This Week’s Featured Posts

Allison from The PinterTest Kitchen here, and I had the fun job of picking this week’s featured posts. This is a tough job, because we get so many amazing entries every week!

Let’s start off this week with Strawberry Ice Cream recipe from Creamish. Here in Virginia, the weather is finally starting to cool off, but it is always the right temperature for ice cream, am I right? Especially ice cream that looks this good!

Next up, I can’t wait to try this Red Pepper Tapenade from Little House Big Alaska. I love recipes like this that look super fancy, but are easy to make with ingredients you already have in our pantry. Plus… red pepper! YUM! What’s not to love?

Finally, fall is just around the corner, so check out these 5 Essential Fall Farmhouse Decorating Elements from Welsh Design Studio. I especially love her tips about using white pumpkins. My house has a beach theme and is decorated in cool colors like blue and purple, so traditional fall decorations don’t really match. I use a lot of white pumpkins and leaves in my fall decorating and love the new tips!

Homemade Salted Caramel Pecan No Churn Ice Cream

Homemade Salted Caramel Pecan Ice Cream

If I had to choose a favorite Ice Cream flavor, I’d say Chocolate Chip that comes from the local Ice Cream parlor. It’s the perfect blend of shaved dark chocolate and cream. I’ve never found any other like it. My second favorite is my very own creation, Homemade Salted Caramel Pecan No Churn Ice Cream.

It’s creamy sweet, with a bit of salt and full of toasty, meaty pecan pieces. It was so easy to make and I even made it while we had grandbabies and their parents visiting. The kitchen was very full-just the way I like it! It pulled together in 5 minutes plus the time it took to freeze it and guess what? It tastes amazing!

Homemade Salted Caramel Pecan No Churn Ice Cream is so quick and easy to make, mix and freeze for a decadent dessert anytime!

If you love real cream, (the kind used to make the real deal, fresh, homemade whipped cream) then you’ll love this ice cream. The heavy cream is blended with rich, perfectly sweetened condensed milk until it’s thick and creamy smooth. A dash of vanilla and you’ve got a great base for chocolate syrup, caramel sauce, nuts, cherries, more whipped cream or fruit. Banana Split anyone?

This time though, I wanted to use some jarred salted caramel and pecans in my ice cream. I simply put all the ingredients into my food processor with the mixing attachment, blended for about 45 to 60 seconds until it formed soft peaks, then put it in a glass pan and froze it for a few hours. The family was in awe and could hardly wait for me to get the pictures done so they could dig in! And they weren’t disappointed. It was a huge hit.

I hope you love this as much as we did! Check out my Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream recipe for more deliciousness!

It’s fall y’all! Time to break out the pumpkin spice everything!

What better way to welcome the fall than with Pumpkin? No one seems to get tired of it in their coffee. It’s a huge hit in pies, breads and soups. My favorite though is Ice Cream! No churn, fix it really fast, creamy and delicious ice cream. It’s perfect when you live in the south and the weather doesn’t feel like fall until Christmas. Homemade Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream and Creamy Milkshakes are the perfect way to celebrate the season with the flavors even if the leaves aren’t falling yet!

Then, add some crumbled candy, ( I used peanut butter malted milk balls) and some whipped cream to top it off with a little more sweetness. Not that it needs it, but why not? It’ll only make it that much more delicious!!

This week’s Featured Posts

Welcome everyone! Amy from Savory Moments here this week. I’m excited to be hosting the Friday Frenzy for the first time this week! I’m so glad that more people are linking up and sharing their recipe, craft, and DIY posts every week. These are a few posts that really caught my eye from last week’s link part.

The first feature this week is these Double Chocolate Bars on a Budget from Back to My Southern Roots. Aside from looking delicious, the title contains two of my favorite words – chocolate & budget! I love frugal cooking and especially love any dessert containing sweetened condensed milk.

Next is the Cow Patty Casserole from Recipes and Ramblings with the Tumbleweed Contessa. Another one that really caught my eye from the title! I can’t see food called a cow patty and not click over to check it out haha. I love all the Tex-Mex flavors and the cornbread topping and it looks very family friendly.

Our last featured post is a tutorial from Little House Big Alaska on How to Make Calendula Salve. I love the color and since I almost always have dry skin, I’d love to make my own salve with homegrown flowers for helping to moisturize!

Easy Quiche Recipe With Bacon and Gruyere

Easy Quiche Recipe With Bacon and Gruyere

Easy Bacon and Gruyere Quiche Recipe

Quiche has always been a favorite of mine. It’s the kind of meal that’s great for any time of the day (or night). Breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. How many food items can boast that versatility? You’ve got your eggs, bacon and cheese. Sounds perfect for breakfast. Quiche is kinda fancy looking: Brunch anyone? It’s packs up really nicely to take along for a brown bag lunch. Need a quick meal to throw together after a long day at work? Yeah, it covers that too. And if you add a salad and soup to a slice of Quiche you’ve got a very filling, satisfying meal on your hands! Easy Quiche Recipe with bacon and Gruyere is crazy easy to throw together.

Use a prepared pie crust from the frozen section at the grocery store and all you have to do is literally throw all the ingredients into a bowl, mix it up well, pour it into the crust and bake. It doesn’t get much simpler than that! Don’t have Gruyere cheese on hand? Use cheddar or Swiss. Don’t have any bacon? Use ham or spinach or broccoli. Heck, you can slice an onion and use it instead of meat. There’s plenty of protein in the eggs you’re using. See, not only is it quick and easy, it’s extremely versatile and very economical!

This Easy Bacon and Gruyere Cheese Quiche Recipe is perfect for Brunch or Breakfast!!

You’ll love this Easy Quiche recipe made with bacon and gruyere cheese-serve it for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner!

 

Quiche is a savory pie

that starts with eggs, cream and cheese baked into a flaky pie crust. Most times there’s also a protein added and sometimes even vegetables. Spinach, swiss cheese and ham are the ingredients in a Quiche Florentine and Quiche Lorraine is bacon, swiss cheese and onion. There are a ton of quiche recipes out there and you can really add any combination of ingredients that you like or have on hand. Go crazy with it! What are your favorite cheese, meat and veggie combo’s? Add them to my recipe in place of the cheese and bacon and you’ve got your own specialty Quiche recipe!

Easy Quiche Recipe with Bacon and Gruyere is an easy meal for anytime of the day or night!Click To Tweet

This Quiche Recipe is a great option for those days when you just don’t know what to cook. If you keep a frozen pie crust on hand (or make your own) and have some eggs, milk and cheese you are well on your way to a really delicious low cost meal that your whole family will love!

I normally serve my quiche with a fruit salad and sometimes a green salad on the side. It’s a perfect meal for a hot summer night when you’re hungry but don’t want a heavy meal. It’s also great served with a bowl of soup on the side for those cooler days and night.

Easy Bacon and Gruyere Quiche

Ingredients

  • 1 deep dish pie shell
  • 1 egg yolk (to brush on pie shell before baking)
  • 8-10 slices of fried bacon, drained and crumbled
  • 4 whole eggs plus 1 egg white (left from the separated yolk above)
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Gruyere cheese (you can use a mixture of swiss and gruyere)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Lightly brush the pie crust with the egg yolk around the edges. Using a fork, put several holes in the bottom of the pie crust. Place the crust on baking sheet.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs well, add the half and half, crumbled bacon, cheese, salt and pepper. Mix well and pour into the uncooked pie shell.
  4. Put the Quiche in the preheated oven, turning the temperature down to 375 degrees and let it cook for 35-40 minutes.
  5. You will know it's ready when a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Tips: I normally start checking it at about 25-30 minutes so it doesn't overcook.
  7. If you are using a regular pie crust and not deep dish, you will have too much filling and may need to use a second pie crust. In this instance cooking time will be shorter, so check it accordingly.
