Easy Peasy Egg Tarts

Honestly, never even really occurred to me where egg tarts actually come from… as in from which culture. Growing up, I always remember eating them when my parents would bring us to go eat dim sum on weekend mornings. Those were very fond memories indeed. These days, you can pretty much eat dim sum any day.

But this I do know – while it is a Asian dish, it has influences from the Portuguese. Might be the reason why some Asian places call them Portuguese Egg Tarts.

So usually, I will try to make my own crust and I have a really wicked awesome flaky pie crust which I feel will work great for the egg tarts but this weekend, Ryan and I werenโ€™t feeling really well so I just really didnโ€™t feel like making it from scratch so store bought ones will have to do for this weekend ๐Ÿ˜€

And really, Tenderflake Tart Shells works perfect with Egg Tarts.

There are many many egg tart recipes but remembering that this is a Easy Peasy one, so I did skip some steps such as straining the egg mixture. Straining the egg mixture/filling helps remove any lumps and ensures your custard filling comes out looking smooth & pretty.

Also, it usually ask you to chill the filling in fridge first. Again, skipped by this mommy. One thing to note too that my original recipe usually uses evaporated milk but sometimes when I dun have that, I use my coffee cream instead. I just use 2 tbsp of coffee cream instead of 1/4 cup evaporated milk.

Since I am baking for my family and not to sell, I really could care less about straining it. Maybe when I have more time or when I decide to see if anyone will buy it from me at the Farmers Market lol

Here goes the super easy ingredients:

  • 1 box of Tenderflake Tart Shells (12 tarts)
  • 4 beaten eggs with a pinch of vanilla extract & salt
  • ยพ cup hot water
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk

My Easy Peasy Lazy Mommy Recipe:

  • To make the custard filling, stir in sugar in hot water and let it cool slightly
  • Once water is cooled, add in your beaten eggs, vanilla, salt and evaporated milk. If you donโ€™t have evaporated milk, I would just add 2 Tbsp of coffee cream or half & half
  • Mix it all up thoroughly
  • Strain it if you want your custard to look smooth and pretty and without lumps but I didnโ€™t.
  • Pour it into the 12 tart shells till about 80% full
  • Bake at 400 f for 20-25 mins. Mine came out at 25 mins Cos I filled the tart shells to the brim lol. But if you fill it to 80% full, 20 mins works suffice

And that is it. Super easy. Super lazy recipe. And now my son gets to have a taste of what my parents would bring me to eat on a Sunday morning ๐Ÿ˜€ and he ate 2 for breakfast this morning so Iโ€™m gonna call that a Mommy Win!

Easy Peasy Turkey Veggie Meatballs

We love meatballs! No doubt about that so when I was thinking on how to incorporate more veggies in our meals (because this family just really loves munching on salads & feeling like a rabbit lol), it just make so much sense to make meatballs with lots of veggies.

And itโ€™s perfect for crunch time since these meatballs freeze so well. I usually make a huge batch on weekend and use it on really busy weekday evenings that I donโ€™t have enough time to make our dinner from scratch.

Use it to make spaghetti with meatballs or make a meatball sub. Really, whatever u can think of will work with these babies ๐Ÿ˜€

Now, my recipe might incorporate veggies but if you practice clean eating, this probably isnโ€™t the recipe for you but if like me, you want a somewhat healthier meatballs but still wanna do it the Lazy Mommy way, then u might like this recipe!

So it really is as easy as it can be.

Ingredients:

  • 2 packs of Ground Turkey
  • 2 Eggs
  • Panko Crumbs
  • Shredded Veggies (I use 1 medium Zucchini and threw a bit of carrot I still had in the fridge)
  • 2 packets Onion Soup mix

Yes! You read that right! ๐Ÿ˜€

Like I said earlier, this recipe isnโ€™t for you if you want super clean eating and no sodium.

I just mix everything together. With any kind of meatballs, you never want to over mix or the texture of the cooked meatballs will be pretty yucky.

Bake in preheated 400 degree for 25 mins. If you like small meatballs, reduce it to 20 mins

There you go – this Lazy Mommy Easy Peasy meatballs ๐Ÿ˜€

Easy Peasy Pancake Muffins (Freezer Friendly)

Beautiful Saturday and I really wanted to make pancakes for lunch for us. LOL I missed the breakfast part as I totally slept in and Daddy totally took care of breakfast for Ryan. So I thought why not make pancakes for lunch? Then I had an even better idea. Why not make pancake muffins???

They are easy to make, doesn’t require flipping and watching the stove. And best thing is that Chef Ryan and I can do this together ๐Ÿ˜€ . How fun would that be?

Of course, that actually meant that I would have to clean my kitchen. Oops. Clearly did not think this through enough LOL but whatever, we are so doing this today!!

Ryan and I had so much fun baking these today. Sure, there were more things to clean up but oh well, such is life ๐Ÿ˜€

Hope you enjoy Chef Ryan’s baking video ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

Some Things To Note for this Recipe:

  • YES!! You can totally freeze these. They are perfect for taking one out the night before & by morning, Ryan can have them as breakfast or I can put it in his lunch box
  • We use dark chocolate chips, blueberries and strawberries as toppings but the sky is the limit and you can use other toppings that your heart so desire
  • If you have a sweet tooth, add 1/2 cup sugar instead of 1/4 cup

Daycare Lunch Box Ideas

Since Ryan started daycare, I am forever searching for lunch ideas. I wish but his lunch box doesnโ€™t look like this every day. Some days, I scramble to just get something half decent for him to eat at daycare. I have packed like KFC leftovers in his lunchbox ๐Ÿ˜….

Fortunately, his daycare provides all the snacks. We just need to provide his lunch.

Iโ€™m going to start taking pictures of his packed lunches and post it here as it goes. I figured Hey putting the photos on my blog is like the Best way for me to remember & get inspired on those leftover KFC nights ๐Ÿคฃ

I have been using these reusable lunch containers. But been trying to find a great Bento Box. Please share what Bento Box you use and why you like it.

Bye for now!

Spinach & Broccoli Frittata (Freezer Friendly)

Another super easy peasy recipe. The original recipe at Myfussyeater.com asks for the vegetables to be sauted first with a bit of oil in a pan but I omitted that step and just put the vegetables right into the mixture. One less step and one less pan to wash is always a win with this Lazy Mommy ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

You can tell Ryan loves his egg frittata already!

It is super soft so that makes it a perfect Baby Led Weaning recipe but as your baby grows to be a toddler, it becomes a perfect daycare packed lunch or breakfast. I love easy and multi purpose dishes.

They are also freezer friendly so I usually make a bigger batch and freeze some. Not all Baby Led Weaning recipes are things I personally would like to eat but HEY, I’m not a baby LOL. But these egg frittatas are yummy and I bring them to work for my breakfast too.

NOTES: Feel free to use other vegetables like mushrooms, bell peppers, zucchini and etc. If you are storing them in fridge, they would be good for 2-3 days. If you are freezing them, they can stay in the freezer for up to 3 months. I highly recommend that you freeze them individually so anytime you need one, you are not trying to get one frittata that is stuck to a while batch of frittatas. Hope that makes sense. If not, ask me in the Comment section and I’ll answer asap.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped spinach
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour
  • Salt & Pepper (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat to oven 350 degree. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl mix all ingredients until well combined.
  3. Pour this mixture into the dish and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and let cool before cutting it for baby.

Easy Peasy Omelette Bites

Easy Peasy Omelette Bites

  • Difficulty: easy

Easiest thing to make for your kids and will work as a baby led weaning recipe too. Feel free to use other vegetables and meat. This isn’t a strict recipe. I just happened to have bell peppers and leftover deli ham in my fridge so that was what I used but i have used bacon bits, diced up turkey deli, diced mushrooms, chopped up spinach…you get the drift. This really is a recipe that you can customise to your own liking. I like to add a little salt and pepper but you can omit that if you prefer it not to have any. This is a really great recipe for the freezer. I usually make a batch of them and freeze them. When i know i need one for the next day for ryan packed lunch, I take one out the night before and it be all thawed and ready to eat the next day. Or if you forget to take it out the night before, just heat them up slightly in microwave and there you go. So easy peasy.

Ingredients

  • 5 beaten eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced deli ham
  • 1/2 cup diced bell pepper
  • milk
  • pinch of salt and pepper

  2. Beat your eggs and add in all the ingredients
  3. Pour them into Silicone muffin cups
