Mexican Quiche

I love this dish. Very cheesy texture and good flavor. We eat it for breakfast or dinner.

1 cube butter
10 eggs
½ c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 8 oz. can chopped Ortega chilies
1 pt. cottage cheese
1 lb. Jack cheese, grated (or use the Mexican blend)
½ tsp. salt

Melt butter in 9 X 13 pan to be used in baking quiche. Beat eggs, add flour, baking powder and salt. Blend, then add melted butter, chilies and cheese. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes; reduce to 350° and bake 40 minutes. Cut in squares. Serve hot or cold with salsa on side and chopped cilantro (optional).

Easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are really good, especially for how easy they are. These are really soft and cakey. I think they taste better after they've had time to cool rather than hot out of the oven.

1 30 oz can pumpkin
2 spice cake mixes
1 12 oz bag chocolate chips

Mix together gently until combined. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes.

When this batch makes 48 cookies, each cookie is 1 WW point.

Easy Milkshakes

Lately we've been blending up ice cream and milk in the blender to make milkshakes. The chocolate ice cream milkshakes tasted more like Frosty's, but our favorite are the Oreo milkshakes that we make with cookies and cream ice cream. The consistency is better.

ice cream flavor of your choice
milk - amount depends on how much ice cream and the consistency you want.

Directions are simple: Blend.
