Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Another recipe that I can say we have made lots and lots of times here in Fiji is these CC Cookies.  While chocolate chips are not really available here, we have been blessed by people who have sent them to us! This recipe is about half the amount of a normal CC cookie recipe at home, which is why I like it.  It doesn't make a ton, so we don't get tempted to eat more than we should!  Here it is...

2/3 c Butter softened
3/4 c Raw Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1 egg
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 c choc chips

Mix butter, sugar, egg and vanilla either by hand or with a mixer.  Add flour and mix well. Add CC and Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes,  Makes 12-14 cookies.

Super Easy Breakfast Egg Bake

So it's been a tremendously long time since I've posted anything, but I sure haven't quit finding new and yummy things to eat! Being in Fiji these last 8 months I have had to improvise and make a lot from scratch, but I have found some really good recipes while being here that are super easy and fun to make.  Here's one of our favorites:

1 14oz pkg sausage, browned and drained-OR-6 smoky links, cut into small pieces
12 eggs
2 T chopped onion
3 cups milk
8 oz shredded cheese
8 slices bread, cut into pieces
salt and pepper

Grease a 9x13 pan and put cut bread pieces in first, then sausage over that.  Mix eggs and milk together and pour over bread and sausage.  Top with shredded cheese and bake uncovered for 45 minutes or so till golden on top.
Serves 12

Tastes great with a cup of coffee and fresh fruit :)
