Popeye Egg Recipe

The Popeye egg goes by many names- toad in a hole, egg in a basket, eggs in toast, cowboy egg, and one-eyed jack among others. When I was kid, though, it was always Popeye egg, and it was a family favorite for breakfast. It's an extremely simple recipe with infinite possibilities for customization. In fact, I've been toying around with the idea of replacing the bread in the recipe with a ham steak with an egg in it. For the purposes of this post, I'm going to take you back to the Popeye egg that I enjoyed as a child many mornings. There's no pretense with a Popeye egg. In fact, you can cook it, serve it, and eat it all while wearing your pajamas.

How To Eat Out In London On A Budget

Well hey there foodie friends! I just got back from an awesome trip to London and Paris with my college girlfriend Brandy. This was my first trip to Europe, and I went prepared to take it all in, and report back to everyone at home. I took a million photos, and overshared to Facebook already, but I have been saving my food photos just to share with you guys!

When we arrived in London at 7:30AM we were hungry, by the time we took the tube, and a double-decker bus to our AirBnB accommodation we were starving. So we headed straight over to Leadenhall Market, I had read that this was the market that Diagon Alley from Harry Potter was inspired by. I had also read that markets were a good place to get food from food stands (read:cheaper).

Munchpak Review

Hello foodie friends!!!! First of all I've missed you so much. We've been gone for a bit. I'm pretty sure October is just a hard time of year for us. But never fear, we'll always be back! Now on to the show.

This week I got the opportunity to try the MunchPak box. I was excited to get to try some of the tasty treats because one, I love snacks, and two, I love fun things. When the box arrived I was ready to get my life.

Apple Pie Applesauce Recipe

Happy Hump Day foodie friends! It's one of the best times of the year when it comes to food as far as I'm concerned. I love good, hearty home cooking. Things that cook all day in a crockpot, rich smells that permeate the home, a feeling of love cooked in. Ahhh, I'm seriously obsessed.

This week I undertook a challenge. As you saw last time, I'm always inspired by what other people are making. Pinterest is a great source of crockpot foods - oatmeals, soups, drinks, and of course...applesauce. So why can't I?

Recipe Review: Pesto Recipe (Dairy Free, Vegan)

Pesto was one of the first loves of my life. As a child, my parents and I would slather a Boboli crust and throw it in the oven, and we would devour slice after slice until it was gone. And then I grew up, and lactose intolerance happened. No more pesto bread. No more pesto pizza. No more pesto sauce anything. No more anything good. Ever.

The world was a dark place.

And it stayed that way for a few years. Then I woke up and said eff cheese- I want to EAT! Since that day, I have dairy freed, or veganized so many recipes. And it hasn't been that bad. You know what is bad? Children who don't have anything to eat. My little food problems need to stay in perspective.

Rosemary Bacon Popcorn Recipe

This one time at Cinetopia... I had a really good batch of popcorn! It was regular old popcorn, but they had a rosemary bacon butter pump that I took FULL advantage of. Every time I've gone to Cinetopia after that night, they didn't have the rosemary bacon butter again. Needless to say, I was very disappointed. This, of course, inspired me to make my own version. It's actually an extremely easy recipe, but it takes time to get the best flavor from your oil. I let my oil sit with the bacon and rosemary in it for a full week, and it had a perfect infusion of the smoky and aromatic flavors that I wanted. Really, you could use this idea and flavor the oil with anything you want. It could be a fun experiment!
