Mini Egg Muffins

Posted by on Oct 29, 2020 in blog | Comments Off on Mini Egg Muffins

In times when the weather and the news are bleak, we have been turning to coming together as a family over mealtimes to reconnect and find peace. Sometimes, though, I would prefer to enjoy the time together without all of the work! So I made a batch of these mini egg muffins to enjoy in the mornings together over coffee.  These take about 30 minutes to make a full batch, but they last all week in the fridge and just need a quick warmup (15-20 seconds) before eating! The bite-size makes them fun for all ages and I came up with a variety of flavors so everyone can enjoy their favorites. Enjoy these on e-learning mornings, weekend mornings, for a hearty afternoon...

As the weather cools down, we are here to warm you back up with some Chipotle Sweet Potato Taquitos! I love anything that combines veggies into the main course: delicious, nutritious, and super easy to make. Plus, it is easy to make a large batch of these to enjoy after sports practices or between e-learning classes. The sweet potato and corn provide a touch of sweet to the spicy chipotle peppers. Not super into spicy? Here is how you can adjust the heat: I buy a small can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. When I say small, it’s about a 4oz can. I separate the peppers onto a cutting board and put the adobo sauce (liquid gold) into a bowl. The adobo sauce...
