Oh So Yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies

 These are my daughter's delicious cookies and this is her recipe.

Her cookies look store bought - all the same size with two chocolate chips on top of each cookie.

Okay, I took these from the bag - the chips are smushed a bit, 
but believe me - they are yummy!

Quick and Easy Lazy Quiche - Made with Bread

~ A favorite breakfast when having overnight guests ~

I love this recipe first of all because it is delicious (yes Delicious - so delicious it is hard to eat just one piece). Other reasons for loving it is that it is easy to make, it is best made ahead of time, and it is a great way to use up leftover foods.

Lazy Quiche
  • 16 slices of bread {This does not have to be exact}
  • Optional - 1/2 cup melted butter {Actually, I add this ingredient to the recipe because my bread was SO dry. The recipe is good without butter added}
  • 8 eggs {I used 12}
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 large can diced chilies
  • Sausage, cooked {or ham or bacon, diced}
  • Green onion
  • Cheese, shredded
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
{I just sprinkle salt into the beaten eggs, but I see that similar recipes use 1/2 teaspoon salt}

Cover the bottom of a  9 x 13 inch pan with bread (broken into small pieces). (My bread was very dry, so I poured 1/2 cup melted butter over the bread) 

Mix the chilies, sausage, green onion - scatter evenly over the bread. Sprinkle cheese liberally over the bread mixture.

In a large bowl, beat eggs. Mix milk, salt and pepper into eggs - pour mixture over bread, meat, and cheese in pan.

Set in refrigerator overnight.
Bake at 350° for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Note: this is HOT right out of the oven; let it set at least 10 minutes before serving.

Really, you can change the amount of ingredients to suit your needs and to use the food you have on hand.

Here are two similar recipes:

I ate this for breakfast yesterday, 
and it really is as good as I remember it being.

Low Carb High Fat Diet - A Few of My Favorite Recipes

I love the Low-Carb-High-Fat Diet. However, I don't use it all of the time. I usually take Saturday to enjoy favorite carbohydrate meals and treats with my family.

I began with Suzanne Somers’ Fast & Easy. I read or skimmed all of here books, but I like Fast & Easy best of all.

Here are three of my favorite recipes from Fast & Easy. These are all super delicious.

 Old Fashioned Beef Stew 

~ Cheeseburger Pie ~

Cheeseburger Pie

Butter, for greasing baking dish
1 pound ground beef or turkey
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup cream
3 eggs, beaten
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 350°. Butter a 13 X 9-inch glass baking dish (I used a cast iron skillet; I think that it looks prettier on the table). Set aside. 
Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook for 3 more minutes, stirring constantly. Remove pan from heat. Add cream, eggs, and 3 cups of cheese. Stir well. Season with salt and pepper. Pour mixture into baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cheese begins to brown.

The Diet Doctor is a great LCHF website with lots of free information, encouragement, and recipes. I now use this more than Suzanne Somers’ plan.

I have not made many of the recipes here, although, I have made this Low Carb Pizza and loved it. It was even great cold the next day.
