I tried this signature Yorkshire pudding recipe for the first time two nights ago – and had a lot of fun doing it (ya, I only filled 10 of the 12 muffin tin holes. That happens – fine.)
As mentioned in other scrambled egg recipes here, adding just a small amount of salt to the eggs before cooking them not only enhances scrambled egg flavor, it also ensures the eggs will turn out soft and tender. Eggs cooked without salt tend to be tough and rubbery as shown in the comparison pictures below.
Kids are out of school for the summer, and they’ll be hungry. Great time to help them help themselves in the kitchen with a fast, fresh and flavorful breakfast or snack recipe they can make safely on their own.
The key to kid-safety is that this recipe doesn’t require the use of knife. The grapes can be eaten whole, and the banana can be broken into smaller pieces by hand as shown below.
But then just for humor’s sake, I tried ‘em – nose to the microwave as shown here (I don’t think the surgeon general recommends this) – and couldn’t believe my eyes.
Even better, I couldn’t believe how flavorfully they turned out, how easy it was to put them together, and how little there was to cleanup as I could mix, cook, and eat the eggs from the same bowl. Great!
Here two easy tips to ensure your scrambled eggs turn out fluffy, not rubbery. First, adding just a light dash of salt to the eggs before cooking them, as shown here,…
First, Happy Father’s Day!
Second, this breakfast works great any day, but especially on a day like we’re having today in the Northeast with clear blue skies, cool temps, dry air and a pretty good breeze. Just great to get out and rip it up on the bike, which I’m gonna’ do right now with a good friend who hasn’t been out on a bike for quite some time. Gonna’ be fun! Read more »
You know those days when things just don’t go right, and the harder you try, the louder the voice in your head screams, “C’mon, man. Wake up and smell the coffee!” Yesterday was one of those days for me – OW! – but instead of raging about it, I took that voice’s advice and laid down a new much more colorful version of Freshly Brewed Coffee Made Easy.
Already I feel better. And I’ve chugged enough freshly made brew along with a coconut bowl pancake to fuel me for an excellent rip on the bike as soon as I get this off.
Like I mentioned in the picture book recipe you can get by clicking any picture on this page, the key to a good cup of coffee is nailing the right ratio of cold water to ground coffee. Sounds easy enough. The only problem is that coffee makers are not calibrated to a standard “cup” size, and those cups are not the standard “1 cup = 8 ounces”. The way to deal with that is to use a measuring cup to to measure 12 ounces of water. Then pour that water either into the coffee maker reservoir or carafe with “cup” markings on it to see exactly how many cups your coffee machine makes with those 12 ounces of water. As shown in the pictures here, my coffee machine makes 3 cups of water with 12 ounces of water.
Yeah, there really is a microwave cooked coconut bowl pancake under all that terrifically fresh and flavorful topping. The segmented picture below outlines how it goes together.
Here’s what you need to make this pancake, which is a very easy to make variation on the microwave cooked bowl pancake that substitutes packaged pancake flour and cereal with high-protein coconut flour, shredded coconut and ground flaxseed for outstanding flavor and long-lasting energy.

Gorgeous weather here in the Northeast! Legs are screamin’ at me to get out on the bike – I’ll obey ‘soon as I fire this off!
Here’s what I had yesterday morning to power me through putting together the step-by-step picture book recipe you can get here and a 35+ mile bike ride later in the afternoon (admittedly, after a nut butter and toast snack shortly before hitting the road).
- Fantastic flavor that can be altered easily to suit your individual taste.
- Ease – you use the same bowl to mix, cook and eat the pancake, which makes both prep and cleanup as fast and easy as possible.
Here’s what you need to make a microwave cooked bowl pancake.
I mentioned in the last post I had another microwave cooked pasta one-bowl meal recipe ready to go. Here it is: Microwave Cooked Pasta with Instant Tuna Parmesan, which is just an easy variation on the Microwave Cooked Pasta with Instant Chicken Parmesan I posted about a week ago.
Briefly, all you need to do is add the ingredients you see below in a microwave oven safe bowl, heat for about 2 minutes in the microwave oven, and you’re done. Easy – and darn flavorful!
