Happy Birthday Girl!

Try Eric Ripert's blender hollandaise. It's nearly foolproof and fairly easy to make. I make a half recipe for the 2 of us.

note the sliced Turkey Sausage to try and make it healthy

A bit on the sweet side for us; don't think I'll buy this again, not a $2.84USD + tax. We only ate 2 of them and took the rest, still warm btw, next door.
I'm wondering if they've clued in next door yet that they're getting my rejects?

Lately, I've been really into making "slow cooked" scrambled eggs -- I put a pot on low heat, crack the eggs with some butter while the pan is still cold, and stir frequently to prevent sticking.

But what's been fun about it is I've been incorporating a bacon vinaigrette and sharp cheddar cheese right before serving.

It's the perfect topping for sourdough toast because it is so rich.

It's got me hungry just thinking about it. I might go make it right now :)

That seems interesting, SSS.
I have a small (1 1/2 qt ) crock pot and will try this.

We had blueberry lemon pie for a treat breakfast this morning. I figured if we do donuts occasionally, why not break into the pie that took too long to cool last night? It was a bit runny and needs a little tweaking, but it was still delicious! Click image for larger version

I made something this morning, that is not traditional, by any means, but I promise, it would wake anybody up!

I made a favorite dip of mine - a Yucatan type pumpkin seed dip, but I used butternut squash seeds, instead. The original recipe only has 3/4 c of pumkin seeds, plus some tomatoes, cilantro, and chives, plus one pan roasted habanero - they love their habaneros in Yucatan! When I make it, I stretch it with a can of beans - whatever I have on hand at the time, and today it was a can of black beans, yet with only one frozen chocolate habanero, and is still very hot.

I found out early on that the squash seeds that still have the shells have even more flavor than the usual hulled pumpkin seeds. But before I had the Vitamix, I had to sift them, to get the large pieces of shells out.

Sunday Brunch - Biscuits with sausage gravy, basted eggs, Country Hash Brown Potatoes, mimosas, and espressos. I intend to ask the president to fly over my kitchen and declare it a Federal disaster area so I can apply for Superfund relief money to clean it up.

These days, I only cook scrambled eggs "low and slow." I go for about medium low on the stove, and stir a lot. It makes such creamy eggs. I've never tried incorporating any kind of vinaigrette. Sounds interesting, though.

A "local-style" (reads as from Hawaii local ) favorite
Crispy pan-fried Spam® with scrambled Eggs,
steamed White Rice and of course Aloha™ brand Shoyu (Soy Sauce)
with a sprinkle of Furikake on top

The only thing missing was a glass of POG aka Passion Fruit-Orange-Guava juice to wash it all down with .. ONO (delicious in Hawaiian) !!!
