How To Poach An Egg - Video

How To Poach An Egg

Poaching eggs is a very easy way to prepare eggs, but -- for some reason -- many people get nervous about how to poach an egg. So, I would like to show you just how easy poach [...]

Blueberry Compote

Easy Blueberry Compote

Do you know how to pronounce the word, "Compote?" Well...I didn't for the longest time. Like until just 5 minutes ago. Sigh. I knew how to cook a compote and what it was and that I liked [...]

Homemade Strawberry Jam

Jordan Cooks!
Homemade Strawberry Jam

Jordan has really been into cooking with us lately. Any time we start preparing lunch or dinner, she runs into the kitchen and frantically asks if she can help. She’s always loved making pretend food for us…like “pizza” made out of building blocks with a side of [...]

Homemade Breakfast Burritos

Dustin and I have searched far and wide for a good breakfast burrito. This has been harder than you might think. We found it once in the back of a hole-in-the-wall liquor store in Carpinteria.  Man, those were good!  Greasy, but delicious. Sadly, we live so very far away now and can no longer get [...]

Breakfast

Banana Nut Muffins

During the week, I am a happy camper to have my usual bowl of cereal with whatever fruit is on hand (usually bananas, strawberries or blueberries) along with my large cup of coffee for breakfast.  I probably could eat that every morning.  Dustin, on the other hand, has a self-imposed expiration date for how long [...]
