Biscuits and Gravy

Not bad for feeding my little one apples at the same time.
(Makes 9 biscuits)
2 1/4 cups Original Bisquick mix
2/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Stir ingredients together until soft dough forms. Place on surface generously sprinkled with Bisquick mix.

Knead 10 times. Roll 1/2-inch thick. Cut with 2 1/2-inch cutter. I used a heart shaped one...ok I just got it, but isn't it cute? 

Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
Is it time for breakfast yet?

How to Boil an Egg

All these years, I've boiled eggs the same way.  But, I've just learned a money saving way to get the same results.  Cover eggs with an inch of water.  Toss in some salt, and get to a boil. Once the water is boiling, cover, and shut the stove off. Set the timer for 10 minutes. Run eggs under cold water to cool.

Philly Pizza Frittata

6oz.(3/4 of 8-oz. pkg.)PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
6 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp.each driedbasil and oregano
2 Tbsp.butter
1-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped green peppers
24 slices OSCAR MAYER Pepperoni, coarsely chopped
Beat cream cheese, eggs, salt and seasonings until well blended.
Melt butter in 10-inch ovenproof skillet on medium heat. Add vegetables; cook and stir 5 min. or until crisp-tender. Stir in pepperoni and cream cheese mixture. Cover; cook 5 min. or until center is almost set.
Heat broiler. Uncover frittata. Broil, 6 inches from heat, 2 to 3 min. or until golden brown.
Or, if you don't have an oven proof pan, like me, you can stir together all the ingredients and bake at 400 degrees for 25- 30 minutes. I also ate mine with salsa. Very good.

Steak and Bleu Cheese Salad

Lunch crept up on me again, and so I tossed this together real fast.

Here we go, a 4 ingredient salad:
Steak sliced, cooked medium
Bleu Cheese crumbles
Boston lettuce leaves
Ranch dressing

I got everything from Costco except the Ranch dressing. 

You can get the steak already medium rare in a package. Throw it on the skillet for a minute, and viola!

I really wish I had the patience to add some corn to this salad, but alas, I was way too hungry!
Leave me a comment, and tell me what you would have added!

Baby Leggings in 5 Minutes or less

Sewright -Blog by Ruth Yoder
 These are the cutest leggings! And soo easy to make.

 All you need is:
1 pair of socks. I used Knee socks, so my 6 month old little girl will be able to wear these into next year.
Sewing machine.
Thread. (Thought is should mention it.)

 Cut off the toe and the heel sections on both pairs.
 I cut through both at the same time. No time to waste!

 Toss the toe and heel sections, but keep the middle portion and top.

 Fold wrong sides in so you have a cuff.
 Lay with both raw edges facing the same direction.
 Now put your cuff around the long portion of the sock so that all raw edges are facing out as in the picture.
 Pin...not so hard, right?
 Now slip the sock around your machine arm. I took off the extra table surface on my machine. This will stretch the sock while you sew.  Sew around a half inch, pulling while you go around. This is so your threads will not break when you stretch it to put it on.

 I pinked my edges, but you don't really need to, as these socks do not usually unravel.
And here you are. Finished. Now go see how cute they look on your little one.

Spicy Pasta de la creme

Faith and Neil just introduced me to Habanero Cheese from Costco this past week. Boy, is it REALLY good, and Hot.  I thought I'd put some in my lunch yesterday. 

1 Link of Italian Sausage, cooked
8oz elbow macaroni
1/3 Cup Frozen peas
1/4 inch slice of Habanero Cheese off a large brick
1/4 Cup of Whipping cream
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp of Frozen mixed Onions and peppers
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cook macaroni to package directions, drain and keep warm.
Put Peas and onions in a microwave safe dish, (I use Pyrex clear measuring glasses)and add enough water to just cover. Microwave 2 1/2 minutes or until hot. 
In a small pot, add whipping cream, butter, and habanero cheese over medium heat.  Stir occasionally until cheese melts.
Taste sauce, then add salt and pepper.
Slice sausage. Add Macaroni, sausage, peas and onions to your cream sauce. Stir and enjoy!
