Mickey Egg Toast & Honey Oat Bread Machine Bread

Mickey Egg Toast:
Spray small iron skillet with cooking spray.
Use a Mickey cookie cutter to cut out your bread.
Add egg in the middle of the cut out area and place the head on the side of the bread.
Bake at 325* for 10 to 12 minutes or until your egg white turns white and is cooked through.

Honey Oat Bread Machine Bread
This is a combination of the best of 2 recipes. One from Electric Bread and one from King Arthur Flour.
Large Loaf Size “Ingredients are listed in the order I add them to my bread machine pan.”
3 teaspoons saf-instant yeast (fast rise)
3 cups Unbleached All Purpose Flour
1 cup rolled oats (not quick oats)
2 Tablespoons Dry Milk
1 1/2 teaspoons salt (I like sea salt in mine.)
4 Tablespoons butter melted
3 Tablespoons honey
1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons warm water
Add all ingredients in the order of your bread machine’s manufacturer. My ingredients are listed with the yeast going in first, but check your directions. I set my machine for the rapid rise cycle and for the largest loaf size. My machine is a “Breadman.” I love how this loaf turned out, it has the goodness of the oats with a heartier denseness and the sweetness of the honey. If you want to make it from scratch without a bread machine see the King Arthur Four recipe at: www.kingauthurflour.com “Honey-Oat Pain de Mie.”
*** I haven’t tried it without the bread machine.

De”Longhi Quiche

Ingredients
7 eggs
1 pie crust or see food processor crust below
1/3 cup cream
2 TBS. olive oil
1/2 teaspoon parsley
salt and pepper
1/2 cup Swiss cheese & cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 onion
mushrooms fresh or canned
This quiche can be made in the oven or a De’Longhi. Oven pre-heat to 375* spray pan with cooking spray, put crust in bottom, whisk eggs and cream, add onion, mushrooms, parsley, and cheese. Top with foil and bake at 375* for 30 min. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 to 15 min if needed. If you add more veg. or bacon increase until quiche is only slightly jiggly when done.

Rustic Pie Crust 18″ by 3″ Made in Food Processor

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 cup butter, chilled chunked
2 large egg yolks
3 TBS. ice water
In food processor with metal or dough blade combine flour and salt. Pulse 5 times. Add the butter chunks around the bowl making sure it is evenly distributed pulse 20 times until blended. With the moter running add the egg yolks and the water through the feed tube. When the dough starts to gather and looks like tiny bread crumbs turn it out into your De’Longhi pan. Smash dough down and use the back side of your fist to press it around the pan and up the sides. You can also make a prettier crust by forming it into a ball chilling for 10 minutes and rolling it out. I wanted to finish quickly so pressing it out was much easier. The quiche can be mixed in the food processor too just rinse the dough off the blade and from the bowl. Use the egg whites left over from the crust and have 7 eggs and 2 whites in the filling. Quiches are very forgiving and you can change the filling ingredients to suit what you like and what you have available.

Oatmeal Apple & Pear Cake

30872068531_1bd8916815_z30871747471_0a6f2aedfc_z

My children attended Tec Tots Preschool part time and had their godmother as their teacher we affectingly nicknamed her Gigi.  This recipe is like the one Miss. Shirley the preschool cook made for the children.  Bethanie and Zachary had many happy memories there and so did I.  My kids are age 21 and 18 now, sadly Miss Shirley died not too long after the kids graduated preschool.  She was a wonderful cook and all the children loved her very much.  Zachary’s favorite food she made them he called chicken divine and he still asks me to make it.  Mine isn’t as good as he remembers Miss Shirley’s.  Gillian their godmother is still a great friend and wonderful influence for them and we share many happy memories and still have a great time getting our families together.

1 box Trader Joes Vanilla Cake Mix

1 cup Oats old fashioned type

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 cup honey

1/3 cup butter

2 eggs beaten

1 single serving of vanilla yogurt (5.03 oz.)

1 single serving 4oz. of apple sauce  (2 single servings or 8oz. divided 4oz. for cake & 4oz. for glaze)

1 teaspoon vanilla

juice of 1/2 lemon (whole lemon, half for cake and half for glaze)

1 large apple

1 large pear

In a large serving bowl add the applesauce and lemon juice.  Cut and peal the apple and pear into 1/4″ cubes and add to the serving bowl.  Add yogurt, beaten eggs, honey, vanilla, and butter.

Put your 1 cup of whole oats into the food processor and process until almost flour like.  If your processor is large enough combine all the other dry ingredients and mix.  Than slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry & process until dry all becomes mixed.  Pour into large greased cake pan and bake at 350′ for approximately 40 minutes.  Let cool  While the cake bakes clean out the food processor so you can mix the glaze in it.

Glaze

1 serving of apple sauce

juice of the other half of lemon

1 cup brown sugar

Add to processor bowl and process until sugar dissolves into a thin glaze.  It will thicken but stay slightly sticky.  Wonderful flavor and will keep cake from drying out.

** My 2nd. picture doesn’t show the pear, I tested the recipe with a large apple and pear last weekend.  The kids ate the last one so my cake today is only apples.

My stepmother gave me her recipe for laundry booster last year and I have been using it ever since.  I use a 1 cup measuring cup and a large Tupperware container to store the finished laundry booster.  (Mine measures 14 1/2 ” L x 12 1/4″ H)   I cut 1 bar in half and add 1 cup of each of the other ingredients and ran the food processor with the puree blade. Just slice up your Fels Naptha bar into 1 ” cubes before chopping it in the food processor.  Make batches with 1/2 bar and 1 cup of each of the others until you use all the borax and washing soda.  Mix doesn’t have to be precise.  *******(do not add the scented crystals to your food processor)*** hand stir them into the Tupperware container.**** Use separate 1 cup measuring cup for the baking soda.  Super clean the food processor bowl, blade, and lid after you finish. This recipe used 4 bars of the laundry soap, full boxes of borax and washing soda, part of the Oxi Clean and the full amount of scented crystals.  I had plenty baking soda left over.

Borax Powder

Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda

Fels Naptha Bars

Baking Soda

Oxi Clean Powder

Use the scoop in the Oxi Clean and add 1 scoop to each laundry load in the tumbler.  I also use my liquid unscented laundry soap to the normal line on my machine.   Makes everything smell fresher and is great to scrub stubborn stains and you can also soak stained items for extra stain removing power.  I love the lavender scent and lavender is supposed to repel mosquitoes, we get a lot of them here.

Honey Nut O’s Snack Mix With Cocoa Powder, Pretzel Pieces, & Honey Roasted Peanuts

30428081851_42ff414851_zMy Family loved the Diet Gone Wrong Snack Mix and they wanted me to add more peanut butter to the taste and some chocolate.  It tuned out really great, and it is Dave’s & Zachary’s favorite so far.

I used my De”Longhi multicooker but oven instructions would be the same as the Diet Gone Wrong Snack Mix.  For the De”Longhi add all the ingredients and cook on level 1 for 20 minutes with the stirring wand than move to level 2 for 10 minutes until lightly browned.

Follow the Diet Gone Wrong Ingredients except add 1 TBS. Cocoa Powder, 1 extra TBS. of Honey,  1/2 cup of honey roasted nuts, and 1/2 cup pretzel pieces, and 1 extra TBS. Peanut Butter Powder.

*****Leave the Chili Lime Seasoning out this time

I was drinking Iced Tea while making this recipe.  It isn’t part of the recipe. 🙂
