Rippled Coffee Cake

Over the last month there are two things that I've been doing a lot of: baking and drinking coffee.  When Door County Coffee & Tea Co. reached out and asked if I would help promote their Coffee for a Year giveaway there was zero hesitation.  I was introduced to their product just about a year ago and I've been a huge fan ever since!

This is a sponsored post. I was provided samples of Door County Coffee's new Spring/Summer flavors, all opinions are my own.

One lucky winner will win a years supply of Door County Coffee shipped to them monthly, and 2 handcrafted Door County Coffee Stoneware mugs! And 4 second place winners will receive one months supply of Door County Coffee! I've got a few of those stoneware mugs and they are awesome.

All entries must be received by April 30th, winners announced via email May 4, 2020. Enter here: Full contest rules are available here.

And what goes better with coffee than coffee cake?  I chose this Rippled Coffee Cake recipe from Taste of Home because it started with a cake mix, which I always have on hand.  I added a bit of vanilla to the cake batter, and I also only made half the glaze.

I baked mine in a 13x9 glass pan, and it took about 35 minutes. Be sure that when you test it for doneness you're testing cake and not the brown sugar cinnamon layer.  I don't see this one lasting very long, it's absolutely delicious. Thank you so much to Jane L. for sharing her recipe!

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

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

Lemon Chicken Rice Soup

I've been making this Lemon Chicken Rice Soup for over a decade and we love it now as much as we did the first time I made it.  It's a "semi-homemade" recipe that comes together quickly but tastes like you spent all day on it. I start with chicken breast tenderloins chopped into bite sized pieces.  You can use any cut you want, you just want about 1 1/2 pounds. I cook the chicken with a little olive oil and fresh cracked black pepper in a dutch oven until the chicken is no longer pink.   Next up is carrots.  You can use thinly sliced carrots but I like to run mine over the Microplane. They get distributed so much more evenly that way.  I then add a 32oz low sodium chicken broth and cream of chicken soup and stir well. I've admitted in the past, I cannot cook rice, so the Ben's Ready Rice are one of my culinary best friends. I love the Roast Chicken flavor for this! I microwave them for about 60 seconds before adding them into the pot.  Obviously the key to thi
