Mediterranean Feta Egg Scramble

I love me some feta cheese.
I eat it plain as a snack, love it in dips, adore it on salads...and melt when it's used as a pizza topping.

Fortunately, the people I share my life with feel the same way. None of us will ever turn our noses up at something that includes feta cheese.

When I saw this recipe on Our Best Bites, I knew it would be a favorite! Whipped it up quick one Sunday morning and hubby and I ate every bite in our bowls.
There is still a serving on the stove.
Just sitting there, waiting.

My snoozy girl child has yet to wake up and join us.
It would be in her best interest to do it soon...I might be feeling a smidge hungry again!

Ingredients:
6 Eggs
¼ Cup sour cream
¼ Tsp salt
Cracked black pepper to taste
¼ Tsp garlic powder
½ Tsp dry basil
½ Tsp dry oregano
¾ Cup crumbled feta cheese
2 Tbsp diced roasted red peppers
2 Tbsp minced green onions
1 Tbsp butter


Directions:
1. Preheat a skillet over medium heat
2. Whisk eggs,sour cream, salt, pepper, basil, oregano, and garlic powder together
3. Gently fold in feta cheese
4. Add butter to heated pan
5. Add eggs to pan and stir
6. Add in red peppers and green onion
7. Cook eggs until cooked through

Scalloped Sweet Potato

Hubby and I were sitting around one day (or night, whatever) watching the Food Network. Bobby Flay's Barbecue Addiction was on, and he was making hasselback sweet potato.

I was bringing a potato side dish to a family function, and thought that would make for a nice change of pace.
Though, there were going to be so many of us, I knew there was no way I could do enough hasselback style. It would have either been overwhelming, or a waste.

I sliced the potato thin and layered them with the butter mixture to create a scalloped potato version.

As discussed in another post, I have yet to ever try a sweet potato.
So...general consensus is that this is sweet and delicious.
The majority have spoken!

Ingredients:
3 Large sweet potato (peeled and sliced thin)
1 ½ Sticks unsalted butter (softened)
3 Tbsp molasses
1 Tbsp cilantro
1 Tsp orange zest
⅛ Tsp nutmeg
Salt and Pepper
½ Cup rum


Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Spray casserole dish with cooking spray
3. Mix all ingredients (except potato)
4. Layer butter, potato, butter, potato until all is used
5. Cook for 45 minutes, or until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork

Pecan Dainties

I was grocery shopping one day, and this recipe printed out on my receipt. Cool!

Not pleased to find out that this is a crumbly dough recipe. Crumbly dough is not my BFF. In fact, we are sworn enemies.
I never can seem to get it to work like other people do.
My cheeks are burning in shame.

This recipe says it makes 50 cookies. Are you kidding me? I got about 12 small meatball sized ones out of it.
They taste awesome, but, it's tainted for me because I feel inadequate.

Any tips or hints for me?

Ingredients:
½ Cup butter (softened)
¼ Cup powdered sugar
Extra powdered sugar for dusting
¼ Tsp salt
1 Tsp vanilla
1 Cup all purpose flour
1 Cup finely diced pecans


Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Mix butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla
3. Gradually add in flour and pecans
4. Chill dough 1 hour
5. Roll dough into marble sized balls
6. Cook for 15 minutes until firm but not brown
7. Roll gently in powdered sugar
8. Cool completely
9. Roll in powdered sugar again
