Sweet Potato and Chorizo Hash with Poached Eggs Recipe

Sweet Potato and Chorizo Hash with Poached Eggs Recipe

I seem to be a bit infatuated with different types of hash these days. Not the canned corned beef hash, that Hubby loves, but real homemade hash of different types. Tonight I tried to make something new, a sweet potato and chorizo hash, served with poached eggs. Before today I had never used chorizo in a recipe, but I see it all the time on cooking shows and I thought … Continue Reading →
Smoked Beef Brisket Hash and Eggs

Smoked Beef Brisket Hash and Eggs

On Labor Day Hubby smoked a beef brisket. Oh my, it was so delicious! The brisket has that beefiness that we all love and a healthy dose of smoke that makes it even better. Brisket is usually a pretty large cut of meat though which means we had plenty of leftovers. I tried to come up with some creative uses for the leftovers during the week and this Smoked Beef … Continue Reading →

Homemade Breakfast Burritos – Quick Freezer to Microwave Meal

Hubby likes to eat breakfast, but not when he first wakes up. He prefers to get to work and relax a few minutes with something to eat and a cup of coffee before the work day starts.

These are meant to make ahead, freeze, and then take out one by … Continue Reading →

The one that irks me the most is “cage-free” because the chickens can still be very cramped but just not in cages. Organic … Continue Reading →

Grandma Eggs Please: Throwback Thursday

It is time for Throwback Thursday again. This week I thought I would share a story from my childhood that I’m sure some of you can relate to. My Grandma Hoelker is no longer with us sadly, but I have so many wonderful memories of her. She was not only that kind and comforting type of Grandma, but she was also a lot of fun. I still miss her dearly. … Continue Reading →
What to do with leftover hard-boiled eggs from Easter

What to do with leftover hard-boiled eggs from Easter

Hubby adores hard-boiled eggs, I think he would eat a whole dozen in one setting even if no one stopped him. He loves deviled eggs too in the same way, like the Bacon Deviled Eggs I wrote about. I finally have started eating hard-boiled eggs since my surgery because they are a good source of protein for me, but I don’t eat them on their own, I like them in … Continue Reading →
How to Prepare Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

How to Prepare Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

It’s time to start hard boiling those eggs so you can get them dyed for Easter! Your eggs do not have to have green or chalky yolks at all either – I promise you if you follow these instructions they will be perfect! First – use older eggs. I do not mean expired, just not super-duper-just-out-of-the-chicken-fresh. Eggs that are a little older do better for hard boiling. Place one dozen … Continue Reading →
