Eggs Benedict

This morning I again took advantage of some of my lovely finds at the farmer’s market the other day! I made eggs benedict, for the first time ever! I used the delicious eggs we got at the farmer’s market. I didn’t have any ham, so I used sliced heirloom tomatoes (from the farmer’s market) instead. I poached the eggs, put the eggs and tomato slices on top of bagel halves (instead of English muffins), and topped with a homemade hollandaise sauce. I reduced the recipe to about 2/3 (using two egg yolks instead of 3), and I substituted sour cream for part of the butter. It was great! It was such a filling breakfast, however– I was only able to eat one egg!

Blueberry Muffins

One of my new favorite things to make for breakfast is blueberry muffins! I’ve made this recipe several times now, and they’ve always turned out great. The only change I’ve made is that I use 3/4 cups of sugar instead of 1 1/2 cups. It still tastes sweet, but not overly sweet. I’ve made it using both frozen and fresh blueberries, and it tastes great either way! I also tend to make it with soy milk (either plain or vanilla flavored), since Scott is lactose sensitive. These muffins are great; I make these about once every two weeks!
