BREAKFAST TOMATO CUPS

“That’s too much bacon.”  Said by no one, ever. This is such a great dish because it gets everyone to the breakfast table with just the aroma.  However, if you are the only one to get to the table you can eat as many as you make.  Winner! INGREDIENTS: tomatoes, large, one per person eggs,…

EGG MUFFINS

I wonder if clouds ever look down and say, “Hey look, that one is shaped like an idiot.” In my quest for fast and easy, referring to recipes, I recently revisited the recipe for egg muffins.  This recipe is great because it’s fast, easy, and appropriate for clearing the fridge of dibs and dabs.  Dibs…

MICROWAVE OMELETTE

“I love the smell of possibility in the morning.” For those of you who have been following, my water and whine posts have reared their ugly little heads lately.   My kitchen is undergoing a minor remodel and I’m without a sink, countertop, and running water in the kitchen for twenty-nine more days.  But who’s…

SAY CHEESE

“Life is too short for fake butter, cheese, or people.” The other day I purchased a block of cheddar cheese.  What I didn’t notice on the label was the word, smoked.  Yes, I’d purchased a block of smoked cheddar.  To me, it had a richer flavor than regular cheddar.  A little too rich for my…

OMELETTE

“Many people die at 25 and don’t get buried until they’re 70.” The other day I made some eggs in the microwave using a round dish.  They cooked up nicely and took the form of the dish.  So I asked myself, “Self, what if I put the eggs in a rectangular dish and used that…

FINAL DIET

“My fitness goal is to get down to what I told the DMV.” As you noticed, I actually used the word “diet” instead of “eating plan”.  My eating plan wasn’t working.  Yes, while exploring healthy food I made healthy food.  Lots of it.  And then I ate lots of it.  Didn’t want all that healthy…

EATING RIGHT

“Now that all your worry has proved such an unlucrative business, why not find a better job.”  Hafiz It all started with my mother.  Or was it my grandmother?  Whatever.  Both of them were into home remedies, which led me to believe that I could take care of myself if I just had the right…

COLD-BREWED COFFEE

“Oh look!  It’s coffee o’clock!” I love coffee.  What I don’t love is making coffee in the early morning before my brain has been put on alert by a cup of coffee.  Sounds like a challenge. To get around this dilemma I tried brewing up a batch of coffee in my french press in the…
