Eggs

Artichokes and spinach are both rich in antioxidants, low in calories and help improve over all health.  So, indulge a little and check out this yummy scone recipe!

 

Ingredients:

3 cups all purpose flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 tsp garlic powder

1 stick of butter – cut into small pieces

3/4 cup of Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup artichoke hearts – chopped

1 box frozen spinach – thawed

1 cup milk

2 eggs

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Next, combine all the dry ingredients together.

Cut up the butter into small pieces and add to the dry ingredients.

Add the Parmesan cheese.

Add thawed out spinach and chop up the artichoke hearts.

Add the artichokes to the mix and stir up.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and 1 egg.

Pour the milk mixture into the spinach mix.

Using a fork, mix up the ingredients together to form a thick dough.  You may have to wet your hands (to prevent sticking) and kneed the dough a little bit to help mix it all together.  It should look like this when combined:

Wet your hands again and pull off sections of the dough to form smaller wedges for the scones.

Place wedges on a baking pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray to prevent sticking.  Beat the remaining egg in a separate bowl and brush it on to the tops of the wedges before baking.

 

Bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until they become golden brown on top.  Remove and serve hot!

Leftover scones can be stored in the freezer in resealable freezer bags for a yummy snack or side dish to another meal!

Strawberry Bread

by Heather

in Bread

This is by far, one of the most moist, delicious breads!  The Greek yogurt gives it a great creamy taste and you can use either fresh or frozen strawberries!

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter – melted

3/4 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 container of Greek yogurt (I used honey flavored)

1 3/4 cup all purpose flour

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 cup strawberries – chopped (fresh or frozen and thawed)

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, cream together the melted butter and the sugar.

Next, mix in the eggs and the Greek yogurt.

After those four ingredients have been mixed together, add the vanilla.

Add all dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Fold in chopped strawberries.

Pour mixture into individual mini loaf pans (or 1 large loaf pan) and place in the oven.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes (55-60 minutes for a large loaf).

Once cooked through, remove from oven and allow to cool.  Enjoy with a cup of coffee or a large glass of milk!

The leftovers can be stored in individual, resealable plastic bags and put in the freezer for a yummy treat another day!

Cool Whip Cookies

by Heather

in Dessert

Looking for a super easy treat that is a big hit with the little ones and grown-ups alike?!  Look no further!  These little mini cookie-cakes are great and you can change up the flavor based on which cake mix you buy!

 

Ingredients:

1 box of cake mix

1 – 8 oz container of cool whip

2 eggs

confectioner’s sugar

 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Dump out the contents of the cake mix in a large bowl and add the eggs and cool whip.

Beat the ingredients until combined.  The dough is going to be VERY gooey.

Next, in a small bowl, dump some confectioner’s sugar for rolling.  Then, wet your hands and scoop up a spoonful of mixture – roll into a loose ball.  Then roll the ball through the confectioner’s sugar and place on a greased cookie sheet.

Once you have rows of them ready, pop them in the oven for about 10 minutes.

After the cooking time, remove them from the oven and allow to cool.  These are great, very airy cake cookies and go great with a large glass of milk!

Because of the cool whip and the cake mix, these cookies freeze great!  They can be put in a freezer safe container or plastic bag and thawed out again another day for a great snack!
