We are having “Arctic Chill.” It got ccccold last night and right now it’s minus 11. And I have no right to complain because I live in Minnesota, but we’ve been so spoiled this year it’s a shock. We Minnesotans know that a real Arctic Chill can be 34 to 35 below, so there’s that. Maybe we’re actually lucky. But today I feel particularly lucky because I don’t have to go anywhere and I have a piece of Simon Pearce Quechee Quiche I’m going to have for breakfast!

Overnight Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Overnight Breakfast Sausage Casserole

I typically don’t make a lot of breakfast casseroles. I don’t really know why. Maybe it’s because I had a small family, I’m not a morning person (I should hashtag that!) and for years, although I have a few breakfast casseroles on my site, I love this Potato Cheese Strata. It’s kind of like my “signature” dish when I have overnight company, but it’s huge and more complicated. But now I have a “new” breakfast casserole, Overnight Breakfast Sausage Casserole. I’m kinda psyched about it.

I don’t think it would come as a surprise to any of you guys that I love food! And I love sharing food in real life and on my site, here. And I get excited about it. And I’m really excited about this Epic Pear Almond Granola French Toast. I know I’ve been talking about it with the recipes leading up to this French Toast. The Autumn Almond Pear Granola and the Pear Brown Sugar Caramel Syrup. And I don’t normally post twice in the same day, but the Pear Brown Sugar Caramel Syrup is kind of a sister recipe to this one and I couldn’t wait to share this French Toast.

So over the long weekend, temps way up in the 90’s (oh why is the weather so craaaazy this year?) I somehow got the idea that I wanted some of that Old Fashioned Tuna Macaroni Salad. You know the one I mean, all cool, creamy deliciousness with a few crunchy veggies and that tuna that somehow melds in and makes everything so rich.

Best Basic Hard Boiled Eggs

Best Basic Hard Boiled Eggs

When I was at my daughter’s not too long ago, I completely forgot how to boil an egg. And then this week, the same. I swear I’ve lost my memory and can’t find it. But you see, I’ve been making most of my hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot lately and since I hate googling up recipes I’d thought I’d post the Best Basic Hard Boiled Eggs right here. Just in case anyone else needs it!

Two Layer Rhubarb Custard Pie

There isn’t really anything that signals summer’s beginning more than Rhubarb. I’m just crazy about it ever since I was a kid and we’d sit under the honeysuckle bushes dipping stalks of rhubarb into our blue melamine sugar bowl. And I’m even crazier about this Two Layer Rhubarb Custard Pie.

a Dozen Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs

A Dozen Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs

Hard Boiled Eggs in the Instant Pot are possibly the best hard-boiled eggs, ever. If done right. Right is tender, not rubbery, whites & yolks just cooked through with no hint of green. Last week, I wanted to make a dozen instant pot hard boiled eggs that would be perfect for Easter dying or deviled eggs. How hard could that be?

Eggs cooked over a savory, custard soaked bread layered over ham - and that ham has such crispy edges!.

This dish was a new one on me…Featherbed Eggs. I mean, how could you not fall in love with a name like that? It makes me think of country inns with crisp white sheets, quilt draped beds. Cotton curtains blowing in a warm breeze. Comfort.

Turkey Ramen from leftover turkey

Turkey Ramen

When the idea of making a Ramen with my Homemade Turkey Stock and a little leftover Thanksgiving Turkey entered my mind, I just couldn’t let it go. I mean seriously I was just under the grip of this cray cray idea. So of course, I started with google and I found the idea of Turkey Ramen is not without precedence. Is there nothing “new” in the world of cooking?
