Crustless Quiche: Ham and 3 Cheeses

I have seen quiche mentioned and thought, “eww, sounds gross”.  Little did I realize, it’s like an omelette in a pan!  Okay, so maybe my version is.  I went snooping around the recipe websites (and some from here), and I found one that seemed possible for my amateur skills and came up with my own […]

Super Simple BBQ Chicken: 3 ingredient ease

Potato Loaf

This is exactly what it sounds like: a potato loaf.  I was experimenting with side dishes and thought this would be a fun one to try. 2 baking potatoes, scrubbed clean 1/2 stick of butter 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1/2 red onion, minced Seasonings of your choice (I added cracked black pepper, basil, and parsley) […]
