We all know the mantra by now: breakfast is an important way to start your day off right. But what we know and what we actually do can be two quite different things. ;) If you're like me, it's all too easy to fall into the same-old, same-old routine -- especially when you don't have much time. (For me, that often means grabbing coffee and a container of yogurt.)
The incredible edible egg—it's not only one of the most economical proteins available (at $1.73 average price per dozen in 2011), it’s fast and easy to cook. Eggs are used in so many recipes not only for their mild and appealing flavor, but also their nutrition and hold-it-together binding qualities.
Meatballs used to be one dish I shied away from. The mixing, shaping, browning in the pan ... it was too much bother at the last minute. But then I discovered that meatballs are the perfect food to bake. In just 5 minutes I could mix up a batch, scoop and shape them -- and then bake 'em.
