eggmufinsWhile I know that breakfast is an important meal, I admit that I often have a difficult time eating a good breakfast. I’m usually hustling out the door to work or an exercise activity without a lot of time to make something healthy. My typical meal is grabbing a granola bar and coffee that I can eat at my desk or in the car.


But I’m trying to get better about what I eat. So I was happy to discover a new dish for easy to make egg muffins. The eggs provide good protein and the extra ingredients help fill me up. The size makes them easy to pop in the microwave to heat.


I’ll provide the basic recipe below but you can use any ingredients that you want! Make all vegetable, add some meat or bake with just eggs. Here’s the recipe:





12 large eggs

1/2 cup red peppers, chopped

1/2 cup green peppers, chopped

1/2 cup shredded cheese

1 cup mushrooms, chopped

1/2 cup turkey pepperoni, finely sliced (optional)

1/2 cup bacon bits (optional)

Salt, pepper (or other seasonings) to taste


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.


Break eggs into mixing bowl and whisk until combined. Add ingredients to eggs and mix well. Season to taste.


Coat muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Pour egg mixture evenly into 12 muffin cups (I use a 1/3 measuring cup for easy filling). Bake 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean.


Place remaining egg muffins in sealed container and refrigerate. Enjoy!


Made in Michigan event showcases local products and businesses May 7, 2016


Homemade soap and scrub

There are so many reasons to love Michigan! Good food, wine, beer, home goods, people, parks and more! Yes, I’m probably partial since I’m a proud Michigander, but I’m sure you’ll agree once you try all that the state has to offer to residents and visitors.

The annual Made in Michigan show, running through today in downtown Mount Clemens (in Macomb County), is a great opportunity to check out some of the Michigan-based companies that produce Michigan-made items. All products featured are grown, manufactured, assembled or made in the mitten state.

I’m a big proponent of supporting Michigan businesses so was happy when my mom invited me to attend with her yesterday. We checked out the many vendors selling a variety of products, ranging from food, beauty care, clothing, yard items, art, jewelry and more. Some of my favorite vendors include Grandma Luckey’s delicious garden herb dressing, Enchanted Oak Alpaca Farm’s handmade natural body items, and VP’s Yard Art.

There are several small businesses throughout downtown Mount Clemens that offer some nice shopping experiences. We decided to stop at Bath City Bistro for dinner. The local restaurant has a diverse array of food items on the menu, including many salads, sandwiches, calzones and appetizers.

The Made in Michigan event continues through today, Saturday, May 7, from 10am-6pm. A band, Music Messengers, perform 1-6pm. There is no charge for the event.

What are some of your favorite Michigan-made products?
