Southwest Oven Omelet

In looking through the Catholic Daughters Cookbook, I found a few other recipes I was excited to try and decided to make them.  The first was for an oven omelet — similar to a frittata, egg bake, or other items.

Sweet Potato Crisp

This weekend was great outside.  It was almost 60 degrees outside and it was perfect weather to start grilling and pretending it was spring.  When I came across a recipe for Sweet Potato Crisp in a church cookbook — the same one where I found the drop cookies and m&m oatmeal cookies.

Looking for some more recipes for the blog. #yum #recipes #churchcookbooksarethebest

This recipe for Sweet Potato Crisp sounded great and like a nice change from other sweet potato recipes.

Golden Potato Soup

A couple weeks ago I had the flu.  Not the “I-don’t-feel-well-it-must-be-the-flu,” but the I-went-to-the-doctor-and-he-ran-a-test-for-influenza-flu.  It knocked me out.  For three days I don’t know what happened.  In fact, I had  a couple moments where I had to call people and ask what we had discussed on the phone while I was sick.

When I finally started feeling well enough to sit upright again, I started looking through recipe books for a few things to make and came across this recipe for golden potato soup in one of my church cookbooks.  I thought this might be worth making, since it would provide warmth.
