Eggs in Purgatory

So after I posted a picture of my breakfast on FB, my friends & family asked for a recipe. It's super easy & yummy!

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small clove garlic (peeled)
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon Harissa or Siracha
1 x 14 oz can diced tomatoes
½ teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
2-4 large egg (as needed)
1 cup spinach (if you like)

Place the first six ingredients in a pan. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Add spinach & cook till wilted. Add eggs & cook till your preferred done-ness. It's that easy. I served with crusty bread.

May the 4th be with you

It's been awhile since I've been able post. This is not a recipe or restaurant post. Simply want to wish you all a Happy Independence Day. Be safe this weekend with your family & friends where ever you are.

I'm heading to a friend's for a BBQ. And I'm bringing this little nerdy crowd pleaser...

Happy Valentine's Day & Snow Day

It has been an adventure in snow here in the DC area. The original plan was to head down to Loundoun Grown; which is a local county food, wine, & spirits festival. However, since some of the roads had about 18" of snow to traverse through, plans to attend have been changed.

So my Valentine & I went grocery shopping and so I decided to put together an AWESOME charcuterie platter: Primus 2010 "The Blend" wine, dark chocolate covered cherries/coconut/banana chips/cranberries/blueberries, coco dusted almonds, salt n pepper pistachios, various grapes, blackberries, blueberry goat cheese, cranberry goat cheese, french brie, prosciutto, peppered salami, fresh baguette, brown buttered 3 cheese ravioli, marinate mozzarella balls, & various water crackers.
