Spring Veggie Scramble

Spring Veggie Scramble

By

It’s hard to improve on basic scrambled eggs. They form the cornerstone of nutritious breakfasts the world over. But if you were to try to improve the classic scramble, an easy way to do it would be to add vegetables. That way you skyrocket the vitamin and mineral content while adding a hearty crunch to each bite.

Why not make an omelet instead of a veggie scramble?…

Duck Egg Omelet

Duck Egg Omelet

By

I’ve gone on record saying that I think duck meat is better than bacon, but you know what else is great? Duck eggs! And since omelets are easy, it only makes sense that I’d put together a duck egg omelet.

“But Raj,” you’re thinking, “are duck eggs different than chicken eggs?” I’m glad you asked. They sure are. In fact, my blog buddy Holley compared chicken eggs, duck eggs, and quail eggs (they’re so cute!). …

Shrimp and Mint Pesto Zoodles

By

This meal has me thinking spring. The lemony shrimp and the mint pesto taste so clean and fresh together, and using zoodles (or zucchini noodles) keeps it light and satisfying.

To make zoodles, I recommend you get a spiralizer. They are inexpensive and completely worth it, because once you start incorporating zoodles into your dishes, you won’t want to stop. I make zoodles a lot, especially in the summer when I have a ton of zucchini in my garden and need creative ways to eat it (there’s only so much zucchini bread a girl can and should eat).…
