Easy Bacon and Cheese Quiche http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/04/easy-bacon-and-cheese-quiche.html http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/04/easy-bacon-and-cheese-quiche.html#comments Thu, 23 Apr 2015 11:00:28 +0000 http://tatertotsandjello.com/?p=72101 Quiche-Main-Image]]>

Hi!  It’s Laurie from Gallamore West.  I’m usually all about desserts, so today I’m excited to share a delicious main dish recipe with you.  My Easy Bacon and Cheese Quiche comes together quickly, but looks fancy enough for a Mother’s Day Brunch.  

 I make this Easy Bacon and Cheese Quiche anytime even for dinner because it’s quick, delicious, and fills four hungry little boy tummies over at Gallamore West.   Seriously, our little boys can EAT so a recipe that we all like and fills them up is one that definitely makes it into our menu rotation!

The ingredients are simple and delicious.  And really, isn’t everything better with bacon?  
 
 

For real, I love bacon.  We just did a Budget Kitchen Makeover and I had to have this sign in our “new” kitchen! 

 

Here’s the recipe:
 
Easy Bacon and Cheese Quiche
1 Traditional Frozen Pie Crust
8 large eggs
1/4 cup milk 
2 1/4 cup grated cheddar jack cheese (reserve about 1/4 cup for garnish)
8 strips bacon, cooked and coarsely chopped (reserve about 1 slice for garnish)
2 green onions, sliced (optional)
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cook bacon, chop and set aside.  Line a cookie sheet with foil and place pie crust on it (this makes it easier to get your quiche in and out of the oven).  In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, spices, and milk.  Use a wire whisk to beat the eggs very well.  Fold in the grated cheese, bacon, and optional green onions and mix well to combine. Slowly pour egg mixture into pie crust and bake on cookie sheet until edges are golden brown and the center is set, about 20 minutes.  Cool for 5 minutes before serving.   
 
The green onions are optional because maybe your kids are picky about
them like mine are.  I LOVE them, but the kids don’t so I just add mine
on top.  I pick my battles.  Someday we’ll graduate to putting the onions IN the actual recipe
instead of just on top.
I always save just a bit of the bacon and cheese from the recipe to sprinkle that on top too.  Enjoy! xoxo

I decided to share some easy & simple graduation party ideas!

grad.party_.ideas_.tatertotsandjello.com-0

A graduation party doesn’t have to be overwhelming. There are some simple ways to celebrate and make memories! Using products found at Michael’s, I put together this fun and festive graduation party as part of the Michael’s Makers Celebrations Challenge!

Celebrations Creative 2

I’ll be sharing all the individual decor, treat ideas and printables in upcoming posts, but here’s an overview to inspire you for your own party to celebrate your graduate!

 grad.party.ideas.tatertotsandjello.com-13

The straws and milk-jug glasses are from Michaels – aren’t they cute? Simply by trying some out-of-the-ordinary glassware can make a party special. (Yes, I’ll share the dipped Oreo recipe soon, too!)

grad.party.ideas.tatertotsandjello.com-2

The cute blank book is from Michael’s, and

grad.party.ideas.tatertotsandjello.com-1

the awesome frame is too. (I’ll share the printable in an upcoming post.)

 grad.party.ideas.tatertotsandjello.com-15

The cool stickers on the glasses, like cupcake toppers, are from Michael’s too. Believe it or not, they’re from the dollar section.

grad.party.ideas.tatertotsandjello.com-14

And this simple idea —

grad.party.ideas.tatertotsandjello.com-5

Simply wrapping black licorice whips around Pepperidge Farm Pirouette wafers (I like the ones from Trader Joe’s, too) carries on the “diploma” motif, but is super easy to do!

grad.party.ideas.tatertotsandjello.com-9

And of course the fun banner is from Michael’s as well!

grad.party.ideas.tatertotsandjello.com-10

What a fun and easy way to celebrate!

Celebrations Creative 1

Michaels is celebrating every occasion this summer with gifts for Moms, Dads and teachers, and parties to celebrate birthdays, graduation, and the 4th of July!  As a toast to the last Michaels Makers post of the season, we created gifts, baked treats and threw parties for each of the six holidays this summer. It’s never too early to get started on your next party or celebration – Michaels.com has more project ideas and instructions for you and your kids to make this year – check out projects forMother’s Day , Father’s Day, graduation, birthday and even summer.

Free Countdown to Summer Printable http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/04/free-countdown-to-summer-printable.html http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/04/free-countdown-to-summer-printable.html#comments Tue, 21 Apr 2015 11:00:09 +0000 http://tatertotsandjello.com/?p=72050 Erasable-Summer-Countdown-Free-Printable]]> Hi! It’s Kristin from Yellow Bliss Road here to share a super fun idea for the end of the school!

We are nearing the home stretch of the school year, and what better way to build up the excitement than with your own Countdown to Summer Printable?!

Erasable Summer Countdown Free Printable

My kids started a new school this past week. Yes, I realize it’s a little late in the year to be changing schools, but we had some very good reasons. Anyway, it’s been a tough transition and needless to say they are looking forward to summer even more. They have been hounding me about the last day of school – “When is it?” “How many more days??” so I decided to give them a little visual aid. We have a calendar but to count each of the days every day, while educational, was getting kind of tiresome.

How Many Days Until Summer Countdown

 

To use this countdown, print it out using the download link below, and place it in an 8×10 picture frame with a glass or clear plastic top layer. Using a dry erase marker, write the number of days left until school is out for the summer. The hard part is going to be remembering to do this each day, but I have a feeling my kids won’t let me forget!

As summer gets even closer, you can using the coordinating Free Printable Countdown to Summer Chain that you can find over at Yellow Bliss Road today. The chain links are also printable and come in 15 different designs. Make your chain as long or as short as you wish!

Clipboard Countdown to Summer

In the next few days, I will be sharing a fun Summer Bucket List as well as some great ideas for the last day of school! I hope you’ll stop by and follow along!

Thanks Kristin! What a fun way to get excited for summer. My kids would love this! Kristin has such awesome ideas on her blog. Here are a few that I think you’ll love:

Easy Felt Ball Tree Blossoms http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/04/easy-felt-ball-tree-blossoms.html http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/04/easy-felt-ball-tree-blossoms.html#comments Mon, 20 Apr 2015 16:00:27 +0000 http://tatertotsandjello.com/?p=72041 easy.felt.ball.tree.blossoms]]> I love the way felt balls bring some whimsy and color into the house, no matter what the season! I’m loving this easy felt ball tree blossoms project!

easy.felt.ball.tree.blossoms

One thing I love: felt balls are reusable once you are done displaying them on branches. You can take the ornament hooks off and do something else with them, like making a wreath, displaying in a bowl or making a garland.

felt.ball.project.color.tatertotsandjello.com-7

This project takes less than 30 minutes! Here’s what you’ll need and how to do it:

I think I have a felt ball addiction. These I hope you have loved felt ball projects as much as I do. I used artificial branches from a discount store but you could even use real branches from a tree that has been trimmed. Snappyandroo.com has an awesome “pastel colored spring mix” of felt balls that was perfect for this simple project.

felt.ball.project.color.tatertotsandjello.com-1

What you’ll need

  • Branches (real or artificial) (I used artificial branches from a discount store but you could even use real branches from a tree that has been trimmed.)
  • Ornament Hooks (mine were leftovers in my ornament box; if you can’t find any, you can use paperclips in a pinch)
  • Felt balls (I used the awesome Pastel Spring Mix from Snappy & Roo)
  • A vase

You may need an embroidery needle if your felt balls are very dense to poke a hole in for the ornament hooks.

Get your supplies together … and let’s get started!

felt.ball.project.color.tatertotsandjello.com-2

Put your branches in the vase, then

felt.ball.project.color.tatertotsandjello.com-3

Add the ornament hooks to your felt balls (above).

felt.ball.project.color.tatertotsandjello.com-4

Hang the felt balls on the branches, arranging and rearranging for balance.

felt.ball.project.color.tatertotsandjello.com-5

That was easy!

Let me know what you like to do with felt balls.

felt.ball.project.color.tatertotsandjello.com-8

Thanks Rachel and Natalie at Snappy & Roo for all the felt ball fun! I introduced them to you last week, but just in case you missed it:

Introducing Snappy & Roo — a great source for felt balls

I love the look and feel of handmade felt balls, but they’re hard (for me) to find. I was so happy to find Rachel and Natalie from Snappy & Roo, and I’m excited to have them introduce themselves to you:

Snappy & Roo

Hey there! We’re Rachel & Natalie from Snappy & Roo. We are sisters by chance and best friends by choice. It’s just the two of us for siblings and we wouldn’t want it any other way.

One of us is 3 1/2 years older (you guess which one) and we live 5 streets apart in Sandy, Utah. We do absolutely everything together including grocery shopping. Our biggest regret is that we don’t share the same shoe size.

The name Snappy & Roo started as nicknames from our dad but we’ve turned it into a place where we share our favorite things about life on our blog. And of course the fun and furry wool balls are one of our most favorite things ever. You can find us creating and color matching our little love balls and even purchase them on our site.

I love their cute felt balls!

Have fun with this cute gift idea, perfect for bringing a little love into anyone’s day!

The cute girls from Snappy & Roo provided me with the felt balls for this project; however, the project is all TT&J’s. See my disclosures.

Spring Felt Ball Grass Centerpiece! http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/04/spring-felt-ball-grass-centerpiece.html http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/04/spring-felt-ball-grass-centerpiece.html#comments Fri, 17 Apr 2015 05:53:17 +0000 http://tatertotsandjello.com/?p=71972 felt ball grass centerpiece]]> felt ball grass centerpiece

This is felt ball fun week.  Here is another fun, simple project.  I love these cute little balls.  I saw this grass container at Ikea but thought it needed a little something.  Since I am not always very good with indoor plants (I forget they need water), I thought this would be a fun felt ball project.  Snappyandroo.com has an awesome “bright colored spring mix” of felt balls that was perfect for this simple project.

Items needed

  • Grass Container from IKEA
  • Floral Foam
  • Wire cutters or craft scissors
  • Floral Wire
  • Embroidery Needle
  • Felt balls (mine are the bright spring mix colors from snappyandroo.com)

Gather Supplies

Cut two thin slices of foam to slide in between the two rows of grass.

Use the needle to create a hole in the felt balls.  The felt balls are so dense, it is difficult to slide the floral wire in without doing this.  Slide the floral wire in.

Fold the wire to different lengths.  I didn’t cut mine because the folded wire gives the stems better stability in the foam.

Tie a bow on.

Enjoy!

So fun and easy!

Despite our spring snow this week, I had my own cute Spring felt ball flowers to enjoy despite the snowy weather.
