February 22, 2021: Ham & Egg Cheese Cups

This recipe looks fun and easy!  Eggs + sliced Ham are the main ingredients. + Cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 200ÂșC and grease a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Line each cup with a slice of ham and sprinkle with cheddar. Crack an egg into each ham cup and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Bake until eggs are cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes (depending on how runny you like your yolks).
  3. Garnish with parsley (or green onion or any herb) and serve.

February 15, 2021: Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites

This looks like a very fun and versatile recipe!  You can make this for yourself or your housemates for something small to eat.  This would also make a great thing to show up with to a party.  The link below has a really clear and concise video showing step-by-step how to be successful.

Remember to gather or shop for the 3 ingredients.  Also, there is 1 Prep Step below I would like everyone to try to have done before class starts.

All that is needed is..

1 or 2 bananas

Peanut butter

Chocolate for melting (any chocolate + oil/butter; microwave for 30 seconds)

Successful Prep can be done 1 hour-30 minutes before class or Sunday night.

  1. Slice the banana(s) and make peanut butter banana slice sandwiches. 
  2. Freeze for 1 hour so they stick together (30 minutes should work).

I’m including the two videos we watched in class today on how to melt chocolate and how to revive hardened chocolate to make it usable for baking.
