Deluxe Cheesy Jalapeno Omelet

Extra cheesy Jalapeno Omelet recipe!  My favorite Summer time breakfast!

The truth is that I made these Cheesy Jalapeno Omelets for the first time in June.  It was was when the jalapeno plants in the garden started exploding with peppers all over each plant.  And then after I tasted it for the first time I knew I had to share the recipe with you guys.  Now it’s November and the recipe is finally here.  What has taken me so long? Well I’ve just been eating these Cheesy Jalapeno Omelets nonstop!

What do you have for breakfast, is it usually a quick meal or do you like to sit down with it?  I don’t really like meal rushing, so usually I sit down for every meal.   Breakfast ranges from toast and a banana to something more savory, like scrambled eggs or a omelet.   On weekends it tends to get sweet with homemade pancakes and waffles.  Right now I’m all about pumpkin pancakes, YUM.  But back to this omelet.

Jalapeno Omelet Recipe

The basis of this recipe is my favorite scrambled eggs recipe.  Not to brag, but they kinda have been declared the best scrambled eggs by many eaters, so yeah.  It’s a good start.  This recipe for eggs has been with me for a long time and I pretty much stick with it as it’s my favorite.  Throw in some cheese and chopped up jalapenos, fold the eggs instead of scrambling and the Cheesy Jalapeno Omelet is born. 

First, you’ll need one jalapeno to make 2 omelets.  Then you want to chop it up.   Here’s some jalapenos that are still growing, even though it was October!  We have a big bag of them in the kitchen.  Jalapenos also freeze great if you want to throw them in the freezer to make them last longer.

Stovetop Cinnamon Vanilla Granola

Easy step by step recipe instructions on how to make Stovetop Cinnamon Vanilla Granola!  Once you realize how easy it is to make, you’ll never buy it in the store again!

Do you love granola?

I know a boy who does. It’s my other half, Matthew. He loves it.  Last week Matthew became obsessed with granola again.  He goes through these spells of loving it.  There was a time last year where he was ready to have his midnight snack in bed and he realized he was out of granola. What did he do? Did he pick to eat something else? No, he got on his bicycle and ran to the grocery store at midnight to buy more granola.

Talk about dedication.

So yesterday we ran out of granola again.  I went to the grocery store and I couldn’t get over the prices of it.  Can someone explain why granola is so expensive? Seriously, $8 for 10 ounces?  They are crazy.

So after I got over (or didn’t get over) my sticker shock I decided to head back to my kitchen and make my own granola.  The benefits of making your own granola is that it’s much cheaper, you control the ingredients and you get to throw on your kitchen apron.  I love wearing my kitchen apron.  Total side note, but did you notice that as soon as you take your apron off in the kitchen, that’s when something splashes on you?  It always happens.

Ok back to the granola.  I wanted to make a quick granola.  So welcome Stovetop Granola in your life!  

What do you need for this Stovetop Granola recipe?  First you need a saucepan.  Now I have to show you the new love of my life.  Are you ready to swoon with me? Here it is!
Easy step by step recipe instructions on how to make Stovetop Cinnamon Vanilla Granola! Once you realize how easy it is to make, you'll never buy it in the store again!

OOOOH! AHH!

Look at the color on that beauty! It’s called “flame” because it sets my life on fire.  

It’s my new Le Creuset Signature saucepan and I’m in love with it.  Matthew keeps asking if I have to take it to sleep at night and I’m like “duh”.  You know, it’s just me, Matthew, 4 cats and my Le Creuset tucked into our bed.  Talk about a happy family!

This saucepan pretty much makes cooking more fun (if that’s possible) due to the splash of color and how amazingly functional it is.  It keeps everything hot for so long.  Like my love for it.  Sorry guys, kinda crushing hard on this guy.  I think I should name him.  How about Mr. Love?

Oh no.

This is scramble eggs with bacon.  Together.

I hope I just scrambled your idea of breakfast.   So now let’s enjoy these together.

Scrambled Eggs With Bacon_6

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day.  On fast days I grab a bowl of cereal. In the Winter time it’s usually toast, figs and tea.  But on extra special days and weekends, it’s a full on breakfast.  Sometimes it’s pancakes.  Sometimes it’s waffles.  Sometimes it’s a egg burrito.  But my favorite breakfast? Scrambled eggs.  As a kid my Mother would make me scrambled eggs while she enjoyed hers “dippy” style.  I would usually lather my scrambled eggs in ketchup.  Ok I’m lying, I still do this.

This Winter we got very lucky with our carrots.  We didn’t have high hopes for them but upon one Spring cleanup day we were surprised to find pounds of carrots hiding under the soil waiting for us to find them.  It was a giant surprise and it created some giant garden smiles
Fresh Garden Carrots

Aren’t they just beauties?  I just can’t get enough of fresh carrots.  There’s nothing like the taste of a carrot that was just picked.  Sometimes I nibble on one as soon as I pick it, I just can’t help myself.  So I took the carrots down to the kitchen and pondered… What to make?  I was craving carrots for dinner so I made some brown sugar glazed carrots that were delicious but I wanted to make a dessert with them too.  
Fresh Garden Carrots

I had a real craving for carrot cake but I didn’t have everything on hand.  Then I thought to myself: DONUTS!  Then I thought..

Quick French Toast In A Mug

 I’m here to tell you about one of my favorite new cookbooks.  Every single recipe in the book is made in a mug, from breakfast to dinner and everything in between.   Are you amazed yet?   

I’m kind of love with mug recipes for many ideas but really the 2 big ones are:
I love eating out of a mug.  It makes me feel cozy, especially in the winter time.
So far everything I’ve made from this cookbook basically just calls for you to prepare it in a mug, that means no dirtying a ton of dishes.   Only a mug to clean?  Yes!  Also many of these recipes are super flexible on location.  If you are having lunch at your office and they have a microwave, now you have a great lunch time alternative instead of shelling out $8 on a sandwich.

The recipe creator and author of the book Camilla V. Saulsbury does a great job at covering a variation of recipes, all quick to make.  In the beginning of the book she does a small introduction informing readers of the increase in popularity of meals in a mug (Fact: An October 2013 Google search of the phrase “mug recipes” yielded more than 40,900,000 hits) and talks about how mug cooking is a great econimical alternative to fast food as it’s almost instant satisfcation.     So next time you are craving quick food, say no to fast food, and make yourself something that will be lower in calories and high fat content – right in your kitchen, in a mug!

FinalCoverMealsinaMug

Flipping through this cookbook, I bookmarked quite a few pages.  Here are some of my favorites:
Tex Mex Migas Mug
Pepperoni Pizza Dip
Bacon and Corn Chowder
Sessae Soy Edamame
Blackberry Crumble

Honestly, I can go on and name a ton more, but my first I needed to make was French Toast In A Mug!
If you’re anything like me you  love French Toast.   It’s one of my favorite breakfast foods.  If I go to a diner, no matter what time of the day it is, I will probably order French Toast (with a side of turkey bacon too!).   One thing I don’t love about French Toast is that if I want it on a lazy morning, well, it’s not happening.  No, French Toast is not hard to make, but it’s not something you can just throw in the microwave while you get your first cup of tea brewing.   Now French Toast in 2 minutes is possible!

Quick-French-Toast-In-A-Mug_4

FrenchToastMealsMug

 This recipe calls for you to gather all your ingredients right there in the mug.   If you want to make it even quicker, you can prepare it the night before, which means in the morning you just pull it out of the fridge and it goes straight into tho microwave.

I also wanted to test this recipe to see how it would hold up outside of the mug – would it fall apart or would it hold it’s mug shape?   This is important if say you only have 1 mug and want to make 4 servings for your family, or if you want to put everything on plates for presentation purposes.   Guess what – it held it’s shape perfectly.

Blueberry Lemon Glazed Muffin Top Donuts

These donuts are crazy.  These donuts cray.

I made these one afternoon where I was craving blueberry and sweets.  Matthew and I each had one, and we went to our own desks to continue to work.  Then I heard Matthew walking towards me in the loft.  His plate was empty.  “Oh man, can I have another one of them?”

Isn’t that just the dream response?

I told him to eat his heart out.  Then we talked about how we should stop doing our work and dedicate our lives to donuts.  Oh maybe that was just me, I don’t know, these donuts hit me hard.

Crispy Hash Browns

Easy to make delicious Crispy Hash Browns!  Perfect for breakfast and dinner!

We love hash browns a whole lot in this house but we always bought the kind in the frozen section at the super market.   Being that I love to be able to make everything we eat, I had it set in my mind that I would figure out how to make crispy hash browns.  Crispy, that’s the hard part. Did you ever make hash browns and they are wet and moist? That’s just the worst and it upsets my hash brown loving heart.  The key to getting crispy hash browns is by squeezing the grated potatoes, you’ll be amazed by the amount of liquid you can get out of them.  How do you squeeze them?  Well I like to get my exercise in while making dinner so I hold the shredded potatoes in my hand and just squeeze the heck out of them.    If you have a potato ricer this will work amazing as well, but I don’t so instead I just use muscles.

The Best Fluffy Buttermilk Waffles

 You are going to want these waffles for breakfast.  If you already ate breakfast you’re going to want to eat it again, or even better you’re going to want waffles for dinner.  Personally I love breakfast for dinner so I say heat up the waffle maker and get the maple syrup out.     

For many years my life was empty without a waffle maker.  I added it to my cart on Amazon so many times but somehow talked myself out of buying it. I would see waffle recipe posts on all your lovely blogs and I would leave comments in shame, kicking myself for not buying that waffle maker.  But on my birthday this year I woke up to a candle in the middle of a pile of waffles at our table.  I shouted “Waffles!”.  Then it hit me, not only did Matthew make waffles for my birthday breakfast but they came from a waffle maker. I got a waffle maker, my world was happy again.

Since getting a waffle maker a few weeks ago we have made these fluffy buttermilk waffles so many times.  We both declared them the best waffles ever so we don’t even want to try another recipe.  They are extremely fluffy thanks to the buttermilk.     We love them so much I have been making big batches of them to freeze.  Waffles freeze beautifully which means you can make a bunch at once, and then just heat them up for 1 minute when you’re groggy in the morning.  Waffles, you rule.

How do you eat your waffles?  A little maple syrup with a sprinkle of powdered sugar is the way I go.

Print
Ingredients
  1. 1 1/2 cups flour
  2. 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  3. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  4. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  5. 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  6. 6 tablespoons butter - melted
  7. 2 eggs
Instructions
  1. In a bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  2. Stir in buttermilk, melted butter and eggs. Stir until mixed completely. Your batter will appear thin but this is what we want.
  3. Pour 2/3 cup of batter into the middle of your waffle maker once heated.
  4. Close lid and cook 5-6 minutes or until golden brown.
Notes
  1. Makes 4-5 pancakes.
  2. To freeze: Put in freezer bag. I like to put wax paper in between each waffle so they don't freeze together. When ready to eat, just take out of the freezer and put in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.

Bananas.  Do you love them? I do.   I’m in this routine where I eat 2-3 bananas, a day.  It’s my snack and it makes me so happy.   I have to buy 2 bunches a week at the store to keep up with my banana love.  

Brown bananas though kind of freak me out.  I can handle a little brown here or there, but when they go very brown and mushy, I can’t eat them with a spoon like some people do.    So what to do?   You can make a smoothie, that sounds good.  Or you can make banana soft serve ice cream, also really good.  Or you can make these Mini and Moist Banana Muffin recipe!

These mini muffins are extremely moist.  I was blown away by how soft they were inside.   They have a banana taste to them, but it’s not overwhelming, although it’s still there.  My husband who doesn’t like bananas at all kept saying “I don’t like bananas, but these are really good”.  See, they win non banana lovers over too!

Overnight Blueberry Maple Oatmeal

Overnight Blueberry Maple Oatmeal is a quick breakfast that’s waiting for you in the morning! Healthy ingredients include oats, blueberries, milk, syrup, flax seeds and cinnamon!

I can’t get enough of overnight oatmeal.  It’s easy, quick and perfect for those summer days where you wake up, leave your air conditioned bedroom and the humidity just smacks you in the face tossing you back into your bedroom to cry under your chilled blankets.  

I made Overnight Cookie Dough Oatmeal a few posts ago and it was delicious, especially if you love peanut butter.    But I wanted to try something with more fruits and reminded me of pancakes, so I added in some syrup and fresh blueberries and Overnight Blueberry Maple Oatmeal was created!  I love this so much I had it 3 times already this week.  Last night while laying in bed at 2AM, I was thinking about it so I got up and made it so I could have it the following morning.  It’s that easy where you can make it half asleep while a cat tugs at your toes to come back to sleep.  (In case you are wondering, FiFi Bofinkles is the toe tugger).

Stay tuned for more upcoming overnight oatmeal recipes – I’m obsessed.

Overnight Cookie Dough Oatmeal

Did you ever wake up in the morning and the last thing you want to do is make breakfast? Actually, the last thing you want to do is wake up, but after that.. you just don’t want to make anything.  As some of you know my go to breakfast is my usual breakfast sandwich, and although it’s quick to make, sometimes I just want breakfast in 10 seconds.  My solution?  Overnight cookie dough oatmeal.  Get ready… this oatmeal is magical!

Knowing you will want a few extra minutes to sleep, or knowing you are going to have a hectic morning, or just knowing this oatmeal is so darn good you want to plan in advance, this is a overnight recipe.  Before you go to sleep, stir together all these ingredients, it takes 2 minutes.  Throw it in the fridge.  When you wake up the next morning, splash a little bit of milk on top, and eat away.  It’s that easy!

Can I tell you how much this breakfast fills me as well?   This breakfast easily gets me through until lunch wanting no snacks in between.  And because the oatmeal has peanut butter in it and tastes like cookie dough, it’s like a breakfast dessert.  Dessert for breakfast – can life be any grander?

For this recipe you need flax seeds.  I didn’t know much about flax seeds, but here’s what I found out: they rule.   Putting them in the overnight oatmeal is going to make the oats thicken, so they aren’t runny.  You can also add them to muffin and cookie recipes.  And because of how little you use, this bag is going to last me at a long time.  Flax seeds are a good investment.

Just a side note, Matthew’s younger brother was terrified of the Quaker Oats man as a kid.  Matthew (because he’s a loving brother) still sometimes sends him Quaker Oats wrapped up as a gift (to terrify him more).

blogIMG_2490
Night before, easy.  Just put all your ingredients in a bowl.   

blogIMG_2495
Then mix it all around.  If you notice, it looks runny because of the milk.  Your flax seeds are going to take care of that though and thicken it!

blogIMG_2510
The next morning, thick!  Delicious! I add a little splash of milk, stir it around, then it’s breakfast time.

blogIMG_2511
You an eat it plain, it’s delicious that way, or you can add a topping. Topping ideas: sliced bananas, dried or fresh berries, shredded coconut, pumpkin seeds, chocolate chips.

I love some dried blueberries so that’s what I added.

My Favorite Breakfast Sandwich

Hello, I’m Pamela and I love this breakfast sandwich.  

I have 2 things I really want to say about this beautiful egg and cheese sandwich.

1).  I debated posting this on the blog for a long time because of how easy it is.  Finally I decided simple or not, it’s special to me and deserves it’s own glory in a post.

2).  I really really love this sandwich.  Let me tell you how it all started…

A couple years ago we started teaching a early AM digital photography class.  Prior to this I did not eat breakfast as I would usually wake up later in the morning and go straight to lunch, but needing something to eat in the morning and wanting to sleep in, I started a dangerous route in eating breakfast sandwiches from 7-11.    This would be my breakfast right  before class began:
photo 1.JPG

Now don’t get me wrong – I love 7-11 breakfast sandwiches, after all it started my love affair with making my own, but one day I took a look at the nutrition facts on these and looked at my scale rising and realized these were not going to be good in the long run.  So I set out to make my own.   My rules were they had to be quick to make and delicious. I wanted them to be better than 7-11, it was a competition (7-11 just didn’t know about it).

So I gathered the simplest supplies at the grocery store:   Thomas English Muffins, American Cheese Slices, Eggs.  There the love of my life was born, my favorite breakfast sandwich in the world.  To say I am crazy in love with these would be a understatement.  I have approximated I have eaten 325 of these in the past year.    I find I actually eat healthier when I start my day off with sandwich because I consider it a favorite treat so by 1PM, I feel like I have spoiled myself.  Then for the rest of the afternoon I can snack on fruit and nuts and totally be happy with it.   Just thinking of this egg sandwich makes me so happy. I can’t wait for tomorrow morning!

How much do I love them?
When I wen to London, I made them every single morning for breakfast:

I ate one for Christmas breakfast last year:

I ate one for Easter breakfast this year:

Do you see the path I’m leading you down? I’m trying to make you love his egg sandwich as much as I do so you can have 30 pictures of the same egg sandwich on your phone like I do.

So here it is, your 260 calorie breakfast sandwich.

These are your ingredients, simple. I love Thomas’s, I love them more when they are on sale.  A word about cheese, I’m a Kraft singles girl, I can’t help.  I bought some organic American cheese slices from Trader Joe’s last week and was underwhelmed so I use it on Matthew’s egg sandwich when I make him one.  For me, it’s Kraft all the way.
