Hannah Lu (Tharp) Flaugher. This is my youngest daughter & her husband, Ryan. They were recently married in December 2010. She and her husband, are expecting their first baby - Gideon Lee on Oct. 27. My daughters, Sarah & Hannah have been my right & left arms from the time that they were very young. I have had them in the kitchen cooking with me when they were yet too small to see over the cooking pot, even standing on a stool. Many times I would sit them on the counter to help stir batter or throw ingredients into a recipe I was mixing up. I've LOVED having them as my kitchen partners! Now they are all grown & cooking up their own masterpieces! The only problem is, we are 9 hours away from each other. I still desire to cook in my kitchen with them though, I miss it greatly! So to help remedy that - I've invited Hannah to come on board on my cooking blog as a c0-hostess. From time to time she will be posting her own wonderful creations! Things that she has created for her new husband. I think you will grow to be as excited about this prospect of new recipes, as I am! I've taught her everything I know and turned her loose! haha
Stay tuned to the blog for some new and exciting recipes from Hannah!


Hello to all of my Mom's fans! *ahem* Soon to be mine as well I hope! ;) Just to clarify something... The drink right in front of me (Hannah) is simply a regular coke, with cherry flavoring added. Lol Nothing more! :) I enjoy the little cherry on top with the little sword thingy, and put it there so as to not have to search for it amoungst the ice in the bottom of the cup. Lol I very much look forward to creating new recipes, and sharing them with each one of you. Please don't forget to post a comment on the recipes you try, and let me know how they turn out! :)

This one is super yummy! When my daughter Sarah and her friend, Amy were raising funds for their missions trip to Brazil - this was one of the top sellers every week at our bake sales. It always sold out first, and was being requested every week at the sales. I made these today for our Saturday morning soul winners / prayer breakfast. We had a ladies meeting last night and there was all kinds of left over fresh fruit to go with them. So I served Bacon Cheddar Pull Aparts, Scrambled Eggs and Fruit. It was the perfect breakfast combo! The muffins went really well with the eggs!


2 eggs
4 tablespoons milk
4 (7.5 oz) (10 count) cans refrigerated biscuits
1 lb bacon, diced and cooked
1 (8 oz) bag shredded Cheddar cheese (I've also used Shredded Monterey Jack)
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions (4 medium) (I use half of the tops too)
1 stick butter, melted

Optional: 1 small can diced green chiles, drained
Can also add: diced green pepper or diced red pepper if you like those.


  • Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 2 regular size muffin tins with cooking spray. In large bowl, beat eggs and milk with wire whisk until smooth.
  • Separate dough into individual biscuits; cut each into quarters. Gently stir biscuit pieces into egg mixture to coat evenly. Gently fold in bacon, cheese and onions. Spoon mixture evenly among 12 sprayed muffin tins. You could also use the foil muffin liners - but I would even spray those.
  • Drizzle melted butter evenly over top of pull aparts.
  • Place muffin tin on cookie sheet - the muffins tend to leak the butter a bit and the cookie sheet helps contain the mess.
  • Bake at 350°F. for 20 - 23 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from muffin tins.
  • Best served warm.
