There is something very special about making dishes in separate servings. I think, the food looks better. It is a lot easier to take a small dish rather than cutting something up.
Of course, there is the "Cute" element. The minute, something becomes a mini, it also seems to become cute. The smaller the better..... The name for this dish is based on "Cute" or perhaps, plain ole silliness.
As a result, we now have these little delightful dishes of cheese, spinach and eggs. Spinach is a last minute addition but as far as I am concerned, it is a star of the dish.
A side on minis.....I think, almost anything can be turned into a miniature of the original. We already have in the mainstream, tarts, cupcakes, ice cream cups and the likes. I have indulged in mini-meatloaves, mac and cheese, lasagnas and I think, you get the idea.
Have fun. Be creative. Make minis.
Spray olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
3/4 cup frozen spinach, drained and squeezed to get out water (I was out of fresh baby spinach which is normally a staple in the house. I have to admit that frozen spinach is not usually a compromise, only for a salad or for decoration.)
1/2 cup sour cream minus 1 tablespoon ------- or plain yogurt
1/2 cup Mexican cheese.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray 4 ramekins.
In a medium bowl, ( used a 4 cup measuring cup), whisk eggs and sour cream.
Stir in cheese and spinach.
Pour egg mixture into greased ramekins. and Bake for 30 minutes. Mine doubled in size but that didn't last long.
Eat and enjoy.

It says, "thai" so I have to like the Thai Chicken San Choy Bau that we are making this week in our Donna Hay Wednesday group. It was a bit spicy and the chopped chicken was a nice change of pace. Kayte selected this recipe from On the Shelf on page 124. I tried it with the greens and it was very good and then I put it on spaghetti and it was spectacular. My toddler granddaughter even liked it. Must have been the hot sauce. I used romaine for the greens and I subbed in red pepper and added some Sirracha to spice it up to make up for the real chilis. Do check out the other cooks' dishes at our Wednesday with Donna Hay site.
Another week, another vegetable for our Power Food group, a bunch of women who strive for healthy eating with the most delicious dishes. Each blog is inspiration . Each week, we choose a recipe based on the power food which comes from the book, Power Foods, 150 delicious recipes with the 38 healthiest ingredients from the editors of Whole Living magazine. Brussels sprouts like broccoli and cabbage are cruciferous. This group offers a unique composition of antioxidants that may provide several health benefits. Brussels sprouts are low in calories and offer protein, vitamins and minerals to help build a healthy human. My first issue with brussels sprouts is that it took me years to spell it correctly. Each time, it came up, in writing, and I admit, that was not too often, I would stare into space asking myself does brussel get an S, at the end or is it sprout that gets the S. For some reason, I could not remember that both end with that S. I am happy to tell you, I overcame thi

Each week, we choose a recipe based on the power food which comes from the book, Power Foods, 150 delicious recipes with the 38 healthiest ingredients from the editors of Whole Living magazine. That week, we concentrated on carrots. I like to check out our vegetable, not only for health benefits, but also for the names of their sisters. Carrots are related to parsnips, fennel, parsley, anise, caraway, cumin and dill. I didn't have a clue about many of these. I, have never seen carrots of other colors or at least, if I had, I didn't know, they were carrots. I am going to a good produce store, looking for purple or red carrots, to start my search. It is fun, shopping when purposely looking for new vegetables. I have definitely expanded my horizons. When, I was thinking about what to make with carrots, I
