Individual Veggie Quiche Cups To-Go

Individual Veggie Quiche Cups To-Go ~ Low carb, low calorie individual quiche cups for breakfast {or lunch} on the go!

I don't know about you, but I get so bored with my breakfast routine.  I mean, I seem to get stuck in a rut of the same-ol'-same-ol' over, and over, and over, and over ... which is further complicated by the fact that I try to eat low-carb for breakfast.  Carbs and I just aren't good friends in the morning.

Well, guess what? ...


Maple-Fried Apples & Maple-Mustard Pork Tenderloin

Since moving to The South, I've learned that we fry everything down here.  The classic -- fried okra, fried green tomatoes, fried turkey.  The new-to-me-but-I-love-it -- fried squash, fried pickles.  And the okay-who-thought-of-that? -- fried Oreos.  Yes, one of the little local cafes I frequent serves fried Oreos as a dessert. {Oh, and it's totally fabulous! ... in case you were wondering.}

And all these fried things are typically deep-fried.  Ya know, in all kinds of smokin' hot oil that the food-of-choice is completely submerged in until it's a crunchy golden brown, oh-so-delicious-but-no-so-great-for-you bite.

So, when I encountered 'fried apples' on a menu one day, ...

Gingerbread Vampires

Who says gingerbread men are just for Christmas?  Not these guys.  These gingerbread men cookies have put on their vampire costumes for Halloween!

I wish I could take credit for this clever idea ... but alas, I cannot. 


Vermont Maple No-Bake Cookies

Classic no-bake cookies get an extra special twist in these Vermont Maple No-Bake Cookies.  They're pure Vermont maple deliciousness!

I am a huge fan of maple syrup.  Pure Vermont maple syrup, to be exact.  As many of you already know, I grew up in Vermont.  Since moving to North Carolina (eighteen years ago after finishing college), I still have Vermont maple syrup shipped to me from my favorite Vermont sugar shack.  For me, there's just no substitute.

So when I had the opportunity to try Tonewood Maple's syrup, ...

Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes


You know, when I was mixing up the filling for these Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes, I was completely underwhelmed.  But when I baked them up for their second baking time, something A-MAZING happened!  Yum!  I swear, that second baking time ... when all the flavors got time to meld together ...

Nutella Waffles {& two blog milestones!}

It's been a big couple of weeks here at The Kitchen is My Playground, with this little slice of blogland reaching two pretty cool milestones.  At least I think they're pretty cool!

So what are these cool milestones, you ask?  Well, please allow me to share ...

4-Bite Apple Pies - aka Apple Pie Cookies

It's Crazy Cooking Challenge time!  This month's challenge assignment? - APPLE PIE.  And what perfect timing for an apple challenge. ...

Super Easy Tootsie Pop Ghosts

To be honest ... I'm not a Halloween fan.  I think it may have something to do with the fact that I broke my nose on Halloween when I was five years old.  Falling down the stairs wearing my costume we'd made in Kindergarten class.  'Cause I couldn't see the steps over the top of the costume.  'Cause the costume was made out a big cardboard box. 

Yep, missed the top step. ...
