Zucchini Quiche With Sausage

I know some people just can’t make decent pie crust no matter how hard they try and this  recipe takes out the pain in doing so. Bread is used in lieu of  homemade or store bought crust and who doesn’t have bread in the house? I haven’t made a quiche is quite awhile and it’s about time I did just that, because my REAL man happens to enjoy it! I have fresh zucchini from the garden and homemade sausage in the freezer so I ask myself, what’s the hold up Regina, get cooking! But it is Monday and they are usually reserved for easy meals to get myself back in the weekly routine after the weekend and catching up on e/mails and such.

Our fresh zucchini to use for this and many other recipes!

Sweet Sunshine Grits

I know a lot of you out there are not big fans of grits like we are but maybe by combining the sweetness of the orange juice, you might find a way to enjoy this wonderful staple here in the south, grits. This recipe mixes things up a little and adds eggs and orange juice to the batch of grits and then it is baked off in your oven. Another all-in-one dish, grits, orange juice and eggs. It’s also another recipe any guy can cook up for mom tomorrow and even have the kids help to start her day off with some Florida sunshine!
