About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Breakfast Ideas

If my husband could have his way, he would probably have a fried egg and toast every single morning.  Me, not so much.  If I had my way, I would eat cold cereal every morning.  But Mike has convinced me that we both need variety so here's some easy, delicious ways to eat eggs and still have variety.

Egg, hash brown, and cheese wrap - we had this yesterday morning.  Take a flour tortilla and lightly spread salsa on it and heat in the microwave for about 20 seconds.  Fry your hash browns and place those on top of the salsa.  Scramble eggs and sprinkle cheese on top and layer the eggs on top of the hash brown.  Roll tortilla into a nice wrap and serve.

Bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit - ok, so I will admit that I don't make homemade biscuits.  I find that Pillsbury Grands Frozen biscuits taste just like Grandma's and it's a huge time saver to have them in the freezer.  Take a couple biscuits out of the freezer and place in a 350 degrees oven.  Fry your bacon.  We used turkey bacon this morning and it fries quicker and without all that grease.  Scramble eggs and you're ready to put your biscuit together.  Slice the biscuit and layer the bacon, eggs, and a slice of cheese on top.  Super yummy!

Biscuits and sausage gravy - I never liked biscuits and gravy when I was younger but in the past two years, I have learned to LOVE them.  My husband makes the best sausage gravy.  And yes, once again, we don't make the gravy from scratch.  We love the Southeastern Mill Old Fashioned Pepper Gravy mix.  It takes about two minutes to prepare and is very delicious!  Mike will fry up some sausage and keep it crumbled up and combine that with the gravy.  Pour that over some hot biscuits and boy is that the best breakfast ever!

Eggs in a Nest - Mike normally gets this when I'm not in the mood to make breakfast. LOL  It's super easy and he's getting his eggs and toast all in one.  Take a slice of bread and butter both sides lightly.  Cut a hole or use a cookie cutter to make a hole in the center of the bread.  Place the bread in the frying pan and crack one egg in the middle of the hole.  Let fry until the egg is cooked to your preference. 

So those are some ways we make breakfast around here.  The rest of the mornings, I get my cold cereal and Mike gets a bagel or toast.

  1. I am not a big on eggs either, it is usually cereal or something simple for me in the mornings. There are a few egg recipes that Jake makes that I really enjoy which usually means there is a lot of "extra" cheese added or he removes half the yolk. Reading this post makes me want to try eggs again! Thanks for sharing we'll have to try them!

  2. well since my kids don't like eggs I'll just come over there for my egg sandwiches :)
