Weaving a Tapestry

Cooking Covenant Group

Welcome! The Cooking Covenant Group holds meetings on the first Saturday of every month, from 3:00-4:30 PM. We sometimes meet up at church, and other times at someone's homes. All are welcome to attend. We share our experiences in a non-judgmental way, and we taste! Are you a total newbie with little to no experience? Great, come on by! Are you an expert in the kitchen? Fantastic! Do you only want to participate on certain topics? That's wonderful, we are glad you can stop by!


Breakfast Enchiladas Suizas Casserole

by Tracy Cook on 3/3/2024

We had breakfast for dinner on March 2 at Dawn and Elisa’s house, and this is what I brought! We devoured almost the whole pan, yum! Several people asked for the recipe, so here it is:

Breakfast Enchiladas Suizas Casserole

Assemble this the night before you want to eat it! 

  • Corn tortillas
  • Green enchilada sauce 1 large can  - I used Las Palmas brand
  • Diced Hatch green chiles about ½ cup or more
  • 6-8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 8 large eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup sour cream

This is for a 9X13 pan. 

Cut up the tortillas into bite-sized pieces. I don’t know how many I used, maybe 12? 15? Enough to cover the bottom of the pan completely.

Add about ½ to ⅔ cup diced Hatch chiles (I got mine at CostCo, but I saw some at HEB) and the can of green enchilada sauce. Stir all of that together to make sure every piece of tortilla is covered in yumminess. 

Top the tortillas with shredded cheese. You don’t want this layer too thick. You can always add more to your plate!!!

Add the eggs, milk, and sour cream to a blender and let it whir for about 5 seconds. You want the eggs whipped and airy.

Pour over the tortilla mixture, cover with foil, and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, preheat oven to 350 and leave the casserole on the counter to take the chill off. Bake, covered, for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 15-20 minutes, until eggs are set and cheese is starting to brown.

Two Events!

by Tracy Cook on 2/20/2024

Howdy, Friends and Neighbors!

Just a reminder that this month Cooking Covenant Group is hosting TWO events.

The first event is Saturday, March 2, from 3:00-4:30 at Dawn and Elisa’s home. We are hosting Breakfast Foods! Bacon! Or whatever you eat for breakfast, it doesn’t have to be complex or need 17 steps or anything.

The second event is Sunday, March 3, for Tapestry’s Birthday (and mine!) during Fellowship time. This will be a Chili Cook-Off and a Cupcake Bake-Off, or you can opt to bring toppings. I have a sign-up sheet (here) but this is just to know what to bring. You can sign up at church, or you can use this to email me at cooking@uutapestry.org

If you forget, or don’t want to bring anything, you can still eat all the yummy foods!

Mmmmm, church is delicious ❤️

March 2024 has TWO EVENTS!

by Tracy Cook on 2/12/2024

This month, Cooking Covenant Group is hosting TWO events!

The first event will be held on Saturday, March 2, at Dawn and Elisa’s home from 3:00-4:30 PM. This event will be Breakfast Foods, yum! If you eat it for breakfast, bring along your food and the story of why or how it came to be a ‘thing’. Is it easy to make? Can you make it ahead? Is it unbelievably delicious? Is it weird or funky but it works?! We would love to hear - and taste - it!

The second event is Sunday, March 3 (Tapestry’s 5th Birthday and MY birthday), during Fellowship time. This is a Chili Cook-Off and a Cupcake Bake-Off Competition! We will be voting, you could win prizes, the whole 9 yards! Do you make a great Red Chili? How about an amazing White Chili? Maybe yours is the best Vegan Chili?! Bring it in a Crock Pot, Instant Pot, or just a Soup Pot, already heated up and good to go. Please bring a label identifying your ingredients so we can identify food sensitivities. No amounts, we don’t need your Secret Recipe!

If you want to participate but don’t want to cook, we could always use toppings: Fritos, oyster crackers, cornbread, shredded cheese, diced onion, and sour cream.

For the Bake-Off, maybe you have a great gluten-free cupcake. Maybe yours is the best vegan cupcake around. Have the best dairy-free cupcake? Bring it! Or maybe you make the best full-of-everything cupcake that anyone has ever tasted. Awesome!

There will be a sign-up sheet for all of these items. Everyone is welcome to the food, whether you bring something or not.

Yummmm! Chocolate!!!! Cooking Covenant Group will be hosting a Chocolate Party up at church on Saturday, February 3rd, from 3:00-4:30. We would love for you to attend! We will have both savory and sweet offerings. I am bringing Chicken Mole for a savory dish, and something sweet that I haven’t picked out yet. I make a mean Texas Sheet Cake, so I might bring that… Remember, this can be ANY recipe! Last year we had someone bring Chocolate Cake Shots. Get creative with what ‘recipe’ means. Do you have a decadent Sipping Chocolate? Bring it! Let’s indulge in the delights of chocolate!

Our Schedule for 2024!

by Tracy Cook on 1/9/2024

Howdy, Friends and Neighbors! 

We met to discuss our plans for the year, and we are very excited to announce what we created! Remember, you do not need to be a member of the Cooking Covenant Group to attend. You can come to one meeting or all 11, or somewhere in between. All are welcome!

For February next month, we are having our Chocolate Event. Mmmmmm, chocolate! I will be bringing my Chicken Mole again, yum! Plus I will also bring something sweet. I don’t know what that will be yet, but I will keep you posted.

March will have two events. On March 2, we are making our favorite breakfast items! This event will be held at someone’s home. Mmmm! Stay tuned for the address. On March 3 (my birthday!!!) we are hosting a Chili Cook-Off after church. And this year, entries will earn cool prizes!!!

April is for Imposter Foods. We have had so much fun with this! Don’t miss this one!

May is Pickling. This is a new topic for us, and we are all very excited. Dawn and Elisa had a bumper crop of cucumbers last year, but that’s not the only thing we are planning to pickle. Keep checking back here for more details.

June is my favorite topic: Soups! Gazpacho, mmm! Hot or cold, soup is the BEST!

In July, we have planned two events. This year on July 7, we will be making Berry Goodness Treats for the Congregation. We decided to branch off from just peaches, because fresh peaches were so hard to come by last year. Bummer! But still, Berries!!! And on July 28, to coincide with Parents’ Appreciation Day, we will be cooking with the kids. More details to come…

In August, we will revisit another favorite, Homemade Pasta. This will also be in someone’s home, so please check back later.

September is Freezer Meals! This event has been a favorite! Hopefully I can host this one in my new-to-me home. Stay tuned for updates.

October is Spooky Foods, of course! This is another super-fun event, so come get ideas for your Halloween Party. We also will kick off our Green Bean Casserole collections this month.

November is…TAMALES! This will be hosted in someone’s home. Maybe mine, who knows?! Bread Communion is also this month, so get out your favorite bread or bread-based recipes!

December is the Holiday Treat Exchange, and we have completely revised and loosened up the ‘rules’. We will keep you posted!

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you have found at least one event that calls to you. Please comment below if you have any questions
