Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

A little while back I inventoried my freezer and pantry and discovered that I had lots of duplicate items, among them, large canisters of quick cooking oats.   I searched out recipes to use them on the Taste of Home site, and these cookies had amazing reviews.

My only change to the recipe was to omit the nuts due to allergies in the family. I found the dough to be a little on the dry side and ended up adding a tablespoon or two of water. I used a medium cookie scoop, next time I might even go up one more size.  I baked them at 350º (convection setting) for 10 minutes.   The cookies didn't flatten out much, so I lightly pressed on them with a spatula after I took them out of the oven.

We loved these, they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, perfect for dunking.  I think they would be amazing with chocolate pudding or cheesecake pudding too.  I also think that because they're made with oats, that makes them perfectly fine to eat for breakfast, right?  :)  Thank you so much to Diane N. for sharing her recipe!

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.
