As if I wasn’t having fun enough with my two-year old nephew, Blake, I’m now fortunate to have Grayson to spoil too!
You’ve seen Blake featured here on many an occasion. After all, his aunt is a cook and loves to feed the little guy!
Grayson made his grand entrance into the world a few weeks ago, and naturally that meant Auntie needed to make some comfort food for Mom and Dad.
After all, rest in that household wasn’t going to happen for several weeks to come. Those of us who have had an infant and a toddler in the house, know how exhausting those first few days are.
A ham and cheese strata is the perfect meal contribution. It can serve as breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Even better, this easy egg recipe keeps in the frig for several days – a must for new moms and dads who have to grab a bite whenever they can.
And it’s hearty enough to stick to your ribs for hours to come.
Welcome to the family Grayson – Auntie can’t wait to spoil you rotten!
Happy, healthy cooking!
