Gingerbread Man Scrambled Eggs with Honey and Sprinkles

One evening while taking care of dishes with my six year old son beside me going through our kitchen drawers, he found a gingerbread man cookie cutter. K-man was curious, wanted to know what it was. I explained what it was and immediately he was hoping for me to make some cookies shaped like gingerbread man. Sadly. I had not the ingredients to do that.

What I did have was an idea!

I told K-man that the next morning, when I make his scrambled eggs, I could use this cutter to try to make Gingerbread Man Scrambled Eggs. He was sold. Excited for his morning breakfast, he slept through the night and woke up ready for his fun breakfast.

Gingerbread Man Scrambled Eggs by HappilyBlended.com #foodie #recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons 1% milk
  • Few drops of Honey
  • Enough Sprinkles to make eyes, eyebrows and mouth
  • Gingerbread Man Cookie Cutter (metal preferred so it doesn’t melt in heat)

Directions:

Turn stove on medium high heat with skillet on burner. Add tablespoon of butter to heat up on pan.

In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until fully combined.

Pour egg & milk mixture onto warmed up skillet.

Allow mixture to cook until starting to brown. Flip, as best you can, in one piece so other side can cook.

If mixture falls apart, which can happen, simple piece it together before it is fully cooked. {you will need the scrambled eggs mixture as close to one piece as possible to have success – think omelet style}

Once both sides of eggs are fully cooked, carefully place eggs onto plate in one piece using a spatula.

Take Gingerbread Cookie Cutter and use on the eggs to make the proper gingerbread man shape. Set aside the excess around cutter.

Take some drops of honey on the scrambled egg Gingerbread Man head.

Use your fingers to place sprinkles to design your own creative happy face.

Let cool and serve.

** if you have any allergies to products listed in this recipe, please do not make it or substitute items you can have.**

**Make at your own risk, the success of what your gingerbread man looks like may depend on practice and skill level. **

Sweet Pumpkin Muffins Recipe

This is my own personal Sweet Pumpkin Muffins Recipe. I love testing out new ways to get my little man to eat some foods that are somewhat better for him than his regular picky eater choices. This recent recipe creation was derived from other muffins and cupcakes I have made in the past. I thought about what should be in them and how to make it somewhat sweet so my little man would eat them.

**Please note if you have allergies, you may want to really check into the ingredients I used to ensure you are not allergic and use a substitute ingredient as needed. **

How To Make Sweet Pumpkin Muffins by HappilyBlended.com #recipe #foodie

Ingredients:

  • One (1) 15oz Can of Pumpkin Pie Filling OR 1 Cup of Pumpkin Puree if you prefer
  • 1 3/4 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • 3 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup of Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup of Brown Sugar
  • 2 Medium or Large Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1/3 Cup of 1% Milk

Optional:

Sometimes I add about 1/2 cup chocolate chips by folding them into the mixture before placing in muffin/cupcake liners. Adds a bit more flavor and my kids do prefer when I add chocolate to them.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place 12 cupcake/muffin liners in muffin/cupcake pan. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together until combined. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix brown sugar and eggs until combined well. Add in the pumpkin, granulated sugar, oil, milk and vanilla using an electric mixer on low to ensure mixture is blended together well.

Pour the dry ingredients into the wet mix and use an electric mixer on low to combine all ingredients until smooth.

Spoon mixture into cupcake/muffin liners until about 3/4 full. Bake for approximately 15 minutes {time may vary for different ovens}.

Let cool. Serve.

Makes approximately 13 muffins.

{Giveaway} How Would You Give Back to Your Community with $100? #12WeeksGiving

I am so excited to be taking part in the 12 Weeks of Giving series with MommaDJane, this is her fourth year hosting this series. There are only 12 weeks left of the year, it’s time to get into that giving spirit, our plan is to share ways each of us give back to our community with little to no cost involved.

12 Weeks of Giving #12WeeksGiving MommaDJane.com and HappilyBlended.com

I have watched Dwan do this series, every year, with amazement, giving back in any small way I can is so important to me. I have been talking a lot this year about how I need to start making time for volunteering in my local community with my kids. My mission is to start being more of an active volunteer in my community with my children so that when they are grown, the tradition will continue. I feel it is my job as a Mom to be part of volunteering within our community with my children for many reasons;

  • Instills good character traits in my children.
  • Makes me feel good to give my time to others.
  • Builds happiness in others when you take time for them.
  • Gives my children outlook on how others live, thus teaching them to have compassion and empathy.

Honestly, I could go on and on about why giving to others is so important to me, but will end with this story:

When I was a single Mom to my daughter, the community around me and co-workers helped a lot. Each time the holiday season hit, my desk would end up with a wide range of gifts from Santa to my little girl and me. I have been very blessed by others giving to me in those single Mom years and I feel it is now my turn to give back and pay it forward to others.

Follow along as Dwan and I share ways to give back to others in the upcoming weeks. This is week 1 and we decided to organize a little cash giveaway so that one lucky person can win $100 via PayPal to use for giving back to their local community. I hope you will continue to read along, and learn some new ways to give back without going broke.
