  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  •  3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  •  2/3 cup chicken broth
  • 2 eggs

  1. Prepare Basic Crepes recipe according to recipe directions. Separate with wax paper and keep warm until ready to serve.
  2. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside. Reserve about 1 tablespoon drippings, add 1 tablespoon butter, and saute mushrooms.
  3. In a separate saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Whisk in 1/4 cup flour, stirring constantly, until a smooth paste is formed. Gradually stir in 1 cup milk, stirring constantly until a smooth thick gravy is formed. Add bacon, mushrooms, spinach, parsley, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Let cook until somewhat thick, about 10 minutes.
  4. In saucepan bring broth to a boil. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and lemon juice. Temper eggs and broth together whisking constantly so as to cook, but not to scramble the eggs. (Cooking eggs to 170 degrees F). Again, salt and pepper to taste.

    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
    1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.
    2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
    3. Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.Laugh, Learn, and Liven up your Taste Buds!

FOODIE FRIDAY – (enjoy a
new recipe to try this weekend!)

According to the website askmen.com, the way to impress a woman after a night of fun is to impress her with breakfast in bed: http://www.askmen.com/sports/foodcourt/foodcourt13.html Just think, you could make up this hash brown casserole the night before and pop it in the oven when you wake up to brush your teeth. Wa-la! You’re her favorite new man!!!



Hash Brown Casserole

  •       3 tablespoons butter
  •         1 small yellow onion, chopped
  •         4 cups frozen shredded hash browns
  •         1 pound bulk sausage
  •         2 1/4 cups whole milk
  •         8 large eggs
  •         1 teaspoon salt
  •         1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  •         1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  •         2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  •         8 cups cubed Italian bread, crusts removed
  •         2 cups (1/2 pound) grated cheddar
  •         2 cups (1/2 pound) freshly grated Parmesan 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a deep 13 by 9-inch casserole dish with vegetable oil spray. Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the onion and saute over medium-low heat until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the hash browns and break apart. Saute until soft, about 5 minutes. In a second fry pan, saute the sausage, breaking apart large clumps. When the sausage is cooked through, remove it from pan. In a large mixing bowl, combine the milk, eggs, salt, pepper, nutmeg and mustard, briskly to blend.

To assemble, spread the onions and hash browns evenly at the bottom of the greased dish. Place the bread cubes evenly on top of has browns. With a slotted spoon distribute sausage as the third layer. Pour the milk and egg mixture over these layers. Add Parmesan as the next layer, while then adding the Cheddar. Bake the casserole, uncovered for 45 to 50 minutes, until puffed and golden brown.

SUCH A RELAXING SUNDAY – (enjoy a way to unwind.

It’s the most important meal of the day, prepare a hearty breakfast for your love. Breakfast in bed is one of the ultimate ways to pamper someone, but you don’t need to be a master chef to make a beautiful and delicious meal.

Plan Ahead

The biggest secret to a perfect meal is not necessarily found in exotic ingredients or complicated recipes–it’s in planning ahead. Things to do first:

  • Decide on a menu.
  • Make a list of everything you need: ingredients, pans, tableware, and serving utensils.
  • Make a list of everything you can make the day before: Veggies and meat for omelets can be chopped and bagged; batter for muffins, pancakes, crepes, or scones will do just fine overnight under plastic wrap; and the coffee grounds can sit in the

It’s All in the Details

Little things that can make a big difference:

  • If you’re serving juice, make it fresh squeezed.
  • Buy the best-quality tea and serve in a nice teapot, or grind fresh coffee beans and serve in a French press.
  • Garnish the plate with fresh fruit and herbs.
  • Pull out the linen napkins, unearth the cups with saucers, and find attractive containers to use as a cream pitcher, a sugar bowl, and a vase.Here’s a video on how to make 2 different types of strata. You can make them the night before for easy popping!

I have no idea why, but this title of a book my friend told me about today  made me laugh and laugh!!! And the other day I met someone that owns a bed and breakfast in Wauconda.  Her name is Sherry and it’s the cutest little place! I think she should start having murder mystery weekends and they can be called The Quiche of Death. Breakfast = quiche = get it???

Here is Sherry’s place:


The Quiche of Death – by MC Beaton
Putting all her eggs in one basket, Agatha Raisin gives up her successful PR firm, sells her London flat, and samples a taste of early retirement in the quiet village of Carsely. Bored, lonely, and used to getting her way, she enters a local baking contest. Despite the fact that Agatha has never baked a thing in her life, she is sure the pie she has secretly bought from an upper-crust London quicherie will make her the toast of the town. But her recipe for social advancement sours when the judge not only snubs her entry – but falls over dead!

Broccoli Quiche Recipe

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Over medium-low heat melt butter in a large saucepan. Add onions, garlic and broccoli. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are soft. Spoon vegetables into crust and sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Combine eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in melted butter. Pour egg mixture over vegetables and cheese.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until center has set.
