Amazing Muffin Cups
I really like this breakfast treat! I looked over some of the reviews and saw that many people did substitutes. I actually did this recipe in the large Texas size muffin pan. It was equivalent to a slice of quiche! Here are my substitutes: I did not have the red or green bell pepper so I used red onions and caramelized. I used chicken breakfast sausage because I do not eat beef or pork. I think next time I will forgo all the meat and do veggies such as mushrooms and spinach! Serve this with fresh fruit berries and coffee for a special brunch!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake
My first time making carrot cake and this particular one is a wonderful moist recipe! I used 5 medium size carrots, substitute with LIGHT cream cheese and reduced fat buttermilk. I also used an Orange Cream Cheese Frosting recipe with this and it was excellent! Instead of a cake, I did this in large texas size cupcake tin (it made 15 nice size cupcakes) This way I was able to share with others. I received so many compliments on this recipe!
