FEAST / PARMESAN BAKED EGGS



This is the first post in my food series - hurray!  Now I already know I am really, really terrible at baking, but for some reason I fare better in the breakfast department.  I found it only fitting to start this off with a favorite fancy breakfast of mine:  baked eggs.

This recipe is based off of this one I found and tried a while back, but the great thing about eggs are they're so versatile and can be customized basically any way your palate desires!  Here's how I made mine:

-     -     -     -     -

INGREDIENTS:
1-3 organic cage-free eggs
3 tablespoons butter
2-3 tablespoons heavy cream
4 strips of bacon (or any cured meat -- pancetta might be nice!)
grated parmesan or romano cheese
coarse ground salt
freshly ground pepper

STEPS:
• preheat oven to 400º
• place one tablespoon of butter on the bottom of each ramekin you'll be using for your eggs
• pour a little of the heavy cream to coat the bottom of your dish
• chop cooked bacon and add to dish (you can also add some spinach or sun dried tomatoes for a twist!)
• carefully crack your desired amount of eggs on top of your mixture
liberally sprinkle salt and ground pepper over your eggs
• add parmesan or romano cheese
• bake for 12-14 minutes depending on the consistency you like your eggs.
* note: because of the cream, your eggs might look a little runny still -- this is perfectly normal!


That's it!  Easy-peasy right?

I hope you guys have fun with this one.  If you're a feta type of person, I imagine it might be good with that too but I despise feta cheese!  The great thing about this recipe is it can honestly go several different ways and still tastes just as delicious.  Happy breakfasting.

    Great minds have similar wish lists.

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El Niño weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe a…

LET'S CATCH UP, SHALL WE?

(silly photo of me saying, "whaaat?"  by the husband)

Hi friends. I wanted to take a minute to catch up together and fill you in on a few new things! To anyone new to our space, thank you for visiting and I'm glad you're here. You may have noticed the look around the blog has been much simpler and clean. It's something I'm trying to do not only in just the blog, but with my life itself... a bit of a spring-cleaning, if you will. My Facebook feed filled with "friends" I haven't talked to in ages, a twitter name that no one could pronounce or understand, blog columns and categories I couldn't keep up with, even pressure to post when I know I should just be enjoying my time with my family. The list is seeming never-ending for a lot of us out there, and I just wanted to be honest and say that I too have gotten "stuck" one time or another, and here's a few things I did to streamline my way out of it:

• Keep as many things cons…
