It should come as no surprise that I love eggs. I’ll eat them anytime of the day, in just about any way shape or form and with just about anything. Sweet or savory, eggs are a staple in my diet.

Eggland’s Best sent me a coupon for a dozen eggs and a Flip Cam to share an egg recipe with you all. So exciting! When I thought about my favorite ways to have eggs I struggled a bit but decided on a simple, delicious and healthy meal and one of my favorites, kale & eggs.

You’ve probably seen Eggland’s Best eggs in the store before but what makes them different is that the hens are fed an all-vegetarian diet with healthy grains, soybean oil, flax seed etc. which in turn produces an egg that is nutritionally different and has less saturated fat, more vitamin E, B12, D, Omega 3′s and more lutein when compared to ordinary eggs. (I’m not sure what qualifies as an ordinary egg)

Enjoy the video and please don’t judge me too harshly! :)

bacon onion tart

bacon & onion tart

Using puff pastry makes things so easy – in addition to tasty – and when it’s topped with caramelized onions and bacon? Well, I’d say it’s about perfection. You’ve got a buttery, flaky crust, sweet onions,

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that most Americans are lacking in the whole-grain department. But it really isn’t that hard to fit whole grains in your diet! It is recommended that we should be eating at least 3 servings of whole grains/day. I say there’s no reason that most of your grains can’t be

tasting wine: I

It should come as no surprise that wine is my beverage (alcoholic) of choice. For the record, I’m going to have to go with water/coffee/tea for my non-alcoholic beverage of choice. It may be a surprise (or not) that beyond knowing what I like – I don’t know a whole lot about wine. Back in

cincinnati chili

I’ve never had Cincinnati Chili before and it hasn’t been until recently that I’ve even been tempted to try. But when Bon App├ętit featured a story about different regional chili recipes, it wasn’t the Squash and Black Bean California-inspired Chili that caught my eye, it was the thinner Cincy Chili, customarily served over spaghetti that

in my cupboard: seeds of change rice & beans

Some inventions are just plain smart. Like fully seasoned rice and beans, that take just 90 seconds in the microwave. That are organic. And tasty. Sure, I love homemade brown rice, but I don’t always have the 40 minutes it takes to make it. Part of my slowing down efforts are not spending so much
