When you find yourself with surplus eggs, look online for some different egg recipes…. I found lots of ideas

The one thing I don’t like about online shopping is that you can’t physically see your basket.  I managed to completely overbuy eggs this week as two different brands appeared in my Favourites list and  I bought them twice. Then my husband came home from work that evening and said “I brought home some eggs because I really fancied some”. He never does that, so why this week?  Really, you couldn’t make it up.

So we have had our favourite scrambled eggs, he has taken some hard boiled to work today, and I’m having an omelette for lunch….  But I’m still up to my eyes in surplus eggs. So I thought I would look for some more ideas.  I haven’t tried all of these yet, but I will be working my way through them…..

Ella from naturally Ella cooks the same way I do – by trial and error. I’m fairly sure when I make this I will experiment even more, but it’s a great base to start from….. Read more

Breakfast can sometimes be a struggle. You want to eat well but you’re tired and nothing’s ready and… you’re tired. It can be particularly hard to juggle breakfast if it’s a busy morning and you have to be out of the house early.

This is such a good idea to prepare a nutritious breakfast the night before –  and I love the spinach and eggs combo. I’m definitely going to try these. For my UK readers, 350 Fahrenheit is 180 Centigrade. Read more


Soy Salmon with Egg-Fried Rice –  Recipe Wisdom

As a Disaster Chef, making sure the rice is cold before trying to stir-fry it has been a revelation to me. I used to buy pre-packed egg fried rice because mine always looked like pebbledash, but this is the answer.

Mmm egg fried rice is definitely one of my comfort foods, and having a piece of salmon with it will help me to believe it’s healthy….. I will probably add some greens to this meal – spinach or maybe samphire. Read more


Egg White Vegetable Scramble – The Complete Herbal Guide


This is kind of the way my omelettes turn out when they stick to the pan. But sometimes it’s good to set out to do a scramble – then you are not disppointed.  Personally I’m a full egg type of person and egg white only is not really my thing, but go for it if it’s yours…… Read more
