Florentine Toast Cups

So, I'm sort of repeating myself here, however, I wanted to try a new spin on an old favorite.

For these, I simply decided to whisk some eggs with some thawed frozen spinach. Two eggs and 1/3 to 1/2 cup of spinach made 3 cups. Shred some Jarlsberg Swiss on top and bake at 375 until set, about 25 minutes!

Feel free to add some more cheese to the egg mixture before pouring. More cheese is really never a bad thing. 
Of course I also had to make the bacon variety, in case these didn't turn out so well. Luckily, both were delish!

It feels as though I've been doing a LOT of failing recipe-wise lately. I have plenty of blogs planned for the near future, but I thought I needed to spread out some of my failures so that I don't look so entirely pathetic. Here is one failure, coming atcha!
I am not on a low-carb diet, nor any diet at all, really... but, I thought these low-carb Oopsie rolls sounded yummy and intriguing.
I think my fatal error was when whipping the egg whites. I whipped them to "stiff peaks," however I think me and Carbarella might have different opinions on what "stiff" means! Truthfully, I probably should have kept whipping, but I've been taught to not over-whip! Oh well, lesson learned. These were pretty inedible.

I've been hearing about chia seeds for a while now... when a friend's blog mentioned them, I jokingly said, "What, like the seeds you put on a Chia Pet?" Was I ever surprised to find out, yes, the one and the same! 


Then, I was perusing another pal's blog, and found this genius recipe for what can best be described as a healthy tapioca, or, as I like to call it: Chia Pudding!

I made this last night for the first time and I loved it! It was perfectly sweet with just the coconut milk and a banana, but of course I needed to dress it up with a little non dairy whipped topping!
I never, ever would have picked these up off the store shelf if it hadn't been for the cool people I "know" via the internet. I'm excited to try some other recipes with chia seeds. They're a great source of fiber and Omega-3's.
