A savory update on baked French toast, this is an easy make-ahead dish that is excellent for brunch and showers. The combination of maple syrup, bacon and nuts makes it impressive and satisfying.—John Whitehead, Greenville, South Carolina
One morning, I was searching the kitchen for a way to jazz up scrambled eggs. When I couldn't find any bacon bits, I decided to try the leftover taco filling from the night before. I've been making it for my husband and me since.
This is an ideal dish for two, especially if you like spicy food. Plus, it's easy to make when you wake up sleepy—and the sauce is a real eye-opener!
We live on 35 acres of rolling farmland along with a horse, two dogs and 10 cats, I enjoy them reading, writing, gardening and counted cross-stitch.
There's nothing I like better than getting all my housework done and "cooking up a storm" in the kitchen.
I was raised in a farming community that had many asparagus growers. So I've always made sure that there's an ample supply of asparagus in my freezer!
My husband is a grain farmer, and we have four grown children and 13 grandchildren.
Especially during the summertime, this makes a nice light meal. When I prepare it for guests, I'll also serve rice and bread—it's quick and easy, but it always wins me many compliments!
I'm a homemaker with two small children, and cooking's one of my favorite hobbies.
