a strange job!  But I seriously love every minute of it.

A few weeks ago I joined a team from the American Dairy Association Mideast in Cleveland, Ohio for a whirlwind trip of farms, food, and fun.  The first night we had dinner at The Lakehouse Inn & Winery on Geneva-on-the-Lake where we learned how to pair the right wine with different cheeses from Marianne Frantz, the founder of American Wine School.

I hope you are ready for some pictures…you are going on the virtual tour with me now.   [Read more...]

Broccoli and Cheese Egg Casserole

Broccoli and Cheese Egg Casserole

I know you are used to seeing lots of sugar treats here, but today we are going to take a look at one of my favorite lunch meals.  My husband makes this Broccoli and Cheese Egg Casserole for us to eat throughout the week.

He usually eats this for breakfast and I will usually have it for lunch.    The egg casserole is not something new.  I love it because you can change it up with different vegetables each time.  Now because I’m the one making all the sugar, and my husband is the one making the dinners, I had to ask him for the ingredients.  My husband kind of laughed at me and said he bakes by feeling.  He just throws in what he wants and doesn’t measure.  So the other day I had him make this with me,  and I measured the ingredients for this Broccoli and Cheese Egg Casserole.  He said I was cramping his style by making him measure :-)

Broccoli and Cheese Egg Casserole, low fat breakfast, healthy meal choice, egg casserole

 For this particular egg casserole we used red onion, mushrooms, broccoli, a can of tomatoes, and a bag of sharp Sargento cheese.   We like to use a food processor to chop the vegetables.  It will cut down on your prep time by quite a bit.  We have the Ninja and I love it.  It is perfect for finely dicing your ingredients in a very short amount of time.   Whisk your eggs, stir in the vegetables, and pour in a baking dish.  It doesn’t get much easier than that.  One bowl to clean and no mixer.  You need easy recipes like this every once in a while.

This Broccoli and Cheese Egg Casserole is so delicious.  The best thing about this casserole is that it reheats well.  I usually reheat a square in the microwave for lunch.  It is a nice meal to make up and have in your refrigerator for the week.

Eating a healthy lunch means I can have that brownie or cookie in the afternoon.  Oh wait!  That isn’t how healthy eating is supposed to work!
