Modified from Barefoot Contessa. Rich and savory. Serve with crusty french bread to sop up the juice.

I like to grab one for a sweet breakfast on the run.

Sweet Corn Griddle Cakes

Delicious when made with farm fresh eggs and sweet corn!

Minimalist Pea Soup

The Minimalist (Mark Bittman) recently posted this easy, fresh recipe on the NYTimes.

Butternut Squash Pancakes

With cinnamon, nutmeg, and walnuts. Yum!

Treasure Muffins

From the "Kids Cookbook!" I had growing up...

Egg Fried Rice

(You may notice there are shrimp in the photo. The first time I made this, I added a half pound of shrimp as I put in the cabbage ... delicious! But the recipe/nutritional facts don't include shrimp or any other protein but the egg.)

Cheddar Black Bean Burritos

With homemade tortillas. Freeze and reheat!

Kate B's Amazing Kale and Eggs

My friend Kate's simple, delicious recipe. I was a little scared by the idea of kale at first (it sounded like seaweed to me) but it is so buttery and crispy in this recipe, a perfect flavor and texture combo with the eggs. A fantastic way to get in a vegetable at breakfast!

Garden Vegetable Chili

Standard chili recipe with a zucchini thrown in ... yum.

Beth's Oven-Crisp Eggplant

Delicious oven crisped eggplant slices.

Turkey-Bacon Wrapped Dates

Lighter twist on a delicious holiday recipe... great way to get in a serving of fruit!

Artichoke with Curry Dip

I used to dip artichokes in butter, but this guiltless dip is so creamy and delicious, I'll never go back!

A great evening snack -- since artichoke takes a while to eat, I like to munch on this while I watch a movie.

Ellis Haller's French Pancakes

Lengthy cook-time, totally unhealthy. . . but absolutely delicious. . .

Nana's Potato Casserole

Probably the worst possible food for a diet if you eat too much . . . but small servings can be a delicious side-dish that aren't too overwhelmingly bad for you . . .

Hearty Lentil Soup

Delicious, wholesome, filling -- an easy, hearty meal! Can be made with vegetable broth substituted for vegetarians.
