First off, I cook and prepare my meats. I used about 1/2 cup of each kind of meat.
While the bacon and sausage are cooking, I crack 12 eggs in a bowl. I add 1/2 cup of milk, salt, pepper, garlic, minced onion, chives, and shredded cheese and beat well. I like to use the Mac & Cheese blend shredded cheese from Walmart, but any kind will work. Stir in your meats.
Pour in a greased pie dish or baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until casserole is set.
Can you say delicious?! This is a great low carb breakfast if you are trying to watch your calories or if you have wrestlers in the house like me! haha!
I love the pop of color the chives give it and of course the flavor too! Will you be trying this recipe?
First, I season my cube steak with my SPG(salt, pepper, and garlic) and a little Worcestershire. I let that set for 10-15 minutes. Preheat your skillet with about a 1/4 cup of oil on medium heat. While that is doing its thing, I get my egg and flour mixtures ready for breading the steaks.
For the egg mixture, you will mix the eggs, a splash or two of Worcestershire, and a 2-3 tbsp of milk. For the flour mixture, you will mix flour, crushed sleeve of club crackers(or crackers of choice), SPG(salt, pepper, garlic), and dried minced onion. Depending on the number of steaks you are making you will want to adjust this accordingly. I typically make 4-6 steaks with this recipe.
Once your oil is ready, it’s time to start breading! Soak each steak in the egg mixture and then coat firmly with the flour/cracker mixture on both sides and get it to frying! Typically 3-4 minutes per side is all it takes. The crispier you like the outside coating the longer you will want to cook them. I like mine crispy so the crackers and minced onion get nice and crunchy!
I like to serve mine with cheesy green beans and mashed potatoes, however, we substituted the potatoes with a salad this time since my boys are watching their weight for wrestling. I have been getting lots of questions about the cheesy green beans so I will share that recipe as well. Super simple!
Cheesy Green Beans:
~2 Cans cut green beans
~5-6 slices of cheese or cubed velveeta
~1-2 Tbsp. milk
Combine all ingredients on stovetop or microwave until cheese is melted and voila!
I hope you try this recipe and love it as much as my family does!
~Bottle brush tree-I got a pack of 3 at Dollar Tree
~ Faux snow pebbles
~Hot glue-CLICK HERE for the link to my glue gun I use daily.
The first thing I did was unscrew the lid off of the snow globe and remove the plastic insert. The only reason I did that was so that my tree would fit in the globe. If you wanted to make a traditional snowblobe with liquid inside, you would need to use that piece. For this particular diy, I decided not to use liquid. Next, I took one of my brush trees and glued it to the center of the lid. Dollar Tree has several different colors and sizes of these brush trees. I am loving the blush pink color this year so I went with the pink trees.
Next, I took my little foam snow pebbles and poured some in the globe. I would say a 1/4 cup or so. Then I screwed the lid back on the globe.
I had this pedestal on hand so went ahead and glued my globe onto it.
I wanted to cover up the lid of the globe so I took some velvet ribbon trim and wrapped that around the lid followed by another layer or ric rac.
To finish off my snow globe I added a white pom pom to the top and a wood slice to the bottom.
So, what do you think? Pretty stinking’ cute, right?
I am excited to share our 2023 family tree with you all! Typically, I don’t share our family ornament tree on the blog as there isn’t as much detail that goes into this one. I save a majority of the room on this tree for all of our family’s ornaments from throughout the years. It has always been a tradition of mine to get the kiddos a new ornament each year. Also, if we travel somewhere special we like to bring home an ornament as a souvenir for our tree. Pretty soon, I am going to need a bigger tree just to be able to put all of the ornaments on! Let me tell ya…they are adding up! It makes me happy to see all of the ornaments up on the tree and it is so fun watching the kids hang them year after year. However, the more ornaments also means the kids are getting older and growing up too fast on me! I’m sure a lot of you can relate! With that, I just try to live in the moment and enjoy each and everyday with them!
I start this tree off just like I do all of my other trees I decorate. I used a neutral colored deco mesh for this tree. You can see exactly how I do this step RIGHT HERE!
Next, I add in my picks throughout my tree. I found these fun picks at Walmart and thought they were perfect for our family tree!
How fun are these bright colors!? I can’t wait to craft with these gorgeous pine cones!
Next up is the ornaments! Each year when picking out the kids’ ornaments I like to find something that resonates with each of them. It’s so fun to look back over the years at all of their ornaments! Such a fun tradition I hope they will carry on with their kiddos! If not, Grandma to the rescue! HaHa!
I have to share the easiest donut recipe with you! These are so delicious and super easy to make! The kiddos love to help with these too, which makes for a fun treat!
You will need:
~Oil for frying
~4 tbsp. butter
~1/2 cup milk
~3 cups powdered sugar
~1 tsp. vanilla
The first step is to cut the center out of the biscuits. While you are doing this step you will want to get your oil preheating. I would say around 300 degrees is about right. I like to use the measuring cup from a bottle of medicine for this step. One can of biscuits will give you 8 donut holes and 8 regular donuts.
For the glaze, you will want to add your butter and milk to a saucepan. Once the butter is melted you then whisk in your powdered sugar and vanilla.
Now it’t time to fry up your donuts! I start with my donut holes. These only take about 1 minute per side. Take them directly out of the oil and toss them in the glaze mixture. So stinkin’ yummy you guys!
Repeat this same process for the regular donuts.
How good do these look?! These are a must try for sure! You could also frost them if your family prefers that option as well.
Riggs approves and says he likes the donut holes the best!
The first thing I did was pick out the surface I wanted to use as well as piece of scrapbook paper I wanted. I am using a “Woodpile” brand frame from Hobby Lobby and some scrapbook paper I had on hand. Any kind will do. I then cut the paper to fit my frame and used mod podge to adhere it to the board.
Next, I took my jute rope and started at the bottom and worked my way up making a tree shape.
I then took more rope and lined the inside of my frame. I like to do this when my scrapbook paper doesn’t quite fit perfectly and it gives it a more finished look!
Now, it’s time to embellish! I found these cute little ornament tags at Walmart and thought they would be perfect for this project!
And of course, a bell for the top of the tree!
For the stem of my tree, I used three little pieces of sticks I had. Again, anything will work. Don’t overthink it!
Cute, fun, and easy just like we like it! Will you be giving this one a try?
