Italian Baked Eggs

I have been on an egg rampage as of late. Poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and now baked eggs! Just like poached eggs, baked eggs are set on the outside, but those beautiful golden yolks are just as runny and gooey on the inside!

We also know that everyone wants to celebrate the season with (you guessed it) food. We’re just intuitive like that....more

Healthy Holiday Recipe: Maple Infused Shredded Brussel Sprouts

It is a blustery, rainy cold day here in the Northeast. We are having what we New Englanders know as a Nor'Easter or, in other words, a really bad storm.  Luckily where I live we are getting buckets of rain instead of shovels of snow, but that leads to its own host of problems, like my newly groomed dog begging to go outside and romp in what looks like small ponds in my yard....more
