    Why do so many of your recipes skip something? Your directions on this one say nothing about the 1/4 c. cheese in the ingredient list. - 5/3/14

    Skip the low fat and eat real food - use whole eggs, and get all the nutrients they have to offer. Not only is it much better tasting, but it is healthier and low carb.
    Don't be afraid of fat! Your brain needs cholesterol!

    According to Medical News Today website: Egg yolks contain at least seven essential minerals, including: calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium & zinc. Also 5 B vitamins, and vitamins A, E, D and K. Why not use whole eggs in your recipes? - 5/3/21

    Recipe instructions don't say where to use the 1/4 c. of cheese. Also the Tbsp of cheese is not counted in the nutritional Info. Try proofreading. Either way asparagus omelet is delicious. - 5/3/19

    The photo shows an omelet with cheese inside and nine in top. The recipes talks about sprinkling some cheese on top, but says nothing about putting cheese inside the omelet. Why is it that your photos rarely match your recipes? Makes me wonder if they are even tested ... - 5/3/16

    Bad
    As usual, there is a glaring mistake. The cheese in the list of ingredients has 2 amounts but neither one is included in the directions. - 5/3/21

    Ok, use 2 whole eggs, yolks have important nutrients, use liquid egg whites, calories are minimal. Use leftover asparagus, more than 1/2 cup, asparagus has barely any calories! Minced garlic helps. - 5/3/16
