Now just imagine what happens when you say this word Frittata to a roomful of high school students. They think it is hilarious. I love it! This was a staple at my house even before I knew what a Frittata was. If you have eggs you can do this. This is your go to meal when you have about thirty minutes to get a meal on the table and you don’t want another sandwich or a bowl of cereal. If you have leftover pan roasted potatoes or hash browns it will be even faster to put together.

I have been preparing all types of vegetables this way forever. For example, Brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, peppers, grape tomatoes are just a few that have hit my skillet. It is so easy to do and if you are in a hurry it is quick as a wink. I love potatoes any way they are prepared, but I love this one in particular because it reminds me so much of homemade fries without the fat. We did these in class and they were a huge hit with everyone. And yes they did let their imaginations go wild and served them in ways that I would dare not ( bacon and cheddar cheese) ! Reminder: their metabolism is running at the high-octane level and mine well, it is a tad slower.
If you are in a big hurry to cook up something that is really tasty, I bet you have all of these ingredients in your kitchen! My classes are making this dish and it is the biggest hit. I’m always amazed at the simplest of dishes that can make you happy. This is one of them, so get ready for some big smiles coming your way.
If you are like me sometimes you think that more is better when it come to a recipe. But I am learning that really simplicity is the winner. When I was thinking through what to prepare for the rest of the year back in January this dish came to mind. It was a winner with last year’s crowd , but it was more time-consuming for a forty-five minute class. So I threw out something super simple and am pleasantly surprised at the results.
This is a great idea to get your kids in the kitchen. I made these last week for my high school students and they loved them! It is something that can be thrown together in a matter of minutes and the next thing you know you are enjoying them with a cup of Joe! It makes about 30 at about 80 calories each with is not too bad. So if you were like me with some canned biscuits hanging around in the refrigerator these are winners.
This recipe is nothing fancy, but it will be one that your family will ask for time and time again. You know the one that makes your husband smile when he finds out what’s for dinner or when half your son’s baseball team shows up at your house and they are all starving! It’s quick, easy, and above all cheesy good! Again, I am loving Katie Workman’s Cookbook The Mom 100 Cookbook. This is one of Katie’s recipes that I have made many times. It is so good and it will be a favorite of yours once you put it on your dinner table.
I have the best cake recipe for you today. It is going to knock your socks off! Don’t look at me sideways, but it’s made with a cake mix. Yes, it is true. I didn’t believe it myself when I tasted it. I just knew my friend Marilyn was lying, but no she doesn’t lie! It is like a big chewy brownie with a hint of rum, chocolate chips and nuts. Now who is not going to love it? When you take a bite you are going to think that you have died and gone to heaven – chocolate heaven that is.
I think that I have found the perfect pudding for you! There will be no more instant pudding nor will there be the yucky pudding that is ready made in those plastic tubs. This is put together in less than 10 minutes from start to finish. It is a really rich chocolate pudding that no one will believe you made in the microwave.
When I posted the recipe on my Promethean board one of my students said, ” Beginner skill? Mrs. Lupo you know that we are way beyond beginners now!” That being a true fact we still have only 45 minutes to get the job done. This recipe was just the perfect fit! So here are my tips for the pudding after making it twice at home, 4 times for my students, and 24 groups of students making it. Now yours will be perfect!
After doing as little shopping one of my favorite places to have lunch is Prime at Lenox Square. I just love their Cobb Salad with blue cheese dressing. I am happy to say that I have found the recipe so now all of us can enjoy it at home. It packs a lot of flavor and you’ll find you only need a small amount so guess what – a reduction in the amount of calories. I can go for that! I just put together a chopped salad including chopped romaine, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, and hearts of palm. I placed all the vegetables in a container with a top and added about a heaping teaspoon of dressing. I put the top on it and gave it a good shake. Oh my Gosh! So help yourself to the greatest salad dressing and it is just a shame that it is so easy to make.
I found one of the easiest brunch recipes today. Your’re going to either hate me or love me. Especially when we’ve all made our New Year’s resolutions to be more healthy. It won’t hurt to indulge in just one small piece, though. The recipe is from one of my favorite recipe sources Pillsbury. It is a bake-off winner from 1998 and so simple that if will leave you wondering if you have done something wrong. I just bet that you have all the ingredients right there in your kitchen to get this started at your earliest convenience. You’ll need a Pillsbury pie crust, light brown sugar, softened butter, chopped pecans, and powdered sugar. While to pastry is coming to room temperature you can measure all your ingredients. In a mere 30 minutes you will have one of the best pastries that you could buy anywhere.
Now here’s how to put it together.
Last month I served these to my book club. Now they are here for you to pull out for your next get together. They are so easy to make. In fact you can prepare the dough ahead of time and freeze so it will be sitting there ready when you are ready. A hundred years ago I made these cheese straws using a manual cookie gun and I found them quite difficult to push through. Now Paula Deen has saved all of us some manual labor. How much easier can you get than slice and bake?
