Bake along with Hugs and CookiesXOXO....

I found Danielle's website somehow one day.... and man is her site awesome! So many yummy things. She goes beyond the 'normal' baking. The other day she made this 'cake' and posted it on FB, it was a cookie layer, brownie layer, and cheesecake layer (TWICE!!!!) with thick caramel and marshmallow fluff, and then topped with chocolate frosting!!!!! Ahhhhh-mazing!

Anyway she host's these bake alongs that I've seen but never really participated...Well I felt like baking so I whipped up some of her Chocolate Caramel Banana Bread, and some Chocolate Chip Cookies yesterday.

I was watching her FB today to see the bake-along recipe, but missed it until later on this afternoon, but thankfully it was simple enough to just whip up. The recipe was FLOURLESS PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES.  Yummy! I also decided to try out a PB frosting ... I made it up, its just PB, powdered sugar, and milk. The kids thoroughly enjoyed them.

I love my kids =)

Thanks Danielle for sharing this recipe and all the other delicious ones!

ROTW: Breakfast Casserole (ANYTIME)

Oh Goodness is this yummy! I had to use a roll of jimmy dean sausage that my mom gave me. I went to (its my got to site for recipes) and plugged in Sausage, and up came all sorts of casserole recipes and soups....

I'm in Florida and just wasn't in the mood for soups. So I skipped over those and opened a bunch of tabs of the casseroles. I scrolled through my open tabs looking at the pictures and the ingredients. ( I love seeing the recipe, if it looks yummy I am more likely to make it ) I had three I narrowed it down too...then I made my final decision: Country Breakfast Casserole

I generally read through the comments below the recipe to see what others have done to make the recipe better or for mistakes that people have found in the recipe, so I can avoid disasters. But i realize now that I did not do that this time.

  • 1 (16 ounce) package breakfast sausage
  • 1 chopped green onion
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 (2.64 ounce) package country gravy mix
  • 6 slices bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter (optional)
  • paprika to taste (optional)
I followed this pretty much the way it was. Except I swapped out the green onion with sweet onion, and the bread with a package of stovetop cornbread stuffing mix (un made). I also added one more egg, 1/4 cup more milk, and 1/4 cup more water. ( I wanted to make sure I had enough liquid to reach the stuffing) I also sauteed about 2 TBS of diced Jalapenos in butter and left them until they were sort of caramelized, and added it to my pie dish with the sausage/onion mixture - I made this in two 9 inch pie plates. I wanted a little more kick to mine.

Brown the sausage, add in the chopped onion, saute until onions are translucent. Place this at the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Top with shredded cheese. Mix together the eggs, water, milk, and gravy mix ( I used one that makes two cups-pepperidge farms sausage country gravy I believe-(which I had to run to the store and get because I thought I had one but didn't). I added some garlic, and a pinch of cayenne pepper, some onion powder, kosher salt and pepper. Then pour this on top of the sausage mixture. Top with the bread. Top with the butter. ( I used the stovetop cornbread stuffing un made, and no butter-when it was almost done I pulled it out and used spray butter on the top) Bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes.

This was sooo sooo sooo good! Kids went back for seconds! Even the baby ate it!

Next time I think I might add some Zuchinni or squash to it as well....up the eggs and milk again...maybe even some mushrooms. Yummy! I love casseroles, You can basically throw in anything and they are good....most of the time....I've had a few come out horrible.
