Mini Quiches and Monkey Bread

Sketch194103844

It’s another snow day! With sub zero temperatures and three girls with serious cabin fever, we are huddled inside and declared a pajama day. Baking just felt like the right thing to do.

I’ve been trying to teach the girls how to bake and cook a little bit and days like today are the perfect opportunity for teaching and bonding….. And eating.:)

I will never forget my first home ec class in seventh grade. We made monkey bread. To this day, I remember how to make it without cracking a recipe book. So yummy and perfect for a day like today. I altered it a bit because nothing I make every tastes the same way twice because I don’t use measurements.

The mini quiches were also just thrown together, but super easy and delicious. With both recipes, the girls were able to help a lot. They whipped eggs, cut butter, sprinkled cinnamon and sugar and ripped up spinach. And they taste tested, of course.

Without further ado:

Mini quiches

3 eggs

1/4 cup milk

Chopped spinach and tomatoes

Shredded cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375f. Spray mini muffin pan with oil. In small bowl whip together ingredients and then pour evenly into pans. Bake in oven for ten to twelve minutes until they are poofy and cooked through.

Monkey bread

1 can biscuits

1 cup sugar

Cinnamon

1 stick butter

Preheat oven to 350f. Grease the bottom of a round baking pan. Rip up biscuits into small round balls and place in bottom of pan. Cut butter and place on top of biscuits. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through and no longer doughy.

Finally, eat and keep warm!

I’d love to hear your snow day activities!
