Tamy's Trial & Errors

Hello I am trying to get a collection of flavorful yet nutritious meals. These meals vary from ethnic to simple family fare. I'm not so interested in the calories as I am the sodium. Most of these are low fat and low sodium.

This is a really neat egg recipe I found in Cooking Light Magazine the May 2009 edition (page 148). I like cooking with ramekins and this is a truly easy menu.

Cookbook creator says: Awesome recipe. Good recipe to prepare ahead and have on hand for emergencies. Also 1/2'd the recipe for myself being solo. Also can change the spices like adding cayenne pepper, just not the ones to affect the calories or minerals.
