These Applesauce Biscuits make the perfect back to school breakfast,  lunch box snack, or an easy after school snack.

My girls have been back to school for almost a week… however this is their first full week of school. It has gone great! They are back into a routine, doing homework, and getting to bed on time. In the mornings my job as a mom is too make sure they have a good breakfast and I also pack them a lunch. My mornings are pretty easy. I enjoy making breakfast for them. I enjoying sitting down with them. After breakfast is over, I usually pack them their lunch for the day.

I am always looking for new ideas, things to make or buy to put into their lunches. I try and pack healthy items. I am now putting at least 2 fruits into their lunches. I haven’t always done this. If I pack a fruit,  and then some of these babies they get more fruit. Yea for eating healthy!

These applesauce biscuits are perfect! I can whip a batch for breakfast and then throw one in their lunch the next day for lunch.

Cookies for Breakfast?

My daughter loves raisins. However… I rarely buy them. I don’t why… I just don’t. I bought some and decided to make these delicious cookies. I am so glad that I did. They turned out great!

These Breakfast cookies are a simple cookie. They are a crunchy cookie. If you like raisins in your cookies… these breakfast cookies are a must make. They are best with a glass of milk.

One Year Ago.. My Weekly Menu with Homemade Enchilada Sauce 

Boston Cream Croissants

Boston Cream Croissants

Boston Cream Croissants

Wether you are having a formal breakfast or an informal brunch… these Boston Cream Croissants are a delicious treat!

I have never had them before… and they were really luscious { which is quite the funny definition… extremely pleasing to the sense of taste.} But it is very true!!

Boston Cream Croissants

The color alone makes me happy… yellow pudding and brown chocolate. These were not the mini croissants. I went to several stores to find the mini ones… no luck. I didn’t want to order them… so here you go.

Boston Cream Croissants

By Carrie Perrins

*adapted from Simple Desserts

  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 package vanilla instant pudding and pie filling
  • 1 cup thawed cool whip
  • 12 miniature croissants

 

  • 1 square Baker’s Unsweetened Chocolate
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. water

Directions:

  1. Pour milk into large bowl.
  2. Add pudding mix.
  3. Beat with wire whisk for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Gently stir in cook whip.

Split croissants horizontally and fill with whipped topping mixture. Refrigerate.

  1. Melt chocolate and butter in small sauce pan on low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat
  2. Stir in powdered sugar, and water until smooth.

Drizzle chocolate over tops of croissants. I poured my chocolate into a ziploc baggie, with a tiny hole cut in one corner of the bag. Then I drizzled the chocolate.  I wanted the lines to be smaller… but oh well. Next time… I won’t cut such a big hole.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Boston Cream Croissants

I think I am in heaven. Don’t these Boston Cream Croissants look just dreamy?? I think so. I loved making them and eating them.

They were easy… and delightful.

Croissants… I almost have to look this word up every time to spell it correctly.

A buttery flaky pastry.

A crescent shape.

Stuffed with boston cream.

Topped with chocolate. You can’t go wrong.

Boston Cream Croissants

Here is a little story {not really related to the croissants}… My husband and I waited 3 years to have kids. He was going to school full time, working full time. I was having some medical issues, and working part time. We talked about children in bed one night. We actually agreed upon a name for a little boy… Boston Adam Perrins.   Boston… not for the city,  but just because I liked the name. Adam was a family name.

Well…this mama had no boys! I wanted to name my child this soooo bad.  It never happened. However… I still love the name Boston!

Any Boston’s out there?? Looking for a boy’s name… Boston is a good one.

Boston Cream Croissants

I really liked this recipe. It was simple and very luscious.

Apple Orange Syrup

Apple Orange Syrup

Apple Orange Syrup

I think I am going to have this Apple Orange Syrup… again and again.

I wanted to come up with something different for breakfast. I am trying to cut some calories and eat a little bit healthier.

However, I love breakfast foods. I love pancakes, waffles, french toast. In our home we have a hot breakfast several times a week.

Apple Orange Syrup

I tried this recipe… and loved it. I usually don’t eat apples with my pancakes. Its straight syrup, but these apples added a great crunch and some fruit to my breakfast. Yea… for more fruit!

 

Apple Orange Syrup

By Carrie Perrins

*adapted from Taste of Home’s Quick Cooking Annual Recipes

  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1-2 Tbsp. cornstarch

In a small saucepan, combine the ingredients. Bring to a boil and stir constantly for about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat. Serve immediately.

 

Apple Orange Syrup

 

I was thinking about this syrup. It has only 23 calories per 2 tablespoons, verses the regular syrup which has close to 200 calories, plus the corn syrup, sugar, etc.

Less calories… less weight… yea!!

 

Apple Orange Syrup

 

 

And the other great thing… is you usually have these items on hand. You can whip this up in no time at all. Less than 5 minutes… to a healthier breakfast.

Yea… it make look a little thicker than it should, but I like it that way. To make it thinner… don’t use as much cornstarch.

 

 

Apple Orange Syrup

 

This would make a great addition to a brunch, a family breakfast, or even for Mother’s Day.

It is simple, unique, and healthy!

Omelet Pie

Omelet Pie

Having Easter Brunch??

This Omelet Pie will make a great addition to any breakfast, brunch menu, or dinner table.

The other day I was thinking to myself I want to make a egg cake {aka pie}  for the Easter Egg Hunt. It never happened. I couldn’t find the perfect recipe. In my deep research for the perfect egg pie, I stumbled upon this one. I tried it. It didn’t work out. The bottom was to mushy. I tried it again, with less salsa. It worked great!

Omelet Pie

This Omelet Pie is easy to make. I love how you blend up the sour cream and eggs. Then pour it right from your blender into the pie pan and bake.

Here is a little truth about me… I don’t make omelets. I can never get them to work out. I always make them to runny, flip them over to soon, and then burn them. On the other hand, my husband makes a great omelet. But… now that I have this recipe in my collection. I can now make a mean omelet. Omelet pie that is!

Here is the recipe…

Omelet Pie

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack Cheese-shredded
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese-shredded
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Tomato slices, avocado, and fresh cilantro.

Instructions

  1. Pour the salsa into a lightly greased 10-inch pie plate. Sprinkle with cheeses; set aside. In a blender, blend together the eggs and sour cream until smooth.. Pour over cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean. Let stand five minutes before serving. Garnish with tomato, avocado, and fresh cilantro.

Another great thing about this pie is that with individual omelets it takes along time to make them. This way you can serve it up all at once for your entire family.  Add whatever toppings you love!
