  1. I really enjoy most of your recipes. I would love too see more dessert recipes, with very little sugar..and without the sugar substitutes.
    Thank you.

  2. Yummy! I skip the pepper and add less than the whole bunch Of aspargus (I use maybe half?). When cooking those asparagus pieces on the stove, I use a little butter and a little oil until the asparagus turns bring green and then add in my scrambled eggs. I also add a little cheese (cheddar or mozzarella work well) into the eggs, and then once plated I add some shredded cheddar to melt on top… delicious! Easy breakfast to make for myself that’ll keep me going through most of the day

  3. I love scrambled eggs with asparagus!Like the previous commentor, I also saute the asparagus in a pan with olive oil until it turns bright green and add my egg mixture afterwards. I have to have tomatoes in my recipe, though. They add a certain moistness to the dish. Plus, the vibrant red of the tomatoes really makes for a more interesting food photo. Keep up your awesome recipes!

  4. Yeah, I am a real tomato lover, Erin! Lol. Since I just started getting into food photography I’ve become really conscious of incorporating vibrant, contrasting colors into my recipes. I’ve become so obsessed with this my wife thinks I’m nuts!
