Breakfast Goodies

Hi Everyone!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s weekend with your honey, and maybe watching some Olympics.

Today’s recipes come as a request from my friend Brenda, in Outer Banks, North Carolina (who had snow last week – haha).. We have used this breakfast casserole for Christmas morning for years. It is so convenient to make it the night before.  Hope you enjoy it, Brenda! For good measure I also have goodies for you. Who wouldn’t like cheesecake for breakfast? This recipe came from a friend, Carol who does some catering and also works with my daughter. These are easy and scrumptious. I take requests! If you are looking for something, leave me a note in the blog and I will post it.

Coming soon: SOUP! I recently reconnected with an old friend that calls himself the Soup King! He has promised to send some great recipes. I have a few of my own. There is nothing more satisfying on a cold night like a good bowl of soup!

We are supposed to get lots more snow today (we haven’t melted off the 19 or so inches from last week yet…), so it’s a good time to test soup recipes (hurry, John – get those sent!) and make breakfast casserole!

Just had to show you a picture of who I cuddle with on these cold northern, winter days. This is Georgia (chocolate) and Murphy (black), my sweet 1 yr old labs. Happy cooking!
