Pumpkin Pie Tartlets


Around Halloween, Jake started asking for pumpkin pie.   He's pretty picky in the food department, so when he asks for something, I try to accommodate him if at all possible.   Tim does not eat pumpkin pie, and I had my heart set on chocolate pie, so when Rosie posted this recipe I grabbed it up because it was so simple.

I have to admit, I was a little nervous pouring the batter right into the cups, but it worked out fine.  Mine were not 100 calorie since I grabbed reg evaporated milk instead of the fat free kind.    There also had to have been a huge run on gingersnaps in my area, and I ended up with cinnamon graham crackers instead.  

These are a nice take on pie if you are looking to save calories on the crust, but I missed it.    Jake ate the whipped cream/cookie mixture off the top, poked at the pie and tried one bite.   It had nice flavor, nice consistency and unmolded out of the cups in a flash.     :)

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Speedy Shepherd's Pie- Taste of Home 100 Family Meals cookbook

How often does your family eat meals together?  My husband worked second shift for over a decade, and it was a rare occasion for us all to sit down at the same time and eat.    Once he went to a better schedule, mealtime moved back to the table.   This past fall, we bought a house, and in the chaos of moving, we drifted away again.    Son likes to eat in front of the computer or phone, husband in front of the tv.   I'm guilty too, sometimes the jigsaw puzzle I'm working on can render the dining room table unusable for days. Looking for inspiration, I turned to Taste of Home's 100 Family Meals .  As you can see by the number of pages I marked, there's lots to be found! There are suggestions for entire meals, complete with a list of groceries you need.    It's well categorized for easy mixing and matching too.       The first recipe I chose was Speedy Shepherd's Pie.    It's a fun twist on the traditional version, using taco seasoned meat as the base.
