    Yum, breakfast casserole [​IMG] We enjoyed ours a lot.

    We'll be having quiche for the next week or two. DH makes a good one (and he made 2 this time, lol). The quiche are baked in pie shells then we just cut each pie into 8ths, wrap the slices individually and stick them in the freezer. We'll pull a couple slices out as we head out to take care of the animals and pop it in the toaster oven when we come back in. Better than a Pop Tart any day [​IMG]

    I would love your Amish Friendship bread recipes. Maybe someday I will find someone who is willing to share their starter with me. There are plenty floating around here I am sure.

    Macaroons with fresh coconut are to dye die for! (oops!) My neighbor hooked my on them that way. After shredding the coconut meat, they are pretty easy to make.

    Don't let your yeast and salt touch.
    Make sure your water is the right temp for the yeast, not too hot or cold.

    Those are the things that usually make my bread go bad. [​IMG]

    Hi @sunflour , here's the quiche recipe you asked for, hope you'll try it and let me know what you think.

    QUICHE
    6 large eggs, beaten
    1 1/2 Cups heavy cream
    salt & pepper
    2 Cups chopped spinach
    1 lb. bacon, cooked & crumbled
    1 1/2 Cups shredded Swiss cheese
    1 single pie crust (9")

    Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
    Combine eggs, cream, salt and pepper, mix well.
    Layer the spinach, bacon and cheese in that order in the bottom of the pie shell.
    Pour the egg mixture on top.
    Bake 35-45 minutes (until egg is set).

    Makes 8 servings

    Note: We've made this with both fresh & frozen spinach, both are good. If you use frozen spinach, let it thaw & drain it well.

    Here's the new cookie recipe I tried today. Wow, very chocolatey, definitely want a glass of milk or cup of coffee to go with this one. The batter is like a very thick cake batter and when these bake they get really shiny. This made 3 dozen for me (made mine a little on the small size).

    FLOURLESS FUDGE COOKIES
    2 1/4 Cups powdered sugar
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 Cup cocoa powder
    3 large egg whites
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    2 Cups chocolate chips or diced walnuts (optional...I did 1 cup of each)

    Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
    Whisk together dry ingredients.
    Stir in egg whites, vanilla and chips & nuts, if using them
    Drop by tablespoon onto baking sheet.
    Bake 8 minutes (if adding chips & nuts, add 2 minutes to baking time).
    Allow to cool on baking sheet.

    Can't get the photo to upload right now, will try later. Hope you all are having a great day!

    Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche Recipe - this is our adaptation of a Kraft foods recipe.


    Ingredients:

    1 cup sliced mushrooms - we buy an 8 oz package and use it all.
    1 small onion chopped
    1 large Broccoli head, chopped
    5 eggs
    1/3 cup Miracle Whip ( or mayo if you prefer)
    1/3 cup milk
    6 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese ( or your favorite cheese?)
    9 inch deep dish pie crust ( have been using frozen…but thanks to this thread will make mine next time :)

    Preheat oven to 375 F. Place veggies in skillet with scant oil or cooking spray. Cook on med heat 5 min or until veggies are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.
    Beat eggs, dressing/mayo and milk in medium bowl until well blended. We add a dash of salt and pepper. Stir in sautéed veggies and the shredded cheese. Pour into pie shell - placed on a baking sheet.

    Bake on the baking sheet for 40-45 minutes or until center is set and top is golden brown. Let stand 10 min before cutting to serve.


    ** original recipe calls for 1 cup of chopped onion and 1 cup of chopped broccoli. I thought 1 cup of onion was too much, but you may prefer to use more than me. I find it easier not to have to measure the onion, broccoli…but you are steadily learning how lazy I am …lol.

    First oven baked roast beef.

    We have always done ours in a crock pot…but with the time change, got a late start and decided to try it in the oven & it is the best we have ever done and so, so easy.


    I know most who follow this thread don't just bake but can really cook…not me [​IMG] I prefer fun baking & hate routine AKA drudgery routine food prep. Quik, easy and delicious.

    Anyone interested, I can post the recipe.
