Oven 375 time 15-20 minutes

One of my favorite snack foods is nachos, tortilla chips, round, triangle, etc., but my fav are the scoops. I love that you can scoop up some yumminess and not battle your toppings falling off. I also love to use them on the bottom of what I call my nacho casserole. I have made in the past this casserole with all kinds of toppings, mainly what I had on hand and of course you have to have cheese, sour cream and even avocado if you...

Recipe follows, please read entire recipe through as there are some unexpected ingredients.

I did, however have a couple of oranges hanging out for a while waiting to be the something different in a recipe., and so this was born, and I might add don't say gross until you...

I love quiche, but have stated before not a fan of pie crusts. One of my favorite ways to bypass the crust is to use cheese, thin slices, and forget the shredded cheese in the filling, rather using more healthier choices to fill in for the cheese. Today I had poached a huge piece of fresh salmon and had a lot leftover so decided to make a quiche from some of the leftovers, again I say leftovers are always a gift if you are a cook, that and a little bit of i...
