Cinnamon Sugar Snackers


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.

Lime Squares with Pistachio Graham-Cracker Crust

Lime Bars

It’s spring break for me!   The weather here now is just about perfect, but let’s wait a couple of days and I’m sure that it will change.  You know we are at 32 degrees one day and the next is 75!  Anyway it is so nice to be off for a few days.

Our ALTA tennis season is going strong and this is what I made for the match.  By the way,  my partner Maria and I won!  It was just a gorgeous day to be outside and I will have to say that I enjoyed every minute of the win.  These Lime Squares are a winner,too!  Martha Stewart just amazes me.  I receive her newsletters in my email everyday.  If you have not seen them go here and look at all the gorgeous stuff that she and her staff put together.  I am sure that you will find something to inspire you today.

Baked Eggs in Muffin Tins

Ready to top with cheese

My students absolutely loved these!!!!  A couple of my friends told me that I should try this recipe in my class.  It is quick and easy!  Just right for a 45 minute class period.  When I started doing a little investigation about baked eggs lo and behold they are everywhere.  I missed out on this one earlier, but now I am on the bandwagon.  Perfect for a quick breakfast.  My students came up with endless ideas making these the almost perfect food.  That is what eggs are anyway – the almost perfect food!  So now go get your muffin tin buttered and cook up some eggs for breakfast.  Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days (if they last that long) and pop in the microwave for about 30 seconds.  Eggs are a great protein source that will keep you satisfied all morning.
