Casting the whole of your care (all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all) on Him, for He cars for you…. 1 Peter 5:7

It is back to school time after the summer break.  That usually means rushed mornings for most families.  A daughter of a friend recently asked for help with breakfast ideas for her daughter.  Here are a few ideas that you can prep ahead and have ready for grab-n-go or breakfasts the kids can heat up and eat themselves.  Hope these help.

To prepare you can scramble several eggs and place in the refrigerator.  They will keep well for 3-4 days.  Cook a lot of sausage, ham or bacon ahead and keep in the refrigerator.  To make egg rounds for muffin or biscuit sandwiches:  mix eggs up like you would for scrambled eggs.  Take a tuna can or other small can with the top and bottom removed.  Spray with nonstick spray and pour some egg mixture into the ring.  Remove ring after egg is set, turn over and cook through and you will have a perfectly round egg for your sandwich.

  1.  Cooked (buy precooked or cook  your own) sausage links.  Heat links in microwave and place in a hot dog bun.  Top with scrambled eggs if desired.
  2. Place scrambled eggs along with cooked meat of choice (ham, bacon, sausage, chorizo) and cheese of choice (american, cheddar, mozzarella, provolone) in a flour tortilla.  Wrap up burrito style and wrap each in a paper towel.  Place in a ziploc bag and freeze.  Remove one and heat in the microwave (with paper towel) for 45 sec. -1 min depending on your microwave.  Serve sour cream or salsa for dipping if desired.
  3. Make your favorite corn bread recipe or use boxed quick mix.  Place 1 1/2 inch piece of cooked sausage or hot dog in each compartment of a muffin tin.  Fill with cornbread mixture and bake according to package directions.  Freeze or refrigerate and reheat in the microwave.
  4. Make you own muffin sandwiches and freeze.  Toast the muffins first and then top with Canadian bacon, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs or egg round, cheese.  Freeze or refrigerate and reheat in microwave.
  5. Pre-make your yogurt and fruit parfait.  Do not add the crunchy topping until ready to serve.
  6. Waffle sandwiches.  Use toaster waffles or make a large batch and top with peanut butter, chocolate hazelnut spread, jams, eggs, meats, etc.  Put two waffles together for your sandwich.
  7. Egg muffins = mix together eggs, meat (ham, bacon, sausage, etc.), cheese and veggies if desired:  mushrooms, onions, peppers, broccoli, etc.  Pour into greased muffin tins and bake until set.  Freeze or refrigerate and reheat in the microwave.
  8.  Make ahead oatmeal.  Mix oatmeal with milk or water, add fruits and refrigerate in a microwave safe mug.  Heat in the microwave the next morning.
  9.  Bagel sandwiches:  Toast the bagels and leave at room temp in ziploc bag so they won’t dry out.  Add the cream cheese and/or other toppings the next morning.  Good choices:  cream cheese with strawberries or bananas.
  10. Make silver dollar pancakes (or buy frozen) and warm in microwave. Portion out syrup or preserves for dipping.
  11. Pack fresh fruit in small cups or bowls – serve with toothpicks so no utensils needed.  Yogurt for dipping. Serve cheese cubes also for some protein.
  12. French Toast sticks – make your own or buy frozen.  Portion out syrup or preserves for dipping.
  13. Scotch eggs – hard boil eggs and wrap with sausage.  Bake until sausage is cooked through.  Refrigerate and then reheat in the microwave.
  14. Egg salad sandwiches – not just for lunch.  Serve on toast, bagels and English muffins.  Add in crumbled cooked bacon for extra flavor.

Hope these help for those rushed days.  Most of these are also great for Grownups in the household.  These also make great after school snacks.

So God created man in his own image,in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.  Genesis 1:27

We have had over 100 lbs. of rice donated to the Manna Meal Free meal Program.  I tested a new recipe to help use some of the rice.  Since we cook for about 200 meals each week, it is really a pain to have to cook rice in the traditional way on top of the stove.  I took a recipe that we have for using uncooked macaroni and letting the casserole sit overnight and replaced the macaroni with rice.  Since rice takes more cooking liquid I increased the liquid.  It came out great.  The variations on this are endless.

2 cups uncooked rice

4 cups water or stock

2 cups of:  chicken, ham, broccoli or mixed vegetables

2 10 oz. cans of cream soup:  mushroom, celery, chicken or even tomato soup (if using large cans use 1/2 of a 50 oz. can of soup)

2-3 cups of shredded cheese or 1/2 lb. processed cheese such as Velveeta-cubed

4 hard boiled eggs – optional and I did not use them

salt and pepper to taste

Could add other seasonings as desired:  garlic, onion, chili powder (tomato soup)

Mix all ingredients together and place in a 9 x 13 pan or half sheet pan.  Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.  Take out and uncover the next day.  Bake at 325′ for 1 hour.  You may want to stir this after about 30 minutes.  You can top this with additional cheese or bread crumbs the last 10-15 minutes if desired.  This serves 12-15.

This multiplies well.  If you add meat this could be a main dish, with vegetables a great side.

Variations:

1.   Rice with diced tomatoes and broth to make the amount of liquid needed: onions, chili powder and peppers for Spanish style rice.

2.  Rice with chicken broth for the liquid, cream of chicken soup, cooked chicken.  Could add broccoli, peas/carrots, or mixed vegetables for main dish.

3.  Rice with ham and ham broth for the liquid, cream of mushroom soup.  Could add broccoli, green beans, mushrooms, etc.

4.  Rice with water for the liquid, cream of mushroom soup.  Add broccoli and/or mushrooms for a great side dish.

5.  Rice with water for liquid.  Bacon and/or sausage, chopped hard boiled eggs.  Add onions, peppers, mushrooms, etc. for a breakfast style casserole.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Psalm 139:  13-14

Sorry I have not posted in a long time, but I have had some serious health issues for a year.  I am back and hope to share more recipes, hints/tips, etc. on this blog.  I was able to get the second cookbook finished while I was not feeling so well.  It has a lot of the recipes from the first cookbook with about 120 new recipes added.  The book contains 300 recipes.  I have personally prepared each of these recipes.  We have a Facebook page at:  Family Favorites II:  Second Helpings.

The books are $15.00 and with shipping they are $18.00.  If you order more than one I can calculate the shipping.  The profits from the book are donated to a local free meal program. I also have set up Paypal, so you can pay online, mail a check or money order.  If you mail payment the book will not be shipped until I receive payment.

Some of favorite recipes in the book are:  Baked French Toast, Cream Cheese Danish, Herbal Cheesecake,  Cottage Cheese Salad,  Carrot Dressing Casserole, Bean Enchilada Bake, Amish Friendship Bread, Candy Bar Cheesecake, Quick Peanut Butter Fudge and White BBQ Sauce.

These would make unique Christmas Presents.  I will sign the books as a free bonus.

Acts 20:32  I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

I have been on a journey to complete my second Cookbook.  I wrote the first one when our children left home and then kept calling back asking how to make _______.  I decided that the best way to get everything together was to print a Cookbook.   To my delight and surprise people wanted to buy some of the books.  After I sold out people were still asking for cookbooks. 

I am constantly searching for new recipes and asking people to share their favorites with me.  I starting compiling recipes for another cookbook almost three years ago.  It is finally done, has been printed and has arrived.  This new book has a lot of the favorites from the first book, but it also has almost 125 NEW recipes.  This book has 300 recipes that have all been personally prepared by ME. 

My wonderful daughter has developed an ecommerce site and has set up a PayPal Account if you would like to purchase one.  There is a tab at the top of this page called:  Adele’s Cookbook.  The cost is $15.00 plus $3.25 for shipping/handling.  If you want multiple copies you can message or email me for the shipping costs.  They are also available for wholesale rates.

After I recover the costs for the printing at least 1/2 (if not all) of the profits will be donated to charity.  I hope some of these recipes that have become our Family Favorites might become some of your family’s favorites also.  Believe me, most of them you will want to have Second Helpings.
