Homemade Burger Buns

Lately, grocery stores have been a game of hide and seek, or a scavenger hunt when it comes to trying to find specific items, especially baked goods. One of the dinners I had planned included burger buns, which happened to be one of the out of stock items, of course! So I searched all over…

Jalapeño Pimento Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

Post-holiday meats tend to take up space in the fridge, and there’s only so many ham sammies we can bear! So I try to mix things up when it comes to using up all the meats and leftover goodies. If you haven’t caught on, I like to make one-dish or one-pot meals here at Joyfullydwell….

Meal Prep English Muffin Sammies

Anyone else get in those prepping moods? We try to prep foods for the week on Sunday evenings, but we got a tad behind and that didn’t happen… life, ya know. This morning I put together some freezer English muffin breakfast sammies. Bacon and a cracked egg in a muffin tin for 30 minutes at…

Delicious Mini Frittatas

I’ve made this recipe before, but it’s so good it bears repeating. It is one of those breakfast options that is yummy alone or can even be paired with a side salad to be eaten for lunch.  They also freeze really well, so they’re a great option to make in bulk to store in your freezer….

Let’s Eat! 2 Week mealplan

Here’s my 14 day meal plan consisting of mostly organic / “clean-ish” eating options. This feeds a family of 5-6 (sometimes with leftovers depending on how hungry everyone is!). My goal is to get the cost down, but this currently totals around $250 (shopping mostly sale items and/or using cartwheel coupons when shopping at Target)….

Yummy Coconut Pancakes

If you’ve been following my blog, I think it’s pretty well established that breakfast foods are my most favorite.  Like my good man Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation says “There has never been a sadness that can’t be cured by breakfast food.”  Such wisdom, Ron, such wisdom. Ingredients: 4 eggs 1 cup milk (coconut and…

Ham and Egg Cups

Here’s a simple recipe for a hearty, filling breakfast that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your home or easily taken with you to eat on the road.  It can also keep you on track with your diet by being made low fat by simply using egg whites and low fat cheese.  You can…

Oooooh Baby, Baby… Yummy Dutch Babies…

Please tell me you sang that title as you read it?  I was first introduced to German pancakes at my last baby shower, so making the mini version, aka “Dutch Babies” just seemed fitting.  This delectable pancake is almost like a thicker version of my favorite pancake the French crepe. Ingredients: 6 eggs 1/4 cup butter, melted…

Peppers ‘n Eggs

We eat eggs daily around here, and sometimes the two options of scrambled or fried gets a little old.  I like to try to change it up a bit with veggies, but don’t have the time to plate omelets or whip up a quiche for 5 when we’re rushing to get out the door every morning….

Egg in a Basket

Growing up, this was one of my favorite breakfast dishes. This must be a Southern thing, because when I moved to California, and mentioned this breakfast to my roommates, they all looked at me crazy! But as soon as I made it, they all fell in love, and constantly asked me to make this again…
