Eating out is costly.  Not only does it cost money, but it also costs me my confidence in the kitchen.

Finding my confidence in the kitchen ebbs and flows. Sometimes I find it easily and sometimes it takes more out of me.

This recipe helped to get that confidence back in the kitchen. We actually served this as dinner for our kids, and they ate it up. I love that I can provide healthy kid-friendly recipes for my family.

  1. I Love All Of These!!!

  2. Thank you Ashten. I love breakfast and eggs, so this is an easy breakfast (or dinner) to me! I love it.

  3. This look freaking DELICIOUS.

  4. I would highly recommend waiting until you have moved out. We are dying over here! But, it’s coming to an end…carpet gets installed tomorrow and then we are done with our reno. Then the fun part begins – staging the house to get put on the market.

  5. I honestly think we will wait until we move out. We need to replace our kitchen floor, too, so it makes more sense to make. We had a backsplash and microwave hood and our kitchen painted last year… and it took forever. I hated not having access to my kitchen for two weeks! Thinking of you! It will be great once it’s over.

  6. Oh man…I wish you the best on getting your house painted. I WISH we could have done it after we sold our house because it would have been so much easier. But sadly, we couldn’t do that. Good luck getting your place painted…ours has taken much longer than we thought it might…but we are getting other stuff done as well at the same time. It’s crazy over here!

  7. It’s been rough, but it’s going to be worth it. I totally agree that you might go insane (because I am right there with you…on my wits end). And it is SO easy to make. I definitely want you to try it and throw whatever you want into it.

  8. I loved going through stuff and purging. I just wish the chaos was gone. It’s been rough, but it’s almost done! I can’t wait to get things back in the kitchen since our cabinets were finally done today.

  9. Yes, it is! I loved how it tasted and it was perfect for any quick meal, which we need right now.

  10. I love how easy this recipe is to make and how you basically use everything you already have in your fridge. I almost always have a few peppers left over and I hate to throw those out.

  11. We are going through something similar- we are ready to move but want to rent our house out, meaning we have a ton of work to do. We’re getting ready to have the entire house painted. This is a great recipe and I’m so excited about the giveaway!

  12. Ugh, I can’t imagine–I’m so OCD I would go insane! This is such a quick and easy meal for this time you’re going through though…thanks for sharing.

  13. I’m in the process of gathering recipes for when baby comes along, so this is the perfect recipe to add to my collection! ps. moving may be chaotic, but doesn’t it feel good to be able to go through everything and purge?!

  14. This is a great breakfast (or even breakfast for dinner!) for a busy time.

  15. I love throwing leftover veggies in to eggs with some cheese – different flavor every time! I’ll have to try this combo.

    Moving is so stressful but it’s all worth it in the end!
