I’ve resisted Costco for years and years, mostly because I’m Read the rest of this entry »

Avocado Eggs Have Gone Viral… But Learn From My Mistakes Before You Make Them!

I saw an article about a recipe that looked so good that I had to made it the very next day. Avocado eggs! And apparently I’m not the only fan. The instructional video in the article has been seen over 18 million times since it was posted last week… so avocado eggs have gone viral!

The recipe is charmingly easy: Read the rest of this entry »


Hard Boiled Eggs…In the Oven!

August 28, 2013

I make a lot of hard-boiled eggs. Sometimes I get on kicks where I’m boiling a dozen eggs a week. Hard-boiling eggs isn’t a difficult task, but here’s a way to make them that’s even easier. Did you know you can bake whole eggs in the oven?

About a year ago (or maybe longer), a high school friend posted a link to my Facebook page about baking eggs. I wanted to try it at the time, but one thing led to another and it never happened, and then I forgot about it. In recent weeks, I’ve stumbled upon a couple more articles and posts about this method, and decided to give it a try. I consulted a few websites, but they all basically say the same thing. It’s so freakin’ simple.

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Put your eggs in the oven.  I did a dozen of them:

Things I Love About Sweden, Part One

June 10, 2013

I’m nearing the conclusion of my time in Sweden. Here are some more awesome things about this part of the world.

1) Fresh Eggs. As I mentioned in a previous post, my friends Katherine and Peter have a bunch of chickens, and those chickens lay eggs. So Katherine and Peter have super-fresh, organic eggs and they’re delicious.

Katherine made us scrambled eggs one morning, and they were probably the best eggs I’ve had in a looong time. I usually very rarely eat egg yolks, but I didn’t hesitate to make an exception:

That’s about 2 eggs worth, and the dollop at the top is a Swedish product called Kalles Kaviar, a caviar paste that’s very popular. A little bit goes a long way – it’s very salty – but it’s good. The third item on the plate brings me to item #2: Read the rest of this entry »


Double Yolks. PLUS, Watch the Infomercial Online!

April 3, 2013

EXCITING NEWS! You know how I’m featured in Richard Simmons’ new infomercial for Project H.O.P.E.? The infomercial clocks in at a full 30 minutes, but the online version is only 7 minutes, and I was left on the editing room floor. So unless you set your DVR, or happened to catch it on basic cable in the middle of the night, there’s a good chance you haven’t seen my little part of the infomercial yet.

UNTIL NOW! Check it out: the portion featuring the long-term success stories (me and my friends Joanne and Lori) is now on YouTube! It’s only 80 seconds – watch right here:

Big thanks to my buddy Jon. Check out some behind-the-scenes photos from the infomercial shoot here.

Moving on…
