It feels a little odd to go back to the normal scheduling around here. Thank you for reading all about the SNAP Challenge and I appreciated hearing from all of you who commented, tweeted or emailed me to weigh in!

You all know that I eat eggs all the time. Most of the time they are consumed in a very simple way – scrambled or fried. But weekends sometimes require something special.

These eggs can definitely be qualified as special – without fussy ingredients or crazy techniques. Poaching the scrambled eggs keeps them perfectly soft and creamy and is much easier than actually poaching a whole egg. Richie is the only one who has poaching success in our house thus far.

The goat cheese sauce adds luxurious flavor – serve it for a special weekend breakfast alongside some pumpernickel toast for dipping and a mimosa if you dare!

My second shipment of Copper River Salmon arrived last week and let me just say – I wish salmon season was year-round. I’m not sure that I’ve ever had salmon so fresh and so delicious. Even though I’ve always wanted to make a fish tartare – I’ve always been a little apprehensive. Partly because my
