- quick recipe of the week -

Wow, what a great weekend we had! Ellie's birthday party was a raging success! I am really happy with how everything turned out! It was so much fun planning! Ellie had a blast, and I think everyone else did too! Pictures to come soon (our wonderful family photographer and great friend, Nina, took professional pictures for us during the party. I can not wait to see them!)

Without further ado, let me introduce you to the lovely, Alycia from Crowley Party. I was so honored when she said she would contribute a recipe today, because she is such a well known gal in the blogging world...and my blog is kind of "small time" still...(wait, "kind of"...who am I kidding? It's TOTALLY "small time" still!)

Alycia's blog started off as a place to document the life of herself and her hubberz, & since then has grown into a creative outlet where she can share the things she, fashion, crafts & anything else life has to offer her! Alycia and Trevor follow the mantra that life should be a party, hence the blog-title, Crowley Party. She loves the blogging world for so many reasons, but mainly because you get to make connections, & bounce creativity off each other! So please go visit her, join the party, and say HELLO!

Today Alycia decided to share one of her favorite "go to" breakfast meals :) Her husband loves them...I mean who wouldn't? It is all the best things about breakfast in a bite! I think I would definitely get the "wife of the year" award if I whipped these up every weekend for my hubby!

Breakfast Cups
6 slices of bread
6 slices of bacon
6 eggs
1/2 cup of shredded cheese
salt & pepper 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray muffin pan with butter non-stick spray. Using a cookie cutter cut circles out of bread slices about 3 inches in diameter. Take bread circles and press them into the muffin pan, set aside. Heat a large skillet on medium-high. Cook bacon on the skillet until partially cooked but still pliable, about 3 minutes. Shape bacon strips into the toast cups, fill with 1 Tbs of shredded cheese. Place in the oven for 5 minutes, allowing the bacon to toast just a little more. Remove from oven. Crack your egg and separate out most of the egg white. Drop eggs into the cups, sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste. Place back in the oven and cook until white begins to set, about another 8 – 10 minutes. The yolk should be creamy. Remove from oven when done and pop out using a spoon, serve warm.

Although I'm not usually huge on breakfast, these look so good and I will definitely be trying them out! (I know, I know...breakfast IS the most important meal of the day...I really need to start eating breakfast regularly...I'll just have to start with these!)

Definitely go check out Alycia's blog. It's pretty awesome, and I promise you will love it!

YUM! I'm not really a consistent breakfast person either, (more of a weekend-brunch person), but this would definitely help me start my morning off right! Anything with bacon:-) xoxo
