Pinterest Inspiration!

Yummy Yummy!

So with the help of my sister, I have now become addicted to Pinterest. I keep finding all of these great recipes and I've been fortunate enough to have the time and energy to re-create a few!

First off, I wanted to make biscuits for dinner with some friends. We didn't have rolls in the freezer and I've never made them by hand but why not? I didn't have whole milk or cream so I used evaporated milk instead, worked just fine and they were wonderful! I found the recipe on Pinterest, forgot to take pictures so here's the link: Simple Biscuits

Then this morning, I decided to try these yummy toast cups I also found on Pinterest. Hoping they would be creative enough for kids, I set out to re-create again.
Yummy Toast Cups

I didn't have a circle cookie cutter so I used the Maltese Cross cutter I bought this summer in Austin, cute but unrecognizable after the fact:

I made scrambled eggs for the kid's cups as I knew they wouldn't eat an egg yolk, nonetheless they didn't really eat anything other than the bacon. Next time I'll make for adults only because we loved them!

Here's the finished product, Fred and I both enjoyed. Although next time I'll bake for only 6 or 7 minutes rather than 8, the yolks were a little overdone for our liking and the bread gets awfully crispy at 8 minutes!

Both recipes were pretty simple, just took a little bit of patience but otherwise pretty easy, just the way I like it! Typically I'm a baker (sweets mostly) so these were branching out from my norm, but totally fun and must keep recipes!
Happy Eating!

I've made the toast cups with canned biscuits but it's great to know that you can do it with regular bread also. Can't say I always have canned biscuits handy!
