Revised Ukrainian Cabbage and Meatballs

A friend of ours from the Ukraine came to visit not long after we settled in California. As a treat he made dinner that night cooking up cabbage rolls (Holubtsi) among other delectables. Stephen is not so much into trying new things. You could call […]

Cauliflower Fritter with Spicy Dipping Sauce

I love crab cakes and tuna cakes even apple fritters but I have never heard of cauliflower fritters before. Zucchini yes. Cauliflower no. Sadly I was not that thrilled with the results. The fritters were in much need of flavor. So I thought and thought […]

Kids Choice: Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Bacon and Toast

Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Bacon and Toast

Tonight is movie night. The featured showing: “Finding Nemo”. I love Pixar movies because the scripts are genuinely well done and they always feature beautiful music in their films. Movie night is also kids choice. The kids decide what we eat for dinner. Mason, our five year old, decided to make cheesy scrambled eggs with bacon and toast.

Large Eggs, about 2 eggs per person
Shredded cheddar cheese
Bacon slices, 1 slice per person
Slices of bread, 1 slice per person
Butter and Jam, optional
Salsa, optional

Heat a skillet over medium heat. In a large bowl whisk the eggs until well blended, even in color and slightly frothy, about 2 minutes. Melt a little butter in the pan or spray with cooking spray. Pour egg mixture into heated skillet. Let the eggs begin to set. Use a spatula to gently lift and push the eggs from the edge of the pan to the center; tilting the pan to evenly distribute the runny parts. Continue pushing the eggs toward the center until the eggs are set. Turn off the heat. Carefully flip the eggs over to cook until no longer wet. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Meanwhile, cook bacon until the fat is no longer translucent and the bubbling grease turns foamy. Toast bread in a toaster until golden brown. Slather with butter and jam, if using.

Bourbon Chicken

This recipe for bourbon chicken should be called “virgin” bourbon chicken because there is not an ounce of alcohol in the recipe. Which is the reasoning behind my choosing to make this version. I admit I was a bit nervous about the outcome as I […]
