Omelette Cups with Ham & Peppers

Omelette Cups with Ham & Peppers

Hopefully everyone is having a great week! :) I love repurposing leftovers. Not reheating, that’s gross. Nope, it’s fun for me to make leftovers into a completely new dish. We had some leftover ham from Easter, so I thought it would be cool to make a classic omelette with ham and cheese. Because I can’t...

Happy Easter everyone! I’m Ukrainian…and even if you don’t know anything about that amazing country, you probably can instantly recognize Ukrainian Easter eggs!

I’ve been trying to eat eggs more often, especially since posting 20 facts about eggs last week. They’re just so darn healthy for you! Eating eggs in the morning also helps you lose weights, so I figured it was a good breakfast habit to get into. To be honest, I don’t feel like waking up...

Garlicky Pepper Packed Egg Whites

Garlicky Pepper Packed Egg Whites

I’ve said it before, I’m not a big egg person, but I do like egg whites! They cook quickly, can be used in so many different ways, and are healthily delicious. In this recipe, I throw in a lot of red bell peppers, sliced thin (or red sweet peppers). Combined with a nice amount of...
Eggy Penne with Vegetables

Eggy Penne with Vegetables

I’ve noticed that vegetable pasta dishes often lack any protein! Because of this observation, I decided to toss four eggs into a simple veggie pasta medley. The cheese adds excellent flavor, with subtle hints of garlic, spice, and sweet sundried tomatoes. I love the thin slices of zucchini scattered throughout the dish too. I first...
Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict

Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict

To me, Eggs Benedict is a fancy breakfast item that’s reserved for special occasions. Because I think that, I decided to pair it with another fancy ingredient – smoked salmon. The saltiness of the salmon compliments it perfectly, even though it’s more delicate than the traditional ham/bacon pairing. It’s a nice twist on a classic....

The outside of the omelet has a slight crisp texture from the browning,...

I made this quiche when my mom reminded me that my dad was trying to eat less meat…after taking a bite, he didn’t miss meat anymore! The asparagus is slightly crisp, cheese creamy, and crust flaky. It all plays well together. I serve it with some mixed greens on the side. It’s an awesome breakfast...

Mediterranean Quiche (Crustless)

The flavors of the Mediterranean in healthy slice of quiche! I love the color combination – little flecks of red, black, and green scattered throughout the white of the eggs. It tastes great with a crust…but since I’m on a diet right now, I figured I would make the crustless kind! However, feel free to...

Egg-White Broccoli Quiche (Crustless)

This simple and quick quiche is incredibly flavorful…you’ll be surprised it’s low calorie! To keep it light, I use skim milk and egg whites while taking advantage of roasted veggie flavor. To save on prep time, I also use egg whites from a carton. I like my quiches thinner, but if you like it thick,...
