A Word From My Daughter

From time to time, my daughter is going to share some recipes, articles, stories, etc. for inspiration. She welcomes comments, and ideas that you might want to share as well. Please let us know if there is any particular subject that you would be interested in.


As our family is growing, I am finding that it is not easy for Mom to make breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday. So, as the oldest girl, I am making them more and more. I hope that you find this post, and more to come, helpful.

Here are some yummy breakfast recipes that our family enjoys:

Baked Oatmeal

3 c. oatmeal
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
add some cinn, raisins, and nuts.

1c. honey
2 tbsp.vanilla
1 1/2 c. milk
2 eggs

Mix dry, and wet in separate bowls. Then combine. Put in a casserole dish, and bake at 350 degrees.

You always know its a good meal when your Dad asks for it EVERY morning, and goes on and on about how they taste AWESOME. This is one of them! :)


2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda

3 c. buttermilk
2 eggs
2 tbsp butter
1/2 c. water(if needed)
a little squirt of honey

You can make your own buttermilk by getting a quart of buttermilk from the store, take about 2 tbsp and put it in a big, glass jar, and fill it up with regular milk. Give a little shake, and put in cupboard. Let it sit 12/24 hours, and put in refrigerator. When you are finished with jar, save two tbsp, and start over! Also try to put blueberries, nuts, apple sauce, cinn, vanilla, etc. And instead of syrup, try honey, or jelly! YYYYYYYYYYYYUUUUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Breakfast Casserole

6 eggs
2 c. milk
dry mustard
4 slice bread

Feel free to add these ingredients to make it extra yummy:
cheese, turkey sausage, potatoes, and any vegetables.

To save time, make this later in the day for the next morning, make double portions, and make a day for cooking. You can freeze the casseroles, and use the same bowls for all these recipes, they are almost the same ingredients. It will also add to the flavor!
