This is another DIY night so feel free to wing it and do whatever you would like with eggs tonight...some of our favorites are below:
I LOVE eggs...so much so that I often say if I was stuck on a desert island for the rest of my life with only one food to eat eggs would be my immediate choice. So versatile, delicious and nutritious. That means when I find an egg meal worthy of dinner I get very excited. A friend of mine shared this recipe with me that she found a while ago on smittenkitchen.com (which is a fab site that I aspire to be even 50% as great as some day!) and swears she makes it at least once a month now, so I’m looking forward to adding it to my recipe repertoire!
Christian’s a good cook, but can get a bit flustered at times so the fact that he told me that this was an easy recipe means it really is easy which makes it perfect for weeknights. And we both think that it turned out a restaurant quality soup...so much so that we had a hard time restraining ourselves and saving enough for our leftovers night!
The recipe below uses dark chocolate since that's our favorite, but you could also use milk or white if that's your preference. Depending on how big your sweet tooth is, this should serve about 6.
When it comes to cheese fondue, I'm a traditionalist. There are lots of recipes out there for Mexican cheese fondue or other versions but I absolutley love the traditional European style fondue which is what the recipe is for below. This is another one of those recipes that I'm sure I got from somewhere, but I've been making it for so long that I'm not sure what the original source was and I think I've modified it a bit over the years. Enjoy!
We've been making this summer soup for years, it's from my favorite soup cookbook, "Soup: Superb Ways with a Classic Dish." Many Italian summer minestrone recipes include pesto to stir in at the end, but this is so flavorful that I don't feel that it's necessary. Helps keep the calorie count down as well so I can dip big chunks of whole grain bread in it instead!
