Have you heard of cake in a mug? Well, this is just as easy, if not easier!
These eggs are perfect for hectic mornings on the run! Ready in under two minutes, these eggs come out with that same classic flavor of stovetop scrambled eggs. You can eat them straight out of the mug or plop them on a breakfast sandwich!
The other great thing about these is there’s less clean up. You mix and cook the eggs in the same mug. No pan to clean just a single coffee mug.
Feel free to add different seasonings or cheeses, this recipe is totally versatile!
1 teaspoon butter
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon whole milk (or cream)
¼ teaspoon salt
Pinch black pepper
¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese
In a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave the butter until melted, about 30 seconds.
Brush it all over the bowl.
Break the eggs into the bowl. Add the milk, salt, and pepper. Whisk to combine.
Microwave the eggs, uncovered, for 45 seconds.
Gently stir the eggs with a fork, then stir in the cheese. Microwave until fluffy and set but not completely dry, about 45-60 more seconds. Serve immediately.
A really simple recipe that comes together in a snap. Pork tenderloin stuffed with bacon, jalapeno peppers, cream cheese and cheddar cheese, this recipe is bursting with flavor!
1 pork tenderloin, the package usually comes with 2- freeze the other one or double the recipe if cooking for a large crowd
2 jalapeno peppers , cored and minced
4 oz cream cheese
1 cup cheddar cheese , grated
1 tbsp chili powder
6-8 bacon slices, crumbled
Preheat the oven to 350°F
Cook the bacon in a large skillet. The skillet will be used for searing the pork, so don’t clean it out after the bacon has been cooked. Once the bacon is cooled crumble it.
Trim the pork tenderloins of any fat and membrane.
To butterfly the pork tenderloin, use a sharp knife to make a horizontal cut about one-third of the way up from the bottom of the tenderloin. Flip open the thicker, top flap (like opening a book). Then, take the knife and cut another horizontal line through the thicker part of the tenderloin to open it up even more (like a trifold). You should now have a flat surface of meat.
Put a piece of plastic wrap over the laid out pork and pound it out to about a 1/3 inch thickness, be careful not to tear it.
Once the pork has been butterflied, rub both sides with the Barbeque seasoning of your choice.
You can make your own Barbeque rub or take the easy road and purchase one. My favorite is Good Shit, yes you read that right! LOL! You can find it on Amazon. There’s a whole line of seasonings from Big Cock Ranch. Not only do they bring your meat to the next level, they make for a hilarious conversation starter or gift!
In a small bowl, mix together the diced jalapeño pepper with the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon crumbles and chili powder.
Spread the jalapeño pepper mixture on one side of the pork. Now it’s ready to roll!
Roll up the pork tenderloin, making sure you wrap up all that goodness inside! Then, using cooking twine, tie the rolled pork tenderloin up to hold in all the ingredients.
Remember the oven safe skillet you cooked the bacon in? Bring that back over medium heat, and sear the pork tenderloin on all sides. I know it’s rolled up, so what do I mean by sides? Simply rotate it about four times to get as much of the tenderloin seared as possible (about 5 minutes on each side).
Place the pork tenderloin in the preheated oven and cook for about 15-20 minutes, making sure the internal temperature is at 165°F. Take the tenderloin out of the oven.
Sprinkle with chopped parsley and Enjoy!
Tip: While cutting the jalapeños, whatever you do, please please please don’t don’t touch your face. The oils in the peppers will BURN, I speak from experience, it’s VERY painful. The spice in jalapeños is found in the seeds and inner membranes. To reduce the heat in this recipe, clean out all of the (light colored) inner membrane and seeds. If you like lots of heat, leave a little bit of membrane.
The smells of Spanish cooking never fails to set my tastebuds alight.
Spanish food looks good and tastes great. But the smell of Spanish food cooking adds to the anticipation of dinner, and to the experience of eating it!
I loving making recipes that remind me of being a little girl at my grandparents’ houses.
I love using Chorizo in my cooking, whether it’s for my mom’s Spanish Bean Soup, a breakfast hash or tacos! It adds little richness and spice to a dish. The two most common types of chorizo here in the United States are Mexican chorizo and Spanish chorizo.
Here’s a some quick tips on the difference.
Spanish chorizo is usually cured or smoked and wrapped in a casing. It does not need any further cooking or preparation to enjoy. I like to eat Spanish chorizo as-is on a charcuterie board with cheeses and a glass of red wine.
Mexican chorizo is most commonly sold raw and must be cooked before consuming. It should be pan-fried or browned like any ground sausage. I love Mexican chorizo, it’s a highly versatile ingredient for adding huge flavor to any dish. It works seamlessly with soups, chilis, sauces, or as a topping for potatoes, pasta dishes, and breakfast hashes.
For this recipe, I used Mexican chorizo since I will stuffing it into chicken.
I always like to marinade my chicken, especially if I’m using breast. I find chicken breast to not have much flavor on it’s own.
I usually make my own marinade but I had a bottle of Goya Mojo Chipotle Marinade in the frig and it’s pretty good so I figured let’s save some time!
The first step of this recipe is to dump your chicken breast into a ziplock bag and pour enough of the marinade in to cover the chicken.
If you have the time, marinate it over night, if not at least 1 hour.
Now it’s time to get to slicing and dicing! This is where my boyfriend, Brian comes in handy!
Before you start, make sure you have a trash bowl next to your cutting board. I learned this tip from one of my favorite chefs, Rachael Ray! I use my Meme’s old metal colander, it makes me feel like she’s in the kitchen with me!
Evenly, dice the onion, garlic and red bell peppers.
Here’s another tip! When you cut your red bell pepper or any pepper make sure to cut it skin down. This will make it so much easier for your knife and you!
While you are slicing and dicing, heat your skillet. Place the chorizo in a skillet over medium heat and break it up into tiny pieces with a wooden spoon while cooking. Transfer the chorizo to a large bowl lined with a paper towel and let the oils drain from the chorizo.
Next, using that same pan, wipe out most of the oil with a paper towel, but leave some of the chorizo oil, and sauté your onion. Sprinkling the Saxon Con Azafran (I use the Baida brand). Continue to sauté for about 4-5 minutes until tender, then add the red bell pepper and sauté until tender. I add the garlic last because garlic can burn if cooked too long and that is not good for any dish. Sauté all together, for 4-5 minutes until fragrant.
Transfer the veggies and chorizo to a large bowl and stir together. This is the filing a.k.a Chorizo stuffing for your chicken!
By now, the aroma from your kitchen should be calling to your family and neighbors to come over for dinner!
PreHeat your oven to 325F
Next up, prepare the yellow rice! I personally love VIGO yellow rice! It’s made right here in Tampa! If you have never visited the VIGO store in Tampa, you must! They also offer field trips for students!
First melt the butter and EVOO in a saucepan. Then add the rice. A great tip I learned from Gordan Ramsay is to first toast your rice!
The secret to a better pan of rice lies in seasoning and flavoring the grains before they even hit that pot of boiling water.
Once the grains are coated and start to toast (you should smell a deep nutty aroma), take it a step further by tossing in some aromatics — like chopped shallots, garlic, ginger, and/or spices — into the pan. For this recipe, toss in the garlic! Toast for just a few minutes, until the rice starts to look slightly brown on the tips and smells fragrant and nutty. Then add in the 2 cups of chicken broth. Stirring occasionally, bring the broth to a boil. Cover saucepan tightly. Reduce heat to simmer and allow to cook for 20-25 minutes.
Now it’s time to take out all the stress from the day! Grab your mallet or rolling pin; chicken, and cutting board.
Place the chicken on the cutting board and cover it with wax paper or plastic wrap (keep it covered, you don’t want chicken juice on your rolling pin or mallet). After giving the chicken breast a good pounding on both sides, use your rolling pin to roll it out like pie dough to approcimately 1/4 thick (but keep it in the covered since you don’t want chicken juice on your rolling pin.)
Sprinkle Badia Sazon With Saffron over the chicken. Take a scoop of Chorizo stuffing about 1-2 tablespoons and place it at one end of the chicken breast. Do not let your scoop touch the chicken, you are going to want to save the leftover stuffing for future meals, I used mine in quesadillas the next day! It’s also good in a breakfast hash or even as a salsa!
Unravel the cheese… yup I said unravel! It’s like a ball of yarn but cheese! Super fun!
Cut 2-3 inch strips and place on top of the Chorizo stuffing.
Now roll the chicken, making sure to tuck in the cheese and stuffing. You’re basically rolling the chicken like you would a tortilla for a burrito.
You can use tooth picks or kitchen twine to tie the chicken, so it does not come undone. I used twine but tooth picks are much easier. 😉
Heat a cast iron skillet on medium heat and drizzle with EVOO. You don’t have to use cast iron – a large skillet will do but I much prefer cooking with cast iron!
Sear the stuffed chicken breasts for 4 minutes on each side until browned. (They will not be fully cooked. You will finish them off in the oven.)
Some of the cheese will ooze out, but don’t worry it will taste amazing like fried cheese!
Take the skillet off of the heat, and pour in 1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth. Place the skillet into the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165F.
Now it’s time to plate the dish! I love creating the presentation of the meal!
Take a ladle and press the rice to form a dome, then place the chicken next to it with the cheese oozing onto the plate. YUM!
Get creative and post your plated presentation below in the comments, I’d love to see it!!!

Whether you’re entertaining or making these Crab Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms for a weeknight dinner, this recipe will not disappoint. I love to serve these stuffed mushrooms over a simple shaved Brussel sprouts but feel free to serve over rice, pasta or even as an appetizer on their own.
Where to find the crab meat?
Look for pasteurized jumbo, lump crab in the seafood section of the supermarket. The regular lump crab or even claw meat blends perfectly with the sour cream mixture and goes a lot farther.
Here’s another trick… for mushrooms that’ll hold their shape when stuffed: roast them first, before adding the filling, to draw out some of their extra moisture.
The Brussel Sprouts Salad
Whoever made Brussel sprouts the new cool veggie, thank you! For a while, roasted was the only way I ate Brussel sprouts and then one day I tried the shredded brussel sprouts salad at Cooper’s Hawk and my mind was blown! It’s so simple and doesn’t require a salad dressing, just shredded parmesan cheese, lemon zest and lemon juice.
I like to use my food processor to shred the sprouts but you can also use a mandoline slicer or sharp knife. For this recipe, I also like to roast about a ½ cup of the sprouts to add a little more flavor and texture. You choose what you like! And you feel free to serve this salad alone or with my crab stuffed mushrooms.
24 large baby Bella mushrooms (about 1 lb.)
Olive oil cooking spray
8 oz fresh lump crabmeat
¼ cup scallions chopped
6 tablespoons nonfat sour cream
¼ cup Parmesan grated
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon dried thyme
¼ teaspoon black pepper
⅛ teaspoon paprika
Brussel sprout salad
1 pound brussels sprouts
½ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
Lemon zest and juice of one lemon
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
Preheat the broiler, setting the temperature on high. Set an oven rack in the middle of the oven (this will prevent the mushrooms from scorching under the broiler). Line a broiler-safe rimmed baking sheet with foil.
Use damp paper towels to gently wipe the mushrooms clean. Gently twist the stems off. Spray the mushrooms with olive oil on both sides. Broil in the middle of the oven until just tender, 2-3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
Transfer the crabmeat to a medium bowl, feeling through the meat to make sure no shell pieces remain.
Add the remaining ingredients except for the paprika and mix well until fully combined.
Spoon the crab mixture into the mushrooms, dividing it evenly. Each mushroom should hold about 2 tablespoons of filling. Pack the filling into the mushrooms and pile it high.
Sprinkle the stuffed mushrooms with paprika.
Arrange the mushrooms, filling side up, back on the baking sheet.
Lightly spray them with olive oil.
Broil the mushrooms briefly, just until the filling is warm and golden, for about 3 minutes.
Brussel Sprouts Salad
Shave the Brussel sprouts using a food processor and place in a large bowl, breaking them up with your hands and discarding any tough pieces.
Take ¼ cup of the sprouts and place on a baking sheet. Broil for ten minutes until the edges are brown and crispy.
Toss the cooked and raw sprouts in a large bowl with the lemon zest and juice until coated. Let sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes to allow the sprouts to soften and the flavors to combine.
Before serving, toss in the grated parmesan and taste again for seasonings, adding more salt and pepper, if needed.
This light and healthy meal, Pan seared scallops with warm asparagus and salad with orange dressing comes together in just 20 minutes. It can be made with scallops or with other fish like salmon, cod, snapper, halibut, or sea bass… or even grilled chicken. The dressing is very universal- citrusy and flavorful and perfect on so many things!
For the dressing
1/4 cup orange juice
3 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
freshly ground black pepper
For the scallops
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the salad
1 small bunch asparagus cut in about 3 inch pieces
6 cups baby kale
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
2 oranges peeled and cut into segments
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon olive oil
Make the dressing
In a small bowl, whisk together the orange juice, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Adjust seasoning to taste.
Cook the scallops
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, heat about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Working in batches, lightly season the scallops with salt and pepper, and sear for about 2 minutes, or until golden brown on one side. Flip the scallops and cook for about 2-3 minutes more, until the other side is also golden brown. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Make the salad
Bring about an inch of water to a boil in a deep-sided skillet or sauté pan. When the water is bubbling, salt the water, then drop the asparagus and cook the asparagus for about 2 minutes, or until bright green. Strain the asparagus in a sieve, running it under cold running water. Set aside.
Return the skillet to the stove and heat it over medium heat. Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil, and drop in the kale and red onion. Stir the kale and cook for about 1-2 minutes, then add the asparagus and about 2 tablespoons of the dressing.
Transfer the asparagus and kale into bowls.
Top with scallops, orange segments and a sprinkling of sesame seeds. Serve with additional dressing.
