How to Make Perfectly Fried Eggs

Spring is here and the eggs are abundant. We have eggs coming out of our ears!  So many eggs, that I find myself giving away cartons to friends and family.  One of my favorite, easy and simple ways to enjoy some of those eggs is to fry them up.  I love fried eggs.  Over medium is my favorite preparation.  I usually don’t give much thought to frying eggs, but today, I thought I’d share just how I make fried eggs.  It’s super simple and fun, plus delicious!

Game Day Buffalo Stuffed Peppers

I love buffalo anything!  Being part Italian, I also love a mean stuffed pepper. As game day approaches, I thought a fun and clever food would be to stuff some peppers up buffalo style. They are easy and super pleasing and of course, peppers help to make this dish healthy. This dish preps up in no time and is a great way to recycle leftovers too. These buffalo stuffed peppers are a family pleaser. The leftovers also re-heat wonderfully. That is if there are any! For an extra kick, try topping the peppers with blue cheese instead of mozzarella and bake as usual.  Here’s how they came together:

Easy Pasta Fagioli Soup

I absolutely love pasta fagioli soup. My family does too and after the blizzard that we all went through a few days ago, it was the number one request for dinner. This soup is super yummy and comes together for a hearty, healthy and filling family meal in around 30 minutes. There is nothing like warming up to a bowl of delicious homemade soup after shoveling heavy wet fallen snow. I think you will enjoy this one too. Serve it up with a nice crusty baguette. I promise, you might find yourself licking the bowl after!

Bruschetta Quiche

Finally, the chickens have returned to laying eggs on a regular basis. This is how I know spring is surely here! This week I found myself needing to use up eggs. My all time favorite way to use up eggs is to make quiche. Try serving this lighter variety quiche with a salad or a cup of soup. Either way, it’s delicious!

Homemade Mushroom and Rice Soup

I’ve been under the weather this past week and trying to resume eating. I haven’t really eaten anything in days and have decided to ease back into it with soups. I have always loved soups and this past week, I was inspired by Once Upon a Time in a Bed of Wildflowers‘ link up to this week’s blog hop. I had the strength to gather what I needed at the grocery store to create a hearty, delicious soup that seemed to feel just right in my empty belly.

Cheese Tortellini and Basil Bake

Yesterday, was one of those crazy, busy days and there did not seem to be enough time in the day. The majority of our day was occupied by a trip up to Boston. What should have been a 4 hour trip turned into a 7 hour ordeal. Exhausted, I came home and crashed. My son woke me up at 5:20pm. It was dark. I still had chicken chores to do and dinner to make. Days like that always call for easy dishes. I was craving comfort food and my Cheese Tortellini and Basil Bake was just what the doctor ordered!
