Cheese & Green Chile Oven Omelette

How to make a quick and easy oven omelette recipe with eggs, cheddar and cottage cheese and green chiles. Makes a simple low carb, keto, and paleo breakfast casserole without potatoes or bread. Perfect for busy families for mornings, breakfast, brunch, lunch, or even dinner. Could add bacon, baked ham, or sausage for a little extra oomph, but the vegetarian version is awesome on its own.

I have always eaten a lot of eggs. Starting when I was a little girl, my sister and I would walk to Old Grandma’s house (just down the dirt road a stretch or over the hill and across the field) and eat 2 fried eggs – yolks broken and hard – for breakfast with Grandpa. Later, I ate fried eggs in a restaurant when my dad took my little sister and I for breakfast. Then, when I became a vegetarian in college, I ate a whole lot of eggs as they were a reliable source of protein. When I moved … Read more

Southwest Chicken and Rice in the Instant Pot

How to make the best quick and easy chicken taco recipe in the Instant Pot. Super healthy with rice, beans, salsa, and cilantro. Authentic Mexican recipe for street tacos.

We resisted the Instant Pot for a long time, but when my friend Jill drank the Kool-Aid and raved about her IP, I finally caved and got one. She said it would save oodles of time and energy in the kitchen, and my poor husband is seriously overworked, so I thought he would love it – if it was as amazing as Jill claimed. I brought the new Instant Pot home and gave it to Joe for his birthday, hoping he would not hate me for it. Well, he didn’t. He did a little research and totally fell in love … Read more

BBQ Beef Muffin Cups Recipe

One of my mom’s favorite recipes was corn mini pies. They are made with a delicious filling of cream cheese, corn, and chicken, stuffed inside layers of Pillsbury Grands!® biscuits and baked. My mom made them all the time, and we have carried on this tradition. Grace and Allie love them, too. Except for the onions. They don’t love the onions. We like the concept of corn mini pies so much that we’ve branched out to other fillings. Our next favorite is BBQ beef. These cups are quick and easy to put together, making them perfect for dinners after a … Read more

Zucchini Quiche (Gluten-Free)

We are at the point in our gardening and CSA seasons where we are swimming in zucchini. We are getting a half dozen zucchini in our farm box each week, and our own zucchini plants are producing baseball bat-sized fruits almost daily. It’s a good thing that we love zucchini in all its incarnations. Well, two of the four of us do anyway. Allie declared that she hates it just yesterday, and Grace won’t eat anything green. (Where did I get these kids from?!) My all-time favorite way to eat zucchini is stuffed with cream cheese, but I also really … Read more

CrockPot Mexican Steak and Beans

We like meals where there is salsa and there is cheese. Give us those two things, throw in some chocolate beans (Allie’s term, black beans to the rest of us) and corn, and you have a meal that Joe and I are sure to gobble up. This recipe, because it is made in the CrockPot, is even better than the average salsa, cheese, bean, and corn concoction. Joe tossed it in the crock the night before, left it in the refrigerator overnight, and put it into the CrockPot in the morning. By suppertime, we had tender steak tips with a spicy … Read more

Hot Pizza Dip Recipe

The best hot pizza dip, originally from a Pampered Chef recipe - Simple and easy with cream cheese and pizza sauce, this dip is the perfect appetizer. Low carb and gluten free. Great with pepperoni, olives, mushrooms, or other pizza toppings. Perfect food for the Super Bowl or parties. Kids love this too. Lots of mozzarella cheese.

  When I was a Pampered Chef consultant, I made this hot pizza dip recipe pretty often at parties. It was always a big hit because it tastes amazing, and it’s easy to put together. The original recipe is slightly different than my version. If you want the real Pampered Chef recipe, you’ll have to Google it. We took this to our small group meeting for church, and everyone had seconds. When we make it at home, the kids make sandwiches out of their scooper chips. I don’t get it, but they always do it, so it must be a … Read more
