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.

White Rolls and Cinnamon Rolls - Bread Machine Dough cycle

I always have assumed that the best white rolls have dairy ingredients, but I tried this recipe for Easter ( I made them into resurrection rolls with a marshmallow in the center) and they turned out delicious. My husband and I both agreed that they would make great cinnamon rolls, so I tried it today and was not disappointed.  My favorite part is that the dough is made in the bread machine. That way, the prep time/active time is cut down, which is a winner for my life.
Here are my two new recipes for White Rolls and Cinnamon Rolls.
White Dinner Rolls (bread machine – dough cycle) Place ingredients into bread machine pan: 1 cup water 2 Tbsp margarine 1 egg 3 ¼ cups unbleached all purpose flour ¼ cup white sugar 1 tsp salt 3 tsp active dry yeast
After dough is done (1.5 hours), pour out of the bread pan and onto clean surface. Divide into rolls and place into greased (coconut oil) pan. Brush tops of rolls with coconut oil (optional).  Let rise in a warm place for 30-45 min. Bake at 375 degrees F…
