Eggs, Toast and a Cup of Joe

January 24th

Not Even a Glimpse of Hillary Pie

4 eggs, whisked in a large bowl
1 cup milk
1 cup of cheese — I used a mix of feta and cheddar
veggies of your liking — I used asparagas, broccoli and spinach that I steamed beforehand and a tomato for garnish
1 small onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of olive oil
dash of salt, pepper
Pie crust of your liking. For the pie I used frozen phyllo I had in the freezer. For the mini quiche, I used a pie crust I made at Christmas and had lfrozen, left-over.

Heat the oven to 375. Grease your pie plate or cupcake tin. Make sure your pie crust is thawed and place in plate. If you are using a basic pie crust recipe for the mini quiche, take a small ball of pastry and smush it into the bottom of the greased tin.

In a saucepan, heat your oil and add your minced garlic and onion. Cook 7-10 minutes, until translucent. Add other vegetables and 1/2 of cheese, until thoroughly mixed. Add your milk to the whisked eggs. Add a dash of salt and pepper to the egg/milk mixture. Then pour veggies into this bowl and mix thoroughly. Pour into pie crust. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and add a tomato for garnish, if so desired. Bake 40-50 minutes — until eggs are golden and your kitchen smells like breakfast nirvana.


Holy hell. I saw “There Will Be Blood” last night and it is really good. The acting is superb. Daniel Day Lewis is so creepy and enchanting. Paul Dano, the icky brother from “Little Miss Sunshine,” is absurdly believeable. It is a violent, but great flick. I liked the storyline of “No Country for Old Men” better; it was more intriguing. However, the acting in “There Will Be Blood” is unreal. Five out of five bananas, absoloodle.

Cup of Joe:

Need a great book? Pick up, A Year of Pleasures by Elizabeth Berg. If I could jump into this book and live with the characters, I would in a heartbeat. Sweet, charming, great read. Four out of five bananas.

  1. I just wanted to say that I’m in the middle of A Year of Pleasures and I’m loving this book as well. Anything by Elizabeth Berg is excellent, in my opinion.

  2. i read that book just recently! a nice read. and i’ve always been a daniel day lewis fan, tho i wasn’t sure about the new film. hmmm…perhaps…

  3. Paul Dano was also in Emperor’s Club (a poor man’s Dead Poets Society starring Kevin Kline) and Girl Next Door. Our boy Emile Hirsch from Into The Wild was also in both of those movies.

    And i don’t think i’ll ever think of having a bowling alley in my house the same again…

  4. Thanks for the recipe. I’ve read a number of Elizabeth Berg’s books. Durable Goods was the first one I read and then every time I saw she had written another one I would want to read it!

  5. I totally agree… DDL IS totally creepy and enchanting at the same time. And I’ve only seen the promos 🙂

  6. I will surely try the recipe, and I’ll let you know how it came out. And thanks for the book tip, always grateful for a good reading.

  7. thanks for the recipe!
