Whole Wheat Quiche

We love eggs at our house. I love adding veggies like spinach and zucchini to eggs. 
This whole wheat crusted quiche recipe is a winner for being easy to prepare, nutritious and a family hit even for the younger ones. 
It wasn't a hit the second time I made it with asparagus... lesson learned.

Here's the first time I made it, including the addition of leftover Christmas ham, shredded zucchini and thin-sliced red onion (and Smart Balance light and almond/coconut milk as substitutes).


For the Crust, combine in oven dish:
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup melted butter (or substitute)
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp milk (almond/coconut blend)

Once crust ingredients are moistened, press into the dish bottom and high up the sides.

In a separate bowl, mix together the filling:
1 1/2 cups milk (almond/coconut blend)
4 large eggs
Salt and Pepper to taste

Pour filling into raw crust and add any chopped spinach, zucchini, ham, onion, bell pepper, etc.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 30-40 minutes or until set in center.

Pollo Asado

My husband has a new favorite meal, pollo asado. Luckily for me, I have a favorite store, Sprouts, that sells marinated chicken "pollo asado" style and it is very decently priced. I get enough for the 2 of us (about 1.5 lbs) for about $5 and it is worth it.

Sometimes I like making everything from scratch, and sometimes I don't. This is a great meal for one of those "don't" days.

Wassail - Warm Drink

Wassail is a hot, nutritious drink with an aroma and flavor that fills the house and soul. This is my very favorite Christmas-time drink.

For a group of 15-20 people, slowly heat on stove top or crock pot: 64 ounces apple juice 64 ounces orange juice (fresh squeezed is amazing) 3-4 cinnamon sticks (to taste) 1/2 tsp ground cloves
Heat over the stove until perfectly steamy. Store any leftovers in the fridge and reheat on the stove top or in the microwave.
This drink makes a great pair with Snickerdoodle cookies.

Honey Ginger Chex Mix

This is my new favorite chex mix recipe. It turned out delicious...just the perfect amount of sweet and still a bit healthy.

The recipe came from the back of the Honey Nut Chex cereal box and I made a few alterations to work with the ingredients that I had and wanted to include.

In a large microwaveable bowl mix together:
6 cups Honey Nut Chex
1 cup dried banana chips
1-2 cups almonds (I used sliced almonds)

In a small microwaveable bowl, combine and heat uncovered for 1-2 minutes or until boiling:
1/4 cup Butter or Margarine (I used Smart Balance Light)
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Brown sugar
1 tsp Ginger

Pour Honey mixture over cereal mixture and stir until evenly coated. Microwave uncovered for 4 minutes, stirring and scraping the sides every minute.

1 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup cranberries or raisins

Microwave for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring every minute.
Spread out onto wax paper and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.
After mine cooled, I added dark chocolate c…
