Egg in the hole – Egg in the basket. Which is it?

I have never met a recipe so easy to make.  One that makes you seem like a magician.  One where your child will deem you a super-parent of sorts.  One that you will not be able to resist.  One that is called by soooo many different names you might as well make up your own name for the dish and add it to the long list.  I am rather partial to “Moon Eggs” myself, but that’s because I enjoy all things from another planet ….  Now I’m getting off point.  Yes, this easy to do recipe will have you done with breakfast-making in 5 minutes flat, unless you decide to get fancy on us and cook up bacon or sausage…..  but who needs fancy when you got EGG IN THE HOLE?

Ingredients for egg in the hole:

a slice of sourdough bread

butter (room temperature)

an egg

Let’s start with our slice of bread.  Take a sharp knife and cut a circle in the middle.  Or if you have a circle cookie cutter that will work too.

Then take a dab of butter and spread on both sides of the bread.

In a frying pan over a medium flame allow pan to get hot.  Then place your bread in pan and add a dab of butter inside hole.  Allow to melt.

Now carefully crack your egg in the middle.  Like this.

Next let your egg cook on each side for 2 minutes or to your liking.  You can use cut out piece of egg as a little hat for your eggy.  Cute, right?

Confetti Easter Eggs | Cascarones para Pascua {How to}

There are certain things that will bring my memory right back to a specific time and place in my life, and confetti eggs rush all traces of Easter to the forefront of my mind. These little shells filled with colorful paper bits make any holiday a party. The kids not only have a field day making them, they have an even bigger thrill finding the right person to shower with confetti. Cascarones have been a part of my Easter since as far as I can ever remember and will continue to be a key player in all my Easter festivities.

What many people don’t realize CRAYON makes for a smear-free design, and allows your Easter eggs to look exactly like you imagined, and better.  It doesn’t take much to bring these fun confetti filled eggs to life, just a little pre-planning and crafty hands that will end up a little dye stained.  Isn’t that part of the fun?

What you’ll need for Confetti Eggs:

2 – dozen empty egg shells (once you remove the egg rinse and allow to dry)

crayons

Food coloring

vinegar

a spoon

confetti

glue stick

tissue paper (cut into squares)

How to make dye: Place a tablespoon of vinegar in a small bowl, then add the color of your choice with a mixture of food coloring or a single color. next pour in a 1/2 cup of room temperature water. Repeat with the next color in another bowl. Set to the side.

Take a empty dry egg shell and draw the design of your choice with a crayon. Then dip into the color bath. Remove from color bath and set to the side to dry. Repeat with next egg.

Once eggs are dry, fill with confetti halfway, then take a square of tissue paper and with a glue stick go all around the edge…now place on top of egg hole to seal in confetti.

BOMBS AWAY!!!!!

Happy Easter!

With Love, From The Two Good Eggs!

Starbucks has a New Coffee in Town: Blonde Roast

Starbuck's Blonde Veranda Blend

The smell of freshly brewed coffee gets my blood going, knowing I’m about to enjoy a cup of joe and will have the vigor to conquer my day.  Here’s the great news…. Starbucks just introduced their new Blonde Roast which is roasted for a shorter time giving this coffee a lighter body and mellow flavor. Blonde Roast is 100% Arabica coffee and now sits next to it’s kin Medium and Dark Roast.  I tried them all today and found a special quality in each blend.

Ignore the lipstick on the rims of the cups.

 Yay! Our options are expanding, not only that, they have  new breakfast items too. Yes. Yes. Yes. Petite vanilla bean scones. Super delish little scones that tasted more like a cross between a cake and cookie loaded with vanilla beans and covered in a sugary glaze. Kissable I tell you.

I also tasted the new egg white and sausage wrap…. Can you say HEALTHY? I was a bit confused at first because it’s really flavorful and at the same time good for you.  Those folks over at Starbucks are really making mornings on the go a little more yummy for everyone!

One last thing…. if you buy a pouch of Starbucks coffee and once your done drinking it all, simply take the empty bag into a Starbucks location for a free tall cup of your brew of choice. Nice right?

Our Breakfast Adventure Begins….

Ericka & Nicole: The Two Good Eggs

So they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  The time of day when one is still focusing, connected with hopes and dreams.  We call it the “breakfast feeling” and our mission is to suspend all of us in that particular moment. The first sip of morning coffee, the sunrise kissing our face,  spreading butter,  spreading a smile, cracking eggs and cracking jokes.

We are The Two Good Eggs and we invite you to join us for breakfast. We will share with you “breakfast feeling” moments and antics, recipes and sometimes, something brunchy worth mentioning.

We hope you enjoy our breakfast chronicles.  Pop in and say “good morning!” when you do.

*raising glass of orange juice and cup of coffee*
Here’s to you having a “breakfast feeling” kind of a day!
