Feta and Spinach Scramble

This is one of those dishes that we threw together on a weeknight that ended up being really good!  We love to have breakfast for dinner mid-week.  I will usually whip up some biscuits and Jim will take care of the eggs.  We had a half a bag of spinach and a half a carton of feta so that is what went into the eggs.  I always have to have some heat with my scrambled eggs so I decided to add the sliced pepperoncini – holy yum!

Whether you make this for dinner or breakfast, this is a scramble you are sure to love.


Feta and Spinach Scramble
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 oz crumbled feta
  • 3 good handfuls of baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon of butter or olive oil
  • sat, pepper and dill to taste
  • Sliced pepperoncinis
  1. In a large skillet over medium heat melt the butter and then wilt the spinach for a few minutes. Remove from the pan to a plate.
  2. Add the eggs to the pan adding a little more butter if needed to cook the eggs. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and dill. Once the whites start to set break the yolks and then begin to scramble by running a spatula or wooden spoon through the eggs. Add the spinach and feta and continue to cook until the eggs are cooked but still nice and creamy. Adjust seasoning to taste. Serve with sliced pepperoncinis sprinkled over top.
  3. Enjoy!


Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Do you have a crazy, insane person in your house that doesn’t like banana muffins or banana bread?

I do, so I decided to try a recipe that disguised the banana with chocolate (and more chocolate) and guess what?  It worked!  My crazy, insane, banana bread-hating child decided that banana and chocolate is good.  Yummy in fact!

I have made these muffins a bunch of times and they have quickly become a favorite – even with my traditional banana bread loving family members.  They are incredibly moist and the taste of chocolate and banana is surprisingly good.

Mini chips are a great choice for these muffins because they don’t overpower the banana flavor with too much chocolate.  Not that you can really have too much chocolate.  I’m just talking balance here people:-)

For some other yummy banana recipes give these a try!

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1-1/3 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients (flour through baking powder). Mix together with a whisk so all dry ingredients are evenly distributed. In a small bowl, combine bananas, oil and egg; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until muffins are done.
