These Easy Ham and Egg Cups are a great way to prepare breakfast quickly while still serving something substantial!
I saw a picture of something similar on Pinterest, but the site didn't actually have a recipe, so I made up my own!
Note: I made sure to instruct you to use nitrite/nitrate free ham, but please be aware that I still don't recommend consuming commercially made lunch meat on a regular basis.
I love holidays! Getting together with extended family, eating, relaxing, eating some more. It's great fun!
What I don't love is figuring out what exactly we're going to eat.
For once in my life I thought ahead! July 4th is next week, and I thought it would be lovely to put together a menu that is healthy, easy, and most importantly, delicious!
Here's what I came up with for a healthy July 4th menu. Click on the photos to be taken to the recipes.
What would you add? Do you have any special July 4th menu traditions?
One thing I am really bad about is getting too comfortable in the kitchen. I get on kicks making certain things all the time because they're easy, because my brain doesn't want to figure out something new, because most of the recipes I see in magazines or on Pinterest look too time-consuming or too expensive, and because I honestly just want to get dinner over with so I can get on with my evening.
I think if I tried something new, though, I might actually enjoy the process of making dinner and eating it, instead of just “getting it over with”. So as soon as this post is written, I'll be heading out to the kitchen to make quinoa stuffed peppers.
None of us have ever had quinoa before, and we've only had stuffed peppers once. I'm really hoping we like the quinoa, because it will be a really inexpensive way to add some protein to our meals. Who says you have to eat meat at every meal? I've been cutting it out of our meals a whole lot lately. We honestly haven't felt like we were missing anything, but it's saving a whole lot of money.
Anyway, why in the world do I have this Pinterest board called “Recipes to try” if I'm never going to try them? Time to stop procrastinating!
What new thing are you going to try this week? If you need some inspiration you can head over and check out my pinterest board!
It seemed like everything I could think of to make, though, was stuff that had sugar in it like muffins, granola bars (what good is a granola bar without chocolate chips in it? 🙂 ), and other things like that.
I wanted some type of crackery something to feed them, so I paid a visit to my good friend, Mr. Google.
This Homemade Cheez-Its recipe called my name, so I printed it off, and headed to the kitchen.
This was so easy, and what I love is the fact that I know exactly what I'm feeding my kids! Cheese, flour, butter, salt and water are the sole ingredients of this lovely recipe.
I know you're tired of hearing me ramble on, and are ready for me to just get on with it, right?

I used Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar Cheese for ours, and the whole family has been raving about them!
This recipe is definitely a keeper!
Recipe from ReadyMade.com
Melt coconut oil and honey.
Add oats and almonds and stir until coated evenly.
Spread into a thin layer on a baking sheet.
Bake at 300 degrees for 12 minutes.
Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
Well, here it is!
1 cup milk
3/4 cup whole wheat berries (purchase here)
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Directions: In a glass blender, blend milk and wheat berries for 4 minutes on high. Add baking powder, brown sugar, eggs, and salt and blend for 1 minute on low. Pour batter onto hot griddle and cook until bubbles form on the surface. Flip pancakes and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until golden brown.
Can I just say that this is great?! I loved the fact that I used only 3/4 cup of my wheat berries rather than a whole bag like I used when I made bread! The wheat berries ground up so much better when they were combined with a liquid, and the pancakes were delicious! I also loved the fact that I could just dump everything into the blender and pour the batter directly onto the griddle.
I'll definitely be making these again!
